If Joel’s right and HarperCollins (which owns Zondervan) is owned by NewsCorp (which own Fox which owns Glenn Beck) it means every time you buy something from Zondervan you’re helping – in a way – to pay Glenn Beck’s salary.
That’s bad. Very bad. It’s like asking the Mormon Church to buy advertising on the Logo Channel. It’s distasteful.
By the way, isn’t Zondervan the publisher that put out that vidoe game based on LaHaye’s Dreck where Christians were running around executing folk? I seem to remember something about that. Now that I hear the same company that own Fox owns Zondervan I’m no longer surprise.
In light of Beck’s insanity and Zondervan’s apparent willingness to sell games that are not only totally inappropriate, but totally Unchristian, I think I’ll take Joel up on his boycott of Zondervan. So, Joel, I’ll say yes.
