The Christian Institute News: Calls to remove Bible from courtrooms

Christian hotel owners Peter and Hazelmary Bull have been at the Supreme Court this week in an attempt to overturn a ruling which said they had 'discriminated' against two men in a civil partnership, by refusing them a double room.
