The Pope Condemns Video Games

Pope Benedict said on Wednesday that the media were "perverse" and harmed children when they exalted violence and trivialized human sexuality in the name of entertainment.

pedophilic maniacs draped in black suits with white collars are harmful to kids? / hmm.. nah...mainly just young boys. Now that should be condemned.

the fact that Benedict is German and speaking out against video games and Germany also wants to outlaw video games means anything?

games are much more hurtful and devastating than grown @ss men coveting little boys. that's the problem. the little boys want to play games all day instead of accepting the "Followers of God"s candy.

I agree with both your comments! This coming from a guy that only likes to wear expensive Prada shoes! This guy is a joke.

We should respect what the Pope says. He knows whats best for us and the children. Now Lets end the bikcering, turn off our systems, throw them away and pray.

Catholics/people in general treat these guys ( Popes ) as if they were Jesus Christ? I don't get it.

We Catholics (I happen to be one myself) believe the pope is the Vicar of Christ on earth, a representative if you will. I could explain why but that would start a huge theology talk that I'm not willing to go into. I respect this man greatly, and I agree that little kids, especially those annoying 12 year olds on xboxlive, shouldn't be playing violent video games and thats why there is a rating system. You can disagree all you want with the pope, but that doesn't mean you have to attack people's religious beliefs. It sucks to see so much intolerance of other people's religious beliefs on this website...

I to am a Catholic man, but in no way to I believe that the pope is a "jesus on earth" if you will. All popes are human, just like you and me. Just because they have dedicated themselves to the religion doesn't make them of a higher power. This man should not concern himself with issues as unimportant as videogames. He should be focusing more on trying to bring peace on earth, or a way to reduce world hunger and way more important issues. Videogames are not that important, and have no place in a religious discusion when they are way more horrible things going on, especailly within the ranks of the religion itself.

I'm a GOD fearing person myself and meant no harm to you are any other person with religious beliefs but the Pope puts his pants on one leg at a time like everybody else. Christ, this guy isn't, he has a mortal soul and will be judged just like You and I.
