Sims' Trans Characters Have Christian Zealots Seeing End of Days

The Sims 4

The video game represents "modern-day manifestations of Ahab and Jezebel."

A new update to the simulation game The Sims 4 features options for transgender characters — a change that has thrown the anti-LGBTQ+ American Family Association into a tizzy.

The updated Sims 4 features many new options for players, including having their avatars display top surgery scars, binders, and shapewear. The change by gamemaker Electronic Arts sent an inclusive message to The Sims' numerous trans, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming players.

Such a change couldn't go unnoticed by the AFA, which speaks of the game's additions as a sign of the apocalypse.

"The game promotes an anti-biblical worldview of creation and reality, asserting the falsehood that humans can be 'non-binary,'" AFA executive vice president Ed Vitagliano said in a statement. Vitagliano claims the practice of "bodily mutilation is merely a new expression of ancient paganism in its everlasting war against absolute truth and decency."

"We continue to warn parents that our culture is not a place of moral neutrality," Vitagliano says. "The false prophets of sexual anarchy and gender confusion are modern-day manifestations of Ahab and Jezebel — determined to lead the nation in rebellion against God and His word. The Bible says we should choose this day whom we will serve. For the sake of our very souls, we should be resolute in our faithfulness to Jesus Christ."

Surprisingly, the AFA doesn't yet have a direct call to action against EA, but stay tuned. The AFA, now in its 45th year, "has long been on the front lines of America’s culture war," it proudly declares on its website and press materials.
