Good religious UK folk united in their hatred of gays.

Meanwhile back in Olde Englande, the land of enchantment, Jews Muslims and Christians have come together...united in their hatred of homosexuals.

A simple piece of legislation outlawing discrimination against gays has caused them to put their traditional mutual antagonisms on hold, until such time this "wicked" law is rejected by the House of Lords.

The religious case seems to revolve around the prospect of a guest house owner "forced" to give a double bed to a gay couple. The religious beliefs of the guest house owner would thus be compromised.

(No-one seems to have given the obvious answer that if you rent out rooms in which people tend to have sex, and you object to them having sex in the room you rented, then you're in the wrong business mate.)

The law would make it illegal to put up a sign saying "No Gays".

Actually I think it should be compulsory, if thats how they really feel. Homosexuals would stay away and hopefully all decent people too and "No Gays" would soon be replaced by "No Business".

I find it quite astonishing that in 2007 legislation which protects discrimination against a minority should be seen as an attack the rights of other minorities to carry on being discriminatory. But on the other hand nothing surprises me anymore.

Heard this on the radio this morning. It seems that the legal argument the attorneys for the plaintiffs is presenting is that the law requiring them to accommodate homosexuals interferes with the landlords' freedom of religion. What happens when two 'rights' collide? The Law Lords have to sort it out, of course, and said Lords wish they'd gone into bookmaking instead.

It's really quite amusing to see what sorts of non-issues can bring Orthodox Jews, fundamentalist Christians and militant Muslims together.

A report about that "demonstration" and a leader in today's Guardian:

Religious rally opposes new gay rights laws

In praise of... the sexual orientation regulations
