Israel Folau has posted a video of his career in rugby league and union up to the present day in a seemingly proud moment.
What was interesting is the fact that Folau documented his case from Rugby Australia, when he was sacked for homophobia on a social media post one time, within the proud two-and-a-half minute video.
Folau refused to back down from his comments claiming that gay people would be condemned “to hell unless they repent their sins”.
He later gave a sermon where he claimed Australia’s devastating bushfires were a “little taste of God’s judgement” which was linked to Australia’s same-sex marriage and abortion laws.
However, Folau has stuck by those comments: “What a journey it’s been so far. Grateful to God for everything he’s done in my life. Looking forward to the next chapter…..#TYJ“.
The world rugby star signed for the Catalans Dragons at the beginning of the 2020 season much to the chagrin of a number of fans, but Dragons chairman Bernard Guasch said the club did not “support or agree” with Israel’s past comments upon making the signing.
“We do not share or condone those views and we are totally committed to our club and our sport being open and welcoming to everyone,” he said.
“Any transgression will trigger an immediate termination of Israel’s contract and a substantial fine for the club.”
Folau has since plying his trade for Southport Tigers in the local Gold Coast leagues alongside his brothers.
