#4 on the list is Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified. I think they're onto something here. I blame all of societies ills on BAD video games.

You did something there, and I saw it.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 7:37:10 AM PST
Good point. This ultimately reinforces the disturbing truth: no matter what, people will blame everyone and everything except the person responsible.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 7:38:24 AM PST
Oh of course. There always has to be something else besides them.

My favorite so far is "We need to teach more religion in schools, it will cause less problems"

First of all I call BS on that, second of all, they didn't mean more religion, they meant Christianity specifically. Which in the end I think would cause more problems than solve.

How does learning about Christianity cause more problems?

This is why it annoys me when people say something like
"remember the days when people were held responsible for their actions?"

The answer is no, I don't think those days ever existed. If it was comic books it was rock and roll. And before that it communists. Even further back it was witchcraft.
Nothing has ever been anyone's fault.

Please watch the South Park episode Go God Go! Parts 1 and 2.

At the turn of the 20th century it was novels. That's right. Novels.

Personally, I think Christianity teaches good morals, but that's neither here nor there.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 7:43:35 AM PST
Yep. South Park. That's where I'm gonna go for my theological commentary.

TBH, violent video games, movies, etc. all probably DO contribute in some small way to these things. I mean, it comes up every time, and every time the reaction here is "OMG, these guys are so stupid!" Maybe we are the stupid ones, because it surely keeps happening, and the correlation always seems to be there. Sure, video games might not contribute, but we can't really prove it one way or the other. How desensitized to violence can someone become by shooting/killing people all day in CoD, or watching violent movies? I don't know the answer, do you? I don't think tv/movies/video games will turn a sane person crazy, but they might have some kind of effect on an already crazy person, which I think we can all agree that these psychopaths are.

Well, there are clearly things (video games, movies, books, etc) that will influence peoples' behavior. That can't be denied. But to outright blame the thing, rather than the person, is false. If anything, the blame should be divided between the person and the thing, with the inanimate thing receiving less of the blame.

South Park is a fictional show. I don't usually get into religious debates but you sound like a jerk. I think if people learned more religious values in schools, society would be better overall.

Christianity does, Christians don't always.

Ice King says:
I disagree. I think if religion was taught in schools, the crazy people would just kill everyone in a religious based way.

It doesn't matter what they're exposed to, a psychopath will always be a psychopath.

Good point. The messenger often gives a faulty interpretation of the message.

Though we do appear to have more psychopaths. Personally, I blame the fluoride in the drinking water.

Not true. What about "thou shall not kill"? How many lives would be saved if the principle was taught in schools?

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 19, 2012 7:51:46 AM PST
YES! And the Shadow People!

SMH says:
You know - this isn't really a principle that should need to be taught. A toddler could tell you that killing is wrong.

Religious fanatics have been coming up with ways around that "thou shall not kill" rule for centuries.

It doesn't matter. God's law was rejected time and time again throughout scripture. Yet, the scriptures say that "His mercies are new every morning" and that applies even to murderers.

Surprisingly, its not the worst spot as long as you take it with a grain of salt.

The rule is still there. The reason people do not want it taught in schools is because it won't allow the military to get people to go to war.

...ya, or...something like that.
