Israel Folau asks for donations to fund $3m legal fees for religious discrimination case

The Australian star is hoping to raise three million dollars, having already paid $100,000 of his own money on the internal battle with Rugby Australia.

At the time of writing, after just two days, Folau has already raised around $500,000.

 

Coinciding with the fundraising campaign, Folau has also given his first interview since he was sacked.

He told Sydney’s 2GB that he stood by his Instagram post which said that ‘hell awaits’ sinners including adulterers and homosexuals.

“My faith is what defines me as a person, it’s who I am and it’s why I wanted to stand up and fight [the decision].

“My identity is found in what’s written in what I call the word of God.”

Folau also said he’s forgiven team mates who’ve spoken out against him.

“Whether or not that was what they really meant, I don’t take anything personally and I have no harsh feelings towards them,” he said.

“If I do carry any hate or any judgmental feelings towards them then I’m going against the very thing I believe in.”

The debate over whether Folau was right to post the message online has split opinion across Australia.

Churches have fallen on both sides of the divide.

One Anglican priest says he’s received a death threat after putting up a sign outside his church which directly addressed the LGBT community saying “Folau is wrong – don’t listen to him”.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
