From THE LOCAL (Sweden):
The Church of Sweden is being asked to introduce football-style penalties for swearing, after last year’s meeting of the church’s governing body was marred by foul language.
Two members of the church’s Synod have proposed the move after an outbreak of foul language last year’s annual ecclesiastical meeting. Football trainers, they point out, face fines of 500 kronor if they swear on the pitch.
“It is tempting to compare how language, behaviour and restraint are handled in sport, which seems to have come a lot further than the Synod,” the motion reads. The Synod will now be asked to vote on the move when it meets in Uppsala at the end of September.
COMMENT: Oh, no! Not fecking Uppsala again?
