Alright, so I almost didn't want to add my voice into here amongst all the nonsense, but you seem like someone who is actually looking for actual advice on what to do, so here's my bit.
Look man, you're 15, And, regardless of their religion, regardless of whether to not you share it to any degree with them, from what I've gathered from your responses, you do seem to still be dependent on them for some basic things in your life right now, which is completely normal and fine because that's the part of your life you're at right now.
ANd whether or not you agree with their way of living out their or your beliefs, or their quirks, and regardless of any of the things that all parents do that frustrate us growing up, they deserve some respect and deference, especially when it comes to what does and doesn't happen in their hiome. Because even though their methods may seem aggressive and over the top (a key logger on your pc is pretty intense), I'm sure that in their mind, they have only good intentions, even if the means don't make a lot of sense in the long run.
Long point short, if they don't want you playing the game, for whatever reason, I think it's best to listen to them. You probably have friends who you can visit and play with, and while its not as good as owning it yourself, in all it's euphoria engine goodness ( a huge selling point for me too), you'll get to experience it still. And in a little bit, your parents may change their minds, and in a longer bit, you'll be old enough to make your own choices. Bt you're not their yet, and it's probably better to deal with some GTA withdrawals, than risk consequences of your parents finding out that you defied and lied to them. It certainly won't help any defense of videos games from you in the future.
So... Yeah. I'd just take the hit and avoid getting caught in the runaround. It's a really exciting game, but it is just a game. Sow your parents that they can trust you to make choices that respect their wishes for you while you are dependent on them, and they will learn to respect and trust you. Hopefully.
