Controversial tennis ‘great’ Margaret Court is the headline attraction at a Liberal Party fundraiser in Melbourne next Thursday 22 June, after she said homosexuality was an ungodly "lust for the flesh" only weeks ago. 

"That's what Hitler did. That's what communism did," Court said in a recent radio interview. " [they] get in the minds of the children. There's a whole plot in our nation and in the nations of the world to get in the minds of the children." "It's all in The Bible, God's got so much in there about the mind how it affects us, affects our emotions and our feelings," she said.

"You can think 'I'm a boy' and it'll affect your emotions and feelings and everything else, so that's all the devil." Court announces.

It is abhorrent that Court should be invited as a guest speaker at any event especially a fundraiser for the Liberal party's Sandringham branch and candidate for the seat at the next year's election, Brad Rowswell. It is appalling that following Court's recent public comments that neither Victoria's oppostition leader Matthew Guy or the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have not recommended her withdrawal.

Equal Love encourage all who are concerned about this hateful bigotry being given yet another opportunity to publicly insult and degrade people of our community, in joining us to protest Court and to send a strong message to the Liberal Coalition Government that endorsing bigotry is disgraceful and not reflective of the views of the majority of Australians and Christians.

Lets be loud, proud and saturated in the colours of the rainbow.
