More reverse discrimination - UK not a free society

This is a sad case. Clearly, these two men felt aggrieved. But shouldn't everyone be entitled to choose who they rent a room in their house to? And why must everytime someone feels insulted they run to a court or tribunal screaming 'discrimination'?

As the Christian owner said:
'We believe a person should be free to act upon their sincere beliefs about marriage under their own roof without living in fear of the law.
'Equality laws have gone too far when they start to intrude into a family home.
'People’s beliefs about marriage are coming under increasing attack and I am concerned about people’s freedom to speak and act upon these beliefs'

A society is not a liberal and free one where tribunals intrude on people lives and homes in this way.

GetUp - apolitical and independent?

'GetUp is an independent...organisation'
'GetUp does not back any particular party'

Really? That's odd considering the recently departed GetUp boss is aiming to despatch the Liberal Senator for the Australian Capital Territory, Gary Humphries. And of course at the 2007 election they published a website that always put Coalition candidates last regardless of information put in - something they were warned about by the Australian Electoral Commission was 'misleading and deceptive'

But can anything they say on their website be believed? After all they say
'GetUp is a not-for-profit organisation and relies on small donations to fund its work and in-kind donations from the Australian public. GetUp does not accept donations from political parties or the Government.'

These are the same people who accepted a rather large $1.2 million donation from the far-left Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union in 2010 to fund an anti-Tony Abbott ad.
