CHICAGO (Reuters) - A gay couple filed a human rights complaint on Monday against a Chicago-area taxi company because a driver told them to leave his cab after they kissed in the back seat.

The couple, Matthew McCrea, 30, of Chicago, and Steven White, 29, of West Hollywood, California, say they had exchanged a brief kiss in the back of a Sun Taxi cab when the driver pulled over on a busy expressway on a rainy night and told them to get out.

So, they were likely screwing in the backseat. He was right to kick them out.

"...shared a brief kiss..."

It was only 30 minutes or so.

It is his cab and he can kick out passengers for what ever reason he wants.

Freedom of association. His cab, his rules.

If he had thrown out a Christian couple, would anybody be making a fuss?

Yep. Poor guy, the Pink Mafia is going to go jihad on him.

They were trying to beat down Lot’s door at Sodom and Gomorrah.

As it was in the days of Lot, so shall it be in the days of the Coming of the Son of Man.

Time was, there would have been no complaint because both of them would have been shot dead and dropped in Lake Michigan.

Why not just dump the corpses in South Chicago where no one would notice?

I was sick of this bunch of whining girly men a looonnggg time ago. Honestly, when I hear their silly, lispy, stupid voices it makes me sick. What on earth has happened to MEN? Pride? What’s wrong with them? They are proud that they want to have sexual relations with other men? Ewwwww.

There’s no real decision for them to make, because they’re never held accountable. When’s the last time you heard a gay (who almost all of the time is also a liberal) put his own political allies on the spot to question them about how gays are treated by Muslims? Won’t ever happen. It’s easier for libs as a group to just blame the Tea Party for everything under the sun, and the media enables them to get away with it. What a mess they are making.

I was driving a yellow cab in NYC in the 80’s and 2 queers started kissing in the back.

I gunned the engine and got it up to about 75 mph down pothole covered streets and pulling about 3 G ‘s every time I made a turn.

Those faggots where holding on for dear life and were bouncing around in the back like bowling pins. Got them to where they were going in about 3 minutes flat.

I was chuckling pretty good after they jumped out

They were hoping they were on the HBO Show Taxicab Confessions, but the only film it in New York and Las Vegas, not Chicago.

Hint, none of the Cab Drivers on the Show are Muslims.

Why should a cab driver have to put up with any couple making out in the back seat, whether they’re gay or straight?

“Human Rights Complaint”, WTH is that?

You have a “right” to a Cab ride now?

Where’s the Amber Lamps when you need one?

On the positive side...at least they were only “kissing”.

I am surprised that the driver did not puke on them instead of asking them to get out.

Men living with men are friends. Women living with women are friends. Some people are uncomfortable with heterosexual couples making out in public. Same sex couples doing that is unnatural and repulsive to many, if not most people in the world.

I agree. Probably not just “a kiss.” They would probably expel a hetero couple from most places if they were carrying on sexually over the top in public. Kids today say “get a room” to peers who are being rude like that.

Just like the lesbo feme-nazis used to do. What a coincidence. A new shake down game.

We lost freedom of association a long time ago. When they passed anti-discrimination laws that applied to private businesses, the camel’s nose was in the tent.

People may recoil at the idea, but individuals and private enterprises have the right (or ought to!) to discriminate against anyone for any reason. Government is the only entity that cannot discriminate. And, if you think that is somehow racist, Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams are racist, too.
