Just a week after Christian guesthouse owners in Cornwall were ordered to pay compensation to two homosexual men turned away over a married-couples-only rule, two more homosexuals are suing the owners of an upscale bed and breakfast on the Thames.
Emboldened by the recent win for the homosexualist lobby, Michael Black, 63, and John Morgan, 58, are claiming sexual discrimination by owner Susanne Wilkinson after they were turned away from the Swiss B&B in Cookham, Berkshire, last March.
[…]The Daily Mail reports that the two men booked their room online but when they arrived Mrs. Wilkinson told them “it is against my convictions for two men to share a bed’, adding ‘this is my private home.” Wilkinson returned their deposit and asked them, politely, to leave.
“She said she was sorry and she was polite in a cold way and she was not abusive, so we asked our money back and she gave it to us,” Black told the Mail.
Black implied that the solution is for people with traditional British Christian moral values to stay out of any business or employment that would bring them into contact with the public.
“If anyone thinks that providing a public service may conflict with their religious beliefs they should question whether that is a suitable business for them.”
The first institutions to disappear under the recently passed Sexual Orientation Regulations of the Equality Act, installed under Tony Blair’s Labour government, were the nation’s Catholic adoption agencies. All of them were forced either to close or sever their ties with the Catholic Church upon being instructed that they must consider homosexual partners as prospective adoptees.
In debates in the House, some British parliamentarians had also warned that the Equalities laws would create legal conflicts between homosexuals and conscientious Christian hoteliers like Peter and Hazelmary Bull, the owners of the Cornwall guesthouse who were ordered by a judge last week to pay £3,600 to Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy, homosexuals in a registered civil partnership.
The Bulls appear to have been set up as a test case by the homosexualist activist group Stonewall. The two men, according to court testimony, attempted to book a room in the Penzance guesthouse by registering as “Mr. and Mrs. Preddy” a month after the Bulls received a threatening letter from Stonewall.
The Bulls, who are appealing last week’s ruling, say they are being driven out of business by a “hate campaign,” and have received abusive phone calls and bogus negative reviews of their hotel have been posted to a travel website. Several homosexual men have called and demanded rooms, threatening legal action if they are refused. Mrs. Bull told the Daily Telegraph, “One told me I was an abomination and would go straight to hell. These people know nothing about my lifestyle, and I’ve been astounded by their cruelty.”
Is there a right not to be offended? If so, then does it trump the right to religious liberty?

2 thoughts on “Christian business owners found guilty for disagreeing with homosexuality”
That shows some nerve, not to mention an incredible lack of tolerance for the views of others to suggest that Christians not engage in business activity that brings them into contact with the public. Outrageous. Far better would be for the homosexuals to only patronize those who are willing to enable their behavior. There are certainly plenty of them out there these days, I’m sorry to say. That’s called “the free market”. If you don’t like the way one business does business, you take your business elsewhere. Normal people do it all time time without raising a stink and expecting judicial support.
America! The communism bursts into your house!
From “The open letter to the US President, the Congress of the USA and to heart of each congressman and to every Human of the USA from a citizen of former USSR.”
The protection of a private property is a basis of any modern state. The protection of the private property means protection of the rights of a people for a private property and free business.
The communistic ideology is based on an annihilation of private property. According to K.Marx and F.Engels, for an annihilation of the private property there is necessary to destroy a family (family relations). That is the annihilation of the marriage, first of all.
For example, the USSR, has begun marriage annihilation. However, he has not finished this annihilation. Why? The annihilation of private property concerned only the wide group of peasants. However, the annihilation of a family and marriage – it concerned to all! In places where Bolsheviks began marriage annihilations, revolts began. Bolsheviks (communists) had the low prestige at the people, but an annihilation of the marriage was as a powder keg under communism. Therefore, Bolsheviks have decided to make not according to K.Marx. They have legalized the marriage, which by the church have been established. It had confirmed itself and have strengthened the country.
That communists could not make – to destroy the marriage institute and the system of private property has itself collapsed, now many advanced countries manage to make it, including the USA.
If the alien body enters into a healthy alive organism the organism may fall ill but when it is a lot of such alien bodies enters into a healthy alive organism, the organism dies.
Marriage has similar features! An organism of natural marriage between the man and the woman receives an injection by a same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage legalization will increase the sizes of this injection till the critical sizes at which any marriage will die. The society in sexual relations will be more and more similar to primitive herd. This is primitive communism by F.Engels. But if someone has forgotten, it is necessary to recollect – in the primitive herd, there is no private property, business and the capital. Well, the institution of private property is constructed on the base of marriage, a natural family.
The countries which accepted legalization of same-sex marriages are already on the way of destruction of private property.
I very much am surprised how businessmen may quietly look at the possibility of destruction of bases of a private property. You at all do not understand, that you are putting already a powder keg under marriage. The same-sex marriage will make that work which communists could not make – to destroy a private property not by terror, but by destruction of its basis – by destruction of the marriage.
Some scientists explain, that any sex act removes stress, and than it is the more the better. It is less a tension in a society.
A truer word was never spoken! The physiology after any sex act has a rest, but sex act without love accumulates not in muscles, but the hatred hides into brains. That hatred which with difficulties by the big work was grown in the people by Bolsheviks. The saved up hatred always is ready spill out through physiology!
At last, it is conclusions from the letter about than are same-sex marriages for a society and the country:
• This is cultivation of development of lust in a society in immeasurable scale.
• This is an inspiration of development of hatred in a society.
• This is destruction of strength of the country.
• This is full destruction of the created civilized institute of marriage that there is an achievement of all humanity.
• This is the catastrophic approach of destruction of a private property and the capital.
There is the last conclusion: “Who votes for legalization of same-sex marriages, he votes for legalization of these five points”.
