BEWARE: LEGO Batman movie promotes gay adoption

The film's humor gets lost in the pro-homosexuality promotion of 'Bat-Dad' and Bruce-Dad.'

February 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Yesterday, I caught the new LEGO Batman movie and boy did it disappoint!

It was chock full of pro-gay propaganda. Think the sexual innuendo of the Flintstones minus the real humor. It seemed the creators were so anxious to subtly indoctrinate the little ones into the gender ideology that making it humorous came as a distant second thought.

I think Michael Hamilton over at PJ Media had it right when he summarized the movie with “orphan adoption by two dads, homoerotic attraction, and penis jokes.” He writes:

“Gender identity, gender roles, and gender neutrality are all over the story board like so many LEGOs,” he said. “These topics hide in plain sight, because they are the foundation. Few parents and fewer kids will question any of it, because there’s a way to interpret all of it as technically innocent. That’s what makes these messages subliminal (and potentially powerful). LEGO Batman makes them seem plain as vanilla and American as apple pie.”

Hamilton continues:

For example, two men adopting a son together sounds like a dream come true to Richard, the orphan Bruce Wayne adopts without telling him he’s Batman. That’s why, when Richard hesitates to board a bat vehicle without Bruce-Dad’s permission, Batman tells him he and Bruce-Dad share custody of him. Richard doesn’t need Bruce-Dad’s permission; he has Bat-Dads!

This solution thrills Richard, who unblinkingly climbs aboard (and later becomes Robin). The bubbly young man is tickled as he spells it out for viewers: Yesterday, he didn’t have a dad, and now he has two dads! Viewers may laugh, because they know it’s a farce: Bruce-Dad and Bat-Dad are one. Richard doesn’t learn the truth until the end, when Bat-Dad pulls off his mask to reveal Bruce-Dad’s face and tells Richard to call him “Dads.”

Funny, right?
