Disney Continues To Act As A Social Change Agent

Friday, March 31, 2017

Pastor's Note: The refusal to renounce and separate from a wicked culture is evidence that a generational church is both cowardly and corrupt. Though every church is not apostate, it is apparent that every church has to contend with apostasy and apathy from without and within. One of those obvious indicators is that many who are attend church are "lovers of pleasure more than lovers of GOD." To love a world (which includes a secular entertainment industry) that despises and demeans our faith is a betrayal of our loyalty to the LORD.

Disney continues to act as a major social change agent by its attempt to normalize and glorify homosexuality. Its new remake of Beauty and the Beast features a homosexual relationship. Movie director Bill Condon says, "LeFou [a companion of Gaston] is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston [a muscular hunter who wants to marry Belle, the 'beauty'] and on another day wants to kiss Gaston. He's confused about what he wants. It's somebody who's just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. ... at the end ... it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie" ("Beauty and the Beast Remake," Christian Headlines, Mar. 2, 2017). Fallen human nature has many "feelings" that are powerful and "natural" but unlawful before God, but modern society denies God and seeks to legitimize all human feelings through a relativistic morality.

Few men have had more influence on American society and the modern global culture than Walt Disney. He pioneered the American animation industry and captivated children's hearts with cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. He took Hollywood fantasy to a new level of influence with the building of Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida. Disney's animated classics are filled with pagan and occultic imagery such as witches and demons, sorcerers and spells, genies and goblins, which is strongly denounced by Scripture. Like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, Disney cartoons present the false and damnable concept that there is good and bad magic. Disney did not attend church, and there are no churches on Main Street in Disneyland or Disney World, even though there were churches on practically every main street in America when Disneyland opened in 1955.

Multitudes of Christian parents have unwisely allowed Disney's cartoons and movies to influence their children. When Disneyland opened, Time magazine featured Walt Disney on its cover and called him "the poet of the new American humanism." Indeed. The acceptance of Hollywood's "entertainment" by American churches over the past half century helped paved the way for the wholesale apostasy that we witness today and the destruction of morality in society at large.
