Catholic Church spokeswoman blasts athlete quoting St. Paul against homosexuality

Catholic Church spokeswoman Dame Lyndsay Freer (Diocese of Auckland, New Zealand) is sorry about a recent social posting made by rugby star Israel Folau, a Pentecostal Christian.

Folau published a poster on Instagram last week reading, “Warning: Drunks, Homosexuals, Adulterers, Liars, Fornicators, Thieves, Atheists, Idolators, Hell Awaits You. Repent! Only Jesus Saves.”

He added: “Those that are living in Sin will end up in hell unless you repent. Jesus Christ loves you and is giving you time to turn away from your sin and come to him.”

Both his team, NSW Warratahs, and Rugby Australia have indicated that they intend “to terminate his contract.”

Dame Lyndsay told the “Herald”: “I feel very sorry for what Israel Folau has done. I don’t think he’s done himself and I don’t think he’s done our Christian faith any great service by saying what he’s said and putting it the way he did.”

And, “Because that’s presenting God as a God of punishment and a God of vengeance, not a God of love, and mercy and compassion.”
"termiante his contract"? What happened to all that "freedom of expression" Western countries always use to justify another abomination? Double standard, much?
Imagine that... A non Catholic more Catholic than the pope. How we have fallen. St Michael defend us in battle.
The athlete was more Catholic than Dame Freer, but that sort of thing is common. Sodomy is a sin crying to Heaven for vengeance.
those that stand for TRUTH will be put down ,with all kinds of ugly names ,that the way evil deceived minds work
The wrath of the world will come down on anyone, especially the well known, for speaking Christian truth. What a world we live in.
Christ became obedient for us unto death, even to the death of the cross. For which cause God also exalted Him and hath given Him a Name which is above all names.
