Church officials at Manchester Cathedral have gone on record to say that they have “forgiven” Sony for failing to ask permission over the depiction of the building in Insomniac’s PlayStation 3 title, Resistance: Fall of Man.
"I think some important lessons have been learnt. So we do forgive Sony for what they have done, even though they still believe they have done nothing wrong”, stated The Dean of Manchester Cathedral, Reverend Rogers Govender.
"In an industry that is breaking new frontiers, it is important that long held traditions of film and television are maintained. These traditions include having courtesy, respecting the dignity of your subject, and admitting when mistakes have been made.”
"In so many ways Sony have failed to live up to these standards by disrespecting people of faith and the victims of gun crime here in Manchester”, he added.
Despite this, Rogers noted that the Cathedral has received a spike in the number of visitors since the discrepancy earlier this year, particularly in those of a young age as well as tourists.

@SolsticeZero I will go as far as to say, "f**k religion." This only shows religions' and the people behind these religions' true colors.

You know what they say: "Forgiveness is divine... but money is better". But for the love of crap, don't assume that ALL religious people are as petty and corrupt as the heads of Manchester.

I'm picturing myself what Sony would reply to the Church's "forgivness".
FU, YOU HIPOCRITS!!!
these people where to dumb to actually make some researchs on the game before Yackin.... Sony did not made the game, Insomniac did!!!
and they have nothin to apologise for either.
I agree with ya "Staticneuron", it's like suing an artist for painting a monumental statue while adding some cool things on it! :D:D:D

So will Resistance 2: Rise of Man be set in a devestated Vatican City?

Ultimately what all this means is they arnt going to get jack out of sony, or even Insomniac. They've given up and while they can say they forgive them they've completely missed that the point of forgivness is not to continue to talk about how they havent lived up to what you wanted them to do. To forgive is devine, to continue to be petty b!tches just shows how hypocritical they are.
