Call her black sheep or Tennis’s forgotten Wonder Woman, Margaret Court, isn’t really doing her legacy any justice with her words. The Australian star, who has a record 24 Grand Slam titles, recently delivered an anti-LGBT sermon at her church in Perth. The 77-year-old tennis star, who is already in line to be honored for her achievements in the Australian Open next month, has recently attracted controversy yet again by hitting out at transgender athletes and saying that LGBT teachings come straight from the devil. She was issuing a sermon on Trans athletes competing within male and female sports. Court said, “You know with that LGBT, they’ll wish they never put the T on the end of it because, particularly in women’s sports, they’re going to have so many problems.”
Court also blasted children as little as 7 for changing their genders at a very young age. Court added, “It’s so wrong at that age because a lot of things are planted in this thought realm and they start to question, ‘what am I? You know, even that LGBT in the schools, it’s of the devil, it’s not of God…”
Court is no stranger to making incendiary comments that hurt the emotions and feelings of millions residing in Australia and across the world. Back in 2017, she went public with her hate and opposition of gay marriages. Gay marriages were legalized in Australia during the year 2017, and Court was quick to say just how much she hated the concept. Court later cleared that she didn’t hate gay people, but just thought that this was a choice they could back out of.
