& # 39; Men should value cows more than their wives & # 39 ;: Sunrise & # 39; s David Koch says the Bible is full of & # 39; weird things that make Christians look bad & # 39; if he beats Israel Folau
- Sunrise host David Koch suggested that the Bible was full of irrelevant & # 39; weird things & # 39;
- He explained this to Australian Christian Lobby boss Martyn Iles, an ally of Israel Folau
- The interview took place hours before Folau & # 39; s Go Fund Me call page was closed
Sunrise presenter David Koch has suggested that the Bible is full of strange passages that make Christians look bad during a collision with an important supporter of Israel Folau.
In less than a week, the fired Wallaby star raised $ 764,232 from supporters on Go Fund Me as he prepared to defeat Rugby Australia in the Fair Work Commission.
Australian Christian Lobby director Martyn Iles defended Folau arguing that it was his religious duty to preach the Bible – a month after he was fired over controversial social media reports rejecting homosexuality, adultery, intoxication and sex outside of marriage.
However, Koch paraphrased Old Testament verses to argue that the Bible was incompatible with modern society, hours before Folau & # 39; s GoFundMe page closed.

& # 39; There are weird things in it that are not relevant to today's society and make Christians look bad & # 39 ;, he said Monday morning.
& # 39; There are other parts that say that men should value their goats and cows more than their wives.
& # 39; Divorce is adultery. In short, the size is that someone who has divorces must go to hell. & # 39;
Without mentioning Exodus, Koch also said that the Bible also approved slavery.
& # 39; There are parts of it that approve of slavery, & # 39; he said.

Koch did not conceal how Christians, led by British MP William Wilberforce, campaigned for the abolition of slavery.
Iles responded by suggesting that Koch be a & # 39; messy amalgamation & # 39; composed of biblical verses.
& # 39; I will not come to you for theological advice, Kochie, & # 39; he told the Seven Network host.
Last night, Iles also appeared on The Sunday Project, where Lisa Wilkinson asked him if he thought homosexuals would go to hell.
He replied that everyone was a sinner who needed to repent and disputed the suggestion that Folau had specifically designated people of the same gender.
& # 39; We are all sinners and I don't think it is useful to say that the Israel Folau post focused on homosexuals – it didn't happen, he told Network Ten.

Iles told his Facebook followers on Sunday evening Rugby Australia and Raelene Castle, head of the board, spread Folau in the media.
& # 39; What interest group would you want to destroy the good name of Israel Folau? & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; Answer? Rugby Australia. This is a PR battle just as much as it is a legal battle. & # 39;
He did not produce direct evidence of a conspiracy on his social media video, but claimed that different media channels were planted with stories.
Mr. Iles oversaw how Folau & # 39; s father Eni & # 39; s The Truth of Jesus Christ Church, in Kenthurst in northwest Sydney, placed video on Facebook.
Israel Folau had delivered sermons to Pentecostal parishioners in recent weeks who criticized transgender activism.
