    Folau courts MORE anti-gay controversy in latest sermon

    Cape Town - Former Wallabies star Israel Folau has courted more controversy with his anti-gay stance.

    According to the Stuff.co.nz website, Folau reiterated his stance against gays in a church sermon on Sunday.

    Folau, who recently lost his contract with Rugby Australia after an anti-gay post, described homosexuality as a sin and claimed the devil was behind primary school children being allowed to decide if they wanted to change gender.

    "This is what the devil is trying to do, to instil into the government, into this world, into society, and it is slowly happening," Folau said at The Truth of Jesus Christ Church in Kenthurst.

    "The sad thing is why a lot of people out there that are non-Christians say bad things about the church, is because a lot of the churches allow those things to happen.

    "They say that a man and a man should be able to be married and there is nothing wrong with it. This buys into the theme of pleasing man rather than pleasing God and standing up for the truth."

    On Monday, Folau also uploaded a picture on Twitter, quoting a Bible verse and proclaiming his work to be that of God and not man.
