When ‘Human Rights’ Go Too Far

The basic concept of Human Rights is a noble one, or at least it was intended to be when first thought up. Sadly, times have changed.

It Seems Some Have More Rights Than Others!

Today, the laws are twisted and misused by many intent on getting their own way or evading justice, no matter what.

I find it distinctly disconcerting that the law not only allows this, but is complicit in many cases where the just rights of one individual are trampled by the courts because some malcontent feels he has been aggrieved.

I refer in the main to a case that came before a British court, brought by two homosexuals who were refused permission to stay in the hotel belonging to a devout christian couple in 2008.

The Chymorvah Hotel

Peter and Hazelmary Bull own the Chymorvah Private Hotel in Marazion near Penzance, and both hold strong christian believes. It has always been their policy not to allow unmarried couples, both heterosexual and homosexual, to share a bed in their hotel for they believe strongly in the sanctity of marriage.

This is indeed an unusual and refreshing attitude in this age of promiscuity, where it would seem anything, and indeed everything, goes.

The case against the Bull’s was brought by the homosexual ‘couple’ Martyn Hall and Steven Preddy who were turned away after they had booked a double room at the hotel because they were not married. They brought the case claiming sexual orientation discrimination under the Equality Act Regulations of 2007.

The Plaintiffs

The judge who heard the case, Judge Andrew Rutherford, agreed that the Bull’s had a right to their religious beliefs, but said social attitudes had changed in the last fifty years. While the Bull’s view may well have been the norm in those times, it was not in current society. For this reason he found in favour of Hall and Preddy.

The Hall’s were ordered to pay £1,800 to each of the plaintiffs, which thankfully has been covered by donations from The Christian Institute. Its interesting to note that Hall and Preddy’s case was funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission. So no big bills for them!

The Defendants – Standing Up For Christian Values

After the ruling Mrs Bull is quoted as saying: “I do feel that Christianity is being marginalised in Britain. The same laws used against us have been used to shut down faith-based adoption agencies. Much is said about ‘equality and diversity’ but it seems some people are more equal than others.” Oh I do so agree Madam!

While I may be classed as ‘old school’, I agree with the right of the Hall’s to ban undesirables from their hotel whenever they please, and I have a certain affinity with their reasons. We have become far too promiscuous these days, evidenced by the number of single parent teenage mothers on our streets daily, many the result of ‘a one night stand’.

That is not to say my beliefs are as strong as the Bull’s, for I do feel a little practice is necessary in a long-term attachment before marriage, even if its just to find out if you are completely compatible!

And Not A Cop To Be Seen!

Today sees ‘Gay Pride’ parades in many cities around the world, with these misfits cavorting around around naked, semi-naked or in outrageous costumes that would have participants in a heterosexual parade arrested on the spot for contravening the decency laws.

Is this what we want our children to see?

The Equality and Human Rights Laws have given these misfits a voice, allowing them to ride roughshod over the rights of decent, law-abiding citizens at will.

Who knows how long it will be before a pedophile for example, uses these same laws to gain the right, as a down trodden minority, to molest children! Yes, I know, that’s crazy, but if a convicted felon can use these laws to escape a jail sentence or a terrorist deportation, who is to say it won’t happen.

We as a race have gone too far down the road of iniquity, so far in fact that decent behaviour and morals have faded to insignificance for many. This I find sad!

Roy.

Postscript:

It’s nice to hear the Bull’s are to appeal the ruling by Judge Rutherford in the High Court. Hopefully, this time they will get proper justice.
