Israel Folau stokes fresh outrage
AUSTRALIAN rugby union Israel Folau, recently sacked for his homophobia, has now directed his hostility towards transsexuals.
Speaking at the Truth of Jesus Christ Church in Kenthurst, New South Wales, the deranged Pentecostal Christian said in a sermon that was posted as a video on his church’s Facebook page:
They are allowing young kids in primary school, to be able to have the permission to change their gender if they want, by taking away the permission of their parents …
This is what the devil’s trying to do to instill into this government, into this world, into society, and it’s slowly happening.
They say that a man and a man should be able to be married and there is nothing wrong with it. This buys into the theme of pleasing man rather than pleasing God and standing up for the truth.
The 30-year-old has a history of courting controversy by promoting religious-themed homophobia.
In April, he posted a picture which stated ‘Hell awaits’ homosexuals and other sinners on his Instagram account.
As a result, Folau was fired by Rugby Australia after refusing to remove or apologise for the post. He is currently suing the governing body over their decision.
Though raised a Mormon, Folau has been an active member of the World Assemblies of God Fellowship since 2011, a global coalition of churches with around 70 million members.
