When Australians voted in 2017 for a plebiscite to make so-called same-sex marriage legal it was not supposed to be used as a weapon against those who believe marriage is only between one man and one woman! Well, that isn’t the way it is and to tell you the truth I am sick and tired how those Christians who took a stand against this sin are being treated. For instance; ‘Tennis icon Margaret Court has once again divided opinion after calling on Tennis Australia (TA) to show her the same respect as Rod Laver when celebrating the 50th anniversary of her Grand Slam next year.
Court won all four majors in 1970 and finished her career with 24 grand slam singles titles — the most in history — but has sparked controversy in recent years with her outspoken opposition to same-sex marriage.
Gay marriage in Australia was legalised after the plebiscite in 2017 but Court disagrees with it on religious grounds because the Bible says marriage should be between a man and a woman.
The 77-year-old has been hounded for her views with plenty demanding the court honouring her at Melbourne Park have its name changed.’
Supposedly funny, ‘Australian comedian and host of Triple M Sydney’s breakfast program Lawrence Mooney said Court’s attitude towards gay people has no place in society.
“You can’t use ‘her views are popular’ and ‘she has a right to use them’ to be homophobic, you just can’t be,” Mooney told Channel 9’s Today program.
“And if you’re homophobic there’s no space for you in public life.
“Discriminating about sexuality is a crime, so it is legislated against.
“Margaret Court’s opinions on same sex marriage and sexuality are abhorrent and she should be hounded out of the sport until she falls into line.
“It’s absolutely abhorrent.
“Margie, catch up to 2019.
“Margaret Court needs to stop discriminating against people.”’ https://www.news.com.au/sport/sports-life/australia-reacts-to-tennis-legend-margaret-courts-callout-of-tennis-australia/news-story/80029e76a08b4e94425bd1b53d714f7d
If a person who do not believe in sodomite marriage used the language that is used against them in this abhorrent issue they would be in jail for a hate crime. The left seem to think hate is fine when directed at those who disagree with them and especially Christians! The Prime Minister is supposed to be a born-again Christian but he is a milk toast Christian when it comes to taking a stand on this issue and many other issues as well.
I believe, Mooney and those like him have the freedom to say what they believe concerning sodomites ‘marrying’ but those who disagree should have the same freedom to say what they believe and that is marriage is not for sodomites!
