A bed and breakfast owner from Berkshire has lost her appeal against a ruling she unlawfully discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to let them stay in a double room.
Susanne Wilkinson wouldn't allow Michael Black and his partner John Morgan to have a room at the Swiss B&B in Cookham.
Reading County Court heard how the couple from Cambridgeshire paid a deposit but protested against the owner's treatment.
Mrs Wilkinson said it was against her religious convictions to allow two men to share a bed.
It was concluded that she directly discriminated against homosexual couples on the ground of their sexual orientation.
Because I am Christian, I believe that monogamous heterosexual marriage is a form of partnership uniquely intended for sexual relations between persons and that homosexual relations outside marriage are wrong."
