Standing on speaker's corner - fill your boots as long as it is not incitement.
Is he representing himself or the club? It is a personal account - not a corporate one. Why should speakers corner be any different?
His account is here by the way - https://twitter.com/IzzyFolau
- you'd have thought it was pretty clear what he thinks and its likely he had some opposition from it. He doesn't pick out homosexuality for special treatment - it was part of a pretty long list.
Does the club promote / endorse everything else he has posted? If not - why do they care about this? No-one associates what he posts with the club - they only associate it it with him.
The image he posted was a quote from 1st Corinthians Ch 6 vs 9&10
It is something that was written almost 2000 years ago, ironically when people were firing lawsuits at each other.
When read in context, it basically says, others will get their comeuppance at the end of time so don't try to judge them, argue with them, and fire lawsuits at them now. Its actually about NOT judging people yourself - instead let God do that.
It can also be read as a reminder that once you decide to accept Christ, you shouldn't be doing those things, but that isn't what the passage is about.
The next section of that chapter reminds us we shouldn't be driven by sexual desires, but higher things. I suggest in the world we live in - that's probably just as relevant now as ever.
On @Miscellaneous not seeing a religiously inspired view as legitimate - can you note the irony of your own intolerance in that? Everyone is entitled to their views. If you think they are wrong, you can try to change them but dismissing views helps no-one.
