I hope we're bringing in Olding and Jackson too, as well as offering Ashley Johnson a contract after his likely impending suspension is completed. Might as well bring in Tomás Lavanini as well, he hasn't done anything stupid off the pitch, but we need someone to concede tonnes of penalties on it.

No. Please NO!

He is very entitled to his beliefs but publicly expressing them as it seems he has to do will not help Sale publicly nor with any major sponsor.

He can express hisi Christainity and religion without having to single out people. Unfortunately he seems to HAVE to focus on LGBT people. He doesn't mention the biblical passages about tattoos, nor adultery, nor divorce much.

He is the DUP of rugby and that is a mindset I hoped I had left 20 years ago.

Says it better than I ever could:

The West Wing.

President Josiah Bartlet: Good. I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination.

Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I don't say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.

President Josiah Bartlet: Yes, it does. Leviticus.

Dr. Jenna Jacobs: 18:22.

President Josiah Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I had you here. I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important 'cause we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: Touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: While you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits.

Way O/T

Specifically for the hyprocite :

Leviticus 19:28, which says,”You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor tattoo any marks on you: I am the Lord."

Just a few pages away from the man lying with man passage he uses as proof that being gay is sinful.

And let's not forget the many biblical passages that the DUP chose to ignore, like:

Timothy 2:11-15
A woman must quietly receive instruction with entire submissiveness. But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet. For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve

I am sorry because I do respect people with religious beliefs, but I hate with a passion people who twist the text to their own agenda.

So yes, he is the DUP of rugby!

I've heard it said that he is entitled to his views, perhaps he is but he isn't entitled to project them on anyone else.
I've known a few Evangelical "Christians" and they do believe they have a religious duty to spread their viewpoint - "witnessing" I believe it is called.

Religion doesn't provide you with an excuse for bigotry, and let's be clear that Israel Folau is a bigot.

He would be exactly the PR disaster that the media would love, especially coming on the heels of the Solomona banning (no matter that it was a strange case).

Jeez. Wasn't it Evelyn Beatrice hall who said I don't agree with what you have to say but I'll defend to death your right to say it???

He has an opinion linked to his faith. Not something I agree with (or believe to be true). However he believes all homosexual acts are a sin. He also believes in repenting your sins is the gateway to heaven. He also (probably) believes he/ we all are sinners and will have to repent our sins (including heterosexuals and probably tattoos!) before we allowed into heaven. I am an avowed atheist and even I know that.

His (ignorant) views are almost matched by the ignorant politically correct waffle I have read during this whole saga. He is entitled to his views which are in line with his religious beliefs which are, even as an aethist, as important to me to allow in society which allows equality based on gender, race, age or sexuality. However the UK is also a secular society and, for those with strong religious beliefs, last time I looked homosexuality was (wrongly in my opinion) a sin. What he said wasn't illegal. Perhaps those criticising folau might want to turn their attention to the teachers of such views rather than the pupils?

Personally no issue with us signing folau. I also hope he has a few nights out in the village and living in Manchester I hope might change his views to something I feel more comfortable with. Either way criticise religions for these views and what they teach, not those which are taught these and believe them to be true.

Folau is indeed welcome to hold whatever unpleasant views he wishes.
As soon as he puts them into the public domain he opens himself up to criticism for those views.
Hiding behind "God said it, not me" is intellectual cowardice IMO & should be challenged at every opportunity.
Freedom OF Religion also encompasses Freedom FROM Religion, & his right to a particular view stops where those views affect other people.
He's a high profile sportsperson & therefore has the opportunity to affect others.

We as members of the public are also free to express our views upon his views, and also to mention our disdain for them & to say how much we dislike the idea of him playing for SS.

A) he hasn't said others can hold different views. He answered a question which he answered honestly based on the beliefs he holds. He hasn't hid behind his religion, he answered a question based on his religious views.

cool smileyI completely agree. However you can disagree with someone's views and try and understand why he holds those views (and address those). Or we can stone him to death from the higher plain of social media. It seems the later is more en vogue.

C) read the first line of my post. Of course you can express an opinion. So can Folau. If the club sign him then you and others can "put up or shut up". However I do wonder whether the noise of some drowns out the silence of others. That seems par for the course in trial by social media currently in a lot of instances.

D)I still find it amazing that we can spend time attacking an individual high profile person yet fail to address the source of those views. Folaus spiritual education is the root of the issue.

Last post on the subject from me now.

That's v harsh on Harrison - I agree we need back up at loosehead but I wouldn't want to replace him.

I'd prefer to spend money on centres ( both) fullback, hooker in place of Jonesy who hasn't shown his previous form this season, and a back up fly half.

Going back to the original premise, whilst not a Christian, I clearly remember it being taught in schools and being encouraged to go to Church. As Folau is merely doing as he was told, using the bible as his guide, as educated in government schools, and churches in every town, I cant see why he is in the wrong. I dont agree with him, nor do I agree with most religions, but I understand why he would have that believe. If you have a problem with his belief, your anger should be that he is educated to believe in the bible, not that he has read it and believes it.

What my thoughts are on Olding and Jackson are irrelevant as they were tried in a court of law and found not guilty. I dont want "sponsors" deciding what is right or wrong for sports clubs, as they have no position to be my moral arbiter. If you are upset that Olding & Jackson are not in prison for what they did, campaign to your MP, change the law.

I said I wouldnt post again but breaking my commitment. Such a sin.

To answer the question for some yes, for others not so much. he didn't actually say all homosexuals would go to hell, he said if they didn't repent their sins they would. the issue is the fact he believes homosexuality is a sin. However (equally) I am sure there a few things I have done in my life he would consider to be a sin. last time I checked the catholic church still had homosexuality down as a sin which therefore requires you to repent before passing through those pearly gates.

I won't be agreeing with his views anytime soon but I can live in a society that tolerates different religions and different interpretations of those religions providing they are within the confines of the law of the land. Even if I dont agree with them or find individual views abhorrent providing they are legal (which they are).

What is good in today's society is he is now in the minority (however sizeable). Compare that to twenty/ thirty years ago when he probably wasn't. I hope and trust we will continue to see such progress. Perhaps the twitter mob, judge and jury can't live with that. He (and those who taught him such views) should be continued to be called out for his views but I don't see why he should persecuted for them.

Finally for those who beg to differ re the legal side here is the CPS prosecution guidelines for homophobic hate crime:

Perfectly good answer.

In the interests of diversity, would we also consider that to be a desirable response from someone whose views are more in keeping with current mores?

Are we saying that everyone is entitled to their views and beliefs, but only those compatible with the views of the current majority should be voiced?

As have the DUP, but they also consider people who drink alcohol, don't wear hats to Church and anyone who works, goes to a sporting event or watches a tv on a Sunday to be the same.

i have many friends (including an Anglican Bishop) who believe they are Christians. Most are very good people, but I only ever knew one who I though was a "Christain" in the what I thought the word to mean.

That was my 82 year old (late) aunt, who unlike many other family members, never judged, never made comment, always wished me and partner well and on her death bed made me promise to look after each other.

Her whole life had been the church, and I know she probably thought my relationship wrong, but she never once showed me or my partner anything but caring and love. The years I went to Sunday School lead me to think that was true Christain values.

People who like Folau, the DUP who selectively use biblical passages while ignoring others are hypociates serving their own agenda and not the Christain one of love and leaving God to judge.

As to what he should have said? He should have passed the question with "I am a Christian, but my beliefs are personal" just like we would expect a fundalmentist Muslim/Jew not to say he believed gay people should be thrown off a roof.

Just my opinion.

Myself, I couldn't care less about anyone’s sexual persuasion.

What I do care about is a world gone mad.
I cannot fly the flag of St George to embrace my patriotism because I will be deemed racist.
I cannot wear a rainbow badge without being thought of as gay/lesbian et al

Wow!

So you wouldn't care if some called Jason Robinson a F**king n***er. That would be "up to him how he deals with it"

Or Nigel Owens should just put up with being called a "f**king f*g"" and deal with it.

I guess both those can deal with but what about the 14/15 year old kids who get called it? Can they deal with it, or do take their life as too many actually do.

Why cannot you not fly St George's Flag,have you any personal examples or are you going on Daily Mail gossip?

Rainbow badges? Have you a reason you want to wear one or are you just offended? How many LGBT people so you know who wear a rainbow? (I know none, and I guess is know more than you)

Even if people did realise it was on support of LGBT rights why would you think it was a bad thing to wear it?

In the last few years I have had a pink ribbon (breast cancer and am definitely not a woman) a daffodil (definitely not Welsh) and a cross St George (Def not English) and been proud to wear them all.

Yoi are saying you would be sacred that people might think you were gay? Well who cares? If you are confident in your sexuality why would you care what others think? I don't! (People think I am straight)

As for surely it is what happens on the field that matters , nothing else - if that is your opinion then you must be happy with a peodophile?, Rapist. Murderer, pimp?, Muslim extremists? Racists?

All varieties of the same thing. Are racists bad but homophobes ok? Peodophiles ok but rapists bad?

I don't agree with FF but most of what you've said would be illegal activity Ulsterlad and dealt with by the law of the land. What Folau did, whilst morally questionable and offensive to many, was perfectly legal. The same applied to that other case.

For what it's worth I personally believe that instances like the Folau one are actually beneficial to society as a whole as it exposes religious ideologies for what I believe them to be.

I hope we're bringing in Olding and Jackson too, as well as offering Ashley Johnson a contract after his likely impending suspension is completed. Might as well bring in Tomás Lavanini as well, he hasn't done anything stupid off the pitch, but we need someone to concede tonnes of penalties on it.

Another league player for our consideration available from November. [www.bbc.com]

I can't see it to be honest, he's incredibly talented and would fit well into union IMO, but I think rebuilding his reputation in league will be his number one priority.

On the rugby league angle, though, surely we're at least having conversations with Kyle Eastmond's representatives? On paper, him and James would dovetail really well at centre.

Scrum machine replacement would be more fun

Check the bottom of your pots, for they may also be coloured black.

I’m presuming this is an irony+. How much were the Care Bears paying Ian Madigan in the Chamoionship?

It was irony aimed at Steve Diamond claiming we were ruining rugby by paying Piatau £1m. And there's as much truth in that amount as there is in Fisslers Folau prediction.
