The interview may be a joke, but some of you aren't far behind.
you don't understand how to change things, yet, do you?

there's a difference between telling people what is wrong/immoral, and teaching them what is wrong/immoral. doing what they did, does nothing. it changes no part of society or anything. the only way to eliminate things like this is to make them socially unpopular, and sitting on a high horse and preaching about how bad it is, just makes people want to do it more.

people only change when they want to change. and things like sexual content, profanity, abortion, etc., will only become unpopular when society as a whole deems them to be unpopular.

Christianity has a huge impact on our culture, and guilt about nudity is a prime teaching of Christianity. That's why we are so bothered by bewbs on TV and the pagan Euros aren't.

I re-reading mezkal's post after listening to that video, it make me think he is all the more pathetic. To bring religion into this is just stupid. Go take a Paxil
You didn't watch the vid at first, yet you comment on this thread and you call me out on bringing something that doesn't relate to it? Way to go little black pot. As you said you hadn't even seen news item prior to making your first post.

To comment on a discussion without having any knowledge of the matter being discussed is the very definition of stupidity.

If you support the view that what they say is true that Mass Effect is some laviscous sexfest you truly are pathetic.

I wanted Shepherd to blow a load all over shiny Asari ass and was quite disappointed in the lack of pornmanship that went into this game.

If anyone could possibly be outraged by this game, they seriously need to have sex with the light on atleast once and try not to quote the bible whilst doing it.

i just find that whether you believe in God/The Bible or not, society is what sets the moral standard, and moral standards are cyclical. look at the progressions from the 20's to now. there's at least 3 cycles of increasing moral standards and loosening of moral standards.

Can FOX talk about them without insulting the viewers' intelligence?

Also where exactly did I insult Christians? Did I say anywhere in my posts that they were bad? I talked about the conservative right wing political push that uses religion and specifically christianity (along with 'Americanism') to manipulate people, something that FOX News has been accused of doing more than once and by better, more informed people than me.

There is definitely some truth to this... but what tool/standard is used to convince people to tighten their standards and censor videogames. It's often religion.

In terms of nudity, the shame of adam and eve is invoked everytime that Janet's boob shows up on TV. We all have nipples, but for some reason it is a sin that she expose hers. It strikes me as very strange. Maybe the Bible isn't the main reason for this and I'm totally of base here, but I can't think of what else it would be.

I don't see how Christianity has anything to do with the bad view on nudity or whatever by the media.

I found on wiki that approximately 79% of people in USA were Christians in 2001.

Compare that with say my home country of Romania (eastern europe) where 99.9% of society is Orthodox Christian, and yet nudity on TV (and etc.) is not frowned upon. You can turn to most cable channels at around midnight and there'll be a boob or something.

something i will never understand, why is US media so paranoid about ass or a boob.

In Poland (and probably rest of Europe) you can turn on a TV at 2pm and see a bare ass or a boob
So how the hell can you say this?
Quote:
Because we have a culture of shame propagated by Christian fanatics.
I think the original video post is more of a ignorance of people of FOX News as well as that psychologist, I don't see what it has to do with religion.

Note how that woman said "studies show adolescents can't see the difference between a video game and reality" and also how they're making a big deal from what is really no nudity at all in a M-rated game. That's what they complain about? That's just stupid. It's like some guy on the original link comment said "like some kid is gonna play 15 hours of Mass effect just to get some digital half-boob".
