Christian conservatives attack ‘gay agenda’ in PC game

Conservative Christian site World Net Daily is running a report on Hasbro’s The Game of Life, with claims that it is “pushing the homosexual agenda” by allowing same-sex marriage in the game.

“You know how kids are,” says one concerned mother, as she tried to overcome the trauma of thinking about gay people existing. “My daughter noticed right away (even before I did) and clicked on one of the girls instead of one of the men and then asked, ‘Mom, how come I can marry a woman?’ And then that led into a lot more questions that, quite frankly, I was not ready to talk to my 6-year-old about.

“I went back to the web site and left a very respectful review of the game just stating that this kind of thing should be left out of kids’ games, and the administrator removed my post, stating it was inappropriate. I had no idea how insidious they were being with pushing the homosexual agenda.”

You know, I’ve always wondered what this so-called “agenda” was. I’ve heard bigots push that buzz-word around but it’s never been explained. Are they going to force us all to turn gay by touching us with their hands and infecting us with their GAY POWERS? I’ve heard they can do that! Or maybe there is no agenda, and it’s just a bunch of pathetic gay-hating worms who are using sinister words without explaining them to terrify the gullible masses. Nah, that’s way too crazy a thought. 

Perhaps promoting gay marriage in a game aimed at kids is not the best idea, since they’re too young to think about sexuality. Of course, had this game actually promoted gay marriage, there’d be a debate. The Game of Life does NOT promote such a thing, it merely allows it, should a person choose to do so. Not restricting a thing is not the same as “pushing” it. 

People who go out looking for gay things might want to take a long look in the mirror and ask themselves why they’re looking so hard. Oh, Jack Thompson told GamePolitics about the story, by the way. He’s very interested in gay issues, I hear.
