Star Wars same sex marriage in game? Found this video in a Christian Youtube channel

I found this video on one of the channels I'm subbed in youtube.  OnKneesforJesus4

They describe this feature as going to the Dark Side. This might look like trolling but it isn't this is from a genuine christian youtube channel. I think this is a good thing shows Bioware cares about all gammers.  

Apparently some christian gamers and parents dont want this feature implemented.

    Just as many (or more) don't care or DO  support it. *shrug* I couldn't care either way. It's just another soapbox to allow a 'group' to get a tidbit into the news. (Not saying right or wrong, just that it is an opportunity)

    someone else reported on this recently saying that the whole homosexual romance thing was because one of the SWTOR writers (already forgot her name...) loves to put this stuff in BioWare games. 

     

    it's as if she's obsessed with the topic and needs to put it into every single title.

    I personally think it's due to her lack of imagination and some weird need to stir the controversy, but that's just me.

    Since it can be avoided with the dialogue options, I do not see what is the point of this. Typical fundamentalist rhetoric.

    Honestly I think this is probably some bs from someone that hates the game.

    But if Bioware implemented this they would only win points in my opinion. Sexual descrimination is reserved for the ignorant.

    As religious groups object, I think it's only reasonable that this is implemented immediately.

    Ah religion.. the dark side of humanity.

  • LeetheLeethe Posts: 876Member Uncommon

    Funny thing. The bible says a lot more about the evils of divorce than it does about same sex marriage. When I see fundamentalist groups picketting divorce courts I may begin to take them seriously.

    There is NO miracle patch.

    95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

    Hope is not a stategy.

    So is he trying to tell us that Jesus hates gays and homosexuals? Since when God acts like a petty human being?

    As long as done right who cares,  it shouldnt be an option with every romanceable character but no harm in it being for some and just so long as its not as in your face as Anders :) in DA2.

    Nope. God hates sin, never sinners.

    So God has made this very clear that being gay is a sin? is that so?

    Both statements are "false".

    Countless "issues" in the new and old testament regarding these matters, and much more.

    You have trouble reading or something? God hates SIN and not SINNERs. I.e. he would hate homosexual acts but not homosexuals and yes, I believe homosexual acts is a sin like I believe sex outside of marriage is a sin as well. Does not mean God hates people who have sex outside of marriage.

    Wait what? To stir the controversy? You mean homosexuality is still a controversy in civilised parts of the world? then I think it is an excellent idea to 'stir the controversy'.

    Are you sure it is me who can not read? i am also talking about SIN part not the sinners which would be gays according to you. That is why i asked if you are sure that GOD said that being gay is a sin. I don't see from where you read 'God hates gays'.

    The Force > The Bible

    I laughed my ass off when i watched that, so no homosexuality exists in the galaxy far, far away?

    Im simply going to say Goran Beviin....the EU can't be wrong Bioware and 3 years before your announcement we met Goran, a homosexual Mandalorian. He's there in the enclyclopedia for all to see.

    You know what,  the damn christian screwed it all up with interpretation.  God hit the reboot button and gave us the Koran over a thousand years ago.  Its nice easy and user friendly/.  Heck its the mac of relgious text.  Get with the program already you outdated snuff.

     Being gay is not an act, it is a state hence God, imo, would not hate persons being gay but rather performing homosexual acts. Being gay means being attracted to same sex, not neccessarily doing anything.

    And yet i doubt that GOD really cares for such petty issues.
