Operation Stand Up, an “evangelical military entertainment” group will be sending care packages to American troops in Iraq which will include the game Left Behind: Eternal Forces.

Besides inciting outrage amongst activist groups shocked at the killing of non-Christians, the game has been criticized by everyone from industry mega-douche Jack Thompson, to game reviewers from the mega-site Gamespot.

The so-called Freedom Packets will also include a Christian Extreme Sports DVD and “More than a Carpenter,” a book double printed in Arabic to set the enemy free. The inclusion of the game is “just one more way OSU Tour can be a conduit in changing a soul forever,” according to the OSU website.

OSU has recently been welcomed into the Pentagon-supported ‘America Supports You’ program, a group dedicated to keeping the loved-ones of troops entertained/distracted by providing an upbeat variety of family entertainment. The distribution of these Freedom Packets are just the beginning, as OSU plans on taking the stage in Iraq with a host of celebrities, musical acts and more.
