The libs strike again as they manage to stop Israel Folau's GoFundMe campaign.


Folau had asked for public donations in his bid to raise three million Australian dollars after his contract was terminated by Rugby Australia last month, following a social media post in which he said homosexuals were destined for hell unless they repented their sins.

Folau's attempted to crowdfund for his legal action against Rugby Australia has been shut down by GoFundMe, which will refund all money raised to donors.

After receiving more than 700,000 Australian dollars in donations, Folau’s GoFundMe page was shut down due to a violation.

“Today we will be closing Israel Folau’s campaign and issuing full refunds to all donors. After a routine period of evaluation, we have concluded that this campaign violates our terms of service,” GoFundMe’s Australia regional manager Nicola Britton said.

“As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity. While we welcome GoFundMe’s engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.

“In the days since Mr Folau’s campaign launched, more than one million dollars have been donated to hundreds of other campaigns, large and small, across Australia. Those acts of kindness are the heart of GoFundMe.

“Our platform exists to help people help others. Australians have shown themselves to be among the most kind and generous people in the world. We look forward to helping more Australians fundraise for causes they care about in the coming months and years.”


This man committed no crime, He clearly cannot afford legal action so tried to raise money.

Sure his views may be unpopular, but isn't this what the LGBTQ community fight for themselves? Unpopular views and opinions?

Christianity, Islam, Judaism still preach homosexuality is wrong, are the next in the firing line for having an opinion?

He was banned for speaking his mind,and now his fund me has been banned.I do not believe as he believes but he should be allowed to say what he believes.If he is banned then by the same reasoning the Bible and Koran should be banned,as hate literature.

He wasn't even speaking his mind per se, he tweeted a quote from the Bible, so, in essence, that's 'illegal'. Granted, the 'Warning' pic was a bit ott, but still.

Here's the 'offending' post-

So he's a religious crank saying just about everybody's going to hell.Sacking him is like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut.Wiser surely to laugh it off,by punishing him they are creating a martyr.

I'm not sure it's possible to create a Christian martyr these days to be honest. But fingers crossed!
