Tennis Legend Margaret Court Boycotts Qantas Over Airline's Gay Marriage Support

24-time Grand Slam tennis champion Margaret Court has announced she'll be boycotting Qantas based on the airline's support of same-sex marriage. Court has promoted Qantas for decades. 

She writes in a letter to The West Australian newspaper (via Yahoo! Sports):

"I am disappointed that Qantas has become an active promoter for same-sex marriage," she said in a letter to The West Australian newspaper that was widely shared and discussed on social media.

"I believe in marriage as a union between a man and a woman as stated in the Bible.

"Your statement leaves me no option but to use other airlines where possible for my extensive travelling."

Court says she's willing to chat with the Qantas board about her position, "but it won't be in the Qantas lounge."

More room on Qantas flights for us, Margaret!

I don't know.  I'd want to see some medical verification that that's a woman.  Looks more like a tragic drag queen to me.

Someone tell her she's living in the wrong place, she needs to move to the United States of Jesus.  Anyhow, she's overrated. 11 of her 24 titles came in Australia when many of the top players never even competed because the Aussie Open used to be before Christmas.

Sorry Maggie but it's Serena and Steffi for tops all time.

Poor old Margaret, she assumes that everyone must do and act as she demands, all very Christian. Regardless of what the law is, Court is never obliged to do anything she doesn't want, but she wants her dingbat beliefs forced on everyone else, by law. We must be grateful that modern secular governments do not permit Christians their traditional responses to difference: torture and mass murder.

I love how she says "where possible." That means she still fully intends on flying with them. I bet Qantas' bank accounts are sure going to suffer now that she's "not flying them."

She's just made because with a face like hers marriage is going to prove difficult.
