Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Sodomites? Daisy Duck and Minnie Mouse lesbians? The proof is in. Disney is now a big time promoter of Sodomy in the Blip.
Disclaimer: We do not agree with all the views of these articles. We have no use for anything that Disney has EVER done. They started out in the days of Walt Disney promoting magic, witch craft and reportedly drugs; and movie stars never have been anything other than ungodly. Job 14:4 Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one. Also, we do not believe that "Christmass" is a "Christian holiday" to begin with. The fact that Disney is promoting Santa (Satan) Clause is only fitting for their infatuation with sexual perversion. Christ never has belonged in "Christmass" and we are glad that Disney is not blaspheming Him in this area any more. Let them have their Babylonish religion. It is most rightfully theirs! Revelation 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. 11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

The Case Against Disney
Twenty-three reasons (and counting) to bepiano coverse of the "Magic Kingdom"
By David Miller
Editor's Note: The Disney Company has the potential to do much good, and it has. Likewise, Disney also has the power to do enormous harm - and it has.
Recently, the Southern Baptist Convention called for a boycott on Disney products and subsidiaries. Because of Disney's 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.
CHILDREN'S 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 Victor Salva, a convicted child molester, to direct its movie Powder. When Salva's victim, Nathan Winters (now 20), publicized the hiring, some of the police officers who investigated the 1987 molestation were incredulous that Salva was working again as a movie director. "It just blows me away," said Officer Gary Primavera. "He has serious signs of being a pedophile." One Disney official, John Dreyer, refused to respond to Winter's demand that Disney fire Salva, saying, "What's the point other than you want to make headlines?" That's compassion for you. blip Times, 10/25/95

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 blip 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 Disney's 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.

Subject: FW: Disney execs in collusion with homosexual rights activists
In a point-by-point public relations strategy called "The Overhauling of Straight America" (Guide Magazine, November, 1987), homosexuals Marshall Kirk and Erastes Pill have explained their plan to alter the public perception of homosexuality. It begins:
'. . . [t]he first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays . . . To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preference the way they register different tastes for ice cream . . .' (p. 7).
". . . This behavior-modification mentality includes opening up a gateway into the private world of straights, through which a Trojan horse might be passed (p. 8)
The Trojan horse or vehicle for the homosexual agenda can be easily identified today as the entertainment industry. David Hathaway's article on Disney mentions the use of comedy to increase the suggestibility of TV viewers to accept and approve of homosexuality. One homosexual actor stated, "The best way to slide these controversial issues under America's doorstep, into their living rooms, is to have them start laughing first. Suddenly they find themselves, if not accepting new ideas, certainly more willing to discuss them."
The laughter routine is even employed today in churches by men who function more as stand-up comedians than pastors, and whose mesmeric techniques appears to effectively neutralize their audiences' thinking processes and discernment of false doctrines. Tragically, many Christians have been prepared for such manipulation by many hours of passive TV viewing rather than hours spent in the active discipline of Bible study. I quote here a portion of New Age Bible Versions, in which the author briefly digresses from the subject of spiritism to the hypnotic effects of television:
TV 'GUIDE': MONDAY 6:30 OR MARK 6:30
"The reader may feel somewhat 'safe' from the Ghostly Guild's hypnotic 'spirits.' However, a review of the neurobiological 'theory of cerebral dissociation' will cause one to pause. It appears that television, with its 'soothing and monotonous . . . sensory stimulus' coupled with 'the fixation of the eyes' and repetitious sound, is a perfect instrument for producing a light hypnosis and thereby 'causing highly increased suggestibility in the subject.'
Brain researchers disclose:
'The brain is composed of innumerable groups of nerve cells, all more or less closely connected with each other by means of nervous links or paths of variable resistance. Excitement of any of these groups, whether by means of impressions received through the sense organs or by the communicated activity of other groups will, if sufficiently intense, occasion the rise into consciousness of an idea. In the normal waking state the resistance of the nervous association paths is fairly low so that the activity is easily communicated from one neural group to another. Thus the main idea which reaches the upper stratum of consciousness is attended by a stream of other subconscious ideas, which have the effect of checking the primary idea preventing its complete dominance. Now the abnormal dominance of one particular system of ideas -- that suggested by the operator -- together with the suppression of all rival systems, is the principle fact to be explained in hypnotism . . .the essential passivity of the subject raises the resistance of the associated path... One neural disposition is thus isolated, so that any idea suggested . . . is free to work itself out in action without being submitted to the checks of the sub-activity of other ideas . . . a comparatively slight raising of resistance in the neural links suffices to secure dominance of the idea suggested by the hypnotizer. (Encyclopedia of Occultism and Parapsychology, p. 453)'
"The sensory stimulus of television's pulsating flash of twenty frames per second, coupled with its unnatural and intense sound level, when experienced by a person who approaches its viewing in the typical passive relaxed state, creates neural suppression of the 'idea checking' pathways. For example, the viewer receives and stores the thought, 'You deserve a break today,' uncoupled with factual thoughts that normally might accompany its storage in the brain. The suggestibility caused by this state commends one to extreme caution given the renegade unregeneracy of most TV ' programming.' (Why do you think they call it 'programming?)" [New Age Bible Versions, Gail Riplinger, pp. 426-27]
Accompanying this article will be another report publicized by the SBC, which exposes the radical departure of Disney Productions from worthwhile family programming to the highly abnormal and even occultic content of its current productions.

Disney execs in collusion with homosexual rights activists
by Ed Vitagliano, AFA Journal news editor
Homosexuality. Violence. Anti-Christian themes. Incest. Graphic sex. Hard drug use. Profanity and obscenity. All these now share a strange legacy with Pinocchio, Snow White, Peter Pan and the Little Mermaid as hallmarks of the Walt Disney Company. This radical departure from traditional Disney values is nowhere more evident than in the company's headlong rush to promote homosexuality as normal and to profit enormously from that promotion.
Disney and the homosexual agenda
When Disney extended company benefits to the same-sex partners of its homosexual employees, it was following a blueprint developed by Hollywood Supports, a powerful workplace advocacy group that wants to influence cultural attitudes concerning homosexuality. Hollywood Supports was founded in 1991 by two Hollywood moguls: Barry Diller, chairman of the Home Shopping Network, and Sid Sheinberg of MCA/Universal. The group managed to influence every major U.S. film studio to offer domestic partner benefits to its employees. The groups written benefit policy has served as a model adopted by other businesses, municipalities and universities. By offering same-sex benefits, companies take the position that homosexual unions are morally equivalent to traditional marriage. The Hollywood Supports/Disney link is clear. Michael Eisner, current Disney chairman, and Joe Roth, chairman of Walt Disney Motion Pictures, serve on the Hollywood Supports Board of Trustees. Former Disney blip Michael Ovitz is also a board member. Hollywood Supports works behind the scenes to shape homosexual-friendly workplace policies. That covert strategy was used to strike a deal with Eisner on the benefits issue. Diller said: I remember discussing domestic partnership with Disney at a meeting where Michael Eisner said, We can't be out in front of an issue like this, but when its over 50% [referring to the percentage of companies that offer such policies], that would be the right frame for the Walt Disney Co. because of the connotation that Disney is in the majority. I said that was fair and reasonable. And when we passed that mark, there was his company saying yes. Entertainment billionaire David Geffen confirms the Disney chairman's sympathy for the gay rights movement, describing Eisner as very homo-friendly.
Mickey's sympathetic ears. Perhaps another reason gay activists have found the Magic Kingdom eager to embrace their cause is the significant number of homosexuals in Disney management. One ex-Disney executive admitted in 1995 that five top creative executives, not to mention a host of underlings, are open homosexuals. These include Donald Deline, president of production, Tom Schumacher, vice president of feature animation, and then vice-president of production Lauren Lloyd. It also appears that a large number of Disney employees throughout the company are homosexual. Elizabeth Birch, homosexual activist and executive director of the Human Rights Campaign, told the Aspen Human Rights Summit II in Colorado that she said to Michael Eisner, 30% of your employees are gay, and he said, You're wrong, Elizabeth. Its 40%. John Dreyer of Disney's Corporate Communications office has officially denied the veracity of Birch's quote, but Robert L.Williams, president of Disney's homosexual employee group, agreed with the estimate.
Disney uses ABC to promote agenda. In the last year the homosexual revolution at Disney has become more public. ABC purchased by Disney in 1996 leads the television networks in the number of prime-time gay characters. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a homosexual media watchdog group, stated in March, 1997, that of the 28 homosexual, bisexual and transgender regular characters on prime-time television 13 were on ABC. NBC came in a distant second place with six. Likely the growing number of homosexuals on ABC programming is no coincidence. ABC insiders told the Wall Street Journal that since the buy-out, Disney's handling of ABC is nothing less than micromanagement of the network. Eisner has assured company shareholders that Disney would make substantial contributions to the success of ABC. And according to Daily Variety, Eisner's contributions would include his personal development of a successful prime-time line-up for ABC. Eisner's plan for the network apparently includes a growing homosexual presence, a point made clear when he attempted to pressure the producer of a top prime-time show to add a gay couple as regulars. The producer and series star refused. However, Eisner found a cohort in Ellen DeGeneres, star of the popular sitcom Ellen. Early in the 1996 fall TV season DeGeneres began to tease the audience that her character on the show might declare herself a lesbian, thus becoming the first TV series to have a homosexual lead character. The storyline, including the final script in which Ellen openly declares her homosexuality, was approved by Eisner. Ellen producers admitted they wanted the show to encourage young people who were confused about their sexual orientation to have the courage to come out just as Ellen did. Executive Producer Dava Savel said, If this episode helps some child in the Midwest with their sexual identification, we've done our job.
Another part of Savels job was reaching middle America with the message that homosexuality is OK. For that task she chose Oprah Winfrey to play Ellen's therapist. I suggested Oprah. Savel said, She's so well liked by the American people, it was perfect to have someone like her who connects with middle America, where if Oprah said it was OK, then it was OK.
The choice of using comedy to introduce prime-time's first homosexual lead also suggests a calculated move on Disney's part. Actor Michael Boatman, who plays homosexual activist Carter Heywood on Spin City, another Disney/ABC sitcom that stars Michael J. Fox, said comedies are perfect vehicles for controversial subjects like homosexuality. Boatman told TV Guide, The best way to slide these controversial issues under Americas doorstep, into their living rooms, is to have them start laughing first. Suddenly they find themselves, if not accepting new ideas, certainly more willing to discuss them.
Dollars and depravity
In normalizing the homosexual lifestyle, Disney has discovered a successful mix of mission and money. Homosexuals form a wealthy and identity-conscious consumer group and Disney knows it. Offering movies, books and TV shows with gay themes guarantees the company a loyal homosexual following. For example, one study showed that gays and lesbians are avid film fans more than three times as likely as the general population to see two movies a month.Disney also exploits their gay connection by welcoming Gay and Lesbian Day at the Magical Kingdom (that Walt Built). Organizers of the annual celebration at Disney World in Orlando, Florida, estimate that the economic impact to the city is $20 million, much of that going into Disney's bank account.
Hyperion Press is another Disney subsidiary which pushes homosexuality. It has published the autobiography of well-known transvestite entertainer RuPaul, as well as the book Growing Up Gay, aimed at the so-called homosexual children of heterosexual parents.
The company is also in the process of producing a series targeting the homosexual jet-set. According to the homosexual magazine New York Native, gays generally travel more and take more vacations than any other demographic group, to the tune of $17 billion a year. And Hyperion aims to make gay travel even easier, creating a series entitled Out & About Gay Travel Guides.
The authors of the guides, David Alport and Billy Kolber-Stuart, already produce an Out & About newsletter, which alerts readers to the sexual temperature of certain gay destinations. According to Blip Today, for example, the description of one Palm Springs gay resort reads: Casual, clean and small, with as frisky a daytime atmosphere as one could find in a legitimate establishment nudity is encouraged and practiced by the management. Sexual temperature: very high. With the winds of change blowing across Americas moral landscape, Disney's marketing strategy has little downside, because middle America even many Christians appear to be sleeping while the homosexual revolution overthrows Judeo-Christian culture.
So, Disney enjoys the best of both marketing worlds. On one hand, the company reaps a bonanza from homosexuals. At the same time, Disney keeps American families feeding at their trough with traditional entertainment products, such as animated films and theme parks.
If middle America continues to support Disney's good products, the company will continue to use that money to subsidize the normalization of homosexuality. While a day at Disney World may not seem like a visit to Sodom and Gomorrah, it might just take us there.

DISNEY EXPOSED - A new book, Disney: The Mouse Betrayed, by Peter and Rochelle Schweizer exposes The Mouse for a rat. Under Michael Eisner since 1984, Disney branched out into entertainment. Its Hollywood Records had The Lifers Group, a rap band made up entirely of convicted felons at a NJ prison. It bought intoViewer's Choice, now a leading purveyor of pornography (11/14 World). The book tells of crimes involving pedophiles at Magic Kingdom. It gives dozens of examples of rottenness.
