â€śFr Dcn Michael Ruskinâ€ť holds services of the Antiochian Orthodox Church on Sunday mornings at Pilgrim Planet.
The lodge is also where Ruskinâ€™s wife refused to give Jane Collison and Paula Knight a shared bed, and told them they best find somewhere else to stay.
Ruskin has since explained gay and lesbian couples are not
welcome at the lodge, as â€śwe donâ€™t make provision for sodomyâ€ť.
The Lodge has now altered its website to read: "Please note that we are not able to accommodate same sex couples in our home".
Itâ€™s also removed a mention of â€śguest-onlyâ€ť facilities.
The Antiochian Orthodox Church teaches that â€śall persons are entitled to a fundamental respect and treatment by others, simply because they are human beings, created in the image of Godâ€ť.
It believes â€śthe best prevention against the AIDS virus is virtueâ€ť and teaches that â€śhomosexual behaviourâ€ť is a sin.
â€śIn full confidentiality the Orthodox Church cares and provides pastorally for homosexuals in the belief that no sinner who has failed himself and God should be allowed to deteriorate morally and spiritually,â€ť it states, in a piece entitled The Stand of the Orthodox Church on Controversial Issues.
An independent North American wing of the religion has even stated it believes same-sex desire â€śis likened to a handicap, a condition that necessarily closes off some choices that might otherwise be available, such as the paralytic who can't walk, or the deaf man who cannot hearâ€ť.
Collison and Knight have laid a complaint with the Human Rights Commission.
Meanwhile an outpouring of outrage continues on the lodgeâ€™s Facebook page.
