(EXPRESS) — A CHRISTIAN couple who refused to let two gay men share a bed at their bed and breakfast guest house yesterday lost an appeal against paying them thousands of pounds damages.
Peter and Hazelmary Bull had denied sexual discrimination, saying their ban on the men was “religiously informed” because they believed sex outside marriage was a sin.
They were ordered to pay the men £3,600 damages for sex discrimination after refusing Steven Preddy and Martyn Hall a double room at their guest house in Marazion, Cornwall.

The Bulls had asked the Supreme Court to overturn county court and Appeal Court decisions against them, but failed yesterday.
