We all make predictions, but most of the time they are of no real consequence when we’re wrong. Bob Iger, the Disney CEO, made a prediction nearly a year ago that not only proved him to be wrong, it proved how morally challenged he is.

Last February, Iger, who at that time was the retired Disney CEO (he subsequently managed to worm his way back in), stuck his nose into something he should have stayed out of: he publicly announced his opposition to parental rights by condemning efforts by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and the state legislature, to ban teaching kids grades K-3 about sex. (The Disney CEO at the time, Bob Chapek, agreed and led the charge against parents.)

The central issue driving this discussion was allowing teachers to question kids in the early grades about their status of being a boy or a girl. Are you happy being a boy or a girl? This baited question is designed to get children to consider the possibility of switching their sex. It is the most pernicious part of the LGBT agenda.

Iger did more than encourage Disney to work against parental rights—he accused those who supported the bill of promoting hatred, and possibly violence. “If passed, this bill will put vulnerable, young LGBTQ people in jeopardy.”

The bill went into effect July 1. Where is the evidence that “young LGBTQ people” have been endangered?

Iger demonized a large swath of Americans, mostly Christian, by accusing them of promoting a cause that endangers innocent children. It was a despicable thing to do.

It is for these reasons that the Catholic League decided to do a documentary on what has happened to Disney. The wait is about over. The film will debut on Monday, January 23rd.
