The leader of the BNP posted the home address of Mr Morgan and Mr Black on the internet and encouraged a “British Justice” team to go there and give them “a bit of drama”.
Spokesman of The Christian Institute, Mike Judge, said: “This is despicable and nasty behaviour by Nick Griffin.
“Michael Black, John Morgan and Susanne Wilkinson have a genuine disagreement about the B&B case, but they have always been polite and reasonable in their differences.
“That’s how a proper lawful debate should be conducted. Susanne was herself targeted by a hate campaign which included threats to burn her house down. She had police patrols protecting her for several months.
“She knows what it’s like to feel threatened and I’m sure her heart goes out to Michael and John. Which ever side of the debate people are on, there is no need for this kind of behaviour.
“All it’s done is shift the focus away from the important debate about equality and civil liberty – a debate which our country needs and one which ought to be conducted in a respectful and civilised manner.”
