Can We Talk About the Disney Channel?


Y’all, we need to talk about the Disney Channel and why your kids should not be watching it. No, I’m not talking about the Disney Channel being an avenue for mainstreaming transgenderism, the gay rights agenda, etc., though it is. That’s why we have not let our kids watch the channel.

But set that aside. Have you considered the number of child stars who have gone from Disney into rehab? We have DUI’s, meth, cocaine, heroin, and that’s not all. There have long been allegations about abuse and other traumatic experiences too. Nickelodeon has had rumors about it going on too.

But here’s the thing you can probably understand at a gut level. For there to be that many kids coming out of the Disney Channel who are that screwed up, something has to be going on there and our kids watching that channel are subsidizing whatever it is.

The rumors have been so rampant for so long and the number of celebrities headed from Disney to rehab are so fairly consistent, I have to wonder what is happening and where are the parents. In fact, we know that often the parents are turning blind eyes because they like the income stream and many other times they have no idea.

If you are a person of faith watching that channel, I cannot encourage you enough to turn it off. It’s not good for your kids. But I’m also pretty sure it is not good for the kids your kids are watching.
