Can’t let a gay couple stay at his bed and breakfast. His would-be mistress on the other hand…

Last year a British couple who own a bed and breakfast refused to rent a room to a gay couple.  The gay couple sued and Mike Wilkinson and his wife, the owners of the B&B, lost the case despite what they surely thought was a compelling reason for denying the gay couple: “For us, sex when you’re unmarried is a sin before God.”  After they paid the court-ordered £3,600 the Wilkinsons spent months lamenting their oppression at the hands of “homofascists”.  Yeah, “homofascists”.  Just like how people pissed off when business owners try to discriminate against black people are negrofascists.  Or, as I like to call them, “not assholes.”

Anyway, it’s one year later.  How’re things with Mike Wilkinson and his…wife?

Obsessed Mike Wilkinson, 58, made passes at Sacha Williams-Rowe when she sought comfort at his church after being stabbed by her ex-boyfriend. The father-of-four yesterday admitted his infatuation with the vulnerable single mum, saying: “I developed feelings I shouldn’t have. I got too close.”

Wilkinson showered Sacha, 32, with gifts, including a pink Bible, a watch and silver chain and cross. He also paid off nearly £2,000 in rent arrears but begged Sacha to hide it from his wife. He sent her hundreds of texts, saying he wanted to give her the “biggest, longest, warmest most exciting hug ever and kisses everywhere you allow”. And he told her: “I love you sooo much. I couldn’t sleep properly. Kept thinking of you and squeezing my pillow.”

The Sunday Mirror is publishing the details of Wilkinson’s behaviour in a bid to expose his hypocrisy. The church leader and his religious wife, Susanne, sparked ­national outrage in 2010 when they told Michael Black, 64, and his partner John Morgan, 59, they could not stay in the same bed at the £75-a-night Swiss Bed and Breakfast in Cookham, Berkshire.

Oh, that’s awkward.  But at least Mike is consistent: he was trying to have sex while married.  Also, that’s pretty ballsy giving someone an ornate cross in an effort to spark an affair.  “This will serve as a reminder that Jesus is the source of all morality.  I hope it means a lot to you.”

    I assume he’s now railing against the “adulterofascists”?

    People who behave badly behave badly. Aside from being a tautology, when we see the B&B owners who get aggressively anti-gay or when we see the Chic-fil-A ceo make mean comments; I keep wanting those folks investigated because they always seem to have some other BS going on.

      It’s almost as if having undue regard for your own absolute self-righteousness unmoored in reality interferes with your ability to tell right from wrong in every area of life.

        Exactly and better said than my wording.

    I couldn’t stop laughing.

    But this just proves his point; obviously merely having a gay couple stay at his establishment caused his God-fearing morality to crumble! *eyeroll*

    I’m sorry, what?

    I have been told by some religious friends that the best time to score is sunrise mass. It always amazes me how sexy and seductive church is to the religious.
