Elsewhere in the news: The brown man ABC staff proudly hate

World XV coach Steve Hansen has defended the selection of controversial ex-Wallaby Israel Folau to play against the Barbarians on Sunday, saying the move will help promote diversity within the sport.

“The flag is being brought to the attention of people, and the awareness of why it is there is to support the people that are judged and treated poorly because of who they are. They deserve to be loved and cared for as much as anybody else.”

The rainbow pride flag will fly at Twickenham for the match, something Hansen said would not have happened without Folau’s inclusion.

Folau, who was sacked by Rugby Australia four years ago, has been named in a star-studded squad, along with Australians Nick Phipps and Marika Koroibete.

Hansen said that although he did not share Folau’s views and that his selection could be harmful, he was first and foremost a player who deserved to play. “Israel Folau is a very good rugby player.”

“He’s world class. And I know by picking him that there will be some people hurt and I get that. However, I want those people to understand that Israel’s belief and views are not ours. And we don’t agree with them.”

The flag flies to invert the theology of reparation, making Christian truth the ‘sin’ and sin ‘salvation.’

    Funny thing about “wacism” in sport .. the media never mention the fact that there are NO “blek” coaches in either Ra Ra or thugby ……… shirley, this should be front & centre .. LOL!

    “Hansen said that although he did not share Folau’s views…”
    Interesting, because the passage Folau quoted was all about forgiveness and redemption for sinners – all sinners. It is passing strange that thieves, murderers, adulterers etc didn’t seem so offended by the quote.

    Yes, Roger A. And what about the drunks? Shouldn’t they too be offended at being overlooked.
