Oh FFS ........... well seem like nice boys !
Oh superly duper.
A pair of "nice guys" have won a court battle because they are gay!
Well no not really.
Well yes really !!
Basically the owners of a hotel who refused to allow a gay couple a double room acted unlawfully, a judge has ruled.
Peter and Hazelmary Bull, of the Chymorvah Hotel, near Penzance, said as Christians they did not believe unmarried couples should share a room.
Martyn Hall and his civil partner Steven Preddy, from Bristol, said the incident in September 2008 was "direct discrimination" against them.
They were awarded £1,800 each in damages at Bristol County Court.
"When we booked to stay at the Chymorvah Hotel this was not, as some have suggested, a set up sponsored by a pressure group, we just wanted a relaxing weekend away - something thousands of other couples in Britain do every weekend," Mr Preddy said.
"Because we wanted to bring our new dog we checked he would be welcome. It didn't even cross our minds that in 2008 in Britain we needed to ask if we would be.
He said that the judgement showed that civil partnerships were legally the same as marriages.
Hazelmary Bull said the double bed policy was based on "sincere beliefs"
"Judge Rutherford has found that our treatment was an act of direct discrimination and therefore a breach of the law," he added.
Now if you read further here into this you will see the now famous "Human Rights Bill" was used.
So the question I ask is .............
Are the human rights of sexual preference stronger in law than the human rights of religious expression????????
I mean we roll over and take it up the ass every day to pacify the ranks of the Islamic faith (excuse the pun) but now we are saying that being gay, and being of any other religious belief is greater than being Christian.
IMHO..............There is no other section of our society that is pandered to, bowed down too and generally given as much freedom and air time as that of the gay and lesbian movement.............Bloody ridiculous !!
