Based on the ignorance displayed in the article, I can only assume the writer has never actually read the Left Behind series. Some observations:
1)"Soon they will be able to get practice killing liberals, atheists and non-fundamentalists in a graphically violent video game to be rated Teen or Mature."
This is what is known as a lie. The website does not say anywhere that the players will be killing liberals, atheists, or non-fundamentalists. In fact, if Mr. Mathis had bothered to read the books, he would know that the forces of Carpathia (the bad guys in the video game) actually worship HIM. They are not atheistic at all. Odd that a self-proclaimed Christian does not know that, since it is in Revelation.
Actually, Bruce was played by a black man in the movie adaptation. What you should note though is that he is comparing a LAST name, Carpathia, to first names. The series saw many people of all races teaming up across the entire world. Mr. Mathis's race baiting is unseemly here and unnecessary.
3) "Conduct physical & spiritual warfare: using the power of prayer to strengthen your troops in combat and wield modern military weaponry throughout the game world. " (Forget beating those swords into plowshares and blessed are the peacemakers.)"
Mr. Mathis seems to have ignored the concept of prayer as a weapon, to instead distort Bible verses. The verse about beating swords into plowshares refers to the millennial reign of Christ, something that happens AFTER the Left Behind scenarios. Possibly, Mr. Mathis is further unaware that the Bible specifically says the opposite (beating plowshares into swords), at another point in the Bible. As for the Blessed are the Peacemakers, Mr. Mathis should have read the books to understand that it is Carpathia, who wages the war, as he is ruler of the world.
4) "Enjoy a robust single player experience across dozens of New York City maps in Story Mode fighting in China Town , SoHo , Uptown and more! " (Then after you slaughter the Orientals and bohemian artists, go wild killing in both the west and east villages before moving out to Queens to slay all those brown-skinned immigrants.)"
What is with the race baiting by Mr. Mathis??? This is disgusting and most un-Christian. The description on the website says nothing about the race of the people in the video game.
5) "The kiddies need to be learning something while they are blowing off liberals ' heads with their official Jesus M-16 rifle."
6) "So let 's burn some witches and heretics. Torture scientists who dare discover anything contrary to the church 's teachings. Conquer foreign lands, enslave their people and take their riches, all in the name of God and Jesus."
Readers of mine will know I have no love for this president or administration. I agree with Mr. Mathis that they use Jesus politically. That however does not give Mr. Mathis the right to lie, race bait, and use the name of Jesus to do so. It makes him no better than the people he wishes to speak against.
