MIAMI, FLORIDA, March 16, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) Soon, a childs online exposure to homosexual romance will not just exist in a galaxy far, far away.
BioWare, the company that created the online video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, has relented after two years of lobbying and announced it will create an upgrade that allows players to have same-sex relationships as part of the gaming experience.
Same gender romances with companion characters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be a post-launch feature, BioWare declared in an online statement. The new functions will be developed as the company releases content and features that could not be included at launch, including the addition of more companion characters who will have additional romance options.
Following the bulletin PC Magazine reported, The ability to have a same-sex relationship within the Old Republic is on the horizon.
When LGBT activists began pressuring BioWare, which is a daughter company of Electronic Arts, to let players simulate homosexual scenarios, the company declined. During an internet discussion in April 2009, a BioWare monitor wrote terms like gay or lesbian do not exist in Star Wars and closed the thread.
But homosexual and transgender activists kept up the pressure through the games bulletin board. An online poll used to express support for inclusion of LGBT characters in the game consisted of just 35 people. The Florida Family Association estimates 1.7 million copies of the game have been sold, the vast majority to young children.
The worst part about this is we have children who are 9, 10, 11, 12 years old children playing these games, David Caton, president of the Florida Family Association told LifeSiteNews.com.
Our main concern is the social engineering element, he said, concerned someones young child will see this cool looking character who is a transgender male-to-female, and says, Hey, thats what I want to be. Its something he would never think about apart from that game.
The game is a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game, in which players from around the world play online. That raises the possibility a young child will be confronted with homosexual or homoerotic scenes unwittingly as part of simple game play. Another player could choose to be a transgender and then thrust himself into the mix with other children who dont want to see trangenders, Caton said.
If BioWare goes so far as to allow, characters to role play homosexual fantasies, Caton said, I dont think they are going to allow players to discriminate against LGBT players or characters.
BioWare has incorporated homosexual relationships into the video games Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, noted in his Washington Watch Daily Commentary, On the games website, there are more than 300 pages of comments a lot of them expressing anger that their kids will be exposed to this Star Warped way of thinking.
However, BioWare subsequently deleted many of those comments, according to the Florida Family Association.
Caton said the goal is to expose children early to an alternate sexual preference. This is all focused on capturing that emotion that children have
the passion that goes with the game, and transferring it into sympathy for the LGBT agenda.
His organization allows people to send an e-mail to 13 of the top officials in BioWare, Electronic Arts, and LucasFilm.
Parents who have an interest in protecting our children from social engineering need to remain diligent, Caton told LifeSiteNews.com. Time is of the essence.

Hans was safer encased in Carbonite!
Just wanted to note that BioWare could not do this withouth the approval of George Lucas....
The pedophiles will be flocking to this. It's a whole new land of adventure for perverts to hunt in.
Have these perverted sociopaths tried to change classic Chess, yet? I would not be surpised to see a chess set offered with two kings or two queens...
To all perverts, please note, not everything is about where you stick your parts or what is stuck in you!
We’re finally go to find out the real reason that the Republic fell.
>>It’s a whole new land of adventure for perverts to hunt in.
MMORPGs have been the top PC games for about 10 years. SWTOR is just the latest in a long line of them. Although this is the first to allow homosexual relationships with a player character’s NPC companion, it is also the first to have NPC companions. Romancing your companion is just a series of flirts, climaxing (pun intended) in the screen going black for about a second and then returning the player to right were he was before the encounter. It is rated PG at most.
Remember that you play a character who kills tens of thousands of people and creatures over the course of your career(and in the SW setting, most kills are humanoid), so getting upset over the potential for homosexual encounters between a player and a non-player character needs some perspective. If you choose to play a “Dark Side” character, you commit cold-blooded murder quite often (which, interestingly, upsets your companion in most cases preventing you from romancing him/her).
Just more proof that they’re lying through their nasty teeth when they mock concerns that they’re after children. How can they not need to recruit children? How else could they continue their filthy practices and spread “tolerance” if they didn’t recruit other people’s children? It’s not as if they can have children of their own, they have to prey on other people’s children. A segment of deviants corrupting an entire nation because of their enslavement to the perverted call of their genitals. This nation will be judged.
Either someone in this videogame company is part of the agenda, or Hollywood has influenced the company.
Otherwise, the videogame creators would’ve simply told the truth: Boys buy videogames... And boys do NOT want any kind of romance in their videogames. They just want to shoot something down, practice using strategy, or solve the puzzle.
Worst Star Wars idea since Jar Jar Binks.
Are these people insane? Ramping up pressure on the maker of a Star Wars game to put homosexuality into the game - that’s what they spent their time doing? Crazy.
Don’t forget to thank George Lucas. I guess $4,000,000,000.00 net worth is not enough. Especially, when you can sell your soul for an extra 50 million......
I thought this might be from the Onion because it is so absurd. Why do imaginary characters in a video game need to have relationships at all, regardless of WHICH sex they choose???
More evidence of just how far liberalism has dragged our society into the gutter!!
And, WHERE are the voices of outrage from OUR side!!????
