Money Making Marketing Machine

I knew the Left Behind series was backed with a power packed, money making marketing machine (and a slice of cheese), but even I didn't suspect that they would commercialize their agenda to this extent . They have come out with the Left Behind Board Game! Below is the game’s description. Do you think it's funny, angering, or a good way to teach children about Christ's coming?
Game description:

Imagine having friends and loved ones all around you suddenly disappear in the blink of an eye. Paralyzed with fear in a state of mass confusion, you struggle desparately to make sense of what's just happened. Then you realize...you've been Left Behind! This exciting board game has two parts. The first is prior to the Rapture and the second is after the Rapture. It is the classic contest between good and evil. Answer questions correctly or even deceive other players with false confessions and earn tokens. These tokens are of great value in the second part of the game (which starts without warning). This is when Carpathia enters the game and causes individual players to band together forming the Tribulation Force. From this moment on, the goal is to work together to defeat Carpathia or face elimination. This unique game can give players a heightened awareness of the "end times." For ages 10 to adult. For 2-6 players.
