The Christian Post website reports today (July 20, 2011) that a resort in Lyndonville, Vermont is being sued by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for refusing to serve a lesbian couple.
The Wildflower Inn promotes itself as the perfect vacation getaway -- where even family dogs are welcomed -- but Katherine Baker and Ming-Lien Linsley are suing the inn with the help of the ACLU for rejecting their same-sex marriage ceremony.
The two women attempted to book their wedding reception at the inn but were turned down via email. The email stated that Mary and Jim O'Reilly -- the innkeepers -- "do not host gay receptions" because of their "personal feelings."
Baker said, "When the Wildflower Inn told us last fall they don't host gay receptions, we were obviously saddened and shocked. It was frustrating to be treated like lesser than the rest of society."
