What do you think about the Folau law?
I mean he was a bit dumb and his ideas are bollocks but shouldn't he be allowed to say 'my God won't like people being gay and deal with them when they are dead'?
It's not the same as saying 'stone the cunts to death now' because they dissed my God is it?
No sanction in this life and we can all laugh at the idea of post mortem retribution, can't we?
I don't think we should laugh at religious views that affect this life any more than I think we should laugh at laws that stop people playing rugby because they are stupid. There wouldn't be pack left playing it that were the law.
Criticism of Mr Harris may also have a racial context, according to The Korea Times, due to his Japanese background.
The ambassador was born in Japan to a Japanese mother and an American US Navy officer.
“There are many Korean independence leaders that have moustaches, but no-one seems to focus on that,” Mr Harris said in response to criticism of his facial hair.
“All I can say is that every decision I make is based on the fact that I'm the American ambassador to Korea, not the Japanese-American ambassador to Korea.”
When asked if he would consider shaving off the moustache to improve relations with South Koreans, Mr Harris shrugged off the suggestion.
“You would have to convince me that somehow the moustache is viewed in a way that hurts our relationship,” he replied.
