This is interesting stuff.
It is unbelievable to see this debate being twisted by spin to such an extent that having an R18+ classification is now being promoted as something that will benefit children.
How does introducing new violent media into Australia benefit children especially when we know that these games will inevitably find their way into the hands of children?
The Australian Christian Lobby seems happy to cling to arguments that have been debunked by legitimate research, and claim to represent citizens who have already made it abundantly clear that an R18+ rating will help protect their children. There comes a time when you have to accept that you are wrong on an issue and, Mr Lyle Shelton, this is one of those times.
