Further to my previous post (An Australian Open Letter to Margaret Court), and reports of peaceful wearing of rainbow colours at the Australian Open, Margaret Court’s un-Christ-like supporters continue to demonstrate their hateful and dangerous language.
When these homosexual activist have lived and played with HONOR, a championed life, then they are entitled to make a statement, however while you are living with dis-honor, perverted behaviour, please keep your mouth shut and don’t tell the 98% of population about marriage & family….. shame shame shame.
After I had seen it the third time, I knew that such language could not go unchallenged.
G’day Jeffrie Trika,
I see you and I have many things in common; both heterosexual; happily married (in my case 35 years); with children (in my case 3 adult sons); we both run our own businesses; we even share a connection on Linked-In. I’m guessing that, in your estimation, this makes me “entitled to make a statement”.
I see no place in Australian society for discrimination. Those who discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation are just as evil as those who would discriminate on the basis of race, nationality, religion or eye colour.
I won’t be keeping my mouth shut.
Cheers — Mike
Some of my key comments…
Jeffrie, clearly we are not going to agree.
I think that what you are saying is hurtful and dangerous.
My only hope is that you have learned tonight that my opinions are held by many more Australians like me; not just those who, in your words, are “living with dis-honor, perverted behaviour”.
… and after Jeffrie trotted out the “it’s a disease that must be cured” line…
It’s not a disease. It’s not something to be “cured”. And even if it was, would you use the language that you used in your opening comment against someone with bipolar disorder? Hepatitis? Leprosy?
Finally, the craziness reached a crescendo when Donny McGregor, a “so-called Christian” pastor from Generation Fire chimed in with “same sex attraction is … the fruit of sin. And the lifestyle is sinful.“
“the fruit of sin”? “lifestyle is sinful”? That’s exactly the sort of harmful crazy talk that sensible people, heterosexual or homosexual, will no longer accept.
Don’t let them get away with it any more, folks.
