Step 1: Port game
Step 2: General controversy over game
Step 3: Profit!

IMHO this post was scored incorrectly.... this is not just "Funny" but is also just plain smart/insightful. this may have been a clever move, but it was more than that...this was just plain smart. creating controversy (especially among this community) is advertising. i imagine that sales for this game has gone up (and will continue to go up) since this post. i for one will probably pick this game up when i finish this post. like i said, many times controversy => advertisement...and a lot of that advertisement ends up being positive...i mean geeze....look at the tone of this thread... -ryan

The present Pope seems to be a lot more forward-thinking and progressive than previous popes. There was a very interesting read in Time magazine recently (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1727724,00.html) that showed not only his stance on America (the main topic of the article) but also his beliefs/forward thinking mentality.

Hold on to the root.
