Franklin Graham alerted that Disney has "gone too far" in its submission to LGBT activists after it pronounced its resistance to a parental rights bill in Florida.

Graham, the CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, took to Facebook to entertain the controversy surrounding Disney’s activism against the "Parental Rights in Education" law (House Bill 1557).

The measure mandates schools to notify parents about any healthcare services their child receives on campus. It also discourages educators from discussing topics related to sexual orientation and gender identity with students in kindergarten through third grade. While Disney is based in California, it works at the theme park Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Originally electing to remain neutral on the bill, Disney eventually joined a chorus of LGBT activists and progressive groups in criticizing the measure as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Under pressure from LGBT-identified and allied Disney employees, a company spokesperson thereafter released a statement declaring that HB 1557 “should never have passed and should never have become law,” continuing, “Our goal as a company is for this law to be repealed by the legislature or struck down in the courts.”

In the days following the company’s vow to lobby for the bill’s annulment, video footage received by the Manhattan Institute’s Christopher Rufo revealed Disney employees are talking about their efforts to incorporate LGBT ideology into children’s programming.

This, combined with Disney’s advocacy against HB 1557, resulted in extreme backlash from conservatives and many Christians, including Graham, who began his Facebook post by mentioning Disney’s activism as an example of how “LGBTQ activists are using corporations to force their agenda on the public.”

Further, Graham urged that “companies may want to take another look at what they are allowing to happen.” Public opinion polling completed by the Trafalgar Group found that 70% of Americans are less likely to do business with Disney due to its creation of “content to expose young children to sexual ideas.”

The political action committee Floridians for Economic Advancement requested Florida Democratic primary voters if they thought young students should “be taught about sexual orientation in the classroom by their teachers.” A prevalence of respondents (52%) responded either “definitely no” or “somewhat no” to the question, depicting a contrast between the views of Democratic primary voters and Democrats in the state Legislature, who unanimously voted against HB 1557.

After remarking that “Disney has gone too far,” Graham announced that “The people of Florida have revolted, and it’s going to cost Disney big time.” He particularly noted that “Disney had a special tax status in the state which they benefitted from hugely — but because they came out against the parents of Florida, the governor and legislators have revoked that status.”

“What has happened at Disney is a moral failure,” Graham insisted. “Walt Disney had a vision for wholesome family entertainment. He was committed to the family. The morals of the corporate leadership of Disney today are in the gutter, and they want to redefine family counter to God’s original design and flaunt sin.”
