Should Parents Take Babies to Watch Violent Films? Print E-mail

Active Jackson.jpgThe film Batman glorifies violence and Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tx.) contends that it’s just “good parenting” to take “sleeping babies” to watch these films during a midnight showing at movie theaters.

The Hill reports that, “Jackson Lee also defended some parents fro bringing young children into a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie. The youngest to die was a six-year-old girl, which raised some questions about what parents were doing with children in the theater so late.”

Jackson Lee said, “I understand that. I was young mother with my spouse in an area where we moved away from our family, it’s hard to find babysitters, and so you take a sleeping baby to the movies. There’s no sin to that.”
