    Diversity training

    "All nine will undergo a further intensive course of diversity training," the force said in a statement.


    The Catholic Archbishop of Glasgow said on Friday he had given his backing to nine firefighters who were disciplined for refusing to hand out leaflets during a gay pride rally.

    Here's Reuters calling the further intensive course "discipline". Like in
    punishment I think. Perhaps of the cruel and inhuman type.

    Doesn't the image of burly firefighters sitting at their small desks taking
    notes, while the nice teacher explains the subject matter seem very Monty Python
    to you?

    Archbishop Mario Conti said he was concerned about what had happened and expressed solidarity with their actions, adding neither the officers' competency and commitment had not been questioned.

    He said the officers had "legitimate concerns about being the subject of taunts and jokes, and in which, in come cases, their religious sensibilities were being grossly offended by people dressed as priests and nuns lampooning the church."
