    That was back in the day in Australia when gays were thrown off cliffs to drown (Sydney), thrown into the river by policemen to drown (Adelaide), routinely hunted and bashed by police (in Brisbane), arrested, charged and gaoled for being what they were (all documented in records) and forced to live double lives because it was too risky to live openly as gay. My husband's grandfather was one of many who married women in order to be accepted by society. This marriage, like the others, was an abject failure. The male "friend" who signed his death certificate in Sydney in 1959 was the same one with whom he'd migrated from Wolverhampton in 1924.

    Here's one: Drew Mitchell‏Verified account @drew_mitchell Jun 20 e YOU are in a fight that YOU chose to be in after YOU broke the terms of YOUR contract, the kids below are in a fight they NEVER wanted to be in & yet YOU think YOU deserve donations more than they do??!! It’s no longer about religion, it’s about YOU and YOUR greed.

    He's perfectly entitled to say "stuff like that" when he's a private citizen. But he's not: he's a high profile employee of Rugby Australia and his employer has asked him not to say "stuff like that" while he's representing them. And he signed a contract to say that he wouldn't. Just as Coles would be fully entitled to sack him if he was preaching his "going to hell" stuff in his Coles uniform outside his Coles supermarket and p***ing off their customers - especially if he had already been warned, signed a contract to say he wouldn't do it again....then did. It's no different. It's being refunded by GoFundMe. So why do you target them? His spray included adulterers, fornicators, drunks, liars, idolaters - probably most of the Australian public over the age of 18.

    Of course: they do not wish to be associated with any legal defence associated with "hate, violence, harassment, bullying, discrimination, terrorism or intolerance of any kind relating to race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, sex, gender or gender identity or serious disabilities or diseases”. Pefectly reasonable and responsible decision.

    You're going to be refunded, Parley. Lots of deserving causes on GoFundMe could use that money.

    Congratulations Ash Barty

    No, Birmingham. Perthbum obviously has no clue what goes on in his neck of the woods. Great win by another tennis player of Aboriginal heritage: would have thought PB would know that considering he's always looking out for them.

    DNA Testing

    Ditto for me. I had more "northwestern Europe" than I might have originally expected but have recently found several family lines of French Huguenot ancestors arriving in London so that makes perfect sense.

    State Of Origin

    Why are they playing in Perth - and not Qld. or NSW...or even Victoria, which would be a closer "neutral" state?

    And the next Prime Minister is, ???

    This is because public affairs almost always involve men who are high profile public figures - and women who are aren't, so there's not much public interest in them. When the woman is well known she is likely to be criticised more than the male. An example is Camilla Parker Bowles: there is still some very vicious criticism of her in social media, much worse than of Charles, even though her husband had long had a reputation of being a serial philanderer.

    ....if you wish to donate your hard earned to a greedy, arrogant, dishonest, hypocritical multimillionaire. If you wish to be a good Christian....or a good human being....donate to people who are really suffering through no fault of their own.

    His mistake was in not abiding by the contract he knowingly signed. If he couldn't adhere to the conditions he should have had the honesty to not sign it.

    If he were "such a devout Christian" he (1) would have had the honesty to adhere to the conditions of the contract he signed for $4 million dollars - or the honesty to refuse to sign if he thought it was in conflict with his religion (2) would not have included a disclaimer that money donated for his legal action did not actually have to be used for his legal action (3) would have used equity from his multi million dollar property portfolio for his legal case (which he knowingly entered into) (4) would not play rugby on the Sabbath (Exodus) (5) would not have any tattoos (Leviticus) (6) would not be pursuing $10 million lawsuits (love of money - 1 Timothy)

    It gets even more disgusting: A disclaimer at the bottom of the fundraiser says Israel Folau has no obligation to spend the cash on his legal fees. http://ow.ly/uCLX50uJt77 And if there’s any left over, he gets to keep it. The shamelessness of a millionaire begging for more. What a grub!
