Jack Thompson Blames God For Take-Two Stock Drop


Posted December 30, 2008 - By Patrick Roche-Sowa

Oh Jack, even after you've been disbarred you still bring us countless hours of entertainment.

On Friday, Game Politics reported that our old friend Jack Thompson is planning to lead a stock-holder's revolt against video game publisher Take-Two, in hopes of taking down their chairman, Strauss Zelnick. Sounds like the usual crack-pot idea that Mr. Thompson regularly pulls out of his crazy ass. But that's not the funny part.

Game Poltics staff member Dennis McCauley had a rather hilarious e-mail exchance with Jack Thompson where he claimed that the recent drop in Take-Two's stock prices were an act of God and His retribution. You've got to read the whole thing for yourself, it's just too good to pass up. Hit the Read More link to check out the entire conversation.

Take-Two dropped $2.35 to $9.72 in extended trading after the announcement and fell as low as $9.60. The shares... have declined 35 percent this year. The results contrast with comments Zelnick made in an interview on Nov. 3, when he said sales of the company’s video games hadn’t been hurt by the recession...

So, if T2’s business reverse was God’s vengeance, does that mean that God struck you down too when you were disbarred?...

...If you had any understanding of the Bible and of God you would understand that persecution comes Christians' way, and we are blessed by it.  There is no blessing for Zelnick, who is not a Christian, when he gets what he deserves...

...Are you saying that problems for Christians are blessings, while problems for non-Christians are vengeance from the Almighty? Also, how do you know what Zelnick’s religion is?

Here's another passage of Scripture that you don't understand and never read:  "All things work to the good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose."  That group would include me and not Zelnick.  Zelnick is not a believer in the Gospel.  How do I know?  Because the man who got us together [secretly in Manhatten in 2007] is a Christian, with a massive ministry in Hollywood and the rest of the entertainment industry.  It was because of the spiritual aspect of this struggle that he got the two of us together, and Zelnick failed the test. 

If you knew anything about the Gospel, you would understand further that Paul, whose writings are considered part of the canon, tells Christians, not unbelievers, that we are to "count it all joy" when trials and tribulations come our way. 

I have been persecuted for my faith, not because I did anything wrong, by those committed to evil.  Glad to clear it up for you.  And as it now stands, Mr. Zelnick's problems at Take-Two are minuscule [sic] compared to the eternity of punishment that is coming his way unless he repents and accepts Christ as I did 32 years ago this month.  You might do well to read the Gospel of John yourself.  Come to think of it, I'll write Strauss about all this and send you a copy...


Nutty, offensive, and awesome. Jack, you always deliver on the laughs. Kudos.
