Grand Theft Auto fans call on Target to stop selling ‘misogynistic’ Bible: Gamers fight back in war to get game back on shelves

If you’re not going to sell Grand Theft Auto (GTA) because of its ‘adult’ content then prepare for a backlash of biblical proportions.

Furious gamers are demanding that if Target and Kmart are going to pull the R-rated game from their shelves then they should do the same to the Bible as well.

Target decided to scrap sales of the popular game after an online petition slammed it for encouraging players to ‘commit sexual violence and kill women’.

The petition, authored by former sex workers, has so far attracted almost 40,000 signatures.

It says the ‘sickening game’ encourages players to kill prostitutes and calls on Target to stop selling it. But the gamers have argued that the Bible’s content is much, much worse…

    They tried to censor the GTA series before, didn’t work. It still won’t work.

    Can’t remember every seeing the Bible for sale in Kmart or Target. However, I do know that you get a free Bible when you book at hotel room for a night.
    What is it with the facebook / gaming crowd and Christianity? They seem utterly ignorant of where they come from and why we are the way we are. Utterly. Fracking. Ignorant. They seem to have this hate on for something they wouldn’t recognize even if they got hit over the head with it.
    Why pick on Bibles. Wouldn’t boycotting the women’s underwear section in these chains have a much more noticable impact?
    Gamers are like small children throwing a tantrum. So easily manipulated. I fear for civilization.

      Perhaps they should have protested against Target’s girls clothing section as a vast majority of the clothes they sell for girls aged 6-16yo make them look like the prostitutes in GTA V.
      On a side note, surely they should be going after the Koran as it contains more violent passages about Infidels and women than just about any other book on Earth!!

        The prostitot culture of the West is indeed troubling. Whatever happened to letting kids just be kids. I was talking to my son the other day (he’s 25), and was lamenting many of the things he missed that I just adored from my childhood. Sometimes change is not for the better.

    Get it off STEAM.

      Amazon sells it also. Target is just losing business by doing this. Censorship, everyone is into these days.
