Christian issues group The Family Research Council has begun retaliating against Star Wars: The Old Republic for its plans to include same-sex relationships.

Speaking on his regular radio show, FRC president Tony Perkins lambasted BioWare's in-game relationships, stating "in a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists."

As reported by Opposing Views, Perkins went on to warn that the same-sex slant will "Star Warp" children.

"The new video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has added a special feature: gay relationships. BioWare, the company that developed the game, said it's launching a same-sex romance component to satisfy some complaints. That surprised a lot of gamers, since BioWare had made it clear in 2009 that 'gay' and 'lesbian' don't exist in the Star Wars universe.

"Since the announcement, homosexuals have been celebrating the news, but parents sure aren't. On the game's website, there are more than 300 pages of comments-a lot of them expressing anger that their kids will be exposed to this Star Warped way of thinking."

Perkins later encourages listeners to log on and speak up against BioWare.

Earlier last year Star Wars: The Old Republic senior community manager Stephen Reid stated the game would eventually incorporate same-sex relationships post-launch.
