Disney cartoon Star vs. the Forces of Evil featured some couples kissing in the background last week and yes, some of them were same sex! Although Disney has featured a gay relationship before on Good Luck Charlie this was the first kiss they have shown. This actually passed by without much reaction until One Million Moms got hold of it. As much as I hate to add a link to their website, I have so you can go and see some of their other ridiculous campaigns. They don’t want anything on TV or in the media that their children may come across that isn’t Christian friendly. This includes foul language, sexual and LGBTQ references. They are campaigning to get people to sign their pledge to say they will not support Disney unless they produce family-friendly entertainment. This is family friendly, just not for your family!
One Million Moms have said “This is the last place parents would expect their children to be confronted with content regarding sexual orientation. Issues of this nature are being introduced too early and too soon, and it is becoming extremely common and unnecessary.” The biggest thing I take from this is ‘parents’. THEY don’t want their children to see a gay kiss. THEY don’t agree with homosexuality. THEY think it is unnecessary. Children are born without fear, thus without prejudice. It is taught and learned from those around them, be that their parents, grandparents or teachers. They are bringing up their children to be fearful of people different from them, or worse, bullies.
I am an atheist. I frankly find it scary that clever people think there is some man in the sky that is watching over us all yet atrocities are happening every day all over the world. Babies are dying, terrorists are blowing people up, yet God can’t do anything about this? I would never say this to someone who believes in God (although I realise I may be doing now!) as it is their life and their choice. It is none of my business! Just like my family is none of your business. We are not harming our child, she is growing up with so much love around her. She isn’t damaged, and will hopefully grow up to be a well rounded, open minded, welcoming individual.
Please watch this video of a couple who adopted 4 children from foster care. One Million Moms trashed an article about them in the ‘American Girl’ magazine saying it was promoting a sin. They adopted FOUR children and they are still getting this negativity! How about you focus your efforts elsewhere and do some actual good in the community. I am thankful that we live in the UK as unfortunately I can see this situation getting worse in the coming years in the USA.
People need to get with the times, love is love!
