Disney elevates homosexual to studio chiefAllie Martin - OneNewsNow - 10/13/2009 5:00:00 AM
A pro-family activist says he's not surprised that the Walt Disney Company has named an open homosexual as studio head.
Disney announced last week it had named Rich Ross as studio chief. The 47-year-old television executive helped to revive the Disney Channel, and now will oversee all production, distribution, and marketing for the company's live-action and animated feature labels. It is the first time an open homosexual has been named to such a position.
Peter LaBarbera is president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality. He says although a boycott of the entertainment giant (initiated by the American Family Association) was called off several years ago, the company is still very homosexual-friendly.
"The sad reality is that whenever you see a homosexual activist at the top, nine times out of ten they end up pushing that gay agenda using their influence to push it wherever they can," states LaBarbera.
"It's the way the homosexual movement ends up influencing the country far beyond its tiny numbers," he explains. "They get in key positions of power, and then they use that power to advance their agenda."
LaBarbera says it is time for parents to get educated and to move away from Disney to family-friendly entertainment companies.
