That is the problem with religion, people think they know what is good for everybody else, my opinion on this is if a person does not like something that I am doing then they need to get a life of there own and let me do what I have the right to do as an adult.

Subject: [Audyssey] mota


Hi tom and  all
I'm desperately needing advice. my mom got a fit when she saw me reading an e-mail with regards to mota. I assured her that I will not play games on her computer which is against her principles. you see I belong to the religion:
jehovah's witnesses.
they believe that playing certain games like games containing violence or
the supernatural is sin.they refuse to accept it that a game is only a game.
when my mom saw the word tomb hunter she immediately asked me: what is a
tomb son?
its where dead people is.
so she assumes mota has to do with the dead and therefore its a sin to play
mota.
I told her what tom had told us, that mota is based on greek myths and
legends.
so my mom replied: exactly, so this game you want to play has something to
do with idolatry.
how on earth can I explain to my mom that mota is not a harmfull game.
she doesn't want me to play the game on my pc as well.
of course its my pc and I'm adult and she can't decide for me but she will
continuously nag or put the elders on me until I listen to them and I like
mota, I'm not going to listen to them.
I'm going to purchase mota.
in the past elders confiscated music on my computer violently by pulling me away from my computer. my mom hates sod just as much, she feels sod is also
a sin to play.
but tom I would like your 2 cents view on this matter.
can you or others tell me why the jehovah witnesses view games like mota as
a sin and is mota really sin to play?
thanks
