I’m a gamer, and I don’t have a religion. So while searching Bing for funny Skyrim-related sayings, I stumbled upon this fools blog, http://christwire.org/2011/11/is-skyrim-teaching-your-children-how-to-perform-rim-jobs-and-other-homo-erotic-sex-maneuvers/. Now I grew up in a nice Christian home with loving parents and we went to church every Sunday. I also grew up watching my dad kill zombies in Resident Evil on the PlayStation. That was back in the ’90’s before the rise of Jesus-freaks. Today, my religious views are different and instead of watching someone play, I’m the one with the shotgun.
My parents are still very much hell-bent on having me come back to their god (threats have ensued), but after taking the time to find out what I don’t believe in, and seeing the church continuously spit out “followers” such as this, I’m set on staying away.
From the start of the post he is bashing Skyrim and Blizzard Entertainment, which actually had no part in the making of the game. He claims the game is gay, too realistic (?), and apparently, dragon porn. This is a video game; completely different from porn. Side note – were pie charts really necessary? Had he actually done ANY research he would know the character does not “fling devil DNA juices at each other after a long night of fecal frenzy ass assassinations.” The article is riddled with grammatical errors and misspelled words which is annoying in and of itself. How can one begin to believe this man’s credibility if my six-year-old can spell better?
To top it off, insulting the gaming community and the non-religious wasn’t enough, he goes after homosexuals. There is nothing wrong with them, their choices, or their actions. They should be treated with the same respect as anyone else. They are not lepers, whatever your pastor says. Do I feel like a lesbian after playing Skyrim? No! I just decapitated you in one swift swing of my glass battle axe. I’m awesome.
It goes without saying I am disappointed with the church; you and your people should be ashamed. Aren’t you supposed to embrace us with love and forgive us our sins? I throughly enjoy Skyrim and am proud to be a gamer and not a nut-job. For all your hard work, Bethesda, the 1% thank you.
