"Israel Folau's controversial appeal for financial assistance for his legal fight against Rugby Australia has been shut down by GoFundMe Australia, with more than $650,000 in funds donated to the sacked rugby star expected to be refunded.
"Rugby Australia terminated Folau's multimillion-dollar contract last month after he posted a photo to Instagram in April that said homosexuals were destined for hell unless they repented of their sins.
"Folau, 30, launched legal proceedings with the Fair Work Commission and said that, if a deal is not struck with RA, he would take the matter to the High Court. He set up the GoFundMe page in the hope of receiving $3 million in donations.
"But GoFundMe Australia released a statement to the Herald on Monday saying the Folau appeal breached the organisation's terms and conditions.
""Today we will be closing Israel Folau’s campaign and issuing full refunds to all donors. After a routine period of evaluation, we have concluded that this campaign violates our terms of service," GoFundMe Australia regional manager Nicola Britton said.
""As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity.
""While we welcome GoFundMes engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.
""In the days since Mr Folau's campaign launched, more than one million dollars have been donated to hundreds of other campaigns, large and small, across Australia. Those acts of kindness are the heart of GoFundMe.
Wow! Well, Now it begins. the Bible tells us it would.
In fact this may happen soon"
UN poised to launch global ban on all criticism of Islam
The vocal Muslim official wanted to make it clear that absolutely no negative opinions of Islam are to be tolerated.
Guterres said the overarching goal of the U.N. plan is to identify, prevent and confront what the U.N. and Islamic nations consider “hate speech.”
"It was up to us to explain to the western people the amount of pain they cause us when they ridicule or mock our Holy Prophet," Khan declared at OIC’s 14th Islamic Summit in Mecca, Saudi Arabia – Islam’s holy city – according to Gulf News Asia.
"I would like to say from this platform that in the forums like the United Nations and the forums like the European Union, we must explain to them that they cannot hurt the sentiments of 1.3 billion people under the garb of freedom of expression."

I have some good news - God appears to have blessed the legal fund appeal for this courageous Christian man, so after gofundme kicked him off thier site after raising $650,000, the re- launched appeal shot past $2,100,000 and was still going, before they had to stop the appeal because they would have *too much* money.
Its amazing to watch God pour out a blessing like this. Many Australians are 100% had enough of PC, and are looking to protect thier God-given freedom, and this case is a test case in many ways.
This case is a lightning rod for the fight to maintain religious freedom in Australia.
The media of course are saying its all about christians attacking the LGwhatsit movement due to sour grapes, but so what? No one cares what the marxist media think anymore.
Please continue to over this case. Its turning into a similar case similar to Ezekiel 38, where God puts hooks in the jaw of Gog, and draws him into a fight Gog ( Satan ) cant win.....
Daniel: Thank you, Kelly!
