There’s Christians and Christians
Marnus is kind of the wild-eyed ‘all praise our Lord and Saviour’ type, which isn’t exactly something that builds someone’s credibility in modern Australia
Atheists and anti-religion types are easily triggered.Based on what, the fact that he’s not ashamed of his belief? I’ve read dozens of interviews with him. I’ve heard it mentioned maybe twice. And yeah the pretty obvious affection his teammates have for him indicates that it really must be at a catastrophic level in the change room as well.
Why does this bother people so much?
based on the fact he is a very active member of a happy-clappy Baptist mega church in Brisbane
There are many things that make people question the good judgement of a potential leader, and being a fervent follower of sky fairies happens to be one of themOh I can definitely see why that would upset you it must present a huge imposition on your personal well-being. I’m sure all the non-believers who regularly accidentally find their way in there are very affronted that a place used by people specifically to share and practice their beliefs is being used by it’s congregation for that exact purpose.
What he should do is be a philanderer, drug cheat, drug user, abuser, match fixer, drink driver, alcoholic, violence-prone bogan like 50 per cent of the rest of Australian sportsmen that we hold up as heroes.

i'm sure bradman was dropped once or twice as well.
still relatively early days for marnus, and his first class average, suggests his test average will dip, but he is hot at the moment.
on target to end up alongside players with 6000+ runs and ave of 50+ (bradman, g.chappell, ponting, m.hussey, s.waugh, border, hayden, smith) and end up in our top 10 best bats.
symonds was long gone by the point Clarke was skipperI think it shows why punter was a great captain and leader he embraced all personalities no matter how different you were to say other players he made the effort to get his know his teammates and see what made them tick.
A prime example is look at watto and symonds record under him compared to clarke.
