Southern Baptists Forced to Reconsider Disney Boycott
The ineffectiveness of their decision to boycott Disney has led Southern Baptists to reconsider their strategy. Leaders of the denomination asked their followers on August 13 to keep from spending at least $100 on Disney products and services over the next year. This goal is more modest than the original one Southern Baptists voted for in June, which was a complete boycott of Disney. The denomination opposes what it calls Disney's "Christian-bashing, family-bashing, pro-homosexual agenda."
