Disney World’s ‘Gay Days’ Slammed By Religious Right Activist Janet Porter
He’s got much of his mischievous side from the original shorts of the 30s, but the art has gone through the anime inspired filter of the great 90s Cartoon Network shows. Most importantly, these new shorts are filled with Easter eggs shows Rudish is just as much of a Disney geek as yours truly. The obscure character cameo in this short is the only one it could be, with Jose Carioca doing the commentary for the match taking place in a recreation of the Maracana with Sugar Loaf in the distance. Jose is a parrot who represented Brazil in two Disney wartime films, Saludos Amigos and the better known Three Caballeros. Excited for the World Cup , I changed my own twitter header photo to feature Jose this afternoon, not knowing he was gonna show up here. The entire short is in Portuguese, which is something the series has done a few times in the past. A Paris set episode was done entirely in French, and an episode set in Venice made extensive use of Italian. The short will be available on WATCHDisneyChannel.com, the WATCH Disney Channel app for smartphones and tablets, Disney.com and iTunes tomorrow.

This is your final warning: ‘Gay Day’ this weekend at Disney World
Families are being warned to consider staying away from the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, especially Saturday, when Orlando’s annual “Gay Days” includes a visit to the Disney theme park by thousands of homosexuals. David Caton of the Florida Family Association tells OneNewsNow that homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people will be in the park for “Gay Day.” “The event is very offensive,” says Caton. “They wear t-shirts that promote the homosexual lifestyle. Some of them are pretty rude and crude.” Disney has allowed the annual event for many years but has pointed out in the past that it does not sponsor it. Caton says the presence of so many homosexuals makes people uncomfortable, especially if they have children, and many families leave when they discover what their children are being exposed to. In a recent story on “Gay Day,” OneNewsNow noted that a homosexual once warned families to stay away due to the vulgarity on display at the Disney park. Caton considers it strange that read more the park is open to homosexuals for the day when it is shut down at night for a Christian concert and another night for high school seniors. Caton was referring to the annual “Night of Joy,” which is September 5 and 6 at Magic Kingdom Park. The event requires a second ticket to attend. Since Disney will not require “Gay Day” to be held after hours, Caton concludes that the park wants “Gay Day” to “impact the social arena,” noting that Disney has stated its goal is to influence children via its theme park. As it had done in the past, Florida Family Association has hired planes to fly in the area with banners alerting people that the park will be crowded with homosexuals.

After it was discovered that PepsiCo gave a combined $1,000,000 to the Human Rights Campaign and PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) to promote the so-called “homosexual lifestyle” in the workplace, the American Family Accociation posted a “Boycott Pepsi Pledge,” urging conservatives to stay away from Pepsi drinks, Frito Lay chips, Quaker Oats, and Gatorade. In June of 2009, Safeway honored Pride by putting large gay/lesbian Pride posters in its stores across America. In response to this celebration of the “gay lifestyle,” the American Family Association urged conservatives to contact their local Safeway, and ask it to “stop promoting homosexuality,” and “let Safeway know if they continue, you will consider grocery shopping with their competitors.” In 2004, Procter and Gamble angered conservatives by opposing an anti-gay rights statute that would exempt gays and lesbians from special civil rights protection in its hometown of Cincinnati. In response, the American Family Association issued a boycott of some of P&G’s most popular products, including Crest Toothpaste, and gathered petition signatures from almost 365,000 families, urging Procter & Gamble to change its policy. In 2011, when Old Navy planned to sell shirts to benefit the anti-suicide, anti-bullying It Gets Better project, the American Family Association urged members to “drop by your Old Navy store in your community and tell them you’re not going to shop at Old Navy until they get their minds right.” In 2011, when The Girl Scouts decided to allow a transgender youth to participate, The American Family Association urged members to contact Girl Scout leadership, “expressing your disappointment in their recent decision to allow boys as troop members,” and to “let them know you will not support the Girl Scouts as long as it continues down a path of destructive policies.” In December 2011, a Macy’s dressing room attendant prevented a transgender woman from using a female dressing room, because it violated her religious beliefs. After the woman was fired for refusing to abide by Macy’s pro-LGBT policies, the American Family Association lamented, “The LGBT agenda has become the theater of the absurd” and urged members to contact the Macy’s headquarters to “express… outrage at this injustice to female employees and customers.” In May 2012, Target announced that 100% of the purchase price of any of its Pride merchandise would be donated to the pro-LGBT Family Equality Council. The American Family Association lamented that “Target is joining President Obama in ramming same-sex marriage down the throats of the American people” and urged members to contact Target Chairman Gregg Steinhafel, to “let him know that a majority of Americans oppose same-sex marriage and are able to use their pocketbooks to voice their opposition to companies that support it.” It should be noted that Target has also come under fire from gay advocates. In 2011, Lady Gaga nixed a deal with Target for an exclusive special edition of her “Born This Way” album after it was revealed that the brand had donated $150,000 to MN Forward, a group that was backing Tom Emmer’s gubernatorial bid in Minnesota. Emmer was known for being especially conservative and not supporting equal rights for LGBT citizens.
