If, like me, you're looking for last minute presents for the devout(s) in your life, you probably can't go wrong with the new video game from (the aptly named) Left Behind Games. Eternal Forces is a game in which "players must either convert or kill non-Christians." The website claims that AOL.COM believes it has: "a positive moral message." However, according to a story in the SF Chronicle, others, including some "liberal and progressive Christian groups," aren't so sure.
Apparently the game's creator sees this as a pacifist game, although all the baddies have Muslim sounding names and you earn points by mowing them down. Wal-Mart is carrying it and refuses to pull it off the shelves.
Murray: I've ordered a copy for you already.
