    I can't wait to hear the rationalization and bullshit for why this is any different than if a "conservative Christian" hotel banned homosexuals or if a hotel owned by white people banned blacks.......

    Because it's Australia, zagshit, and we don't give a fuck what they do in Australia.
    What does Australia have to do with the "conservative Christian" lunatics in this Country?

    Hey, they've banned lesbians as well so it's not an anti-hetero thing.

    And I guess the transgendered are probably not on the welcome list.

    Besides, given the level of homophobia in Australia, probably a good thing.

    To Zag, it has everthing to do with it. It's called "grasping at straws"

    Oh that's right - because if an Australian chain of hotels decided to ban blacks there wouldn't be calls from left-wing lunatic fringe in this country to boycott and embargo everything from Crocodile Dundee to Outback Steakhouse.

    You people are a joke.

    The ultimate rationalization -- "we reserve the right to serve who we want as long as those who we exclude aren't from one of the groups we've deemed politically correct......"

    Always good to get a "you people" reference.

    I never got my jacket, so I decided to join the Murphy Army instead.

    You will pay. The Fenian Raids are about to begin on Murphy's Army.
