I see in the Mason Ho Down video you feature Koby Abberton, a shoplifter and a thug.
When will you stop supporting people who behave badly?

We're not ‘supporting’ anyone, we just ran a video on Mason, produced by a third party and hosted on another website.

I wouldn't say those comments represent the whole forum..You have to give the guy some , no,,actually a fair bit of respect for charging big waves , and I didn't really care about the gofundme page ,or him , until I saw on the video of him basically asking for recompense { meaning.. give money or its equivalent in return for something and also implies the discharge of an obligation incurred} for his good deeds and so called acts of redemption. Asking for help is one thing, guilt tripping people you claim to have helped into forking out is another.

Seems like he's not real good at reading the fine print.....expect new lawsuit against GoFundMe? The only winners are the lawyers.

From their GoFundMe page -Terms and Conditions,

"Without limiting the foregoing, you agree not to use the Services to:

I'm surprised they took so long to take it down.

Pretty arrogant of him I thought. He is in a fight that he chose because he broke the rules and terms of his own contract that he signed..........go figure..........then he is asking the public to fund $3M lawsuit............. when he has a real estate portfolio of over $6.5M.........fuck knows what other investments he owns. Great footballer, but fuck me he's off with the fairies in regards to the real world.

“I totally understand everyone else’s view. They are obviously different to mine and I respect that but what I don’t want to do is compromise what I believe in,” Folau said.

“I’m always going to follow that even though probably a lot of people won’t agree with that.

“That’s fine I’ll still respect them and love everyone else for who they are.”

.......but you're still going to burn in hell you heathen sinners!

Ive had amazing and personal experiences with Jesus the Christ. Many years ago I met this guy Ian also and his story is a really good one..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yg4188Ii-fg...worth the watch..He is one of many thousands who have had these experiences. Remember the universe is a big place and we are all passing through the earth at different stages of development. God is very loving and patient and His natural world special to Him. He has laws of nature and the environment that he is very serious about and yet we continually throw them back in His face with reckless abandon. Israels presentation of the first chapter of Romans is a bit boof heady. The warnings are clear but a good dad steers his children in the right direction purely through love, because He knows whats best for them.

I wonder if they have considered that it cuts both ways. If Christian sects want to be free of work related constraints on their ability to demean and insult others on the basis of their sexuality that also opens the door for others to demean and insult them for their homophobia........ if it is done in the name of another religion. Colanders on the head people, it's time to join the Pastafarians and worship the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the least demanding God ever!

here we go again , judging a religion by the action of an individual , same as me saying pedophilia is a whiteman's disease .....because that is my personal experience and what I choose to read in regards to "pedophilia is a whitemans disease,".......now the outrage begins on my statement......just like you Lozza , saying Jesus was gay ...based on conjecture and a twisted mind.
Israel quotes the bible from his church , and "the boys" get their tits in a tangle , the media goes after him , he gets sacked ...and here we are arguing who is right or wrong .....?

Laurie McGinness commented Tuesday, 25 Jun 2019 at 1:28pm

brutus, I specified Christian "sects" to distinguish those who believe similar things to Folau from others with more genuinely Christian beliefs. If that is not enough for you, then what do you want? All religions free from any criticism and mockery? Sounds a lot like the culture under which paedophilia flourished. I have no desire to restrict Folau"s ability to express his opinions no matter how reprehensible they may be. I think he has a reasonable case against Rugby Australia but if people stick their heads up to insult and denigrate others on the basis of their sexuality then they are fair game for mockery and I will always be happy to deliver it.

Actually I did not say Jesus was gay, I listed some evidence in that direction to draw attention to the absurdity of Folau's beliefs. ......... and what if he was gaY? Would that change anything except in the eyes of homophobes? The Sermon On The Mount? Out the window!

Tricky distinction to make, Laurie (BB?), given that Jesus himself so often quoted or paraphrased tracts of (what we now call) the old testament.

Perhaps you mean those christians who read the old testament in the context of the new?

So you are saying that Israels beliefs come from a sect ...I think that it is basic Christian philosophy , no abortions , no gay marriage.....
We have our beliefs , you have yours , to continually denigrate and mock Christian beliefs , just makes you another hypocrite while asking for your opinions to be considered by the 50% of Australians who are Christians.........unless of course your God is Money and Power, which is still a religion , just a superficial one!
As for your comments on Jesus , could you maybe comment on a bloke who married an 8 year old and consecrated the marriage before she was 10 ??
Lozza and you wonder why Labor lost the election .....50% is a big chunk of OZ!

On the whole Folau social media debacle, I think the following quote gives an interesting perspective:
“I’ve always said that I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. I don’t respect that at all. If you believe that there’s a heaven and a hell, and people could be going to hell or not getting eternal life, and you think that it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward—and atheists who think people shouldn’t proselytize and who say just leave me along and keep your religion to yourself—how much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate somebody to believe everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?

“I mean, if I believed, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that a truck was coming at you, and you didn’t believe that truck was bearing down on you, there is a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.”
- Penn Jillette

Must say that I don't agree with the way Folau communicated his message, and definitely don't agree with the crowfunding thing.

No complaints about Jesus but his followers have not been doing a great job. The Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, oh yeh and it was decent Christians who created colonies here, there and everywhere which destroyed so many indigenous cultures.
In terms of genuine Christianity I seem to remember that when a woman was caught in adultery and about to be stoned to death Jesus said "Let him who is without sin cast the first stone." Well Folauu and his ilk throw plenty of stones and I am damn sure they are not without sin. End. I have said my bit, believe what you like I reserve the right to mock the Folaus of this world and will continue to do so whenever they stick their arrogant heads up.
