One of the glories of a free society is that you can, by and large, believe whatever you want to believe and say, for the most part, whatever you want to say. Occasionally that freedom leads to something as wonderfully entertaining as a man in a Dark Knight cowl preaching Batmanism to the masses. And, oddly enough, making a bit of sense.

Using the amassed Batman comics and movies as his scripture, a bloke known only as Gotham Street Preacher has taken to the streets of Birmingham to try and convert the unfaithful to the Church of Batmanism. Sure, it sounds a bit ludicrous—and he looks even more so—but the root of his message ... well, just give a listen.

"There is no homophobia. There is no racism. There is no sexism. There are no isms other than Batmanism. He sacrificed his only sidekick, Robin, so you could be free." As long as there are pancake breakfasts, I'm in.
