Christian Group Warning Orlando Visitors about Disney's 'Gay Days'
Agape Press ^ | May 25, 2004 | Jenni Parker

Posted on 05/25/2004 1:28:29 PM PDT by Cracker72

(AgapePress) - A Christian activist group has developed a three-point strategy to warn unsuspecting families coming to Orlando, Florida, about the very family-unfriendly homosexual pride festival known as "Gay Days at Walt Disney World."

The Christian Action Network (CAN) is engaging in an all-out effort to inform families, school groups, and others of what they can expect from the homosexual event long before they enter the so-called Magic Kingdom. The group plans to use literature, road signs, and even a mobile advertisement to get the word out about the offensive and often X-rated goings on at the Walt Disney World theme park during Gay Days, which CAN says is scheduled for June 3-6, 2004.

Martin Mawyer, president of CAN, calls the public information campaign "a victory for unsuspecting families who do not want their children exposed to homosexual nudity, fondling, groping, kissing, and sex acts." And, he adds, "it is a defeat for the Disney Company, which refuses to notify them."

Mawyer notes that CAN has been asking Disney officials for six years to warn unsuspecting families and groups arriving during Gay Days, but the company has refused. Now, he says, since Disney has refused to issue a warning, CAN will.

In order to educate the public about Gay Days at Walt Disney World, the Christian group will take a three-pronged approach. The effort involves posting large road signs around the Orlando area that read: "Warning! Gay Days at Disney in June"; having a van drive up and down Interstate 4 with a similar warning and the specific dates of the homosexual celebration; and distributing pamphlets at the Orlando International Airport informing families about the kinds of things to which families and children would be exposed in public areas of the park during the homosexual celebration.

The pamphlet gives a detailed listing of some of the decadence actually scheduled for this year's Gay Days, including a homosexual parade, a "Gay and Lesbian Youth Meeting," poolside and "Foam" parties, and events described as "Taboo Magic Hour," "Lesbo-a-Go-Go," and "Pixie Flix" for "homo-Nuerotic fun." The literature also notes that extreme nudity and sex acts are to be expected at many of these events, and tells potential visitors to be aware that anyone wearing red clothing may be taken for a participant in the homosexual celebration.

"Our warning program will definitely be more effective and sweeping than anything Disney would volunteer to do," CAN's president says. In fact, he feels the information campaign is an even better solution than the company posting warning signs at the entrance of the park.

"The strategy of Christian Action Network will warn these families long before they reach Disney entrance gates," Mawyer says, "and it will give thousands of families an opportunity to revise their plans in Orlando."

"Disney has refused to issue a warning"

A responsible company should warn it's customers about something they will most likely find very offensive.

Theoretical situation: NAMBLA is at this event and your 5 year old son is wearing a red t-shirt. One of these gay-day homosexuals grab your kid. Who would you sue?

B) NAMBLA

Wrong question. The right question is, "Which handgun, in which caliber, would you use?"

As unsavory as this event may be, I think Disney sees a cash cow. Gays have a larger portion of disposable income than do straights, in general.

Walt is surely rolling in his grave.

Very true, but say you did shoot one of these creeps, you would be seen as the evil-doer according to the news report. That's how they would spin the story. The irony is you'd be up for murder in the first degree and this gay-day homosexual would walk.

Does anyone really believe this overblown rhetoric? Somehow I don't really see anyone running around naked at Disney World committing sex acts.

OK, but that's really short-sighted and STOOPID.

Gays fill the park for one week - or is it two.

If it's empty all the other weeks, that's a problem.

Just what the flying blue f*** does Disney World have to do with sexual orientation??? Were gays discriminated against at the doors and not allowed into the theme park? Were they held in internment camps or something???

Cuz gee, you know - kids under 10 don't understand how homos have sex. I think I need Disneyworld and a bunch of people that can't think with anything except their genitals to teach them about it. Course, the kids probably (hopefully) don't know what sex is or even how straight people do it or, well, anything about it. Why? CUZ THEY'RE LITTLE KIDS!!!

You know what, I'm Jewish - I don't think Disney properly recognizes my ethnicity. I feel I must have a parade in my honor. Oh and while this parade is going on, there will be roving bands of rabbis circumsizing everyone in sight and stapling dreadlock-sideburns to everyone's skull.

Oh wait, that's what the problem is - there's no gay doll in the "It's a small world after all" ride. No "Lemmiwinks The Gerbil King" ride.

Sorry. I live near San FranFlame-o. It gets to me sometimes...

Evidently, you missed the videos. This or a similar group has been videotaping the event for several years. O'Reilly put some on the air with blurs in the appropriate places a few months ago.

I hear ya. We can't even afford to go to a baseball game anymore unless the library is giving away seats in the nosebleed section.

Of course, now that we live in Oklahoma, ironically home of many great ball players (think Mickey Mantle), there is no home team to root for so this is a moot point.

WONDERFUL. We wound up in Orlando during this crap a few years back. We had never planned to go to Disney--I cannot in good conscience support a company that so wholeheartedly embraces and supports such sick perversion--but it was CERTAINLY not limited to Disney. Universal was full of it, too. We got to the Holy Land Experience and almost didn't want to leave its safety.

I looked at your link and other than some kissing and nekkid bums, I don't see anything that looks public.

I know straight couples who have had sexual relations on some of the rides. This looks tame.

It may be tame compared to what goes on in the privacy of the bedroom, but I wouldn't want to expose young children to it.

Of course not. I didn't see any children in any of the photos. That alone, of course, does not make it right.

I think Disney is wrong to promote this, but that is their right as a company. I would certainly stay away during Gay Days, but far be it for me to tell them how to run their business.

Wouldn't it be fun to take the Family and say a 5 year old son and show up there at Disney not knowing that the 'moes had taken over for the weekend (cause Disney didn't let you know that the 'moes were taking over that weekend). And you get to see wonderful educational things like 'Moes crotch grabbing and doing some oral or other types of sex simulation and having all of that go on right in front of your 5 year old son.

I really don't want to explain preverted acts to my 5 year old.
But Hey!
To each thier own I guess.

" ...extreme nudity "

What is this? Does "nudity" really need a qualifier? Isn't this a term like "a little pregnant?" Have we rendered our entire collection of nouns to be nondescript?

nu-di-ty, n., 1. the state or fact of being nude; nakedness.
nude, adj., 1. naked or unclothed. 5. an unclothed human figure.
The Random House College Dictionary - 1978 (old faithful)

People don't misuse the word "nude". You don't go around saying, "My head is nude because I forgot my hat today." Or, "My feet are nude because I like to run around barefoot." Don't we all know what nude is?

Please, can't we preserve our language? So few of us speak it already.

And I appreciate your *sigh* 'cause I do the same.
But it does not detract from the point that Disney is culpable and should warn those that would buy tickets to go to Disney World for the 'moefest weekend.

They aren't.


However, I am prejudiced.


From my profile page:



I am an unrepentant Disney lover.

I know as a FReeper I'm supposed to hate it, but I don't and I won't. Some of the happiest times of my life have been spent with my family at the Magic Kingdom. I've never seen people boinking in the fountains or same-sex couples doing so much as hold hands at Disney. I don't think I've ever heard a cuss-word at Disney. Disney Cast Members have never been anything but kind and good to my daughter.

I think Disney, like everything else, is what you make of it. If you're looking to get mad, I am sure there will be somethng for you to get mad about.

For me, Disney is about the Dumbo ride, and the fireworks and Mickey and seeing my daughter's face light up. I can't wait to go back.

AND as an "Add On"


We once screwed up and went to Disney during "Gay Days". Other than seeing a lot of people in Red T-Shirts, the above post still applies....

When we went, we did not KNOW it was Gay Days.

No boinking, and despite the fact that my husband wore a red T that first day, and so did my daughter's godfather, ( accident. they both grabbed the red onr) No ONE molested, hot on them, or anything!

Nor was there anything bad to be seen!

the ONLY way we found out about "Gay Days" is because I noticed all of the red shirts, asked a Cast Member and got told WHY.

Something to think about. The one guy in the photos had a sign on the back of his shirt, based on the Mastercard commercial. The last line read:

"...the shock, scared looks...priceless."

That tells something right there. "Shocked, scared" looks are what these here's-my-sexual-orientation-in-your-face idiots are looking for. Do you think expect to get it just by wearing red shirts? No, they have - and will continue to - put on a show to get what they are looking for.

The irony is you'd be up for murder in the first degree and this gay-day homosexual would walk.

Which means that since you can't save yourself but you must defend your child from molestation that you have to bring lots of reloads and cure as many of the perverts as you can before they take you down or into custody. Of course the sodomite who molested your child would not walk, or breath ever again.

A far better course of action is to avoid all sodomite companies like disney, and shun all sodomites as well. Some studies (The Gay Report particularly) put the percentage of sodomites who molest (or have molested) at over 50%. For the safety of our children every sodomite MUST be considered a child molestor

There is some deliberate misrepresentation of the facts going on here.

Those opposed to gay days at Disney are painting this picture that gays are all over the park, in every area, running around naked and groping people, even five year olds. If that were truly the case, people would be arrested.

Anyone with an ounce of reasoning and critical analysis skills knows that's just a bunch of bull. These photos look like they were taken indoors, possibly at a private party, and probably at Pleasure Island, Disney's adults only nightclub.

You may not like gays, and you may not like gay days at Disney, but when you so blatantly distort the truth, you lose credibility and give people every reason to take everything you say with a grain of salt and a jaundiced eye.
