It’s sad that you think being old is an excuse for denial of freedom and equality to any American. They are free to disagree with gays on religious grounds all they want: in America they are not free to discriminate at will while offering public accommodations.
This “victory” makes us look like people who understand the Constitution: you should read it sometime. The issue is not “delicate” at all, it’s cut and dried. A bed and breakfast is not “a place where others stay”: these grandparents are pocketing money for people to stay there. It’s a business — as such it is a public space subject to the Constitution’s guarantees of freedom and equality for all. Your business does not get an exception to the Constitution because you’re old.
What you’re suggesting is that if their religious beliefs claimed whites superior to blacks (and, yes, the Bible was once misused to justify that) then it would be okay for them in 2013 to hang a “WHITES ONLY” sign on their door — and if anyone found this intolerable they were being bullies. I suggest that you’re full of it, and you should be ashamed of your victim-blaming. It’s a bit much to suggest the loss of their livelihood is not their own fault.
What’s wrong is you downplaying open discrimination as a “disagreement”. A disagreement is when you and your friend cannot agree what movie to watch. Slavery was not a “disagreement.” Jim Crow was not a “disagreement”. The denial of the vote to women was not a “disagreement”, separate fountains based on race was not a “disagreement”, and barring gays from a public business is not a “disagreement”. You really do need to distinguish between a disagreement and blatant discrimination in violation of American ideals and values. In America, people have a right to expect equality. It’s really sad that you don’t take equality seriously.
