Christian B&B Owners Sued for Discrimination

Christian B&B Owners Sued for Discrimination


The Christian owners of a bed and breakfast in Cornwall are being sued for refusing to allow a gay couple to share a bed.

According to The Sun, the landmark suit could hold implications for religious liberty and, on a more specific level, determine what restrictions B&B and other hotel owners are allowed to impose on guests in the U.K.

"Devout Peter and Hazelmary Bull told civil partners Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy it would be 'an affront to their faith' if the men slept together," the Sun reported. The owners only allow married heterosexual couples to share beds.

Hall and Preddy were offered separate singles rooms, but they left and reported the incident to the police.

The men claim the unfair treatment stemmed from their sexual orientation, and they are seeking up to PS5,000 using the 2007 Equality Act Regulations.
