Dylan Caporn writes at the West Australian:
Mrs Court continued to argue against same-sex marriage yesterday, speaking at a Perth Rotary Club series on the issue, saying the debate was surrounded by a “sense of intimidation”.
“I sense at the moment you can put a Yes sign in the window, everything’s all right, but if you put a No sign you get a brick through your window,” she said.
“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 union.
“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.”
