Those who operate a business, typically have local ordinances and other contracts with their gov'ts for doing so. That's why so many people with businesses who suddenly use an invisible religious test, LOSE in court. It's not because they are Christian or anti gay, necessarily, it's because they breached the contracts they agreed to when opening their businesses. Gay people don't have any choice in being married, and even when they are, can't count on that relationship being recognized. What that couple did, was the equivalent of what the Lovings faced when THEY traveled as a mixed couple. No different, no less wrong.

They had been in the B&B business for years before these laws took affect. Were they discriminating against the non-married anymore than the Gay couple? No, they were following their Christian beliefs. There are other B&Bs that would be happy to have the business this couple turned away.

When the law changes, the way Jim Crow did, this couple was still obligated to comply with the current laws.
Their form of discrimination is inconsistent even with their beliefs. They didn't apply it equally, nor legally. That's why they lost. This has nothing to do with whether or not another inn could take this couple, innkeepers are not supposed to operate this way.
There are CIVIL rules working here, not DIVINE ones.

In cases of conscience which takes priority? Civil law, or God's Will?

A well-liked, Christian man in England had his salary reduced by 40% after posting a comment on his Facebook page in which he stated that the government should not force churches to perform same-sex “marriage” ceremonies. And a Christian couple running a bed and breakfast in their family home in England was fined almost $6,000 for hurting the feelings of a gay couple by refusing to rent a room to them. The headline to Amanda Platell’s report on the first of these two cases said it all: “The real hate crime is persecuting a decent man for his beliefs.”
