Malaysian Islamists warn of LGBT normalisation after ‘Beauty‘ passed despite gay moments

Several Islamist activists were incensed after news broke that Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will be screened in Malaysia with no cuts after all, despite the Film Censorship Board’s (LPF) concern over several “gay moments”. The activists reiterated that the film is part of a process to normalise lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) while desensitising the public, and warned that it may cause children to turn to sexual crimes from the exposure. “This is a normalisation process of something that is abnormal so society will be accustomed to a disease, until they feel that it is not a disease but an identity that must be accepted by society and with pride by its practitioners,” Multiracial Reverted Muslims founder Firdaus Wong Wai Hung said on his Facebook page. “Isn’t it weird that LGBT, which the majority of the world’s religions do not agree with, but is promoted such so society will accept it, but polygamy that is accepted by the majority of world’s religions is opposed completely as if it is a crime?” Most major religions have nothing against polygamy except Catholicism, but it is only legal in 58 out of nearly 200 countries worldwide. In some countries, polygamy is not only illegal, but also criminalised.
