God Isn't On Thompson's Side

Many of you may know that Take-Two interactive is suing Mr. Jack Thompson for threatening Grand Theft Auto IV way before its release date. Gamedrift starts this /rant with a letter he wrote regarding this issue, and to prove that Jack Thompson is solely using God as his bodyguard:

"I have been praying, literally, that Take-Two and its lawyers would do something so stupid, so arrogant, so dumb, even dumber than what they have to date done, that such a misstep would enable me to destroy Take-Two. With the filing of this SLAPP lawsuit last week, my prayers are finally answered.

This lawsuit, filed in US District Court for the Southern District of Florida, is, without a doubt, the single dumbest thing I have ever seen any lawyers do in my thirty years of practicing law -- while in continuous good standing to do so with The Florida Bar, I might add, the shock radio and video game industry's efforts notwithstanding.

I encourage folks to read Psalm 35, a Psalm of David, which is brilliant in its entirety (since God Himself wrote it), but for those who don't own a Bible or who think their hands will catch on fire if they touch one, here is the salient portion that applies to this lawsuit:

7 For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul.

8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation.

The pit Take-Two has dug for itself will be patently clear next week when I strike back. Oh, and by the way, the entire Take-Two management and board will be gone on March 23, so this pit-digging comes at a very bad time indeed.

Amen, and Praise be to God Almighty, maker of Heaven, Earth, and yes, the maker even video games.

Jack Thompson

I've got to say I truely Love this man, He's hilarious! He's an idiot and completely oblivious to it!
Heres my prayer 'Please make a Televison network sign Jack Thompson up a for a weekly Live stand up show'. It'd be the funniest thing on TV! :D

See,how my boy is the only one marching in time!While i truly respect Mr Thompsons motives,because lets face it, who the hell over the age of fifteen is gonna play GTA ? I do think he is slightly ridiculous in his condemnation of many games he attacks.With GTA however, i think he has a point. It's marketed as adult, but clearly from my experience, its mostly kids playing it.We do have to safeguard our young from dodgy distributors. Just ,because you have good lawyers doesn't make you truthful or good people,it only makes you legally correct on the day.

jack thompson needs help, i mean mentally. the closest mental hospital or some deserted island all by himself. with no food to eat. doubt he would survive 2 days. he is such idiot. always sticking his nose in other peoples buisness. what does he have spy cameras in every home and business. what poeple do in thier own homes and what companies do is none of his buisness...!! he is the only person i know in the world who gives a darn what other people do. jack needs to worry about himself at possible seeking mental help. before someone else puts him there... didnt jack get caught looking at porn a while back!! maybe it was just a rumor!
