One Million Moms seeks Mouse House's mass discrimination

by Jeremy Hooper

The American Family Association's "lets boycott anything gay" group, One Million Moms, is now going after the upcoming "Gay Days" at Walt Disney World. Even though the event is not sponsored by the park and there is really no way the company could reasonably shut out all participants even if they wanted to, the One Millions Moms, having positioned themselves as just plain better, more moral, and more entitled to rides on Splash Mountain than all of the rest of us, are seriously seeking an end to the annual event. For the children, of course:

Homosexuals will be celebrating the 23rd anniversary of Gay Day wearing matching Gay Day merchandise, such as T-shirts. There will also be transvestites dressed in drag showing their support for the event. This event is planned with the intent to expose and desensitize children to this lifestyle by same-sex couples holding hands, hugging and kissing. In short, a Gay Day participant's main goal is to be seen versus seeing Disney World.

In past years when we have contacted Disney representatives about this same issue, their response was simply that they do not sponsor this event.

On June 1, unsuspecting families will witness a well-orchestrated event that Disney says they have no control over. Disney has taken no action to stop this, which leaves families stunned and offended. So instead of a normal day at this popular theme park, parents will be angry at the harm this causes families.

Disney has been irresponsible for far too long. Disney representatives and security need to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere and require proper conduct and dress code on a daily basis.

In its subsequent email blast, OMM calls on Disney to "change your policy and protect unsuspecting families and children from being forced as a captive audience to witness future Gay Days at the Magic Kingdom" and to "[p]lease stop this offensive event from occurring in the midst of thousands of children by requiring proper conduct while monitoring inappropriate behavior, public displays of affection and dress code. If patrons cannot restrain themselves, then they should be asked to leave the park." They have not yet required all incoming guests to have opposite-gender coitus before making their way through the turnstile, but there's still time.
