So much for the sporting spirit. A team of Muslim football players have refused to play against a gay team in France (see also here).
It’s against their religion. Being gay, that is (as if there were no gay Muslims!). And their superstitious beliefs are more important that football. They would probably complain if a gay (or any other) football team pulled out because they didn’t agree with Islam.
You would think the relevant football authorities had ordered both teams to have a group shag in the showers afterwards.
See an update on this here (see last paragraph).
