I dunno. Seems like a weird time to discuss theater manners.
I know you just lost your child, but I really question you as a parent for bringing him to see Batman. That seems like an inopportune time to drop an aside, don't you?
We're parsing words to the same effect: If he doesn't think kids should be at Batman, then he is essentially saying the kids shouldn't have been there in the first place. He can't take the postion that he is questioning parenting skills and then say oh well I wasn't referring to it this time...Oh, I just dropped that in there as something that sort of irks me.
That makes no sense, especially in the context of the sentence.
No matter what is meant, it's poor taste. It's just my opinion.
Hopefully cincyinco will drop back in and clarify his post.
Looking at the context of the entire post it does appear to be the venting of a person who is fairly close to this event and clearly upset. With that as the case it is very likely he phased things in ways that could be misinterpretted. I did not interpret it the way you have, but only he knows what he meant and like I said, hopefully he will clarify.
