Senator Richard Colbeck is the Minister for Sport.
Now an interesting development occurred in the Folau saga:
Rugby Australia may have inadvertently opened another legal avenue for Israel Folau to pursue following suggestions that sponsors were threatening to withdraw support if the former Wallaby player wasn’t sacked.
“[The alternative] would be that we’d have no sponsors at all because no sponsor has indicated they would be willing to be associated with social media posts of that sort, and that includes government, because we’ve also heard from them,” he said. “We would also potentially be in litigation with employees who are gay and who would say we’re not providing a workplace that is safe or respectful.”
Is the Australian government of the view that the public display of Christianity is a problem that should lead to people being fired from their jobs?
