Taylor tells us that all the Presidential Hopefuls on the "D" side are banging the religion gong hard.  In addition, Hillary Clinton has been hanging out with Holy Joe and scolding folks about violent video games.

If it's really sincere and not just a cynical ploy for votes, they really need to do something about this:

A Wal-Mart spokeswoman said the retailer has no plans to pull Left Behind: Eternal Forces from any of the 200 of Wal-Mart's 3,800 stores that offer the game, including just seven in California. The nearest are in Chico and Redding.

"We look at the community to see where it will sell," said Tara Raddohl. "We have customers who are buying it and really haven't received a lot of complaints about it from our customers at this time."

Clark Stevens, co-director of the Campaign to Defend the Constitution, said the game is not peaceful or diplomatic.

"It's an incredibly violent video game," said Stevens. "Sure, there is no blood. (The dead just fade off the screen.) But you are mowing down your enemy with a gun. It pushes a message of religious intolerance. You can either play for the 'good side' by trying to convert nonbelievers to your side or join the Antichrist."

I look forward to hearing from our party leadership who have chosen to make an issue of this.  I'm sure they'll be weighing in on it at any moment.
