039;I share it with love': Rugby star stands by 'hell awaits' gays remark

Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall said "I'm sure there's stuff going on in his head", but will pick him for Saturday's European semi-final against Munster at Allianz Park. I share it with love.

Folau, Super Rugby's record try scorer, is Australia's most marketable player and was a key part of the Wallabies plans for the World Cup this year.

"I can't change what the word of God says".

Coach Michael Cheika said on Monday he would not have been able to select fullback Israel Folau for the Wallabies after his latest "disrespectful" social media posts attacking gay people.

At that point, I think it does become an issue because everyone is entitled to live their life how they see fit and I don't think anyone has the right to impose their beliefs on other people.

Meanwhile, Folau has been given two days to formally respond to Rugby Australia, or face the sack following his comments.

I played with Euan Murray and he was a deeply religious man, so much so that he didn't play on Sundays.

"It was made clear to Israel in writing and verbally when I met with him previous year that any social media posts or commentary that in any way were disrespectful to people due to their sexuality would result in disciplinary action", Castle said.

Folau was sanctioned by Rugby Australia on Monday (April 15).

But now his global career appears to be over following his Instagram post, which said, "Drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolators - Hell awaits you".

A legal battle with RA could ensue as Folau is refusing to retract divisive remarks that have been liked by a number of global players, including England number eight Billy Vunipola.

Folau was today served with a breach notice over the posts.

"In saying that, obviously I love playing footy and if it goes down that path I'll definitely miss it".

Folau has been warned about this kind of thing before and what he posted on social media clearly violated rules or guidelines put in place by the organisation as well.

"He's a loving God and he wants people to turn away from what they're living in and He'll give them life", the seasoned player told the Sydney Morning Herald Sunday after attending the Truth Of Jesus Christ Church in Sydney.

At Saracens, we are one family, open to all with the firm view that everyone should be treated equally with respect and humility.

Folau, 30, said he had no intention of retracting or apologizing for his comments about gay people which, he insisted were based on his Christian beliefs.

'The player has been formally warned about his future conduct'. Galatians 5:19‭-‬21 KJV _ Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. "These comments are really disappointing and clearly don't reflect the spirit of inclusion and diversity that we support", a Qantas spokesman said in a statement sent to CNN.
