Short Rant on Christian Video Games

NPR reported this week about a growing market for Christian video games. I contend that there is no such thing. That's an oxymoron. Video games are a luxury good. Buying a luxury good is not a Christian thing to do, and therefore there can be no Christian video games.

Does that also mean that there can be no such thing as an internet blog devoted to the social gospel? :)

A blog is free. It doesn't cost me anything to run and it doesn't cost people anything to access. (I.e., I don't charge.) Any public library today offers free computer access and free internet access. The fact that own my own laptop and pay for DSL internet access, however, is not o.k. I don't claim to be perfect. I know I'm not. I just call'em how I see'em.

Well, as our economist friends will tell us, time isn't free - it's an opportunity cost. A blog being an investment in open thought and hopefully action on the part of its composes and readers, however, makes this minimal use of time a good investment towards the Social Gospel.
