I Am A Satanic Occultist;This Industry Is Full Of Hate & Propaganda Against My Religon

www.games4m.com repond to the article "I Am A Christian; This Industry Don't Give A Crap About Me"

My name is Rob Bateman and yes, I'm a full-on demon worshipping satanic cult member, and I also happen to be one of the founding members of www.games4m.com. It's no secret that I love, and appreciate the art form that is video games. But something is definitely wrong with the direction the industry is carelessly racing in without anyone stopping to ponder how this might be affecting those of us within certain religous minorities and how we might be offended by what we see in video games every day.

Lets start with the game that set the downward trend into religous intolerance - Doom...

The story is too old to be commented.

"Be nice to the bad guys" is all I really gathered from this.

DannyVenom2685d ago

Here we go again, why are we getting labeled as 'the bad guys'? There is a serious issue of double standards here.

Tony P2685d ago

I admit. I laughed.

Funny parodies are funny.

Timesplitter142685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

Suddenly, out of nowhere, a good article on N4G.

I just hope you guys understood what the author was trying to say. It's a perfect response to the christian article.

Rocket Sauce2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

I dunno, Christians have got it rough...

Therealspy032685d ago

not sure who would disagree with you, Timesplitter. maybe they didn't get that this is a response article despite the very first sentence.

HolyOrangeCows2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

"Why are we always the bad guys" below the zombies is hilarious.

If the other article was "I think there should be the option to censor language and nudity in games" instead of "I'm a christian, thus I think there should be the option to censor language and nudity in games", the article would have hit MAYBE 200 degrees and THIS article never would have existed.

Cerebellum2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

Sarcasm aside, I want my 3 minutes back after reading this pure sh!t article. And to the idiot one or two above me, Christianity is under persecution and has been increasingly so, anyone who studies the Holy Bible and reads the book of Revelations can see that this is all expected, which is why us Christians aren't surprised by what we see or the harassment we experience.

Darkfocus2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

I would have laughed even harder if they were serious.

Government Cheese2685d ago

Oh I get it, this is a response to the I am a Christian gamer thingy.

sikbeta2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

Satanic? really? wow, you must feel a Real Man by being "satanic", right?

Whatever-Religion and satan-whatever got nothing to do with gaming, so, what's the point?

Lets just lave it at that, funny or not, people can feel offended by this article

Obama2685d ago

"Christianity is under persecution"

Well I am sure stopping priests from molesting little boys would solve the problem.

@Cerebellum

(my reaction to your comment) http://www.youtube.com/watc...

But seriously, how do you think you are being harassed? Do you consider people making fun of religion on the internet persecution? You must have a very low tolerance for what you consider persecution. You want to compare your persecution to an atheist/agnostic? Ok. Are you constantly told that when you die, you will suffer and be tortured by all eternity while burning? No? Well how about having your kid (or you whenever you were young) being denied entrance into the scouts because of your beliefs?

No? Okay, well how about having your car windows smashed or tires slashed because you had an emblem proclaiming your belief that you felt proud to advertise? No? Hmmm, well how exactly have you been persecuted other than people making fun of your beliefs on the internet?

HolyOrangeCows2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

Has there never been a doctor that committed murder?

002685d ago

that sounds like indoctrination to me, and believe you me I would know a thing or two about indoctrination.

Tachyon_Nova2685d ago

What are you talking about Obama, priests don't molest boys, they cure them of their sexual energy using the hand of God.

Sikbeta obviously didn't understand that the article was a joke, oh well, there are always some people who don't grasp sarcasm and ridicule, even in their most basic and obvious forms. One last thing Sikbeta, if you or anyone else religious is offended by that article, then they need to harden up. I simply can't comprehend how religous people can be offended by such simple things, but not bat an eyelid at the things written as commands from the almighty in the Bible, Koran, etc, which truly are horrific. Religion in all forms, quite frankly, is an offence to common sense, morality, the truth, and those who value world peace.

@ 1.15 - Exactly, religious people always moan and complain about being persecuted, they wouldn't know what the word meant if you printed it on their holy book and smacked them in the face with it, even though they dish it out daily, by abusing people who have different beliefs, or even those that don't follow theirs to the letter, and trying to scare and harrass people into 'fearing' a God who is apparently so loving.

Thankfully I don't live in America, because from what I hear of it, there are so many nutty, murderous, and just outright discusting religious people over there. Even so, it's not all smooth sailing over here in Australia either.

Obama2685d ago

"Exactly, religious people always moan and complain about being persecuted"

Kinda ironic right, when Christians have been prosecuting people through out the roman era/middle ages/today.

TheDeadMetalhead2685d ago

I don't know what's funnier: the article itself of the people on here taking it seriously. XD

Nicaragua2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

Some of the reactions on here are a lot funnier than the article itself.

MmaFanQc2685d ago

Great article, i did a facepalm when i saw the "i am a christian...bla bla bla emo ray hit me"

ExgamerLegends22685d ago

Hm, I expected as much though. In todays society, asking for moral consideration is asking to be attacked by athiests. And the only arguments they seem to be able to produce are "Bu bu bu teh crusades", "Bu bu bu persecution" or "Bu bu bu you cant force your morals on me. (showing their lack of understanding about what the crusades were about, lack of knowledge about anti christian persecution and showing how illogical and inconsistent athiesm is) One can only hope these ppl will never hold high power in society.

Nicaragua2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

He's a satanist, not an atheist - and your showing your lack of understanding by not acknowleding his religon and simply branding him an atheist. The author believes in a god, it just happens to be the god of the fiery underworld.

And before you start preaching about people coming into power you should cast your mind back to the the bible bashing prat that was George W Bush - look what his wholesome Christian values did for America.

ExgamerLegends22685d ago

"He's a satanist, not an atheist"

I wasnt referring to the author. And I wasnt talking to you. That comment was directed at 00. Because your comment was misguided i'll choose not to fully address it, but i will warn you to pay attention to the context of a discussion before jumping head first into it. And read the Bible.

Raz2685d ago

Why is a skull wearing another skull as a pendant in that picture? I mean, it seems kind of redundant, doesn't it? Why would a dead guy wear another dead guy as a fashion accessory?

Now, if he was wearing the baby's head from the old PS3 commercial, THAT would creep me right the f*ck out - and it would actually make some kind of sense.

As Apatheist I can say that the arguments made by theists and atheist are mostly poor fallacies with no actual facts backing up anything.

Atheist commonly use:
"there's no proof so it doesn't exist!"
Theist commonly use:
"Because we can't explain it it must be done by god!"

Both are close minded arguments which can also be considered as fallacy. Ignoring millions of other possibility. But in the end if some1 want's to believe in fairies and faith brings him joy, why should we judge him/her? However using god or religion in argument or in rational discussions is one thing I can't simply stand.

Imo Religion should be taken as far away from science, laws and governmental choices as possible. It should be kept on the level of a "hobby" or interest.

Tachyon_Nova2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

@ 1.27 - You don't understand what you are talking about. Atheists don't say "there's no proof so it doesn't exist!", we say there is no evidence for gods existence, so we choose, as seems only logical to me, not to believe in a 'god', especially given that there is mountains and mountains of evidence supporting other theories of how the universe, and more recently, life, began.

Let me put it to you this way. I read this example in a book from Richard Dawkins, I'm not sure if he came up with it himself, I can't remember. In any case, he asks, if it is the commonly held belief that there is a teapot orbiting the Earth, that is too small for us to detect, would you believe it blindly? Hopefully, you wouldn't.

"But in the end if some1 want's to believe in fairies and faith brings him joy, why should we judge him/her?" - Um sorry, but you just judged both athesists and theists, calling them close minded. You see an inconsistency here? And in any case, if all that people did believe in are 'fairies' and the likes, then there would be no problem. But when you have millions of people in the Muslim world who actually believe they will go to heaven with more virgins than anyone could possibly need for killing unbelievers, then we have a pretty big problem on our hands, don't you think. Or are you so close minded that you think these people aren't actually doing what their religion tells them to do?

On a side note, aside from religious people, who are obviously closed minded, agnostics are also closed minded, for believing that there is an even chance that god does and doesn't exist. Sure, we can't prove that god doesn't exist, after all, how do you prove that something that doesn't exist? But we can look at the evidence and make an informed decision as to whether a god does or doesn't existm and currently, the evidence is stacked 100% in favour of atheists.

ExgamerLegends22685d ago

Thank you for proving my point.

Apatheists are no different than Atheists. Surely if you do not care whether there is a God or not you wouldnt be here on this thread. The case for Theism isnt "we cant explain it so it must be god." In a nutshell it's more like, "it cant happen naturally so it must happen supernaturally. And this is based off studies we can explain.

Theism is the only logical belief because there is a basis for morality. An atheist has no basis for morality or logic. Some might argue a God is not needed for morality or logic but that would be like arguing that there is no air. The fact that you can even form words to make your argument proves that there IS air.

Nicaragua2685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

"Theism is the only logical belief because there is a basis for morality. An atheist has no basis for morality or logic"

You have got to be kidding me ! People dont need religon to tell them what is moraly right or wrong - its called decency and common sense.

If you only do things that you think are right because you think God is watching you and will punish or reward you then thats not being morale at all - its simply sucking up to your deity of choice.

Secondly there have been horrific atrocities commited in the name of all the major religons whereas there has never been any similar act commited in the name of atheism. Religon is only good at being "morale" within its own religon.

ExgamerLegends22685d ago (Edited 2685d ago )

If there is no God then man is the highest power, meaning that man decides right and wrong for ourselves. Whats right for you isnt right for everyone so you cant say that anything is wrong (including rape, murder, or theft.) You bash religion for mass murder? I ask you to tell me why murder is wrong. And atheists are responsble for Columbine.

''Secondly there have been horrific atrocities commited in the name of all the major religons whereas there has never been any similar act commited in the name of atheism.''
like what slavery?, white man when to america to be accept by Amerindian than being prosecuted by them. white man killed them than makes them slave but they were not strong enough so they started dying.
what are saying it religion that cause them to do that? thats a lame excuse

later black people being slave. again are you saying religion make you do that?

WWI, WWII, gulf war and all that religion again?

Hiroshima bombing is religion too?

genocide in africa was religion too

Hitler kill jew, religion too? even if he was worshiping the occult?

are you people really being serious about blaming religion for every major thing ?

Rom8282685d ago

What a joke!
