Israel Folau’s legal fundraiser reborn after Australian Christian Lobby launches new legal appeal

Israel Folau’s legal fundraiser reborn after Australian Christian Lobby launches new legal appeal, by Deborah Cornwall.

The Australian Christian Lobby has launched a new fundraising website for Israel Folau after GoFundMe banned the Christian rugby star using the crowdfunding platform to fund his legal battle with Rugby Australia.

Folau launched his GoFundMe appeal for $3 million on Friday and had raised more than $750,000 within four days. But the fundraising platform pulled the campaign because it violated their terms of service and announced it would refund all donations. …

Unacceptable

GoFundMe discriminates against Christians. How trendy!

Despite dumping Folau’s efforts­, a GoFundMe campaign in Britain titled “Israel Folau’s intolerance will not be tolerated’’ was still running and had raised about £8500 ($15,600) last night.

Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young used GoFundMe to raise money for legal costs in her def­am­ation battle against then senat­or David Leyonhjelm after he told her to “stop shagging men”. …

GoFundMe pages yesterday were raising funds for myriad­ ­activities, including allowing a man to migrate to Australia to be with his male partner and gender reassignment surgeries including for a 38-year-old nursing assistant­ who was attempting to raise $17,000 for vocal feminis­ation surgery, cheek implants and a lip lift. …

Other attacks on Israel:

A spokesman for Folau … said Folau’s personal website had already been the target of a sustained cyber attack, forcing the website to be shut down on Friday for 12 hours. His wife, Maria, had also been “vilified” for supporting her husband.

Logically, if Israel Folau can be banished for quoting the bible, then the bible can also be banished. And Christians.

“Odd” that Islam and the Koran is defended from criticism by lefties. Here are some fundamentalist Muslims throwing a gay man to his death of a roof a couple of years ago:

UPDATE:

A second fundraising campaign for Israel Folau has already amassed more than $650,000 in donations, less than 24 hours after it was launched by the Australian Christian Lobby. …

By 11.30am, $550,000 had been donated via the link on the ACL site — with the group also promising to tip in $100,000 of their own money.

UPDATE: Maria Folau cleared of breach amid pressure from ANZ, by Eric George.

Netball New Zealand has said that Silver Fern Maria Folau has not breached any of the team’s policies, after one of the team’s major sponsors raised concerns about her support for husband Israel Folau’s crowd-funding campaign.

A spokesman for ANZ, which sponsors both the Silver Ferns and New Zealand’s netball league, told stuff.co.nz that the bank does not support “the views of Silver Fern Maria Folau”. The spokesman added that these concerns have been expressed to Netball NZ, and that the company will continue to support the sport.

Maria Folau reposting Israel’s GoFundMe page doesn’t breach netball rules, by Eric George.

Former Diamonds captain Liz Ellis has labelled Netball South Australia’s response to Maria Folau’s support of her husband’s crowdfunding campaign “not good enough” in a tweet that quickly went viral.

“There is no room for homophobia in our game. Anyone who is seen to support or endorse homophobia is not welcome. As much as I love watching Maria Folau play netball I do not want my sport endorsing the views of her husband,” Ellis said.

Competitive virtue signalling leftists versus one of the two  strongest religions in the world. Should be interesting. Leftist Comrade Stalin thought he was onto a winner at one stage, sneering “How may divisions does the Pope have?”. How did that work out?

Looking forward to the mandated PC version of the bible, and burning the old bibles. Hey, just like in China, comrades!
