Disney, Beauty and the Beast, and Boycotts
With Disney's increasing support of the gay agenda ("Gay Days" at it's theme parks, increasing exposure of gay scenes in its films aimed at kids) and now with a "gay moment" overshadowing Disney's new live action version of its classic "Beauty and the Beauty" it has some wondering out loud, "Is it Time to Kiss Disney Goodbye."  Sadly, I have to say "yes" as I note in this tweet. And to further note my opposition to Disney's move toward encouraging the gay agenda, I encouraged others to boycott Disney's new Beauty and the Beast film:
Apparently a journalism student in the UK saw my tweets and contacted me about questioning me further on the matter:
Alys: My main questions for you are:
1) Do you agree with the call for a boycott on the film?
I've tweeted out links to the Life Petition site where they host a "sign the boycott" of Disney's latest Beauty and the Beast film, so obviously yes.
2) What are your reasons for agreeing?
(because you think this may be too much for children, because of
your religion, etc)
My main objection is a term some will likely find offensive, but the concept behind the term fits. As a flight instructor, we're taught that flight students should not be allowed to "normalize deviance." In other words, they should not get used to wrong or bad practices. So if you're practicing touch and goes (touching down on the runway, then immediately taking off again), you don't allow the student to think it's normal and okay to land 15 or 20 feet to either side of the runway center line. As a flight instructor, your job is to make sure they don't get used to landing beside the centerline, and you don't allow them think it's an okay practice. You insist they adhere to goal of landing on the center line and as a student to continue to strive to do so until they can.
Likewise as both a Christian and a parent, I don't want the LGBT+ agenda (which as far as Christianity is concerned, is a deviation from the norm that God has created) - to be normalized. In an airplane, allowing such bad practices could have you landing off the runway - with potentially fatal consequences. In this matter, it's a detrimental to both the individual and society, with potentially fatal spiritual consequences. Because once you start down that road, what's to keep you from normalizing more and more things that are further and further from what God intended? Just as we saw when the US Supreme court "legalized" gay marriage in the US, the next thing you saw were some in the LGBT+ community calling for the legalization of polygamy. And it just goes on from there. Once you normalize one deviation, people think the next deviation is not so bad. So when that next deviation comes up - which is even further away from the norm - it doesn't seem so far from the norm because you've already normalized the previous deviation.
Even if you don't accept the argument of "God's intent" it should be painfully obvious biologically what the biological intent is. Biologically, homosexuals, by themselves, cannot reproduce. Whether you consider that part of God's design (as I do) or not you can't - as a rational person - deny that fact. By the way, that biological limitation is in part, why they're going after our children. If they don't recruit, their numbers will fall. So after they normalize the deviation, they want to persuade impressionable kids to join the lifestyle. Jesus had a word for people who lead children astray: Woe! (Matt 18.7)
3) Do you think Disney as a whole
should keep all LGBT+ references out of its films seeing as its main
demographic is young children?
4) Do you think all films/companies as
a whole should keep LGBT+ references out of public media?
5) Are you not concerned about how
this call for a boycott will affect the LGBT+ community as a whole
and how it will make them feel?
Such concern for the feelings of LGBT+ community, are by the way, a bit hypocritical. Many in the LGBT+ community have no problems calling Christians and other opposed to the gay agenda "homophobic, " without regard to their feelings. The term isn't even used correctly - a "phobia" is a fear of something. Those of us opposed to the gay gender do not "fear" gays; we oppose the lifestyle and behavior for many reasons, not just religious, but also for reasons of health, family, and community well being.
So there you have it. I will post a link to Alys' article here once it is available.
