Coffee Chain: We're Kind of Sorry for Booting Lesbians

Coffee Chain: We're Kind of Sorry for Booting Lesbians

A Canadian coffee chain gave an unconvincing apology to a female couple recently kicked out of an Ontario java shop after a Pentecostal minister said the women were practicing "sexual behavior."

The couple say it was a simple display of affection that sent the minister over the edge -- the preacher complained to the manager, got the women tossed, and then held an impromptu prayer service for the women in the Tim Hortons's parking lot.

The chain later apologized -- sort of.

"The guests' behavior went beyond public displays of affection and was making other guests feel uncomfortable," according to statement from Tim Hortons. "The management has apologized to [the couple] and invited them back to their restaurant. We apologize if [they] were offended by the misunderstanding that occurred at our Blenheim restaurant last month on behalf of the owners and management. It was not the manager's intention to offend or target anyone based on their sexual orientation."
