Dungeons and Dragons will destroy your life

1 min read


Look at those damn Satan-worshippers. Huddled around a desk, having fun and rolling d-20 die that were blessed by Beezlebub himself I reckon. Damn kids! They should be in a church! The kind where Pat Robertson can milk ‘em like a Capcom franchise!

That’s the view of the original crazy evangelist Pat Robertson, according to this CBS clip via Destructoid. According to the diminished faculties of Robertson, Dungeons and Dragons is a game that he has no idea about whatsoever, but he does know that it’s a game that has “literally destroyed peoples lives”.

Well, kinda. I should have known that my level 2 bard was no match for that level Omega World-Smasher from the ninth ring of the Screaming Cascade. Damn, I miss that character of mine. Oh, and don’t worry. I’m not going militaristic atheist over here.

I just have a problem with an evangelist that has defrauded people with everything from faith healing to monthly tithes, while labelling non-Christians and the Scottish as devil-worshippers, having something to say about some desktop role-playing fun.
