It is hard that they can voice their opinions but I am not allowed to voice my opinion.

Yes it’s that Margaret Court, Grand Slam tennis legend & conservative evangelical Christian minister, freely voicing her opinions against same-sex marriage to a journalist for The Australian.
It’s the old story – freedom of speech in “the public square” does not guarantee freedom from criticism, and will always mean that person/group P listening in the same “public square” has an exactly equal freedom of speech to voice their opinion that person/group Q’s opinion is wrong.
It’s also quite rich for somebody like Court, who stands up at an actual pulpit every week, freely expressing her opinion to a receptive audience, to accuse others of not “allowing” her to speak elsewhere, when all the protest involves is marriage equality activists and allies waving rainbow flags in the tennis arena named after her. She’s just miffed that it will be difficult for her to effectively counter such a simple visual demonstration of broad support for same-sex rights, so she’s getting her spin in first.
