Andrew Sullivan directed me to an article about a new Left Behind video game. You know, the series of Christian books about the rapture? Well, a new game is coming out in October of this year. You can check out the articlehere. I do warn you, this will most likely make you angry. I dislike those books enough because they are just downright bad theology, but this game takes it over the top. The players are in new york city, where people are rioting and buildings are burning (some smoke coming from tall buildings) and the object is to convert people and then, I kid you not, shoot them if they don’t convert. And to top it off, after you kill the infidels (you know… catholics, buhddists, muslims, etc) the character yells “PRAISE THE LORD” Oh yeah, Rick Warren is involved in this too. Wonderful.
Excuse me, while I throw up.
