Statement on Israel Folau

Anglican Diocese of Sydney
Media Statement

The way Israel Folau is treated will be a test of Australian Rugby’s ‘inclusion’ policy. 

Israel Folau should be free to hold and express traditional, Biblical views on marriage and sexuality without being penalized – just as other players have spoken out with their differing views. 

Rugby Australia has said ‘rugby is a game for all, regardless of sexuality, race, religion or gender’ and it would be hypocritical for administrators to censure a player for expressing views which spring from his own faith and conscience.
