A bed and breakfast in Illinois is currently under attack by a homosexual couple who filed a complaint with the state Human Rights Commission. The complaint by the two men is based on the owners of the TimberCreek Bed and Breakfast refusing to allow their property to be used for same-gender civil union ceremonies, which are now legal in Illinois.
Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) attorney Bryan Beauman says about the owners of the bed and breakfast, “They’re willing to host weddings for marriages, but they decline to host any civil union ceremonies for both same-sex or opposite-sex couples. But we just believe this discrimination charge is baseless.”
The owners rejected the homosexual pair’s request on the basis of their strongly held religious beliefs.
“Constitutional, state law guarantees religious freedom for every American, including business owners, and that applies to owners of TimberCreek Bed and Breakfast,” says Beauman. “These complaints ignore those basic fundamental freedoms and they’re just further examples of the threat that the homosexual legal agenda poses to every American’s basic rights.”
