Employment lawyer Josh Bornstein says that Jesus would be fired on social media in the middle of the Israel Folau sage
One of Australia & # 39; s leading employment lawyers has suggested that Jesus Christ be fired as Israel Folau for violating a modern social media clause in the workplace.
Josh Bornstein, chief lawyer for Maurice Blackburn, has spoken out because the fired Wallaby has raised more than $ 1.7 million to fight Rugby Australia.
The class action prosecutor criticized social-social clauses in the workplace and stated that Jesus Christ should be out of work today because of & # 39; unemployment that has become ridiculously high in the labor market & # 39 ;.

& # 39; The code and workplace policy conditions now require employees to be effective brand ambassadors on a 24-7 basis and meet requirements that Jesus Christ would not be able to meet if he were still moving among us & # 39 ;, he told the ABC & # 39; s 7.30 program on Tuesday.
& # 39; If Jesus Christ were still moving among us, he would be unemployed. & # 39;
He spoke out when the Australian Christian lobby raised more than $ 1.7 million in just two days to help Folau defeat Rugby Australia in the Fair Work Commission during his resignation in May due to his four-year $ 4 million contract.
Starting Wednesday morning, the crowdfunding campaign had collected more than $ 1.7 million, or more than double the $ 765,000 that Folau had raised on Go Fund Me in four days before the American company closed the deal.
Folau tries to raise 3 million dollars from his supporters, despite being a millionaire with an extensive real estate portfolio, to campaign for religious freedom.
Mr. Bornstein said that Folau & # 39; s lawsuit could run for $ 300,000.

& # 39; I think the $ 3 million idea for his business is ridiculous, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; That case could be conducted for a fraction of that amount and function very effectively. & # 39;
However, the ACL raises extra money in case Folau & # 39; s legal issue has to go to the High Court.
Folau also had an unlikely defender in the left-wing federal Labor MP Stephen Jones, who in vain moved the account of a private member in favor of same-sex marriage in 2012.
Although he disagreed with the sentiments of the fired rugby union about homosexuals, he said it was a mistake for Rugby Australia to fire him.
& # 39; If we try to push those opinions underground, or somehow try to take away people's ability to express their religious views, I find that not useful at all & # 39 ;, said he Tuesday against ABC Radio National.

Without referring to Folau & # 39; s Polynesian ethnicity, Mr. Jones said that support for multiculturalism requires him to accept different views.
& # 39; This is what multiculturalism looks like, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; It seems that people from different cultures, different beliefs, different backgrounds come to our country and express different opinions, even if they fundamentally disagree with the views I have. & # 39;
Folau was fired last month to twitter and post on Instagram that & # 39; drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolaters & # 39; repent for their sins and turn to Jesus Christ.
Despite paraphrasing New Testament quotes from the Corinthians in the Bible, Rugby Australia, chief executive Raelene Castle, considered them anti-gay.

Mr. Bornstein is described by Maurice Blackburn as & # 39; one of the best employment lawyers in the world & # 39 ;.
Last year he represented ABC journalist Osman Faruqi when he launched defamation against right-wing media commentator Mark Latham, who is now a New South Wales One Nation MP.
Faruqi, the son of Greens senator Mehreen Faruqi, won over forcing Mr. Latham, a former Federal Labor leader, to pay $ 100,000 in legal fees for suggesting his tweets about white people who had encouraged Islamic terrorism.
Mr. Bornstein has been linked to leftist goals during his prevented legal career, as a result of which he saw the Maritime Union of Australia against Patrick Stevedores during the waterfront dispute in 1998.
