Problems with Movies:
FACT: Disney hired Victor Salva, a convicted child molester, to direct its movie "Powder." When Salva's victim, Nathan Winters (now 20), publicized the hiring, some of the police officers who investigated the 1987 molestation said they were incredulous that Salva was working again as a movie director. "It just blows me away," said Officer Gary Primavera. "He has serious signs of being a pedophile." One Disney official, John Dreyer, refused to respond to Winter's demand that Disney fire Salva, saying, "What's the point other than you want to make headlines?" That's compassion for you.
FACT: In "The Little Mermaid," a scene depicts a priest becoming noticeably aroused while presiding over a wedding. Also, a castle spire on the jacket art for the video resembles a phallus.
FACT: Disney signed Martin Scorsese, the director of "The Last Temptation of Christ," to a 4-year-contract. This movie depicts Jesus, may Allah's blessings be upon him, in a vary bad manner.
FACT: Newsweek magazine reports that Disney is considering buying a movie called "Ripe" which is about the deflowering of 14-year-old twins.
FACT: Disney hired Kevin Smith to produce "Chasing Amy," is an account of a man's pursuit of a lesbian.
FACT: Disney-Owned Miramax released the homosexual movie, "Lie Down With Dogs."
Television, Children and Family Values:
FACT: Disney recently bought Capital Cities/ABC for $19 billion. On March 19, 1996, ABC aired a "Dana Carvey Show" program which featured jokes and laughter about alcohol abuse and cocaine addiction. The same show had a skit called "Under Five on Comedy Central" in which children made crude jokes and resorted to name-calling. Also on the show, Carvey portrayed George Washington using cocaine, and Ben Franklin in bed with another man. The same program had a cartoon skit entitled "The Ambiguously Gay Duo" in which two Superman-style heroes are homosexual lovers and drive a super car shaped like male genitalia. Finally, a "Celebrity Bloopers" spoof featured 17 uses of the F-word (bleeped out, of course; but its intent was clear). What more can our children and families expect from ABC?
Promotion of the Homosexual Agenda:
FACT: Michael Eisner, Chairman of the Walt Disney Company, Michael Ovitz, President of the Walt Disney Company and Joe Roth, Chairman of Walt Disney Motion Pictures, all serve as members of the Hollywood Supports Board of Trustees. Hollywood Supports is a pro-homosexual group whose focus is to promote the homosexual agenda. The Disney-endorsed group aims to tell companies how to form homosexual employee groups and provides a "Sexual Orientation in the Workplace" seminar.
FACT: Disney helped promote the 6th annual "Gay and Lesbian Day at Walt Disney World." Disney has allowed the homosexual organizers to portray Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck as homosexual lovers, and Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck as lesbians.
FACT: Disney sued a kindergarten for painting Disney characters on the wall of their child care facility. However, Disney took no legal action to prevent the "Gay Chicago Magazine" and "Gay Day at Disney" WebSite from using Disney characters to promote the "Annual Gay & Lesbian Day at Disney World." The cartoons even used the copyright script of Disney's name.
FACT: Disney has extended company health benefits to live-in partners of homosexual employees (the policy does not cover unmarried heterosexual couples who live together).
FACT: Disney president Michael Eisner is quoted as saying he thinks 40% of Disney's 63,000 employee are homosexual.
FACT: Disney has the largest gay and lesbian employee organization in the entertainment industry.
FACT: Hyperion Press, a Disney-owned subsidiary, has published "Lettin' It All Hang Out," the autobiography of RuPaul, a well-known "drag queen" (transvestite) entertainer.
FACT: Hyperion Press also published "Growing Up Gay." Written by three homosexual comedians, the book is aimed at "gay youngsters who were bred by heterosexuals."
Ellen Comes Out of the Closet!
On April 30th 1997, 42 million people in America did nothing but watch shamelessly as "Ellen came out of the closet." "Ellen" is a half-hour "family oriented" comedy that airs on ABC, a Disney owned company. Disney! Yes, the company that personifies the innocence of a child.
This prime time bonanza of homosexuality was ABC's highest-rated program of the year. The publicity campaign which began 7 months ago reached a climax as President Bill Clinton received Ellen DeGeneres (the lead character of "Ellen") and her lesbian partner, actress Anne Heche, at a White House dinner. Na'oozo billah!
To make this an easy pill to swallow for everyone, the show had a line up of big name stars including Oprah Winfrey. According to the Associated Press, Oprah is "the talk show host who is a symbol of middle-American sensibility. ...if it is OK for Oprah, it should be OK for America." Astaghfirullah!
What Muslim Children Are Watching:
Muslim children, like other American children, watch over 27,000 hours of television before they graduate from high school. This is more time than they spend in class or with their parents. Television has become the single most dominant influence in the lives of our children and it plays a crucial role in teaching them western morals and behavior. The only thing that kids do more than watch TV is sleep.
Before the average American child leaves elementary school, researchers estimate that he or she will have witnessed more than 8,000 murders on television. Thousands of rape and sexually explicit scenes, and now scenes involving homosexuality are part of what they watch. It is estimated that the average child sees 20,000 commercials per year. Children like TV ads. Nearly 4,000 studies have found link between what kids watch and how they behave.
Where do Muslim children develop their moral ideas? A substantial part of their identity can be linked directly to television. It is estimated less than 1% of Muslim children get to attend any weekend Islamic school. Muslim parents are also busy. Television, the great baby sitter is left alone to help your children grow up on a steady diet of sec, violence, and materialism.
Un-Islamic Ideals and Images:
The mammoth American communications and entertainment industries are literally stamping the psyche of the world community with the debased values, morals and culture of their choosing. History has never before witnessed the promotion of falsehood on such a vast scale.
For much of this century, Muslims have been consumers of vulgarity and indecency via the mass media. Among the Muslim children, we find an incredible desire to mimic western culture even if it means discarding their own.
Muslims can neither block the electronic media effectively nor can they ignore it. Rather we must use the media to present and promote our ideals and images. Our community has not, however, produced media which could be shared throughout the world for the benefit of all peoples.
