The Catholic Church is facing a growing backlash after the coronavirus pandemic brought on by the coronas pandemic.
The Australian Catholic Church’s Australian network is already dealing with the fallout.
AFL chief executive Greg O’Brien said the league’s chief executive Gillon McLachlan and his wife, Kate, were concerned about the growing number of people in their church who have had a serious case of coronaviruses.
“It’s not an issue that’s new, and we know it’s very hard for people to accept,” Mr O’Briens said.
Gillian McLachlin said she had asked for the league to remove any mention of the pandemic from its website.
It was not clear whether the league had complied.
An AFL spokesperson said the AFL had already removed a reference to the pandemics from the league website.
