Just Don't Shoot The Altar Boys

The Church of England has entered negotiations with Sony to change the graphics in one of the Japanese company's video games. According to church officials, the PS3 game "Resistance: Fall of Man" contains a sequence in which players have to walk through a Manchester cathedral shooting at assorted enemies.

It is unclear if anyone would have known that it's a Manchester cathedral if only church leaders had kept their mouths shut.

It is good that the peace-loving Church of England is concerned about its image. After all, the institution was founded by King Henry VIII after the Pope refused to grant him a divorce from his first wife. Henry ultimately went on to behead two of his six wives.

Now THAT'S family values!
