Gay role in Beast: Nothing new here

I haven't yet seen Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast. Life is not long enough to allow us the luxury of chasing down every last rabbit hole, and I know the general outlines of the story and the life lessons it means to impart.

On Christianity

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I know we're supposed to forgive people who have hurt us, but in my case that's just not realistic. Even if I wanted to forgive the people who have hurt me, they'd just laugh at me. And anyway, what difference does it make? Continue reading...
