ORLANDO, Fla. — Photographs and videos have emerged online of a rainbow Mickey Mouse hat that is being sold at Disney’s theme parks in Florida and California, the latest development in the company’s continued accommodation of the sin of homosexuality.
“Disney World got gay ears and I need to get them just to [vulgarity] off old religious people,” one visitor posted to social media. “Disney now has gay [expletive] ears!” another wrote.
The red hat features rainbow ears and embroidery of two Mickey hands forming a rainbow heart.
The site Hornet reports that the offering is exclusive to Disney World and Disneyland, especially the shops Emporium, Fantasy Faire and The Chapeau Hat Shoppe, and is called “Mickey Mouse Rainbow Love.” It sells for $17.99, and can also feature the wearer’s name in rainbow embroidery at an additional cost.
“We offer a wide range of merchandise items that appeal to guests of diverse backgrounds,” a representative told the Huffington Post.
As previously reported, the company, known for its “Magic Kingdom” and theatrical representations of magical powers and sorcery, has been including homosexuality in its movies and Disney Channel productions in recent years.
In October, the second season premiere of the teen series “Andi Mack” featured a “coming out scene,” as one of the main male characters acknowledged that he is jealous of his female friend’s new relationship as he likes the boy that she is dating.
In August, an episode of the preschooler-geared Disney Junior cartoon “Doc McStuffins” featured an animated depiction of the lesbian mothers of two children.
Disney also aired its first-ever same-sex kissing scene during a broadcast of its cartoon “Star vs. the Forces of Evil.”
Bill Condon, director of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” live-action remake, similarly revealed last year that that the film would include a subtle “gay moment.”
Condon told the outlet Attitude that homosexuals have had a history with “The Beauty and the Beast” as the man who wrote the lyrics for the animated version of the film, released in 1991, had been fighting AIDS while working on the project. Howard Ashman died before the movie was released in theaters.
“It was his idea not only to make it into a musical, but also to make Beast one of the two central characters,” Condon outlined. “Until then, it had mostly been Belle’s story that they had been telling.”
“Specifically for him, it was a metaphor for AIDS,” he said. “He was cursed, and this curse had brought sorrow on all those people who loved him, and maybe there was a chance for a miracle—and a way for the curse to be lifted. It was a very concrete thing that he was doing.”
However, late British preacher J.C. Ryle, who often spoke on the natural depravity of the human heart and the need for rebirth by the Holy Spirit, once said:
“The Christianity which is from the Holy Spirit will always have a very deep view of the sinfulness of sin. It will not merely regard sin as a blemish and misfortune, which makes men and women objects of pity, and compassion. It will see in sin the abominable thing which God hates, the thing which makes people guilty and lost in his Maker’s sight, the thing which deserves God’s wrath and condemnation.”
“It will look on sin as the cause of all sorrow and unhappiness, of strife and wars, of quarrels and contentions, of sickness and death—the curse which cursed God’s beautiful creation, the cursed thing which makes the whole earth groan and struggle in pain. Above all, it will see in sin the thing which will ruin us eternally, unless we can find a ransom—lead us captive, except we can get its chains broken—and destroy our happiness, both here and hereafter, except we fight against it, even unto death.”
