Nevada, July 13 (IBNS) Roman Catholics have come out in support of a US based Hindu group upset at the inappropriate usage of Kali and other Hindu deities by the Georgia (USA) online games developer Hi-Rez Studios in the upcoming online action video game SMITE.
Father Charles T. Durante, well known Roman Catholic leader in Nevada (USA), in a statement, said: "Respect for religious practice and beliefs is a basic tenet of our land. When using religious images in commercial media basic respect calls for understanding the teachings behind those images.
"This need is only heightened when using a religion´s supreme images. I would hope that understanding and respect will bring a mutual agreement honoring these Hindu concerns."
Jews and Buddhists have already supported the cause of protesting US Hindus with statements issued by prominent Jewish leader in Western USA Rabbi ElizaBeth W. Beyer and distinguished Buddhist leader from Nevada Reverend Jikai' Phil Bryan recently.
