After saying they're sorry to church, Sony has now apologized officially in a letter sent to the Manchester Evening News, and placed an ad in today's paper to that effect.
If the 2nd Resistance map-pack included solely the cathedral level. Here's hoping Resistance 2 is set in Vatican City
u can play with the pope.
Here you are, a bubble for you pretty girl, now return the favour pls. I'm a pretty boy ;)
dude, I think hes a guy
wanna hook it up too? dude ive been in love with Ziyi since Rush Hour 2. "some apple?" yes please some apple, Ziyi
this seems pretty retarded for Sony to have to apologize; too many people say "cry me a river" and then get their damned river.
keke u giev soj!!1 um...bubbles...
wow, this is becoming the week for apologies on these forums lol
first microsoft apologizes for faulty consoles, and now sony apologizes for the church ordeal in RFOM...i can't wait to hear what kind of apologies nintendo has up its sleeves to take the spotlight away from microsoft and sony!! lol
Good point. Now its Nintendo's turn to apologize.
7/6/07 Nintendo has just publicly apologized to Plumbers and Italians worldwide. Announced reparations to be paid in koopa shells. AP reports Bullet Bill shot himself on learning of his Un-employment.
i sent a tip in 4 this ..too bad
How dyu give/receive bubbles and what exactly are bubbles?
Make another 4 seperate comments and you will see what the bubbles are for ;)
Well I don't think they needed to do that. Isn't a church suppose to turn the other cheek?
haha good point :)
i am catholic and we are the ones who are supposed to always forgive people without requiring any kind of apology in return...oh well, maybe the church will make a revision to that policy if it suites them better :P
i'm sorry everyone :)
it doesn't matter if you're catholic or not, as HUMAN BEINGS we should forgive one another if the otherside is genuinely apologetic...you say you're catholic yet it's obvious to me that you're not. if you mean that is the religion that you grew up on then fine but if you do not practice the religion then you are not of that religion so don't act like you're some spokesperson for the catholic faith because you're NOT.
emptiness the point of religion is that one can practice it the way one wants and they are still part of that religion. Do you think the Fathers of the church that DrRage may or may not go to think he's going to hell for not going to church? No they don't they still consider him a part of the community and would help him out in times of need. That's what religon and churches do they except not throw people out because they didn't go to last Sundays mass.
Plus your argument is a bit harsh on someone who said they belong to a certain religion. Are you mad at catholics?
okay, umm so what is up with your hate and saying that it is obvious to you that i am not catholic? um, do you belong to the church that i do that is by my house? because if so, then you would see me there every sunday with my wife..please don't make an absolute dumb comment regarding a persons religion and how it so OBVIOUS to you that they are not a practicing catholic. i can say the same about you for criticizing and questioning someone's commitment when you do not even know them.
and where in my statement did i make any kind of hint that i was speaking on behalf of all catholics with my comment?? you really have read into something that clearly was not there. i made a light-hearted comment which somehow you have turned into some sort of religious soapbox stance
""it doesn't matter if you're catholic or not, as HUMAN BEINGS we should forgive one another if the otherside is genuinely apologetic...you say you're catholic yet it's obvious to me that you're not. if you mean that is the religion that you grew up on then fine but if you do not practice the religion then you are not of that religion so don't act like you're some spokesperson for the catholic faith because you're NOT.""
"...the point of religion is that one can practice it the way one wants and they are still part of that religion..."
i'm sorry but that's NOT the way religion works. the point of religion is following set rules and rituals in order to expand ones spirituality that can be unified with the group order to expand the influence of such religious beliefs. practicing it the way one wants to practice it makes one NOT a member of such faith. that's the whole history behind the Lutheran separation from Catholicism.
it does matter how one practices a religion to be considered part of it.
I was getting at if one supports the morals of a church you grew up with you can still be that religion. Religion is based on morals if you don't share the same as the church I don't think you belong to it. So you saying if someone grew up going to this one church then had to move away for 4 years for college he wouldn't be considered part of that church community? Tradition is one thing but it's the morals that should be first and for most. Like the 10 commandments you believe in those right?
It's actually a compliment to the architect of the building if they used it as a backdrop.
I'm tired of whiny bit***s always being "offended" by everything. Sony should have told the offended party to go screw themselves. Just like Imus should have told Rev. Al and the anyone else offended by "nappy-headed hos" to go screw themselves.
Political-correctness will be the end of the world. We can't even control our borders because we're so afraid of offending people who are in the wrong in the first place.
but nowadays you don't apologize with a letter. I bet you anything that this won't be over till a huge check is sent there way.
You just offend me. I want an apology. lol
Go screw yourself *j/k*. See, that wasn't that hard.
I'm a Roman Catholic myself and I was not offended by the church being in the game at all. There are many reasons for it and the first one is it's just a damn game. Second, it's a sci-fi shooter that's set in an alterd past. It's all make belive.
I understand the church wanting an apology but demanding to take the game off the shelfs??? Are they crazy?? Do they have any idea how big of a blow that would be?
Obviously they can't do any math at all and don't know how business works.
This is just another example why I hate all religions icluding chatolicism (wich is my religion by the way).
Religion allways attacks, takes away, lies and holds back people.
Religion should not hold any power what so ever in todays world.
Religion has done enough demage to all humans!
As a Roman Catholic myself (well, I was born into it, now agnostic) I wholeheartedly agree with you. Good points, and have a bubble on me :)
Have a bubble on me for some of your post, but don't worry - the Church knows about business more than most.
Why do you think they went after Sony and asked for a donation to make it all go away??
im not a girl. i just have a avatar of ziyi zhang.
I liked her in Memoirs of a Geisha...good movie.
Good choice bro..;)
she is [email protected]
Going to appologise for the three red lights! they should apologise about 2.5 million times for each console they screwed up!!! (Towelbox360 pwnzz d n00bcakes /end sarcasm) lol
what the blue does that mean?lol
if you have a bricked 360, a temp. fix is to wrap the 360 in towels, run it for 15mins to get it real hot and melt the connections back together. a genius and worthy(worthless) repair for your hard earned money lol. wonder, is this why arabs wear towels on their heads?
"In the eyes of the Church surely something is either right or wrong. It can't be wrong one minute but made right after a reasonable donation. That would be hypocritical and would tell the world that the Church was just after the money in the first place, wouldn't it?"
Thanks - I've burst my bubble cherry now... :-)
Sony did nothing wrong!
Someone please explain to me how i can get bubbles
Thanks pepl :)
If you click on a - or + near a user's bubbles, you will give - and + feedback and they ultimatly give or take bubbles.
Try to post good comments, not be a fanboy and dont spam. Hope I was helpfull.
politics & religion = bull$(/&$
always trying to get more ppl in
always giving wrong info for their own benefit
for what I concern both can go F(/&# themselves with an atari joystick
I have 3 bubbles. Yipee :) Now is there a away to give others bubbles?
Who took Sony's balls?
I think they did it for publicity, but at the same time the right thing to do. If they appologise and the church takes them through court then the public won't be so down on Sony because of it.
Don't see how the church can complain too much though, I mean it could have been turned into a brothel or something (go on "Rockstar" I dare you). It was an army hospital (as it was used in the war), that had been over run by aliens.
