Killing Nuns Is An Achievement In Red Dead Redemption (In Real Life, Not So Much)

By 05.20.10

Ok, we’re all familiar with video game fun being misinterpreted by the media…like the Grand Theft Auto: San Adreas Hot Coffee mod (Why wouldn’t you want your kids to know how to have good, player-controlled sex?) or the Dante’s Inferno “Bad Nanny” achievement (Sure, you’re killing the souls of unbaptized children…but the operative word here is “unbaptized.”).

So the latest one that ill-informed reporters on Fox news will soon be reporting on is from Red Dead Redemption, where you can get an achievement called “Dastardly” if you tie a nun to a railroad track and watch her get run over by a train, creating a spray of bloody nun-chunks. Now, of course this is just a reference to the classic “Snidely Whiplash” tying-a-lady-to-the-railroad-tracks technique. But, of course the media’s going to read some sort of anti-religion stance behind something that’s really just misogynistic.
