He said that list of people will go to hell, that's not violence that is a 'fact' in his religion.

You can't have it both ways, either we should be allowed to call out religion for the trash it is or he should be allowed to have his views. Can't just accept the parts that one side of politics says is ok.
Why is he putting it up on social media aside from confronting people? Social media is a public forum, and he's uploaded it to spout this nonsense. He's free to believe what he wants, and he's free to say it. Nobody is dragging him off to prison for it. But Rugby Australia is well within its rights to tell him his time is up.

Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 (Victoria)

"A person must not, on the ground of the religious belief or activity of another person or class of persons, engage in conduct that incites hatred against, serious contempt for, or revulsion or severe ridicule of, that other person or class of persons"

Once again- I'm flattered you think my conduct has incited hatred, serious contempt, serious ridicule etc. but the reality is the only person who appears to be offended is you.

Stop being a snowflake.

Oh and to be clear- I don't think what either Falou or I said was hate speech.
You think I'm offended? Stop being a condescending twat. This has been a mildly engaging conversation on my behalf until you got uptight.

By your own provided definition though, describing someone's beliefs as "fundamentalist god-bothering ********" can surely be filed under contempt. Anyway, whatever, jog on.

Tulip no one is arguing what he said isn't stupid nor by extension he isn't stupid.

BUT he didn't attack anyone, he posted some things that are true in his religion. It wasn't an opinion, all of those are sins in his religion.

Yet if Bernard Tomic posted a photo of a Muslim with her face covered and said those people are scum for how they treat women he would get in trouble.


So on one hand religious beliefs are protected, on the other hand they aren't because they clash with political views.

This still going, sheesh!

Anyway, game of thrones tomorrow.

Now there will some hate speech from those who’ve turned on the show. I dare not bring up Star Wars.

Shudders.
Never seen a second of it and it ****s me that fox footy are paying it as much attention as the footy. Come at me

I’ve never seen a second of it either. And now I never will because I’m so over the fuss and the incessant advertising.

Isn't it the biggest show going? Why does it need cross promotion? Is some campaigner who doesn't really like footy gonna tune in for the pregame now?

Or the Block, or My Kitchen Rules, or Gogglebox, or the Bachelor/Bachelorette, etc etc. Hard to fathom that people actually watch that sort of thing.
MAFS is a juggernaut, the highest rated show in Australia ever. Those other shows don't even get close, it's crazy.

Hilariously, before it wrapped up it was followed by The Footy Show which has suffered its lowest ratings ever. They were having something like a 1.5m drop off between the timeslots.

So a show about people making terrible life choices is the highest rated show in Australia? I guess I can see a bit of appeal in that, but that's pretty damn sad. I pretty much only turn the TV on to watch sport or a bit of Rage.

No it sums up modern Australia perfectly. Watching a bunch of people do nothing to become famous.

I know for a fact that three chowderheads I work with watch those things because they routinely use up about 1 hour of taxpayer funded productive time to swap notes each day plus bore everyone within earshot to tears. I wish they could take up smoking or bigfooty posting and waste time and money in the traditional manner.

While I’m here, have any of you ever boned out a chicken before?

Also have you stuffed said chicken and sewn it back together? What I’m trying to suss out is exactly how furious and fed up I’m likely to get this afternoon.

Tried to bone some chicken cutlets once. Suffice to say unless you have incredibly sharp knife I wouldn't bother.

I suspect that’s true. I bought a new boning knife special like and managed the job okay after watching 15 YouTube clips. Took 2 quarters of Carlton v SUNS (Lol Carlton) and Christ only knows how people do this in 10 minutes.

Foxtel whoring itself our like one of little fingers girls. This is just a shameless attempt to get subscribers. I doubt the commentators really want to be forced do this. However if asked those who watch the show would likely embrace it.

Lady Crimson is the lettered one, she had read the books and recommended that I , as a mouth breather would the show. As, if it represented the books in earnest, I would be well pleased.

The show has had its moments but good mostly. Baking bad was the last show I liked so much.

Camping, drinking, so whatever. :drunk:

Best thing i know bout chicken and boning is you twist 1 bone and pull it out the wing then pop the rest in ya mouth and pull it out clean as a butterbean left hook.

I have 3/4 of a bottle of green label left in the cupboard. I drank everything else around it. Same deal, mediocre drop.
Yeah all the Johnny Walker stuff is really **** I’ve never understood the brands attraction when the product is crap, but maybe it’s just the first whiskey many of us couldn’t afford
