Has any one here heard of this game?
It was recommended on another forum I visit and you play as a Rabbi in Manhattan. It's a point-and-click type adventure game and is only a $1.29 and has gotten good reviews, but is it a respectful game?
I was raised very religious, my faith waned and I'm an atheist more. My history is in other threads and is not very relevant here unless you would like me to reiterate it.
I have been dating the same man for the past 7 years. We are finally getting married. When we began dating seriously, my parents told me flat out that they would sit shivah for me if I was ever to marry him. Thankfully over the past 7+ years, they have seen how happy he makes me, how well he treats me and what a wonderful match we are. My mother even told me that we're perfect together and though she wishes he was Jewish, she understands that it isn't important to me and it would be wrong to cut me out of their lives when they just want me to be happy. I am lucky that my parents are understanding.
On the other hand, my father is...less happy. He used to push for my partner to convert, saying "if you're both atheists then the religion he doesn't practice won't matter and god will be happy." Let's overlook the absurdity of that argument for now. He has now finally realized that he loves his future son in law and wants me to be happy. So he is "only" going to have a ceremonial shivah for me. His Jewish daughter is dead.
I am torn. On one hand, this means he can see me for who I am and stop trying to bring be back to the faith. On the other hand, this is such a smack in the face. Sitting shivah for someone alive is essentially saying you are dead to them. You did something completely unforgivable and there is no coming back from that.
What would you do in my shoes? Have any of you dealt with this from your religious families?
tl;dr: I'm an atheist marrying another atheist who was Irish Cathoc. My father plans to "ceremoniously" sit shivah for the Jewish daughter he lost.
It sounds like an interesting, mature, story-driven game. But has anyone played it?
