English Judge admits Laws aren't doing enough to protect Christian Beliefs

  • Baroness Hale calls for a rethink on religious and gay rights
  • Six months ago she condemned B&B owners for turning away gay guests
  • Peter and Hazelmary Bull refused Steven Preddy and Martyn Hall a room
  • Last week Lady Hale and fellow judges said Bulls were not liable for costs
  • She tell lawyers judgement against the Bulls may have been too harsh

A judge who condemned a Christian couple for turning away gay guests from their hotel yesterday said her decision may have been wrong.

Supreme Court deputy president Baroness Hale called for a rethink on religious and gay rights six months after she rejected the B&B owners' arguments in a key test case.

Lady Hale said in a speech that the law has done too little to protect the beliefs of Christians. And she cast doubts over her own judgment in the landmark case in which a gay couple sued Christian hoteliers Peter and Hazelmary Bull.
