I'm in shock over it.. i don't even know what to say, pancakes maybe?
Syrup, bacon and sausages.
*I find it hilarious though that this suggestion comes from a religious leader. I find it odd that we still listen to religious leaders after they proved to everyone that they can't be trusted, time and time again.* *Shrug* I guess instead of going after the problem, like bad parenting etc, we should just attack video games specifically. Sounds like a good idea.
Another excuse to extort, uhm... "regulate" an innocent industry.

I have posted on this forum for the last 5-10 years. I am asking anyone who hasn't seen it to watch this till its end. (The intro is a bit meh).

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.- FARGIN_WAR

Instead of taking responsibility for people, they want to make money out of everything in the name of freedom. Maybe you get soon a beach tax if you want to wear a bathing slip or lying in the sun topless :P.

I've been playing video games of all kinds since they were invented and at age 40, I don't own any weapons and have been involved in 0 violent crimes.
I guess I'm doing something wrong.

Just because you own a weapon, doesn't mean you are violent. Please shut up.
Personally I find the fact that every ridiculous statement made by some religious leader is deemed news worthy quite irritating.
He should stick to his superstitious nonsense and leave issues such as tax policy to experts in that field.

I agree. If any church wants to get involved with anything political. Then they need to start paying taxes. Otherwise, all religions can GTFO.
