|Mr and Mr Smith would like the honeymoon suite, George.|
I see the couple who run the Bed and Breakfast establishment in their home, who were set up by a couple of activist Homosexuals, have been fined £1,800. I blogged on this in March last year and we had a good debate then, but without going over old ground and for the benefit of new readers, does this seem fair?
Briefly, the case was brought by a couple of Homosexuals who targeted a Christian Couple's Bed and Breakfast, which they ran in their own home as a small business. This was done deliberately to test the Christian couple's beliefs of Homosexuality. The case was brought by the EHRC, (the Equalities and Human Rights Commission), who paid for the Homosexuals legal costs. The Judge gave them leave to appeal the case to a higher court, which illustrated to me, that perhaps he wasn't in full agreement of the law or wasn't sure of his legal ground.
So who's case was the strongest? The Homosexual activists or the Christian couple. Are all people equal but some people are more equal than others? What would I have done? Well as most of you know, I don't have any religious convictions, but I am certainly Homophobic to a certain degree, like most Heterosexual men, if they were being truthful. I would have allowed them in, on the condition, that if they made a mess of the sheets, they were going to pay extra, as I would with a Heterosexual couple, if I was being honest.
Actually, I'm a lying bastard, I would have told them we were full up or made some other excuse.
