I am writing this post after I saw an article with the heading “Another lifeline for Folau”. For those who don’t know Israel Folau is/was an Australian Rugby. A player who repeatedly made very anti-lgbt comments, even though it was against the contract he signed and he was warned repeatedly.
What makes me angry the most is his supporters saying his “Freedom of Speech” is being taken away. He still hasn’t deleted the tweets, he hasn’t been arrested, he’s not been banned from social media. He lost his job because he because he went against his contract, that he signed, that assuming he actually read.
This post is about actual discrimination, actual persecution against the LGBT. People who have actually died from the lgbt community. Links and Facts to actual persecution and actual discrimination. Please feel free to share:
