I'm not the slightest bit religious, but I have way more respect for people who are and leave others alone instead of the assholes who think criticizing them is somehow enlightening.

I stopped being surprised at just how much religious bigotry exists on the Internet long ago, and Bluesnews is definitely no exception, but I agree wholeheartedly with the quoted portion of Mad Max's post.

I'll be the first to bash a Christian who gets on his or her moral superiority high horse on things like sex, drinking, or gay marriage, but a guy who happens to proudly avail himself of his religious denomination while reviewing games is not an affront to anybody, and all this unwarranted scorn and mockery serves to make those who consider themselves enlightened or intellectually superior appear just the opposite.

And this guy is doing a service for gamers, anyway. He's being fair and saying these games aren't bad. Over the top and trying too hard to shock? Sure. But not going to send you to hell, or teach you to kill and make you a murderer, or whathaveyou.

He's looking through a specific lens but being very, very fair and open.
