This is Larry again.
You probably missed the story, but Sony has recalled a video game that it was getting ready to release very soon. Was it the violence? Was it the blood and gore? Was it the language? Nope. It was because "One of the background music tracks that was licensed from a record label for use in the game contains two expressions that can be found in the Qur'an".

The game is called Little Big Planet and it's basically like Super Mario if you remember that from the old Nintendo. The cool parts about this game is that you can actually make your own levels and share them on the internet and solve the puzzles with your friends. So instead of having to hand your controller over to the next person in line, 4 people can play at the same time over the internet or even at your own house to solve these puzzles which require you to work together. I won't bore you with some of the other cool details about the game.
Back to my complaint... This is pretty ridiculous. Even the president of the non-profit American Islamic Forum for Democracy disagrees with this move by Sony. Source: http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/3978.html It wasn't even that the music was speaking negatively of the Islam or the Qur'an. It was quoting some of the writing and the song was even by a Muslim. I highly doubt that any Christians would object to a game that had music in a game and part of the music was quoting parts of the bible. Maybe those Japanese executives over in Japan don't understand the freedom of speech.
We're going too far to be politically correct. Make it stop.
