    Absolute, 100%, solid gold truth!
    " you only need " is an absolute. An absolute is a fallacy, just like me exclaiming "all homosexuals will go to hell"

    The need for religious freedom is to prevent the extreme, the genocide of a religion.

    Absolute, 100%, turd.

    Hmmm, not sure what that would be. I'd like to know what the pragmatic solution he has in mind is.

    From aritcle

    NSW Rugby Union chairman Roger Davis

    "You’d like to look back on rugby as the game they play in heaven, not as the defining sport for social rights. I don’t think that’s our obligation."

    Crossref, I think Mr Davis might believe in hell. He is biased and his word is no good and he is an SOB and he is a bigot.
    I really doubt any of last sentence, but giving the counter attack some ammo to expend.

    I hope i can play on that squad in heaven, but i heard everyone think they are a #9

    You’d be surprised, folks do still believe in Valhalla. As is their right. Todays-Valhalla

    One pragmatic solution would be for IF to «f@*! off and get a life. Just a suggestion.

    Are you judging him on more than his invalid twitter post?, or are you judging his life on his race, family, wealth, athletic success, his netball wife, his religion, his sexuality.

    Tsk,tsk tsk, you and I have opinions (and you know what is said about opinions) we are not the judge. Maybe we at our highest level are public jury of public opinion.

    But you are attempting to destroy a person based on what they said, albeit inappropriate, by including lots of human conditions that do not apply to that statement

    You are using a leftist tactic, yuck.
