20 August 2014
On the 14 August 2014 the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Decisions Tribunal ( NCAT ) dismissed an Appeal lodged by
Therese Corbett. ( See Corbett v Burns ( 2014 ) NSWCATAP 42 )
The initial legal action against Ms.Corbett under the anti-discrimination act 1977 was taken by anti-discrimination campaigner Garry
Mr.Burns is a openly homosexual man who’s work is taken in the “ public interest ” in the promotion of “ tolerance & understanding” for
all minority Australians.
Ms.Corbett was found guilty of vilifying homosexuals under the anti-discrimination act 1977 in a decision handed down on the 15
October 2013 when she was the endorsed candidate for Katter’s Australia Party for the Victorian seat of Wannon in the federal election
until she stood down in January 2013 after telling a journalist from her local paper :
“ I don’t want gays , lesbians or paedophiles working in my kindergarten”.
“ If you don’t like it , go to another kindergarten , Ms.Corbett said to the Hamilton Spectator.
When asked if she considered homosexuals to be in the same category as paedophiles , Ms.Corbett replied “ yes “.
Ms.Corbett was ordered by NCAT to publish an apology in the Sydney Morning Herald in a prominent position at her own expense and
to apologise to Mr.Burns in writing.
During a conversation between Mr.Burns and Ms.Corbett’s Counsel it was revealed that the defendant won’t be complying with the
Orders of the court and publish an apology in the Sydney Morning Herald or to Mr.Burns for her unlawful acts of vilification.
Mr.Burns said , “ I will pursue the defendant through the Supreme Court of NSW until these Orders are enforced. Those who seek
high office have a responsibility to not breach the anti-vilification provisions of the anti-discrimination act 1977 ( NSW ).
Mr.Burns said , “ It’s no surprise the defendant refuses to comply with the Orders of the court when we have a short , white ,
unattractive baldheaded man in Canberra saying it’s OK to be a “bigot”. Well it’s never OK to be a “ bigot “.
We are all part of the Australian family regardless of who shares our “ QUEEN ” size bed. Those in powerful positions like Ms.Corbett
