Willie Mason has appeared on an outraged Hell’s Angel bikie’s Instagram story to say he believes in God after he called the bible ‘fictional’.
The former NRL star made the appearance last week on Jason ‘Ace’ Fahey’s social media page to reaffirm his religious beliefs.
‘There were some things taken out of context saying I [was] bagging the Bible and I wasn’t religious,’ Mason said to camera.
‘What a load of s**t. I go to church every single Sunday.’

Willie Mason has appeared on a Hell’s Angel’s Instagram story to say he believes in God after he called the bible ‘fictional’ during a pre-boxing match interview
Mason referred to the bible as ‘fictional’ during an interview ahead of his boxing match with Sam Thaiday on February 12.
The 40-year-old was asked to give his thoughts on disgraced NRL star Israel Folau, who was set to sign with St George-Illawarra Dragons.
Folau had his $4 million Wallabies contract ripped up in May 2019 after he twice uploaded homophobic Instagram posts.
‘I’ve been very loud about this,’ Mason told reporters.
‘There are some absolute pieces of s**t playing our game, and then we get a bloke who quotes a fictional book and he gets ostracised and can’t play here.’
‘I don’t think we should just care about his personal life and say you’re done because of that, because of the media build-up.’
Mason said in the Instagram video his comments were taken out of context and he was ‘here to break some bread with one of the boys.’
A tattooed man then walked onto screen before patting Mason on the back.
‘He came, he spoke the truth and he is not a coward. He is a man in my eyes,’ he said.

He also played for the Canterbury Bulldogs, Sydney Roosters and Newcastle Knights before shifting his sporting prowess from the field to the boxing ring.
Mason competed in three matches, one with former All Blacks forward Troy Flavell in 2012 and the other with Super Rugby-winning front-rower Ben Tameifuna in 2014.
St George-Illawarra withdrew its $1 million offer to sign Folau after widespread criticism, including from its own sponsor.
