    Right, so, Rugby AUS tried to suppress his public expression of his personal religious beliefs off of the field, and while he was acting in a personal capacity.

    And they got spanked in the end and had to apologize.

    Sounds fair to me.

    I don't see why he would even think he has a good reason to sue.

His rugby contract was terminated and a law suit re religious freedoms was played out in the media.

    This is GQ's not so brief timeline of the entire Israel Folau Saga

    Subsequently, our intrepid leader Scotty from Marketing, a devout Christian in only a way a politician can be, decided to introduce a religious freedoms bill into parliament to prevent good christains from being vilified for condemning drunks, homosexuals and sinners in public in the future.

    This was his Jar Jar moment






















    From SMH's article on the matter:

    Not really. Israel felou broke a contract which isnt covered as a freedom of speech issue anywhere.

    From SMH's article on the matter:

    The bill protects "statements of belief" from being the subject of a complaint under any federal, state or territory anti-discrimination law. The protection extends to statements made in writing or by spoken words that ridicule, humiliate or even intimidate another person.

    Employers will be able to ridicule Christians in the workplace. For example, an atheist boss could put a poster above a Christian worker’s desk saying "Christianity is superstitious nonsense". The boss could also say things like "Christianity is like a mental disorder" to a Christian during a job interview.
