It is a very tricky situation. It is a clash between the freedom of religion and the equality of sexuality. Either way, one is going to loose out. I support the bill because I believe in the freedom of those people who wish to retain their religious values and beliefs. Religion has been an important aspect of this country for hundreds or even thousands of years. Today, homosexuals have increased rights, and rightly so. Thank goodness they are no longer executed, burned or imprisoned. Christians in the past may have believed in that, but Christians today don't. In fact, Christians today aren't calling for any punishment for homosexuals. All Christians want today is a society where they have the freedom of thought and belief. Not the kind of thought where they want homosexuals to be punished, but the thought and belief that they don't want certain activities going on inside their own home, such as with the case of the hotel owners. Homosexuals do deserve to have rights in our equal and civil society, but I just don't believe this right should invade the rights of others in every single case.
No, I understand the need to clarify the law on sexual orientation equality, particularly in relation to the examples stated, but an amendment to The Equality Act would be a far better way to accomplish this.
A repeal is ridiculous.
