Extreme religious groups actively make the world a less cool place to live. Whether it’s Islamic extremists detonating themselves, fundamentalist Christians gunning down doctors, or neighbours in Northern Ireland throwing stones at each other over different interpretations of the same book. These people hijack religion to enforce their own cultural beliefs, and it’s our misinterpretation of this reality that creates the divide between those with faith, and those without.
It’s also the reason games have largely avoided tackling religion, despite it being one of the most interesting aspects of life. Some games such as Mass Effect and Bioshock have done a great job of utilising it in interesting ways, but we still haven’t reached the point where Islam can be portrayed without a suicide bomb.
You’ll all have to help me understand if the statements in the video are accurate.
