    Was both amused and saddened when I read this. To the question, I suppose it depends what kind of media coverage this gets but, personally, doubt any rational human being is going to take that very seriously. At best it will either be amusing or tragic to them. The good news is that we have a lot of precedents about this kind of silly witch hunt. Most modern phenomenons, particularly video games and roleplaying games, have always been the target of this kind of nonsense. It goes back to the days of D&D and TSR.

    No publicity is bad publicity. A handful of people will take this seriously but they weren't likely gonna be PC gaming anyway. This does however get the word out about star wars to a much larger group of people.

    You don't need to be an extremist to think terrible things about homosexuals. Infact, I think you'll find it's quite common amongst "real" Christians to do so.
    The Bible says it's wrong and whatever else it says about it, so a "real" Christian would ofcourse think so as well.

    You think it is right that they can demonize gay people? You think it is "beautiful" that they have the right to do that? You think it is right for them to preach and spread hatred?

    Not surprised that this is happening. Am surprised it took this long for someone to throw a shit-fit over it.

    That's what it's about, so in your defense I'd say you aren't religious. Maybe you're just agnostic.

    I don't really think same-sex relationships should be in Swtor, but I also don't think it's a big enough deal to cause such a fuss about. It won't affect any part of my game, and probably 95%+ of the game so they're really trying to make something out of next to nothing.

    murdering, backstabbing, greed, hate, anger, power, domination, and little regard for human life....

    all terrible things that describe the empire

    and these people are worried about homosexuality

    fucking trolls

    As a Christian, I sincerely apologies for the actions of other so-called Christians.

    and the mortal must put on immortality"

    the truth is, there arent that many "real christians" , a lot of people say they are christian, but that is just by birth, the number of people going to church and participating is much much less than the number of people who say they are christian, also not that everyone in prison seems to be christian

    Even wierder that people who don't believe in said god should be punished for doing things or being who they are.
    I just wish religious nutjobs would stick to arguing between themselves and leaving non-religious people alone. We aren't part of their religion, thusly we shouldn't have them bothering us or trying to tell us what to do.

    I would hope that not enough people actually care about what that idiot says to have an impact.
    When she was just a girl, she expected the world, but it flew away from her reach so she ran away in her sleep and dreamed of para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise, para-para-paradise every time she closed her eyes..

    I lol'd.

    You know, whatever you do in this world, there's always going to be AT LEAST one person that is going to absofuckinglutely hate and despise it, no matter what it sodding is.
    I'm telling you this because you don't get it. You think you get which is not the same as actually getting it. Get it?

    There are no same sex relationships.

    My Character is female, all my companions are male, a male lizzard man, a male twilek a slightly gayish male robot.
    And a male human, there are no female companions no homosexual stuff being shoved down my face.

    So i see no problem, also im Christian this guy is not.

    I wonder if/when people will realize that "Christians" like this are akin to Al-qaeda is to Islam. (Not exactly the same, but think of it... conservative zealots of a religion...)

    Also, I am a Christian and I have no problem with this. The argument of IRL same sex relationships aside... as someone above mentioned "pixels offend God?" By that same notion of "pixels offending God," when why aren't they throwing their arms up for males playing female toons and visa versa?

    Right, because being religious means that you have to completely follow a book that is chopped and changed to reflect the believes of those who are teaching from it.
