The owners of a Christian guesthouse who were ordered to pay damages for turning away a gay couple have lost their UK Supreme Court fight.
Hazelmary and Peter Bull refused to let civil partners Steven Preddy and Martyn Hall stay in a double room at Chymorvah House in Marazion in Cornwall in 2008.
The couple, who had already lost cases at Bristol County Court and the Court of Appeal, said they were "saddened".
Mr and Mrs Bull have said they regard any sex outside marriage as a "sin". Steven Preddy (l) and Martyn Hall Steven Preddy (l) and Martyn Hall were turned away by the Bulls in 2008

Five Supreme Court justices ruled against them on Wednesday after analysing the case at a hearing in London in October.

Oh yeah! If that sight didn’t kill them from shock...........
Tyrannical Governments continue to grow. And they will only get worse. Jewish and Christian persecutions are next.
