I remember when a number of Christian groups went a little crazy when J.K. Rowlings announced, perhaps foolishly and definitely unnecessarily, that her character Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Wizardry, was queer.
Perhaps a scene such as this was part of what these Christians feared:

Yeah, I can see where that might have scared them. The plots of the later books and movies were odd enough without adding that sort of love triangle sub-plot to the mix. 😉
