In the past few years I heard one story where a woman drowned her children b/c she thought God told her to, another where a woman tore the arms off her child as some sort of punishment she thought God wanted her to perform-the child died, and recently, the whole polygamy scandal here in TX that has direct associations with Christianity...I can't think of any crimes directly attributed to D&D.

I'm still not sure if he had any associations with the game...
So, should this misconception quit being used to discourage kids from playing a GAME?
