Overzelous Christians preaching in WoW (Horde) Read the thing... here are some quotes

"you can pretty much guess that there are lots of gay boys and fat little pale-faced Wiccan girls on the servers who hate themselves and escape into virtual characters so they don't have to deal with their pathetic lives. When they hear that someone loves them, even if it is just the Lord Jesus Christ, they always want to hear more!"

"I followed some stupid gnome around for 8-hours until he finally told me that he would accept Jesus as his Personal Savior if I would just promise not to contact him anymore. Now that rocks!"

"I really like our guild leader," says young Billy Houston. "He has a strict policy against letting unsaved people join our group. I think he's from Alabama in real life."

"I have a hot-key macro that broadcasts, Jesus Loves You! Please Love Him Back or He Will Burn You in Hell! PM Me if you want to learn more! across four channels."

ANYONE who spouts nonsense is welcome to my ignore list. Political, religious or what have you. *shakes head* What happened to just playing and enjoying a game for what it is, a game? And not turning it into a soapbox?

Dunno but imo they should be removed from the game. Look at this example:
Quote:
Young Billy explains that it is very simple to announce the message of God's love across the World of Warcraft game channels. "I have a hot-key macro that broadcasts, Jesus Loves You! Please Love Him Back or He Will Burn You in Hell! PM Me if you want to learn more! across four channels. I do it right when I log in. I usually get PM'd (Private Messaged) by a few characters who I then add to my buddy list. I follow them around the game, across snow-capped mountains, and blasted wastelands until they accept Christ or persecute me so much that I have to report them to the server administrators for making fun of my religion. I think I've been responsible for getting over thirty accounts suspended for bigotry directed at me because of my faith."
Basically he harasses people for weeks untill they give in or get them banned for making fun (yes you deserve it if you act like this) of their religion. Very hypocritical since they do exactly the same by saying Christianity is the only way . Maybe it's because I play on EU servers and in live in Holland that I didn't see this much crap with religion in my live. This seriously sickens me Sad Sad Sad .Ow and these guys give Christians a very bad name Sad .

Just so you all know...

Landoverbaptist.org is a spoof site. They poke fun at religion and the stories on that site are not real.

So take them for what they are... funny Cool

Me too at first... but I had this nagging suspicion it had to be a spoof...

So headed on over to snopes... gotta love snopes

On a side note, gotta say they did one helluva good job at making it appear to be a legit evangelistic loony toon site.

I saw someone make a long post on the General Forums several days ago about Religion... It got flamed pretty badly and removed a couple hours later.
