In a similar vein.....this lady has been sacked for stating her opinion. The authorities detest what used to be known as Freedom of speech and Christianity.

This is just the start Harold sir.

Christianity and freedom of speech are dying.

Fair play to that lass for sticking to her guns.

Considering Cricket Australia only suspended the 3 Amigos for a year I believe for 'CHEATING' during an actual game....to actually ban someone, permanently I believe, for voicing his Christian beliefs is preposterous in the extreme imo.

Freedom of speech is dead.

I agree with him.

Rugby loses a great player.

people are entitled to have their beliefs whether you agree with them or not. Because you (not you specifically) do not doesn't make you correct.

Just as long as He is the wrathful vengeful God who consigns sinners to Hell.

I agree.

The article I posted earlier gives some insight into why things went the way they did.

This article illustrates the warped thinking of Raelene Castle, Rugby Australia, Alan Joyce :-

https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=12237998&ref=rss

Good article by Latham. I noticed however that one of Folau's messages said...

The last of those posts was when Folau warned on Instagram that Hell awaited "drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters."

But those who sacked him are quite happy for him to mention drunks, thieves, fornicators & adulterers. Hypocrites!

What it boils down to is that Rugby Australia's main sponsor, QANTAS was unhappy and their man, Joyce, put pressure on Raelene Castle. So, we now see how the sponsors run sports.

I hope Folau's legal action succeeds and that QANTAS, Rugby Australia, Joyce and Castle are held to account for their gross abuse of power.

Much as I respect and support his right to express his views, I have to say that now he is pushing it.

Israel Folau sets up crowdfunding page to raise $3m in donations to fight Rugby Australia

Plus, anyone wearing a baseball cap backward is obviously a loser.  1561016659855.jpg

He will easily get that amount.

Plenty out there feel the same way as he does. Including me!

As I said, I support his right to say what he said.
I just think that he has now gone off the rails a wee bit.

But you're right that he may well get the funds.
