Text: James 5.19-20
On the radio, we welcome you; and on television, we welcome you. This is the First Baptist Church in Dallas, and this is the pastor bringing the message entitled A Winner of Souls. It is an exposition of the last verses of the Book of James. In our preaching through the Book of James, we have come to the last chapter and the last verses. Next Sunday we will conclude our long series on this letter of the pastor of the church at Jerusalem, and it will be entitled The Coming of the Lord.

The Disney Channel is no longer fit for children to view. I can no longer trust Disney at all. If they do it once, they’ll do it again and again and again. I fully expect they are not far from producing an animated movie with a princess meets princess and prince meets prince where they kiss and everyone lives happily every after. Everyone but me.
When my granddaughters wanted to watch Good Luck Charlie, I sat and watched it with them. It was (and I do mean “was”) another one of those shows I could sit through and point out moral values. I could also address how selfish, insecure and self-centered the mother, Amy, was in the show — how she is always upstaging her children. She is made to seem lovable and quite comical with how she interferes, but it’s plain to me that she wants what she wants and is going to show her kids up in every situation possible. In one episode, she tries to steal her toddler’s artwork and use it as her own. The show gives a demeaning view of women in general, and I do hope my granddaughters do not grow up to be anything like her. HOWEVER…
That’s not the issue that broke the proverbial camel’s back for eliminating this show and every other Disney show from my television viewing. NOPE.
I could use her shenanigans to point to the better characteristics of my granddaughters’ own family units and how their mother was sacrificial and nothing like Charlie’s mom. Her kids are always getting into one silly predicament after another; but in the end, they work things out in ways that show a better way of doing “life” in general. That is, until now.
Enter the lesbians.
“This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors,” a spokesperson for Disney Channel said when the casting was first announced in June 2013. “Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.” click HERE to read more of this report.
Yeah. Disney has decided it is “relevant” to introduce the two lesbian women to the show to force-feed their view of “inclusiveness and diversity.” Thus, it is quite clear to me that Disney no longer wants my granddaughters to view their channel with Good Luck Charlie — or any other show. If they feel it is their responsibility to force-feed that trash and perversion down my throat in their shows, then my only recourse is to boycott all Disney programming. No more movies. No more television channel. I will henceforth be playing cards with my grandchildren when they come over. We’ll go back to jigsaw puzzles, Monopoly, Candyland and matchgames. We’ll do pick-up sticks, Yahtzee and Scrabble. We’ll bake cookies and pies and cupcakes. And I’ll be reading Little House on the Prairie, as well as watching the reruns of the shows.
Disney and other shows seek to infiltrate our lives with their constant barrage of shows and unacceptable perversions. While only 9 percent of the country is supposedly homosexual and lesbian, our entire country is suppose to not only bake them wedding cakes and tolerate their behavior — we are to accept it as normal and pure. It is not. It is not normal. It is not natural. It is not pure. It is against all things holy, and as long as I have breath, I will state the biblical view of that as well as the biblical view of fornication and adultery and every other sin that God directs us to repent of and turn away from. I will do whatever I can do to protect my grandchildren from seeing the perversion of society as normal. I will not subject myself to the promotion of all things of God as evil or intolerant.
I don’t watch filthy awards shows, nor do I condone sexually driven commercials. I no longer eat at Burger King or Carl’s Jr. I dropped my Go-Daddy domain names. I refuse to watch shows that write in political views that denounce all things conservative or Christian; so, bye-bye Law and Order and Chicago Fire.
I am constantly turning off the television set — or switching the channel — it’s ridiculous. I rarely go to a movie. Even Saving Mr. Banks failed to draw me to the box office. Why? Because one of the most liberal-supportive actors in Hollywood was the star of that show — Tom Hanks. I won’t give him another dime to push his liberal agendas down my throat by donating to his political party. I know I’m nobody in the scheme of things. I know my 9 bucks means nothing to their billions. But I will not bow down to Baal. That is what I do every single time I watch a movie or listen to a song any of these people produce. I’m done. So, Good Luck Charlie and Disney, I’m through with you.

Statler and Waldorf. You might not recognize those names unless you’re a big fan of the Muppets. Each week as their television show began, these two grumpy men sat in a box seat in the balcony, heckling the other Muppets, especially Fozzie Bear. They would critique each performance, shouting out, “That’s not funny!” and then joke and laugh together. Their ad-lib antics were one of my favorite parts of the show.
I find myself in the same position as Statler and Waldorf as I evaluate today’s society. I believe one of the best indicators of our moral decay is not what’s happening in our schools or churches, but what we deem as humor. If you don’t believe me, look at what comes streaming across your television set.
