Tennis legend who came under fire for boycotting Qantas Airlines for their pr-equality policy made one more anti-LGBT remark attacking trans kids. ‘That’s all the devil … that’s what Hitler did and that is what communism did… it got the mind of the children,’ Ms Court said adding that children become transgender if their parents just don’t care about them, kids feel offended and hurt and start to think something kind of ‘If I were a boy\girl, my mom and dad would love me more’. Going on Court says that tennis is full of lesbian women. They have always been there, she knew a couple of them when she played, but their amoount grows rapidly nowadays, the sportsman believes.
The Venerable Rod Bower of the NSW Central Coast said in a statement, ‘Margaret Court does not reflect the views of 95% of Australian Christians who, frankly, would be appalled at these comments. The majority of Australian Christians support marriage equality, are frustrated that the Government has not yet allowed a free vote on this basic issue of fairness and inclusion. Most of us know an LGBTI Australian and we want to celebrate their lives and relationships and it’s time the Government got on with the job.’ His stance was echoed by Rodney Croome, spokesperson for marriage equality group Just.equal. ‘Margaret Court’s comments will shock many Australians and discredit the movement against marriage equality,’ said Croome in a statement.
