Maybe right about game violence?

General
Hi there, with recent topics about violence in the game, its begun to make me question the content of the game, as well as my own morals. Just to put it out there, I am a Christian, but I'm not going to preach my religion to you :) I'm also quite new to the game so I dont know it all, But guys please stop and think a sec, Blizzard has got us totally brainwashed by the cartoon themed nature of the game, there ARE underlying issues here that are often masked and hidden :(

think about it, we form up into gangs, then attack so called 'bosses' before robbing their dead bodies and passing around the 'loot' to other would be robbers? If we do it outside the game we would be put in jail. but in world of warcraft it's encouraged? What if people use the game as a training ground for murder?

I don't want to keep playing at the moment, my family already say I go against gods wishes by playing the game, because I told them of the old gods...they said this was blasphemous against the real lord, and with the violence that goes on, it just seems like I'm logging in to the devils playground :(
Wow another troll using a tired old topic.

Nothing to see here people.

Sorry I have no intention of taking this seriously, just another religious "it is blasphemy to play this game" type of thread which doesn't belong on here in the first place ;)
I stopped reading after the phrase i am a christian, look at history and judge violence and Christianity. it's a game, anyone who can't handle it should not be playing it.
Please try and read what i said! im not trying to ask if its blasphemous to play world of warcraft, It's what my family try and make me believe :( i play to try and escape the real world, but its hard when it feels like im doing wrong! i just want to live in a world of peace, and not be made to feel like a sinner
We team up against bosses...well yeah, not like those bosses have gangs of their own.

Fine with me if you want to.
Have fun doing what you like instead (unless it is hurting others, ofc).

Stay if you want to stay, leave if you want to leave, all the same with me.

I'll respectfuly not go into this topic.
WAR

War is an organized, armed, and, often, a prolonged conflict that is carried on between states, nations, or other parties typified by extreme aggression, social disruption, and usually high mortality.

What did you expect when you bought World of Warcraft?

Indeed, I could not agree more. People should know when they make their first character that there will be death and blood and war and killing.
Just quit and save us the whine.

You should think yourself lucky, that its not a game where the bosses are Evil religious christians/buddists/muslims/ scientologist's and its mandatory to be a atheist race, and your class choice could be burglar, theif, satanist,mugger, peado preist, chump monk, or a random generated jumped up homosapien monkey whos a combination of the above listed.
and yet people are biting to this troll thread, again.

let the never ending debate begin.

i didnt call you a christian did i? Stop being prejudice against christians - i bet you're the type who hates racism too, where prejudice is paramount to it.

you just got smashed, regardless of whether you know it or not.

I am not married to a main, and for all you know, i may be a women also.

Insanity, may be caused, by not understanding jumped up monkeys.

Im not prejudiced against christians, dafuq, i just dont believe. You just relish too much of following ppl through a forum on your mystical crusade.

GJ oh mighty whatever you are
just here to agree with Bipolarpwna, also hope this thread gets deleted soon either way, because a !@#$storm will happen and no one can avoid it.

though it seems like the weekends got extended by 5 days :p
So, someone who follows one of the most violent of religions complaining about violence in a video game.

Hypocrite much op?
