    Outraged Over 'Grand Theft Auto' Ban, Aussie Gamers Petition to Ban the Bible

     Australian gamers, furious about the decision by two large retailers to ban a popular violent video game, have started a petition to ban the Bible. 

    The petition, posted Dec. 4 on Change.org, has already attracted more than 20,000 signatures. In an obvious parody of arguments in favor of banning video games, the petition claims the Bible “encourages readers to murder women for entertainment” by “commit(ting) sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get 'god' points.” It calls on Australian retailers, including Target, to pull the Bible from their shelves. 
    The petition is the latest in a series of satiric attacks by gamers Down Under designed to protest the ban by retailers Target and Kmart, who have refused to stock Grand Theft Auto V. The Australian retailers banned GTA 5 in response to an online petition posted this week calling for the move. Nearly 50,000 people havesigned the anti-GTA 5 petition, which calls the game “misogynistic” and responsible for “fueling the epidemic of violence experienced by so many girls and women in Australia.”
    Australian gamers have countered that the popular video game carries a R18+ rating, meaning it cannot be sold to minors, and that it has been on sale for more than a year, apparently without incident.
    Grand Theft Auto V is the best-selling video game in history. The title racked up more than $800 million in sales within 24 hours of its launch last year and has since grossed close to $2 billion for game maker Take Two Interactive.

    1. You are only supposed to WAVE the bible .......actually reading it will destroy all belief in these "great" men. Numbers chap 30 is a compendium of war crimes,rape, murder.

    2. Ferguson SHOULD have been about uniting America around police militarization and abuse but Obama, Sharpton, et-all have turned it into a RACIST kid-gloves for "People of color" and all Police(Whites) are bad scenario. They are all AFFIRMATIVE ACTION COMMUNITY PARTY PLANNERS, just like their Leader. YOU/YOUR TAXES pay them to coordinate things like this. Why do you think the focus is ALWAYS on Black victims, and Whites are ignored.

      For every black killed by the police, 3 whites will share the fame fate.
      Meanwhile Obama REFUSES to demilitarize the police even as he pretends to support the protestors.

    4. Hmmm
      It just like the hiring process for City and State workers. You know, I hire your brother, you hire my sister. Only now they take it a step further one guy gets sued by this family and then another gets sued by that family ....Think of the possibilities.
      Or looked at another way, only government workers can get away with committing crimes over and over again, get caught red handed and not get fired.

    5. Which of the 500 different existing versions of the Bible should be banned.


      The Bible was written by Zionists and so was the Koran.
