Disney – I am done

Disney – I am done

The Walt Disney Company has, for generations, been a wonderful company of imagination, excitement, and has put smiles on the faces of children and adults alike.  From Mickey Mouse cartoons, to their wonderful and elaborate theme parks, Disney has always been a safe place, where the entire family could have some wholesome entertainment.  Personally, I have visited Disney theme parks on a number of occasions, and they all were fantastic vacations that I will remember for a lifetime.

In recent years, Disney has been on a buying spree of sort, like purchasing the ABC television network, acquiring Pixar, and Marvel Entertainment.  The latter of which many people have become quite familiar with through movies like “Iron Man”, “Captain America”, and “The Avengers.”  Simply put, just about anything that Disney has touched in the last decade has turned to gold overnight, which has netted them massive profits at the box office, all the way to merchandising, and of course, hordes of visitors to their theme parks all over the planet.  Things sound like they are firing on all cylinders at Disney and pretty much it would seem that nothing they do can go wrong.

That is until now.

During this month, the much anticipated “Beauty and the Beast” live action movie, was released to theaters nationwide.  However, there was controversy when it was revealed in the days prior to its release, that the director, Bill Condon, who is openly gay, said there would be an, “exclusively gay moment…that LeFou one minute wants to be Gaston, and then next minute kiss him.”  So a film, that was supposed to be a family affair, has now been turned into a platform to normalize homosexuality, and make it seem “OK” to kids.  More about this in a moment.

The next controversy was when “Girl Meets World” TV star, Rowan Blanchard, sat down with an interview with Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards, and essentially called her, Richards, her role model.  That’s right folks, she actually called the CEO of the largest abortion mill in the United States a “role model”.  So Rowan Blanchard, who is looked up to by thousands of teenage girls who watch her show, have heard that it’s o.k. to have an abortion.  One of the most outrageous statements she made was that she is for “equality”.  I guess that only applies to those who actually make it to live birth, but as long as you are in the womb, that’s a different story.

And then there is of course Blanchard’s coming out on Twitter as “queer”.  So on top of her being a supporter of infanticide, she now endorses another sin of homosexuality.  All of this, and she uses her popularity of the show she stars on as a platform to get the word out to the masses of people in her age group, and likely younger, that it’s o.k. to kill your baby and be gay.

Is this the image Disney wants to project now?  If it does, then I am out.

Companies like Disney have literally capitulated to the gay lobby of this country, and they have done it for one reason, and one reason only:  Profit.  Homosexuals make up 3.8% of the population of this country, and yet, they are in overdrive to push on children these horrific ideals like the ones mentioned above.  They are banking on the fact that most people will not research their company, what they support, and who they hire and put two and two together.  They literally are hoping that ignorant and lazy Americans will continue to just line up at Cinderella’s Castle and spend their money making Disney richer, all the while they use that money to promote ungodly principles.

Think about this for a moment.  Disney hired a gay director to direct a film that largely targets young children.  In the process of making the film, the gay director inserts a “gay moment” into the film.  Do you think that done was by accident?  Of course not.  Disney knew that the director was gay and hired him anyway.  They saw nothing wrong with it, and some would argue that due to the box office success of the film money wise, nothing is wrong with it.  Disney saw this entire film before it was released, so they saw the “gay moment” and endorsed it by allowing it to stay in the film versus sending it to the cutting room floor.

Let us also not forget that Disney each year sponsors a “Gay Day” at it’s theme parks, which is nothing short of openly celebrating and inviting depraved, sinful people to come out in the open and flaunt their sinful lifestyle for everyone to see.  One can only imagine that any day now on the Disney Channel, one of their sitcoms will feature a gay character, or one who is seeking an abortion, and everyone just gathers around them for a big old hug and say that “it’s o.k.”

What is very sad is Christians know that Disney promotes ungodly messages, and will literally turn a blind eye and continue to support Disney by buying their products.  Why are they doing this?  The answer is very simple.  They choose to satisfy their flesh instead of taking a stand for what is right.  The Bible is very clear:

1 Thessalonians 5:22 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

22 but keep away from every form of evil.

Thus, as  believers, we should not be supporting a company, or a form of entertainment that we know is at odds with the Bible.  To continue to give Disney future business is to essentially endorse what they are promoting.  Also, what are we filling our spirits with as believers in Yeshua?  We are filling it with things that are anti-Christ.  We are supposed to be like Christ, so how can we do that if we are filling our spirits, through watching movies with themes, images, and the like that are 100% against His Word?  The answer is, we cannot.

We have to separate ourselves from the pleasures and sinful nature of this world.  G-d’s Word says the following:

2 Corinthians 6:17 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

17 Therefore Adonai says,

“‘Go out from their midst;
separate yourselves;
don’t even touch what is unclean.
Then I myself will receive you.

G-d’s Word is very clear here.  If we do not separate ourselves from what is unclean, and in this modern era that includes forms of entertainment that run counter to the Bible, He will not receive us.  As for myself, as much as a fan I have been to comic book heroes, Mickey Mouse, and the like, my relationship with Yeshua takes precedence over all things.  Therefore, I cannot in good conscious support the Disney company with my money, and my time, when I know it literally has turned into a morass of unholiness, and devoid of any true goodwill.

Companies like Disney have essentially sent the message that believers opinions and points of view do not matter anymore.  They do not care that you object to portraying homosexuality and abortion as being o.k., because again, they are banking that you will turn a blind eye, and continue to patronize them with your business.  Why not take a stand, like many did in the Target trans-gendered bathroom situation, and boycott Disney altogether?  It has had a significant impact on their sales, despite Target’s PR campaign to try and mitigate these facts, so there is every reason to believe that if the entire community of believers in America would boycott Disney, they would take notice and perhaps change their policies.

In conclusion, the following statement will upset some, but you know what, you cannot please everyone.  That statement is, if you as a believer continue to give your dollars to Disney, knowing full well they are leading a campaign to indoctrinate kids and adults alike into accepting sinful behavior, then you need to check your heart with Yeshua right now, because something is seriously wrong in your spiritual life.  I pray that if this is speaking to you, that Yeshua will clear the confusion, because our G-d is not a G-d of confusion.

 

Shalom
