In reaction to the news that Disney already has aired a cartoon showing two men kissing and is featuring a "gay character" in its upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie, Christian leader Franklin Graham said the Disney company is trying to "normalize" the homosexual lifestyle and "push the LGBT agenda into the hearts and minds of your children." He further warned parents to "watch out!" and let Disney know how they feel about its perverse agenda.
In a March 2 post on Facebook, Rev. Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham, said, “Disney has aired a cartoon with same-sex couples kissing. It has also been announced that their new movie ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will feature a gay character in an attempt to normalize this lifestyle."
“They’re trying to push the LGBT agenda into the hearts and minds of your children—watch out!" he said.
"Disney has the right to make their cartoons, it’s a free country," said Graham. "But as Christians we also have the right not to support their company. I hope Christians everywhere will say no to Disney."

Graham continued, "I met Walt Disney when I was a young boy -- he was very gracious to me, my father Billy Graham, and my younger brother when we visited."
"He would be shocked at what has happened to the company that he started," said Franklin Graham. "If you agree, comment below [on Facebook] and share this with others. Let Disney know how you feel."
Franklin Graham, 64, is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the international Christian relief group Samaritan's Purse. He is married and has five children. He regularly preaches in the United States and abroad, and frequently comments on current events.
