Death Threats for B&B Couple Who Refused Gay Couple Double Room
7:01am 9th October 2013
The Marazion Bed and Breakfast owners who refused to let a gay couple share a room tell Pirate FM they have had death threats.
Peter and Hazelmary Bull go to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, arguing they were trying to uphold their Christian beliefs.
An appeal judge upheld a ruling the couple acted unlawfully at the Chymorvah and ordered them to pay £3,600.
The pair argued they did not want Martyn Hall and civil partner Steven Preddy to stay in a double room, because of their Christian beliefs.
The website for the B&B continues to display a message reading: "Here at Chymorvah we have few rules, but please note that as Christians we have a deep regard for marriage(being the union of one man to one woman for life to the exclusion of all others).
"Therefore, although we extend to all a warm welcome to our home, our double bedded accommodation is not available to unmarried couples. Thank you."
Hazelmary said: "When we came back from the trial and there were death threats - we kind of knew that would happen.
"What has alarmed us has been the damage to the property. Tyres have been slashed, wheel nuts loosened on the car and then, about six weeks ago, I discovered a rabbit that had been nailed to the gate."
The latest court battle comes weeks after Pirate FM reported that the couple are now planning to sell the business.
Hazelmary said: "It wasn't direct discrimination because we weren't targeting homosexuals and we never have done. We're comfortable around homosexuals. If those two men had come in for two single rooms or they'd come in for a cream tea, I would have spent time with them.
"Beliefs shouldn't be fashionable and beliefs shouldn't court fashion.
"I don't think a belief is worth anything unless you're prepared to go through fire because we could pick them up and drop them like sweets in a sweet shop."7:01am 9th October 2013
