Folau, ball tampering, protection for religious belief : Comments

By Graham Young, published 11/4/2018

It is about religious belief, honesty, integrity, the corruption of sport by commerce, the corruption of commerce by personal interest, and the duty of individuals to stay true to their own moral code, even against overwhelming pressure.

*...gay people were destined for hell ďunless they repent of their sins and turn to GodĒ...*

This was a standard position in society until quite recently.

Let's gat back there!

" Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor. 6:9-11)"

Wasn't Alan Jocye in charge when Qantas became partners with Emirates. The hyprocrisy of the god deniers knows no bounds. I suppose that's why they are happy to sexualise and indoctinate young kids in the name of 'safe' schools. What a spiteful nasty lot they are.

Everyone has a right to a view, but not their own facts! And wherever one looks there at folks blindly refusing to see. XXX Why, because they are brainwashed and can't accept their alternative reality could be wrong. And the truth they espouse says any normal heterosexual that knowingly and willingly enters into a homosexual activity or relationship, has a case to answer. XXX However, no book condemns someone born that way. Nor can we expect of them something impossible for us, celibacy. Or a loveless life for the term of their natural life! XXX The brainwashed can't be cured of their particular affliction and given that's so, have fought wars over erroneous belief! Where millions of innocent lives were the "acceptable" collateral damage. XXX Richard Bramston tells a story, where he gave a highly placed flat earth society official a free space flight. When they landed Richard expected the individual not to reject that which he saw with his own eyes? Only to be confounded by the following observation. The graphics and special effects were very realistic and should prove popular. XXX Folau, who I regard highly as a sportsman and a very fair minded, play the ball not the man, player, might do well to google, Alan sanders geneticist. If only to see some hard scientific evidence that his views are fundamentally flawed and inherently wrong! XXX Even so, I don't expect him, #1/ to look at the hard medical EVIDENCE and #2/ or accept the EVIDENCE. However, if he does, will simply reject it in favour of his rusted on, religious brainwashing!? XXX Alan B.

Shades of 1984. We are now expected to change our beliefs to suit whatever agenda happens to be dominant at present.
Itís not just people of religious beliefs who donít accept homosexual behaviour, many people have that same belief based on biological grounds. In fact, taking into account the whole population of the world, more people would be against homosexuality than in favour of it. And who gives anyone the right to control our personal beliefs?
I saw an article where someone is now suggesting sex dolls should have the right to say no. Yes, seriously. The rights of robots are now being discussed. So, what happens if some other minority group gains traction and demands our promotion of an activity we canít personally accept? For instance, supporters of beastiality, of which there are many.
Where do we draw the line and demand that all peopleís personal beliefs are equally valid as long as we donít try and force them onto other people?

Good move Graham, let's get this "SSM" issue back where it belongs! XXX Front and centre in the front page headlines just so we can further incense the mum and dad electors over just how bigoted and destructively divisive some of their preferred conservative candidates are! XXX If only to convince them, the only way to resolve this cruelly regurgitated SSM issue is to put any candidate who rejects the majority view exposed in the "postal survey" into the political wilderness and the dustbin of political history! XXX As for Folau and fellow travellers, poor ignorance personified fools, all one can say is, forgive them Father for they know not what they do! XXX Alan B.
