So if you’re a gaymer, you might have noticed how videos games as of late are including gay content, Dragon Age II, Mass Effect 3, and with the latest announcement, Star Wars: The Old Republic. Pretty awesome right? Well Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, is calling out for his listeners to barrage Bioware with comments “to show companies who the Force is really with!” in a radio bulletin entitled ‘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 just don’t understand how this man can obsess about gays more than most gays! And it’s a damn video game, give me a break!
