Open Forum – Sunday

2 June 2019

This post is open to anyone to comment on any topic that isn’t spam, illegal or offensive. All Your NZ posts are open but this one is for you to raise topics that interest you, or you think may interest others.. 

If providing opinions on or summaries of other information also provide a link to that information. Bloggers are welcome to summarise and link to their posts. Comments worth more exposure may be repeated as posts. Comments from other forums can be repeated here, cut and paste is fine.

Your NZ is a mostly political and social issues blog but not limited to that, and views from anywhere on the political spectrum are welcome. Some ground rules:

  • If possible support arguments, news, points or opinions with links to sources and facts.
  • Please don’t post anything illegal, potentially defamatory or abusive.

FIRST TIME COMMENTERS: Due to abuse by a few, first comments under any ID will park in moderation until released (as soon as possible but it can sometimes take a while).

Sometimes comments will go into moderation or spam automatically due to mistyped ID, too many links (>4), or trigger text or other at risk criteria. If they pass muster they will be released as soon as possible (it can sometimes take hours).

    Israel Folau. The story will never be totally clear about who did what when, but as some versions of events come out there may be more interesting things to consider.

    At least he’ll be happy he’s got his God and his Bible, an all-forgiving God of course who will allow lying rugby players to lie and not go to Hell but will condemn all other liars to Hell.

      The Listener editor said that his offence was ‘less hatred than arrogance and a distinctly unChristian lack of empathy….as a private citizen, he can say and post what he likes and face the consequences on his own terms, within the law. As a highly paid sports star, he bears responsibilitiesin exchange for his status, including that of respect for the sport’s supporters….

      The editorial mentions Sonny Bill Williams and Michael Jones who ‘wear their faith with pride and live by it, choosing to set an example without feeling the need to instruct or reproach others.’

      And so on.
