Joseph Murray, an openly gay Florida attorney, warns that Disney’s LGBT-agenda in the new Beauty and the Beast is robbing the innocence from our children.
LGBT activists praised Disney for the cartoon Stars vs. the Forces of Evil showing the companies first on-screen display of same-sex public affection.
However, Murray did not have the same enthusiasm towards gay couples shown kissing at a boyband concert in the cartoon.
“As a proud member of the LGBT community, I smile when shows I watch — such as NCIS New Orleans and How to Get Away With Murder — include LGBT characters. But I am an adult, and How to Get Away With Murder is light years away from Stars vs. the Forces of Evil,” Murray said in reaction to the misplaced enthusiasm.
With the new Beauty and the Beast reboot displaying the first openly gay Disney character, Murray fears the company pushing its political agenda on children has gone too far.
“The vision for Walt’s world was clear: Entertain children. Disney characters were about hope, optimism and, above all else, making sure children were able to enjoy their innocence for as long as the outside world would permit…
Somewhere along the line, Disney went off course. No longer did it see itself as a defender of children’s innocence. Instead, it saw itself as a conduit to social change. Walt Disney became Harvey Milk [gay rights activist].”
The character in question, Lefou, Gaston’s sidekick, is described by director Bill Condon as “somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston.” And if that doesn’t explain Disney’s agenda, then his next statement did. “By representing same-sex attraction in this short but explicitly gay scene, the studio is sending out a message that this is normal and natural.”
This did not sit well with Murray, who asked “why do we have to expose our kids to such mature themes? Do they not have plenty of time to grow up? Or maybe the point is to make them grow up too soon and that is where I part ways with my community.”
Many have already begun boycotting the film, and some theaters have even refused to show the movie all together. Murray and parents around the country agree that Disney is going too far. By exposing children to these mature themes, Disney is ripping innocence from children, Left and Right.
