Disney Boycott

Written by Rev. H.A. Bergsma
The 1997 Southern Baptist Convention has overwhelmingly approved a financial protest against the Disney entertainment and media conglomerate by way of a boycott. Disney has dramatically shifted to an anti-Christian and anti-family direction in its corporate policy and production in recent years. Disney has hired avowed lesbian Lauren Lloyd to develop female and lesbian movies. Disney helped underwrite the 1993 Hollywood benefit for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. Hyperion Press, a Disney-owned subsidiary, has published Growing up Gay, written by three homosexuals to encourage ÒgayÓ young people, and Separate Creation, a book arguing for homosexuals as a third sex or Òseparate creationÓ that should be acknowledged and treated as nominally as heterosexual males and females. Not to mention the films Disney has advanced of late. Focus on the Family has joined the boycott and has announced this on nearly 2,000 radio outlets to an estimated 3-5 million listeners. ÒIt has become clear that the Disney organization has utter disdain for those who hold traditional moral principles and family values,Ó Dr. James Dobson, President of Focus on the Family. ÒYear after year its leaders have insulted this large segment of the population by producing films, television and music that contradict cherished beliefs.Ó (Gleaned from The Outlook)

With Focus on the Family, we would urge each other to take action. Do not purchase any item that bears the Disney name, including items from the Disney stores, movies and videos, as well as tickets to Disney theme parks. Contact Disney, voicing your objections to their policies and informing them in writing of how much you will not spend on their products. Write to: Micheal Eisner, c/o The Walt Disney Company, 500 S. Buena Vista St., Burbank, CA 91521.
