Israel Folau is one of the bravest men in Australia. While countless so called “conservatives”, “libertarians” and even so-called men of faith have bowed, scraped and apologised before the leftist establishment whenever they demanded it Folau has stood tall.
Yet for some on the so-called “Right” this hasn’t been enough. They whinge and bitch and whine about “contracts” and “private companies”. Such grovelling worms need to understand one thing; if they can take down a multi-millionaire rugby player for repeating what has been Christian orthodoxy for two millennia there is absolutely nothing to stop them doing the same to you. If they can get a high profile sportsman fired, cut off his efforts to fund his own defence and even go after his wife for not condemning her husband what do you think they can do to you?
What Folau said about unrepentant homosexuality was considered common sense four decades ago and an acceptable opinion not long ago at all. His stated beliefs align with those held by the vast majority of the world’s two billion plus Christians and Muslims. If they can make as high profile as him an unperson for saying something as commonplace as that what can they do to you? If the forces of darkness win this one and drag him down what on earth makes you think you won’t be next?
You think that because you don’t hold silly religious beliefs that the leftist thought police will pass you over? You think if you stay quiet enough and only say what you really think online or in private that you’ll be safe? You think that if you scream along with the leftist crowd that they won’t one day turn on you?
When they come after your job and you can’t pay your mortgage or feed your family, when they put pressure on not only your friends but your wife and children to disown you or suffer the wrath of the baying leftist mob it won’t matter if you threw Folau under the bus now. They’ll still take everything they can from you, turn you out into the street and dance with joy if you get hit by a truck.
The Left isn’t coming for Christians, they’re not coming for “homophobes” or “racists” or “sexists”. They’re coming for everyone and everything that doesn’t enthusiastically bow to their ever changing dogmas enthusiastically enough for their liking. They’re coming for you and they won’t rest until every independent thought you’ve ever had is beaten out of you, your spirit broken, your life in tatters and the shrivelled husk of what used to be your body is enthusiastically applauding.
Whether you like it or not Israel Folau is fighting for you. Remember these people have the pitchforks and torches out because a man most of them had probably never heard of said that a God they don’t believe in declared in a book they’ve never read that unless they repent of a sin most of them haven’t committed and none of them believe is wrong they will go to a place they don’t even believe exists.
If you don’t think they’ll come after you for disagreeing with them on anything more substantive than that you’re kidding yourself. And if you’re still joining in the anti-Folau dogpile you should be ashamed.
Because after him they’re coming for you.
