Mickey Mouse Pride ears
Beware! These ears are very dangerous when used as directed.

The latest device, certain to convert Christian children from straight to gay, is Mickey Mouse Pride ears. Apparently, just donning the Pride ears for more than 1.5 minutes is sufficient to turn any kid into Richard Simmons (according to peer-reviewed research). Who knew? Well, it all makes perfect sense to Joseph Sciambra who claims that he can turn gay people straight. Thus straight-to-gay must also be possible.

Sciambra writes: Disney unveils rainbow Mickey Mouse ears to celebrate homosexuality. In case you are unaware, Mr. Sciambra is a piece of work.

Brian Tashman once referred to Sciambra as the “ex-Nazi-witch-Satanist-porn-star who authored the salacious memoir ‘Swallowed by Satan.’” Yes, he is, and has been, all of those things; and more. Sciambra also writes a blog subtitled: “How Our Lord Jesus Christ Saved Me From Homosexuality, Pornography, and the Occult.”

Jospeph Scaimbra
“Ex-gay” douche-bag, Jospeph Sciambra, selling his schlock.
Jesus is appalled.

Jesus doesn’t seem to have saved Sciambra from having a mediocre intellect. It’s not just Mickey that’s a problem:

Primarily through children’s television programming, Disney has engaged in a concerted effort to normalize homosexuality.

In a sense, Sciambra is correct. Disney is providing content with gay characters who are perfectly normal people. This serves to reduce discrimination. What Sciambra is hinting at is the idea that, if homosexuality is perceived as normal, more people (in this case children) will choose to be gay. The notion that we “recruit” children never dies. It is just hinted at in less acerbic terms.

Sciambra will never come to terms with the science. It is an established fact that sexual orientation is a continuum and that all points on the curve are normal variants of human sexuality.

Disney, it seems, has been rather busy at aiding recruitment efforts.

Airing for five seasons from 2013 to 2018, The Fosters was an American family drama television series that appeared on the ABC Family network. … In the second season, the storyline <sic> crossed over from an exploration of adult homosexuality into childhood same-sex attraction as Jude, the youngest son in the family, who is played by Hayden Byerly, 14, kisses Connor, the school friend who stood up for Jude when he was bullied, who is played by 15-year-old Gavin MacIntosh.

Yes Mr. Sciambra. Gay children do exist. Teens have classmates who are gay.

In 2014, the Disney Channel’s hit show Good Luck Charlie introduced two new characters: a lesbian couple. …

Oh my!

In 2015, the Walt Disney Company joined 379 other corporations urging the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down all state bans on same-sex marriage.

Indeed. Corporate America loathes discrimination. It’s bad for business.

In 2016, the Disney Channel cartoon Gravity Falls featured the characters Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland as a male same-sex couple. The show’s creator, Alex Hirsch, had this to say about his conversations with the censors at Disney:

They basically admitted that there was no good reason why I should change it, but that they get complaints about this stuff from various homophobic parents and would rather avoid the headache, and couldn’t I just drop it? … I said that if we did that we were basically just being held hostage by bigots and screw that, lets rise above this crap and just pull the trigger. The worst thing that can happen is that we get some letters. Who cares?

Yup. Who cares about some religious zealots and their agenda? Don’t like being referred to as a bigot? There is a solution for that.

Disney is pernicious in other ways as well:

A number of Disney child stars met untimely deaths and experienced tragedy as adults. The most disturbing, albeit largely forgotten, example is Bobby Driscoll, the first bona fide live Disney star, who was featured in Song of the South and Treasure Island. In 1968, Driscoll met a sad end as a transient mentally disturbed drug addict in New York City, dying at the age of 31 and buried in an unmarked grave as an unidentified person. He once said of his time at Disney: “[D]ropped like garbage when I was no longer a cute little kid and I didn’t appeal to [Walt] anymore.”

The story of Bobby Driscoll is more complicated. He became addicted to heroine at 17. That alleged quote cannot be verified. It comes from a book titled Hollywood Babylon Strikes Again. The same book also alleges that Charlton Heston had an affair with young Marlon Brando and had sex with Brando’s children, Christian and Cheyenne. It also claims that numerous celebrities were gay prostitutes. Take it with a grain of salt. It is also irrelevant.

Come to think of it, Joseph Sciambra is irrelevant, or at least he should be. However, he says things that conservative Catholics want to hear: Gays are evil perverts who prey on young children and homosexuality is a choice which can be influenced if homosexuality is “normalized.” It doesn’t have to make any sense at all to be embraced. None of this makes a whit of sense.
