    And the Winner Is...

    Youth ministry blogger Stuart, a "youth worker lost in the Pacific northwest," is hosting an end-of-the-year Christian Whore Awards. Who will be the winner? Joel Osteen and his bajillion dollars in book sales, or maybe The Veggie Tales folks who gave up Jesus for a coveted Saturday morning timeslot? You are even invited to add your own nominees. I personally can't imagine that list without at least a mention of the Left Behind guys. With their new video game, you don't have to waste time converting the infidels -- you just blast them out of existence!

    Left Behind Games' president, Jeffrey Frichner, says the game actually is pacifist because players lose "spirit points" every time they gun down nonbelievers rather than convert them. They can earn spirit points again by having their character pray.

    Now, doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? And to think I've been wasting time all these years teaching youth to love thy enemy!
