An occidental gaming look at Christianity

Super Bunnyhop takes a look at the deeper religious elements that are all over Bayonetta. It's an interesting piece on its own, but I was kind of smitten by the notion that a lot of people were uncomfortable with the game's presentation, not just because of the character Bayonetta and how she is portrayed, but because it provides an outside view on Christianity as a whole.

Where the common weeb can get lost in orientalism and present cultural aspects as weird and wacky, here you have a game that does that from a occidentalist point of view with Western culture. It's a nice dose of our own medicine in that respect.
