Lego is a tool of Satan, warns Polish priest
The Telegraph ^ | 01 Apr 2014 | Matthew Day

Posted on 04/01/2014 4:19:52 PM PDT by MCH

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"Friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters," he explained.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."

According to this Polish priest, toys that include villains rather than "friendly fellows" are tools of Satan. Who knew, LOL?!

Communism / Socialism / Democrat Party are tools of Satan. Plastic toys - not so much.

Toy makers are getting pretty sick to do that.
Sicker would be the family/friends who buy that doll or other "dark side" dolls for their children.

Title is a bit misleading, he didn’t say Lego’s in and of themselves are Evil, just certain kits made by Lego.

Time was, Legos were faceless toy bricks.

Are there Lego priests now? Or just Lego undead (who feel threatened by religious icons)?

My brother did something kinda cool a few years ago. Our favourite childhood toys were Lego and G.I. Joe.

So for Christmas he sent me a big ol' box of Lego and a collectible G.I. Joe.

fwiw, I was in a mall today (a tues. afternoon) and there were approx. 50 kids lined up waiting at the Lego store. The stores have free periods when kids can build with all the products. The kids were sitting in lawn chairs, and except for one squirrel being sacrificed, everything seemed normal.

Step on one in the dark with bare feet, and you’ll be inclined to agree with the priest.

lego has various themes they have done currently, and in the past. some they have had license agreements to do - ie star wars, harry potter, indiana jones, batman,...

their own themes like space, castle, town, ninja’and others they came up with on their own.

they have never done a war theme and say they won’t ever do one.

faces got more detailed when they started doing star wars sets. body colors also changed from yellow to a flesh color and also brown for black figures.

I think not. Visual evidence below indicates that K'nex has also dabbled with demonic imagery per past collaboration with Kiss.

Legos are—just building things—Make them Religious—Have Lego make Monks and Nuns—Nurses and Priests, Bishops and Popes. Kits to build a Chapel or a Monestery—make a Vatican! They make knights—make them Crusaders!

The media will hunt these people to the ends of the earth to present them as mainstream representatives of Christianity, the whole time they are telling us how normal being homosexual is.

The MSM is a distorted lens on the world, indeed.
