The sacking of Israel Folau - guilty of a foul or victim of religious censorship? Laurence Wilkinson and Nick Heath
International sporting star Israel Folau was sacked by Rugby Australia after sharing an image on his Instagram and Twitter that read: ‘Warning - Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolators. Hell Awaits You. Repent! Only Jesus Saves’. Folau is now pursuing legal action.
Laurence Wilkinson of ADF International and Nick Heath of Sports Media LGBT debate whether Folau deserved to be sacked or has been unfairly punished for expressing his Christian beliefs.
