Rugby Australia is about to find out that anti-Christian bigotry comes at a cost. $10 million dollars to be precise.
Dumped rugby star Israel Folau will assert his dismissal cost him the chance to become the Wallabies’ greatest tryscorer and the best years of his career, as part of his damages claim against Rugby Australia and the NSW Waratahs.
Lawyers for Folau on Thursday lodged an unfair dismissal claim with the Fair Work Commission against his former employers.
Folau will argue that under the Fair Work Act his employment was unlawfully terminated because of his religion.
The 30-year-old dual international is seeking the value of his $5 million contract as well as other potential earnings following his participation in this year’s Rugby World Cup.
A source close to Folau said the figure was still being considered but could be as much as $10 million, which could reportedly bankrupt the sporting bodies.
Get woke, go broke.
Mark “cuck” Latham has made it clear he thinks fellow-SJW-traveler Qantas was behind the move:
Back to the story:
Before his contract was torn up he set a new record this season for most tries scored in Super Rugby history, and is the Wallabies’ joint-third highest try scorer with 37 tries, behind David Campese who scored 64.
His application claims he had this record mark in sight. “The termination has cost Mr Folau the best years of his rugby career, participation at the Rugby World Cup, the chance to become the greatest Wallaby tryscorer (a decades-old record he was likely to break), and the associated exposure and opportunities,” the dispute application stated.
Nothing will save you from the SJW rage mob. You can be the non-white Don Bradman of Australian Rugby, if you step out of line they will come for you. For this reason it is crucial that the SJW rage mob understands that nothing will save them from having to pay the price financially. You can either have so-called “social justice” or you can eat. You can’t have both.
The stakes here could not be higher:
But Rugby Australia was adamant it was right to sack Folau. “This is an issue of an employee and his obligations to his employers within the contract that he signed,” RA said in a statement…
Folau’s application stated his employment was terminated because of his religion and included nine reasons to illustrate this.
A member of the Truth of Jesus Christ Church, part of the reasoning was that “as a manifestation of Mr Folau’s religion, he is compelled to communicate the word of God and the message contained within the Bible (Biblical Teachings)”.
It said that in this context he “communicated certain Biblical Teachings on his personal Instagram account”.
RA and the Waratahs demanded he remove the post, which he refused to do so which led to his termination.
Folau said in a statement he felt he had no choice but to pursue legal action, and stand up for his beliefs and the rights of all Australians.
We are essentially about to reach the logical conclusion of the Yes victory in the fake marriage postal vote. Your XYZ was just one of many voices which pointed out that religious freedom would die as a result of legalising fake marriage, and this prediciton is about to be put to the test.
There is pre-Folau and there is post-Folau. Australia will be a different country as a result of this case. We will either have religious freedom or we will not. It really is that simple.
To finish up, get a load of these comments from Alan Jones:
It saw the game’s governing body come under renewed attack by media heavyweight Alan Jones, who has been relentless in condemning the actions of Rugby Australia and its CEO Raelene Castle.
“It’s time for the parasites to depart the field …” he wrote for The Australian. “The game is being run by clowns and until we get rid of the clowns, the circus music will continue to play.”
