Plus 1 on that.

That being said, they aren't discriminating against anyone so I would support them regardless of my own opinion.

Jason,
I agree that they are not treating anyone differently; they wont show the film to anyone. But the statement certainly is a very public anti-LGBT commentary.
I think we agree.

We saw Beauty and the Beast this this morning and thought it was wonderful. There is nothing offensive in this movie at all.

And Sal, there are new songs, lovely songs.

We're waiting for Netflix as this just doesn't need a theatre. But I don't expect to be offended

Cheers.

Part of being a free nation is just that freedom.

Freedom means that private businesses should be free to choose how to run their business and customers are free to decide if it is a business they want to patronize.

This theater owner can decide not to show any movie he doesn't want to. If he loses out on revenue it would have generated that is his decision and his consequences. If we demand the government force business owners to do or say or provide a product they object to we taking away the very freedom that makes our country great, and we are embarking on a very slippery slope.

Freedom is the freedom to make choices, mistakes, etc, and reap the rewards or consequences of those mistakes.
