Radio Alert: Game-Bashing Eagle Forum Schedules Game-Bashing July 4th Guest

July 3, 2009 -

Last week, GamePolitics broke the news that the ultra-conservative Eagle Forum had filed a "friend of the court" brief with the U.S. Supreme Court in support of Calfornia's bid to have its 2005 violent video game law reviewed by the justices.

The rambling brief sought to link video games with everything from school shootings to poor grades to sudden death.

The group, founded by conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly, wades back into gamer space tomorrow when video game critic Arthur Ally appears as a guest on Eagle Forum Live, a radio show hosted by Schlafly.

Ally bills himself as a morally-responsible fund manager. In December his Timothy Plan investment fund issued a list of 30 "most offensive" video games, including the likes of World of Warcraft, Lord of the Rings Online and Halo 3.

Ally also rather famously criticized Army of Two for "somewhat homo-erotic undertones between the two main characters."

Ironically, the conversation between this pair of would-be censors airs at 11:00 a.m. Central Time on Independence Day.

They wouldn't even sign the contract, likely calling the expo a gathering of satanic worshippers.

Re: Radio Alert: Game-Bashing Eagle Forum Schedules ...

Now now. I hate to correct you, but we pagans are the "Satanic" worshippers. :P Obviously, we use our EEEVIIIL MAAAGIIIIC OOOooo! to control you to play games where we have secretly inserted messages of the Anti-Christ; kind of like when we used rock music by having the messages reversed in the songs. Except video games are our new medium.

Then we hold these expos to mass-control you all, and select a few from the crowd to bring into the back and sacrifice you in some ritualistic orgy (think "Bible Black", if you know what that is) to please our dark master and gain some of his power.

And the Eagle Forum, and the Third Wave of the Holy Spirit movement (especially C. Peter Wagner (look him up if you must; he's kind of the head behind the movement) are the only ones who can stop us. Mr. Wagnar with his prayer wars atop of Mt. Everest (Not making this up:www.talk2action.org/story/2008/12/28/13255/764) and the Eagle Forum to support them. They are out to expose us, oh noes!

 

Actually, I have no idea if the Eagle Forum has affiliation to this movement. I'd assume so, however, since it seems right up their alley.

Say what you like about the other things he said, but he's right about Army of Poo.

Re: Radio Alert: Game-Bashing Eagle Forum Schedules ...

True, but that's not enough of a reason to call it "offensive" and get it banned on that cause.

Army of Turd-burglars is offensive, but only because such an obviously homo-erotic game was made by folks who must have thought they were making it ultra-manly.  It's comical because most of its die-hard fans also think it's ultra-manly and not at all gay.  Not sure how they rationalize the 'two guys on one parachute' issue, but hey.

But at least they finally made a game that the GLBT community can wholeheartedly embrace.  And THAT'S probably why the Eagle Forum consider it offensive.

Just like wrestling!

Thank god that only idiots listen to what they have to say.

What is it about people who look like they were vacuum-formed rather than raised?

Andrew EisenI imagine they hope the clips they do host (some of which are rather long) are enough to entice viewers to watch the show on whatever channel it airs on.11/25/2014 - 5:54pm
