"Rescuing" Disney




Set your affection on things above,

  2. Many good points! I knew none of this stuff about Disney (and the entertainment industry in general) growing up. I am glad that I have been educated before I had children. Now I know what to protect my son against.

  3. I agree with you about Disney however, there is so much materials shown in Hollywood media that to me is anti-Christian. Like Harry Potter and just the way actors and actresses interact on the stage.
