Christian Cops Want The Darkness II Banned

In yet another brilliant move, a group of upright citizens are angrily scribbling letters to their local congressmen and various leaders in hope of annihilating video games and ushering the Utopian society from which they hold humanity back.

This time, it’s a coalition of Christian law enforcement groups: the Christian Police Association, the International Christian Police Fellowship, the Germany Christian Police Association and the Swiss Christian Police Association. They’ve drafted this letter, sadly in German, that they’re circulating to politicians in hopes of getting them to wise up and stop video game violence before it shatters society and what not. And they’ve singled out first-person shooters, including The Darkness II. That makes sense to me, because that game encourages two kinds of violence: gun violence, and vengeful demon heart-ripping-out violence. They didn’t mention Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in their letter, but I bet it’s just an oversight.

Apparently, the Christian policia believe that The Darkness II and games like it promote “idealized violence” and cause otherwise law-abiding, cop-loving citizens to suddenly hate cops and sick their demons on them. So they want their politicians to start, I dunno, game burnings or to stop… handing the video game industry money? I’m not really sure. Whatever — they want action.

Of course, we’ll not mention how many wars and murders have been inspired by the Bible, despite its largely peace-pushing message. Interesting the way the content of the piece of work may or may not be what it inspires in people — if it inspires anything at all.

Your last comments are pretty offensive there Phil.

You know, if people just followed the pretty clear rules ‘do to others as you would have them do to you’ and ‘be peaceable with all men’ there would never be any wars or murders or crime of any sort to begin with.

And yes, i read the Destructiod article, they were somewhat more… tactful.

I don’t need any help hating police.
