The difference between good and bad is not so self-evident, it has taken thousands of years of work by generation after generation of civilized humans operating within civilization frameworks to develop. That’s even if one discounts the impact of the giving of the Laws to Moses and the Israelites.

The most cherished and perishable of legacies passed from one generation to the next are the moral laws, the rules of good and bad as established after the work of hundreds of generations.

It is in utter ruination that we allow the empty “morality” of relativism and the anti-G-dly “morality” of secularism to become our legacy to our children. It is empty, it will leave them with nothing but chaos, ruin and despair.

And we see it happening already, the current generation lacks any true moral rudder — instead the most evil steer these young sheep straight to the slaughtering pens.

I wonder how “differently” they were treated. Imho, it is perfectly possible that their assessment of what happened is colored by a combination of paranoia and self-centeredness, with a bit of exhibitionism playing a part.

Perhaps they should have a seperate resort for the 1% of the 2% that want to simulate normal marriage.

I faintly recall that there used to be a couple of such resorts many years ago. They got closed pretty quick after some sort of an environmental problem. I guess the time is ripe to open new ones, for the same purpose.

My questions: (1) Did the couple tell the company that they were same-sex couple when they made reservation? (2) Is there anything in the brochures, website, etc., indicating that they cater to heterosexual couples only?

This happened in the UK, where gay marriage has been legal for sometime. Any company who deals with honeymoon should have prepared that some same sex couples would take up their offers. If they don't want to deal with it, at least they need to put in their ads. To me, it's okay to turn down the couple if the company doesn't want to serve them for whatever reason. But, it's not okay to take their money and treat them differently.

I’m sick and tired of these people shoving their lifestyle down our throats. They knew from the beginning this would be a problem but they wanted to make trouble and they did. It didn’t take them long to get in the news did it?

I could care less what they do but in this instance they could have gone to Sanibel Island where their lifestyle would have been accepted.

You want to flaunt your disorder for attention.

You spoke the magic word....DISORDER

As hard as the homo's try to normalize their disorder and perversion, as it once was the diagnosis for decades, the vast majority of people will not recognize it and only cow-tow to PC to maintain decorum and peace

At some point we will start pushing them back into the closet

“worst two weeks” of their lives
*************************
Oh give me a break! If it was— then they have more issues than how they were presumptively treated at a hotel. If it is THAT bad - leave - demand your money back. (but that would be less victim-ish, eh?)

I am so sick of the victim class, they are too self centered and too sensitive, everything is about how they perceive something.

I seriously think they won’t be happy until straight people aren’t allowed marriage. I’m all for it!

No more marriage recognized by gov’ts—ALL considered civil unions. Marriage belongs in the churches and it is between a man, woman and God.

Maybe they didn’t feel the same as the other couples because..... THEY WEREN’T the same. I didn’t read that anyone called them names or lobbed food at them.

This stuff is driving me batty and I think it is taking a toll on the kids, too. These people would suck the breath from every other person so that they may FEEL better.

They were probably in a paradise location, but because all they could do was obsess over not getting treated like a honeymoon couple they had a miserable time. It’s sad; if they had gotten over themselves they could have had a great time.

You’re right. I think that they should sue that company into bankruptcy for any perceived difference in treatment, regardless of fact or presentation of proof. What’s that expression? “Perception is reality”?

"They just did not treat us the same as everybody else," Ms Harman told Real Radio.

Once upon a time, long, long ago, a honeymoon was for couples to unite with one another, ostensibly for the first time. Male and female genitalia are constructed for union. How you achieve "union" with male/male or female/female genitalia? What were those women thinking? Highlighting female/female "union" at a honeymoon facility is not a good idea, IMO.

Because its a British company and this occurred in the Dominican Republic I don't know what the legalities are but it should be obvious that a 'honeymoon resort' is, surprise, surprise, going to cater to heterosexual couples, not lesbians. If any resort starts allowing same-sex couples pretending that they're 'married' to be included in honeymoon events they are definitely going to start losing the vast majority (98%) of heterosexual couples that don't care to have other peoples sexual perversion and mockery of marriage shoved in their face during what should be a very pleasant time of their life. Zero sympathy here for these females. They want the world to pretend they are 'normal' and 'married'. They are not normal and their ersatz 'marriage' is like spitting into the face of heterosexual couples who chose to wed. No wonder they were excluded. They shouldn't have been there.

INSERT YEAR FOR HEADLINES the way we’re going.

incest couple treated disgracefully after they are married.

The couple were treated awful due ot the fact that the hotels did not look at their marriage as normal

Or
Bestiality couple treated badly on honeymoon
The hotel staff refused entry to the mans dog saying they did not expect this kind of marriage

or
child and man married but had horrible honeymoon .

Hotel staff reported the man who was later arrested. on his bail release he said the police were bigots and haters and could nto understand that in todays world people still carried this hate.

These people are freaks and I’m not sorry that she bought the strap on dildo where she could not use it and pretend she was a man.

Honey, you’re not the same as everyone else. Everyone else knows that a nut and a bolt join together and are strong. You believe that two nuts can do the same. You’re either stupid or confused, but regardless, you’re not the same as everybody else.

“but they claim the company refused to acknowledge their holiday as a honeymoon and say they did not receive the special treatment offered to others because they were a same-sex couple. Ms Harman was so angry she contacted a local radio station to complain about “homophobic manner” in which they were treated.”

‘Sounds lik the perfect resort for heterosexual newlyweds. And a great , free advert for the resort.

Actually civil unions are law in the UK not homosexual marriage.

The Govt and Cameron are looking at this issue right now but there is a lot of people against them getting married.

Therefore technically they were never really married and even if they were then when one goes to a country we respect their laws not they respect our laws.
We would not allow 4 muslim women for a muslim man and Saudi would not allow homosexuals .

These kind of people always think it’s about them because the media defends them and then they cry a river, well tough the majority do not agree with them and it is high time people spoke up in public against it.

It seems that some groups of people purposefully go into a situation looking for discord. This gives them a reason to call attention to imagined slights and to garner sympathy, file lawsuits and change the world. I have heard of too many gays doing this- remember the butt pirate in Texas who called the police to say someone broke into his house then engaged in anal sex (Ick) just as the police arrived so he would be arrested? He was able to challenge the law about gay sex. The gays love this. When they successfully challenge laws that call their behavior what it is, they become gay folk heroes and celebrated wherever their gay selves go by gay people everywhere.

That being said, those women are just plain nasty looking and I wouldn’t touch them with someone else’s vagina.

I stand corrected. My question, however, stands: does the company state that they only cater to the heterosexual honeymooners? And does 'honeymoon' only applies to those who legally married--and not to civil union? When my wife and I took advantage of such honeymoon package, they didn't ask for our wedding certificate. So, anyone can claim about honeymooning whether they are really just married or not.

I'm not going to go to the issue whether it's perception or fact. Each of us has a lot of stories about how hotels/restaurants treat us badly, and both sides (hotel/restaurant and us) can argue until the cow comes home whether they're perception or fact, and God knows who's right.

My point is, the company should state that they cater specifically to heterosexual honeymooners. Otherwise, they have to prepare such thing happens. And if it does, they need to treat the customers equally. It may be against the law for a company to say they cater only to heterosexual couples, but I think companies should be allowed to cater customers to their competency--in this case heterosexual couples.

They were treated differently because they are different. They aren’t married. Marriage is between one man and one woman, and I don’t care how many people they sue, how many laws they change, if they get the state to redefine marriage, and if the whole world is cheering them on. I’m not saying that out of hatred and intolerance; I’m saying it because it’s the truth, the absolute truth which comes from God. If you truly care about people, you won’t lie to them; you will share the truth even if it may hurt their feelings.

I like to refer such people as "Lesbians of Necessity".

Far uglier women than those two have successfully married men, raised children, lived to a ripe old age with their husband.

If you wanna be happy for the rest of your life ...

They're lesbians because something is mentally wrong with them.

No problem it is a common view you wrote. No I don't think they should say which kind of marriage they allow or want. The person on the vacation should look at the country/laws where they're going to and then make a decision on if they want to go there. They should not go to a country and then expect that hotel will cater to them. For instance, I or you would not go to a homosexual cruise. I could and then once refused go to court for discrimination, go to a radio station and cry but lets face it most of us are not like that . So why are they like that? There is a need, well maybe not a need but mroe of a view in that small community that everyone has to cater to them. I know if I saw a homosexual person kissing another one on my vacation etc then I'd be pissed and I bet so would all the other guests. Here is the trouble IMHO. They've been told off the media for a decade now that they're normal but once they leave their circle they find to their amazement people do not accept their ways What you're asking is all hotels in the world to say what kind of couples or marriage they cater too. It's not possible, we live here but outside of this country most countries have more stringent laws about homosexuals. They need to understand that.

Hahaha... no, worries. And no, I won’t go to gay cruise...LOL I understand what you’re saying. The thing is, this is a honeymoon package, not just hotel. So, it is about ‘couple’. I don’t like it, but in a liberal environment we live today, it’s not wise to be unprepared for such thing to happen. eHarmony, I think, learned it in a hard way. Had they specified in the website that they catered only to heterosexual customers because they’re lacking the expertise to deal with homosexual relationship, they wouldn’t have hit with the lawsuit.

Face this homo’s: Being homosexual is not normal. Amost all people are uncomfortable around homosexuals. This is normal. While tolerated, homosexual behavior is never normal, and will never be treated as such.

That might happen in places where every one is forced to play make believe with the mentally ill. However in the real world it does not.

“Far uglier women than those two have successfully married men, raised children, lived to a ripe old age with their husband.”

While I agree with that, I would like to point out that this was more common in the past, and people seem to be much more shallow now.

Also, I live in NW Florida which seems to have become absolutely infested with lesbians. I don’t recall seeing so many of them when I used to live in New Orleans. I’ve been here for 6 years, and I have probably seen 2 gay males that I could recognize as gay, but thousands of lesbians.

From my observations, almost none of them were what I would call attractive females. In fact some of the are so unbelievably ugly that I developed the term “Lesbians of Necessity”.

I would also definitely agree that something is mentally wrong with them. I do not believe they were born with this preference for one second. If this is a feature of birth, it has increased in frequency at some exponential rate in the past decade or so.

This leads me to believe that they are either choosing to live this way, or they are being manufactured.
