When he's not leading a shareholder revolt, Jack Thompson is apparently a spokesman for God. In a letter to Take Two's CEO Strauss Zelnick, the former attorney said that Take-Two's recent stock tumble is an act of God.
Who let Jack out of his box?
The last gasps of an attention whore.
Someone needs to smack him around for blasphemy. ALL GAMING STOCKS FELL. EA is down to $15 and change from being at $48 at the start of September. Activision Blizzard followed the same trend and they have WoW still making them money. Clearly this has not just 'god' at work but rather the economics of recession. Someone please take his soap box away and give endsights a good smacking around for not doing their research.
Jack pisses me off. How is advirtisement able to not target minors? Unless all GTA4 commercials were pushed to atleast 11:00 PM, minors would still be exposed no matter how much Take2 tried not to expose them. And frankly 11:00PM isn't a great time for advirtising. A company's main goal is to earn money. I don't blame Take 2 in anyway. I mean we have viagra and condom commercials going on during the daytime and no one complains about that, even if the legal age is 14 for minors.
It's an act of God that I haven't crash landed an airbus a380 on his face.Someone should create a task force to go back in time and erase this man/troll thing's genealogy from the face of the earth.
if you see jack thompson walking in the streets, run up to him and kick him in the nads, don't worry just run away, but make sure you get it on tape, be most epic video ever...Jack thompson is as low as Owe Boll...wait wait...a better idea, Owe Boll Vs Jack Thompson in the ring, to settle whos the bigger loser of them all...
That nobody killed this guy yet? I'll be back in a minute... Jump Beyond.
I believe that Jacky Boy here lost his job was thanks to god. Well thats who I thank and my own god as well.
I wonder how would of turn out if it was M rated.
If Jack Thompson is speaking for god it shouldn't be a surprise to see a rise in atheism.
Well a true act would be you disappearing out of the media. If I didn't see or him ever again it would be a miracles. In addition stocks fall because of the economy, everyone is unstable during this period. That's just pure sad, how was this fella have a law degree anyhow?
inb4 cry baby atheist teenagers
Oh the irony...
Please don't use that guy as a Christian example. The only irony here is that some people won't look at the world through another person's view...and that goes for everybody. I'm a Christian myself. However, I see people of all religions/non-religions that think people of other religions are just plain stupid. That's not true. Not every atheist has a temper and lives in his mother's basement. Not every Christian is a hypocritical snob. These are just views we have based on what the media has told us. Ignorance is the key word here. Everyone thinks everyone else is ignorant. We'll know the truth soon enough, people. As a Christian, it makes me sad to know many of the people I love won't be with me forever. While you may not believe in Heaven or Hell, I do...and it pangs me deeply to think about the people I'll lose.
although i consider myself more agnostic(whethere there is a god or not, im going to live my life how i think it should be lived) im curious, where did u get the idea of sterotypical basement dweling atheists? I was just pretty shocked at that description ( i know you were saying that not everybody is like that) but i've never heard of that one before! (in fact i always imagined "hardcore" christians to be the type to live with the parents)
Or a life.
I thought this guy was dead. :/
Is this the same God who disbarred you, Jack Thompson?
Wait, what? I'm pretty sure this wasn't God's doing. Despite what most Americans seem to think these days, God's well and alive. Miracles happen all the time. CNN doesn't like to do reports on anything that makes you feel good though. That would be politically incorrect.
if you couldn't see that he made this thing against T2 personal, you're blind.
Wouldn't work if have pleads "insane". The consequence would be "treatment", I guess (Hopefully there is a cure for what ever he has). (LOL)
where's an assassin when you need one! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
You getting your law practice taken away must have been another act of God. Funny how God works huh Jack?
You have a Xenogear avatar. Love that game.
Indeed it is Wiseman. Thanks for noticing =)
Nevermind the fact that nearly all, non-medically involved corporations are hurting because of the piss poor economy. Oh No! That doesn't mean anything, It's all God's doing!! Self-Righteous, arrogantly-ignorant religious retards like Jack Thompson are the reason why I am an atheist! Oh yeah Jack, and all the deeply religious people that die every single day from violent crimes, congenital diseases, and starvation all over the world is a sign from God; It's a sign that God has a sense of humor!!!
i'm surprised this ubberdouche hasn't landed a gig in the Bush administration
that an act of God would take place in Jack Thompson's life and remove him from this earth for good.
I'm occasionally inclined to believe in God completely until I see he created people like you, and then I go back to questioning the whole thing again... But then again Jack did get disbarred completely, so maybe there is a God and he's trying to give old Jack a hint.
... All right, Jack... COME OUT!!! I know you're in here!!!
if so is god the reason why hundreds of thosand people are getting laid off of their jobs. :(
this guy is a stupid a** bi*ch that is pay do this, he is a religious a**hole and like lot of higher up religious a**holes they just want there money and not think of anything else other then money. if i seen this guy on the street i would punch in in the face and kick his teeth out.
let me start by saying that I hate when people blindly associate certain things as an "act of God". If we are to believe that God has given us free will.....then there is an understanding that without his proper guidance we are responsible for the atrocities in our lives....AKA God not doing, but allowing. Furthermore...his statement is ignorant, because even if Take two was to go under...........does he really think certain franchises would not live on?
