Grooming little fundies for a holy war

13 10 2006

A while ago I posted about a Christian violent video game called Left Behind: Eternal Forces, based upon the series of novels by Christian Reconstructionist Tim LaHaye. There is a good post about the game on Political Cortex, which mentions that it has been described by some as “orientation software for the Christian militias of a coming religious war in America.” The post also looks at the background of the game’s developers, and questions to what extent the militaristic rhetoric of the game itself, as well as of the “Kids on Fire Summer Camp” that is the subject of the documentary Jesus Camp, should be taken literally.

Worth a read. And if you get bored, you can always convert some heathens yourself with “Billy Graham’s Bible Blaster.” Just follow this link, open drawer “F-H” and click on “Rod Flanders”.

Hi AV, Barley here! Your blogpage is finally giving me something besides a blank page! Anyway, it heartens me to see the book entitled “Faith Tempted” by Kuo bringing out the fact that Bush and the Repubs hold the fundies (ah, how wonderful to be able to use that word again after so long) in total contempt! I do hope that story will be a prolonged headline grabber. It’s about time!
