Apple: ‘Want to criticize religion? Write a book’

Apple: ‘Want to criticize religion? Write a book’ — don’t make a game | VentureBeat: "One section of the guidelines resonated with me as a gamer: "We view apps different than books or songs, which we do not curate. If you want to criticize a religion, write a book. If you want to describe sex, write a book or a song, or create a medical app. It can get complicated, but we have decided to not allow certain kinds of content in the App Store." Apple isn’t the only company that “views apps differently than books or songs,” but it is still strange for a company to state it so bluntly. Apparently, Apple doesn’t think games are capable of the same kind of social criticism as books and songs — but why?"

Kind of like "medium as message."
