Before you start throwing your eggs and shutting me out as a fundamentalist, I said “reconsider.”
I’m not necessarily suggesting that you cancel your Disney+ subscription, burn all of the Minnie Mouse dolls in your house, and cancel the non-refundable deposit you made on the big family vacation this summer… yet. But I am pleading with you not to turn a blind eye to what all is going on down there, over there..? right now.
If you live in a cave but somehow managed to bump a bypassing free-spirited hitch hikers hotspot to download this article and have no clue what I’m talking about, I will give you a brief rundown. You could also go here, here, here, here and or here for more detailed news stories. As for me, I will hit the points that matter for this article.
Florida‘s State legislation passed this bill, the Parental Rights in Education Act, which has been dubbed the “Anti-Groomer Bill” from the right and the “Don’t Say Gay” bill from the left. The bill is actually really short and contains wording that any parent in their right mind should agree with. However, many progressives are acting as if Roe v Wade was just repealed. This “heinous” Act includes horrific language such as:
73 .. The procedures must reinforce the fundamental right of
74 parents to make decisions regarding the upbringing and control
75 of their children by requiring school district personnel to
76 encourage a student to discuss issues relating to his or her
77 well-being with his or her parent or to facilitate discussion of
78 the issue with the parent.
88 ..School district personnel may not discourage or
89 prohibit parental notification of and involvement in critical
90 decisions affecting a student's mental, emotional, or physical
91 health or well-being.
and one more
97 3. Classroom instruction by school personnel or third
98 parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur
99 in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-
100 appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students..
In response to Florida’s Act, Disney faced pressure from the LGBT community to boycott it in many different recommended manners. After what appeared to be an internal tug of war over maintaining their virtue in the LGBT community and losing billions of dollars in an open response, Disney responded in opposition to the bill. A period of time after this, Disney had an internal “all hands” staff meeting where their egregious agenda for the famed theme park and media company was brought to light. Top executives mentioned the goal of having 50% of the characters in their productions moving forward to be LGBT, and how many of the actions that have taken place in the last few years have been intentionally geared towards advancing the progressive LGBT agenda.
First off, can you believe the nerve of Florida? Giving parents the fundamental right to their own children’s well-being? What we are currently seeing on the news across the nation is a country on the back end of Romans 1.
Romans 1:26–1:32 (ESV): For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32 Though they know God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
Our country is not about to be under the judgment of God, that judgment has long since started. The tree is in full bloom and the fruit is so rotten it will make a train take a dirt road. The spirit of Disney has left, much like the image heading this article. Disney, the long time purveyor of American family culture and child entertainment, is now revealed as the Dragon Maleficent that it is. Maybe revealed isn‘t the proper word. How about recognized? Understood? Disney started having “Gay Day” in 1991 that had grown to a week long event bolstering 150,000 attendees by 2010. Pride Mickey ears were released in 2018. The first pride parade was in 2019. Can you imagine the unsuspecting parents walking their five year old to Splash Mountain and seeing a crowd of half nakeds covered in rainbow gear? In 2020 the short film “Out” released about a man and his dog swapping spirits and the dog coming out to the man’s parents for him by accident. I’m sure something happened in 2021 but you get the gist.
Disney is now openly telling you without telling you that they are in fact coming for your children. This is no longer a platitude, a common saying that has been desensitized. This is the real world and it’s happening in front of our eyes. As we see above, it didn‘t sneak up on us ,rather, we have continued to turn a blind eye year after year to the apparently more progressive LGBT agenda of Disney. As parents and consumers in general, we have let Disney’s creativity, innovation, and sheer power overcome us like a thief in the night as if there are no other alternatives. I’m as guilty as the next man but I have to speak up. Something in me is stirring. The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside. Couldn't keep it in, heaven knows I've tried. Don't let them in, don't let them see Be the good girl you always have to.. Dang it! There I go again.
We are now approaching the edge of this cliff and we have to decide if we want to ride the party bus over the edge with Disney and the rest of culture or if we want to tuck and roll off the bus and find a new one that is driving a little slower or ideally in the opposite direction.
I said earlier it’s time to reconsider, not time to destroy all Disney. Some of you may call me weak for not suggesting I burn my daughter’s Minnie Mouse blanket(s) and Elsa castle, the rest may think I’m getting out of hand in even considering these things. Besides, you can’t buy anything from any corporation these days that doesn’t support the LGBT agenda. Right. But we are talking about your children. Purchasing a phone from a company with an openly gay CEO is not in the same galaxy as letting your child watch homosexuality and transgenderism be normalized through the movies and shows that are so appealing to them.
My full boycott doesn’t start yet because I think Disney will walk a lot of this back and try to find a common ground between the progressive agenda and the agenda of conservative middle class Americans that line their pockets more than any other demographic. There is too much money on the line here, and money is the root of all kinds of evils, including cowardice and “giving approval to those who practice them.”
However, the full boycott will only be delayed for another season. This train is bound to the tracks and is headed to Yuma, or Babylon whichever. Until other options become available for conservative, Christian, and conservative Christian families we must move forward with caution and wisdom, testing everything by the Word of God. For now, sit back and enjoy Elsa and Moana with your daughter. There’s a much bigger storm on the horizon, a greater war to be fought.
