  1. Why are they not also suing the estate agent who seemed to feel the need to tell the church that they were gay?

    1. sue them for what? estate agents were acting on befhalf of diocese so their loyalty ws with their client. its not like buyers’ sexuality was a classified information

  2. It’s not discrimination, it’s just that we don’t want you to have homosexuals on your property.
    How many people do they think is going to fall for that?

  3. discrimination against a minority group even if you allege you were not aware of it is still discrimination.

  4. its america and religious groups there enjoy lots of exemptions, but good luck to the couple

  5. Where it really smacks of double standards is this (from the previous article) “The Telegram pointed out that Oakhurst was once a home for rehabilitating paedophile priests, the House of Affirmation.”
    So the sellers contend that the neighbours were fine having a rehab centre for catholic kiddie fiddlers on their doorstep, but the moment there was a chance of gay weddings being held there, it’s a case of “there goes the neighbourhood”.
    That’s a bit rich…

  6. This catholics make me crazy !!! They stand for the most reactionary things in the world and yet demand ”Rights” witch are just disguised privileges

  7. Good luck to the plaintiffs. I hope they take them for all they can!

  8. Oh look, homophobes yet again denying that they’re being homophobic. Same old. I’d have (slightly) more respect for them if they were honest.

    Also, $1m for a 44-room mansion?! If only you could get the same kind of thing for that money here in the UK.

    Oh the blatant hypocrisy, a former home for rehabilitating paedophile priests and denying a sale to a gay couple because of same-sex marriages taking place! I’m surprised that hasn’t come up in the legal battle.
