Homophobic B&B Owners Who Discriminated Against Gays Have To Sell Their Business
Discrimination doesn't pay, y'all!
Hazelmary and Peter Bull refused to honor a legally recognized gay couple's shared room booking in 2008 at their bread and breakfast, offering them separate rooms instead. The couple sued and won in the courts in 2011. Since then, the couple's B&B has been removed from databases for its discriminatory practices, resulting in a tangible loss of business for the couple.
“Last winter was terrible," Hazelmary told the Daily Mail. "We were actually shivering and were hungry. We are coming towards next winter and dreading it.”
“In 2013, two people who worked all their lives at this have ended up cold and hungry," she added. "It’s not right. This is like a death in the family. I never thought it would end like this. We are not facing the future with any real enthusiasm.”
The couple has listed their B&B for £750,000.
We give it 3, 2, 1... until the homophobic Christian minority will try to twist this as "discrimination" against bigots.
