Kotaku: Famous evangelical old person and all-around bigot Pat Robertson weighed-in on video game violence, despite never having played one in his life.
I am a sinner
How about worrying about those people on their churches who play Doctor with little boys?
You are a sinner, I am a sinner... We are all sinners! And we are loving it! I love sinning!
As the demon from KISS, I have been sinning since 1977. The 2600 is where I lost my purity.
meh. Hell always seemed like a better place. Sex, Drugs and Rock n Roll. Add videogames to the equation and its a done deal. Its better than dealing with pretentious religous zealots in heaven braggin in your face about how right they were.
Oh no.... This means I'll actually be forced to play Diablo 3....
Pat Robertson is a piece of crap. I think we all know that by now. He promotes intolerance among anyone who isn't him. I really hope that if there is a heaven and hell, that there's a special place in the latter reserved for him.
You're only a sinner if you believe in God. If you don't believe in God, then you're only responsible to the people around you, which makes you a better person, imo. So I'm glad to be a non-believer, and I don't get too worked up when someone tells me I'm broken, because I know it's not true.
I am the biggest sinner on N4G.
I'm sinning right now
We're all sinners according the gospel. So that means all sinners eat, breathe oxygen, and take a crap. Lol, this guy and his logic.
Games are evil Games are sin Sin is forgiven So games are in...
A well known quote of Jesus is "let he who is without sin, throw the first stone." Although unknown to many, Jesus also said "let those with sin, quarter circle forward punch."
Tyrone Biggums said "let he who is without sin, cast the first stone...and I shall smoketh it!!!" Damn I miss Dave Chapelle.
sinner right here patty.
Funny thing is Jesus said we are all sinners. That's the whole point. Jesus died for the sins of the world hence you are cleansed of them. I'm pretty sure God doesn't care about me playing dead space. I think he cares how I treat my fellow man and that I let Him guide me in this open world quest called life. People like Pat and the bible thumping retards really irk me because they give Christians a bad name. Its like using the crips and bloods as examples of my battlefield clan. We're both a "gang of brothers" but one of us robs and kills humans in real life the other robs you of your tank and ammo.
Amen to that
compared to our politicians, you are a saint. they are the ones making dirty deals and selling out our future. they are the ones okay with all the violent shootings since they refuse to fix our loan rates, tax code or increase the availability of jobs.
Religion is for the sheep that need that mental crutch to help them deal with cruel reality. There, I said it.
This old guy is a walking corpse and his the shit that comes out of his mouth each time he opens it, is no longer relevant in this day and age.
Who does this man think he is separating people like this?
Glad sinner since 1988
God forgive me for i have sinned...
considering your pic is of Kratos.... would that be zeus you are asking for forgiveness?
I am enjoying being a sinner
I'm proud to be a sinner.
Oooo I feel like a bad boy for being a sinner `-`.
I feel so ashamed!.../s
Technically, that's a true statement, since every human being is a sinner. But playing games in and of itself, a sin? Give me a break. Even as a Christian, I facepalm when this guy talks.
every human is a sinner if you are religious. If you aren't, it is a silly human construct.
I really didn't see the need for your comment. It seems like you have insecurities about your own belief system or something.
Unless they believe what you think is right, right?
Yeap, by judging others it doesn't make him any better...
Cause I'm a picker I'm a grinner I'm a lover And I'm a sinner I play my music in the sun.
I'm a joker I'm a smoker I'm a mid-night toker I get my lovin' on the run
He could die for all I care, Old Fart.
Oh Patty... this coming from a glutton hoarding all that 700 Club wealth to himself over the decades.
HAHAHAHAHAHA!! That is the most hilarious thing I've ever heard. Somebody shut this soccer mom up (nooo, I don't mean kill).
Does this mean that there wont be Uncharted 4 in Heaven? I'm off to go rape and murder then I guess. (LOL JK don't send me to prison, it's a joke Canadian Mother.)
Too late, the cops are around the block.
We are all sinners even if we dont play video games. But as Jesus said and showed, instead of stoning people to death (judging) for their sins, we should show compassion and love toward our fellow man.
What with the dislike ? Typical N4G people
The dislikes come from us people who can't stand for the misplaced arrogance of religious sheep
A lot of people hate religion just for the sake of hating religion. It's a bit sad really (and this is coming from someone who is a strong atheist). Religion isn't good or bad people neither is atheism or agnosticism. They're just sets of beliefs and as long as people aren't being bigots (ala pat robertson) or killing people who cares?
@abort "The dislikes come from us people who can't stand for the misplaced arrogance of religious sheep" What arrogance? What was arrogant in what he said? The true arrogance here is from you, with your superiority complex and lack of tolerance for the chap's religious disposition, even though what he quoted was extremely 'positive'. Look at yourself before you call others arrogant. Maybe you should invest in religion, if the concept of respect and humility escape you.
@bass4g and Septic Well said.
Well, duh. Everyone sins in one way or another. This is one of my favorite ways, though!
I do enjoy articles were we can all come together against one douche.
Hey, Kotaku and Pat Robertson! Two "outlets" that deserve each other!
They're just mad because there's not a Jesus game out. Wish they'd make one though, super powers, all that. Or a game where you get to play AS JESUS before, during and post-crucifixion! Be sweet and educational. Thou shalt not play thine PS4
Why this guy felt the need to write an article about one guy who had something negative to say about his hobby I'll never know.
We are all sinners so he is correct... his point is borderline idiotic
You saw a borderline!?!? That was just plain asinine!
You give my ass a nine? Why thank you! You're too kind.
Yep i'm a sinner. And i'll be loving this. http://www.gamersyde.com/st...
This is why I hate over-religious people. They say that everything and everyone that THEY don't like is evil. Most of the stuff that they moan about wasn't even originally in the bible. It just got added in over time because of the views of different cultures and bigots.
So true. They just add random stuff in to fit their agenda.
Keep going. Keep connecting those dots and you will eventually see that god was created in man's image, not the other way around. God is just the manifestation/alter ego of people's fears and prejudices. Have you even noticed that god hates all the same things that its followers do? They use god as a middleman, as a vehicle for their hate so that they don't have to carry around the responsibility and hate. They can just say that something is god's view, not theirs, and that they are just following his way. People say "god hates fags" but what they really mean is that they hate gays. By using god, they justify their behavior and avoid being seen as homophobic, racists, or whatever it is they use this idea for.
I don't want to be banned again over this subject but you dude just blame religion without looking for the reasons. As we all know that Gay bring diseases and destroys the human nature. It's not forbidden because GOD says so , there are reasons that it's been forbidden. Imagine a human do sex with animals , it's something have to stop at any cost. There are limits in people mind , bring a child who never knew about gay people and tell him what they do and see his reaction , it's human nature to go against something that disgusting . Most people with different believes are against gay for these reasons . Your point of view of GOD is yours but don't tell me that gay people are normal and an opinion . Your logic means that other bad things like stealing is alright since GOD hate these things too . Yes , there are people who use the religion as a tool for their agenda but don't judge all the religion because of these people . There are good and bad people in every place and religion.
You are weird. They bring more disease because they have more unprotected sex, gender has nothing to do with it. And maybe its good that they don't reproduce, theres already enough orphans that need to be adopted and we don't need to overpopulate anyways. And gayness is normal. Look at your dog. He's probably gay and you aren't turning gay by being around him so whats the problem? Most straight people are douches anyways, so if there's nicer, gayer people around then I'm all for it. There are good religious people but thats the same things as saying there were also good Nazi's that didn't kill anyone. They were still part of an oppresive regime. Just like there are good KKK members right? Not everyone in a cult/religion is a hateful person, but they still belong to a hateful group that tries to prevent gays from getting married and other ancient discriminatory practices. Get help. You sound like you are sad.
@14Feb-R...Damn...that sounded straight out of the Reagan handbook of 1980. Okay, so people say "Gay bring diseases and destroys the human nature." Umm...you can't "bring" a disease. Spread maybe. You know why? It was a CLOSED COMMUNITY! There were only so many gay people to have sex with, so just like the common cold in a school building, it's a bit easier to spread. That's common epidemiology. A child that never knew about gay people wouldn't be influenced by prejudice. Therefore, the child would probably not react. That is, until the rest of the world influences his or her thoughts. Human nature is to be curious of surroundings, to use experiences to dictate life lessons. If it WAS human nature to "go against something that disgusting", then less people would be gay and even more wouldn't be tolerant of the lifestyle. The Bible has been the excuse for many intolerable acts by humans. If the Bible, the GOOD BOOK, is meant to spread the word of GOD, then why not quote GOD on it? Because HE says NOTHING about it! People said many things in the Bible but GOD, on the other hand, says few.
Wether you married or not in GAY people you still get diseases . They don't produce a life because they are not meant to be together. We are not animals. We have an inteligent brain and we should live a life where the good is more then bad , for example alchole , Yes , they have few benifites like forgeting memories or something like that but the bad in it is way more then the good that's why my religion forbid it , GOD don't forbid something because he just want to do it , he forbid it because it's for our interest , to live a good live. Same with the subject about gay , i don't see anything good comes from it because that's not the way our bodies work. Another example is the pigs , he's an animal , in your logic it's alright to eat it . But tech discovered that they have worms in their meats . You see what i'm saying ? . I'm not mad , i'm just stating my point of view ^^ ..
@14Feb-R Ignorant fool. There isn't a single thing wrong with being gay. The same way I don't see anything wrong with you being religious, even though god CLEARLY doesn't exist.
Well , if that's what you think then alright , at least you know why it's forbidden now and you can't deny the diseases. I didn't bring you words from our books or anything like that , i brought you a scientific fact here . Next will be nothing wrong with having sex with animals and then machines . No limits will lead to chaos and that will lead to disaster and we will worth that disaster(curse). Just like what i said , if you want the truth judge the religion it self not the people . We have religion because we need it so we are not perfect. My religion revealed the reasons why gay people should be stopped. You think it's wrong prove it not just say it's normal.. Thank you for your kind words ^^ .
God or no God, you put your thing in another man and you could die from it. To hell with the spoken word, It's in the human code.
Happy sinner here!
There is way worse to do than play video games.
Only idiots listen to Pat Robertson.
