Millionaire property owner Israel Folau has launched a new Go Fund Me campaign calling on his friends and followers to give generously so that he can get a new full back tattoo quoting the scripture Leviticus 18-20.
“God has spoken to me and told me to spread the word and what better way to do that than with a full back tattoo,” said Mr Folau. “The idea has been met with much excitement from my friends and family.”
“Why Alan Jones was positively delighted when I told him about it.”
When asked whether he had actually read Leviticus 18-20 in full particularly the part about not working on the sabbath or getting tattoos Mr Folau replied: “No that only applies to gay people not me. The bible is clear, if you are gay you are going to hell. If you are gay you must not work on the sabbath or get tattoos.”
“For non-gay people all you need to do in order to go to heaven is not be gay. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m off to try and thread a camel through the eye of a needle.”

Sad to see the unAustralian join the media feeding frenzy sinking their teeth into Israel Folau. Of course I disagree with his views, as I do with the views of any number of other bigots and wilfully ignorant people in our community. But where is the media backlash against the Christian churches for continuing to allow publication of the hate speech that peppers the Bible? Or is it simply easier for the media to vilify Muslims through selective quoting of the Koran?
That said, Israel needs to be consistent in applying Leviticus 18:20 and add farmers and millennials and teenagers to his list of people who are Hell bound. “When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Do not go over your vineyard a second time or pick up the grapes that have fallen. Leave them for the poor and the foreigner. Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.” “Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.” “Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death.”
