    Grow up. She has a right to her opinion. She is a Christian pastor and is following her beliefs. The Bible which really is God’s word says homosexuality is sin. You want to live that way that is your choice just like it is her choice (and mine) to tell it will send you straight to hell.

    1. Bud says:

      Several things are said in the Bible to be sins, yet no one follows those dictates today. The one that has been cherry picked by Christians is the gay thing.

      1. Mystralfire says:

        I suggest you read the Bible more thoroughly. I’ve read it cover to cover twice. There are a lot of sins, none cherry picked, all are still taught and followed to this day. They’re called the Ten Commandments. The Christian tenants guide many people and people should be grateful for them rather than denounce them. Christ stated that we were to “Love one another as they do themselves”. That doesn’t mean not to point out deficiencies we see in ourselves and each other. We are to strive to be the best person we can be and to love unconditionally. Ever know a parent that never chastised their child because they didn’t want their kid to think they weren’t loved? Seriously. Love can easily be displayed in correction. Correction isn’t hate.

        1. Gen11American says:

          In contrast to the Christian Bible, there are 100 tenets in the Koran which implore Islamists to commit violent jihad against non-believers and infidels, and yet our STUPID, TREASONOUS leaders have flooded millions of Islamists into the US! That’s what happens when we elect NON-CHRISTIANS to positions of power! The #2 man at the DNC is a radical Muslim, and he came close to being elected the #1 leader of DNC! In order for non-Muslim Americans to survive, we MUST stick together, not be divided by sexual gender, sexual orientation, race, Christian sect, or nationality!

      2. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

        You’re wrong! Most of the things that outsiders call sin, are actually customs given by God to the early Hebrew tribe, that later became Israel. If you want a list of sins that ALL Christians should consider sin, I suggest you get a list of the 10 Commandments. As long as we follow those, & follow Christ, we’re safe. However, God explicitly forbade homosexual behavior for them. Then in the NEW Testament, Paul gives an even broader list of sins that will send you to hell. Homosexuality is included in that list. IF you become a Christian, then you’ll understand better. But, unless God opens your eyes to what is in the Holy Bible, you won’t understand 1/3 of what you read.

        1. Alan BYRD says:

          One thing God calls sin and its found in John 16:9
          John 16:7-15
          Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
          8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
          9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; (which is the word)
          10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
          11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
          12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
          13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
          14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
          15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

          So folks SIN is UNBELIEF.

      3. Adorable Deplorable says:

        LOL. Cherry picked. IT’s all of them Einstein! Try Abortion, Transgender ism, and taking communion after divorce. OUr society has become a self absorbed what about me society where if it feels good do it, and it’s all about ME..and MY FEEWINGS…the Liberal doctrine in a nutshell…and it won’t end well for such souls.

      4. SILENTHAMMER says:

        ????????? Please enumerate.

        1. bub says:

          For an action you take to be “sinful,” you must be able to understand that your action was wrong. If you’re mentally unable to understand the difference between right and wrong for whatever reason (mentally retarded, unaware that an action is wrong (eg: a headhunter who has grown up believing that eating another person was actually doing their spirit a favor), sleepwalking at the time), you cannot be held accountable for those actions. It would not be just, and God is nothing if not just.

          But once one is enlightened about a sin and why it is wrong, you are now aware. You are no longer ignorant of God’s will (as defined by His own Word in the Bible). His will for us is found in the New Testament, but much enlightenment in His ways and intentions, and a historical perspective (which helps to interpret the New Testament) can also be found in the Old Testament.

          It is like a little kid being taught right from wrong. God will not punish someone who is still figuratively a little kid. But once you know, you have no excuse any longer.

          HTH …

      5. bub says:

        Don’t worry, being an idiot is not necessarily a sin.

        Lying is though, so if you know that you’re misrepresenting the truth about Christians, then you have a problem. If you’re just ignorant, you’re still OK. It’s not like your leftist good … ignorance of the law with Christ would be a valid excuse.

        Now you know, so from here on out, you no longer have an excuse.

        1. Adorable Deplorable says:

          Matthew 10:13:
          His disciples came and asked him, “Why do you use parables when you talk to the people?”
          He replied, “You are permitted to understand the secrets[a] of the Kingdom of Heaven, but others are not. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given, and they will have an abundance of knowledge. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them. That is why I use these parables,

          For they look, but they don’t really see.
          They hear, but they don’t really listen or understand.

          Ppl who move away from God will become dumber…Bud is an example of this.

          1. bub says:

            Jesus’ words are obviously true to those of us who believe Him. That’s why we see much of the world getting more and more irrational, all the while insistent they are smarter than all others.

            These worldly weasels and goons hold close the most absurd, unsubstantiated and totally “out there” beliefs which have all the history of mankind debunking them, while seemingly completely unable to fathom the simplest of classical point A – to – B – to – C logic. It’s so inhuman, one can imagine them totally at home one day amongst screaming demons, flying on a path away from complete knowledge and order and love, toward infinite entropy, unfathomable madness and utterly violent, unending, solitary survival … away from the Light and into the Darkness.

            GOD! Don’t leave me with the evil ones … PLEASE take me with you, Lord Jesus!

            I just now realized what a horrible prospect it would be to live eternity with leftists … ARRRGH !!!

          2. Adorable Deplorable says:

            In Saint Faustina’s vision of he11, where actually she was given a tour, so to speak, she speaks of the 7 torments of he11.
            The 1st is loss of God. Liberals have been living this way all their lives, but once in he11, they’ll learn, what it really means to have a loss of God, no hope, no love, no compassion, no comfort, total and utter despair, and anger…”And there will be weeping and gnashing of the teeth”.

      6. Craig Vandertie says:

        The Catholic church also condemns those who commit suicide as well, no matter how emotionally damaged from mental illness those people happened to be.

        1. bub says:

          Not true. “Condemns” is present tense, and the Catholic Church does not “condemn” those who have no control over their actions for ANY otherwise-sinful act. Also, the Church may “condemn” sins (for example, suicide of a mentally clear person), but that only means it is warning the sinner that they are in danger of loss of eternal life by their actions, and the Church believes this is God’s own teaching. The Church does not feign to believe that it can designate ANYONE will definitively lose their eternal soul in NY situation, as no one but God knows what is taking place within a person when he or she performs an action. There isn’t a legitimate Pope in history (in my knowledge) that has ever stated that he could over-rule God’s judgement of someone’s eternal disposition. That’s bogus.

      7. Yul bolsun says:

        Lol you’re funny

      8. Thisoldspouse says:

        By your ‘logic’ then, nothing in Scripture can be authoratative regarding sin. It’s a free for all.

      9. jong says:

        Incorrect and with out any evidence. Any sin that is not repented is a sure ticket to hell. And homosexuals refuse to admit that GOD comes before they do. They do not repent and therefore are going to hell. Very simple even for you.

    2. fiftysevenchevy says:

      AMEN Rose, I agree with you 100% !!!!!!!

    3. imonmyway says:

      I agree, Rose, except for one very important thing. The only sin that will send a person to hell is rejecting the Savior, Jesus Christ. All other sins are forgivable if repented. But to die without a genuine faith in Christ is to enter eternity without Him. Believers are not perfect, but forgiven, and the evidence of their faith is that they sincerely attempt to live by the teachings of Christ. Some homosexuals are believers, but choose to rationalize their sin because it is such a difficult drive to deny, like a fat person who continues to fail at losing weight. Others turn totally against Christ, choosing homosexuality over Christ. There are consequences for being a rebellious child of God, and some sins carry more risk than others, but losing one’s salvation is not one of them. I find it disturbing that radical homosexuals have the power to punish Christians for expressing belief in biblical/traditional marriage. If homosexuals choose to live together, that’s their business, but that arrangement does not meet the definition of marriage.

      1. saber-dance says:

        imonmyway, great name. You told the truth and nothing but the truth

        1. Gordon Blaies says:

          Yes! but not all of it,their sins can be forgiven if they confess them to the lord and turn from their unrighteousness. 1cor 6:9-10 tells us
          who will not inherit the Kingdom of God, It says.. know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters,nor adulterers, nor effeminate,nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards , nor revilers, nor extortioners,shall inherit the kingdom of God. And he tells us in 11
          And such were some of you but ye are washed , but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the lord Jesus, and by the spirit of our god. In other words they must ask Jesus into their hearts, ask him to forgive them and confess their sins, turn from them, and he will cleans them, and they will be a new creation in God, old things have passed AWAY all things are new.

      2. Alan BYRD says:

        John 1:1 say In the beginning is the word and the word is with God and the word is God. Jesus Christ is the word that became flesh. The only sin that will send anyone to hell is rejecting the word, because the word is God. So to all the people & nations who reject the word on homosexuality will be seen in hell, because they rejected Jesus the Word.

      3. Gay Phillips says:

        Hope you are not saying that being fat is a sin. You can be fat for many other reasons than eating too much. Thyroid issues and certain medications being two examples. Hope that was just a bad anology.

    4. Adorable Deplorable says:

      I cldn’t agree more…To even ponder removing her name from Stadium displays a higher level of intolerance for one’s blfs…we tolerate the sinful homosexual behavior, so I’ll make a deal…U tolerate my blf that it’s a sin and I don’t approve of any sins…including murdering the most innocent and defenseless unborn babies in the mothers womb…how does that sound?
      The Bible says it’s an “abomination”.
      God made us for ONE purpose, to join by marriage and create a family, more souls for heaven.
      What’s so hard to understand for ppl?

    5. big KAhuna says:

      Absolutely correct- well said.

    6. jong says:

      Yep and before long they and the muslims will come together and try even harder to press for power. Of course each thinks they will win and then turn on each other. Typical liberalism

  2. desert fox says:

    There is only one view you are allowed on this by the liberal ck suckers and puss lickers and that is their view.

  3. kroz says:

    They will stop at nothing to silence any and all opposition to their beliefs.
    Where did they learn to do this? Likely from their University profs and social media. They have no respect for anyone that goes against their “religious” beliefs.

    1. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

      When was the last time you read, or heard, of a suicide bomber being a Christian?? During the Crusades a lot of abminations were committed. But, they were just men, & thought they were doing God’s work. They were totally wrong, & no Christian today would commit the same atrocities. (We’ve learned better since then.) And, the ones that have no respect are the liberals in this country, especially. Anyone that disagrees with THEIR opinion, is shouted down, or physically attacked. The devil has control of a LOT of Americans, but one fine day, that will end.

      1. kroz says:

        I agree. Can’t wait for that “day” when it will all end.

      2. Dogface says:

        Sharon Jeanguenat; Please note that the Crusades were an honorable and just assault on Muslims who had violently overtaken the Christian and Jewish Mid-East, including what is today Israel. The few documented atrocities by Christians warriors, who came from all over Europe, are extremely minor compared to the atrocities committed by the Muslims of Christians and Jews as they were systematic conquered by the evil sect known as Islam. Christians and Jews were slaughtered by the thousands. The Crusades were, in truth, a war to free the Christian and Jewish Holy Land from the Muslim conquerors. It has only been since the inception of liberal domination on our college and university campuses that the Crusades have been criminalized. As a history major, I can tell you that when I was younger and in high school and at the university level, the Crusades were considered a noble experience.

        1. Adorable Deplorable says:

          Great Pt. In a nutshell the Crusades came about to STOP Muslim occupation…The Muslims conquered everyone in their path to dominate that region…and today no different, they want to dominate the entire planet…not integrate…only foolish politicians blv such nonsense.

  4. jong says:

    The tide is turning. Trump is in and Pence is the one he follows in morals and ethics. The SCOTUS is about to have another judge appointed to it and the abomination of what Ginzburg and others did can be reversed back to I believe the 1974 decision that its the States that must decide. Which means the faggots are out of luck since only 13 states voted for it. The rest wanted nothing to do with it. Ole jug ears is about to lose another of his signature bs.

  5. Bilgeez says:

    Being gay doesnt give one special rights and privileges, which is what they want. A same sex couple being “married” is a joke; the idea of marriage is to legitimize offspring of the couple. No same-sex couple can have a child by coitus. They have to adopt or use surrogates, that does not mean they are “married”. If they want to have a committed social contract, sobeit, but by no stretch of the definition are they “married” as a heterosexual couple are.

    1. Bud says:

      The exercise of a fundamental right is hardly “special rights and privileges.”
      Marriage is not essential to bring forth offspring.
      For all your deeply-held beliefs, a gay couple is just as “married” as you are. The marriage is about the couple, not any potential offspring. There is no valid reason gay couples have to ride in the back of the bus.

      1. fiftysevenchevy says:

        This is the kind of Stupid answer one gets from a QUEER or Lesbian!!!!!!

      2. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

        No one is entitled to special rights & privileges that countermand GOD’S law. And, no matter what they call it, it is NOT God’s intentions. HE was the One that named it marriage, not human beings. And, in no way does homosexuality match what blacks went through. And some still do to this day. Slavery in America was a stain on our history. But, in no way have homosexuals been treated like they were. They had fire hoses turned on them, DURING peaceful protests, police dogs were sicced on them, they were shot, houses & churches burned down. I’ve NEVER heard of homosexuals being treated to that kind of hatred. Blacks were considered subhuman back before the Civil Rights Act put a stop to a lot of it. I remember the day that the first little black girl had to attend a segregated school. If not for the National Guard protecting her, the mob would have torn her to pieces. I watched it on t.v. & was horrified at what I saw. So quit aligning yourselves with the civil rights struggle during the 50’s & early ’60’s. As a Christian, while I disagree with homosexuality, I don’t believe they should have to suffer the same horrible treatment. I have a friend that is gay, & in no way do I denigrate her. Grow up!

        1. Dogface says:

          You are so correct, Madam. “Hate the sin. Love the sinner.”

      3. bub says:

        Marriage is not a “fundamental right.” It is nowhere listed as a “right” in any civil society, ever.

        The only thing fundamental about it is that God created it for His man and woman to propagate His new human souls.

      4. Adorable Deplorable says:

        Your espousing a Liberal belief, or a belief based on Liberalism. Liberalism, at it’s core, is all about ME, all about MY FEELINGS….right? But that dsn’t mean it is the same set of standards for marriage. Marriage is about the creation of families and about creating children for Gods kingdom.
        U brought up the problem with married couples, most who thing it’s about them..that’s a big problem, it’s not about the parents. At it’s core it is a selfish attitude. A ghay couple is not married in any way except by name only…they can not “create” children and a family.
        Of course Ghay couples can live in sin, as many do, and shout from the rooftops how great their sin is, even prance in the street at the ghay parade in their chaps proudly advertising their sin. Satan even sold humans to call it “Ghay”…it’s called wordsmiths and he’s good at it, Ghay is also meant as “happy”..see how it works…but nobody see’s it this way. This is what Satan does…have humans believe that bad is good. That’s Y they call him the Great Deceiver. Satan did the same thing with Abortion…first he waters down real life, calls it a fetus, but remember he never quits…then he says it’s your right, it’s your body…even though there is another little body with a heart, lungs, brain..etc…then he keeps going and says if anyone says u don’t have this right they’re sexist, misogynistic…U see how it works…all of it developed by the Devil himself.

        I’m just glad I don’t have to answer for it upon my death.

      5. Rich Shack says:

        Marriage is not a fundamental right. It is an agreement between a man and a woman. For many, it is a religious ceremony. The state can recognize that agreement and set requirements for it. Many religions do not accept or recognize gay marriage. In our country, people have an explicitly stated constitutional right not to accept it based on the expression of their religious beliefs.

      6. hunter34 says:

        you have to realize that same sex “marriage is against the natural order of the human relationship

      7. GeorgeHarris7 says:

        Bud, marriage is not a fundamental right, despite the interpretation of Justice Warren’s decision. A ‘gay marriage’ is about the couple, and ONLY the couple, and not the offspring because a gay couple cannot reproduce among themselves. Biology 101!

      8. meine Meinung says:

        They don’t have to ride in the back of the bus but they are not entitled to any special
        privileges. Also, I would not want a LBGT teacher in the same classroom with my kids.
        If they have any class, they will keep their lewd desires to themselves. They do however
        make excellent employees.

      9. jong says:

        Incorrect. The Supreme Court was not operating upon law but, upon liberal wants. And child one can only be married with the blessings of GOD. And GOD has made it very apparent how he feels about homosexuals.

    2. a2plusb2 says:

      As I see it, “marriage” was and is a social construct created by society and impressed on women and men in order to provide for the inevitable children. Men and women who produced children out of wedlock were either shot-gun forced into marriage, or…. And men who didn’t take responsibility for the children they produced were punished for it.
      — Back in that day and age a few hundred years ago the most impoverished families were headed by single mothers.
      — Given that, a ‘same-sex marriage’ is something strange, like a quango, called a ‘marriage’ only by analogy.

      1. bub says:

        Marriage was NOT created by man. It was NOT a social constructed by man’s society.

        It was God’s creation, and was and is His plan for man and woman, and the propagation of His new human souls.

        1. Adorable Deplorable says:

          I cldn’t have said it any better.

    3. Buford says:

      Marriage is the joining together of two different things to make something “new” (often involving the reshaping of one or both, with a material additive which serves to bond.) You can put two of the same thing in the same room, but that is not necessarily joining, and is never the kind of joining specified by the word “marriage.” You can marry peanut butter and milk chocolate to yield a Reese’s cup, but joining peanut butter to peanut butter just yields more peanut butter. Those who want to redefine the word, obliterate the specificity of meaning which gave the word universal purpose. It is tantamount to redefining a numerical subset of spectral frequencies in order to make red into blue by re-definition, while making it illegal to distinguish the blatantly observable. The “gay marriage” concept is fallacy, an intentional deception that serves no good purpose. Not only are homosexuals unable to marry as heterosexuals, they are unable to marry like anything in existence, animate or inanimate, animal, plant, or mineral.

  6. urbisoler says:

    The world WILL go to hell in a hand-basket if we do not learn to “agree to disagree”. Once we have come to that point, we can learn to live together. Otherwise, it will all be over and we can leave the Earth to the rest of the animal kingdom. Margaret Court EARNED accolades and having a court named for her. The fact that there are those who want to punish her for her views is a sign of the decline of western values. That will allow the Eastern radicals to take over one of these days. But you can’t teach progressives anything. They are incapable of learning.

    1. Kenny Albert says:

      The little fairies will stand back, fold their arms and pout.

    2. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

      If Muslims ever gain control in America, homosexuals will be the first ones disposed of, then the other liberals will be killed, then Hollywood, & then Jews, then Christians. They’ll be crying for the conservatives to come use their ‘illegal’ guns & save them. By then it’ll be too late for them. Once God says that’s it, REAL Christians will be gone from the earth, & they won’t have to deal with us. BUT-be warned, that is when God’s wrath will be poured out on the earth

  7. foudkirk says:

    Homosexuality is an abomination.

    1. chief1937 says:

      According to the bible that is absolutely correct . You don’t like the statement take it up with God his word says so.

  8. KDC says:

    OH, who cares? Never heard of, nor do I care. Isn’t Serena Williams a man, anyways?
    P.S. She looks like an old Liz Warren….lol

  9. Kenny Albert says:

    Agree with the .5 % or else. Why is it whatever the faggots push is beyond reproach but everyone else is demonized? I will never side with same sex marriage.

  10. kunling says:


  11. Sharon Jeanguenat says:

    As a female pastor, she has an obligation to speak the truth. As a Christian, I totally agree with her statement. But, to try to destroy her achievements as a tennis player is beyond childish. I’m sick & tired of the left running roughshod over those that don’t agree with them. Apparently they think that THEY are the only ones entitled to freedom of speech. I hope they either protest before or after the Open, & don’t ruin that, but, I’m not holding my breath. One of these days, these people are going to face the Judge of all Judges, & it isn’t going to be pretty.

  12. joleenworden says:

    It is pathetic that people who profess freedom would try to diminish the athletic achievements and honors of a 74 year old woman, just because she is a Christian. I am certain if she were a Muslim who believed in Sharia Law no one would be saying anything, even though Muslims kill gays. The comment by Madison Keys “why can’t we just be nice to each other?” is inane because the people attacking Margaret Court are not being “nice” to her. It is not “nice” to try to take away the honors she achieved for sports because a few trouble makers do not like her religious beliefs. Religious discrimination is against Australia’s Constitution as it is ours, and her beliefs have nothing whatsoever to do with her athletic accomplishments. Gays should shut up and quit trying to force their lifestyle on others. I am just as offended by them as they may be by Court, but apparently only liberals are allowed to be offended these days. I do not stick my sex life in the face of others and neither should they. If Gays want acceptance, they should also accept Christians.

  13. EE says:

    Gayness is usually a nutritional deficiency during the 1st 6 weeks of conception when everyone is female. During that time testosterone should fully develop for males but doesn’t even though it is enough to create a penis but not a full male brain. A union of 2 gays is not marriage. Union yes, marriage NO! We have a 3rd sex now! It is a deformity that must be recognized but not discriminated against nor favored. Lesbians & gay dicks should not compete against females. A separate category is needed since some gay guys are happy to steal women’s’ trophies. Each of the 3 sexes has benefits to society, appreciate each other.

    1. Adorable Deplorable says:

      I’d like to see some evidence of that.
      TBS, Transgender-ism, is another attempt, successful one at that, with Satan manipulating souls on earth, it’s a mockery of God’s gift, God does not make mistakes…for one to change hsi or her sex is a mockery of God and buying into the Devil’s lie.
      Is it ironic that over 40% of Transgenders commit suicide?
      U see how the Devil works…he never quits…then the Transgender blvs death is the best option…not good!

  14. SILENTHAMMER says:

    She is obviously a student of nature and nature’s God. Not only is this her OPINION, it is God’s DECREE. So, go ahead, make your choice. God doesn’t choose for us. WE choose our own destiny. From the moment we are conceived, we begin ETERNITY. We can’t “not be”. So, when those who CHOOSE serious sin and fail to repent — fail to keep trying — they’re making their choice. So be it. Thanks, Margaret. All you showflakes, get ready for justice after you die. On earth, there is mercy. After death, there is justice. Period.

  15. Judy Kidd says:

    Amen she does have a right to her opinion. I agree with her. If you are a homosexual I don’t hate you. that is your life and your fate not mine.

  16. Doxie says:

    This woman speaks her opinion and, according to lefties, that is not permitted unless one agrees with the lefties. So, now the lefties want to pretend like she never existed, never won any tennis honors and delete her from history… just like the lefties in the United States are rewriting history, trying to pretend the Civil War never happened by eliminating the Confederate flag and statues of Confederate soldiers/officers, etc. It’s a wonder they haven’t plowed up the Confederate cemeteries. Lefties are only tolerant so long as only their beliefs are being accepted, descent is not tolerated! “The tolerant left”..yeah, sure.

  17. Joe Geshel says:

    Here’s my little bit of wasting ink. None of this matters.

      If none of this matters, why is Margaret Court unhappy about it.
      If none of this matters, how are you here to write your [defeatist] sentiment.
      If none of this matters, life is meaningless, imaginary, boring, in my head alone … and you don’t exist.
      If none of this matters, God and His will doesn’t matter, and if that were true, none of this exists because even if I were God and this is only in my mind, then this DOES exist, and I say it DOES matter …. so you are wrong, I’m right, and you no longer exist … poof … until I tell you to return, Joe Geshel !!! SILENCE !!!!!

      1. Joe Geshel says:

        A rare screed that totally misunderstood what I said.
        Your statement about [defeatist] means what? You conclude that “this” is all of life? A little narrow perhaps? SILENCE !!!!! is that your view of tolerance, forgiveness, belief in God? tsk tsk.


        1. bub says:

          You need to read, Joe, and think. You’re the one who misunderstood what I wrote, but then mine needed to be followed a little closely to understand it, while yours was simply “None of this matters.”

          Let me explain mine to you, Joe, line by line. I wrote:

          “If none of this matters, why is Margaret Court unhappy about it.”
          That’s pretty clear … it sure does matter to Margaret.

          “If none of this matters, how are you here to write your [defeatist] sentiment.”
          Again, if none if “this” matters, 1.) how come you’re commenting?
          2.) If everyone were gay, none of us would be here, and you wouldn’t be around to comment.

          “If none of this matters, life is meaningless, imaginary, boring, in my head alone … and you don’t exist.”
          If EVERYTHING (life itself) doesn’t matter, then it is either meaningless or doesn’t really exist, or exists in my mind only and you don’t really exist because I made you up.

          “If none of this matters, God and His will doesn’t matter, and if that were true, none of this exists because even if I were God and this is only in my mind, then this DOES exist, and I say it DOES matter …. so you are wrong, I’m right, and you no longer exist … poof … until I tell you to return, Joe Geshel !!! SILENCE !!!!!”

          Taking it further, if even my concept of a being higher than myself doesn’t exist … or if I’m the only thing existing, and then I’m God … well … STFU little Joey!

          1. Joe Geshel says:

            I am sure Jesus did not teach you to talk the way you do.

          2. bub says:

            I would not count on you knowing anything that Jesus taught, let alone what he’s taught me. I will say everyone has their struggles in life with evil.

            But in this case, once again you didn’t get the point. I was conjecturing that if “life” boiled down to only the (real) person who was creating this conversation, in this case me, being “god” I could tell you anything I please, including abbreviations for bad words, or, [my] heaven forbid, the real things.
            So I guess you’re lucky I didn’t use the words, right oh ye of little imagination?

  18. Craig Vandertie says:

    Her reasoning cannot be refuted, whether evolution or god and creationism 2 people of the same sex cannot procreate, that is all that is needed to label homosexuality an abomination.

  19. Martin says:

    God bless her for speaking her belief and that of others.

  20. Michael Kendrex says:

    You can’t bring off spring into the world with adam and steve its only satan plan to stop God’s offspring!

  21. Phillip says:

    God is pretend.

    1. getstryker says:

      Your comment says everything about you . . . FAIL!

    2. bub says:

      If God is pretend, you’re pretend. So for your sake, I’ll pretend you were pretending.

  22. Jacky says:

    My biggest complaint about the LBGT–a-z is not that it is wrong because GOD will handle that –it is for those who pervert marriage— the only place it has ever been defined is in the BIBLE which states it is a holy union between a man and a woman

  23. JoAnn Leichliter says:

    Silly me: I had no idea that in order to qualify as an all-time great tennis player one had to espouse a particular set of opinions. What a peculiar sport.

    1. Thisoldspouse says:

      Yes, the lines on the tennis court are different for homosexuals than they are for normals, apparently.

  24. SILENTHAMMER says:

    A couple of truths: God created us out of pure love (he gets nothing out of it). In Leviticus, the act of a MAN having sexual relations with another MAN is condemned. It’s actually the act of fornication that’s being condemned here. It’s not the ATTRACTION of the men. About suicide, Judas was condemned to Hell because he would not ask God for forgiveness for what he’d done to Jesus, and chose suicide instead. God was ready to forgive him, but he would not ask. About sin, one has to KNOW that a thought, word or deed is wrong, intend to commit and carry through the thought, word or deed, knowing it’s wrong, but doing it anyway. An improper thought is not a sin — we ALL have them. It’s what we DO with it. Try our best to put it out of our mind with a distraction, a prayer or a change of venue. “The Bible” has many instructions for our best living. But context is very important. For example, in the Old Testament, adultery was punishable by stoning to death. Adultery is also included in the rules for conjugal relationships found in the same area as homosexual practice. But Jesus, The Fulfillment of God’s Word, changed MANY things that were proper under different circumstances. He brought us SALVATION from our sin, through Himself. We are ALL tempted to sin. The important thing is to admit the sin, sincerely ask God for forgiveness (as well as a person against whom you have knowingly and intentionally sinned), and sincerely intend to AVOID that sin forever. And, finally, worry about your OWN “house” before condemning anyone else. Advise, yes, but leave the judgement to God.

  25. Joe Geshel says:

    Homosexuality is a choice. Sexual acts are choices made by individuals on the when, with whom, and how. The vast majority choose to do it with one from the opposite sex. Some choose to do it with one from their same sex. Other than when criminal force is used all sexual activity is a choice. One whose sexual activity has always been with someone of the opposite sex may well make a different choice in the future. And one who has made same sexual activity their choice may also choose to engage in opposite sex activity.

    Why some choose to have exclusive sexual activity with someone of their own sex is individual reasoning. The history of close encounters and the aftermath feeling that come to the fore influences how one will act when future intimacies avail. To say that someone has no choice in the matter is to conclude that they don’t have a mind of their own. That is demeaning of that individual in the worst way.

    So, Margret Court believes that when the homosexual choice is made it is a sin. Nothing wrong with believing that. No criticism needed. Her past accomplishments in tennis were awarded by naming a stadium after her. Nothing wrong with that. She is not trying to prevent any homosexual tennis players from playing there. The name of the stadium should not be changed because a small insular minority have an internal problem with the religious beliefs of Margret Court.

    Now you know!

  26. Arielle says:

    This woman has a RIGHT to her opinion, whether we agree with it or not ! Her beliefs have NOTHING to do with her excellence on the Tennis Court.

  27. Messenger says:

    “I think that is very sad, it’s something I deserved,” Court told Sky
    News on Monday. “… I’ve earned those honors and accolades and awards.”….dear Court, don’t forget that you have earned much better rewards by standing for the “Truth”, you have been promised “eternal life in the Kingdom of God and the Salvation of your soul”. Let them have those vain awards…you don’t need them!!!!!

  28. JonathonGalt says:

    This is a prime example of why I see politics as a religion, perhaps even more so than most God based religions as it has the power to exercise retaliation against those who disagree with the dogma presented by those in power, and frequently does so.
    Our children should be taught ‘how’ to think, not ‘what’ to think.

  29. CommonSense4America says:

    So,,,everyone has a right to their opinion,,,,EXCEPT when it differs with the LBGTQXYZ liberal community. What a crock of she it. Team Court. MAGA (Make Australia Great Again)

  30. Gen11American says:

    When the US Supreme Court decided that fudge-packers should have the right to marry, and that gay couples should be allowed to adopt children, any and all SANITY disappeared in this nation, and an “Anything goes” social climate replaced any and all possibility of domestic tranquility! Transgenders are now being inducted into our armed forces, even under James “Mad-Dog” Mattis, and US taxpayers will be footing the bill for their sex-change operations and hormone therapy. And female soldiers in our military will now have to “get used” to showering with perverted transgender males pretending to be females! The credibility of marriage itself is now coming under question, and young males are avoiding commitment like the plague! The same thing happened in Sweden when same-sex marriage was made legal! We either reverse the insane, ungodly trends which the Liberals are foisting upon us as a means of bringing down this Christian nation, or the Liberals will succeed!

  31. cccarr says:

    whiny babies! You must agree with me or I will go after you! Come on people get real. Your world is not the only World there is

  32. Pyara Chauhan says:

    Margaret Court said what she believes. She is not imposing her views on any one. I am free to reject or accept her views as is every one else. We can debate the issue but to divest her of any rewards she won and the acclaim she got as a result is not called for. That is exactly what Hitler and his ilk would do

  33. Phillip says:

    Yeah, sexuality is a mess here in the USof A (and it got worse with last week’s BM tweets about transgender people in the military… the way I see it, if you’re willing to take a bullet to protect our freedomS, whether or not you have a willie, or dress like you do even if you don’t, etc., you’re fine by me!).

    … but why aren’t we talking about health care? Trump promised on the TV that “everyone will have the best health Care” but now he’s pushing a bill that will cost 20,000,000 people (including ME, probably!!) their insurance.

    WTF, that’s not why we elected him! HE LIED TO ME.

  34. Gay Phillips says:

    She has a right to her opinion. In my whole life, I have never seen such violent reactions to free speech. Those of you involved in attacking and penalizing people who disagree with you should carefully consider the precedent you are setting. The only two possible outcomes are anarchy and dictatorship. Is that what your aims are?

  35. mannasage says:

    Calling attn. to the obvious is what? The Liberals can’t handle being labeled as homosexuals, all of Australia
    is anti-gay & Ms. Court is now a Christian pastor! GET OVER IT GUYS!
