Video Games for the Easily Offended
October 20, 2008 7:27 pm
Presbyterians? Methodists? Catholics? Wiccans? You know the answer to that…
One of the fall’s most anticipated video games for the PlayStation 3, Sony’s “LittleBigPlanet,” had to be yanked from shelves at the last minute Monday because it might accidentally offend Muslims.
You can read the whole article here. It seems that one of the songs has two lines that also appear in the Koran. You know, I’d actually be happy if a popular video game had a song with a few lines from the Bible. But, I guess since Christians don’t handle their offense the same way Muslims do, we just get to get offended.
(Not that I want censure of anything that may offend any religion - most religions can handle it.)
