FRC not happy with gays in Knights of the Old Republic

Rebel Fleet Surrenders to Gay Empire

In a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists! Hello, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. In a galaxy not so far far away, Star Wars gamers have already gone to the dark side. The new video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has added a special feature: gay relationships. Bioware, the company that developed the game, said it's launching a same-sex romance component to satisfy some complaints. That surprised a lot of gamers, since Bioware had made it clear in 2009 that "gay" and "lesbian" don't exist in the Star Wars universe. Since the announcement, homosexuals have been celebrating the news, but parents sure aren't. On the game's website, there are more than 300 pages of comments--a lot of them expressing anger that their kids will be exposed to this Star Warped way of thinking. You can join them by logging on and speaking up. It's time to show companies who the Force is really with!

I'm pretty sure I know which side actually sides with the dark side of the Force... Bioware's attitude to romance in their games (Dragon Age, Mass Effect, KotOR) is pretty liberal, but apart from the possibility of some romancing (with same-sex options)and rather chaste love scenes (the kind you see in mainstream media), there's nothing to get in a huff about - unless you are a stodgy moralist.

FIFY :coffee:

Tony Perkins can move to another galaxy far, far away without gays and lesbians if he wants. Preferably via a black hole.

God forbid we allow our children to encounter situations that exist in life on a day to day basis. The wholesale murder of fellow player characters is perfectly okay however.

He already has a singularity; it's located between his ears.
