"Recently, the Southern Baptist Convention called for a boycott
on Disney products and subsidiaries. Because of Disneys family-safe
reputation, we asked David Miller, director of the American Family Association
of Tarrant County, Texas, to provide Freedom Club members with a list
of reasons to avoid Disney, according to national AFA research. He gave
us many more than we could print here.
CHILDRENS ANIMATED MOVIES
- In Pocahontas, Disney censored the historical fact that the heroine
in the story converted from paganism to Christianity. Instead, the film
glorified pagan earth-worship.
- Disney signed Martin Scorsese, the director of The Last Temptation
of Christ, Casino, Taxi Driver and many other hard-edged films to a
4-year-contract. Daily Variety, 1/30/96
- Disney hired Kevin Smith to produce two movies: Dogma, which attacks
Christianity by asserting that Christian beliefs are little more than
mythology, and Chasing Amy about a mans pursuit of a lesbian.
Daily Variety, 11/3/95
TELEVISION, CHILDREN AND FAMILY VALUES
- Disney recently bought Capital Cities/ABC for $19 billion. On March
19, ABC aired a Dana Carvey Show program which featured jokes and laughter
about alcohol abuse and cocaine addiction. The same show had Carvey
portray George Washington using cocaine and Ben Franklin in bed with
another man. The same program had a cartoon skit entitled "The
Ambiguously Gay Duo" in which two Superman-style heroes are homosexual
lovers and drive a super car shaped like male genitalia. Finally, a
"Celebrity Bloopers" spoof featured 17 uses of the F-word
(bleeped out, of course; but its intent was clear).
- For the 1995 Christmas season, Disney dropped its 17-year-old "Glory
and Pageantry of Christmas" display (one of Disneys few concessions
to the fact that Christmas is Christian) near Disney World in Orlando,
Florida, and replaced it with "Tropical Santa."
PEOPLE, POLICIES AND THE HOMOSEXUAL AGENDA
- Disney helped underwrite the 1993 Hollywood benefit for the National
Gay and Lesbian Task Force. The Press Enterprise, 12/28/93
- Disney hired avowed lesbian Lauren Lloyd for the specific purpose
of developing female and lesbian movies. OUT magazine, a homosexual
publication, praised Disney: "Like it or not, lesbians are not
yet chic entertainment attractions for a lot of America. With Lloyd
and Disney on our side, though, anything is possible." OUT, 11/94
According to monitoring by American Family Association, Disney has been
one of the top sponsors of pro-homosexual TV programming.
- In the May, 1995, issue of Buzz magazine, contributing editor Steven
Gaines writes, in an article entitled "Disney Comes Out of the
Closet," that Disney has the "largest lesbian and gay employees
organization in the entertainment industry."
- In June, 1996, the company hosted the 6th annual "Gay and Lesbian
Day at Walt Disney World." In a cartoon Disney allowed the homosexual
organizers to portray Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck as homosexual lovers;
and Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck as lesbians.
- Disney has extended company health benefits to live-in partners of
homosexual employees (the policy does not cover unmarried heterosexual
couples who live together). The Orlando Sentinel, 10/7/95; USA Today,
10/19/95; Daily Variety, 10/9/95
- Hyperion Press, a Disney-owned subsidiary, has published "Lettin
It All Hang Out," the autobiography of RuPaul, a well-known "drag
queen" (transvestite) entertainer.
- Hyperion Press also published "Growing Up Gay." Written
by three homosexual comedians, the book is written to encourage "gay"
- According to Harpers magazine (12/95), Hyperion is planning
to publish Daniel Harris book about "gay culture."
