A Christian mother and blogger has canceled her plan to take her family to Disney World after news broke out about a gay moment featured in Disney's live action "Beauty and the Beast" film, even though she has already paid $6,000 for the trip.
In a blog entry titled "Disney's LGBT agenda forced me to cancel our Disney World Vacation --- Boycott Disney," Christian mom Brooke Poston explained her decision to scrap their family trip. The blogger, who accused Disney of targeting the youth's innocence, said she refuses to pay for a form of entertainment that clashes with her personal beliefs, Yahoo News details.
"I'm not paying for simple entertainment that doesn't accurately align with my personal beliefs. Disney isn't just aiming their efforts towards parent's of Disney-aged children anymore," said Poston in the entry on her blog named This Modest Mom. "They are pointing a desperate finger at the innocence of our youth. Disney is targeting our youth like they're aiming at big game on a corporate hunting trip. They are banking on corrupting the purity of a child's mind for the 1%."
Poston's daughter is reportedly devastated after she canceled the family vacation to Disney World. However, the Christian mother said the move is necessary and that they need to stand for what they believe in.
Meanwhile, the Christian owner of a drive-in cinema in Alabama decided to cancel the screening of "Beauty and the Beast" after she learned of the inclusion of an openly gay character in the upcoming film. Carol Laney, who owns the Henagar Drive-In, told Premier that it was not a difficult decision for her.
However, Laney revealed that she received several threats after announcing her decision via Facebook to block the "Beauty and the Beast" screening at her drive-in cinema. She also said there were some people who sent them hate mail and some who made "nasty, ugly comments" wishing that Henagar Drive-In would burn down.
Nevertheless, Laney is standing by her decision and her Christian beliefs. Despite the threats and the hate mail, she said she has no regrets in blocking "Beauty and the Beast" from being screened at her cinema and believes that God will bless her business in the long run.
