The Herald Sun reports that Ablett removed his like on Sunday, with the Cats unaware of his interaction with Folau's post.
As a result, the 62-test veteran has been left fighting for his career with Rugby Australia on Monday issuing him a breach notice, effectively tearing up his lucrative four-year deal. God is a God of love and compassion and that's the God Jesus always points out. (Galatians KJV 5:19-21).
The fact that it was the second time Folau had taken to social media to express his controversial views was taken into account.
The Australian worldwide was sacked after a social media post in which he said "hell awaits" gay people.
Even if RA are unable to dissolve his contract on legal grounds - Folau has 48 hours to accept the union's breach of contract or refer it to a hearing - then he will not be adding to his 73 caps.
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has already said Folau is unlikely to play for him again, while the Waratahs have stood him down indefinitely.
Folau has run afoul of the league and LGBTQ campaigners in the past for his defense of Biblical teachings on sexuality and marriage.
"Following the events of a year ago, Israel was warned formally and repeatedly about the expectations of him as player for the Wallabies and NSW Waratahs with regards to social media use and he has failed to meet those obligations".
She added that any commentary "that is in any way disrespectful to people due to their sexuality will result in disciplinary action".
Meanwhile, Folau has been given two days to formally respond to Rugby Australia, or face the sack following his comments.
A devout Christian, Folau had previously been warned but had not been sanctioned for similar comments. "Turn to Jesus Christ who will set you free". During the service, references were made to religious persecution in Folau's case.
Regarding Rugby Australia's decision, Folau said that while it is "obviously a decision that's in the process", he "believes in a God that's in control of all things". God has given and continues to give me many reasons in life to be grateful'.
Despite questions raised over the hate and free speech discussion, Freer says the messages in the Bible come down to interpretation.
"I share it with love", he said.
"I can see that my recent post has hurt people".
"I have love towards everyone that might be saying negative things".
Nick Phipps says the Israel Folau issue has been a distraction for the Waratahs as they prepare for their clash with the Melbourne Rebels on Saturday.
The punishments meted out may be different but the incidents involving both Israel Folau and Billy Vunipola's social media posts and the responses to them show that the values of rugby remain vitally important and must be upheld.
Ablett and Kennedy were two of almost 39,000 people who liked Folau's controversial homophobic post which said gay people are going to hell unless they repent.
