In Honor Of Pride Month, Lego Introduces Sodom And Gomorrah Playset
Entertainment · May 21, 2021 ·

BILLUND, DENMARK - Hot on the heels of the company's new "Everyone is Awesome" playset and genderless blocks without male or female connectors, the LEGO group revealed its commemorative Pride Month playset: a new Sodom and Gomorrah set.

The entirely flammable, destructible set includes dozens of pagan minifigs plus a bonus Lot and his wife, who is, of course, a pillar of salt. Children can press a button on the set and the whole thing explodes in flames, and they can even participate in the carnage using the included brimstone launcher.

"Hooray! The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against the unrighteousness of men!" shouted one child in a new commercial for the set as he chucked some Lego brimstone at his village full of screaming minifigs. "Flee, fornicators, for the Lord's anger is kindled against you! If you do not repent, He will whet His sword in vengeance! HAHAHA!"

"We're excited to celebrate LGBTQ history with this iconic scene from the Bible!" said Lego spokesperson Yutte Hermsgervørdenbrøtbørda. "There is fantastic representation in this set, as it includes plenty of Middle Easterners, some angels of the Lord, LOTS of LGBTQ people, and one person of salt."

"You won't find a more inclusive set anywhere!"
