I am friends with a lot of Christians who attend mainline churches. Sometimes, the topic of Disney comes up. I try to talk to them about Disney’s actions on politics and social issues. But they don’t listen. For them, the fiction that Disney makes to entertain them is more important than the “culture war”. They know very much more about Disney fictions than they do about Disney facts.
Let’s see some Disney facts from this story in Daily Wire: (H/T Laura)
A Florida sheriff said that his department “always” caught Disney employees during undercover operations, while revealing the results of a week-long investigation into human trafficking.
The large investigation, known as “Fall Haul 2,” was spearheaded by the Polk County Police Department and involved a week-long sting operation in central Florida that netted over 150 arrests.
“Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and arrest those who are fueling the exploitation of human beings (Johns) and those profiting from the exploitation of human beings. Prostitution is not a victimless crime – it results in exploitation, disease, dysfunction, drug and alcohol addiction, violence, and broken families,” Sheriff Grady Judd said in a statement.
People from Florida, Georgia, Michigan, New York, California, North Carolina, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Arizona were all arrested during the undercover operation. Notable arrests included a Disney bellhop, a Georgia police deputy chief, and a high school physical education teacher.
The Disney employee, 57-year-old Guillermo Perez, was arrested for soliciting a prostitute. Perez is a bellhop for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. While showing Perez’s photo while at the press conference, Judd suggested he was not surprised to have arrested a Disney employee.
“Now, where would we be with an undercover operation and no Disney employees?” he said. “Oh yes, we always have Disney employees.”
Also arrested was an independent photographer who the sheriff’s department said is occasionally “contracted by Disney.”
Now, you might be thinking “well, that’s just Disney employees. The company itself doesn’t take a stand on pedophilia or gr00ming children, does it?”
Here’s a report from Life News.
Walt Disney World, a company founded to bring joy and entertainment to children, told employees Friday that it will pay their travel expenses to have their unborn babies aborted.
The news came after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in a historic ruling Friday morning. The Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health decision means states may protect unborn babies by banning abortions again,.
The Orange County Register reports Walt Disney World announced the new employee “benefit” in direct response to the high court ruling.
The company, which employs about 80,000 people in Florida, described the killing of unborn babies in abortions as “quality healthcare” and told Reuters that it is “committed” to ensuring its employees have access to abortions, according to the report.
A new Florida law that bans abortions after 15 weeks is scheduled to go into effect July 1. Though not a total abortion ban, pro-life advocates believe the law will save thousands of unborn babies from mid- and late-term abortions every year.
The facts of that article were also picked up in other places, like the New York Post, but I prefer to link to Life News.
Here’s an article by The Federalist, talking about the Disney employee who does the voice of the main character in a recent Disney movie:
In response to the criticisms of the bigots who complain about the presence of a same-sex kiss in a film for children, Evans, the voice of this version of Buzz Lightyear, spoke bluntly in a recent interview with Reuters Television, insisting that those who oppose LGBTQIA characters in children’s films are not worthy of your concern. Their complaints will perish with them. Their bigotry will be swept into the dustbin of history. You simply need to wait for them to enter extinction.
I try not to buy anything from Disney and related companies like ESPN, because I don’t want to give money to people who war against my Christian worldview and values. But it seems like in the church, people know more about Star Wars and Disney than they know about the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus. It’s astonishing, but it’s true. There’s all this emphasis on fun activities and worship songs, but no one can give a defense of the most basic Christian truth claims. Community is more important to them than knowing truth and showing their work to discover truth to others who still believe lies. “Don’t Judge!” is the new religion of the woke elites. Star Wars is their Bible. And Disneyland is their Mecca.
