... especially when he is a gay man, even though many other companies also supported gay marriage. And so did their CEOs, gay and straight. Gay marriage was not a cause that only those queers cared about.You mis-read my post - I disagree with Folau, but defend his right to free speech.
I have no particular view on the propriety or otherwise of Qantas' support for gay marriage per se (though I do think that Qantas should stick to flying airplanes and RA to administering games).
I do however think it is legitimate to enquire, as it would in any other circumstances, how the causes supported by the CEO came to be also supported by the company.
A majority of white people supported civil rights for blacks, and a majority of straight people supported civil rights for gay people. You claim you are one of them. If you were Chairman of Qantas, what would you have done differently?
