DIVER Matthew Mitcham looks forward to the day when his sexuality will be of as little interest as the colour of a person's hair, their eyes...

Well if that day comes... it would be the destruction of the likes of Sydney Anglicans and Anglican Mainstream! I mean who could they persecute in the name of Jesus to market themselves as the chosen ones?

Well Mac... they could always take over the marketing of you or me!

SMH reports that Australian Olympic diver Matthew Mitcham, will be a defending gold medallist in London. As he prepares to defend his Olympic title and live up to the expectations on him, Mitcham is still willing to carry the added weight of interest in his advocacy of gay rights. Mitcham says... Ideally I would like one day for sexuality to be as unimportant and uninteresting as hair colour, or eye colour or even just gender in general. One day it will get to that. But until it is easy for sports people to come out without fear of persecution or fear of lost sponsorship income and stuff like that, or fear of being comfortable in the team environment, I don't mind attention being brought to my sexuality in the hope that it might make other people feel more comfortable … in being comfortable enough about who they are in their sporting environment.

It's perfectly clear that Matthew needs some lessons in self-hatred from David Petersen and Haydn Sennitt!
