Even leaguies don’t discriminate against gays

Why is it that only fundies discriminate against gays? What kind of warped view of god means that you think all gods children arent loved equally?

Not even the hardened men of Rugby League discriminate against gays now. How come they can’t have marriage equality too?

Inspired by Australia’s first openly homosexual footballer, rugby league referee Matt Cecchin has revealed he is gay.

The grand final referee is the only league player or official to come out in public as gay since retired front-rower Ian Roberts did about 16 years ago.

Cecchin said he had never been discriminated against on the field and wanted to encourage young gay people to feel comfortable with their sexuality.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
