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.
Members of the two faiths had been discussing ways of encouraging greater inter-faith dialogue at the "Shoulder to Shoulder" event.
My views on allying with Muslims have been set out before at the New Crusaders. Needless to say, I do not support such alliances. Nonetheless, I fully support priests playing football matches with imams on one condition: Vinnie Jones must be allowed to play as an honorary priest. Let's see how Allah protects the imams from his scything tackle.
Also, I'd like to see Abu Hamza play in goal...
