  • Baptists Still Cautious of Disney's Gay-Inclusive Policy - Out in Ohio 06/28/05

    Article from Out in Ohio - June 28, 2005
    Baptists Still Cautious of Disney's Gay-Inclusive Policy

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Southern Baptists ended an eight-year boycott of the Walt Disney Co. for violating "moral righteousness and traditional family values" in a vote on the final day of the denomination's annual convention Wednesday.

    "We believe for the boycott to be effective, it had to have a beginning and an ending," said Gene Mims, chairman of the Southern Baptist Convention committee that put the Disney resolution before some 12,000 members at the meeting.

    SBC delegates also approved a resolution that encourages parents to investigate their children's public schools to determine whether they are too accepting of homosexuality.

    The Disney resolution, passed at the SBC's 1997 convention in Dallas, called for Southern Baptists to refrain from patronizing Disney theme parks and Disney products, mainly because of the entertainment company's decision to give benefits to companions of gay and lesbian employees.
