Jack Thompson's Letter to U2's Bono
8:31 AM | Blake Buck | 25 comments

PS3 Today recently ran an article featuring an open letter from Jack Thompson to musical group U2's lead vocalist Bono. Jack Thompson is a vocal opposer of violence in video games and the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

The letter is in response to U2's parent company Elevation Partners' recent talks to buy Take Two Interactive, the publisher of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. And abridged version of the letter:

Dear Bono:

I write you as a fellow brother in Jesus Christ, appreciative of your bold witness to the transforming truth of the Gospel, in both your words and your deeds. You daily "fight the good fight," serving Him as salt and as light in an unbelieving world. You inspire other Christians to confront the "culture of death" that surrounds us all, and I thank you. Because of what you do, it is easier for me to do what I have been called to do.

I write to encourage you, respectfully and in a spirit of brotherly love, not to purchase Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. . . .

Bono, whom are you going to believe as you make a decision whether to buy Take-Two? Are you going to believe the liars who got caught lying, or are you going to believe a fellow believer in Christ who has been targeted for actual harm by Take-Two and its dissembling Philadelphia lawyers at Blank Rome? . . .

I am trying to keep you, dear brother, from being run over by a careening bus. I do this to help you. A brother in Christ has now warned you. Now, do the right thing, in His powerful name I pray.

In Jesus Christ, Jack Thompson
