I've just finished editting my CV and have added a new reference. Who just happens to be the local reverend. Now I'm not the most religious of people and only know him as one of the guys from my rugby club. I've occassionally popped by the rectory for a brew on my way through the parish. My question is: is it morally reprehensible for me to tout him as a reverend on my CV in a character reference capacity even though I'm not linked to him in a religious capacity? Or is it just another means to a target and perfectly acceptable manipulation of resources? Opinions please. Afternote: Please exempt my signature from your considerations on this matter. The presence of biblical extracts is not an indication of my beliefs.
