Christian bloggers protesting fake EA protest
June 13, 2009
After staging a protest/publicity stunt outside of E3 last week against upcoming EA game Dante’s Inferno, the company is catching heat from Christian bloggers. InsideCatholic says on its website, "It’s been clear for a while now that the entertainment industry views Christians on the whole as priggish, thin-skinned fun-killers," further wondering if "anyone at EA even read the Inferno."
Catholic Video Gamers fires an even more direct shot at EA’s Dante’s Inferno, saying, "Instead of engaging in a shamelessly anti-Christian stunt to promote your poor excuse of a product, maybe you ought to work on making this game, you know, something better than a blatant God of War rip-off." Wait, isn’t Christianity all about forgiving? Oh well! Hopefully EA will think twice next time it decides to fake a protest and instead choose protesters without any major religious affiliation.
