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.
