Christianism Watch


Christianists, according to this site, are now on the verge of marketing a video game that places thirteen-year-olds as warriors in the End-Times. Yep: now teens can wage war and practise murdering infidels on a computer, befopre they have to do the real thing after the Rapture. Here's the site for Left Behind games (from which the graphic above is taken). Money quote:

This game immerses children in present-day New York City - 500 square blocks, stretching from Wall Street to Chinatown, Greenwich Village, the United Nations headquarters, and Harlem. The game rewards children for how effectively they role play the killing of those who resist becoming a born again Christian. The game also offers players the opportunity to switch sides and fight for the army of the AntiChrist, releasing cloven-hoofed demons who feast on conservative Christians and their panicked proselytes (who taste a lot like Christian).

I'm not sure who the AntiChrist will be. Maybe the designers are waiting to find out who becomes the Democratic party nominee.
