It is getting to the place where one could set up a full time blog, chronicling the daily instances of UK fascism. It could be called, “The Nation Formerly Known as Great Britain” or some such thing. It seems that the PC thought police are working overtime there to suppress any dissent and wipe out all traces of biblical Christianity.
The latest case of anti-Christian bigotry concerns an elderly couple who run a small hotel. They prefer only married couples to use double accommodation. Of course the homosexual activists have challenged this, and the pair is now being sued. Here is how the Daily Mail describes the situation:
“The Christian owners of a seaside hotel may be prosecuted after refusing to allow a gay couple to stay in a double room. Peter and Hazelmary Bull are facing an unprecedented court case under controversial new equality laws. Martyn Hall, who lives with his civil partner Steven Preddy, has lodged a county court claim for up to £5,000 in damages alleging ‘direct discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation’.”
“But the Bulls deny the charge, saying they have a long-standing policy of banning all unmarried couples, both heterosexual and gay, from sharing a bed at the Chymorvah Private Hotel in Marazion near Penzance in Cornwall. Mrs Bull, a 62-year-old great-grandmother, said that even her brother and his female partner had to stay in separate rooms when they visited the hotel. The Bulls, who have the backing of the Christian Institute, have operated their ‘married only’ policy since they bought the hotel in 1986.”
On their hotel website it says: “We have few rules but please note that out of a deep regard for marriage we prefer to let double accommodation to heterosexual married couples only.” But the homosexual storm troopers wanted to attack their Christian convictions. The story continues,
“Last August, the Bulls received a letter from Stonewall, the gay rights organisation, saying it had received a complaint and warning the hotel it was breaking the law. The following month Mr Preddy, from Bristol, rang to book a double room for two nights. Mrs Bull, who took the call, said last night that she had wrongly assumed that he would be staying with his wife before she accepted the booking.”
“When Mr Preddy and Mr Hall arrived, they were told by the manager, Bernie Quinn, that the hotel could not honour the booking. The couple told him he was acting illegally before leaving and reporting the incident to police. Mrs Bull insisted last night: ‘I have had people clearly involved in affairs and under-age people who have tried to book in here for sex, and I have refused them the same as I refused these gentlemen because I won’t be a party to anything which is an affront to my faith under my roof’.”
A solicitor for the hotel owners said that under “the European Convention on Human Rights, people are able to hold a religious belief and manifest it in the way they act”. But the way the EU is travelling these days, I would not expect to get too much support from them.
This is the same EU that recently sided with the German government against a Christian couple there who were jailed and their children forcibly removed. Their crime? They dared to homeschool their children, which is now illegal in Germany.
So it remains to be seen how this situation will play out. Just add it to the list of recent cases involving anti-Christian bigotry. Of course, all these cases are perpetrated in the name of tolerance and openness, but what we are really seeing is the rise of the modern police state.
Jolly old England is well on the way to becoming fascist new England. Each passing week now anti-faith and anti-family outrages are occurring there. It really is making life for Christians increasingly unbearable. There may soon be mass exoduses out of the UK – another round of convicts. This time they will be religious prisoners seeking freedom overseas.
As freedom of religion is slowly but surely being destroyed in England, either the jails will be filled with prisoners of conscience, or people will have to flee this once great nation. It is not looking very good. Who will stand up and be counted?
