    Did you ask them at interview what their religious persuasion was?

    No

    The thing is, whenever I have advertised for a position in my business (which is not very often) I have always had dozens of applicants. Only a couple will get to the interview stage. I were advertising under a Law that you seem to agree with in your support of Folau's right to be a bigot, a potential Israel Folau would not get as far as the interview.

    If you want to stretch the definition everyone in the world is a bigot. As soon as you disagree with someone you are a bigot.
