The fathers teach that the Antichrist is going to have an extensive network of Freemasons supporting him and working to bring him forth. 

Which fathers?  In what teachings?

For example:

Hieromartyr Andronik of Perm (+1918)

"It is not a question of the struggle between two administrative regimes, but of a struggle between faith and unbelief, between Christianity and antichristianity. The ancient antichristian plot, which was begun by those who shouted furiously to Pilate about Jesus Christ: 'Crucify Him, crucify Him: His blood be on us and on our children' - continued in various branches and secret societies. In the 16th century it poured into the special secret antichristian order of the Templars, and in the 18th century it became more definite in the Illuminati, the Rosencrucians and, finally, in Freemasonry it merged into a universal Jewish organization. And now, having gathered strength to the point where France is completely in the hands of the Masons, it - Masonry - already openly persecutes Christianity out of life there. In the end Masonry will be poured out into one man of iniquity, the son of destruction - the Antichrist (II Thessalonians 2)."

That's a father, not "the fathers".  Keep going.

To call Andronik of Perm a Father is to call Tsar Nicholas the Passionbearer a Father. What makes them saints is that they suffered for the Faith, not that they uttered or wrote anything generally accepted as Patristic wisdom.

Batman is obviously a "gay" character   

What does the first Batman actor, Adam West, have to say?

Batman and Robin have spent the night sleeping in the same bed together.  Notice the panel says it is "a routine morning".  In other words, Batman sleeps together in the same bed as Dick Grayson on a regular basis.

You should've stuck with defending icons of God the Father.  You were more mainstream then.

First of all, I wasn't ask about Prince being effeminate, I know he was. I was asking how you intend to "prove" all the actors who have played Batman are "effeminate."

Well, Adam West (actually, the first person to play Batman on screen was Lewis Wilson in the 40s movie serials) is certainly entitled to his opinion and the 60s show definitely plays up that campy side of the character, but it isn't the only interpretation. As your very wiki link shows, people who write Batman for the comics (including creators Bob Kane and Bill Finger, as far as I know) aren't exactly unanimous about it.

And? You're the one who's reading homosexuality into that. One could read it that way (or rather, as pedophilia, which would make Kane and Finger pretty incompetent if their intent was to make some kind of positive gay statement), but one could also read it is a more child-like, summer camp situation- Batman as something of a pre-sexual "big kid" who behaves like Dick's emotional peer.

But again, different interpretations- the character is not static. Sleeping in the same bed with Dick has to co-exist with, for example, the comic in which Batman and Catwoman have a love seen on a rooftop that was so steamy it nearly got the issue pulled from stores.

Or with this



Or this

And especially this.

Bruce and Talia Al Ghul is also an example, though the number of stories in which she more or less rapes him makes it difficult to use it as a straightforward one.

Generally, I prefer to look at the character as pretty much sexually sublimated as being the best balance.





But all of this aside, I repeat my question, why can't a gay man be a hero?

I tried, but this is as close as I could find that wouldn't get me banned.

It's finally out, Prince died of a drug overdose.

Chalk another one up to death by pills in the long list of entertainers;

Prince died from an overdose of a powerful painkiller described as 'heroin on steroids'

Prince overdosed on a powerful painkiller that federal health authorities say is a public health threat. One addiction specialist calls it “heroin on steroids.”

The pop star died of a self-administered accidental overdose of fentanyl, according to the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Minnesota. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is between 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
