‘Lego leads children to the dark side’: Priest warns parents toys are the ‘tools of Satan’
It’s a toy that brings hours of enjoyment to millions of children all over the world.
But according to one priest, Lego is the work of the devil.
Parents in Poland have received a stark warning about the dangers of letting their children play with the plastic bricks.
Father Slawomir Kostrzewa has revealed Lego is, in fact, a tool of Satan that can lead children to the dark side and destroy their souls.
Yes, it came as a shock to us too. Who knew the building blocks could be so menacing?
Although we’re somewhat relieved to note that Fr Kostrzewa’s warnings currently only extend to Lego’s series of Monster Fighters and Zombie mini-figures.
He went on to claim the Danish toy company’s figures ‘were about darkness and the world of death’ from which children needed protecting, the Telegraph reports.
In a presentation, Fr Kostrzewa added: ‘Friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters. These toys can have a negative effect on children. They can destroy their souls and lead them to the dark side.’
He also referenced some research undertaken by a New Zealand university which found that Lego figures’ facial expressions had become angrier over the years (sounds like money well-spent) which made them look more evil.
Lego is not the only toy to be criticised by the priest - he has also previously hit out at Hello Kitty and My Little Pony.
Given his preoccupation with the ‘dark side’ one wonders what Fr Kostrzewa makes of Lego’s Star Wars range?
