This story had nothing to do with religion, it was a PR stunt. They seem to be doing just fine with the PR advisers they’ve already got. After all, this story has got us all talking about the game, hasn’t it? That, my friends, was the whole point of the exercise. They had it planned from the start.

These religious folks need to smoke a j and calm the hell down. Always freaking about everything.

Being a true christian and trying to follow the teaching of CHRIST as much as possible, I must raise a peacefull protest against it.

Hurting someone is the greatest SIN of all, so avoid it, whether it is religiously or in another way.

The complaint and request of removal came from one of Sony’s own customers, one who seems to love this Sony’s new product in which he finds a background music that contains something that is “deeply offending”. It was posted with a title “very urgent about little big planet lbp” to the Sony’s user community site.

“We Muslims consider the mixing of music and words from our Holy Quran deeply offending.”

Another post form a Muslim user comments that he himself does not feel offended by this particular music but “can see this turning into something nasty, where extreme muslims will completly bash sony” and suggests that “it would be best if this was removed.”

These opinions came from Sony’s own customers.

I think it was a sound business decision that Sony avoided a risk that was not worth taking.

When we start fearing everything we do for fear of offending people we start the perilous journey back to the unenlightend past. Sony is setting a dangerous precedent. From this moment forward NO Islamic reference will be found in any game? Funny that manny FPS are set in Muslim countries in which I can happily kill Muslims without offending anyone. Political Correctness running amok…again.
