 babble: Lesbian couple, Knights of Columbus both win a little in hall rental dispute
[George Macintosh, the lawyer for the Knights of Columbus] said the key part of the ruling was the fact that the tribunal found that the Knights were entitled to refuse access to the hall to the complainants for the celebration of the same-sex wedding.
The Panel accepts that the Knights are entitled to this constitutional protection and therefore cannot be compelled to act in a manner that is contrary to their core religious beliefs.
The Panel also finds that, although the Knights were not being asked to participate in the solemnization of the marriage, renting the Hall for the celebration of the marriage would have required them to indirectly condone the celebration of a same sex-marriage, an act that is contrary to their core religious beliefs.
