On the 30 June and 1 July 2015 Sydney Anti-Discrimination Campaigner Garry Burns lodged two alleged homosexuality vilification complaints under the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 with the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board ( ADB ) against Cr Christine Sindt over her publishing of statement’s to her Facebook page that Mr.Burns was “ a gay child sex activist ” and that homosexuality equates to the criminal act of pedophilia and other derogatory statements which targeted male homosexuals.
Cr Christine Sindt is a La Trobe City Councillor who lives in Morwell in Victoria.
Mr.Burns alleges Cr Sindt posted statements on her Facebook page , which vilifies him unlawfully and homosexual people in general.
Some of the statements Cr Sindt published to her Facebook page were : ( fully sic )
Gordon Briggs: “ They’ll be making poofterism compulsory next “.
Robert Gomez : “ They ( homosexuals ) deserve the last rights “.
Mike Brown : “ I hardly think same sex marriage between consenting ADULTS , should be mentioned in the same context as your local priest trying to bugger the choirboy”.
The President wrote to Cr Sindt on the 10 August 2015 asking her to provide a response to Mr.Burns allegations.
Cr Sindt ignored the President’s request to respond until a second letter was sent.
Cr Sindt was due to respond to the President by the 15 October 2015 but has ask for a further extension until the 10 November 2015 , making the length of time for her to respond to the President more than 3 months.
The President’s delegate has refused Cr Sindt’s request for a further extension because that request is unreasonable and unfair on Mr.Burns.
Garry Burns said , “ Clearly , Cr Sindt only has contempt and indifference for the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board ( ADB ) and for me personally because of homosexuality but I can assure this Respondent she will face court whether I have to drag her there kicking and screaming by her golden locks ”. No one is above the law. This is the lesson Cr Sindt will learn”.
Cr Sindt commented on a media release published to her Facebook page in relation to Mr.Burns: “ Gay Activist And Accused Muslim Terrorist Preach Tolerance”.
Cr Christine Sindt said in reply : “ Strange Bedfellows”.
Mr.Burns is seeking the aggregate damages under the Application for the harm , distress and hurt the statement’s published on Cr Sindt’s Facebook page caused him personslly.Those statement’s brought irreparable damage to Mr.Burns public profile.
“ If Cr Christine Anne Sindt thinks I’m going to run away like some timid new – born burmese kitten she better run herself a little reality check because the sharks are out and the waters about to get a little bloody ”, ( figuratively speaking ) , said Mr.Burns.
