'Beauty and Beast' gay character sparks Christian boycott calls

From Reuters-

An evangelist preacher is calling for a boycott of the upcoming Walt Disney film "Beauty and the Beast" because it features a gay character, saying that the company is trying to promote an LGBT agenda to children.

Franklin Graham, the North Carolina-based son of evangelist preacher Billy Graham and president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, called for the boycott in a Facebook post on Thursday. By Friday the post had been shared more than 88,000 times, and a movie theater in Alabama said it will not screen the film.

"They’re trying to push the LGBT agenda into the hearts and minds of your children - watch out!," Graham wrote.

Graham said Disney was making an attempt to "normalize this (gay) lifestyle."
