Fr Barron - Dark Knight

Father Barron speaks on the doubling rivalry in the new Batman, the problem of violence, and our need for a real Savior rather than a superhero. [h/t: Creative Minority Report]

Dear Ath,

I love this review by Fr Barron, though I wish he would have found a way to weave Girard into the review.

Question: Showing my son this, my son who is a huge Batman fanatic, I am sure he would argue back with examples of the "Hitlers" of the world - the Joker, 2 Face, etc...- and our need to stop them and if not by violence then the world would be theirs for the taking. How do you overcome that argument when on the rebound we find ways of justifiable violence?
