“In a first for Disney Channel, a key character on its popular tween series Andi Mack will realize he’s gay and come out to his friends. The story arc will mark the channel’s first depiction of a coming-out journey. The character – 13-year-old Cyrus Goodman, played by 15-year-old Joshua Rush – will begin his self-discovery in this Friday’s second season one-hour premiere episode.”
This announcement was met with a lot of praise and a lot of disbelief.
But when they call themselves a family-friendly network, it is completely contrary to add such controversial and mature subjects.
One Million Moms stated this:
“Controversial topics and lifestyle choices should be left up to the parents to discuss and Disney Junior should not introduce this to young children.”
“Just because an issue may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn’t make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining and providing family-friendly programming instead of pushing an agenda.”
“The Disney Channel is deliberately choosing to ‘move forward’ and promote adult content to children. By choosing to move in the direction of more ‘adult’ stories and content, the Disney Channel – and the entire Disney media empire – may be choosing to sacrifice something far more precious… children’s innocence.”
The average Andi Mack viewer is 10 years old. 10 year olds may very well be confronted with the gay agenda in school or other places, but it being normalized and celebrated on a so-called “family friendly” network is very uncalled for.
Their goal is to support children that are or wish to be LGBT. What they don’t realize is that they are corrupting and destroying these children! It’s not loving to support a lifestyle that, whether they like it or not, is just plain wrong.
It’s all apart of a bigger goal to normalize a different lifestyle. Because no one likes to be told that they are doing something wrong. No one likes to hear that they need to change.
What we cannot forget is that this earth is not our permanent home, and every action we do will be brought before a Holy God at the end of our lives.
Isn’t it more loving to direct them towards the truth that we know? Rather than silently supporting a lie?
I really was excited about this movie. While many of my Christian friends have seen it and said the whole “gay moment” was a big fuss over nothing, it still isn’t cool how it was supposed to be insinuated.
I think the biggest problem is that Disney is not just saying, “Hey, some people choose a different lifestyle.” No, they are saying, “People can do or be whatever they want and you need to get over it or be a hateful, horrible person.”
They are pressuring us to be okay with something that is clearly taught against in the Bible.
For me, I’m not going to choose entertainment like that. I do enjoy a lot of Disney movies, but certainly not ones that press an agenda.
We have reached the end of this long post! Tell me, as a Christian, how do you feel about family-friendly TV networks pushing to normalize the LGBT movement?
Have a wonderful day!
