This is unreal, but an Alabama drive-in's owners have canceled a screening of Beauty and the Beast because it ain't right with God.

Entertainment Weekly reports the Henagar Drive-In posted on Facebook that they were sick of companies that continually force their views on us, and absurdly asserted:

If we can not take our 11-year-old granddaughter and 8-year-old grandson to see a movie we have no business watching it. If I can't sit through a movie with God or Jesus sitting by me then we have no business showing it.

God or Jesus, either one.

These are the people who think liberals live in a bubble?

Here's the post if you feel like goober-trolling:

Meanwhile, Cosmo, which has a lot of great, incisive writing lately, says that director Bill Condon probably goofed by talking about his film's “exclusively gay moment” with LeFou lusting after Gaston — in the words of writer Eliza Thompson, “Disney's first out gay character failed.”

She writes:

... all the chatter seems like nothing but an attempt to add liberal cred to a film without actually doing the work to make it progressive. Beauty and the Beast, a movie that weaves a love story out of forced isolation, could certainly benefit from some updating, but this “exclusively gay moment” doesn’t quite get it done.

Entertainment Weekly gives the film B-.
