A lawyer in the American state of Mississippi is objecting to the “gay” content in Disney’s remake of Beauty and the Beast.
Joseph R. Murray, who identifies as homosexual, has written a column in which he states that the Walt Disney Company is straying from its original version of entertaining children and is pushing a political agenda.
“The vision for Walt’s world was clear: Entertain children. Disney characters were about hope, optimism and, above all else, making sure children were able to enjoy their innocence for as long as the outside world would permit. And Disney understood that part of its mission was to provide a buffer for as long as possible,” he wrote.
“Somewhere along the line, Disney went off course,” he continued. “No longer did it see itself as a defender of children’s innocence. Instead, it saw itself as a conduit to social change. Walt Disney became Harvey Milk.”
Murray goes on to say that children should be exposed to adult topics, which seeks to destroy their innocence. “(W)hy do we have to expose our kids to such mature themes? Do they not have plenty of time to grow up?” Murray asked. “Or maybe the point is to make them grow up too soon, and that is where I part ways with my community.”
