Illinois Reception Hall Won't Help Lesbian Couple "Celebrate That Sin"
If Taylor Schumaker had known the University Club in downtown Moline, Illinois blatantly discriminated against same-sex couples, she wouldn't have bothered inquiring about holding her wedding reception there.

When Bar Manager Kristen Stewart offered to give Schumaker and her fiance ("he") a tour of the facility and learned that "he" was in fact "she," she abruptly rescinded the offer because "we don't rent to homosexual couples." When WQAD caught up with Stewart --whose husband is President of the University Club -- she defended her decision with her religious beliefs:

STEWART: I am a biblical Christian and I do not believe in homosexual marriage, that's correct. And because marriage is a covenant that God created for man and woman, as a biblical Christian, I cannot help them into or celebrate that sin. My husband's family does not hold the same view. If there is a homosexual couple I will pass them onto them. I have told him if they want to do homosexual receptions I would not have any part of that. He and his family have decided they will.
