Landlords don't have to rent to unmarried couples
An Akron couple called it discrimination when they were denied an apartment because they weren't married.

The landlord cited scripture for the decision. And now, there's been a surprising ruling on religion's role in renting.

The landlord, who religiously studies the scriptures, accused a young couple of living in sin.

"Generally, I don't rent to unmarried couples because I believe it makes a statement to society," Akron landlord David Grey said. ...

I think that we are all guilty of taking convenient scriptures, and out of context scriptures too.

David chose not to rent his property to Todd and Danielle I choose to believe, out of his convictions. I do not agree with his choice, yes fornication and adultery are wrong, but be careful church, like one reader already said, the world is condemned for rejecting Christ, and if I look at the divorce, and remarriage stats in the "church" I think we have a log, no a forest in our eye...we really are hypocrites for expecting Todd and Danielle to live by the Law,which we preach that none can fulfill, and not even lifting a finger to help them...and if I read the article right, they were engaged...doesn't make the fornication any more correct, but I think that David did more harm to the body with this action that good.

I have no use for "political" correctness, in fact I abhor it, but showing mercy to a woman caught in adultery, and showing the "church" their hearts, and sin...well it worked for Jesus...

Invoking Scripture as a basis for promoting Godly living hopefully honors our Lord. Yet, Jesus showed love to those caught in sinful lifestyles in order to minister to them.
Christians are compelled to call other believers to live as Godly examples, but to unbelievers Scripture is "foolishness" (1 Cor 2:14). To the unsaved world, the Body of Christ needs to uphold Godly standards in our own living that any 'good works' will glorify the Father and draw others to Him.
It is a hard lesson, but the Church should judge only the Church; the world is condemned already (except they repent and accept salvation). If the Church were living by God's standards, we'd have no political disputing over 'moral' matters.

Praise God for Mr. Grey's willingness to take a stand! I fear too many Christians wouldn't.

Here's a Bible passage for Todd Roberts: "Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge" (from Hebrews 13:4). Judging by that (and many other) Bible passages, it looks like Todd Roberts better worry about how GOD will discriminate against him if he doesn't repent, period. And hats off to David Grey for having the courage to take a stand.

Very interesting and heartening. Regarding the "do not judge" passage, I believe the renter & his girlfriend need to understand Matthew 7:1-5 with regards to Matthew 7:6; somehow one can figure out who is a "dog" or "pig" without violating Matthew 7:1.

Shudder....the Bible instructs us to DISCRIMINATE against dogs & pigs by not throwing our treasures to them.....how very politically mistaken. :^)

Mr. Roberts and his girlfriend seem to choose bits and pieces of Bible - and out of context to boot - when it suits them.
God enjoins us to be fruit judges. Unmarried and presumable children out of wedlock - last time I checked God's Word still called it sin. Mr. Grey, thank you for your courage of your convictions.
