Thank you Folau - you've certainly helped the All Blacks (or AIG).

It was only a matter of time until the saddle on the moral high horse was full.

That's called taking advantage of a marketing opportunity by AIG.



I saw that pop up on facebook yesterday and... well, I cringed. Good message, target audience seems ideal... but


well.
Sigh.


As soon as I saw the slow-mo footage I retched a little. This will all be fine until someone in NZ Rugby does something stupid like snecky toilet actions, slapping their wife around or seal clubbing and then they'll pull back a bit.


That doesn’t contradict “diversity”, though.

In fact, how dare you kink-shame Aaron. And Hore, allegedly

I don’t remember so many of our bros taking an active interest in this when it was Pocock trying to stamp out homophobia in the game, and the offender was a Saffer.


Pocock should have worn rainbow laces.

I’m sure he’s having a wry smile about all the sudden concern. Really to hope it’s no fleeting thing though.

It’s almost as though Potgieter apologised, was sanctioned, attempted to educate himself, and the issue was entirely resolved immediately.

It’s also possible this AIG campaign wasn’t filmed post-Folaugate and has clearly been developed over several months and has nothing to do with your pet bigot

Criticizing the players for praising god would be intolerance too. But intolerance isn’t any less damaging because your religion told you it’s wnat you should believe.

It's more damaging if you do business with people who literally kills people by virtue of their sexuality. Case in point Australia and Qantas doing business with Arab and Asian countries.

If you want to preach intolerance start there.

It isn't an unreasonable argument "if" Qantas was actually serious about intolerance why do they have deep relationships with these government owned companies?

Losing Folau would be the end of Aussie rugby. I would let him say what he wants and give him a massive sack of gold too.

Would wearing rainbow laces get in the way of the reason he blacks out his boots?

Maybe a rainbow headband would be safer?

Confirmed tonight. Was filmed late last year to coincide with the Tokyo Pride Parade.

Of course. That shit takes 6 months to create. Excellent timing though. Fuck Folau.

There are over a billion of them so it is important that we appeal to the Asians.

How exactly is that bullshit???

Alot of people are claiming that Folau is responsible for what he says based on his Public reputation. All I'm doing is pointing out the hypocrisy and double standard. You calling it bullshit just pretty much proves the point. Well done!

Oh I see, you really are just all over the place. As you were.

Ah I see. So it's intolerance if someone who is well known for his religious belief to answer a question quoting his religious teaching yet when pointing out the same with companies and countries doing exactly the same by doing business with companies and countries known for far more extreme views, it becomes a dismissal all over the place view. Yet again proving my point about hypocrisy and double standard. Carry on with your twisted biased viewpoint. You're lucky you have your echo chamber in here encouraging that sort of views.

I'm not fussed about anyone else OBreeze, everytime you quote me you bring up something completely different that has nothing to do with what I wrote. I didn't even say anything about suicide I was just commenting in what direction those comments were going and that they weren't blaming him directly but certainly pointing out that his views are on the wrong side of a bigger problem.

I dismiss your post as having nothing to do with mine, it just makes no sense in this conversation. I've never mentioned Qantas or come close to defending them yet this seems to be your big argument finale. :?

Ok fair point but do you not think that perhaps you should be fussed about companies like Qantas who continue to do business with companies and countries that have views that are on the wrong side of a bigger problem.

Surely that would send a far stronger message than one person who plays a sport that's not even number one in Australia.

Bogut: Most people offended by Folau post 'don’t believe in God anyway'

Dare we ask what Bogut thinks about the issue, which has divided opinion?
“I think what he said was very controversial but I am all for his right to say that — he has to deal with the consequences,” Bogut said. “It’s tough because I’m not overly religious but he’s basically quoting the Bible. It’s a tough one now. That’s his religion so you have to respect his ideas and what he lives by.

“What I struggle with is that if you’re going to criticise him you better make sure your house is in order. What Israel said I don’t condone but let’s be honest: from that community, most people in the community who were offended don’t believe in God anyway, so who gives a shit? God’s fictitious [to them] and someone who is make-believe, so why is it so offensive to anyone? Get on with it. He’s not saying he wants to kill you. He’s saying that’s his belief. But he’s got to deal with the consequences from it.”

You don't have to actually believe in hell to understand that Folau and his religion are judging and condemning people just for being gay.

Bogut: Most people offended by Folau post 'don’t believe in God anyway'

Dare we ask what Bogut thinks about the issue, which has divided opinion?
“I think what he said was very controversial but I am all for his right to say that — he has to deal with the consequences,” Bogut said. “It’s tough because I’m not overly religious but he’s basically quoting the Bible. It’s a tough one now. That’s his religion so you have to respect his ideas and what he lives by.

“What I struggle with is that if you’re going to criticise him you better make sure your house is in order. What Israel said I don’t condone but let’s be honest: from that community, most people in the community who were offended don’t believe in God anyway, so who gives a shit? God’s fictitious [to them] and someone who is make-believe, so why is it so offensive to anyone? Get on with it. He’s not saying he wants to kill you. He’s saying that’s his belief. But he’s got to deal with the consequences from it.”

You don't have to actually believe in hell to understand that Folau and his religion are judging and condemning people just for being gay.

To be fair, religion judges people for more than just homosexuality.

It's scary to think that aside from the billions of people who live in say, SE Asia alone that there's still this much stupid in the world.
