Insane Christian group wants to ban Modern Warfare 2

It wouldn't be Christmas without some good ol' fashioned Christian intolerance, would it? A bunch of radical wingnuts have taken issue with Modern Warfare 2, declaring that all decent people should denounce it and the "massacre level" contained within. 

"All decent people should denounce the video game Modern Warfare 2 and join in opposing the sale and use of such games," says Maine's Christian Civic League, promoting the love and understanding that Christianity is known for. "Moreover, it may be time for Maine to begin a debate over the advisability of banning these games completely, giving due consideration to both the First Amendment, and the danger these violent games pose to the public."

Apparently, games, drugs and "outrageous" rock music are part of a "witch's brew" that will "lead to tragedy" in Maine. 

Sounds about right for people like this -- "I don't agree with something, therefore it is dangerous and should be banned." Pretty much the same thinking that led to witch burning, stoning and other paranoia-driven atrocities committed in the name of THE LAWD. 

Speaking of which, this very same Christian group actually DID accuse a bookstore owner of being a witch who can cast spells on people. Seriously.
