Evangelicals demand Disney to show ‘curing’ from homosexuality


Anti-LGBT evangelicals launched a boycott of Disney this week after a gay storyline was shown in Andi Mack. Anti-LGBT campaign group One Million Moms laid into Disney for the plotline, urging parents to “sign the Disney Pledge stating you will not support Disney unless they produce family-friendly entertainment”. But evangelical newsmaker Linda Harvey went even further. In a column Harvey cited allegations of sexual misconduct by actor Kevin Spacey, who has been accused of making a sexual advance against an underage boy saying that ALL gay people were actually victim,s of sexual assault and children of America ‘deserve better than this’. And then she accused Disney of lying to kids: Disney is unlikely to explore the reality that many teens would never experience same-sex attractions except for corruption by an abuser. Someone who knew better. Someone who may have broken the law. Predators use a sleazy historical revisionism to claim that, for instance, a boy was already ‘gay’ and chose the child/adult relationship. The Disney Channel is aiding this apologetic for pedophiles. How convenient.” Well, actually, there is no child\adult relationships or, God forbid, peadophilia in ‘Andi Mack’ – Cyrus is attracted to the boy of his age. And suggesting that all gays are victims of abuse is as false as to suggest that all women attracted to men were raped, but Ms Harvey is impossible to convince. She went on to cite incidents of people ‘curing’ their sexuality.
