Christians are boycotting the Barbie movie because they think it’s demonic and ‘promotes LGBTQIA+ ideas’

Christians are boycotting the Barbie movie because they think it’s demonic and ‘promotes LGBTQIA+ ideas’

Some conservatives have even said the film portrays men as weak and undermines family values.

The new Barbie flick has right-wing Christians and Republicans in a tizzy and many are accusing the film of promoting ‘demonic ideas’.

Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie is all bubbly, pink and fun while also championing women, some conservatives are labeling it problematic.

Many have threatened to boycott the film over its feminist and LGBTQIA+ themes.

One user penned to Twitter: “The Barbie movie promotes the trans and LGBTQ agenda. It also makes men weak and gay. Conservatives must boycott the Barbie movie. Go see Sound of Freedom instead. #BarbieTheMovie #boycottbarbie.”

Some have even said the film portrays men as weak, demanding that children shouldn’t be exposed to it as it undermines family values.

Ivan Tuttle, founder of Ivan Tuttle Ministries International in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, posted to his Facebook page: “WARNING*** DO NOT TAKE YOUR CHILD TO THE NEW BARBIE FILM!

“It is full of demonic influences, and do not be surprised if your child suddenly starts to behave differently! The Lord showed me the Millions of Demons that will be released on your children! Don't take this lightly. ‘They are Coming for Your Children!’”

Christian preacher Kent Christmas has also condemned the movie for being full of ‘transsexual and transgender and homosexuality’.

“I curse in the name of the Lord this new Barbie movie that has been released full of transsexual, and transgender, and homosexuality,” Christmas said.

He added that he would call on God to make a ‘holy judgement’ on the film.

You’d think God has better priorities that weekend, Kent - like seeing Oppenheimer at the IMAX.

While Gerwig and Margot Robbie haven’t directly responded to the backlash, they sat down with ABC before the film's release to discuss its themes.

When asked point blank if Barbie was a feminist movie, Gerwig replied: “It is, but it’s also a humanist film.

"The humanity in so far as you can call it of like, Barbie and Ken, is what’s paramount in the film, and at the beginning of the film, Ken is a person with no status in this world.

“So in this kind of reversed world, that person who has no status is in a completely untenable place long term.”

However, as the movie progresses, Ken emerges as a lead in his own right, not just an accessory for Barbie.

“It’s giving humanity to him, as if it were to a doll,” she added.
