Margaret Court Has Gone Even Harder

Tennis legend and Perth pastor Margaret Court has tripled-down on her controversial stance on homosexuality and same-sex marriage.

Speaking in an interview with Neil Johnson on the 20Twenty Vision Christian Radio program earlier this week, Court went again.

"I mean, tennis is full of lesbians," Court said.

"Even when I was playing there was only a couple there, but those couple that led, that took young ones into parties and things... because they like to be around heroes," she said.

"And you know, what you get at the top is often what you’ll get right through that sport."

"With the literature, the bullying, the stuff that’s put out today to children’s minds – I tell you what, if you haven’t got parents who bring you up that way and you’ve got parents that don’t care, and you’re hurt and offended if somebody's saying something to you... your child can just start to think, 'Well maybe I am a girl' when they’re a boy, or 'Maybe I’m a boy and I’m a girl'," she said.

"That’s all the devil ... but that’s what Hitler did and that’s what communism did – got the mind of the children.

"And there’s a whole plot in our nation, and in the nations of the world to get the minds of the children."

Australian tennis stars Sam Stosur and Nick Kyrgios have been some of the high-profile voices to come out in opposition of Court's comments.

World number 1 Andy Murray has urged the tennis community to sort out the situation before the Australian Open - citing a potential boycott of Margaret Court Arena would cause a scheduling nightmare.
