    Battlecry: The War is Coming

    Yep, we infidels are scheduled to be punished. The Dominioists are a wacky fringe, you say? Well, the Battlecry tour cost millions, and there are armies out there willing to remake America in the image of their god.

    And, the training will start young. Via Pharyngula:

    Are you ready for the hot new game of the 2006 Christmas season, Left Behind: Eternal Forces?

    Imagine: you are a foot soldier in a paramilitary group whose purpose is to remake America as a Christian theocracy, and establish its worldly vision of the dominion of Christ over all aspects of life. You are issued high-tech military weaponry, and instructed to engage the infidel on the streets of New York City. You are on a mission - both a religious mission and a military mission -- to convert or kill Catholics, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, gays, and anyone who advocates the separation of church and state - especially moderate, mainstream Christians. Your mission is "to conduct physical and spiritual warfare"; all who resist must be taken out with extreme prejudice. You have never felt so powerful, so driven by a purpose: you are 13 years old. You are playing a real-time strategy video game whose creators are linked to the empire of mega-church pastor Rick Warren, best selling author of The Purpose Driven Life.
    Maybe Australia wouldn't be so bad after all???

    Nice preview at eurogamer. Looks like the return of Gog and Magog. Can't wait for the end of the millenium - I know I won't be raptured.
