Margaret Court is getting a lot of deserved criticism over her train wreck interview last week, in which she accused marriage equality proponents of bullying christians who come out with her sort of drivel. She's a legendary tennis star of Australia, but now is the pastor of a pentecostal church. Although she says her tennis shouldn't be bought into the debate (some now want Margaret Court arena renamed) she does appear to be using her fame from tennis to push her view.
But aside from all that I'd like to thank her for laying out the real driveling reasons why christians don't want the likes of David and I to be married. When they've run out of arguments it seems this is the only thing left; ie "the bible says". In fact she even says to read the first two pages of the bible FFS. Yes, her whole argument is based on a 2,000 year old book written by desert nomads who believed in an invisible sky man.
It's not even an argument but a religious viewpoint. It certainly doesn't belong in logical debate on the subject. The only effect her beliefs expressed as they are is to illuminate to Australians the sheer bigoted idiocy of why christians are opposed to our love for each other.
