Can you say that you would be able to face the end of your career with similar equanimity or would you cuck and submit to the devils?
Australian rugby star Israel Folau is facing a ban from the national side after claiming that gay people would go to hell. The 30-year-old full-back, who is Australia’s best-paid rugby player, posted on Instagram last week to say that ‘hell awaits’ for ‘drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators’.
Rugby chiefs have said the homophobic comments ‘warrant termination of his employment contract’, which is believed to be worth around £1.1million a year. But Folau has refused to back down, saying it was up to God whether he would carry on playing and insisting he would rather face the end of his career than retract his comments.
The row has also engulfed England’s Billy Vunipola, who ‘liked’ the post on Instagram and later defended the Australian player, remarking that ‘man was made for woman to procreate’.
When asked if the fallout has made him reconsider his comments, Folau, a devout Christian, replied: ‘Absolutely not. I’ll stand on what the Bible says. I share it with love. I can see the other side of the coin where people’s reactions are the total opposite to how I’m sharing it. First and foremost, I live for God now. Whatever He wants me to do, I believe His plans for me are better than whatever I can think. If that’s not to continue on playing, so be it. In saying that, obviously I love playing footy and if it goes down that path I’ll definitely miss it. But my faith in Jesus Christ is what comes first.’
This is why Christians should never have permitted the godless to push the dishonest concept of “freedom of speech”. The whole point of creating that nonexistent freedom was to eradicate the Christian blasphemy laws in force throughout the West in order to replace them with the Satanic equivalent.
