E3: Dante's Inferno Protested by Churchgoers
A group of protesters holding signs stood outside the entrance of the E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) video game conference at the Los Angeles Convention Centre earlier today. They were protesting the release and display of a video game based on the literary classic Dante's Inferno, created by Electronic Arts (EA).
The protesters, who came from a church in Ventura County, held signs with slogans such as "trade in your playstation for a praystation" and "EA = anti-Christ" as they marched and handed out a homemade brochure that warns, "a video game hero does not have the authority to save and damn... ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE. and he will not judge the sinners who play this game kindly."
Church member Matthew Francis asked a reporter to pass the protesters' message on to EA executives, as they could not enter the centre.
