For the record:OK, WoW in China is censored by government mandate. The Witcher in the US was self-censored to appeal to an American audience. These are very, very different ideas. Other responses explore this idea more deeply, so just read those again.The Bible doesn't care about boobies. The American aversion to nudity is cultural. It comes from the Puritans who first settled here. If you need proof that Christianity does not care about nudity, just look at the Europeans.Constantine was a Roman emperor. Yes, his reign marked the beginning of the east/west split that would eventually lead to the Byzantine empire, but Constantine himself was a Roman. There is no difference between "Roman Emperor" and "emperor of Rome."The Old Testament was gathered writings developed over many years. The New Testament is a collection of writings culled from the plethora of Christian teachings from the time of Christ's death onwards. The process of selection was complicated, sometimes arbitrary, sometimes political, and very interesting. Constantine was involved, but he didn't select the books himself. Obviously, no New Testament writing can predate 33AD or so. The earliest known fragment is from ~130 AD. Complete manuscripts of the Gospels don't show up until ~250 AD.Everyone in this thread should think about what there are saying before they go and say it.
