This is from the news section:

Quote
WoW and Religion
This article has to be one of the most unusual I've encountered on the net of late. Apparently, several World of Warcraft users preach the Word in the land of Azeroth.
Billy Houston, a Landover Baptist Senior High youth, has been sharing Jesus in the virtual gaming world for over three years. "I evangelized in Lineage 2, Everquest, Diablo, and a bunch of other games," he says, "but I haven't seen nearly as many people who are as open to hearing the Gospel message as I have inside the World of Warcraft." Billy has what gamers call, a Level 57 Undead Priest with Holy Focus.
Enjoy!


Supposedly this article is a hoax from a satirical site.  Caydiem has said:

As far as I know they are allowed, it's just that rarely anyone does them.

There WERE people evanglizing in EQ.    Well.. maybe only one.   But I saw it with my own eyes.  But yeah, the "Landover Baptist" stuff is a joke.   It gets people all the time though.   They have a whole web-site.

You should have seen the response of one forum user when I posted "The Top 10 Things to do with a Gamecube."  However, I was glad to see that this post was taken off, especially since it wasn't a valid story.

I love the fact that there are still people that take Landover Baptist seriously  biggrin  They do a great job of using verbatim biblical text to base their wackiness on smile
