  1. Okay i must say this is a hot topic in my mind. It has to do with the morality of pretty much anyone who is willing to do right to go outside of the law. I think that Batman is completely moral in his actions and is right in his actions. Just because we can take a Bible verse and show how it is used by Paul in that context does not mean that we are wrong in our actions. If you read the ten commandments you do not have a commandment that says thou shalt not fight. It says thou shalt not murder, Batman does not murder. I think that if there are instances where you know what right is and have the knowledge to save someone outside of what the law states i think that it is completely right in doing so. I think saving a life is beyond the law. I have so much more to say on this topic. I do think that it is morally right and correct to save those people.

    Again i would agree that his justice is completely right and is definitely helping those who are in need. Jesus himself stood up for those who could not stand up for themselves and Batman also helped those who could not help themselves. Batman is right and nothing about it is wrong.

  2. Kopy, I couldn’t agree more! This was the point I was trying to make when Matt and I were debating Batman’s legality. We can’t just take one verse out of context, but rather we have to look at morality as a whole.

    Awesome episode, guys! Do some more “trial” episodes like this one — fantastic stuff on all sides of the question.

    • Great idea! Any suggestions for who else we should put on trial?

    I am so happy. Half or a third of my life is complete I was aloud to watch Batman Begins five days ago ( yes I am counting.) Now I really need to see Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. Then I will be able to die knowing I lived. Batman is probably my favorit hero I even like the show that was on in the ’60’s.


  5. I agree with Ben I am sick of reboots. I don’t need anymore origins stories of characters I have already origin stories for. For any other character we have not yet seen an origin story for, bring it on.

    Ben your emotional connection to Batman blinded you to scripture. You need to let Matt speak a bit more.

    I need to find the scripture, but I believe it says somewhere that if the laws of the land go against God’s Law then you can break that law.

    It is not Matt’s responsibility

    Yes Batman a091
