Diablo III, a PC role-playing game (RPG) which was just released worldwide 15 was ordered to be pulled off shelves and prohibited retailers from selling them after the Supreme Court (SC) granted the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) a temporary restraining order (TRO). The church group found the game to be “too “evil” and “anti-Christian”.
Jobert Jeyes, a CBCP “Gaming Priest”, advised players from the Philippines to refrain from playing the game which he deemed as the work of the devil. “The title alone says it all.” says Jeyes
He also suggested players to bring their copies of the game to the nearest church in their vicinity for it to be burned by a CBCP representative. Players who would bring their game for burning also has the option to repent and confess their sin for playing such game, “before it’s too late,” added the gaming priest.
CBCP suggested other non-demonic games such as Tetris, Fight Night (featuring Manny Pacquiao), or even The Sims; where players are allowed to procreate with their partner as much as they want without the option of contraception. “One of my favorites,” quipped Fr. Jeyes.
All I can say is it’s obvious that he doesn’t understand the game. Kinda like how the CBCP does not want to understand the RH Bill.
Why are they so damn serious. Its just a game!
….and why do many people believed this news….it’s just satirical mock news!
