Australian rugby star opposes same-sex marriage on Twitter
NSW Waratahs and Australia rugby star Israel Folau has tweeted that he does not condone same-sex marriage, a day after the Wallabies pledged support for the Yes vote in the postal survey.
The is a devout Christian, who grew up as a Mormon before leaving to join a smaller church in 2011.
His views on the issue are at odds with a number of his Wallabies teammates who are in favour of the proposed reform.
Australia is readying itself for a referendum by postal vote on the issue of same-sex marriage in the coming weeks, and Falau’s tweet attracted widespread derision.
Folau said: “I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions. but personally, I will not support gay marriage.”
In his tweet on Wednesday afternoon he said he loves and respects everyone for their opinions but that he would not support same-sex marriage.
He followed with peace sign, heart and prayer emojis.
His views differ from teammate David Pocock, also a committed Christian, who is holding off on marriage until the Australian government approves same-sex marriage.
Cricket Australia, the NRL and the FFA have all joined the Wallabies in backing same-sex marriage.
