    BBC NEWS | Technology | Game delayed over Koran phrases


    Sony has postponed the global release of a much-anticipated video game due to concerns that it may offend Muslims.
    Copies of LittleBigPlanet are being recalled from shops worldwide after it emerged that a background music track contained two phrases from the Koran.

    In June 2007, Sony apologised to the Church of England after setting scenes in a violent video game inside Manchester Cathedral. On that occasion the game was not withdrawn.



    So it appears it is OK to show violence in a Christian church, but you better not have a music track that contains two phrases from the Koran.
    They blow up our towns, cities and people; and we all run around like scared children, too afraid to upset anyone. This makes me really mad :332:

    You have miscompared issues of scale. First, the Church of England is not representative of Christians everywhere, much less the Manchester Cathedral. The Koran is representative of the Muslim faith everywhere.

    After all, you didn't see in Southern Baptists in Texas complaining about the Manchester Cathedral, did you? How about California Catholics? Did any of the LDS folks? The Methodists didn't.

    DFW area.....Wylie.
    They were probably worried they would get suicide-bombed by some militant muslims.......maybe it was more fear-driven than politically correct.

    Are you saying that had a verse from the Bible (as apposed to the Koran) been set to music it would have received as much consideration?
