Sexual discrimination and religious orientation

Another case concerning the potential conflict between the right not to be discriminated against on grounds of sexual orientation and the right to religious freedom.

Black & Morgan v. Wilkinson (unreported, 18 October 2012, Slough County Court)

The Christian owner of a B&B in Berkshire was found to have discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to allow them stay in a double-bedded room because of her belief that all sexual activity outside of marriage is wrong.
