Show Me The Ways of Secular Love


Sometimes I imagine Europe as this secular paradise, though I know in many places that's largely untrue. Still, I feel the lack of outrage and indignant tone in this story is unique to overseas media. I'm convinced that if this happened here, any story reporting on it would undoubtedly focus somewhat on the people hurt and offended by what the store did.

What did they do?

Thousands of shoppers unknowingly signed their souls over to a computer-game store after failing to read the terms and conditions on their website.

GameStation added the "immortal soul clause" to online purchases earlier this month stating customers granted them the right to claim their soul.

While all shoppers during the test were given a simple tick box option to opt out, very few did this, which would have also rewarded them with a £5 voucher.

The store claims this shows 88 percent of people do not read the terms and conditions of a website before they make a purchase.

Bosses also say they will not be enforcing their rights and will now email customers nullifying any claim on their soul.
