Are Christian games better than secular shoot'-em-ups?

Plenty of feedback on Rob Blincoe's piece regarding Catechumen, the Bible Belt's answer to Doom. Naturally, the Good Book is a ripe source for gaming material, as Dan Moyer points out:

Here's an idea for a Christian game. You're Samson and you're in a battle with 10,000 un-Godly enemies. You find the jaw-bone of an ass and use it to beat the brains out of all 10K heathens. Then you go back to your crib and make out with a hot babe who gets you drunk and stoned then steals your powers by cutting off your hair then rats you out to the fallen priests.

They take you to a prison and poke out your eyes with burning sticks. But eventually your hair grows back, your powers return and your crush the babe and the priests and all the other 'un-saved' under a pile of huge boulders and rubble when you rip the building down on everyone.

Who needs AK47s and Mac 9s and grenade launchers? Praise the Lord.
