Fo­lau set up by me­dia and po­lit­i­cally cor­rect

The Morning Bulletin - - OPINION -

CHRIS­TIAN­ITY is un­der threat in Aus­tralia, once con­sid­ered a Chris­tian coun­try, by mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism, po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness and the do-good­ers who in­sist we of­fend no-one, es­pe­cially mi­nori­ties of re­cent im­mi­gra­tion sta­tus, now liv­ing among us and en­joy­ing the priv­i­leges of our colo­nial her­itage.

What hap­pened to “free speech” and “tol­er­ance” of all faiths and races, in­clud­ing those who pro­fess the Chris­tian faith?

Ap­par­ently you can be an im­mi­grant and fail to stand in a court for our ju­di­ciary and dis­re­spect our laws and na­tional icons, yet a foot­baller is vil­i­fied by the me­dia for sim­ply ex­press­ing his be­liefs and faith to a ques­tion posed to trap him.

It put him in a dif­fi­cult and vul­ner­a­ble po­si­tion: be­tween a rock and a hard place. We al­low all to ex­press

their faith with­out threat and crit­i­cism, if we are truly a democ­racy.

Foot­baller Is­rael Fo­lau was set up, to up­set the po­lit­i­cally cor­rect and those who have the po­lit­i­cal and me­dia power to in­flu­ence pub­lic opin­ion in this coun­try.

When asked about where “gays” spend “Eter­nity”, he sim­ply ex­pressed what all Chris­tians be­lieve is in the Word of God.

Sun­day’s May 13, ABC pro­gram, In­sid­ers, call him a bigot. The boy was raised in a Chris­tian home. He ex­presses his faith, as any non-Chris­tian for­eigner would when re­fus­ing to sing the Na­tional An­them wear­ing his/her reli­gious garb, or not re­spect­ing the “South­ern Cross” or any An­zac cer­e­mony, with­out so much as rais­ing an eye­brow. What’s good for the goose is good for the gan­der!

Chris­tian­ity is in­deed un­der threat, the more we suc­cumb to im­mi­gra­tion

from non-Chris­tian coun­tries, mod­i­fy­ing and re­ject­ing the fruits of 200+ years of Chris­tian faith and val­ues, underpinned by our Ju­daeo-Chris­tian sys­tems of gov­ern­ment and law.

We are aban­don­ing our pi­o­neer­ing val­ues for a mish­mash of po­lit­i­cal cor­rect­ness, rel­a­tive to the chang­ing times.
