Scrum down

It comes as something of a pleasant surprise that an Australian rugby player should quote from the Letter to the Romans in a tweet; but that is what Israel Folau did. As a result he is set to have his contract terminated for “unacceptable” homophobic and transphobic comments.

Questions need to be asked. Are the works of the Apostle himself now deemed “unacceptable” in Australia? And does acceptance of them – for example reading Romans chapter one aloud in church –  put Australians’ jobs at risk? Or is the offence merely to post such opinions on social media? We need to be told.
