Folau's punishment is yet to be finalised since a panel decided he had committed a high-level breach of his RA contract with offensive transphobic and homophobic posts on social media last month, after being previously warned by the rugby governing body following a similar incident in April 2018.
"Those that are living in sin will end up in Hell unless you repent", he added in the caption.
Sydney's Daily Telegraph reported Friday that he been given numerous opportunities before and during the hearing to save his career by guaranteeing not to target the gay community in any further social media posts.
The 30-year-old reportedly said his lack of remorse was because the post was made with love, not malice.
The termination of his four-year, $4 million contract is a possibility.
"Having a catch-all provision and a broader agreement generally works better to deal with the wide variety of issues you're going to deal with - here we're talking about what players can and can't say on social media as an example within that".
Mitchell also called out Folau's hypocrisy when he progressed to a code of conduct hearing despite writing in a Players Voice column a year ago he would walk away from his deal if RA told him the situation became untenable.
Wallabies legend and devout Christian Nick Farr-Jones defended Folau earlier this week, telling Sky News the ugly situation had become a "train wreck".
McLachlan said it was natural for people to question why Folau's contract didn't have a specific social media clause in it - especially given he was in a similar situation previous year - but stood by his belief such a move could lead to more headaches.
Even before it potentially reaches the courts, the Folau hearing has developed into one of the most drawn-out legal stoushes in Australian sports history.
Should he be sacked, Folau - Super Rugby's all-time leading try-scorer and a 73-Test stalwart for the Wallabies - would be the first Australian athlete dismissed for expressing fundamental religious beliefs. I think we can't focus too much on the "what ifs" because we can't control those.
British rugby player Billy Vunipola received a formal warning from the Rugby Football Union and his club Saracens after defending Folau in an Instagram post, the network added. You need to dot your i's and cross your t's across everything. "He still has the Ku Klux Klan; then he'll see what it's like on the other side", LifeSite News said.
"For any strong Australian brand or organisation, you've got to stand for what you are and with rugby, it's the pillars of integrity and respect and teamwork and the inclusiveness we champion", Mitchell said.
