+ - Left Behind, a violent Christian videogame

Submitted by Dan Slotman
Dan Slotman (974474) writes "A Christian video game based on the book series Left Behind has been criticized for encouraging religious violence.

From the article:
Players are charged with recruiting, and converting, an army that will engage in physical and spiritual warfare with the antichrist and his evil followers... "After you kill somebody you need to recharge your soul points and to do that you need to bend down in prayer. ... I think the message is extremely clear," said Clark Stevens, co-director of Campaign to Defend the Constitution.
It certainly should be noted that not all Christians are happy with the game. "'We are trying to tell families that this game is faith-based violence and is not suitable for families,' said Rev. Timothy F. Simpson, a Presbyterian minister and the interim president of the Christian Alliance for Progress."

It has been argued that violence in videogames doesn't matter because it isn't real. Faith in video games doesn't seem like a very loaded subject. Does the combination of faith and violence justify a different reaction?"

Don't sweat it -- it's only ones and zeros. -- P. Skelly
