“Game of Thrones” fans are one committed bunch. However, a Ghanaian pastor believes people, especially Christians, should stop watching the HBO series. The final season kicked off in April 2019, and a number of fans worldwide are caught up in the last episodes of the TV series.
The pastor, identified as Victor Eghan, says the show is evil. He states that it contains 865 deaths, 17 rapes (including attempted ones), 144 scenes of n***d people (with 83.7% being women). Also, the pastor emphasises that “Game of Thrones” is not what Christians should watch.
Here are facts on which the pastor bases his “Game of Thrones” views.
“Dear Game of Thrones fans (who say they’re Christians), please forgive me in advance. I’m not a fan of GOT. Just watched a few episodes years ago. But I came across some statistics and facts that may interest you.
17 rapes (including attempted ones)
144 scenes of n***d people (with 83.7% being women)
“In 2016, HBO was in a legal battle with the p**n website, PornHub, over the site’s use of s#xually explicit clips from GAME OF THRONES, which HBO states breaches their copyright of the content.
“According to data from PornHub, the site saw a 4% drop in traffic (that is, a drop of about 2.4 million viewers) during Game of Thrones’ season 6 premiere back in April. The site saw similar traffic dips over the next four weeks when new episodes aired, suggesting that people are, presumably, watching the show instead of p**n.
“There are a LOT of p**n stars in Game Of Thrones. Jessica Jenson and Samantha Bentley, winner of the Adult Video News Award for Best Group S*x Scene, have both played prostitutes on the show. Australian amateur p**n actress Aeryn Walker was also cast as one of Craster’s many wives. While Sibel Kekilli, who has played Shae also starred in adult films in the past.
“Dear Christian and Game of Thrones fan, is this the kind of content you want to fill your mind with? What happened to Philippians 4:8? Is this the kind of things you want your daughter or son to engage in? R**e, murder and immorality?
“If you’re so attached to Game of Thrones that you’re getting angry with me, then who are you worshipping? GOD or GOT? One letter makes a big difference. And that one letter change can make a big difference when you stand before GOD on that day.”
What is your take on this?
