Tennis star Margaret Court attacks gay marriage

Former WA Tennis star and now Victory Life Church pastor, Reverend Margaret Court has slammed efforts to introduce gay marriage in Australia, claiming she wants to protect families.

Today, The West Australian reported Rev. Court’s opposition to gay marriage, saying the country ‘needs to wake up as a nation to protect future generations’.

She said society was best served by ‘strong family units’ that have a mum, dad and children.

‘They are not perfect, often dysfunctional and despite the fact the role models may be distorted and even severely flawed, there is no reason to put forward alternative, unhealthy, unnatural unions as some form of substitute,’ Rev. Court told the West.

‘No amount of legislation or political point-scoring can ever take out of the human heart the knowledge that in the beginning God created them male and female and provided each with a unique sexual function to bring forth new life.

‘The fact that the homosexual cry is, “We can’t help it as we were born this way”, as the cause behind their own personal choice is cause for concern,’ she said. ‘Every action begins with a thought. There is a choice to be made.’
