Dear Bob Iger,
I have been constantly following the bidding war between Disney and Comcast for the right to buy 21st Century Fox’s movie studio. To be honest, I had hoped that Comcast would have bought Fox entertainment assets rather than Disney. As I write to you, my major fear and concern is that Disney might modify movies like the X – Men series, Avatar, and Deadpool as an attempt to integrate LGBT characters into these above mentioned movies. How do I know you will ruin these movies and others? Disney is currently making a mess of films like the Beauty of the Beast, Solo: A Star Wars Story and Thor: Ragnarok by incorporating LGBT characters.
CEO Bob Iger has built an entertainment empire with Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel, all of which are franchises his company bought within the last 12 years. Will Disney use their vast library of movies to encourage people to reject the ways of God?
You once said, “The riskiest thing we can do is just to maintain the status quo.” Can I be honest with you? I wish you had maintained the status quo as far as many of the characters you put in Disney movies and TV shows are concerned. Under your management, Disney has acquired movie studios such as Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm (Star Wars). Almost every time you obtained the rights to various movies, Disney has tried to “contemporize” those movies. Consequently, Disney is rapidly becoming an industry leader when it comes to promoting the homosexual agenda in films and TV shows.
In the coming years, I bet that most of your films and shows will feature LGBT characters and themes. For instance, there have been reports that in the movie series Frozen, the main character Elsa will turn out to be a lesbian. I also read that the Marvel movie studios are developing LGBT characters in their upcoming movies. So now, there would be gay superheroes in addition to homosexual princes and princesses in Disney movies.
The first gay character in a Marvel movie is a character name Korg who was featured in Thor: Ragnarok. Characters like Korg are helping to normalize lifestyles the Bible calls a sin.
Here is a frightening thought: Disney will control about 40% of the box office if you buy 21st Century Fox’s movie studio. Michael Nordine who writes for Indie Wire predicted that Disney would become the ‘Walmart of Hollywood.’ Some movie theatre owners fear that Disney will continue to buy movie studios and at one point will monopolize the movie industry. I strongly believe that if Disney should attempt to buy Warner Bros. movie studios, it will gain a monopoly over the movie industry. However, if this happens, it will be catastrophic for this nation as a whole as we watch a growing number of people reject biblical values.
Mr. Iger, can I share with you what I believe are the three most important truths we need to discover in life:
Not only is the LGBT community not interested in helping people to discover the above realities, but they are also deceiving people into thinking that it is okay to live whatever lifestyle they want to live and do whatever they deem fit to do with the talent God has given them. When Disney shows a gay character in one of their movies, you are helping to validate the LGBT community’s perspective on life. If a child grows up believing that there is nothing wrong with the homosexual lifestyle, inherently they believe there is something wrong with the Holy Bible. Once someone believes there something wrong with the Bible, they become filled with doubts and often rejects God.
You might think you are doing a great job contemporizing movies, but despite how some people are trying to contemporize God, His standards shouldn’t and have not changed. I wouldn’t be loving you if I don’t tell you that God is not okay with the way you are using the movie industry to get people to reject His ways.
A poll revealed that 65 percent of 18- to 24-year-olds never went to church; 9 percent said they are regular churchgoers. Most of these young people are constantly being exposed to messages in the media that are influencing them to reject the God of the Bible.
As the CEO of Disney, you can lead Disney in any way you want. God has given each us a free will. Who knows, Disney might end up monopolizing the movie industry someday. If you keep taking Disney on its current course, you will make your shareholders happy, but just know that the God of the Bible won’t be smiling at your face on Judgment Day. Bob Igler, maybe it is time to look at the big picture.
