FIFA should team up with Catholic Church

With the news that there have only been two 'out' gay footballers in the world - the late Justin Fashanu and the Swedish footballer Anton Hysén (who plays for Utsiktens BK in Gothenburg) - surely it would be a good idea for FIFA to 'twin' with another international organisation with a similar antediluvian record on attitudes to sexuality.

Might I suggest the Catholic Church is a natural fit? With its stone-age views on sex, women and gays it could, perhaps, consider some kind of sponsorship of national football teams worldwide.
