Parents and pastors, this is an alert!
The eagerly anticipated Disney Toy Story spinoff debuting in theaters centers on kid favorite Buzz Lightyear and his new space partner, Alicia, a lovable lesbian who "marries" her queer partner and greets her with a kiss on the lips as they start their gay family.
There's nothing subtle about their expressing overtly gay affection. Disney's LGBTQ activists are simply making good on Disney executive Karey Burke's pledge (caught on video) to produce up to half of the Disney characters reflecting homosexual, transgender and/or "minority" identities.
For background on this development and the new direction of what was once the finest family-friendly entertainment company in the world (now "woke" to the progressive, leftist Democratic agenda), read the article "Ol' Walt Would Probably Vomit at Direction Disney Has Taken" and watch my uncensored video response to Ellen DeGeneres after she mocked and called me out on nationwide TV regarding my commentary exposing the avalanche of gay propaganda in entertainment today.
What Would Jesus Do?
When it comes to protecting the most innocent, impressionable and vulnerable little ones in our midst, Jesus gave the most sobering and emphatic warning of His earthly ministry. He underscored their value alongside His extraordinary love and care for their welfare by supporting the death penalty for anyone daring to corrupt them. He jolted onlookers by laying out the ancient equivalent of the Mafia's concrete boots, ending one's existence with no burial, then being sentenced (with no probation or parole) to the eternal wrath of a Holy God in — in the words of Jesus — "the fires of hell."
Jesus put a child in the midst of the crowd and warned: "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. ... It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched, where 'their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched'" (Mark 9:42-44, MEV).
The progression of evil is threefold: first we accommodate sin, then we accept it, and finally we adopt it. Satan's servants use euphemisms to try and airbrush evil away as they subtly and seductively suggest that the LGBTQ lifestyle is "harmless" and we must not "discriminate" or be "intolerant." They opine that it's best to start indoctrinating children from the earliest days so they can "experiment" with different lifestyles and "explore" different gender identities. It's "harmful to repress sexual desires" because consequences can be catastrophic in terms of "suicide, depression and substance abuse."
Satan, the father of lies, wants to reach children from the earliest age to start planting suggestive thoughts that can lead them on a pathway to ruin. This is where we as parents, grandparents, pastors and counselors must know the truth and communicate it clearly and compassionately as we look out for those most susceptible to demonically inspired LGBTQ activists' web of lies.
Notice that after Jesus spoke about protecting children He immediately affirmed God's created order of a man and a woman; God's design for marriage between a man and a woman (not two women or two men); and God's order for sexual intimacy honored and celebrated only in covenant marriage (not living together unmarried, which is lifestyle fornication).
"But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female.' For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh" (Mark 10:6-7, MEV).
Protecting Our Children
How I am ever grateful to God for the training I received as a child from my parents and pastors that shaped my conscience and saved me from possible sexual abduction and maybe even death!
When I was 10 or 11 years old, I hitchhiked and was picked up by a sexual predator/homosexual posing as a medical intern who tried to lure me to his home. He lied to me and offered me $10 if I would let him learn to do an enema on me (I had no clue) so he'd be ready to pass his exam.
He was a devious, smooth-talking man who could've destroyed my entire life. Thank God I jumped out of the car when the man stopped at a light — to this day I thank God for sparing my life.
Disney, Hollywood, certain teachers and radical progressive Democrats (including gullible Joe Biden) represent a Goliath behemoth, but they are going to fall! What they are attempting to do to our children and young people must be resisted with righteous anger! It's time to rouse ourselves to stop supporting Disney and others trying to steal our children's destiny in God.
Our Mama Bear Mandate
"Let a man meet a bear robbed of her cubs rather than a fool in his folly" (Prov. 17:12, MEV).
There are three types of bears in America: the American black bear, the grizzly (or Kodiak) and the polar bear (found in Alaska). Some can weigh 1,500 pounds and stand 10 feet tall. You can't run away if they pursue you because they can run 35 miles an hour. You can't escape by climbing a tree either, because they'll pursue you with a vengeance and literally tear you apart.
Most bears retreat if they're not disturbed or provoked, but if they're aroused, look out! Two bears tore apart 42 individuals who mocked the prophet Elisha (2 Kings 2:24).
When you must be on high alert is when there's any possibility of encountering an unsuspecting mother bear with her cubs. This is taboo, an unimaginable experience that few survive.
Search YouTube to watch videos of the special effects-driven, six-minute bear attack on Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie The Revenant to grasp the terror of such an experience. I still remember reading an article at Glacier National Park in which a hiker recounted his experience of being attacked after coming upon a mother bear with her cubs, an attack he miraculously survived. It was a prescription for nightmares.
This verse says running into a bear with her cubs is not as precarious as interacting with the fool in his folly. Obviously, most people don't have to be convinced of this, but there are lots of people who dismiss hanging out with fools as not that dangerous.
Granted, most fools are merely knuckleheads, lazy or naïve. Where we must be discerning is with fools influencing the unsuspecting to engage in evil that eventually brings destruction. Walk through the Book of Proverbs and see the carnage fools can bring.
The Bible labels these fools "enemies of the cross of Christ" whose "destination is destruction, their God is their appetite, their glory is in their shame" (Phil. 3:18-19, MEV).
I personally believe the Disney corporation is experiencing the judgment of God for what they're allowing and promoting in terms of perversion. They lost their special status in Florida, which will cost them tens of millions of dollars every year. Their stock plummeted 33% over the previous year and dropped another 22% last month. Scores are canceling their cable offerings and vacations at their theme parks, refusing to spend thousands to support wickedness.
Whether you call initiatives like the above a boycott is your call, but we can no longer sit cowardly on the sidelines and fill their coffers while choosing pleasure over principle as they're destroying the fabric of our families. Withholding finances sends a message, and Disney stockholders are watching.
Here's the Deal: LGBTQ activists at Disney whipped up hysteria and lied when the majority of Floridians agreed to protect children's innocence from gay propaganda through the Parental Rights in Education Act. It's time for concerned and courageous Christians to speak up and stand up for righteousness as they did in Nehemiah's time of restoration.
"Stop being terrified because of them! Remember instead that the Lord is great and awesome. So fight for each other — and for your sons, your daughters, your wife, and your houses" (Neh. 4:14, MEV).
