Club grants, then revokes pool membership of gay couple and son
William Trinkle is suing Roanoke Athletic Club and its affiliate, Carilion Clinic, for breach of contract and violation of the Virginia Consumer Protection Act.
Trinkle says that he purchased a family membership in May for himself, his partner, Juan Granados, and their 2-year-old son, Oliver.
Club officials approved their application, and the family started using the facilities.
Trinkle and Granados said they were shocked when they were turned away from the pool. Club officials told them same-sex couples don't meet Virginia's legal definition of family.

No trinkeling in the pool.
There isn't any in-between.
Poor kid another one has to suffer humiliation of the queer club !
>> himself, his partner... and their 2-year-old son
THEY do not have a son.
It’s not a birth canal, it’s a duct for eliminating waste.
There still seems to be a lot of confusion on this common-sense matter.
Poor little child. No doubt he’ll be molested or grow up gay.
I wonder how this lawsuit is going to end up. Why can’t they get two individual membership and then a child’s membership. Of course that would not help their TRUE agenda.
If the Sodomites take this case to the SCOTUS, they will win.
Ahhh yes, the gratuitous O&A reference.
Yes, well all this reproductive technology - IVF, surrogacy, sperm donors - as well as gay adoption, has divorced the idea of a child being the natural product of its married mother and father.
Now, “there are all kinds of families”: Through adoption, surrogacy, sperm donation,etc.
It was a clever way to kill the nuclear family and its biological etiology. There is even a bill in the state of California to allow a child to have several “parents” (”my 2 gay dads, and my surrogate mom who used her own egg and womb and one of their sperm to make me, then she was paid to give me up, and they adopted me”.)
Once you redefine marriage (and several states have set the precedent, regardless of what Virginia says) then it follows logically that you MUST redefine “family”.
You mean Marco Homo?
See how this works? You are going to be forced to accept sodomites in close proximity to your family whether you like to or not. My guess is that the pool owners thought to themselves—if we go “gay” friendly, we can kiss many of our normal members goodbye. Why? Because as “tolerant” of sodomites as people may claim to be, the idea of one of them half-naked in the men’s room with your 12 year old son is enough to make even most liberal moms think, “maybe another pool...”
How would they know the couple was gay? Unless they were doing something in public deemed a PDA.
“How would they know the couple was gay? “
They obviously wanted a “family” membership, so signed up as “parents and child”. I think it was done purposely, in order to wage this lawsuit. “Help Repeal DOMA; start lawsuits about unfair practices against decent gay families!!!”
It appears they signed up for a “family membership”.
Of course, if they can define themselves as a “family”, there’s no barrier to ANY other “group” defining themselves as a “family”.
A Family membership requires a family.
2 perverts and a child do not a family make.
Think the pool has a good standing under the law as it still stands today. Of course if we get another 4 years of Obama, Pelosi, et al, a family will become 3 guys a women 2 dogs a goat and 3 children
” You mean Marco Homo?”
That was a LOT better than mine.
All of these must be redefined in order to make a sick lifestyle seem normal.
