Rugby Australia have announced they plan to terminate Israel Folau’s contract following his anti-LGBT comments on social media. The devout Christian posted a message on his Instagram account on Wednesday, which read: “Warning. Drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists, idolators. Hell awaits you. Repent! Only Jesus saves.” He also took to Twitter to criticise Tasmania’s decision to become Australia’s first state to make it legally optional to list gender on birth certificates, posting that “the devil has blinded so many people in this world”. Rugby Australia confirmed on Wednesday they were investigating Folau’s remarks but have since been unable to contact him.
