Led by Christian author, activist, musician, and founder of Hold the Line Sean Feucht, hundreds of people gathered yesterday in front of Disney’s headquarters in Burbank, CA to protest the corporation’s recent stances on gender and sexuality.
Protestors held signs that read, “Dis-Needs to STOP,” “Stop mousing around with our kids,” “God gave kids to parents, not government,” “Disney is Demonic,” “Parents pay attention,” “Let kids be kids,” and “Disney is destitute.”
Feucht tweeted, “Parents Fight Back—We sent a message: DON’T MESS WITH OUR KIDS,” then suggested a possible protest at Disney’s Orlando, FL and Anaheim, CA locations next.
Playing on a flatbed truck, Feucht and his band sang worship songs with the crowd of peaceful protestors outside the Alameda gate of the Disney Studio Lot, where Disney’s headquarters is located.
He was also joined by pastor Rob McCoy of Godspeak Calvary Chapel in Newbury Park, CA, who addressed the crowd, encouraging the church to awaken to its responsibility. After McCoy, pastor Samuel Deuth from Awakened Church in San Diego, CA challenged the parents, specifically fathers, to stand up and defend their children and lead their families while reading Joshua 24.
Other leaders spoke to the crowd, including a testimony from a man that grew up with two moms, and a current Disney employee who is a cast member. The longtime employee thanked those in attendance for their courage and shared that it has gotten “very political and it’s gotten very hard to be who you are. It’s gotten very hard to be someone who had conservative values—someone who believes in the right to choose. Somebody who believes it’s okay to stand up for righteousness.”
Keturah, Feucht’s 11-year-old daughter, joined her father on the stage and prayed.
“She’s the reason why I’m here,” Feucht told the crowd. He shared that when he held her in his arms when she was born, he knew that his life was more about her destiny than his own. He said that news outlets can shred him apart for what he is doing, but Feucht said he doesn’t “give a rip—I’m living for the next generation.”
“They can call us white nationalists. They can call us racist. They can call us homophobic,” Feucht said. “They can call us whatever. But they’re never gonna get me to stop fighting for my kids! Nothing is gonna get me to stop fighting for my kids!”
Feucht explained that he believes his daughter’s generation has been one of the most assaulted generations in human history, saying, “They’re dealing with crazy amounts of propaganda. They’re dealing with crazy amounts of indoctrination in the schools and on tv. This generation is going to bring revival to the earth. This generation is going to crush the head of the serpent. That’s why the enemy is coming after them with such fury.”
