Hi everyone.

I too was raised as a Jehovah's witness and my childhood was blighted by its radicalism. I also quit as soon as I was able to, and it took some doing! The point is, parents do have the right to decide what kind of computer and video games they will allow their kids to play, because they are parents. But in my view, once you become an adult, no one, no one has the right to tell anyone else what they must or must not play for relaxation. This is up to everyone's indevidual conscience. I spend a lot of time smashing up Old Man Stanley's house. this does not mean I'm going to suddenly get it into my head to go out and start wrecking homes here. it's. a. game!


And I may also add, in case I may be accused of predjudice, that Jehovah's witnesses are far from the only Christian fundamentalists who try to tell others what to play, watch, listen to, read, think. It's not on. That is, I hasten to add, only my opinion.

Best

Lulu Keel.

Now faith, hope, love abide, these three. But the greatest of these is love.

To each his own, as long as nobody forces their religion or
religious organisations on me.
Just do not like radicals among those groups, who force
their beliefs on their kids or abandon  them when they try
to get away from it. That is taking things to extremes.

The important thing to remember is that all of us come from
different
backgrounds and beliefs. So let's be careful here on list
when
responding to something like this.

Many thanks.

Hi all
My mom  is  still today a jehovah' witness.
I was reared as a Jehovah witness but I have finally quit
them, deciding
that I do not find Jesus amongst them.
Anyway, my mom sent me 3 articles.
The articles comes from a  software package called
"watchtower library"
that baptized  Jehovah witnesses gets for a small price.
So my mom pulled the articles from there.
2 of them, reflects the view of the Jehovah witnesses
about pc and video
gaming.
Obviously, they are aming at the sighted gamer, but you
might find
interesting what  they had to say about computer and video
gaming. There is
an article about video and computer games in general  and
then there is an
article on role playing games where they made a few
negative comments.
I would very much like some of your's opinions on the
first and/or second
articles.
The third article is about toys children made themselves
in the ancient
days.
Please let me know what you think about these articles.
Me personally, I feel that the Jehovah witnesses is too
strict  but others
might differ  from me.
