    Deus Avertat: Rule of Law

    In this role-playing/simulation game, you are the hero Cardinal Law, Archbishop of Boston. Your goal is to manage turmoil in the congregations of the archdiocese. Relocate child-molesting priests to keep parishioners from revolting, maintain secrecy and the good image of the Church, negotiate with police and prosecutors to "handle" the cases within the Church, all while raising enough donations to pay off endless civil settlements. Only players who have what it takes to hang on for several decades of play will achieve the final reward, a full retirement package including a $5000 monthly salary, a housekeeping staff and even a personal chauffeur.

    In this game, would giving and receiving of sexual pleasures, trade-offs, etc be part of the "managing the turmoil?"

    Let me put it this way, Rev. The "MA" on the box wouldn't stand for Massachusetts.

    They fit in as one of the requirements of beating the game. You basically have to spend enough of your resources to educate them about the role of women in the Church so that they'll be good and subservient enough to clean your toilets during retirement.

    Well, I certainly hope there is not a lot of fine print so to speak, like all that VES stuff that Ivanhoe is always copying and pasting. I'd just as soon get Grand Theft Auto.

    Quickly following my first and second thoughts were the realization of the accuracy of this. There are retirement homes for priests and there are nuns who are pleased to be able to do their housekeeping tasks (i.e. cleaning, laundry, etc.). I'll go puke now.

    Hardly gender-discrimination. Religious brothers also happily submit to such menial chores. It is one of the distinctive features of the Carthusian order, and once upon a time, the Jesuits.
