This whole thing has been a good example of how difficult it is to reconcile two opposing views of the same person. Even our media are arguing over it.
This is an Aussie sporting legend (60+ Grand Slam titles) who is now 74 years old, and who was raised in a generation where to be gay was to be vilified. She is also now a pastor.
If we value free speech, she needs to be allowed to have her own opinion. Her entire upbringing and belief system is reflected in her opinion. Yet her sporting achievements are in no way diminished because of her views are they? She wasn't a drug cheat. She played fairly and well, and earned her titles.
The consensus in Aus is that gay marriage is inevitable. I'm glad to say that most, if not all, people I know, even my 94 year old grandmother, can't understand why it hasn't happened yet.
But I don't want to re-name a sports arena because the old lady who it is named after opposes it.
