Australian rugby star dropped after homophobic posts

The governing body of Australian rugby has condemned an anti-gay post by Wallabies fullback Israel Folau on social media, calling it ’unacceptable’ and ’disrespectful’. Folau published a message on his Instagram account saying that hell awaits ’drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators’. Rugby Australia has terminated their contract with Folau.

Pathetic. All he said is "hell awaits" gay people which, if you are Christian, is absolutely true. I didn't know Aussies peddle in religious persecution.

Don't come to Australia if you have an opinion! You will lose your job now that we have lost our freedom of speech!

soon enough, if you reject dating the same sex, you will be branded as homophobic and have your life ruined.

Clearly he is in the wrong, you can't have reglious freedom on Australia unless you are a Muslim. *see Waleed Ali - the project, Yassmin Midhat Abdel-Magied and how they remain employed dispute sticking Thier foots in Thier mouths. To be clear, I don't agree with his posts content, but I will fight for his right to say it without getting fired. *I would do it for Muslims to, as long as it doesn't break accepted free speech rules. I am just pointing out the hypocrisy.

Apparently everything else he covered is fine but when he mentions the gays, all hell breaks loose. Australia makes its descent into Clown World even more apparent. Honk Honk!

Being fired for making an accurate post. "Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men  nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.” Revelations 21:8

PC culture doesn't care about merit. That said. If his contract had clauses about "don't say something to this effect" and he signed it. Not the companies fault for terminating him.
