Margaret Court: If Same-Sex Marriage Is Legalized, There Will Be No More Christmas Or Easter In Australia

The West Australian reports:

Tennis legend Margaret Court has returned serve to a Perth tennis club that turfed her out as a patron this week, saying she is being silenced for her views on same-sex marriage. Despite being dumped by Cottesloe Tennis Club, Mrs Court remained defiant yesterday, accusing the LGBTQI community of wanting to “destroy marriage”.

“Ian Thorpe can stand for the other side and there’s no criticism but when we stand for our Christian beliefs or God’s side I feel sporting people are very intimidated, they’re put down.” Club president Ian Hutton said management had decided to expand the number of vice-patrons at the club, but when Mrs Court’s re-election was put to members, they voted against it.

“We already have 36,000 gay couples in this nation, that’s not a lot of people when you think about the 25 million. They already have civil unions. “They want marriage because they want to destroy it.” Mrs Court, a Christian minister based in Osborne Park, said the consequences of a Yes vote would be severe.

“It’s not about marriage. It will affect Christian schools, it will affect freedom of speech,” she said. “There will be no Mother’s Day, there will be no Father’s Day, there will be no Easter, there will be no Christmas.”

    Yeah, cuz if there’s one things we gays hate it’s an excuse to put up tacky holiday decorations.

    Says the woman who has a face that looked like it caught on fire and then somebody put it out with a pick axe.
    Says the woman who so ugly she has to sneak up on a glass of water to get a drink.
    Says the woman who so damn ugly she make a train jump the track and take a dirt road.
    Says the woman who teeth so damn yellow when she smiles all the kids come running cause they think its the school bus.

    I know I know we are not supposed to make fun of people but damn she just deserves it.

    • 3-Star

      Right. She better be glad they don’t celebrate Thanksgiving with a turkey neck like that!

    • HeyYouKidsGetOffMyLawn

      She looks like a turtle that desperately needs to go back into a shell.

  • Todd20036

    Remind us again how gays getting married affects ANYONE else’s marriage, much less Christmas or Easter.
    And please use very specific reasons other than “Just because” and “God Said So”.
    Feel free to post any double blind studies.

    • Jmdintpa

      Facts, studies… what are these things you speak of?

    • Acronym Jim

      Bringing up science? Elitist!

    • Chris Baker

      OMG, what is so difficult to understand? It’s called “logic.” With gays getting married, there will be no such thing as a “mom” or a “dad”. Without a “mom” or a “dad” there will be no one to buy Christmas presents or Easter baskets. With no one buying these things, the sales of Christmas gifts will plummet and manufacturers will stop making Christmas and Easter decorations and no one will be want to celebrate the holidays and people will just give up and forget about them.

        The people of Gondwanaland got together with those from Laurasia and left the planet. It was millions of years before homo sapiens evolved. That’s who is in those UFOs.

    • Chris Baker

      Christmas and Easter are not celebrated in Saudi Arabia, a country without same-sex marriage. In fact, in every country where Christmas and Easter are not celebrated, same-sex marriage is not legal. So Margaret is just plain out lying. When a Christian has to lie about one topic to convince you, you have to wonder what else she is lying about.

      • LovesIrony

        a christian lies? but that is against their book’s laws.

        • SammySeattle

          *some exceptions may apply

        • Casey Rodríguez

          A christian doesn’t mean perfection, we lie too.

          • LovesIrony

            hurtful, hateful, bigoted lies… give all of you a bad name. One would think you would be more outspoken in condemning such, but many of you christians appear to enjoy condemning gay people more…which also gives all of you a bad name.

          • Casey Rodríguez

            Can’t help you there since I’m gay too… I know the people you are talking about

    • Steverino

      No.

      Typical Christianist RWNJ “logic” which holds that we are both a tiny minority which deserves to be ignored, yet at the same time are so all-powerful we can overwhelm and destroy the majority culture. Which of course means the RWNJs have nothing of substance to say about us, so they grasp for mutually exclusive superlatives in the hope something will stick with someone.

      They have been deploying this silliness for as long as I can remember. Back in the day, even the mainstream media were holding to vilifying gay men as being both effeminate pansies and dark, murderous creeps, somehow simultaneously. It made me confused as to what I should carry with me at all times until straights could get their stereotypes straight: should it be a rat-tail comb today, or a switchblade?

  • HoneyBoySmith

    Are Christmas and Easter so fragile that they can’t handle Australians giving people the right to live their lives as they see fit?

    Will Christianity really crumble if Christians aren’t given the privilege to dictate the lives of total strangers?

  • Joe in PA
  • Only ridiculous arguments are on the side of discrimination. No “Mother’s Day”, no Xmas, no Easter? Didn’t happen here in the US so please come up with a REAL reason to deny equality other than invoking god’s name in vain.

    • Todd20036

      There aren’t any, so they come up with these fearful arguments to try to invoke emotions.
      Remember, when our RWNJs claimed we were undermining marriage, when we wanted to make it legal to marry children or pets or inanimate objects.

      • Harley

        Well, there was this one guy who wanted to marry his porn filled laptop but I think he was republican.

        • Todd20036

          And the laptop dumped him.

    • Cackalaquiano

      I think their argument is “there’s one definition of marriage, Christmas, Mothers Day, etc. It’s OUR definition. Ours alone. No other interpretation or perspective is valid. If society opens up to other perspectives, we’re suddenly not exclusive or superior. So no.”

    • Uncle Mark

      The poor pathetic creature; she has spent so much time demonizing us…the other children of her god, that she is incapable imagining that we love or can love and simply want the same thing she can have. She has reduced us to nihilistic demons.

      People, who are happy in their lives (and in their marriage) generally don’t obsess over what their neighbor does. I can only imagine how sad her life, as well as her Christmases and Easters must be.

  • madknits

    Right. And after Christmas and Easter, we shall destroy all the churches, herd the breeders into breeding gulags, and force everyone to watch Tales of the City. Straight children will be bullied and mocked, (You! Yeah, you, the one in the purple T-shirt! You cannot wear that colour! You’re too stupid to know you’re an autumn and need to stay away from jewel tones! Breeder!) and all straight men, except for the brood stock, will be sent to the mines.

    It’s true, here in Canada there is no more Christmas or Easter, the churches have all been closed, and little kids are taught sodomy in kindergarten. Opposite sex couples are not allowed to marry, and must meet in secret.

    Oh, wait, none of that ever happened.

    • Stogiebear

      Taking into account the mountains of corpses lining every sidewalk from people waiting to get elective surgery, it’s for the best that the churches were closed.

    • Same here in The Netherlands…

    • Frostbite

      Sounds like a great place! I’m relocating!

    • Reality.Bites

      Well a lot of churches have closed and it never snows on Christmas in Toronto and Vancouver.

      Close enough. 😉

      • marshlc

        Drove past my childhood Catholic church yesterday – it was sold to a Korean congregation of some sort years ago. And man, it was packed! Parking lot full, no street parking anywhere on the block! I wonder what she’d say about that – would she be happy the church is full, or unhappy because it’s full of Koreans?

    • Helen in Ireland

      Ditto in Ireland. And even if we don’t follow a religion we still enjoy Christmas presents and Easter eggs!

      Here in Norway we’ve taken it a step farther: Mandatory buttsex for all, and it MUST be gay sex. All 16 year-olds are gifted a starter kit from the government. It includes 3 dildos, 2 buttplugs, 3 different vibrators, 10 liters of lube, and a lifelong subscription of a gay magazine of the recipient’s choice.

      We celebrate our National Day on the day of International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia [true!]. We celebrate jul (yule) instead of christmas, Easter is nothing but spring break for schools [semi-true].

    The ‘court’ moron has a last name of court – how apropos

  • Stogiebear

    The only person I hear threatening marriage, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and/or Easter is Margaret Court. Maybe Australia can institute a Harridan’s Day just to commemorate her.

  • Karl Dubhe

    Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day, were not a result of religious devotion. They’re pure capitalism, as the greeting card industry wanted to make more money.

    The rest of the hag’s arguments are the same old bullshit. I say there’s an extra vowel in her name.

    • Steve Smith

      Years ago in Britain, Mothers’ day was known as Mothering Sunday and was marked by a special church service (Anglican) and maybe a bunch of flowers as a gift. No cards, no tat, no schmaltz. Fathers’ day did not exist at all, until the Gods of Hallmark decreed that it should be so.

      • Mothering Sunday had nothing to do with Mommy. It was a day (the fourth Sunday in Lent) on which people attended services in (or at least offered special prayers for) their local cathedral, the Mother Church of their parish. Or on which individuals would visit and attend services in the church in which they were baptised, in other words in which they were born into the Faith and thus their personal “mother church”; and to do that was called “to go a-mothering”.

        It wasn’t until the 1920s that Mothering Sunday became conflated — largely at the behest of the greeting card industry — with Mother’s Day, an entirely secular celebration which had originated in the US in 1914. And which is observed not in Lent but in early May.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothering_Sunday

        • Steve Smith

          Interesting. Though in the UK Mother’s day is still celebrated in March.

  • KnownDonorDad

  • olandp

    Just remember that she, Margaret Court, lost to a tennis hustler, Bobby Riggs, who was soundly defeated by a lesbian, Billie Jean King.

    That explains it all.

  • RobynWatts

    How can Margaret be silenced about her very fragile religious beliefs when she won’t shut up from showing everyone that she’s a nutcase?

  • David in Palm Springs

    “If we believe that marriage is between a man and a woman and it’s in this Bible, we should be able to say that,” she said.

    Saying something is not the same thing as legally forcing your *chosen* beliefs on everyone else. And freedom of speech doesn’t mean that people aren’t allowed to publicly criticize you.

    • Reality.Bites

      No, but fortunately freedom of speech also allows idiots like Court to show the world they’re idiots.

      Is there a single Australian stupid enough to believe this who isn’t already voting No? I doubt it.

      They’re good at targeting people who already hate us. Not so good at converting – and a decade after prop 8 there are far fewer undecideds on this issue.

    • Harley

      Well, polygamy IS the biblical marriage. How many sister wives do you have Margarita?

  • GayOldLady

    “There will be no Mother’s Day, there will be no Father’s Day, there will be no Easter, there will be no Christmas.”

    If the gays get married there will be no clouds in the sky, no stars in the heavens, no crops in the fields, no grapes on the vine, no mountains, no rivers, no oxygen, no Sun, no Moon (well, maybe some moon).

  • “There Will Be No More Christmas Or Easter In Australia”

    However, there will be plenty of sun damaged skin, and lots of work for dermatologists. You should get your priorities straight Maggie.. those abnormal growth on your skin, are not signs that Jesbus are trying to communicate with you..

    • Reality.Bites

    The foundation of heterosexual marriage is slavery. It enslave the women to the men. They are property to be own and treated as such at the mercy of their owner. The till death do us part is not some romantic term that symbolize the longevity of a marriage rather a binding contract of these slaves see to the death of their owners until they are being sold to the next bidder. The culture of inequity still persist in many forms whether its hiring practice, salary inequity, birth control and not the least the discrimination of the LBGT community. Same sex marriage threaten that foundation of this archaic heterosexual marriage institution because their union of one man and one woman is never about love and commitment of two equal partners. It’s always about ownership of another human being. I’m all fine if these idiots want to subscribe to this baseless virtue but get the fuck off my civil rights property. They are not my owners!

    It’s been said that after a certain age a woman needs to choose face or body – keeping her body lean and fit will give her a drawn face, while keeping her face pleasantly filled out will make her body larger than she might want.

    Clearly when facing a choice between face and body Margaret Court chose insanity.

    First, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are holidays made up by the greeting card industry. Second, “God” doesn’t exist. You’re making a fool of yourself “standing” with a delusion. Last, gay couples making a solemn commitment to each other for life is good for all of society, not just the the couples themselves.

    Why do all these RWNJs think that Freedom of Speech means they can say anything they want and if they are criticized for saying something really fucking stupid then they are having their freedom of speech taken away. Enough with the fucking stupidity. I hate these people.

    • -M-

      She calls people scum and that’s free speech. People tell her she’s wrong and that’s oppression. Obvious double standard is obvious.

    • MDixon34

      Yes, if she didn’t have freedom of speech this article would not exist.

  • TrollopeReader

    Ms. Court — there are still Christmas and Easter islands. Oddly enough, there are still Easter and Christmas holidays in the US and Europe.. My b/f and I celebrated both !!

      Voltaire was and always will be right:
      ‘I always made one prayer to God, a very short one. Here it is: “O Lord, make our enemies quite ridiculous!” God granted it.’

        Terrif, ospalh!

  • Statistics Palin

    If you can’t laugh at insane, snake-juggling fundamentalist boobs, whom can you laugh at?

  • Electriq

    Well then, if that’s the case, she can start storing all those fabulous, soon-to-be verboten Easter eggs up her stupid, paranoid ass for safe keeping.

    As for all the Christmas glitz and glitter, she needn’t trouble herself; it will be definitely be recycled:

    “our Christian beliefs or God’s”

    What bloody arrogance to think you know anything about this alleged god. What smug and absurd moral self-congratulation.

  • Matt

    C. U. next Tuesday. The ignorance in this woman is stunning.

    “They want marriage because they want to destroy it.”

    I’m sorry, how exactly did she get from “want” to “destroy” like that? I cannot follow the mechanics of their logic. And I’m not sure I want to try.

  • ted-

    So, stupid people are not exclusive to the US. Good to know.

    It’s a global pandemic situation 🙁

  • Rusty Fender

    Swarms of locusts and frogs, plagues, dogs and cats living together, atheists eating babies, eclipses are a sign of the Apocalypse, lightning is god throwing a temper tantrum – how ignorant can these religious idiots get??

    • RoFaWh

      There is no bottom to their barrel.

      • Ben in Oakland

        But there are plenty of barrels to their bottoms.

  • How elucidating. I had no idea that either Mother’s Day, nor Father’s Day were religious holidays in Australia. #GoodToKnow

    • RoFaWh

      It’s seventh cousin four times removed day that is the Real Problem.

  • RaygunsGoZap

    Does this woman not own a single scarf? Cover that mess up.

  • -M-

    It’s literally just about civil marriage law and equal rights.

  • Xolodnyj

    All because she believes in a book, written by humans in order to control people.

  • RoFaWh

    Lady, if you learned to treat your gay neighbors like humans, a lot of your facial wrinkles would go away.

  • Hank

    The Sky is Falling, The Sky is Falling….. er NOPE!!!

  • LovesIrony

    christians are still free to lie to their children about who brought them goodies as a way to celebrate their most sacred holidays

  • justmeeeee

    I wonder if ole Mogs did a bit of muff diving back in her salad days and is not going through some kind of reaction formation thingie…

  • JWC

    Sorry you old bat your 15 mins of fame has expired

  • grada3784

    I didn’t realize that the war on Christmas was over and that Easter was another casualty.

  • netxtown

    From the looks of it, she needs to focus a bit more on her empty bed. There’s a reason she can’t get laid. She has completely washed away the lines between vagina and ‘can u nail this’

    • Ben in Oakland

      That’s unkind and untrue. Take a look at her neck. More lines and spots than the national tic-tac-toe tournament in china.

  • PhillyProfessor

    Margaret Court – lost badly to Bobby Riggs.
    Billie Jean King – destroyed Bobby Riggs.

    Moral to the story: One lesbian is way more powerful than Margaret Court’s God.

    • kareemachan

      And Margie’s bitter after all these years…

  • Robincho

    If more celebrities were named for where they got famous:

    Esther Pool
    Muhammad Ring
    Yo-Yo Stage

    Discuss amongst yourselves…

  • Ken M

    We’ve stolen “Gay” from Christmas, the same way we’ve stolen the rainbow. We don’t steal it. They give it up!

    • grada3784

      Straights can no longer don their gay apparel at Christmas time.

  • Ben in Oakland

    There will be no mothr’s day, Father’s Day, Easter,or Christmas.

    She sure doesn’t think much of either Christians or heterosexuals.

    • grada3784

      mothr’s? Is that Mother’s or Mothra’s?

      or both?

      • Ben in Oakland

        In my case, both.

  • kareemachan

    Wow, she’s a bitch.

    • grada3784

      Worse. I think she’s one of the lizard people from V.

  • MyLovelyNose

    Wow, she really is stupid. Bobby Riggs probably won because she’s so fucking stupid.

  • ChuckLikesToCanuck
  • Franciscan

    The one good thing about her obnoxious lies is that they will probably inspire more Australians to vote in favor of gay marriage.

  • unsavedheathen

    Cannot wait for Serena to get back in form, win two more majors and eclipse this woman’s claim to fame.

  • PeedeResistance

    The woman who could not even beat middle-aged, washed-up Bobby Riggs and who saw a (gasp!) LESBIAN woman (Billie Jean King) dispense with him instead has managed to ensure that she will always be remembered as an old, hideous, toxic, delusional hatemonger–and nothing else. 🙂

  • Cedrick66

    So, just to be clear, most Australians are aware that gay marriage exists in other English speaking already and that such countries still have xmas and easter, churches, Moms and Dads, and all that rot right?

  • M Jackson

    There is no such thing as Easter.

  • JCF

    Inasmuch as I normally don’t like bashing a woman on her looks…that’s one creepy looking creature! [Hate eats you from the inside out]

    • Lizard

      Forget Mitch McConnell, Margaret Court is the real Turtle.

    • Ann Kah

      Sunshine and age will do that to you, but that’s not why she is in this story.

  • Sad. At one time in her life, she was a decent tennis player, but apparently her brain has ossified enough for her to spout nonsense – and why the press would even pay her any attention is solely due to the sad state of her mental faculties.

  • trouble94114

    Okaaaay then. I think I’m just going to have to chalk this up to garden variety senility with a side of bigotry

  • Jarred Jones

    we were gonna do the easter egg hunt this year, but then i saw a pair of gay husbands and just couldnt bring myself to search out pastel poultry miscarriages

  • Yeah, I remember back in Canada in 2006 when we were legally married, we two women uttered our final vow, “I Paula,” “And I Trish” do solemnly swear that now that we are a married couple, we vow that every minute of the day, we will work towards destroying marriage on this planet.” Did this happen? Well, we got so involved in loving one another – caring for our Canadian community – sending money to hurricane relief programs – we forgot!

  • Puck

    What’s up with that neck of hers?

  • HappyDance904

    She should be more worried about her neck…..gross!!!

  • Dunkerblinker

    Besides being an ignorant bitch…thst neck is disgusting

    • Ann Kah

      Cut it out. She isn’t being criticized for looking old.

      • Dunkerblinker

        looks like ostrich…I said it was ugly….didnt say boo about old.

  • infmom

    No, there’ll just be no more Margaret Court. And nobody will notice.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    So, is the heat miser gay?

  • Davester

    Amusing how she looks like infamous right-wing BBC critic Mary Whitehouse – circa 1971.

  • jonfromcalifornia

    Another fine example of Evangelical stupidity on display. Go read another bloody book besides the Bible, woman!

  • Ann Kah

    Margaret, I enjoyed watching you play tennis, but not when you open your mouth. You are, rightly, being told to shut up. You are not telling people what you stand for, you are telling people what you stand against, and more importantly you are telling everyone WHO you stand against. It’s an attack on people who do nothing at all that will adversely affect you. It’s not a “freedom of speech” thing; it’s an unprovoked attack that homosexuals take personally. They are doing you a favor when they refuse to give you a platform for your bigotry. I see no reason why homosexuals should not each bring a lawsuit against you for those personal attacks; you can avoid that by slinking back under your rock.

    Good for the tennis club, for not allowing themselves to be associated with your hatred.

  • duder1897

    What’s going on with her neck? Is she turning into a dinosaur?

  • BurningTongues

    She and her dinosaur neck can go jump off a bridge.

  • pete

    will there still be a santa claus and easter bunny?

  • Albert Ross

    She’s right you know. Dispose of Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas and especially Easter! Over and done with!

  • LAguy323

    Why is her neck smothered in onions?
