God botherers: the five worst religions in videogames

Edwin Evans-Thirlwell:

I have a healthy respect for religion and the religious, and believe it or not, that's quite the achievement. I'm a videogames journalist, you see, and if there's one line of thought videogames seem determined to press on us at every opportunity, it's that all religions are the work of the Devil. That's to say, an anthropomorphic personification of the human capacity for wrong-doing. Given my level of exposure, I should really be out in the streets torching churches and hanging crosses upside down, or something. (Culture, Dead Space, Dragon Age: Origins, Fallout, Halo, PC, PS3, The Elder Scrolls Online, Xbox 360)

The article is stupid, Dragon Age's chantry is in there.

"Magic exists to serve man, and never to rule over him.
Foul and corrupt are they
Who have taken His gift
And turned it against His children.
They shall be named Maleficar, accursed ones.
They shall find no rest in this world
Or beyond."

Simply Amazing!!!!
