Lego, tool of the Devil!

Really???????????


A Polish priest has warned parents to be on their guard against Lego, warning the plastic blocks are a tool of Satan and can "destroy" children's souls.


In a presentation aimed at parents, Father Slawomir Kostrzewa said the popular Danish toy company had taken a lurch to the dark side with its series of Monster Fighters and Zombie mini-figures, and that they "were about darkness and the world of death".


"Friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters," he explained. "These toys can have a negative effect on children. They can destroy their souls and lead them to the dark side."


Lego's Monster Fighters range features Lord Vampyre, a fanged Dracula-like character, who battles the likes of Doctor Rodney Rathbone and Major Quinton Steele as they try to prevent him from "cloaking the world in darkness".


The priest also cited research by New Zealand's University of Canterbury that found the facial expressions of Lego figures have also become angrier over the years, and that this compounded their evil potential

"Facial expressions may be lead to confusion between good and evil," said Father Kostrzewa. "It appears the good suffer in battle and the 'villains' have a face showing satisfaction with their evil deeds."

But the claims that Lego blocks are becoming the work of the devil was dismissed by at least one expert.

"These are just blocks," retorted Monika Filipowska, a psychologist interviewed by the Super Express newspaper. "Linking them to Satan is just wrong, and all that will happen is that children will be afraid of them now."

Father Kostrzewa's attack on Lego is not the first time he has accused toys of harbouring evil. Hello Kitty and My Little Pony have also come under his scrutiny, with the latter being described as a "carrier of death".

Lego was unavailable for comment.
An Omnipowerful God needed to sacrifice himself to himself (but only for a long weekend) in order to avert his own wrath against his own creations who he made in a manner knowing that they weren't going to live up to his standards.

And you should feel guilty for this. Give me money.

I think it's a bad sign that I cannot tell if this is an April Fool's joke or not.
"When we landed on the moon, that was the point where god should have come up and said 'hello'. Because if you invent some creatures, put them on the blue one and they make it to the grey one, you f**king turn up and say 'well done'."

Yeah, me too.
If we ever travel thousands of light years to a planet inhabited by intelligent life, let's just make patterns in their crops and leave.

Riiiight. And the Bible is all about sunshine, rainbows and puppy dogs.

Maybe he should offer-up "friendlier" toy alternatives, such as the Noah's Ark bathtub play set complete with plastic dead people and animals that can float outside the boat.

^^^The Brick bible has that image in it. I'm jes' sayin'.....

Lego-God drowns everyone

I think the one in the print version of the book is the image at Gen 7:21 but I can't recall for certain - my copy is 70 miles away so I can't check.

"It's hard to, but I'm starting to believe some of you actually believe these things.  That is completely beyond my ability to understand if that is really the case, but things never cease to amaze me."

Me three. POE city.

Like the Onion getting quoted as fact on right-wing websites. "Obama eats actual Christian human baby on White House lawn! Democrats cheer!"
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

Lo, and Jesus said to the gathering around him, "Lego my Eggo"; and a light shown from the heavens, and blessed the gathering with a shower of packets of maple syrup.  And the gathering responded, "Yum, praise be to God."

Thus ends our Lego sermon for today.  :angel:

A perfect example illustrating the difference between the KBV (King Backspace Version) and NASV (Nam American Standard Version)  8)

The NASV is the only True™ version as it uses the ancient philosophy and oral histories of Namology to determine the correct, and only True™ interpretation.

This is old news. There is no Lego in Heaven and for good reason.
