British Government
United Kingdom

Recently, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has been under fire from the Church Of England for featuring Manchester Cathedral in one of their Playstation 3 games "Resistance: Fall Of Man".

The Church Of England has threatened legal action unless something is done to solve the problem, the simplest one being the removal of the game from the shelves. The reason they are doing this is because they believe it to be insensitive to feature Manchester Cathedral because of gun crime in the city of Manchester.

Personally, I feel this is an unfair justification, considering how many movies, books, television programmes and other forms of entertainment show the same (or worse) degree of violence or unacceptable content in other, equally crime-filled, cities around the world. I myself am a Catholic but think videogames earn unfair prejudice when it comes to more "adult content".

We, the undersigned, call on the British Government to intervene should Sony be ordered to remove copies of Resistance: Fall Of Man from store shelves.
