Christian Blogger: "LEGO Batman Movie" Promotes Gay Adoption

A Christian blogger is warning people to avoid "LEGO Batman Movie" because it apparently promotes gay adoption:
For example, two men adopting a son together sounds like a dream come true to Richard, the orphan Bruce Wayne adopts without telling him he’s Batman. That’s why, when Richard hesitates to board a bat vehicle without Bruce-Dad’s permission, Batman tells him he and Bruce-Dad share custody of him. Richard doesn’t need Bruce-Dad’s permission; he has Bat-Dad’s!

This solution thrills Richard, who unblinkingly climbs aboard (and later becomes Robin). The bubbly young man is tickled as he spells it out for viewers: Yesterday he didn’t have a dad, and now he has two dads! Viewers may laugh, because they know it’s a farce: Bruce-Dad and Bat-Dad are one. Richard doesn’t learn the truth until the end, when Bat-Dad pulls off his mask to reveal Bruce-Dad’s face and tells Richard to call him “Dads.” Funny, right?
Keep in mind that I haven't seen this movie yet. I wasn't even sure if I was going to see it. But now I really want to see this movie because Richard/Robin has two dads. Sort of, but not really.

I've read several responses who believe that this blogger has completely gone overboard with his analyzing of this film and that most people won't actually associate this film with gay parenting. Especially since there's not actually any gay parenting in the film, just stupid jokes about having two dads.
