    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.


    Should we ever be faced with the appalling situation that your religion gives you a free to ticket to vilify minorities, then our employment contract will amended to contain a clause not unlike the following..

    Our staff and our customer base is diverse and varied, and includes people of many different ethnicities, races, skin colours, countries of origin, religions, sexual orientations and gender identities. You will treat all customers and colleagues with respect at all times. Accordingly, you will not make adverse, vilifying or abusive statements towards them, or any of the demographic groups they represent, either on or off the business premises. Additionally, you will not make such comments in a public-facing way, including on any social media platform or in any publication or distributed document of any kind. This is a "no-exception" clause; any violation of it could bring about your immediate dismissal.


    Of course, I would run it past my solicitor first to smooth out the edges, but this would be the gist of it.

    Any potential job applicant who objects to that clause, or who indicated they would not sign a contract with that clause in it will not get to the interview stage.

    Now lets look at the whole, unredacted definition...

    bigot
    noun big·​ot | \ ˈbi-gət

    \


    Definition of bigot



    : a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance

    It is, but remember, Folau's was his second offence, and further, he defiantly refused to show any remorse for what he did, and defiantly said he could not guarantee he would not do it again.

    If this was Latu's first offence, a stern reprimand with a suspension and a warning that he is "on notice" should suffice. If he does it again, fire his arse.

    (This is what we did with Zac Guildford: first time, benefit of the doubt, second time, goneburger)

    You got me Mr Kreskin, but I was really hoping to get on the company Christmas card mailing list. I'll PM my address.

    Do you think your employees deserve the Christmas paid holiday?

    Sounds like a case of mistaken identity. The person they recorded isn't even a Crusaders player, or a member of their staff.

    Its probably someone who said he was SAID he was a Crusaders player, and the gullible young man believed him
