 ‘Jesus was on the side of the marginalised’ says Wallabies’ captain David Pocock

The Christian captain of Australia's national rugby union club has voiced his support for gay marriage.

‘It's my understanding that Jesus was on the side of the marginalised and the oppressed,’ David Pocock said in a statement released by Australian Marriage Equality. ‘And also that God is love. So as a Christian I can't just stand in silence on the issue of marriage equality. My faith necessitates that I advocate for it.’
