I know what you’re doing. You’re rolling your eyes at me because I linked to a website about religion. Well, listen up for a second, heathen dogs. The article makes some really good points about the atrocity that is Super Columbine Massacre RPG. The designer goes on about how accurate the game is. Well, the author of this article has some questions for the designer…
Where to begin? Did it include Rachel Joy Scott writing and drawing in her school notebook minutes before she died? Her journal entry — complete with a rose and 13 tears — ended with this prayer:
“Am I the only one who sees? Am I the only one who craves Your glory? Am I the only one who longs to be forever in Your loving arms? All I want is for someone to walk with me through these halls of a tragedy.”
Is that in the game?
How about some of the dialogue from the videos that Harris and Klebold left behind? After all, the killers said they wanted to start a “religious war” and they mocked a Christian girl named Rachel.
In their pre-rampage videotapes, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold discussed — in their litany of hate — how they wanted to start a “religious war” and mocked a girl named Rachel who had shared her Christian faith.
In audio tapes aired on CNN, and transcripts released by parents, Klebold said: “Stuck-up little b—, you f— little Christianity, godly little w—.”
Harris: “Yeah, ‘I love Jesus, I love Jesus.’. . . Shut the f— up.”
Klebold: “What would Jesus do? What would I DO? (Makes shotgun sound at camera)”
Did any of that make it into the game? I would assume it did.
And what about the stories of Cassie Bernall, Valeen Schnurr and others who were shot after being mocked for their faith? Some of the eyewitnesses differed on the details, but it was clear that the killers — before pulling the trigger — were asking some people, “Do you believe in God?” Where did all of that come from?
I can even add another question that has little to do with religion. Where in the game was it that one of the shooters said “there’s a nigger over here” before killing Isaiah Shoels who was black?
Where is the representation of any of the actual victims?
I’ll tell you. There aren’t any. Instead, they’re only represented by such generic names like “Black Boy” and “Religious Girl”.
Which just further proves that this is not some society changing game designed in order to open a dialog about school shootings. It’s just a poorly made tribute to two cowardly mass murderers.
