British hotels told to accept gay couples
by UPI

LONDON -- Britain's new equality law means homosexual couples have the same right to a hotel room as do married couples, it was reported Monday.

Owners of hotels and guest houses have complained the law that took effect in April forces them to violate their religious beliefs by condoning homosexuality, The Telegraph reported.

A government official insists, however, couples must be treated the same and married couples must be banned from sleeping together if homosexual couples are being denied common rooms, The Telegraph reported.

Meg Munn, a minister in the Department for Communities and Local Government, said hotel owners who refuse same-sex couples should seek another line of work, The Telegraph reported.
