BERNARD GAYNOR : “ SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS ABOUT 2 MEN WALLOWING IN THEIR OWN EXCREMENT, THAT’S NOT SEX “
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
14 November 2016
NSW Anti-Discrimination Campaigner and public interest litigant Garry Burns has lodged a number of complaint’s under the NSW Anti-Vilification Provisions of the ADA 1977 ( NSW ) against QLD resident Bernard Gaynor over a number of statement’s he published on the internet that Mr Burns alleged were harmful to homosexual Australians.
“ SAME SEX MARRIAGE IS ABOUT 2 MEN WALLOWING IN THEIR OWN EXCREMENT, THAT’S NOT SEX ”, RETWEETED Mr Gaynor.
“ How could that statement concern serious questions on enrichment toward the Great Conversation in the following ideas claimed by Mr Gaynor as quoted in one of his recent Defence’s filed. ( sic )
a. Morality ;
b. Public policy on political freedom ;
c. Religious freedom ;
d. The implied constitutional freedom of political opinion ;
e. The Public interest ;
f. Threads posed to those freedoms and ideas ;
g. Open and frank participation in the Great Conversations that these issues pertain to.
His above statement goes a step further because it clearly vilifies male homosexuals based on their homosexuality , “ said Mr Burns.
The NSW Supreme Court of Appeal will hear an Application lodged by Mr Gaynor on Wednesday 30 November and and Thursday the 1 December 2016 at 10am challenging jurisdiction and constitution.
The court will determine and hear the proceeding involving the matter of an Applicant and Respondent living in different states in relation to the ADA 1977 ( NSW ).
“ Basically what Mr Gaynor is legislating for is a right to sit on his computer somewhere in Queensland and publish material on his website / Facebook pernicious to homosexual Australians claiming that I and others who share my characteristic ( homosexuals ) don’t have jurisdiction to lodge a homosexuality vilification complaint against him under any state or territory discrimination or equal opportunity provision because the public act according to Mr Gaynor occurred in QLD and not NSW.
Regarding the public act, the Dow Jones decision states, regarding the internet, an act occurs where the content is downloaded.
The internet crosses all state and territory boundaries and any jurisdictional argument put forward by Mr Gaynor in his application must fail.
This case for me involves a very important question of law to be explored and I will fight for it “ said Mr Burns.
