After the Wallabies star, Israel Folau was fired at a religious post on Instagram, Mr. Joyce wants a specific law to stop employers from punishing someone for religious beliefs.

& # 39; You cannot include people's beliefs in a contract, & # 39; he said to the Sydney Morning Herald.

& # 39; Your own opinion about who God is, where God is, or whether there is a God, must remain your own personal opinion and not be part of a contractual obligation. & # 39;

Folau, 30, was in hot water after an Instagram post in April that said homosexuals are sinners and go to hell.

He did not have a clause in his religion contract – but was deemed to have violated Rugby Australia's Code of Conduct by everyone not equal, fair and dignified & # 39; to treat.

Speaking of the dismissal, Joyce said: “People were a little shocked that someone could lose his job because of what he believed. This made everyone feel a bit uncomfortable and uncomfortable. & # 39;

After Folau was fired, Rugby Australia's chief Raelene Castle said the code accepted that termination was inevitable, but it was still a & # 39; painful situation & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Rugby Australia did not choose to be in this situation, but the position of Rugby Australia remains that through its actions Israel has left us no choice but to pursue this course of action, & # 39; Miss Castle said in a statement.

& # 39; I communicated directly with the players to make it clear that Rugby Australia fully supports their right to their own beliefs and that nothing has happened that has changed that.

& # 39; But when we talk about inclusiveness in our game, we also talk about respecting differences. & # 39;
