Angry Christians call for video game ban
The BBC reports that officials at Canterbury Cathedral are calling for a computer game to be banned because it shows the building as a backdrop to a battle.
Koch Media’s War On Terror allows players to battle terrorists with a “world strike force”, and features locations throughout the world including the Eiffel Tower, the Brandenburg Gate as well as Canterbury Cathedral.
A spokesman for the cathedral, Christopher Robinson, said:
Having the cathedral as aesthetic wallpaper for violence and hatred isn’t appropriate […]
The whole point of the church is to preach God’s love to the world and for humans to love each other.
Koch Media have refused to withdraw the game.
