← Countless millions of taxpayers’ money spent on discrimination in schools

I thought the UK had legislation to prevent discrimination in employment on the grounds of ethnic origin, colour, sex and religious conviction. Is it not against such legislation to advertise a post and say only people who can 'prove their faith' can apply? And if that's not illegal, if you advertise for a chaplain, who presumably would have to be ordained, when women are not eligible for ordination, isn't that discrimination on grounds of sex?
