I'm offended by this article tbh.I'm not religious, I already don't believe in this stuff, why do i need to know about stuff that other people believe in that i already don't agree with.Am i meant to read the article and feel more qualified as a non religious person somehow because I have found something else to disagree with them about? Am i meant to laugh at them because they believe something i don't? Because they've been doing that for a long time... and i've never found it funny... i tend to respect the beliefs of others personally but meh.The drinking, language, sex and violence topics have actually been raised by non religious groups previously for example... maybe I missed those articles.In fact upon inspecting the website in which is not linked appropriately in the article it repeatedly states;"This is not an attempt to ban video games, or dictate whether people should play them. This is purely meant to inform parents who are concerned with the moral content/issues contained in video games and make available to them information which is not easily found."Nice agenda peddling from Wowinsider...

In fact seeing as the article fails to share the link i will;http://www.timothyplan.com/ProActive/frame-ProActive-videogame.htmYou may even notice that they are quite apologetic on the subject, reaffirm repeatedly that it'snot an agenda to ban games and it even mentions that some games that are listed "Did Not" fail their screening and that they are only listed because they are popular purchases and to make sure parents know what they're buying... Am i the only one who doesn' t think this is totally fair enough?

@rosencratzAs a Christian I appreciate your honesty and ability to look at this thoughtfully.Unfortunately in this day and age you don't see that often, especially by bloggers. Headlines & creating controversy is far more desirable and lucrative.

Rosencratz:I agree, and I'm speaking as a pagan here. Considering that this is meant to be a guide for Christian parents as to the appropriateness of certain video games according to their moral guidelines -- I really don't see the problem. They aren't trying to ban video games or tell adults not to play them, which I HAVE seen in the past from some "liberal" organizations.

Rosencratz:"Nice agenda peddling from Wowinsider..."What you say!Where is the agenda peddling? It's a post informing us about a bunch of silly judgemental religious fanatics criticizing the video game that is the very topic of this entire blog... There's no soapboxing going on from Adam, merely some slightly ironic commentary. If that offends your alledgedly non-religious sensibilities, then allow me to laugh you in the face. :P Please, don't be so over-sensitive.Actually, I'm a bit surprised WoW gets away with a mere nine on their IMO rather arbitrary scale, considering there's plenty DEMONIC stuff going on in WoW. Seems they haven't played the game all that much before passing judgement on it if they haven't discovered that there's plenty of DEMONIC enemies to kill, an expansion full of DEMONS, and in fact an entire playable class filled with DEMONICNESS. Surely that ought to warrant a score of at least twelve, if not fifteen.Demons ought to be a lot more wicked (in the original sense of the word) than the guns, hookers and bad language of the GTA series of games in the eyes of anyone stupid enough to believe fairy tales of water covering the entire globe, and the world being repopulated from a pair of every land animal brought aboard a ship... (Nice case of incest there in the Noah family I might add; the bible itself scores roughly 667 on these guys' scale.)

What they forget is that these games have a rating for a reason. Also reading through it makes me want to buy fallout 3

I don't see why you have the need to reply to each of those claims....WoW is sexual in nature...the female clothings are often very sexual. We got the world largest online brewfest in wow dedicated to getting drunk...alcohol IS encouraged in the game. Why even bother responding to that? And the language part...he did say "Mild" in his statement....why the need to still whine in a silly retort? Don't get this post.

some ppl really are retardacons,i think after 4yrs of WOW history, parents of kids who play this game know what it is. i think the ppl who sent out this list, are a little slow to the punch. /sigh, why cant there be less QQ an more pewpew ?

"But unlike the text which the Timothy Plan lives by, there are no descriptions of a man being strung up on a cross with a crown of thorns on."I must admit that I stopped reading after this statement. Is WoW a game that Christian investors should not invest in? Yes! Is it a game that Christians do not play? No!I understand that this site is a grouping of blog articles and is not representative of the staff as a whole, but I have now lost all respect for Adam as a blogger.
