Submission + - Cathedral row over video game

An anonymous reader writes: The BBC reports that the Church of England is considering legal action against Sony for featuring Manchester Cathedral in a violent PlayStation video game. The bishop of Manchester has stated that violence shouldn't be associated with the church, a view which may come as a shock to history students and those who've actually read the bible. Those protesting consider the game especially inappropriate because "it is well known that Manchester has a gun crime problem".

Sony describe the game as featuring "strange looking alien invaders seeking to destroy humanity". Speaking of which; MEP Arlene McCarthy is apparently writing to Sony to express her concerns.
