The Australian Christian Lobby has set up a new donation page for Folau. https://www.acl.org.au/donate_izzy

Folau's original page on gofundme raised about 750k in 4 days. His new page will surpass that amount within 12 hours of being online (currently 710k). Donate if you can!

Corrine Barraclough at News.com.au is not holding back...

‘Pouring petrol on the flames’: Dark consequence of shutting down Israel Folau’s GoFundMe
https://www.news.com.au/sport/sports-lif...ARA#.ptmcg

Quote:Anyone who had any doubt in their mind that freedom of speech is under threat in Australia must now reconsider.

Sacked Wallaby Israel Folau’s online campaign to raise money for his legal fight against Rugby Australia was removed on Monday morning.

And with that, the voices of 7000 donors were silenced....

...“We are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity,” GoFundMe’s Australian regional director Nicola Britton said.


So, quite simply Folau’s page was shut down because the rainbow LGBTIQ+ activists have an excessive amount of power in our society.

“While we welcome GoFundMe’s engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion,” Ms Britton added.

Let’s be really clear about something, which has been lost in this heated discussion. To attempt to assert that Folau’s posts were homophobic is simply disingenuous. His post read, “WARNING: Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolaters, HELL AWAITS YOU. Repent! Only Jesus Saves.”

There are eight categories listed there. Many of us would tick at least one, if not several of those categories.

The rainbow LGBTIQ+ category has been singled out because that’s got the most vocal activists and currently carries the most corporate clout.

Is this the correct way for democracy to run? Are we happy to become slaves to those with the loudest voices?

Like a lot of people she still seems to believe that the fag pride movement is a grass-roots phenomenon despite the fact that these freaks can't even manage their own lives 99% of the time.

It's a bridge too far for most people to believe that something more sinister is pushing the movement because that would involve naming who and asking why.

^ At least they're pushing back, it's a start.

Also, ACL donation page now ahead of the original GoFundMe at nearly $780k. Donated.

Edit: Now at just under $820k. The Australian Christian Lobby will have comfortably raised a million bucks by nightfall. A good day at the office for them.

After all the gleeful gloating in the media after the go fund me page was taken down, this makes me giddy with happiness. I have no doubt that the 3 million mark will be reached this time, whereas it would have been a big ask in the original page.

I only donated $20 on the go fund me page - I just donated $100 to this new page. Judging by the response, I'm not the only one who is pissed and even more resolved to support this cause. By pushing to get the go fund me page banned, they have inadvertently increased the chance that 3 million will be reached, and by extension the chance that this will be successfully challenged in court. Take that mother fuckers.

I'm learning to be more cautious on my optimism and not tether my hopes to earthly people and institutions but I hope that this is the watershed moment it feels like.

This feels like Australia's Trump versus Hillary and the left all over again. I hope Folau wins so I can salt mine the internet like it's 2016.

The Jesuits used to say "give me the child for the first 7 years, and I will give you the man".

Now, it seems like it was mostly Mormons and Wesleyans that converted the Tongans...

But anyway, the phrase is apt.

Some not-so-ancient missionaries built up a force on Tonga, and now it's made its way to Australia, and the people would just love a man to get behind.

I used to look down on missionary work, and in our church growing up we had the option of choosing where our tithe was spent, and I always opted out of missionary funding. But now it seems like the past missionaries were planting Plan B defense weaponry amongst the far reaches, just in case the homespun Plan A failed...

This reminds me of the Ruben Hurricane Carter story. I hope Folau similarly wins in court.

Someone should do a song like Bob Dylan did.

"This is the story of the hurricane. The man the ass bandits came to blame".

Elton St John.

"Divisions between religious leaders" means "Rabbi Shlomo says no."

Something I've said for a while is that eventually we're going to run out of Roman letters and we'll have to start using kanji with the new genders/sexual identities that are popping up.

Folau's fundraiser is past 1.5 million. The anti-Folau one on GoFundMe is less then 10k. lollol

A charity watchdog organization has been asked to investigate the Christian lobby fundraiser for Folau.
they won’t be happy until they nail this outspoken Christian to the cross and crucify him.

Stupid people.

If they shut it down again it becomes a game to get him $3m and will happen one way or another.

Comments on that story of watchdog trying to shut them down:
"YES!" "GOOD!" "THANK YOU!"

This is the intellectual depth of the left.

They're like children. They won't stop till they get what they want.
