The Vogelenzangs are practicing Christians, and got themselves into legal trouble after engaging in a theological discussion with a Muslim guest at their hotel. The guest made a complaint to the authorities, and the Vogelenzangs were brought up on a “hate crime” charge.
The case was eventually thrown out by a judge, but not before the couple’s business had been effectively ruined. The last news I read about them said they were unable to pay their mortgage, and would have to sell their hotel.
However, Mr. and Mrs. Vogelenzang have turned their misfortune to good use by converting their hotel into Bounty House, a different sort of business. Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for YouTubing this video:
