FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FORMER KATTER AUSTRALIAN PARTY CANDIDATE TESS CORBETT FACES COURT OVER PUBLICLY COMPARING HOMOSEXUALS TO PAEDOPHILES
27 September 2013
On the 31 January 2013 Sydney Anti-Discrimination Campaigner Gary Burns , the man famous for suing radio disc jockey John Laws for calling gay men “pillow biters” lodged a vilification complaint with the President of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board (ADB) against Ms.Tess Corbett , KAP candidate for the federal seat of Wannon in Victoria over her public statement’s vilifying homosexuals.
Ms.Corbett is a resident of Lake Bolac in Vic.
Ms.Corbett’s statements were published in various NSW newspaper articles and in online saying :
” You should be able to discriminate …..I don’t want gays , lesbians or paedophiles to be working in my kindergarten. If you don’t like it go to another kindergarten …..Paedophiles will be next in line to be recognised in the same way as gays and lesbians and get rights”.
Ms.Corbett went on to say “gays and lesbians” and ” paedophiles” were “moral issues”.
Mr.Burns said , ” Ms.Corbett’ s statement’s in relation to homosexuals in a political campaign were not only likely to incite hatred and or serious contempt of the ordinary reasonable reader or viewer of the various publications towards homosexuals on the basis that there is a unfounded connection between paedophiles and homosexual men they actually did”.
In the Hamilton Spectator on line a number of pernicious statement’s were left in relation to homosexuals: (sic)
Peter Erbacher said , ” Ben , I’m sure she , (Corbett ) as I aren’t scared of sodomites. Therefore “homophobia” is an incorrect choice of word”.
Haydn Sennitt said , ” Ms.Corbett ought to be congratulated for being frank enough to speak her mind on this issue. The link between homosexuality and paedophilia is not an imaginary- it is already happening and has been so in the US since the 1990’s and children are at risk. It’s been documented empirically too. She is a community leader , not a bigoted homophobe.
Ewan Mc Donald said , ” Of course there is a link between homosexual practice and paedophilia . As Tess correctly pointed out , the arguments employed to legitimise homosexual practice (i.e “born that way ) can be employed without modification to also legitimise paedophilia. In theological terms , bot are sexual perversions and we observe that indulging in homosexual practice often ( but not always) leads on to paedophilia. A greater percentage of paedophiles come from the homosexual community than come from the exclusively heterosexual community”.
Mr.Burns said , ‘ I am a male homosexual and not a child molester. I don’t run around sodomising male children because I was born of a homosexual characteristic.
When I was 11 years old growing up in the country hitch hiking to and from the township of Moree to earn 60 cents an hour gardening money to help mum pay for school clothes I was always offered money by middle aged men with baby harnesses visible in the back seat of their cars for sexual encounters. The “pink elephant” sitting in the corner quite often isn’t always what it seems.
Clearly the public statement’s of Ms.Corbett were premeditated and designed by her to cause maximum harm , damage and violence towards those perceived to be of the homosexuality characteristic”.
The Application is listed for hearing on Thursday 3 October 2013 at 10: 00 am , The Administrative Decisions Tribunal (ADT) at Level 10 John Maddison Tower 86 Goulburn Street Sydney.
