Christian Paintball

Jesus with a gun

In exurban Wisconsin, in a town called Pleasant Prairie halfway between Milwaukee and Chicago, sits "North America's largest Christian paintball park," dubbed Promised Land:

"I've looked in the Bible, and can't find anything wrong with paintball," reasons Andy Leong, a 48-year-old Chicago marketing executive who's come to celebrate the birthday of his 13-year-old son, Luke. "In fact, the Bible is filled with combat as a topic."

. . . .

"There's an impression that Christians are wimps -- that they're just no fun," says Promised Land owner Rick Pinter.

"Christians can be tough and heroic."

regardless of the bibles messages about violence, I hardly think paintball really comes close to violating any of Jesus' teachings. Its a friggin' game.

Meh. Not all muslims are terrorists, not all christians are wimps. I personally know quite a few who would kick anyone's butt if they were crossed...then again these are catholics...hardcore evil burning hell stuff.

Either way, blabbing on about the bible is not interesting. A good read it does not make.
