Christian Bed & Breakfast Owners Report Torrent of Hateful Messages

Country: United Kingdom

Date of incident: September 19, 2012

The Christian owners of a bed and breakfast in Britain, Mike and Susanne Wilkinson, have received countless hate-filled messages in the wake of refusing to give a homosexual couple a double room.

 Mike and Susanne Wilkinson say “hundreds of emails an hour” came in from around the world, as well as phone calls and texts – some which were “very sexually explicit”. They also told of messages threatening “to burn your house down” and then lots of filthy words about what they thought of the couple. Mike added: “It was very scary. And we have guests as well as children living here. People started cancelling the bookings. And that’s when we called the police.” However the police, despite searching through thousands of messages, were unable to track down any of the senders. There is no suggestion that any of the messages came from the homosexual couple who were refused a room. They were in court last week after the homosexual couple, Michael Black and John Morgan, sued them over their actions. At the trial Mr Wilkinson confirmed: “Christianity isn’t just something we do in church on a Sunday – it affects every area of our life, including our home and our business. Surely there is room for that in modern British life.” James Dingemans QC, representing Mrs Wilkinson, said it was against his client’s beliefs for unmarried people to share a bed under her roof, adding: “This is protected by the Equality Act 2010 and the Human Rights Act 1998.” The judge’s decision is expected in the coming days.
