Update: Christian hotel couple may lose their home.

In despair: Hazelmary Bull faces financial ruin after being sued for not allowing a gay couple to share a double room.

Christian hotel owner Hazelmary Bull has certainly had her faith tested to the limit this week.

Yesterday, she was planning to make a four-hour round trip to visit her desperately ill husband Peter, 71, in hospital, where he is recovering from a triple heart bypass and valve replacement surgery.

How, she fretted, was she going to tell him that they were teetering on the brink of financial ruin? That there was little hope now of hanging on to the Cornish guesthouse they’d owned for 25 years; the home they’d poured not only their life savings into, but also their heart and souls. In the end, 66-year-old Hazelmary just couldn’t bring herself to do it.

On Tuesday, Peter was undergoing a nine-hour operation at the exact moment his wife of 47 years was sitting in Bristol County Court waiting to hear their fate.

In a landmark ruling, which will have far-reaching implications for many Christians in Britain, Judge Rutherford ordered the Bulls to pay civil partners Martyn Hall, 46, and Steven Preddy, 38, £1,800 each in compensation for refusing to allow the couple to stay in a double room at their hotel.

My Comment:

My heart goes out to Hazelmary Bull and her husband for what they are going through. This is indeed a form of persecution, where Christians are put to the test for their faith in Christ.

We must stand tall and strong in Jesus, so when we are persecuted as such our faith in Christ sees us through. To hand your troubles and placing them in the hands of Christ is a marvelous thing, for we know Our Redeemers will always be there.

2 Corinthians 12:10

For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

We as believers in Jesus Christ know that Christian persecution will get much worse. Already, in countries like Nigeria, India, Sudan, and countless others, Christians are murdered for their faith. But they are prepared, knowing that in heaven their reward is great.

2 Corinthians 4:8-11

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies. For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

  1. There was also another incident of an owner of a bridal shop who was sued because she wouldn’t help plan a gay wedding. The time is coming that, for Christians, we will either have to compromise our principles or not have our businesses. Even for those who don’t own their own businesses, we are often told to lie to customers or cheat them financially. Now is the time to put our full faith in Jesus. Our time here is short. Maranatha

  2. Without meaning to boast, I have sent them some monies, I pray the Lord will lay it on the hearts of many believers to do the same, I’m sure He is, also booking a room in their hotel should you visit Cornwall. May the Lord prosper these servants whom stood for Him.
