And that people need to get off the "all video games are evil" bandwagon:

LONDON (AP) - The Church of England accused Sony Corp. (SNE) on Saturday of using an English cathedral as the backdrop to a violent computer game and said it should be withdrawn from shop shelves.

The church said Sony did not ask for permission to use Manchester cathedral and demanded an apology.

The popular new PlayStation 3 game, "Resistance: Fall of Man," shows a virtual shootout between rival gunmen with hundreds of people killed inside the cathedral. Church officials described Sony's alleged use of the building as "sick" and sacrilegious.

A spokesman for the Church of England said a letter will be sent to Sony on Monday. If the church's request for an apology and withdrawal of the game is not met, the church will consider legal action, the spokesman said.

You know, not for nothing, but you're not "virtually shooting rival gunmen inside the cathedral." If the reporter actually knew what the fuck he was talking about, he'd know that the entire game is trying to rid the world of these Alien Monster Fucks and save humanity!

And everyone knows that when aliens invade, you need to fight them wherever they are (even churches) with giant lazer weapons! Teaching them the Bible ain't going to cut it.
