Thank you. Are we living in a woke world? Boy, it's a crazy time right now. Today is going to be a controversial show because I'm going to talk about Disney World and what is going on in this crazy, crazy world we live in right now.
Should corporations be injecting money into the political system that are supposed to be family-friendly organizations like Disney World? There's a lot to talk about. You want to be sure that you're going to listen today to the Christian perspective. I'm Chris Hughes, and I want to welcome you to the show today.
This is just a Chris Hughes-only show, so you know I get fired up when it's me, and it's just me talking about the political environment, the culture, the sin that's going on in our cultural world today. Before I get revved up, I want to thank Mid-American Baptist Theological Seminary for being the host of the Christian perspective studios. I hope that you'll take a look if you have a child, grandchild, somebody in your family thinking about going to college. Check out the college at Mid-America for the undergraduate program. Or, if you want to get a master's degree or seminary degree, visit M-A-B-T-S dot E-D-U.
That's M-A-B-T-S dot E-D-U, which stands for Mid-American Baptist Theological Seminary. You'll go to a school that's not woke. We're going to be talking about Wokeism today. They are not woke at Mid-America in Memphis, Tennessee.
And you will develop a biblical worldview, so you can carry that biblical worldview out into the world, not only in the everyday life, but in the world of public policy, I'm hoping. And of course, I want to thank our main sponsors, the Citizens for America Foundation. You can learn more about Citizens for America at CitizensForAmericaFoundation.com. That is CitizensForAmericaFoundation.com.
Speaking of Citizens for America, I want to take a minute and just promote something. I don't know what you're doing this week, but this Saturday is a huge event that's going to be in Memphis, Tennessee. It's called the Culture Engagement Summit, the largest event of its kind in the country, where Christians across the country are going to gather for some of the biggest speakers in the Christian world and political world today.
People like Mark Meadows, who was the chief of staff to President Trump, Robert Jeffers, who was America's pastor, pastor of First Baptist Church Dallas, Trevor Loudon, a world famous journalist, who is really an excellent expert on the issues of socialism and how socialism and communism are trying to take over our country today. Now, Senator Marsha Blackburn, Senator Rick Scott, Congressman Barry Lowdermilk, former Congressman Steve Stockman, our very own Connie Albers. Connie Albers is my co-host every Friday for Family Fridays. Connie is going to be there talking about her podcast, Equipped to Be, and her book, Parenting Beyond the Rules. Connie is just a great expert on family issues. Scott Klusendorf, y'all have heard of Scott Klusendorf? He's incredible.
He is one of the best apologists on the issue of abortion and the pro-life movement in the country today. Julie Emmons, who is with the Human Coalition, y'all, we're talking about more speakers throughout the show, but that is coming up this Saturday, April 30th. That's this Saturday, April 30th. You're going to want to be sure to register for the Culture Engagement Summit. All you got to do is go to citizensforamericafoundation.com. There will be a button up at the top of the page.

That's my gift to my listeners today only until midnight.
So be sure to go and register today at citizensforamericafoundation.com. Why are we doing this? We're doing this because of all the crazy wokeism and liberal things that are going on in our culture today. I want Christians to understand what the Bible says, and I want them to understand what they believe as Christians and why they believe it. We've got a huge problem in our country today when over 90% of so-called evangelical pastors never address issues like the traditional family, transgenderism. Why aren't you talking about transgenderism and the pulpit pastors? It's on the news every single day. It affects every child in your congregation, and the parents and grandparents of those children because it's being shoved down their throats.
And in a indoctrination manner in public schools today, you need to be addressing that and talking about those issues that are in the culture today. What about abortion pastors? Abortion pastors never preach on abortion.
If they do, they might give it one token sermon a year. Listen, you need to wake up. Do you think God is going to turn the blind out of this? No, he's going to turn his back on America because over 63 million babies have been brutally murdered through abortion in the United States of America since 1973 when Roe v. Wade passed.
We have an epidemic of murdering babies in our country today. I bet you guys never preach about divorce. Divorce is not biblical. It's not God's plan for the traditional family, but more than 50% of people that attend churches in America today are divorced.
It is time to take a stand on the word of God. You need to educate the people in your church. You know how many people in America, according to a recent survey, how many people in America consider themselves faithful church attenders? If you go to church once every three weeks, you're considered a faithful church attender.
That's a joke to me. Husbands, what if your wives only showed up in the house once every three weeks? I don't think she would be very faithful. Do you think God's fighting you faithful if you only show up to church every three weeks?
I think so. It is time for us to wake up and to take a stand on the word of God today. Folks, we have got to do it. We've got to preach these issues. Pastors, it's time for you to quit being spineless. You need to get in the word of God and take a stand on the word of God and you need to be doing it right now because liberalism has infiltrated the church and it's taking over our country.
I can't take what's going on in this world anymore. We live in a woke world and we live in a woke church as Christians when so few pastors ever take a stand on the word of God. The so-called Christians don't read their Bible every day or hardly ever read it at all. They go to churches where pastors never preach the word of God.
How does a so-called Christian know what the word of God says? That's why the Culture Engagement Summit coming up this Saturday on April 30th is so important. We are bringing together some of the best experts in the world to address these issues so you as a Christian can decide for yourself.
You're not listening to what Chris Hughes says or what some speaker says at events. They're going to point you to the word of God and show you what the Bible says on these key issues so you can defend your faith and know what the Bible says when other people bring up abortion and give you this garbage about the health of the woman. Abortion is not a woman's health issue. Abortion is a sin issue. In most cases, that woman has had sex outside of marriage, which is a violation of God's law.
Sexual sin will destroy you. God put things in place for a reason. If you're going to have sex outside of marriage and you're going to get pregnant as a result of that, you shouldn't just be able to run down to the corner drugstore and take a pill that's going to kill that baby because you had sex outside of marriage and didn't do what God called you to do. There are plenty of families that would love to have that little baby, and churches need to step up and start adopting and taking care of those children. But abortion is wrong, and Christians need to understand that it's wrong.
That baby is a living creature created in the image of God. The Bible tells us that he knew us in the womb before we were ever born, and we as a church, as pastors, as Christians need to take a stand that abortion is wrong. And it's important right now. There needs to be an outcry because the Supreme Court, the United States Supreme Court, just this past December heard a crucial case. It's called the Dobbs case where abortion was discussed, and we believe that this might be the first, well, you know, I think there's only been two major cases heard since 1973 since the Roe v. Wade case was passed. And by the way, the Roe v. Wade case is where the Supreme Court decided that a woman had a constitutional right to abortion. I don't know how you read that into the Constitution, and I sure want to guarantee you that the founding fathers, the ones who got together and wrote the Constitution, were not thinking about abortion being a legal constitutional right when they wrote that document. And it looks like, for the first time ever, there's a possibility with those who are sitting on the court right now that that issue might be sent back to the states. And if it is, then abortion will no longer be a federal constitutional right, but it will be able to be determined on a state-by-state basis. And churches need to be ready for this, because if that happens, then your elections for state legislators, state House members, and state Senate members are going to be more important than ever before, and also for district and Supreme Court judges who are holding office in our various states around the nation.
It's an important issue, and the church needs to wake up to that issue. So who's going to be there this Saturday that's going to talk about abortion? Well, you've heard our guest we've had on the show before, Grace Pritchesske. She is a junior in college in New Jersey, and she travels the country and talks about the issue of abortion. That's pretty sad. Now, I'm proud of her, okay?
Don't twist what I'm saying. But when we as pastors and Christians are not taking a stand on this issue, and we have to rely on a college junior young lady to travel across the country and do what we should be doing, we should be ashamed of herself. But Grace is a great speaker. She's a firm Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, and she's committed to defending the lives of unborn babies across the country. She's with an organization called Students for Life, and Grace is going to be there this Saturday in Memphis, Tennessee at the 2022 Culture Engagement Summit, and you can learn more and register. And in fact, I'm giving you a free ticket today to my listeners. If you go to citizensforamericafoundation.com, that's citizensforamericafoundation.com, click on the button for Culture Engagement Summit, and it will take you to the page where you can register and put in AFA as a promo code to get a free ticket this coming Saturday.
So Grace is coming. Julie Emmons is with the Human Coalition. Human Coalition is not an organization a lot of people know about, but they are doing tremendous work across the country. Julie Scott Emmons will be with us and on a panel for us to talk about the abortion issue. And then, of course, my good friend Scott Klusendorf. I don't think there's anybody in the world who does a better job of talking about the importance of saving the lives of unborn babies than Scott Klusendorf, and he does it in a way he does it two ways. One, certainly you need to know what the Bible says, and Scott teaches that and talks about that, but on college campuses across the country today, they say they want to hear the science. And the great thing about Scott is when he explains the issue, he brings the science into it, and he debates scientists and doctors and biologists all over the country, and they do not have an answer.
Scott gets done with them. You want to come, and for no other reason, you hear what Scott Klusendorf has to say. The website again is citizensforamericafoundation.com. That's citizensforamericafoundation.com. Please join us, and we're going to come right back, and we're going to jump into some things going on in the news right now, particularly with Disney World.
I think we're going to be right back. Walk in the footsteps of Jesus and see the Bible come to life.

History was made on today's date. Stay tuned for an American Minute with Bill Federer. Forced to resign from the Army for excessive drinking, he failed as a farmer and a businessman. Not until he volunteered for the Civil War did things change. He was promoted to Brigadier General, captured Fort Henry in Vicksburg, which established Union control of the Mississippi. Lincoln then placed him over the entire Army, and within a year, he forced Lee to surrender. His name, Ulysses S. Grant, who was born this day, April 27, 1822. As the 18th president, Grant stated, On the 100th anniversary of our nation, a grateful acknowledgement should be made to Almighty God for the protection He has vouchsafed to our country. This has been an American Minute with Bill Federer.
For a free transcript, call American Minute at 1-888-USA-WORD. Welcome back to Christian Perspective. I'm Chris Hughes. Talking about a lot of controversial subjects today that are going to probably make a lot of people mad, but that's okay. I don't care if you get mad because I'm mad about what's going on in our society.
And I'll tell you something that's happened this past week. I am fired up at Disney World. Okay, y'all can text message me, email me, complain about what I'm about to say because I know some of you people worship the mouse. That's right.
Some of y'all worship the mouse. You love the place. You want to go to Disney Cruises. You don't want Disney movies.
You want to watch your Disney Plus streaming platform that you're participating in. You want to go to Disneyland and you want to go to Disney World. You know what? I'm just thinking about this.
I'm going to go ahead and step on some toes. The Southern Baptist Convention is holding their annual meeting in Anaheim, California in June. And they are pushing people and encouraging people to go to Disneyland. I want to tell you, Southern Baptists, that if you go to the annual meeting in Anaheim, and I hope you do because Southern Baptist Convention is on the verge of being taken over by a bunch of woke socialists.
There you go. Get mad about that, too. It's terrible what's going on in Southern Baptist Convention right now with people pushing critical race theory and all kinds of other crazy things are going in the Southern Baptist Convention. You need to be there. If you're a member of the Pew, I know the average Southern Baptist doesn't even have a clue what's going on within the convention. But you need to go to Anaheim and try to elect some godly people to the offices of the convention and turn that convention around and stop wokeism and stop critical race theory from entering the Southern Baptist Convention. But anyway, if you're going out there, I want to tell you, you have no business going to Disneyland.
We don't need to be going to Disneyland, Christians. Look at what they're doing. They are shoving a transgender agenda down our throats. Their new CEO has gone off the radical end and is a woke disciple. Disney is committed to supporting transgender issues and LGBTQ issues.
They're not supporting any Christian issues. They're not supporting a traditional family anymore. What's happened to Disney? I remember when I was a kid, we would look forward as a family to watching the Disney show that came on every weekend.
I think it was on Sunday nights, could have been Saturday nights. And the exciting time was Tinkerbell would fly over Cinderella's castle and some great family-oriented program would come on. What's happened to Disney World? Having a same-sex kiss and Buzz Lightyear. Disney, what's going on with Disney?
Who's your woke liberal agenda? Disney always stood for family values and for what was right, for being something exciting for little boys and little girls. And now you just want to brainwash them, Disney, and turn them into a bunch of transgenders and homosexuals and lesbians and all kinds of other stuff, destroying the traditional family, destroying the family that God intended. We live in a woke world and you need to wake up, Chris, because Disney World has gone off the deep end. And what happened this last week?
Baby. The Florida Senate back a couple of months ago and the Education Committee passed a controversial piece of legislation. It was not controversial to me, goodness. Who would have ever fought this nonsense 20, 30 years ago that's going on in our society today? The legislation was aimed at restricting schools in Florida from teaching students about sexual orientation and gender issues.
Good night. Thirty years ago, nobody even knew what a sexual orientation was or gender issues. Crazy. And now you've got teachers across the country that have been teaching this garbage, trying to brainwash four and five-year-olds into thinking that they're not the biological sex that they were born and confuse these kids. Y'all want to, say, follow the science on everything else?
Let me tell you something. The science on this issue is clear. God created them male and female. And you can cut off whatever you want or sew fake stuff on all you want, but if a blood test is done, guess what? No change in the DNA.
You're either male or you're female, period. This is crazy. The legislature even had to pass a bill to say that this nonsense is nonsense. What went on, and it passed the legislature, the governor signed in the bill, and what happened? Disney and their woke selves decided to call it the Don't Say Gay Bill.
It's not called the Don't Say Gay Bill. It's called Parental Rights and Education. And parents, you need to be waking up because there are laws being passed like this all over the country where teachers and administrators in schools and principals are being told that they can't tell parents what's going on.
You're going to tell me that I pay the tax dollars to pay your salary to build your building so you can have your little public school, but then you're going to tell me that my kids are going to be told things at school and then instructed to not tell me, not only kids being instructed to not tell me, but the teachers are being told by law not to tell me what's going on. Folks, do you know that there are, I can't remember the name of them, but there are schools around the country that have these closets, that have clothes for kids to come to. So let's say your little son Johnny goes to school, he's in his second grade, and because he's been brainwashed by his teacher, he's been told that now he's a girl in a boy's body, and don't tell your parents, and you can pretend to be a boy at home, but when you come to school, we've got a whole new outfit for you. Glory, hallelujah, you can dress up and be a girl and come to school once you get here. We'll sneak in this little closet and give you these beautiful little clothes, and you can be a little princess all day long, and then change your clothes and go out and be a boy when you get home.
And don't worry, we won't tell mommy and daddy that you're really a girl hiding in a boy's body. Folks, this is nonsense. Remember this craziness. In the United States of America, we were founded as a Christian nation. Oh, yes, we were. You can think what you want, you can say what you want, but our nation was founded as a Christian nation. And all the legislature and the governor of the state of Florida were doing, we're not going to teach this nonsense at public schools. We're not going to brainwash the kids that are coming to our public schools.
We're going to have little closets where you can go play dress-up all day at school. We're not going to teach you that mommy and daddy are bad people. We're not going to teach a lot of your parents when you go home. And we're certainly not going to let our teachers and our principals, my parents, who pay for their jobs and their tax dollars, and are trusting them by sending their kids to those public schools. This is nonsense, and it's happening all across the country. Also, that bill explicitly states that parents, quote, may bring an action against the school district to obtain a declaratory judgment that a school district procedure or practice violates with this paragraph in seeking injunctive relief.
It also said that a court may award damages and shall award reasonable attorney fees and court calls to a parent who receives a declaratory or injunctive relief against the school. So what was the bill doing in Florida? And again, it recently passed just about a week ago. It passed the legislature in Florida, the Senate and the House. It was signed into law by governor. And all it was doing, it wasn't the don't say gay bill.
I love how we have let them drive the narrative. There's nothing gay or happy. The issue of the word gay was a happy, fun thing.
And what a great PR stunt they have by calling themselves gay. It was called the Parental Rights and Education. It's basically saying that a parent has the right to know what's going on in their kids' school, and they need to be told what's going on because they're the parents. God gave the education of our children over to us as parents, and we need to get engaged and know what's going on in these public schools across the country.
It also, an additional amendment to the bill, would further require schools to disclose whether a child identifies as LGBT to their parents within six weeks of learning whether or not they're straight. What's wrong with that? Why shouldn't parents know what their kids claim to be? If it's such a wonderful thing, why are you ashamed for parents to know?
Because you know it's wrong. A wedge in the family, and you're splitting a family when you shouldn't be splitting them, and you know it's wrong, and that's why you want to hide it. Any time something has to be hidden, it's wrong.
Bring it out in the sunlight. You're talking about wanting to come out of the closet and brag who you are? Well, come out of the closet when you're talking about these kids. You brainwashed them? Tell your parents who they are. You shouldn't have to hide or be ashamed of.
You wouldn't be hiding it. It burns me up. So what happens? That law passes, and Disney gets all worked up. And now what Disney's about to do is they have vowed to have the Florida bill, which is known as what they call the don't-say-gay bill, repealed.
Why does the New World care about this? Has that got anything to do with Mickey Mouse or riding a roller coaster going into the small world? Disney, you need to mind your own business. Your job is entertainment. You're supposed to be making movies.
You're supposed to be giving rides and resorts and theme parks. I sure love Governor Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida. He doesn't take anything off these people. He's had enough of it. So you know what's happening right now? The legislature in Florida is now deciding that they're going to take some of the rides away from Disney, because Disney wants to mess with the state legislature. Disney wants to call out people that are in public office that have been elected to serve the men and women and children of Florida. And they said, you know what?
We're not going to put up with this. Disney right now is celebrating their 50th anniversary. And for 50 years, did you know that Disney was given status 50 years ago as basically an independent government within the state of Florida? Oh, yeah, they got some good lobbyists down there at Disney World. They've got a great job of making themselves independent. They have their own police and fire departments and roads and all that. And they've made themselves an independent government entity. And they've got hundreds of millions of dollars in tax breaks that have not only been given by city and county governments in that area, but by the state as well.
And a huge portion of the state's funds are being used to advertise and promote Disney World to bring tourists to Florida. You know what? All that is about to come to an end. What do you think about it?
I want you to reach out to me. Let me know what you think about what's happening with Disney and why in the world are they getting bogged in stuff that really is none of their business? The governor of Florida did what they were likely to do and represent the godly men and women of the state of Florida and protect the children in the state of Florida. This nonsense has got to end. And yes, I'm tired of it.
Let's take a commercial break. If you want to come back, there's more of what I've got to say.

It's Chris Hughes today. Yeah, I'm fired up. I'm talking about our woke society and all that's going on in society today. If you're just joining us, boy, I am upset about what's happening with Disney World.
Yeah, I am. We need to not be going to Disney World anymore. We don't need to be going to Disneyland. We don't need to go to Disney World or land in China or excuse me, Japan and Paris, France. We need to say no to Disney.
Just say no. Deep in with the liberal woke agenda and the CEO of Disney right now is a liberal nut case who was trying to force his liberal agenda down the throats of America. And it's time for us to quit supporting him with our money.
You want to get his attention? Quit going to Disney movies. Get the board of directors worked up. Stop not to be pushing some liberal agenda. They won't stop because they wanted to make money. And I want to tell you, they're not getting any more of my money.
I'm not going to support somebody who stands against elected officials who are taking a stand here in a public company who's saying, hey, we're going to fight this tooth and nail. We're going to put it into it. Well, if you're just joining the show and you want to know what I'm talking about and what I'm worked up about. Well, recently, the Florida legislature passed a bill. It's called the Parental Rights and Education Bill.
What's so terrible about that? I'm a parent. I tell you, I want to know what my kids are being taught. And even if I don't have a kid in the public school system, a large portion, one of the largest portions of your tax dollars are going to fund public education. You've got a right to know what's going on and what's being taught.
And I think the rules have been put over ours for too long. A lot of things I didn't like about the craziness, the insanity of the COVID-19 nonsense. But one good thing that came about of it is when those crazy people did shut down the schools and kids were sent home. When online learning started and parents started seeing things that kids are being taught and started hearing teachers whispering on the screen, don't let your parents hear or go to a private room. Don't let your parents see. Listen, if you're hiding something, it ain't good. What you hiding?
What you ashamed of? You know that parents don't like the indoctrination that's taking place in public schools today. Folks, I don't know if you've seen the federally funded curriculum called the Common Sexuality Education Curriculum, but it's over $130 million that's in place right now. It really went into place back when President Obama was in office and President Trump did away with it. And yeah, oh, he had some terrible tweets and he was a loudmouth. Hey, he might have been, but guess what? He did away with that nonsense indoctrination that was taking place in the public school system. And when he did, it was gone. But then when he lost, and y'all want to tell you elections do matter. Yeah, y'all missing those tweets right now. I'll tell you what, for the price I've been paying for gas.
Nonsense, nearly $6 a gallon for what I'm having to buy for my truck. I'll take all the tweets in the world, get cheap gas and cheap food and toilet paper, jobs back and people working a job and not having a supply chain issue. And not having the debacle that we had in Afghanistan. And now this nonsense because we're so weak, Russia moved to the Ukraine because we got a whip in the White House.
And now China is pushing us over the Taiwan issue. Y'all, we need to wake up because elections matter. Particularly with this woke mess and indoctrination when Joe Biden got elected, one of the first things he did is call up his buddies at Planned Parenthood and say, hey, help us develop some more liberal, crazy curriculum so we can teach this common sexuality education in school. Y'all, you need to wake up. Do you know that four or five year olds are being told that they might not be the biological gender that they were born and they need to identify themselves as something else? Look, you want to follow the science?
Science tells us that brains are not, human brains aren't fully developed until the mid-twenties. But you expect a four or five year old who thinks they're Superman when they walk out the school door to decide whether they're a man or a woman and that they might need to change what they are and to hide it, by the way, hide it from Mommy and Daddy and don't tell Mommy and Daddy who you are and what you're doing. This is crazy, parents. Pastors, wake up and do some homework and tell your church what's happening. Stand on the Word of God.
This is simple. It is wrong. It's sexual debauchery that's taking place in our schools right now and it's happening all over the country. You should see some of the books that are in elementary school libraries across the country. You got a bunch of transsexuals running around dressing like female princesses and going to public schools and having drag queen story hours. Pastors, aren't you raising a stink? I think it's wrong that some pansies dress as a woman and then reading books that are sexual pornography and that's what they are to indoctrinate your kids. They're trying to teach your kids, they're desensitizing them to this nonsense and trying to teach them it's okay to cross dress and to be a transgender and to be a homosexual.
Find authority for that in the Word of God. Governor Ron DeSantis, the legislature in Florida said we don't want that nonsense happening in our states, particularly happening in secret and teachers unions are paying for a lot of the stuff that's going on. How about you Christian teachers? And I know there's Christian teachers in public schools, but why are you paying the dues in the teachers union?
Why? They are. They're anti-God and it's time for Christian teachers to quit paying dues to these liberal teachers associations. What about all you Christians on school boards across the country? Why don't you take a stand and not pay the dues to your national school board association? You saw what happened in Virginia and in other areas where the national school board association went to the Department of Justice, the Biden administration and the FBI and said to investigate parents who are going to school board meetings.
Really? Investigate parents who have children in school, who have a vested right to know what's being taught to their kids. The same parents, by the way, who pay the salaries of the school board members, the principals, the administrators and facilitators, the staff and teachers in these schools across the country.
Y'all it's wrong. And we've got to take a stand. So that's what they did in Florida. I thank God for Governor Ron DeSantis and the legislature and the state house and the state senate and the state of Florida that passed a bill called the parental rights and education bill.
Well, what did they immediately do? I tell you what, the liberal side, their masters at public relations, and they immediately called this the don't say gay bill. It is not the don't say gay bill. It is what is the letting parents know what's going on in school.
What does it do? It says a school district shall not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity and primary grade levels are in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students. What's wrong with that? It's just saying don't shove six down the throat for five year olds. First grade to be taught. Do you know that by the second grade, they're being taught across the country that mutual masturbation is good because it feels good. Do you know that they're being taught by the fifth grade that anal sex and other kinds of graphic intercourse are okay to do whatever you want? Because it feels good and they're not just being talked about in classrooms, but it is actually being shown graphic pictures of what's being shown.
It is sinful. It is evil and it is wrong of what's going on in our country today and we've got to take a stand and I'm sick about this because Disney World has now said, hey, we want that to be taught. Disney is none of your business. You got theme parks and movies and cruise ships.
Stay in your lane. And they also have said that they're going to incorporate transgender and homosexual and lesbian stuff and queer stuff into everything they're doing in Disney. And they just came out with this big new movie Buzz Lightyear. I mean, what kid or adult doesn't like Buzz Lightyear? But you know what they decided to do?
I have a same sex kiss in the Buzz Lightyear movie. Why is that necessary? I tell you what they're doing. It is an indoctrination. It's teaching children, the next generation of leaders, that it's not abnormal, that it's not aberrant sexual behavior.
But it is aberrant sexual behavior. But if Disney can teach your little kids it's okay for girls to kiss girls and boys to kiss boys and boys to dress up like little girls. Hey, Disney said it.
It's okay. Mickey Mouse wants me to do this. It is wrong and we've got to take a stand against this, y'all.
It's just crazy what's going on. When you look at what's happening with Disney World, I'm just upset about it because Disney has vowed to have this legislation repealed. Again, Disney, it's not your business. Why do you care? The company's public opposition to the new law comes after that.
Remember I told you a while ago, Bob Chepik is his name. He's the CEO of Disney World. Now he's in a little bit of trouble about it, so it's garnered some attention. Do you know the company has already vowed to donate $5 million to organizations that work to protect LGBTQ rights and has begun speaking to employees in town hall meetings about how they can better serve that community? Hey, Disney, how much have you donated? How many millions have you donated to support the rights of Christians who are being squashed across the country today? How many meetings have you had with your employees at Disney World and Disneyland and Disney movies and Disney cruise lines? How many meetings have you had with your employees to talk about how we want to support the rights of Christians? Huh?
Not one. It's crazy what's going on, y'all, and it's just an indoctrination in America today. We need to take a stand on the word of God. And I know some of y'all are going to get mad at me because, oh, you love your Mickey Mouse, and oh, you love to go to Disney World, but I want to tell you it is time for the Church of Jesus Christ to take a stand about what's happening against what's happening in Disney, and the best way to get their attention is in their pocketbook. Beginning of pocketbook, it's time for me to pay some bills. I want to take a quick bow.

What a day. I am fired up because I am mad about what Disney World is doing, particularly the state of Florida. They have dedicated millions of dollars to basically encourage schools, public schools, to push the LGBTQ and transgender rights agenda down the throats of our children and public schools. They want it not only in Florida, but across the country.
We're just joining us. So recently, the Florida legislature and Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law. It's called the Parental Rights and Education Bill. On the news all the time, you hear it called the Don't Say Gay Bill. It's not the Don't Say Gay Bill.
It's the Parental Rights and Education Law. And the text of it says a school district may not encourage classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity and primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students. What's wrong with that? What's wrong with saying that you shouldn't be showing pornographic pictures to a five or six year old or telling seven or eight year old kids that it's OK to mutually masturbate each other?
What's wrong with taking a stand against that? What's wrong with saying it is not proper for you to hide things in school and not tell parents what's going on and instruct their kids to say what's wrong? What's wrong with saying, hey, public schools, I better not catch you having a closet in school so when the little Johnny shows up, once he walks in the school door, Mom and Dad can't see him anymore. You rush him off into the side room and put him on a dress and act like a girl all day long.
And then before he leaves, throw on boys clothes. But we're all going to lie to Mommy and Daddy and not tell them what's going on. And folks, this is happening in school districts all across the country right now. That's why it's so important to support the work of the Citizens for America Foundation.

How about that? That's a great deal. There's some wonderful vendors there as well. There's going to be some great movies showing. The American Family Association is going to show a wonderful movie.
And they're providing a lot of education materials to help Christians understand what they believe and why they believe it. So you're going to want to show up for that. Well, you know, we're talking about a bill in Florida, the parental rights bill. So parents will know what's going on in schools. And just what burns me up, if you've been listening, what makes me so upset is after Governor Ron DeSantis signed the so-called Don't Say Gay bill.
That's not what I call it, by the way. Walt Disney World decided to condemn the legislation and vowed to help repeal it. What's Disney World doing in social issues in the country today? I can understand if Disney World wanted permission to build a bigger park and they wanted to lobby for that or Disney World, you know, wanted to expand whatever they're doing down there. This has nothing to do with anything in a theme park, a cruise ship or their entertainment schedule.
No, they are wanting to inject themselves into the indoctrination of their children. And their CEO has said, Bob Chapek, they're going to start having transgenders and all their movies and their characters and the theme parks and homosexuals. And they've really kicked it off with a bang, so to speak, because they've just released recently a fairly new movie. You know, a movie people have been looking forward to for years. I wanted to go see it, but I'm not now.
Buzz Lightyear, because they have a same sex kiss in the movie. Why is that necessary, folks? You might say, oh, Chris, you're overreacting. What difference does it make? It matters because it's normalizing sexual deviancy. Same sex attraction is not normal. And as a Christian, you should know that.
Transgenderism is not normal. These are sins in the Word of God. Oh, you're Chris, you're just a radical crazy nut. No, I'm a Christian who believes in the Word of God. I'm going to take a stand on the Word of God. And I'm going to say it's wrong if it's wrong. That doesn't mean that I want to take rights away from these people. You know, you have the right to believe what you want to believe or think what you want to think or do what you want to do. And I should have that right, too. But I want to tell you that biblically, it's immoral.
It's aberrant sexual behavior. And Disney World, which has always been a traditional family organization, has just gone off the radical deep end, and they're trying to brainwash our kids. And we just need to take a stand against this. You don't need to be purchasing tickets to Disney World or Disneyland as a Christian. You don't need to be going on Disney Cruise. It is time to get their attention.
You need to cancel your Disney Plus subscription. They need to wake up and realize that Christians across this America, and there's supposedly tens of millions of us, are not going to put up with this. And when we hurt the pocketbook, it's going to get the attention of stockholders, and then they will stop this craziness of what they're doing right now.
Because they just don't need to be messing with the Florida government or the legislature over something that's not in their lane. The company had already vowed to donate five million dollars to organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign. That's a liberal organization that worked to protect LGBTQ rights. Executives have begun, and I'm talking about Disney executives, Disney executives have begun speaking to their employees in town hall-style meetings and talking about how they can better serve the LGBTQ community in the future. And again, my question is, that's fine and dandy, but what kind of meetings have you had to talk about what you're going to better serve straight families? How about the traditional family of one man being married to one woman for life and the fear and admonition of God and their children? Are you having meetings to talk about how you're going to serve them?
Have you had meetings to talk about how you're going to make your Christian guests feel more comfortable? No, they're barreling down to a very small segment of our society while our rights are being trampled upon. And I'm sorry Disney, but I'm not going to support you anymore. Do you know that Pixar is also a part of this company? Pixar employees in particular have been vocal in recent weeks.
They've been ranting and raving and asking Disney to take decisive action at a public stand against the legislation and others. Hey Christian employees, why haven't you been loud? Pastors, are you walking outside protesting Disney? Are you telling your congregation that they don't need to be going to Disney World?
Why not? Are you spineless? Are you a wimp? Are you afraid to stand on the word of God? Are you afraid you might get your name in the newspaper? I'll tell you what, I'd much rather offend man than offend God Almighty. What do I care if a mouse is mad at me? You need to take a stand on the word of God and you need to call sin sin and identify something when it's wrong.
And you need to let your church know about it. The company, you know, they had talked about taking, I was talking earlier about the same sex kiss that's in the Pixar film Lightyear. They had talked about taking that kiss out. But now they're going to have this character that's called Hawthorne, a woman, and another woman in the film kiss each other in the movie and they left it in. When it should have never written in the first place, why don't a bunch of little kids need to see some women in Buzz Lightyear's movie kissing each other? And yet for that matter, I don't think they need to be seeing anybody kissing each other.
What's that got to do with anything? It's making a statement and it's brainwashing our kids and indoctrinating them to accept aberrant sexual behavior. What did they say? In a statement this week Disney said, we are dedicated to standing up for the rights and safety of LGBTQ members of the Disney family as well as the LGBTQ community in Florida and across the country. How about you stand up for my family and don't tell my kids about this perversion? How about you not put this garbage in movies when my kids have to go see it and it's just snuck in there and we think that we're okay. We're going to take our family to see a movie and I've got to watch a bunch of lesbians kissing the transgender and everything else. I'm sick of it.
I don't want to see it happen anymore. And it did make family just come off the deep end. Charlie Corey Disney has come out as a transgender man.
Tell the Los Angeles Times that they can no longer remain silent amidst the public battle over CEO Bob Chiplett's initial lack of opposition to the parental rights and education bill that they call the don't say gay bill. Last week Charlie's father, you know who it is? Charlie's father is Roy Disney, the great nephew of Walt Disney.
Who haven't Walt Disney rolled over his grave. And the family announced that they would match up to $500,000 in donations to the human rights campaign and LGBTQ advocacy group. What did Roy say?
This is Roy Disney, Walt Disney's great nephew. Equality matters deeply to us. I wonder if equality matters to Christians. Does it, Roy?
I don't think so. Especially because our child Charlie is a transgender and a proud member of the LGBT community. How about you teach your kids some biblical values, Roy? How about you take a stand on a traditional family? Charlie announced a $250,000 matching grant to the Human Rights Coalition at the group's annual gala in Los Angeles in March.
And that was doubled to $500,000 this week. You don't need to be supporting Disney. You need to take a stand on the Word Guide. You want to learn more about this and what the Bible says? Join me in Memphis this weekend.
That's right. April 30th on the campus of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary, the Culture Engagement Center. It's going to be the biggest event of its type in the country. You want to join us.
