Anti-LGBT group will make their own cartoons because Disney is overrun by gays

Nick Duffy March 13, 2017

An anti-LGBT evangelical group are raising money to make their own films because Disney has supposedly been overrun by gay people.

The entertainment giant has come under sustained fire from evangelicals in recent weeks after a surprise gay kiss in a Disney TV series, followed by news of a gay character in live-action remake Beauty and the Beast.

The rabidly anti-LGBT American Family Association are taking their Disney boycott to surprising new heights this week, announcing the production of their very own “godly family Film”.

They wrote: “Parents should be warned that Disney has given the green light to a strong LGBTQ agenda in a movie that targets the 5 to 11-year-old demographic market.

“If parents don’t push back today and take a strong stand, Disney will continue to allow more children’s movies to push the homosexual agenda.

“In response to Disney’s efforts to promote the LGBTQ agenda to our children, AFA is proud to announce its commitment to co-produce a new animated film of one of the most impactful stories ever written, The Pilgrim’s Progress. Join with us in a generous contribution to make this Film possible.”

It’s not the AFA’s first foray into filmmaking, and we still have traumatic flashbacks from when we sat down and watched their first godforsaken effort.

Elsewhere in the US a drive-in cinema in Alabama refused to show Beauty and the Beast, while the film has also faced restrictions in Russia and Malaysia.

Emma Watson, who plays Belle in the new film, opened up about the film’s gay character this week.

She said: “I think that what’s so fantastic about Josh’s performance is that it’s so subtle. It’s always like, does he idolise Gaston? Is he in love with Gaston? What’s the relationship there? And I think it’s incredibly subtle, to be perfectly honest.”

She added: “I don’t want people going into this movie thinking that there’s like a huge narrative there.

“There really isn’t. It’s incredibly subtle, and it’s kind of a play on having the audience go, ‘Is it, or is it not?’ I think it’s fun. I love the ambiguity there.”
