Pat Robertson: Sinning in Video Games is the Same as Real Life

Well, I’m boned. According to the theological scholarship of CBN’s Pat Robertson, virtual sins are the same as real sins because you’re still sinning in your heart. On the one hand, it’s good to know that my affinity for show tunes and a filled-out speedo are the least of my barriers to entering the kingdom of heaven. On the other, I’m gonna need a rosary 5 miles long to atone for Lemmings alone. Start adding in all the other players I slaughtered in RIFT, Unreal Tournament, and Team Fortress 2 and the rest of my year is booked.

You can watch the wingnuttery for yourself. The video is 10m long, but you only need the first 2 unless you really wanna know if it really is sinful to have tattoos.

    Oh Pat Robertson, is there ANY crazy-fundie lunacy you won’t subscribe to?

    Pretty sure God is the only one that can know what’s in my heart, and he’ll be the only one to judge me. Not this nutcase. Course, doesn’t stop the nutcases from trying. lol

    I hope God has a sense of humor about my beating cops to death with a massive purple dildo.. I like to think he does.

    I guess reading the bible must be sinful if you have a vivid imagination, since then you would be imagining killing people.
