Innkeepers to pay

Britain's Court of Appeal ordered Christian innkeepers to pay $5,800 in damages to a gay couple.

The innkeepers had argued that they weren't discriminating against the gay men, but permitting the couple to share a bedroom went against their belief that sex outside marriage was a sin.
