The computer game appears to involves violent religious fanatics; did you think they would use Muslims?
One computer game isn’t that important, except that it represents a much bigger and growing trend, like the series, The Handmaid’s Tale, and the unrelenting war on Christianity under the guise of “resisting” President Trump in the fake news media.
Here is a recent teaser for Far Cry 5, a popular game franchise:
“Far Cry 5 will tell the story of a militant Christian cult, if a piece of artwork released today by publisher Ubisoft is any indication,” reports gamer site Polygon.
A shocking promotional illustration features a group of flannel-wearing bearded rednecks sat around a table in poses similar to that of “Jesus’ Last Supper.” […]
The characters are armed and a slew of guns are strewn across the table with apple pie, a bible and red meat nearby. A bound and beaten man with the word “SINNER” carved into his back sits in front.
Every time we suffer another ISIS-inspired terrorist attack, the public is lectured on how the dare not associated Islam with violence or terrorism or the oppression or women. But the same people who tell us that Islam does not promote terrorism and that we must careful not to say otherwise lest we cause Muslims to embrace terrorism (!), constantly engages in imaginative dystopian fiction associating Christianity with these things.
Obviously, any religion can be misused, but it is a matter of public history that Christian commitment had a great deal to do with movement that brought about social progress, like the anti-slavery campaign of William Wilberforce and the civil rights movement led to Martin Luther King, Jr. So what justification is there for attacked Christians and glorifying Islam?
