Also, as per the title of the article, its sorta picking on Christians and not an overall view - i.e. Buddhists in Myanmar, Muslims in various places . Also fails to take into account the slaughters as a percentage of the population of the earth at the time of the incidents.

So complex, so depressing - man's inhumanity to man.
Yes, I was deliberately quoting something that was "sorta picking" on Christianity, mainly to counter the view that Chistianity is only ever the "victim", clearly there are plenty of cases where they were the victimiser. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone and all that.

Israel Folaus fight resonates with many australians, and its a fight he is taking up for all of us that stand with him, There has been many that have been victimised for having the same beliefs, and there will be many more. In many countries, millions have died because of these same beliefs.

Victimised for homophobic comments and spreading hate speech? Way too many people have died and been persecuted for their sexual orientation with religious leaders, followers and supporters leading the charge.

GoFundMe don't seem to understand between a civil legal matter (e.g. an alleged breach of contract) and a crime. This is just another egregious example of corporate bullying directed at individuals who don't mindlessly support the rainbow fascist agenda.
Lets just say it seems you kinda might have some very strong views on the subject which might just make your own responses a tad inflammatory.

Sorry but his legal case is not a defence of a crime on religious grounds.If it was just that then his appeal would be OK under those T&Cs.
I'm not saying that it is. My point is that the T&Cs seek to ban legal defence funds related to alleged crimes; but no crime was committed by Folau. The dispute between Folau and RA is civil in nature so there is no basis for GoFundMe to ban the page on the basis of the clause quoted.
