I actually believe that these battles must be fought as savagely as any other. I say this for only one reason: The antigay *don't care* how thin they spread themselves; they are prepared forever and ever to battle *everything* they see as legitimizing all sexual orientations. And even though, in these cases having to do with business, the pro-gay have all but won, these interlopers must be ceaselessly denounced and rejected, their "opinions" scorned and batted aside. After all, they have only one goal: to marginalize a minority and make that minority appear worthless and worthy of nothing.

I am happy that the democratic platform has adopted gay rights more and more, because now the average democrat is denouncing and marginalizing *these antigay extremists*, which is wonderful.

EA should thank them for the boycott, it will probably increase their sales by 25%.

McDonald's, Starbucks, etc...

Their boycotts are laughable especially since their core audience is made of uneducated people who can't afford the shite to begin with.

I assume by your use of the term "talibangelicals", that you are using it as a derogatory term for evangelicals. Please be advised that evangelicals and Roman Catholics are 2 different things. Please don't equate the two. Although evangelicals and Roman catholics may agree on some things, there is a fundamental difference between the 2 groups.

And by pointing this out, I am neither promoting nor endorsing either group.

You are correct. The telibangelicals are the easily-recognized religious nuts. The Roman Catholic hierarchy is even more easily recognized by their colorful robes and silly hats. But the Catholic laity is generally moderate and thoughtful.

There is no need to feed the pedo troll. It is counter productive.

This was an economically iffy thing for EA Games to do with it's American market.

Computer Gaming is a nearly toxic mania among Mormon kids and adults.

All the more reason to do it. It will hurt EA just as badly as GayDays publicity has hurt Disney.

People have long been hypocritical about entertainment choices. Blacks who wouldn't be allowed to dine we're invited to sing and dance. Gays who might otherwise have been relegated to asylums were not only popular but courted. The gaming industry will be no different.

i'm drawing the distinction between Roman Catholic hierarchy and laity. The latter have largely abandoned fealty to the former. And the more Catholic a nation is, the less authority the hierarchy commands.

You're going to have to expand on that last sentence.
