    Christian group (FRC) vs SWTOR

    ~The Family Research Council (FRC) is a Christian group and lobbying organization...



    Do you think this kind of stuff will have any impact on the company or game considering the size of their audience and followers?

    Not only am I ashamed for fellow members of my religion, I am just... dumbfounded here. These people are just... just "ugh."

    No, though. They won't have a noticeable impact.

    Most gamers won't give a crap about a religious group's opinions on the game.

    Not to mention these guys are kind of late to the game. KOTOR had a small scene that hinted at a lesbian relationship, but Jade Empire went full boar with not just lesbians but a threesome ending as well! And those game swere made years ago.

    You gave faces to my dreams and nightmares and sparked my imagination throughout my entire life. You will be missed.

    I found it hilarious but do you think this kind of stuff will have any kind of impact on the game or company considering their audience and followers?

    I highly doubt it will, the religious types like to say "ban x game because it has y content" on a regular basis and it doesn't seem to change much, so I doubt this will either.

    You have fun with that, Tony Perkins.

    Really? Because I feel it's a beauty that people can have opinions like this even if it's considered incorrect by the majority of the population.

    What I find funny is that he looks super gay himself.... Anyway, OT: fanatic religious bigotts probably aren't a big target audience of the game anyway, so it's not going to affect the game in any way, unless the story catches on in the HBT community, in which case it might be a small boon for it.

    Also, I want to give cudos to bioware for being willing to allow relationships of all sorts.

    Fucking pathetic really, that's all i have to say.

    Yesterday it was World of Warcraft, because it had such "obvious" satanic symbols in it.
    Today it is Star Wars, because it encourages homo sexuality.
    Tomorrow they will want both games mentioned above banned, because it encourages cross dressing.

    This Tony Perkins dude is just a guy using a highly popular form of media to bring his own "hate group" (as described in the article posted by the OP) into the spotlight. He's using the Star Wars game to draw attention to his own little circle of followers. More people will join his circle = more people pay him for whatever reason (subscriptions, merchandise, donations) = more money in the pockets of Tony Perkins.

    Granted, I am religious too, but I'm neither blind nor stupid.
    Neither have I got anything against homo sexuality and all the while, I've been playing WoW for a very long time without ever fearing of going to hell.

    Tony Perkins is just leeching. Nothing more, nothing less.
