Change the name of Margaret Court Arena

Ms Court has slammed QANTAS for their support of gay marriage. With the below comments

"I am disappointed that Qantas has become an active promoter for same sex marriage,

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

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

It is as a nation that we stand up to this sort of bigotry and say enough is enough. We will not have a international venue that gets world wide attention named after someone who is so narrow minded. 

Regardless of personal convictions Ms Court should not have her name on a venue that is home to people of all races, gender and sexual persuasion if she personally does not share the views of equality that her venue provides for.
She herself has brought this negative attention upon her name and it is a sad fact that she will now be remembered for her contribution to ongoing bigotry instead of her contribution to sport. I actually feel for her but I cannot support anyone that supports the marginalisation of anyone

Brian Morris, Daniel Andrews and Craig Tiley need to show the community that discrimination is not an Australian value
