RE: Can a "Jehovah's Witness" play video games
I don't know for sure... I think they are frowned upon.

When I was growing up surrounded by JWs, I was often told that I "shouldn't be playing them".

When I was 10 my favorite thing in existence was The Simpsons, most of the other kids I knew from the Kingdom Hall were forbidden from watching it. Me and 3 other kids were punished for making fart noises once...

When I was 13 they gave me a book explaining how wanking would make me either blind or insane.

Also, I remember a 7 year old being punished for being a fan of Star Wars.

They're basically a cult of puritan twats...

Why would you ask a bunch of atheists a question like that? Huh

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

There is no arguing that they are clearly against anything with a magical aspect. The force, harry potter anything that isn't god magic. even if the child knows that is completely fantasy.

I know a couple of devout JW's, they play fallout3, minecraft and skyrym with me.
I guess its their or their local churches interpretation of the guidelines.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".
