Deadly bushfires are God’s response to same-sex marriage says ex-Australia rugby star

Homophobic former Australian rugby player Israel Folau has claimed that the country's bushfires, which have taken the lives of six people, are God’s judgement on same-sex marriage and abortion laws.


Falou, a Christian, was sacked by Rugby Australia earlier this year for making anti-gay remarks on social media. 

He made the bushfires claim during a sermon he gave in his Sydney church yesterday (Sunday 17 November), saying that the nation needed to “repent” after having gone against “God’s word” by passing abortion and same-sex marriage laws.


"Look how rapid, these bushfires, these droughts, all these things have come, in a short period of time,” he said. “You think it's a coincidence or not?"

Folau, 30, is currently in the process of suing Rugby Australia over his dismissal. He is claiming that his contract was unlawfully terminated due to his religious beliefs.
