2 Tim 3:12 Indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
The entity in this case is Australia’s GoFundMe site and the person at the center of the story is Israel Folau, the famous former Australian rugby player who was sacked by Rugby Australia precisely because in public on social media, he had affirmed his belief as a Christian in the sinfulness of homosexuality.
As Premier in the United Kingdom reports Folau “launched a webpage last week to raise money for the legal cost of trying to get his job back, which he said would cost $3 million. On Monday, it was taken down after receiving about $760,000, with the GoFundMe regional manager saying, “After a routine period of evaluation, we’ve concluded that this campaign violates our terms of service.” In the official statement, the company said, “As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity. While we welcome GoFundMe’s engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.'”
Notice the irony here. In the name of non-exclusion, GoFundMe Australia has announced it will exclude.
