the "left behind" video game is finally here. thank goodness.

not only does playing on Christ's team involve killing people (um, what about matthew 19:16-19?), but the game also teaches religious tolerance:


Players can choose to join the Antichrist's team, but of course they can never win...the enemy team includes fictional rock stars and folks with Muslim-sounding names, while the righteous include gospel singers, missionaries, healers and medics.


When asked about the Arab and Muslim-sounding names, [Left Behind Games' president] Frichner said the game does not endorse prejudice. But "Muslims are not believers in Jesus Christ" -- and thus can't be on Christ's side in the game.


"That is so obvious," he said.
