U.K. Senior Judge: Bed & Breakfast Owner Discriminated Against Homosexuals By Denying Room

Bed and Breakfast

LONDON – A senior judge in the U.K. has ruled that the owner of a bed and breakfast ‘directly discriminate[d]‘ against two homosexual men by not allowing them to spend the night together in a bedroom.

For six years, Susanne Wilkinson has been the owner of the three-room Swiss Bed and Breakfast in Cookham, England. In March 2010, Michael Black and John Morgan attempted to stay at the bed and breakfast, but when Wilkinson learned that the two homosexual men wanted to share a room for the night, she turned them down. Black and Morgan sued Wilkinson, and last year a county court ruled in favor of the men, awarding them £3,600–approximately $5,400. However, Wilkinson appealed the ruling, and her case was eventually brought before Lord Dyson—the second highest judge in England.

The 24-page court ruling, released on Tuesday, begins with an explanation of how Wilkinson’s faith plays a central role in her life and business. Click here to continue reading.
