The incorporation of homosexuality into a remake of Disney’s 1991 “Beauty and the Beast,” set to premiere on March 17, has spurred one drive-in theater in northeast Alabama to cancel its planned screenings of the film.
In a status update posted to its Facebook page Thursday, the owners of Henagar Drive-In Theatre in DeKalb County made it clear that they were unwilling to compromise their Christian values just to earn a buck.
“If we cannot take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie, we have no business watching it,” they wrote, according to AL.com. “If I can’t sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it.”
“We will continue to show family oriented films so you can feel free to come watch wholesome movies without worrying about sex, nudity, homosexuality and foul language,” they added in the post. The post has since been deleted or made private, but a screenshot is available here:
The Facebook page has since been disabled, presumably because after the story went viral it was bombarded with anti-Christian hatred from the radical left. For every hater, though, there was also a fan, including even Rev. Franklin Graham, who showered the theater with praise in his own Facebook update.
“I wish more businesses would have this kind of character to take a stand for what is right,” he declared in an update posted Saturday.
What specifically concerned both the theater’s owners and other Christians across the nation about the remake was director Bill Condon’s decision to transform one of the film’s key characters, LeFou, into a gay man.
“LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” Condon recently explained to Attitude magazine. “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh (Gad) makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.”
“And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away, but it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie,” he added.
This purposeful mission to taint this longtime classic with the homosexual agenda was what bothered the owners of Henagar Drive-In Theatre, and judging by the support they have been receiving, they were not alone in how they felt.
