Mark Latham roasts Burns/NSW Anti-Discrimination Board in parliament

Mark Latham roasts Burns/NSW Anti-Discrimination Board in parliament

Last week it finally happened.

Mark Latham stood up in the New South Wales parliament and became the first politician from that state to call out the obscene waste of taxpayers’ money that has been thrown away supporting serial litigant, Garry Burns.

You can watch his speech below:

No one knows for sure exactly how much has been spent by the New South Wales government to prop up Burns’ obsessive witch hunt.

But considering there have been hundreds of complaints, ‘investigations’ by the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board and hearings before the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, Local Court, Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court of Australia over the past 20 years it now surely runs into the multiple millions.

And that’s just to hold the hearings.

On top of that the New South Wales Attorney General has even intervened against me in multiple proceedings, wasting further money to directly support Burns.

Yet not a single, solitary finding has been made against me.

At least in the old days witch hunts would manage some sort of guilty verdict. This kangaroo court system is so farcical it can’t even conjure that up.

Unsurprisingly, Burns has reacted to Mark Latham’s speech with all the grace of a triggered old hag.

I’ve received numerous abusive emails including one just this morning which contained these words:

But Garry Burns is just like a good dose of herpes because he doesn’t go away or ever give up…

…There will always be minor league dills with domestic trimmings like Mark Latham in our parliament and we the sensible folk should deal with him like passing a motion ( bowel movement ) and just flush the chain and let the the poo poo disappear.

Classy.

The guy even likens himself to a sexually-transmitted disease. It’s not a bad description, to be honest.

This is the man the New South Wales Anti-Discrimination Board has wasted millions of dollars protecting. These are the words of the bloke who is the face of anti-discrimination law in Australia.

Why the political class and the vast majority of the media have allowed him to wage his obsessive, fanatical, abusive and vengeful campaign of terror for so long is one of the great mysteries of our times.

It will forever be a stain on the New South Wales justice system that the vast majority of vilification case law has been generated by Burns and his decade-long taunting of a legally-unrepresented and brain-damaged man from Newcastle (you can read about John Sunol here).

Burns will eventually be stopped.

But the real problem is the Anti-Discrimination Board and the Tribunal which have long-known about Burns’ abusive conduct and John Sunol’s disability and turned a blind eye to both.

This is where the true evil in this farce lies. It needs to be confronted and weeded out.

Please take the time to write to Mark Latham to thank him for his courage. And it would also help if you wrote to the New South Wales Attorney General and asked him why the Anti-Discrimination Board has not been sacked.

An open letter to Australia’s Catholic Bishops

An open letter to Australia’s Catholic Bishops

For anyone with eyes to see or ears to hear, the Plenary Council in Australia has become a scandalous disaster. We are watching a train wreck unfold in Australia.

On Monday the Final Report for the Plenary Council Phase 1: Listening and Dialogue was released by the National Centre for Pastoral Research.

This organisation reports directly to the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.

And chapter 16 of this report argues that the Catholic Church should ‘modernise’ to accept things such as contraception, homosexual marriage and euthanasia and even change the concept of sin.

Other large segments of the report are devoted to calls for female ordination.

And this document is written in the context that the calls have come directly from the ‘people of God’ who have been inspired by the ‘Spirit’ to answer the question: what do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?

It is clear that, as a collective, bishops are either allowing the Church in Australia to start on a path that will see it formally break off communion with Rome, or they have lost control of the Plenary Council process and we will end up, for all intents and purposes, in a mess that looks much the same.

We are faced with a disaster of calamitous proportions for the true faith in this nation.

I have sent the open letter below to every bishop and hundreds of priests. You might like to sign the petition below it in support – however due to technical limitations this will only be sent to the Secretary of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference and the Archbishops of Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

But, most importantly, it’s time to get on our knees, pull out our rosary beads and beg Our Lady Help of Christians for assistance…

AN OPEN LETTER TO AUSTRALIA’S CATHOLIC BISHOPS

Dear Australian Bishops

An open letter to Australia’s Catholic Bishops: The Plenary Council has become a scandal!

The release of the Final Report for the Plenary Council Phase 1: Listening and Dialogue dramatically makes clear two things: the bishops have lost control of the Plenary Council and the Catholic Church in Australia is in the midst of a full-blown revolutionary crisis.

This report gives credence to all manner of heretical, blasphemous and evil ideas, including:

  • Female ordination
  • An end to priestly celibacy
  • Communion for all
  • Contraception
  • Divorce
  • Euthanasia
  • Homosexuality

It is scandalous that this document has been released under the authority of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference via the National Centre for Pastoral Research. It not only fails to condemn the above and other evils but instead cloaks them with a veneer of legitimacy by claiming that they are Catholic answers to the question: what do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?

This document stands in stark contrast to Mirari Vos which condemned attacks on religious celibacy and liberty of conscience. There can be no doubt that in saner times the very documents of this Plenary Council would have been condemned and destroyed and the words of Pope Gregory XVI almost two centuries ago ring ever louder:

The Church has always taken action to destroy the plague of bad books. This was true even in apostolic times for we read that the apostles themselves burned a large number of books.

The Plenary Council process has now descended into a farcical and scandalous sham that, at best, will plunge the Catholic Church in Australia into a civil war for generations. At worst it will result in open and defiant schism, heresy and destruction of the Church morally, institutionally and financially.

That the Plenary Council process is now dangerously out of control of the bishops is plainly obvious.

The Plenary Council cannot change the doctrines of the Church, yet all the documents released to date are filled with revolutionary cries in relation to Church teaching on basic morality and attacks on the very nature of the priesthood, the holy sacrifice of the Mass and the sacraments. Consequently, the spirit of the Plenary Council is now one that revolts openly against apostolic authority and the laws of the Church.

The Plenary Council is harming the mission of the Church to save souls by sowing dissent, revolt and confusion by also aiding the great attacks on the family and the very nature of man that we are assailed with today.

Worse, while the Plenary Council documentation is filled with buzzwords and phrases like ‘discernment’ and ‘listen to the Spirit’, there has been no training or guidance given to Catholics on the basics of discernment, which is to recognize and perceive that not all inspirations come from God, but that the evil spirits are also active.

Thus the process of the Plenary Council has opened the Church to Satan himself and it is now clear that his diabolical and destructive suggestions are wreaking havoc.

The only benefit that comes from this latest report, albeit accidentally, is that it highlights the true and sorry state of the Church in Australia today: most who call themselves Catholic do not know the faith and are openly opposed to the teachings of the Church.

Therefore, there has never been a more important time for Australia’s bishops to strongly defend the faith and clearly teach it to all.

The only question is whether any will do so. It has now been four days since this report was released and the response has been mute silence in the face of this scandal.

Now is not the time for inaction, sluggishness or hiding! In moments of great crises we can be sure that God stands ready to provide great graces to those who have the duty of acting boldly and courageously to defend His Church.

There is great grace available for any bishop who stands ready to do his duty and become the saint that he was made to be.

I pray that you accept this grace. All Australians, whether they adhere to the true faith or are unwittingly or even knowingly part of the revolution against the Church need you to. God has ordained a hierarchy and unless the bishops do their duty of state all of society faces natural and supernatural perils.

The Plenary Council should be stopped. In its current form it will only endanger souls.

Will any bishop state this plainly obvious truth?

May Our Lady Help of Christians, Australia’s great patroness who has so protected the Church in other times of crisis and who has been so rudely and scandalously ignored in the Plenary Council process, guide and protect us.

The ABC: Promoting utter filth with your taxes

The ABC: Promoting utter filth with your taxes

As I wrote earlier today, there is a fresh push to sell the ABC.

And it cannot be sold soon enough.

For example, your dollars are funding this:

It was written by a gay activist and starts with these words:

Are you terrified of sucking d*ck? If you don’t have one yourself, it can be quite confronting. Even if you’re a guy and it’s your first time getting one in your mouth, it can be daunting.

And while that particular article may be two years old, don’t for a moment think that it’s a one off.

Just three days ago the ABC spent 30 minutes giving a ‘beginner’s guide’ on how book a hooker, which included promotion of certain establishments:

In May, the ABC ran this article:

The ABC website proudly displays an article published in April that contains these words:

I don’t care if you’re the most virile person on earth, no one can produce 13 litres of cum in one go. (Though I’m willing to be proven wrong if you have the receipts.)

And nine months ago it thought it was a good idea to produce a program about this:

Ever thought of putting a steel rod into your urethra for sexual pleasure? Sounding can be done no matter what genitals you have. You’ll hear from Mistress Tokyo on what’s involved with this act and why it might be best left to the pros, and producer James Findlay goes to a sounding workshop to see how to sound a penis first hand.

Remember, all of this occurred because the government skimmed your wages and handed the dosh over to the people producing this garbage.

Given the ABC is promoting this filth, it is not hard to understand why it’s basically been running cover for programs such as ‘Safe Schools’. Indeed, it is completely unsurprising that almost every single tweet issued by The Drum’s Twitter account regarding Safe Schools quotes a defender of the program:

Sell the ABC. And save our taxes. It won’t end this filth but at least the weirdos who want it will need to pay for it themselves.

And finally, there is at least one person at the ABC who also acknowledges that this is a serious issue. If there were more Steve Austins, the ABC would not be held in such contempt…

 

With a name like this…

With a name like this…

So, over the weekend this story in The Brisbane Times caught my attention:

The ABC has been labelled an enemy of the LNP by party members.

At the LNP state convention, being held in Brisbane over three days, members passed a resolution calling on the federal Coalition government to “enforce the ABC charter by ensuring balanced debate”.

Logan state electoral council (SEC) member Bernie Gaynor lashed the national broadcaster, arguing the ABC was “not our friends, they are our enemies”.

“Everybody in this room should realise right now that the ABC spends 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 52 weeks of the year, on a whole range of levels, working against us,” he said.

Mr Gaynor suggested the charter could be enforced via withdrawing funding.

“You’re lucky I didn’t get a motion in calling for the ABC to be banned completely, scrapped, sold off, because I tell you what, I’ll put it in next year,” he said.

At the LNP state convention, being held in Brisbane over three days, members passed a resolution calling on the federal Coalition government to “enforce the ABC charter by ensuring balanced debate”.

Just to make it clear, the Bernie Gaynor referred to in this article is not me. But we share the same views.

It must be something to do with the name and it’s proof that the world would be a much better place if there were a few more Bernie Gaynors floating around.

Don’t worry, I’ve done my bit to make sure the next generation has at least one.

As for the ABC, it should be sold. Its taxpayer-funded model fundamentally distorts the economics of media and news.

Rent-seeking lefty commentators should not be given a free run courtesy of the public purse. If they want to earn a living airing their views, they should do so by producing content that the public can freely choose to pay for. Or not.

I’m guessing that most in the ABC know that they would never get by if they were not cocooned in a billion dollar system that is funded by forcibly siphoning hard-earned cash from every Australian worker, regardless of whether they tune into the ABC or not.

Sell the ABC. And let Australian workers choose if they would prefer to subscribe to a sports network or a commercialised ABC running QandA episodes about the impact of climate change on sex-change surgery…

A little question

Posted by on 12:15 pm in Featured, Politics, Values | 6 comments

A little question

Who made the statements below? More importantly, when were they made and what major political battle occurred shortly afterwards?

I think you may be surprised. But, then again, you may not.

There will be brownie points and perpetual boasting rights on this site for the first person with the correct answer.

Who said this:

But the truth is our Western societies are not ageing; they are dying.

And this:

Tonight I will argue that Australians should pursue some clear national goals in the field of family policy. These include:

  • Generally, the promotion of pro-natalist policies designed to ensure that, ideally, our birth rate increases closer to replacement level (2.1) or at least does not decline any further;
  • The recognition that “children are a social good and not merely a private, optional pleasure.” We all have an interest in each other’s children and nobody more so than the childless.
  • The recognition that women and their families’ desire to exercise their human right to have children is being restricted and in many cases denied by the failure of the world of work (mostly ruled by men) to recognize that women are not identical to men, but are, uniquely, able to bear children and should be given every encouragement to do so, as those children, their health and education are a vital national interest.
  • The recognition that a higher birth rate requires us to ENHANCE rather than restrict the choices of women and that it is desirable for women to fulfill two goals: childbearing and a career; and that our society’s survival depends on making it possible for them to do both.
  • The recognition that the dramatic decline in marriage and increase in divorce has had profoundly damaging effects on our society and that we should take steps to promote the traditional married family with a view to increasing the number of marriages and decreasing the number of divorces.
  • In summary, the recognition that our nation would be stronger and our future more secure, if there were more children, more people were married, fewer were divorced and, as a corollary, more children grew up with both their biological parents.

And this:

There is nothing more natural, nothing more human, than the creation of new life when a man and a woman come together in marriage and create a family. That human right has never been more challenged.

And this:

The gravest threat to Western society over this century is neither global warming nor international terrorism. Rather it is the unprecedented, sustained decline in the birth rate in almost all developed countries to levels that are well below replacement rate.

And this:

We should not be afraid to make the case for marriage. There is a very high correlation (higher than there is for race or poverty) in most of the research between the absence of the biological father and child poverty, juvenile crime and sexual abuse.

And this:

We know that children are in every respect better off if they are living with their biological parents, formally married (as opposed to cohabiting). We know that there is a social cost (and not just in dollars) from marriage breakdown and single parenting.

Here’s a little hint:

And thanks to Sean for the tip!

It’s exhausting being woke (or poor Peter FitzSimons)

It’s exhausting being woke (or poor Peter FitzSimons)

It’s time to pity Peter FitzSimons. He’s exhausted.

See:

Folau Donations

Let's talk about Folau's GoFundMe… Watch: Channel 9

Posted by Wide World of Sports on Saturday, 22 June 2019

And why wouldn’t he be a little tuckered out, the poor fella?

After all, he’s been quite busy of late.

FitzSimons has been hard at work organising lynchings and generally hectoring us:

In 2019, you better stand for diversity, or you will lose the support of enormously diverse and newly empowered swaths of the Australian population.

Those words came after GoFundMe closed down Folau’s fundraiser and FitzSimons went on to exult in the fact that the ‘Australian mob’ (his words, not mine) had left the reservation with their pitchforks to go Christian hunting. And then, almost as if to prove FitzSimons wrong, Australians mobbed the Australian Christian Lobby’s website and doubled down their support for Izzy.

FitzSimons has been busy constructing the narrative for selected ‘victims’ and beavering away badgering us:

There is no way around it when you see the doco. Goodes was simply hunted out of the game. And to witness his treatment sheer takes the breath away.

Those words came after a documentary was released about Adam Goodes. Its general premise, I understand, is that Goodes was the victim of ‘racist’ Australia. You may remember that, unlike Folau who has been banned from playing, Goodes retired on his own terms and after being named ‘Australian of the Year’.

And FitzSimons has been flat out haranguing the guy who apparently has not been ‘hunted out of the game’:

Israel? Can you seriously make a case that you’re NOT damaging the game? You think rugby is stronger because of this debacle? #FFS!

Those words come after Rugby Australia chose to initiate action against Folau which has been so successful that, for the sake of brevity, it can best be described this way:

Since Rugby Australia decided that it was an authority on the existence of hell it has managed to get the Australian public offside in a world cup year, the New South Wales coach has quit early, crowd numbers have crashed and the Waratahs, who were leading the Australian conference shortly before Folau was sacked, managed to limp to the end of the season in 12th position overall.

I guess Rugby Australia has proven not only that hell exists but it has managed to do a fairly good job replicating it here on earth.

And, of course, there’s FitzSimons’ endless hashtag activism:

When I do a good tweet, on a good day, I’ll get 2,000 likes. On a great day I’ll get 5,000 likes.

FitzSimons used those words to explain that Twitter metrics meant Folau had lost the support of Australians. I’m not so sure about that but it was brave of the man to out himself as the Labor Party’s chief pollster for the last election.

Anyway, we should all feel a little pity for Pirate Pete.

No doubt it’s a tough slog slagging off other people, trying to get them sacked and overseeing how each and every Australian should spend their hard earned cash.

It’s a hard gig, being woke. It’s not a calling for the faint-hearted, especially when the rest of society is non-compliant. Someone should launch a GoFundMe so poor old Pete can take a holiday.

Not that he’d take it. There’s too much work to be done.

As they say, there’s no rest for the wicked…

Israel Folau’s fundraiser up and running again

Israel Folau’s fundraiser up and running again

GoFundMe shut down Israel Folau’s fundraising campaign yesterday.

And today the Australian Christian Lobby has set a new one up. It is an endeavour I fully support.

At the time of writing, it has amassed over $318,000 in just a few short hours. It seems the progressives’ totalitarian ways have backfired and angered ordinary Australians – including those who do not even call themselves Christian.

I have donated – it’s only $100 but is a token of my admiration for Folau – and I urge all who support freedom to do so as well.

You can find my reasons for donating here. And you can find the ACL’s fundraising page here.

Perhaps while you are on the ACL’s website you may also ask them when they will show an interest in the legal battles I have faced. The ACL apparently has not noticed this fight which has been raging since 2013. Maybe if I played for Australia instead of representing it on the battlefield the ACL would have shown more attention…

Further, my legal battles are ongoing. I received another large bill of approximately $11,000 yesterday. I am simply unable to pay it without your help.

Your ongoing generosity is greatly appreciated and assists my defence in court and keeps this webpage going.

If you wish to donate, details can be found here.

GoFundMe breaks the law

GoFundMe breaks the law

So GoFundMe has shut down Israel Folau’s fundraiser. For those who have been living under a rock lately, Israel Folau was sacked by Rugby Australia for quoting from the Bible.

And his fundraiser was to help pay the legal costs for his court battle against Raelene Castle and her diversity-is-for-everyone-except-Christians crew.

But it is more truthful to say that GoFundMe has shut down the fundraiser of thousands of Australians who want to support Israel Folau. After all, they are the ones who were charged a fee to use this service.

I was one of these people.

I live in Queensland. I used the service provided by GoFundMe to donate to Israel Folau. And like many others I did so on the basis of my religious beliefs and to show my support for Israel Folau who has been punished for expressing a mainstream Christian viewpoint.

And now GoFundMe has scarpered with my donation plus a $10 fee, stating piously that:

As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity.

While we welcome GoFundMes engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.

Did I say piously? Sorry, I meant politically. GoFundMe issued a political statement about a fundraiser motivated by religious belief. And GoFundMe happens to have the exact opposite political and religious beliefs as me, their customer.

Which brings us to an interesting point. It is unlawful in Queensland for service providers to discriminate on the grounds of religious or political belief.

Specifically, it is unlawful to fail to supply goods or services on these gounds. It is illegal to discriminate in the terms on which goods or services are supplied. It is against the law to discriminate in the way goods or services are supplied. And, just to make it clear, it is even prohibited to treat another person unfavourably in any way in connection with the supply of goods or services.

See:

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION ACT 1991 – SECT 7

Discrimination on the basis of certain attributes prohibited

7 DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CERTAIN ATTRIBUTES PROHIBITED

The Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of the following attributes—

(a) sex;
(b) relationship status;
(c) pregnancy;
(d) parental status;
(e) breastfeeding;
(f) age;
(g) race;
(h) impairment;
(i) religious belief or religious activity;
(j) political belief or activity;
(k) trade union activity;
(l) lawful sexual activity;
(m) gender identity;
(n) sexuality;
(o) family responsibilities;
(p) association with, or relation to, a person identified on the basis of any of the above attributes.

Interestingly, it is also unlawful to discriminate on grounds of ‘gender identity’ and ‘sexuality’ but we all know that Christians do not have a gender identity or sexuality so these provisions obviously only apply to other people.

And see:

ANTI-DISCRIMINATION ACT 1991 – SECT 46

Discrimination in goods and services area

46 DISCRIMINATION IN GOODS AND SERVICES AREA

(1) A person who supplies goods or services (whether or not for reward or profit) must not discriminate against another person—

(a) by failing to supply the goods or services; or
(b) in the terms on which goods or services are supplied; or
(c) in the way in which goods or services are supplied; or
(d) by treating the other person unfavourably in any way in connection with the supply of goods and services.

(2) In this section, a reference to a person who supplies goods and services does not include an association that—

(a) is established for social, literary, cultural, political, sporting, athletic, recreational, community service or any other similar lawful purposes; and
(b) does not carry out its purposes for the purpose of making a profit.

And this is not just the case in Queensland. Victoria has similar laws.

Which brings us to another interesting point.

There is absolutely no point taking a complaint about this to the Diversity Commissars.

While GoFundMe has broken sacred anti-discrimination laws in Queensland and Victoria, the bodies that oversee those laws are entirely corrupted, biased and broken.

The law might state that it is illegal to discriminate on the grounds of religious or political belief in the provision of goods or services. But we all know that there is simply no way the GroupThink Bureaucrats with their 1984 hats on will ever do anything to action a complaint made by Christians against the Gaystapo.

The words in the laws might have meanings but we all know those laws were only meant to protect special people at the expense of others.

And this is the key take away of the Israel Folau farce. Every time you hear the words ‘respect’, ‘diversity’ or ‘inclusion’ you know that some poor sod is about to be sacked, or some outcast is about to be told why they can’t play because they quoted from the Bible.

The entire anti-discrimination industry is a hypocritical sham. If we learn one thing from this saga, it must be that we don’t need a religious discrimination law. What we need to do is to abolish the human rights rent-seekers who are leeching off taxpayers to impose their utterly joyless worldview on all of us.

The last thing any of us need is for a state or commonwealth parliament to give this mob more power over religion.

Cheering in the Gaystapo

Cheering in the Gaystapo

Israel Folau has been sacked at the behest of rainbow activists using one of Australia’s iconic brands to pull Rugby Australia’s purse strings.

And now Israel Folau’s fundraising campaign has been deleted by rainbow activists at GoFundMe.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I might have mentioned sometime in the past that something like this would happen.

If we cast our mind back, oh, a mere 500-days we were told that legalising ‘homosexual marriage’ would not threaten our freedoms.

And in a mere twinkling of the eye all those who sounded the alarm have been proven right.

You can’t quote from the Bible and keep your job. You can’t even quote from the Bible and play sport. And you certainly cannot run a fundraiser now to try and fight this insanity in the courts.

Welcome to freedom, 2019 style, where the maddening mob is rampaging across the carcass of civilisation to demand the enslaving chains of slavery.

The insanity of this situation is beyond imagining.

As I write and you read there is a full scale campaign underway to ensure that your boss owns you, your beliefs, your private time, your social media and even your very ability to spend the money you earn as you see fit. And this comes after the former head of the Australian Human Rights Commission – the peak body of those driving this insanity – bemoaned the fact that she couldn’t eavesdrop on the your dinner conversations as well.

It took hundreds of years after the coming of Christ to eradicate slavery from Europe and many centuries more to see it abolished in the greater Western world. And just a few days after our modern, progressive and enlightened society threw off the yoke of Christian marriage it’s banging down the door of slavery again.

If you voted for homosexual marriage, you need to own up to your part in this lunacy.

If you could not be bothered to vote, you also need to accept your burden of responsibility.

And if you want to understand what it was like in Germany in the 1930s have a look around Australia today.

Then work out whether you are part of the cheering mob welcoming the Gaystapo, a member of the silent and irrelevant ‘middle ground’, or if you are one of the few prepared to put everything on the line to defend truth, justice and freedom.

I have no idea whether Israel Folau will launch a new fundraiser. I hope he does. And as soon as I hear anything I will publicise it as much as I can.

Why I donated to Israel Folau

Why I donated to Israel Folau

If Twitter is your thermometer, then Israel Folau is a whiny, rich kid diverting money from real Christian causes and getting others to pay for his inability to adhere to a contract.

See:

But Twitter is not my thermometer and those who use it as one are still scratching their heads about the election result.

So I donated to support Israel Folau as soon as I heard that he’d set up a GoFundMe page.

Here are five reasons why.

  1. I’ve been there

I’ve been at the edge of the cliff where Israel Folau now stands. Actually, I’m still there.

Since 2013 I’ve faced 50 separate allegations of wrong doing, all directly brought against me by LGBT activists or commenced at their behest. One single activist has lodged 36 complaints against me under New South Wales anti-discrimination laws and even stated that he was doing so in an attempt to bankrupt me and seize my assets.

Not a single allegation against me has succeeded and I’ve defended myself in military inquiries and state tribunals, before magistrates and even in the High Court in Canberra.

Despite this, LGBT activists know that a mere complaint can destroy a career, a life, a reputation and so the complaint process rolls on. The only reason Folau is in this situation is because LGBT activists have been hectoring Rugby Australia and its leadership have cravenly caved to their demands for a beheading.

Israel Folau will need to steel himself for the likelihood that anti-discrimination attacks will be opened up against him to tie him down and wear him out.

Defending myself has cost more than $400,000 in legal fees.

I still remember receiving the very first bill of $2,200 and knowing that if I paid it I would be entering a world which I knew nothing about and into a battle that I would much rather avoid.

Pressing ‘pay now’ used up pretty much every cent my wife and I had free. It literally felt like stepping off a cliff when I processed that bank transfer.

I takes courage to do what Israel Folau has done. He needs support. I know that too.

It was only my father’s support, advice and encouragement that stopped me from resigning and backing out at the very first skirmish. And the kind words and donations I’ve received from average, ordinary Australians – many who do not even agree with my views – that have kept me going ever since. I would never have made it to court and successfully out the other side without them.

Izzy needs that support now too.

  1. This is about far more than Israel Folau

This battle may look, on the surface, to be one between Israel Folau and Rugby Australia over an employment contract. And that is exactly what the activists want you to believe.

They want to keep us isolated and divided. They want to hide the truth too and with hypocritical words.

On the one hand they say this has nothing to do with religion. And on the other they claim Rugby Australia’s contracts limit Christian religious expression through words such as ‘code of conduct’ and ‘respect’ and ‘diversity’ that are interpreted to mean whatever the corporate elite want them to mean.

This is a fight that impacts every single one of us. Truth be told, it even threatens the freedom of the very people clamouring for Israel Folau’s head.

Any Australian who believes in freedom has a choice: to sit and watch or to jump into the trenches with Israel Folau.

We may not have the talent to play beside him on the footy field, but each and every one of us has the means and ability – in our own way – to run with Izzy in a much more important match.

If Israel loses this fight, we all lose. But if he wins, we all do as well. We need to make sure Israel Folau succeeds.

  1. The principles matter

Make no bones about it: this battle centres on the attempt to silence Christian expression.

But it is also about far more than that. Our very freedom from slavery is at stake. It’s as simple as that.

On one hand are those who argue that our free time and beliefs belong to our boss. They might not know it, but they are new age slavers. They think ‘The Man’ owns us. They argue for the power of money interests over personal freedom.

Ironically, if these people win they will find out the hard way that they have obtained a bitter chalice indeed. No one will be safe from the ever-expansive reach of the corporate and political slave traders.

And on the other hand there is Israel Folau and those who stand with him defending true freedom and human dignity. And even if this ship was sinking, I’d still rather go down with it and with my colours proudly nailed to the mast.

With these principles at stake, we cannot afford to sit idly by.

  1. Every bit adds up

I donated the princely sum of $100 to Izzy.

It is really not much more than a token gesture. But it was about all that my wife and I could do.

However, every bit adds up. I know this very well. The average donation I have received since 2013 is $50. It takes a lot of them to reach $400,000.

But if enough people are generous each little gift adds up to something much, much more.

Millions of Australians support Israel Folau. Hundreds of thousands are actively watching this fight unfold. Tens of thousands are prepared to express their support.

But it’s just the way of human nature that only a portion who want Israel Folau to succeed will do something substantial to help him on his journey.

These are the people who will donate. Some large. But it will be mostly small donations that get him the firepower we all need him to have in the court room. In doing so, they will also send Izzy a message that he is not alone. That is very important when most in the media and the corporate world are intent on mocking and ridiculing him.

And despite all the money Israel Folau has been paid in the past, this battle is one that will cost him and it will probably cost him millions.

No one should expect him to wear the cost of fighting for the rest us of alone. Now is the time to help.

  1. I hope Izzy succeeds where I failed

The only legal battle I have lost was the one over my sacking.

Despite every military investigation clearing me of wrong doing, the former Chief of Defence Force and new Governor General, David Hurley, sacked me anyway.

He wrote that the expression of my views, even when off duty and out of uniform, had caused him to lose confidence in my ability as an Army officer. This was despite the fact that he also acknowledged that I was a high performing member of the Australian Army who had been decorated for operational service.

The truth is that my private views no longer fit in with Defence’s new politically-correct cultural change agenda and its demand for the adoption of an essentially pagan and man-centred religion. And senior officers are simply too afraid of being seen to cross the LGBT activists in Defence and wider society.

Although I won the first round, the Full Court of the Federal Court decided on appeal that it was lawful for the Defence Chief to terminate my commission for the private expression of my Christian beliefs.

One thing I have learnt since 2013 is that the law is full of technicalities. For that reason, Israel Folau’s sacking is different in many ways to mine.

But I hope he succeeds where I did not. We need someone like Israel Folau to push back against those who believe expressing Christian views in your own time is a sackable offence.
