Cricket - umpiring bias Can't Post or Reply Privately

Michael Claughton, who has 18 years’ experience as a cricket umpire, offered to officiate the match between the Church of England XI and Vatican XI, due to take place later this month at Canterbury.

He has been rejected after it was revealed that his great-great grandfather was former Anglican Bishop of Rochester and of St Albans

“A very nice lady said ‘I’m afraid we are going to have to decline because we have decided the umpires could not have any religious background, not Church of England or Roman Catholic,’” he said. “She said the Roman Catholics may consider me to be biased. "

Brilliant. So the church consider someone with a Christian upbringing less trustworthy than an atheist or someone from another religion. No wonder the church is going to hell in a handcart.

A story about nothing. They had agreed not to have umpires with religious background. It turns out he has such a background so he's not allowed to umpire. What's the problem? I'm sure it'll be possible to find another person to do the job.
