'The door is closing': Izzy tweets religion again

It appears the furore surrounding Israel Folau’s religious views is only fuelling him to share more of his controversial thoughts.

The superstar Waratahs fullback has again taken to Twitter to share a message to his 124,000 followers, this time asking people to come to the Lord while they’re still alive.

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.”

And to add insult to injury for Folau, the DJ at Christchurch Stadium decided to play ‘YMCA’ by The Village People (a well known gay anthem) over the loudspeakers as the game was finishing.

Fans at the ground loved the brutal trolling, and many took to social media to comment on it:
