Margaret Court  Stands by her opposition to gay marriage


PERTH, Australia (AP) — Former tennis great Margaret Court, now a
Christian pastor, has taken to the pulpit to defend her opposition to same-sex
marriage.

The
24-time Grand Slam winner said in a
letter to The West Australian newspaper
 last
month that she would stop flying Qantas Airways “where possible” because the
Australian airline “has become an active promoter for same-sex marriage.”


The
comments drew a rebuke from many in the tennis world. Martina Navratilova wrote an
open letter
 criticizing Court
and recommended that tennis officials rename the arena that bears the
Australian’s name at Melbourne Park.

The
New York Times reports
 that
Court addressed the controversy Sunday while speaking to congregants at a
Pentecostal church where she serves as pastor. The Times reports that Court
told congregants: “This isn’t about the Margaret Court Arena. This is about the
truth.”
