NY Games Bill

GamePolitics has word on a proposed bill in New York State to protect minors from any game that "glamorizes... the commission of a violent crime, suicide, sodomy, rape, incest, bestiality, or sado-masochism." If passed, the bill would require such games to carry warning labels, be kept sealed from general customer access, and be available for parents to examine. The article points out the bill's vague language (in particular the use of the term "glamorizes") and conflicts with the US Constitution make it unlikely that this will end up sticking as a law as currently written.

Another frivolous bill destined to be delcared unconstitutional.

Gotta love those religious types that at desperately seeking power to turn the whole world fascist.

I think this misconception has been going on long enough. It's not just religious zealots pushing this stuff. Take a look at the records of the congressmen and women pushing this type of garbage. They are not all Bible-thumping Christian fanatics by any means, and about half of them are Democrats (the "party of freedom?" Hardly...).

It is much more a sign of out-of-control political correctness (a by-product of leftist agendas) than religious fundamentalism.
