From Pennsylvania’s York Daily Record’s editorial:
“The pool’s policies regarding same-sex couples with children were recently the focus of a news story. Michelle Gladfelter of Manchester Township applied for a membership at the pool and was denied the family membership discount.
She is in a relationship with another woman, and the two are raising a 5-year-old child together.
Mr. Jacobs said the pool does not recognize same-sex marriages. That’s why the three were denied the discount.
Pennsylvania does not recognize same-sex marriages either, so he would seem to be on solid legal ground.
It’s a private club. He’s not saying gay people can’t join, just that same-sex couples don’t qualify for family discounts.
But here’s where the logic seems to break down: Mr. Jacobs said the pool does offer family discounts to unmarried heterosexual couples and children.
So an unmarried opposite-sex couple gets a discount while an unmarried same-sex couple doesn’t?”
