    First off big fan of the podcast. Thanks as always. One thing about the topic of video games. Violence is a different ball game when the user is controlling the violence and getting rewarded for it. This is much different from watching the violence on a movie or TV show. You rape the hooker and kill her.(grand theft auto) It is the controlling of the violence that messes people up.

      Hi Paul,

      Thanks for the feedback. I think that’s a great point. While I still think they were reaching a bit to find something “dramatic” about Elder Murray, at the same time, I have heard firesides directed at men when I was at BYU-Idaho that talked extensively about video games, but moreso the fact that men were spending more time with video games than with their wives/family.

      But I think that area is going to be something that is interesting to monitor – I hope I don’t come off too much like a prude, but that’s one of the reasons why I have actively stayed away from anything with Grand Theft Auto.

        No prude… the only thing I play is angry birds when I have some think time on my throne. TMI?
