Pocock says what Chauvel and Robertson won’t

How hard is it to say “Gay Marriage?” Not very if you play for Australia. David Pocock says what Chauvel and Robertson are too afraid to say, in plain language.

Support for gay marriage is his most recent, publicly stated cause.

“I don’t see what the big deal is with the whole gay marriage debate in Australia,” he told the New Zealand Herald last week.

“Being brought up in a Christian home and still identifying as Christian, I get pretty annoyed with the Christian lobbies around the world who say gay marriage destroys families and all that kind of rubbish.

“They claim to follow someone who always stood up for the oppressed and marginalised.

“I guess it is a fear of the unknown – if you talk to someone who doesn’t like gay people you can almost guarantee that they don’t know too many.

How awesome is it that Australian Rugby players are more confortable talking about human rights than Labour politicians?
