Purpose Driven Life: Game


TRIBE Member
Fucking Nutjob Christians

Imagine: you are a foot soldier in a paramilitary group whose purpose
is to remake America as a Christian theocracy, and establish its
worldly vision of the dominion of Christ over all aspects of life. You
are issued high-tech military weaponry, and instructed to engage the
infidel on the streets of New York City. You are on a mission - both a
religious mission and a military mission -- to convert or kill
Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, gays, and anyone who advocates
the separation of church and state - especially moderate, mainstream
Christians. Your mission is "to conduct physical and spiritual
warfare"; all who resist must be taken out with extreme prejudice. You
have never felt so powerful, so driven by a purpose: you are 13 years
old. You are playing a real-time strategy video game whose creators
are linked to the empire of mega-church pastor Rick Warren, best
selling author of The Purpose Driven Life.

The game, slated for release by October 2006 in advance of the
Christmas shopping rush, has been previewed at video game exhibitions,
and reviewed by major newspapers and magazines. But until now, no fan
or critic has pointed out the controversial game's connection to Mr.
Warren or his dominionist agenda.
