Margaret Court has again voiced her views against same-sex marriage, urging people to vote “no” in a postal plebiscite for the sake of Australia’s children.

The tennis champion, who grew up in Albury, wrote a letter to The West Australian saying it was disappointing the issue had to go to a vote.

"Australia’s moral values are the envy of the world, nobody wants to leave and there are plenty in the queue wanting to get in. If we have to vote, let us vote no to gay marriage,” she wrote.

Court backed up her views speaking on Vision Christian Radio, saying it was a plot to get into the minds of children.

“I have had letters from atheists and they say ‘I’m not a Christian, but I know marriage is between a man and a woman’ and there’s very, very good people out there,” she said.

“It brings such confusion and that’s where a lot of it stems out of – it’s from the mind not knowing what they are because when you biblically come through the word of God, you can change those thoughts.”
