grand slam champion bigot

Former grand slam tennis great Margaret Court continues to publically pursue a bigots agenda against gay people.

She says she "loves them" while impling that they're revolting sinners in the same sentence

Sad, why not just live and let live.

Lots of gay people in tennis.

please reply if you feel hating on minorities is wrong


""""Pastor Court hits gay plan

By Nadia Miraudo
The Sunday Times
January 11, 2004

TENNIS legend and Christian pastor the Reverend Margaret Court has condemned federal Labor's plans to give same-sex couples equal rights and financial status as heterosexual couples.

Attacking the policy, which bans anti-homosexual discrimination in areas including taxation, family law, industrial relations and government benefits, Dr Court said the changes would erode Australia's Christian heritage.

But Dr Court's comments have come under fire for being fundamentalist and discriminatory.

Pride WA co-president Daniel Smith said the ALP's policy would ensure gay and lesbian people would enjoy the same human rights as heterosexual couples.

Dr Court denied her stance was discriminatory, and believed she could help homosexuals change their lifestyle through a Straight Choices course run at her Victory Life Centre in Perth.

But she said the ALP policy threatened the family unit and would play a part in the breakdown of society.

"Our Constitution has been built on Christian principles but we are diluting our values for a minority and our young ones are coming through schools without any Christian values and no idea of what is right and wrong," she said.

"It really saddens me when men in leadership devalue a nation to attract a few votes."

But former federal shadow attorney-general and architect of the policy Robert McClelland said the reforms were designed to support and strengthen genuine relationships.

"They are about putting an end to unfair discrimination in a range of federal laws, consistent with recent reforms to state laws," Mr McClelland said.

Dr Court said if the law was to change, it would demoralise society and confuse children.

She said she did not hate homosexual people. "No, I love them," she said. "I'm there to help them, but just because they do what they do doesn't make it right. It is a sin of the flesh no different to adultery." """"""

As a "christian pastor" I'm pretty sure Margaret Court feels the same way about jews, hindus, muslims, agnostics, blacks, asians and anyone else who isnt white, rich and part of her Church.

Well, Margaret, you can rest assured that if this gay "sinner" were making the laws in Australia, I wouldn't give Christians unfair tax disadvantages, inferior legal rights or deny them the possibility to have their partnerships recognised because MY values are for equality before the law. Given that you are in favour of legalised discrimination, maybe it's a damn (excuse the blasphemy) good thing that kids are growing up without your so-called "Christian" values.

People who call themselves Christians and do nothing then judging others and claim how bad those people are obvious have no clue about the things that Jesus actually did and said

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I am a Christian. I have no opposition to Gay marriage. "once you stop passing judgement, only then will you not be judged." "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's."

Thus, do not make it your duty to punish homosexuals, leave that to god (if such a punishment be his will.) Though the bible does condemn indecent acts among 2 men or 2 women, it also condemns indecent acts among 1 man and 1 woman, leading me to believe that the message is not that "homosexuality is bad," but that sex w/ more than 1 person is bad. So the battle should really be over pre-marital sex, but you don't see that happening...

However, y'all are being pretty hypocritical. Don't pass judgement on her for passing judgment on gays. Just turn the other cheek. She has just as much of a right to her opinion as you do, and bashing her behind her back is amazingly low and achieves nothing.

So now everyone should accept incest?, poligomy?, Beastiality? just because it involves "love".
