A gay couple from Taunton say they were abused by a preacher whilst walking hand-in-hand down the high street.
The man told Craig Manning and his partner, who does not wish to be named, that they would ‘burn in hell’.
Manning told ThisIsWestCountry.co.uk: Mr Manning said: “If people want to preach the word of the Bible they can do so, but I don’t think they should be shouting homophobic abuse up the high street at people.
“Everyone in the street turned and looked when he started shouting.
“It’s not right that he should condemn us, and make us feel threatened and intimidated in the middle of town.”
