No matter what game or sport becomes popular, somebody will find a reason to call it evil. The fundies said the same thing about Magic: The Gathering.
When I was in college, a friend’s roommate was disturbed by the sight of my Magic deck. One particular card, the Atog, upset him a lot; it has a picture of a spooky-looking creature with glowing red eyes.
He asked to speak to me privately, and warned me that my soul was in danger. In a low voice, with complete sincerity, he said: “One day soon, this creature will come to you… and it will offer you power.”
I grinned manically at him, opened my eyes really wide, and growled, “You are too late, mortal! This one’s soul is mine now!” (Well, actually I didn’t do that. But I was so tempted. =B^)
Laugh hard; it’s a long way to the bank.
