Israel Folau Causes Fresh Controversy With Horrible Homophobic Comment


You might remember a few months back Wallabies fullback Israel Folau posted a controversial Tweet in relation to the gay marriage vote in Australia, stating he does not condone same sex marriage.

The 28-year-old Waratahs star is a devout Christian, who grew up as a Mormon before leaving to join a smaller church in 2011. In the tweet he said he loves and respects everyone for their opinions but that he would not support same sex marriage.

Now whether you agree with his views on same sex marriage or not (Gareth Thomas certainly did not), he’s perfectly entitled to them. If he doesn’t want to support same sex marriage, then so be it.

But he’s gone too far this time as far as a lot of people are concerned. In his original tweet above he says he ‘loves and respect all people for who they are and their opinions.’

Yet now in an Instagram post when asked about “gods plan for gay people”, Folau responded:

“HELL.. Unless they repent their sins and turn to God.”

Understandably his now deleted comment, has not gone down well.
