Minister and television personality Pat Robertson and his television show, the 700 Club has been around since I was a kid; I remember him railing against the supposed evils of Tarot cards sometime in the 1980s.
Well, he’s still at it. Recently, he responded to a viewer who wrote in to ask Robertson what he thought of violent video games. Although he’s never played a video game, violent or not, he decided to respond, bringing all the wisdom of his religious beliefs with him:
“If you’re murdering somebody in cyberspace, in a sense you’re performing the act, you like it or not.” Robertson exclaimed on The 700 Club, comparing playing a violent game to other acts of “virtual sin” like lusting after a woman.
Instead of commenting on his thoughts, I want to ask you guys: do you agree or disagree? Why?
