and destroys souls, says priest

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, Fr 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".

He said: "Friendly fellows have been replaced by dark monsters.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."

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, from the town of Wolsztyn, also cited research by the University of Canterbury in New Zealand that found the facial expressions of Lego figures had become angrier over the years, and that this compounded their evil potential. "Facial expressions may lead to confusion between good and evil," said Fr Kostrzewa. "It appears the good suffer in battle and the 'villains' have a face showing satisfaction with their evil deeds."

His claims were dismissed by at least one expert. "These are just blocks," said 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."

It is not the first time that Fr Kostrzewa 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. ( Daily Telegraph, London)
