Disney World Cancels ‘Night of Joy’ Christian Music Festival

A spokesperson for Walt Disney World has confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel that last year was the final event.

The event began in 1983, and was largely held at the Magic Kingdom. During its decline over the past two years, it was moved to the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. Among the many Christian artists featured were Steven Curtis Chapman, Amy Grant, Jars of Clay, Newsboys, Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, Kirk Franklin, Michael W. Smith, CeCe Winans, Stryper, Debby Boone, Toby Mac, and MercyMe.

The Disney spokesperson said that the decision was made in order to “continually [change] our offerings,” but has yet to announce any alternative religious event.

Wake up people! Disney is nothing more than a indoctrination vehicle. Time for the MAGA people to stop going to their movies and visiting their theme parks.

Free market at work folks. Disney does what is profitable, and this apparently is not in the business plan.

You people have a SERIOUS persecution complex don't you? You know what WOULD be persecution? Disney prohibiting Christians from their parks for being Christian. Are they doing that? No.

This is a business decision. Really folks, think for a bit, and better yet, do some research before jumping to false conclusions.

From Snow White praying to God, The Jungle Book quotes the Bible, Robin Hood's Friar Tuck, Lilo & Stitch also praying for angels, Tangled is a gospel allegory, The Small One is directly a Christian story, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame is full of Christian themes and iconography.

If you for even one second, try to claim that Disney has some "anti-christian" anything, then you are just plain wrong.
