Disney Makes Smart Move, Pisses off Assholes

Score one for Disney! They decided to allow anyone to get a gay wedding at the Magic Kingdom, rather than only gay couples with "marriage licenses."

It was a good business move, and a humane one:

"We believe this change is consistent with Disney's long-standing policy of welcoming every guest in an inclusive environment," Disney Parks and Resorts spokesman Donn Walker said Friday. "We want everyone who comes to celebrate a special occasion at Disney to feel welcome and respected."

Of course, the religious assholes are going to be pissed. They've made their displeasure known in the past:

In 2005, Southern Baptists ended an eight-year boycott of the Walt Disney Co. for violating "moral righteousness and traditional family values."

Last time I checked, immoral activity was happening much more in churches than in the Magic Kingdom. And where will a child be exposed to more "immoral activity," in bible stories or in Disney cartoons?

I was at a wedding in Disneyland once (not a gay wedding). One of the guests was gayand had a rainbow necklace. And when we were congratulating the newlywedds the guy in Mick Mouse costumed tapped my gay friend by the shoulder and pulled his neclace a little bit, you know in a friendly way. My friend was very glad.
