LEGO Batman Movie Gets Flack For Being Too LGBT Friendly?

 

If we're talking about a movie you haven't seen yet ... guess what?  There will be spoilers.

"This movie is so gay."  Isn't that music to our ears? If we don't laugh at ourselves, we won't make it through this world. So when an uptight critic says "BEWARE: LEGO Batman Movie Promotes Gay Adoption," well now we need to go see it!

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. - lifesitenews.com

John-Henry Westen, editor of lifesitenews.com, elaborates on his viewing of the LEGO Batman Movie by quoting another reviewer's post about the now must see film. From pjmedia.com, Westen copies:

[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! - pjmedia.com

But I guess his hatred and ability to cut and paste are limited since he didn't continue to cite PJMedia when they talked about Batman and Joker's bromance. 

Batman essentially “breaks up” with Joker early in the story, making Joker cry and setting up Batman as a cold egomaniac. Rehabilitating Batman for relationships is a plot priority. Batman and Joker’s relationship is the flagship. Piecing together a non-nuclear family is close in tow. Eventually, Batman learns a key lesson: Without villains, heroes would be obsolete. Batman’s reunion with Joker is a sunset-lit mock romance scene. Inches from each other’s faces, stars in their eyes, they profess, “I hate you,” “I hate you more,” “I hate you most,”—on and on. Relationship saved. - pjmedia.com

Michael Hamilton from PJMedia also mentions the running dick/penis jokes throughout the movie.  Head over th Hamilton's review to see what that's all about. 

Bromance, two dads, and dick jokes? We're buying our tickets right now.

Hamilton has a good sense of humor about it, more so a little bit of a warning to parents, not a hateful approach like Westen.  We guess John-Henry Westen isn't into the movies we like.  He's cofounder of The Voice of the Family and the following truths are at the heart of Voice of the Family’s work:

  • Marriage, the exclusive, life-long union of one man and one woman, is the foundation of a stable and flourishing society and is the greatest protector of children, born and unborn.
  • The separation of the procreative and unitive ends of the sexual act, which is intrinsic to the use of contraception, has acted as a major catalyst of the culture of death.
  • Parents are the primary educators of their children and the protection of this right is essential for building a new “culture of life”. - voiceofthefamily.com/about

Maybe we will keep an eye on Westen's dedicated HOMOSEXUALITY blog to find out what we should be watching.  Thanks John-Henry!
