    This writer sums up the Folau case perfectly:

    Regardless of its content, Israel Folau’s Instagram post has morphed into an act of civil disobedience at a time in which a tiny elite is dictating the boundaries of acceptable opinion. It has tapped into the frustration of we all feel when yet another advertiser is browbeaten into pulling advertising money from Sky News while we’re all forced to fund the ABC. The grating repetitiveness of climate debates in which anyone who goes against the zeitgeist is a ‘denier’ and that anyone concerned about the costs of addressing it – as Shorten so infamously said – is ‘stupid’. The irritation we all feel when our bank or airline or supermarket gushes about every fashionable cause under the sun at the same time as they’re apparently indifferent to customer service.

    You could also ask why is he bothered about other people going to hell when he's so confident that he's one of the chosen?

    I hate agreeing with you, but yes, it's pretty obvious to anyone with an open mind.

    you could live like a king in Cambodia on that amount of money. Whngers like this really give me the pip because the majority of genuine refugees are just glad to get a chance at life.

    They also make the majority of their money from people who are down and out and have lost all hope....No different to vultures IMO...
