"we don't accept gays and dogs"

Catholic guest house owners reject gay couple because ‘we don’t accept gays and dogs’

The owners of a guest house have come under fire for refusing to host a gay couple.
The B&B bosses, who are devout Catholic, told the two men that “we don’t accept gays and animals”.
Now politicians and locals have criticised the owners for being discriminatory.

Filippo Mondella, owner of the guest house, told Radio Capital: “This is important and I don’t want to appear like a troglodyte, but we don’t accept gays and dogs” and
he did not mean to offend by inferring that gay people are like animals.

Local authorities labelled the incident “a serious case of discrimination and homophobia”.
Giulia Russo, the mayor of Ricadi, said: “We completely distance ourselves from this.
“In Ricadi we are civil and evolved people and such discrimination is not acceptable in 2017.”

Italy is one of the least LGBT-friendly places in the EU.
The country still outlaws same-sex marriage, same-sex adoption, access to IVF for lesbians and has no discrimination protections for gay people accessing goods and services.
