Christian couple ban swearing and gambling from North London pub

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Here's an amusing story from the, err, Daily Mail. A devout Christian couple have been sacked as landlord and landlady of the Kings Head in Islington after they banned punters from swearing and gambling on the horse racing inside their establishment. As if that wasn't enough they added Bible questions to the pub quiz and, astonishingly, took down the pub's dart board and replaced it with what one local described as "some kind of calligraphy".

Unsurprisingly thirsty regulars who hadn't already been barred by the couple chose to seek their beer-fix elsewhere, and owners Oakfield Taverns moved quickly to remove Krista and John Fleming, who took over at the pub last September.
