TORONTO, Dec 11 (LSN)—In response to letters protesting Sony's Christmas album entitled “O Come All Ye Faithful,” the proceeds of which were to support an abortion-promoting group called Rock for Choice, Sony recently issued an apology. In a letter to people protesting the album, the company said, “Sony Music had no intention of re-releasing or marketing O Come All Ye Faithful this Christmas. We apologize for this mishap, and regret any upset resulting from this inadvertent error.” The album was planned for release last year in the US, but pro-life protests garnered a promise from Sony to halt the release. The same album was discovered this year to be available in Canada.

Sony claimed it only became aware of the fact that O Come All Ye Faithful was still available for sale December 5th. It further noted that no copies of the album were manufactured after 1996, and that the release was due to “a computer error.” The company said that no new orders for the album will be taken, that open orders have been canceled, and that the album has been deleted from Sony Music's website.
