Some Don't Like BioShock's Forced Baptism. Enough To Ask For A Refund.

This article contains minor Bioshock Infinite spoilers.

Baptism, thematically, is important to some of the questions Infinite poses: can a person find redemption? Can we atone for our sins? Can someone who has committed grave atrocities be forgiven? Traditionally in a work of art we understand baptism as a means of undergoing a rebirth, something which the game also touches on (BioShock: Infinite, Culture)

So murdering and maiming hundreds of people is fine, but he takes issue with a pretend baptism?

There lies the problem. Why is this guy getting angry over a forced baptism in a video game but not murdering thousands and stealing in a video game?

Also, it's Booker Dewitt that gets the baptism, not you. This isn't Mass Effect or The Elder Scrolls where you're supposed to feel like you're the protagonist. This whole thing is just a ridiculous publicity stunt anyway.

Like most oversensitive people they feel that it has some unseen deeper meaning to it.This is why people leave out racial and religious symbolism in games. Someone will always find some meaning in what you do even if there isn't one. And if anyone points out you are being oversensitive and/or paranoid they lash out at you because you don't want to join in the outcry and start getting even more pissy about it.

I am a Christian and believe in God and everything and nothing in Bioshock made me feel any different. I am guessing people whose faith are weak always seem to think something is leading them astry and have to jump at everything.Like once someone was telling me Care Bears are evil because they mislead children into thinking they are up in the clouds instead of God.Did anyone ever think that when they watched that show?
