The elite’s hypocritical refusal to coexist with Christians

The political-cultural elite endlessly recite their mantras of “diversity”, “inclusion”, “tolerance” and “coexist”, but they’re all big, fat lies. Like Soviet commissars preaching about their “worker’s paradise” even as tens of millions of their workers are starved, beaten and shot, the “progressive” elite preach a good game but don’t live up to their high-falutin’ words.

Instead of diversity, they enforce a rigid, PC monoculture. Instead of inclusion, they exclude everyone who disagrees with their “progressive” orthodoxy. They are absolutely unable to coexist with Christians who have the temerity to speak their minds. quote.

If you’re a Christian rugby player, you’d better shut up about it. That’s the message from Rugby Australia […]

If Folau is harming young people coming to grips with their sexuality by consigning them to the naughty corner in the afterlife, what is RA doing to teenage Christians? It’s correct to say that Folau’s cumbersome quoting of Corin­thians may fill young gay people with humiliation. It’s also correct that a lot of young people are ­attempting to lead good and clean lives by following the Bible rather than going like sheep with their friends into clubs and pubs and ­alcohol and lust. It’s a shame the message they’re getting from the angry mob is this: you are wrong. end quote.

I have a reasonable number of homosexual friends and relations, some young, some not. Not one of them has found Folau’s comments anything worse than mildly silly. None are “offended”, much less “humiliated”. Even a poll by gay magazine DNA found that just under half of its readers either didn’t care or thought that Folau was entitled to free speech. The broader community is even more forthright: 75 per cent of Australians believe that freedom of speech and religion need to be protected. 60 per cent think that people who do not agree with homosexual activity should be free to say so.

Rugby Australia (RA) is tying itself up in contradictions, if not outright lies, to appease the powerful “rainbow” lobby. quote.

I see more contradictions in RA’s position than Folau’s…The asterisk to their inclusion is clear. You’re welcome to join us, but shut up about the Bible stuff. Shut up about the homosexual stuff. You’re right about the thieves and adulteress and liars — those bastards are doomed. But let’s just pretend the Bible doesn’t mention anything else.

[…] “It’s important and we’re an ­inclusive game and they’re a big part of our culture and our rugby culture, and we don’t want to make it divisive,” [Director of rugby Scott] Johnson said of the Wallabies players who are siding with Folau.

The contradiction: Hasn’t RA made it divisive by totally and utterly rejecting one of its own?

“But what I’ve come across is that we’re respectful both ways,” Johnson said. The contradiction: Clearly, the respect is going only one way.

Most tellingly, Johnson’s comment: “They’re paid to play rugby and I think they understand that.” The contradiction: They’re paid to play rugby. Folau was being paid $4 million to play rugby. Because he’s a hell of a rugby player. Now RA is desperate to banish him for reasons that have nothing to do with rugby. He should shut up about anything that is not to do with rugby. end quote.

RA is out of touch with not just the Australian community and its own players, but with much of sport in general. quote.

If you start kicking the Christians out of sport, you won’t have anyone left.

When Novak Djokovic won the Australian Open and ripped off his shirt, a miniature wooden cross was hung from his neck.

When Kawhi Leonard knocked Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers out of the NBA finals on Monday, the cross was tattooed on his right shoulder […] Leonard said in his on-court interview that faith had turned his life around. end quote.

The bigoted anti-Christian zealots at RA might want to take lessons from, of all people, Ginger Spice. quote.

[RA’s] inability to co-exist reminds me of a Spice Girl and her nuns. Yes, it’s become that ridiculous. Geri Halliwell bought a house next to a nunnery. She felt bad about the paparazzi forever being on the doorstep of her holy neighbours.

She went to apologise to them in person…The clumsiness of her words were less important than the ­spirit in which they were ­delivered.

She was basically a peace-loving soul, so those nuns became her greatest protectors. end quote.
