Michigan Woman Faces Civil Rights Complaint for Seeking a Christian Roommate ...
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/10/22/civil-rights-complaint-filed-christian-roommate-advertisement/ (can someone make this clickable ... it doesn't seem to want to work for me)
She posted at her church for a Christian roommate and someone got offended that she specified a Christian roommate and turned her in to the Fair Housing Authority and they are pursuing the case!!
It's HER home and she has the right to decide who lives WITH her. She can be discriminating about who the hell she shares her home with!!

Here you go.
Since it was Fox News reporting it, I had to check to make sure that there weren't conflicting stories. It seems that they have reported this one fairly accurately. Even I have to admit that this seems a bit frivolous. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
