OMG

You can't make this stuff up!

New Article

Hilarious or sad, I'm not sure which.  I don't know if this belongs in the Off-Topic forum, but it's gaming related, so I'm putting it here. icon_biggrin

You sure this isn't some sort of late April Fool's stunt?  slywink

EDIT: Just read the article. It's definitely an April Fool's thing.

Are you sure? It was just posted yesterday. It seems rather unbelievable, but then again, Kansas is a little on the edge in these regards.

Protestors from the Calvary Glorious Christ Church Militant and Triumphant Baptist Temple gather singing hymns and burning Pokemon games.

That's your dead giveaway. Something like this would be all over the national news.

Actually, having grown up in the Bible Belt, I can assure you it wouldn't be.

However, this part really makes me believe you're right:

That and Eduardo's heads-up.

Teachers will now be required to search their students at the beginning of the school day to make sure that they aren’t carrying any copies of the game.

Kansas' infamous Board of Education were fired and replaced with more reasonable people last elections otherwise I would have totally fallen for this one.

It's funny (or sad, depending how you look at it)  that Kansas has this reputation.  Thankfully the story isn't true.
