Quote:But in the latest twist in this saga, the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission (ACNC) has confirmed that it has: "received multiple requests to comment on the Australian Christian Lobby’s decision to support Israel Folau’s fundraising for legal costs".

The ACL is a registered charity with the ACNC and is subject to its reporting and governance rules. If raising funds to support Folau’s legal action falls outside the ACL’s charitable purpose, it could risk losing its status as a registered charity – and all the benefits that come with that.

Someone in the thread said they shouldn't be worried about Israel's comments since they don't believe in hell. Similarly, they shouldn't worry about a 3 million dollar legal defence fund since surely he will lose. In fact, they should relish the possibility of a court case since it will set a legal precedent for future cases.

It may slow down, yet he could be at 3 mil by next week. ATM - $2,169,115.00.

RE: Australia's highest paid rugby player refuses to retract "homophobic" statement
The fundraiser has chosen to pause donations:

"Your overwhelming support means that Israel Folau has raised enough money for now.

More than $2 Million has been raised from over 20,000 donors in just two days.

ACL, Izzy, and everyone involved is humbled and grateful.

We are hitting the pause button.

But if the case drags on and Israel needs more support, we will reopen this campaign.

For now, we are thrilled that Izzy is not only supported, but a great movement of quiet Australians have found their voice. This cannot be ignored.

If you would like to pledge your support below please do and we will be in touch when the need arises."

Good move stopping. Shows they aren't greedy. 2.2 mill should cover legal feels for quite a while.

Not sure how it will go in court though. Whether it is breach of contract or not, they can always just say he "discriminated" against people.

I don't like it. Maybe they're just not as much into shitlording as I am.

The $3m target was within easy reach.

I guess they figured the point had been proven, and not that it was (((shut down))). Right?

RE: Australia's highest paid rugby player refuses to retract "homophobic" statement
Big mistake.

Pausing the donation drive for Folau specifically is fine, but the ACL should immediately launch a general fund, administered by super-anal, by-the-books lawyers with trust/fiduciary duties, to help these cases in the future.

Most people have no idea who the ACL are day-to-day so this is their chance to build a warchest.

It is less than two years since gay marriage was legalized and already people like Folau are in the firing line. It is going to get worse and the ACL should be capitalizing on things NOW.

Folau has had massive balls in standing up for himself and his beliefs so far, but his decision to not earmark his original GoFundMe page for lawyer fees looked really bad.

22 million might be enough for now, but the 3 million mark was symbolic. I was looking forward to the outraged media reports, which would have been only a day away. Should have kept going.

He was being attacked in social media circles for raising more money than sick children and drought stricken farmers as if he was somehow stealing their money. The simpleton NPC public received the outrage signal from their media mainframe and acted accordingly to their programming.

Why didn't Israel aim for 6 million? They'd have made a killing.

Israel, 6 million, and killing all in the same sentence? Oh boy, you've done it now...

RE: Australia's highest paid rugby player refuses to retract "homophobic" statement
Might have been mentioned before. Just found out about this.

Alan Joyce the CEO and his "banned words".

It was Rugby Australia CEO Raelene Castle (lesbian feminist) and Alan Joyce, Gay Qantas CEO, who got together and in a couple of hours decided Izzy's fate.

Qantas are the Wallabies' chief sponsor.

Aside from hating Izzy for publicly stating that he would vote against gay marriage in a national referendum he also signed off on banning 'words' from use in Qantas professional spaces.

https://www.stthomasaquinasversusnasa.co...joyce.html

Qantas is facing criticism over a leaked list of “banned words” that have been sent to airline staff in an information package.
The info package was sent out by People and Culture group executive Lesley Grand and contains “gender inapropriate terms.”

News Ltd says that in a note to staff, “Ms Grant says she wants to foster an environment where ‘everyone feels comfortable’ and to uphold Qantas’ history of ‘support of indigenous issues, gender parity in business and marriage equality.’”

Some terms on the list include,

wife,
husband,
mum and dad.


Instead it is suggested staff use the terms spouse, partner and parent.

News Ltd reports the info pack says, “Always using the terms ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ can reinforce the idea that people are always in heterosexual relationships. In the same way, always referring to ‘mum and dad’ can make many families feel excluded — both same-sex couples and single-parent families.”

Other words staff should avoid include, guys, love, honey and darling.

Staff should also “minimise manteruptions” – men interupting women while they speak."

Gentleman.

UP to you.

03:42 on the video. Pause it.





The image is of Israel Folau tearful whilst preaching in Church.

The SJW whose channel it is puts up text next to him saying "Fuck Israel Folau and his Fake Tears".

He's a gay millennial who says earlier in the video that Folau's religious views are "centuries out of date".

Up to you. If you don't like 'call out culture' then fair enough...

Otherwise I would highly recommend going on youtube and reporting/flagging the Racism, Bullying, Hate-Speech present in this homosexual leftie's video.

POC from marginalised community ridiculed at place of worship.

The likes of Sargon de-monetised and shadow banned.

Maybe its time for these all-powerful SJWs to get a taste of their own medicine.

EDIT: SJW is currently on his holidays in Japan watching the Rugby World Cup that Folau was banned from. Bragging about how much money he's getting from youTube videos and Patreon sponsorship.

Jewtube isn't going to penalize him. You have to go to his video just to flag it I'm guessing, so it's a win for him and a great big FU from Jewtube. You cannot win playing in the enemy's house by the enemy's rules with the enemy acting as referee.

God demands of Man responsibility. God demands of Woman vulnerability. These are their curse and blessing alike. Libertianism is to Man as Feminism is to Woman.

RE: Australia's highest paid rugby player refuses to retract "homophobic" statement
It's interesting seeing the reaction from abroad, compared to here in Aus. Even the blue pilled punters cant stand Raelaen Castle. Most people are sick of hearing about LGBT crap and frankly see what Israel said as a breath of fresh air, as in at least it's traditional at it's core. Its the sort of issue that only people who are already on on side regardless, get excited about.

I think Folau dodged a bullet.

The team that failed to stand by him was humiliated today, 40-16 to England.

This is just weeks after their clownish loss against Wales.

They are out of the World Cup, and back to doing Breast Cancer photo ops or something.
