Christian hotel owners who refused a gay couple a double room were today ordered to pay them compensation after a judge ruled they acted unlawfully.

Peter and Hazelmary Bull were breaking the law when they denied Martyn Hall and his civil partner Steven Preddy a room at their hotel in Cornwall in September 2008.

Judge Andrew Rutherford made the ruling in a written judgment at Bristol County Court as he awarded the couple £1,800 each in damages.

Mr Hall and Mr Preddy, from Bristol, were seeking up to £5,000 damages claiming sexual orientation discrimination under the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007.

At a hearing last month, the Bulls denied the claim, saying they have a long-standing policy of banning all unmarried couples both heterosexual and gay from sharing a bed at the Chymorvah Private Hotel in Marazion near Penzance.

Clearly there was no discrimination. So the message is that you better let the fudgebacks do what they want when they want or you’ll pay.

And the tyranny of the state continues.. By their very logic, this Christian hotel owner, as well as anyone else would also be prohibited from allowing prostitutes to rent their rooms. /just sayin..

Wouldn’t it be great if FReepers sent the hotel owners money toward their legal expenses?

England needs a revolution even worse than we do. Or a second landing of the Normans. What a bunch of decrepit savages they have become.

Do not allow any of the “side” issues to distract you folks.

There’s nothing at the base of the homosexual agenda except the criminalization of Christianity.
If this aspect were taken off the table, you wouldn’t hear a thing from homos ever again.
