“God is speaking to us.”
Former Wallabies fullback Israel Folau claims Australia’s devastating bushfire crisis and record-breaking drought are God’s punishment for legalising same-sex marriage and abortion.
The outspoken devout Christian, who had his $4 million Rugby Australia terminated earlier this year following a homophobic outburst on social media, said the timing of the bushfires was not a “coincidence” while delivering a sermon at his church in Sydney.
“You have changed the law and changed the ordinance of these things,” he said.
“Look how rapid these bushfires, these droughts, all these things have come in a short period of time. You think it is a coincidence or not?
“They have changed that law and legalised same-sex marriage and now those things are OK in society, going against the laws of what God says.
“Abortion — it is OK now to murder and kill infants, unborn children, and they think that to be OK.”
The former Rugby League star went on to say that the drought and bushfires were God’s way of telling Australia “You need to repent” and that is was only a “taste” of what’s to come if they continue their ways.
“What you see out there in the world — it’s only a little taste of what God’s judgment is like,” Folau added
“The news is saying these bushfires are the worst we’ve ever seen in Australia — they haven’t seen anything.
“God is speaking to us. Speaking to you to repent and to turn away from this.
“We look back to what God (has) done to Sodom and Gomorrah — it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed that city because of the sin that they were living in.”
