Independant.co.uk said:
Christian hotel owners who refused a gay couple a double room acted unlawfully, a judge ruled today.

Peter and Hazelmary Bull were breaking the law when they denied Martyn Hall and his civil partner Steven Preddy a room at their hotel in Cornwall in September 2008.

Judge Andrew Rutherford made the ruling in a written judgment at Bristol County Court as he awarded the couple £1,800 each in damages.

Part of me thinks this belongs in the News section but there's an underlying point here I want to address.

That point is this. This is a statement made by Mrs Bull on the incident, lawsuit and result as found in the Daily Mail (Normally I'd have thought this was a fabrication, however the Daily Mail itself is clearly on the side of the owners of the B&B, which is what makes me believe this is genuine)

http://i.dailymail.co.uk...

And I quote "The bible is very clear that a man should not lie with another man, nor a woman with another woman."

The backbone of their defence so far has been their belief against sex before marriage, nowhere else has this been mentioned.

So, they're not married? That's not bigoted, right? So it really wa-WAIT!

http://en.wikipedia.org...

And I quote

"The largest voice against LGBT right in the UK currently comes from the Church of England over the issue of gay marriage. Labour passed into law in 2005 the ability for same-sex couples to enter civil-partnerships, but they could not take place in a church or be called a "Marriage". The Church of England has taken up opposition to the current Conservative/Liberal Democrat Government's plans to extend this to full marriage rights. [62]"

So

You can't be married because we say so
You can't have sex because you're not married because wso
and you can't be married because we say so.

And these people are the victims?

Discuss.
What fresh dickery is the internet up to today?

Blah blah blah property rights.
When large numbers of otherwise-law abiding people break specific laws en masse, it's usually a fault that lies with the law. - Unknown
