A new, predictable twist to an old tale. I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
If you have daughters like I do, you can’t not know about the upcoming release of Disney’s live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast.”
And like me, you probably groaned at the “big news” that the film will contain Disney’s first-ever openly gay moment.
Now, my first reaction was, “Really? In a kid’s movie?” But of course. That’s the point.
The LGBT movement knows very well that culture has the power to make what used to be unthinkable seem so, well, normal. Gay moments (like Seinfeld’s “not that there is anything wrong with that”) accomplish this.
I fully get those who say they’re not going to let their kids be exposed to yet another attempt to normalize the gay lifestyle.
I’m going to take a different approach. We’re going to watch the movie, but instead of hoping my daughters miss the moment, we’re going to point it out to them and then have a conversation. After all, we’ll be confronting real-life moments soon enough just walking down the street right here in Colorado Springs. We might as well be ready.
