Being called into order for his homophobia on numerous times has done little to sway Australian rugby start Israel Folau from his problematic beliefs.
The Wallaby fullback has attracted mostly negative publicity with his off-the-field persona, as he has gained notoriety for his love of anti-gay artwork, mostly inspired by religious scripture.
On Wednesday he raised hell once more by sharing on his Instagram account an image which lists a group of “undesirables” destined for the fiery underworld.
The image listed drunks, homosexuals, liars and thieves among others as people who needed to repent or face eternal damnation.
“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,” he captioned the post.

Israel Folau: A history of bigotry
Folau is fresh of a similar controversy, having been handed a lifelin by Rugby Australia, after saying God’s plan for gay people was “hell, unless they repent”.
He first gained notoriety when shared his views, slamming gay marriage, shortly after he had tied the knot.
The 29-year-old’s latest anti-gay rant was not the only thing he took issue with on social media, as he also expressed his opposition to the State of Tasmania allowing teenagers the right to change the gender on their birth certificates without parental consent.
The devil has blinded so many people in this world, REPENT and turn away from your evil ways. Turn to Jesus Christ who will set you free. pic.twitter.com/BWSWTMye98
