Recently I read some news about the Australian Rugby Player Israel Folau (note above), specifically about his recent posts towards homosexuality. To be honest, I don’t agree with the way he portrays this particular post (I haven’t really tried to look at the full context of the situation, but I do know that this isn’t the first time that he’s posted online in regards to homosexuality; he expressed his disagreement with the SSM vote in Australia a couple of years back, and it was much more well meaning in my opinion, compared to this)
I was wondering how someone could defend (as a scenario) their faith from situations like this, but I wanted to go further as to ask if it MIGHT be a good idea to maybe teach someone (like Folau) about Apologetics and how they can use it in the media, and has this ever been done before? I understand this can be easily solved by looking into the context of the stuff that Folau has said, but has anyone ever effectively (besides apologists) defended the faith when faced under issues of secular media? Would this be a good idea for ministry?
