When Australian rugby star Israel Folau’s team contract was terminated after he voiced the principles of his Christian faith, he turned to GoFundMe Australia to crowdsource funds for his legal action against Rugby Australia.

Three days later, the popular fundraising platform took down his page with plans to refund all donors. 

“As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity,” GoFundMe Australia manager Nicola Britton said, according to The Guardian. 

After his fundraising page was shut down, a “non-party partisan, non-denominational” group called Australian Christian Lobby reached out to Folau with the opportunity to host his fundraiser and donated $100,000 to the cause. The fundraiser raised over $1.5 million as of noon Tuesday.

Folau, a former Wallabies player, had his $4 million contract with the Australian rugby team terminated in early April after he posted a meme on Instagram that reads: “Warning drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolaters, Hell awaits you. Repent! Only Jesus saves.” 

On June 6, Folau’s legal representatives confirmed that he filed a lawsuit with the Australian Fair Work Commission, claiming his contract was unlawfully terminated because of his religious beliefs. 

On June 21, Folau went to Instagram again to post the link to a GoFundMe campaign he had started to fund the lawsuit, soliciting his followers to support his legal battle. He shared that he and his wife, Maria, had already spent $100,000 on his case.

“So far Maria and I have used over $100K of our savings and I am willing to do what it takes for this cause. But to continue I need to prioritise funding for my legal case,” Folau said in the post, adding:  

To those who believe in the right to practise religion without fear of discrimination in the workplace, here is my ask: Stand with me. I’ve put the link in my bio. If you can and choose to donate, thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless. #standwithizzy

Three days after the Instagram post, GoFundMe Australia removed Folau’s page Monday morning. The page had received $750,000 in pledges as of Sunday night. 

Britton said the page was removed because it violated GoFundMe’s terms of service.

“After a routine period of evaluation, we have concluded that this campaign violates our terms of service,” Britton said to The Guardian.

She added that the crowdsourcing platform exists “to help people help others,” and that “while we welcome GoFundMes engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.

Gay Basketball Player Decided to Come Out Straight by Putting LGBT's Down Looses Job

  Cyd Ziegler from  Outsports reported this story and Iam including it here. This is such a strange world when you deal when dishonest people that try to wing their personalities to what they think others will accept. If you have to declare you are straight followed by profanities and putting the LGBT community down you are a sorry human being and you don't rally know what you are because sexuality is part of us; some of us know who we and first we accept ourselves and then on the same coin we accept others. It is how well we accept us that allow us to accept the ones belonging to another team.

Basketball player and coach Camille LeNoir has filed a lawsuit against New Mexico State University, claiming the school rescinded an offer to coach because she used to be gaybut is now straight.
Sadly, her lawsuit intends to impugn the LGBT community and doesn’t begin to represent the real reasons no fair-minded coaching staff would welcome her with open arms.
LeNoir played basketball for USC before being drafted by the Washington Mystics (she never played for them). She lived for several years in same-sex relationships, but according to the anti-gay video that drove New Mexico State to their decision, she was “delivered” from homosexuality by god.
"When I ended that last relationship, I was still in love with the girl. Nothing was going wrong. And [god] crested upon my heart so much, I couldn't even sleep at night sometimes thinking about it. And it was just really difficult for me to deal with because I was never at peace. Never at peace. And I thank god for that because, like I said earlier, if it wasn't for that I would still be in it. And I would have been completely given over to that. So I've been delivered from it for two years, been going strong for the Lord. Got really serious about my walk after that. That wasn't the only sin I struggled with. I just thought if I got rid of homosexuality, if I got out of that lifestyle, I was good."
OK, fine. She was gay, and god saved her. Certainly there are issues here for someone trying to be a basketball coach, given that she admits herself that there are many lesbian and bisexual women in college basketball.
But she didn’t stop there.
“I knew [homosexuality] was wrong. I knew what Christ did for me. It was just straight-up disobedience on my behalf, not caring about what god thought. I wasn't thinking about my soul or eternity."
So now lesbians and bisexual women are disobedient to god. And there are lots of LGBT women in basketball. What head coach would want this attitude on his team? How would this destructive viewpoint, which she could intend to push on her players, help the Aggies win basketball games?
Oh, there’s more.
"Competition came from satan, not from god. God told us to love each other, to walk in humility. Everything that Jesus preached, from the sermon on the mount, contradicts everything the sports atmosphere promotes. Everything."
So now the very existence of the sport she wants to coach is a descendant of satan. 
For LGBT people, she added this clincher:
"If you're in a same-sex relationship, it's not worth losing your soul."
The school reacted in an obvious manner. From the Washington Post
In court filings, New Mexico State says that LeNoir’s feelings about homosexuality shared in the video “would have had an adverse impact” on her “ability to effectively coach and recruit players who identify as LGBT.”
LeNoir wanted to coach female basketball players, but she said most of them were in a sinful relationship and the very sport they were playing was derived from satan.
And she wonders why she was fired? She’s actually suing the school claiming it’s because she no longer dates women? 
In an interesting twist, LeNoir claimed that her being straight was perceived by New Mexico State head coach Mark Trakh as a detriment to recruiting women’s basketball players. Again, from the Washington Post:
She said Trakh told her “the fact that I’m no longer homosexual would affect recruiting.”
For what it’s worth, the interview in which LeNoir said all of these things was with a guy who has called Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor a Satanist.

Brazilian Soccer Player Appears with Chechen Gay Killer Ramzan Kadyrov

I saw this picture in Portugal Gay (online paper) and immediately I got very nauseous. What would it take for an international ex-soccer player accustomed to seeing different types of people and as a black man with a face only his mama and the whom ever he pays for sex can love to give this killer and self-described hater to appear in the same picture??? I guess because he is an ex and otherwise could not get on the paper. As I write this column there are gays in Chechnya both being secretly tortured and kill in labor camps and physically and mentally abused hiding in the rest of that hellish place. There is plenty here on  to go with what Kadyrov is doing to Gay men in Chechnya in case little R😖naldito needs to educate himself.

I'm sure Ronaldo has been the target of racism himself.  I imagine he is got no self-respect or may be he just only reads Chinese fortune cookies and is not aware of what goes on in the rest of the world besides maybe soccer and the menu at McD's. Like they say in the neighborhood where I grew up, What a sack of s***  no wonder they appear together. Can this Picture be photoshopped? Anything is possible and if so my apology will be forthcoming but it does not seem that way. 

"The Brazilian player, who played for Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Milan and the Brazilian national team, raved fans with the publication of the photo over the weekend. In the photo it seems all the people are happy with Ramzan Kadyrov, the President of the Republic of Chechnya, who has been accused of promoting the persecution not only of homosexuals but also of all people with sexual orientation or minority gender identity."

Ronaldinho Gaucho visited Grozny, Russia, to support the relaunch of the city's football club although it is unclear how much he will have received for the event.
Well received by all, here in Grozny. Special too, come from so far and receive so much affection !!! Thanks for everything FC Akhmat Grozny @ kadyrov_95 and @ cherhigov_95.

Repudiation comments were not long in coming ...
It's disgusting that you let yourself be photographed with this killer. You have no shame and no respect for yourself. How much did they pay you to ruin your reputation?

Andre Gray “Is it Me or are There Gays Everywhere?” So Sorry Now!

(Andre Gray in pic) It might be ok to be a homophobe when nobody knows you,
 is different  when you have fans that pay money to see you play
The Burnley striker Andre Gray has apologized after homophobic tweets in which he appeared to condone killing gay people were shared on social media.

One of the messages, written in 2012 when Gray played for non-league Hinckley United, read:  . That tweet, and others containing similar terms, were deleted on Saturday, soon after they started re-circulating online.

Tweet from Gray on
“Is it me or are there gays everywhere?
jan 9 2012 1:31am

Responding to the backlash online, the 25-year-old – who scored Burnley’s second goal against Liverpool – issued a statement, writing: “First I want to offer a sincere and unreserved apology to anybody I may have offended in relation to these tweets. The tweets were posted four years ago when I was a completely different person to the man I am now.
“I was at a very different point in my life back then – one that I’ve worked hard to move on from … I have experienced a lot over the past four years and have had to take responsibility for a number of things in my life which has enabled me to mature and grow as a person.”

He added: “I realise I have made some big mistakes, none more so than these tweets, but I would like to stress that I’ve worked incredibly hard to completely transform my life since that time. To clarify, I do not hold the beliefs written in those tweets whatsoever.

“I can assure everybody that I am absolutely not homophobic, and as said previously I can only apologise and ask for forgiveness to anyone I offended. Thankfully I am not the guy I was back then and will continue to work hard both on and off the pitch to become a better person.”

Responding to the original messages, the campaign group Stonewall told the BBC: “While these tweets are of course historic, unfortunately homophobic attitudes and language continue to be an issue in sport, whether that’s on the pitch, in the terraces or on social media.

“It’s extremely important that we work together to kick these attitudes out of sport and create supportive and inclusive environments that enable everyone to feel accepted without exception.”

The Rangers midfielder Joey Barton, however, backed Gray against the criticism, tweeting: “I know @AndreGray7 as well as anyone. And he is 100% not homophobic. One of the nicest lads you could meet. Who hasn’t said dumb things when they were young? … He should be held up as an example to kids from troubled backgrounds.”
Burnley later issued a statement along similar lines, saying: “The club would like to make it clear we do not condone any discriminatory behavior by any employee. The club also fully supports the FA’s Football v Homophobia campaign.

“However, as Andre has made clear in a statement on his personal account, these are social posts from four years ago, and in this time he has completely transformed his life. The player has also apologised and denied he is, in any way, shape or form homophobic. Burnley Football Club will make no further statement on this matter.”

In June the Coventry City defender Chris Stokes was given a one-game ban and fined by the Football Association for tweeting a homophobic term. Stokes also posted an apology online, calling his decision to send the message “a brainless moment from me … I’m really disappointed in myself for using that term. I’m not homophobic at all.”

NBA Pulling All Star Game Out of Charlotte Due to Anti LGBT Bill

Without any movement by state legislators in North Carolina to change newly enacted laws targeted at the LGBT community, the NBA is pulling the 2017 All-Star Game out of Charlotte, league sources told The Vertical.

The NBA is focused on the New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center as the host for All-Star Weekend and the All-Star Game on Feb. 19, league sources told The Vertical.

For now, there are still other cities trying to lure the All-Star Game, sources said.

A formal announcement on the NBA’s withdrawal out of Charlotte is expected as soon as this week, league sources said Thursday.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver had threatened to move All-Star Weekend out of Charlotte unless a discriminatory North Carolina law aimed at the state’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community was changed – and time to do so has run out because of the logistics and planning the NBA needs to run its marquee midseason event, league sources said.

The issue is centered on North Carolina’s House Bill 2, a law that mandates transgender people use public restrooms corresponding to the sex listed on their birth certificates. The law also omits LGBT people from North Carolina’s anti-discrimination protections, forbids local governments from widening LGBT protections and excludes all forms of workplace discrimination lawsuits from North Carolina state courts.

Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan had been counting on All-Star Weekend as a signature event for his franchise, and the economic impact of losing the All-Star Game for the franchise and region promises to be dramatic.

The NBA had discussed moving the All-Star Game to the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, sources said, but scheduling conflicts at the facility became part of the reason the idea never advanced past high-level league conversations during the Las Vegas summer league this month, sources said.

New Orleans hosted the All-Star Game in 2008 and 2014
