Fo­lau dis­crim­i­na­tion

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - YOUR SAY -

RUGBY Aus­tralia is dis­crim­i­nat­ing against player Is­rael Fo­lau.

Australian Rugby League Com­mis­sion chair­man Peter Beat­tie is dis­crim­i­nat­ing against Fo­lau.

Both are deny­ing him the opportunit­y to earn his liv­ing from foot­ball.

Is it be­cause Fo­lau is in a form slump?

No, he’s still one of the best.

Is it be­cause of some moral fail­ing that has brought the game into dis­re­pute?

No, his record is im­pec­ca­ble.

Fo­lau is be­ing dis­crim­i­nated against be­cause he is a Chris­tian.

If they deny that, then I be­lieve An­thony Mun­dine must be right: Fo­lau is a vic­tim of racism.

All Pa­cific Is­lan­ders are Chris­tian. It’s what they are.

There­fore, Fo­lau is be­ing dis­crim­i­nated against be­cause of what he is: a Pa­cific Is­lan­der.
