Unholy row at clergy soccer game

‘A friendship-building football match between Muslim and Christian clergy in Norway was called off after a row over the participation of women players.

Muslim Imams had refused to play against women because it went against their beliefs about close physical contact with the opposite sex.

But when the church decided to drop its women players, the priests’ team captain walked out in protest.

The game was meant to be an enjoyable end to a day-long conference in Oslo.’
