childrenResearchers at St. Leo University, a Catholic college with facilities throughout the southern United States, have concluded that violent video games make adolescents violent.

Other violence-inducing stimuli curiously omitted from the study but which we're sure were just overlooked: high-sugar beverages, playing with little plastic green Army toys, rambunctious outdoor games like Cowboys and Indians and Red Rover, Faux News, nursery rhymes that reinforce negative gender stereotypes (that one about "snips and snails and puppy dog tails" is particularly violent), and of course, inadequate parenting.

Wasn't it just a few days ago that researchers at a secular university found no link between games and agression? Agenda much?
