According to the hate group, American Family Association, “We warned them then and we warn them now.” The them would be Disney. What are the consequences of not heeding AFA’s warning? What power do they think they have? Are they going to neuter Pluto? According to the crackpots at AFA:
Last week, the pro-gay machine inside the Disney Corporation flexed its muscles and yanked all funding from the Boy Scouts until it agrees to fully capitulate and allow gay adults to serve as leaders.
We warned the BSA then and we warn them now…with homosexuals, it’s not enough…it’s never enough. Once the BSA compromised its values, it lost its identity and will suffer the consequences.
Disney is not any better. It gave up its values years ago. From “Gay Days” at Disneyland to its ABC Family television network, Disney is sold out to promoting same-sex twosomes.
I hate to be cynical but Disney has carefully calculated the dollars and “sense” of this decision. They know that being gay friendly is good for business. The surely knew that they would piss off AFA. That’s usually a good thing.
AFA never had much credibility to begin with. Whatever remained has been squandered by their talking blockhead, Bryan Fischer.
Some facts are in order. There is no reason to prevent gay men from being Scout leaders. Openly gay men are less likely to be pedophiles than the group of heterosexual men now leading troops. The FBI will tell you the same thing. Most pedophiles identify as heterosexual. Jerry Sandusky is the perfect example; Married with children.
With respect to gay days at Disney, AFA launched a pathetic and failed boycott some years ago. By this time they should know that gay days are organized by a third party with no ties to Disney. There is not much that Disney could do about it, even if they wanted to. AFA is free to organize a Crackpot Christian Day at Disney.
