The forced resignation of Essendon Football Club’s newly appointed CEO, Andrew Thorburn, due to his Christian beliefs and church involvement, reveals that Christian views on marriage and human rights for the unborn will not be tolerated by the club.

Essendon’s president, David Barham, made it clear that traditional Christian views, accepted by millions of everyday Australians, are contrary to the club’s values.

Andrew Thorburn’s recent statement should be ominous for all Australians. He lamented that his “personal Christian faith is not tolerated or permitted in the public square, at least by some and perhaps by many.” 

The club’s so-called tolerance and diversity are only extended to those who reject the Christian perspective on sexuality and abortion.

Let the Essendon Football Club know that their value system does not align with fair-minded Australians. Having different opinions on sexuality or life is not hatred or bigotry.

If Essendon Football Club is correct, any employer could target any employee's church attendance.

Act now to send a strong message to Essendon and the AFL. Only with your voice speaking truth in the public square will we see change.
