Evangelical pastor Franklin Graham has blasted Disney for having its morals ‘in the gutter’ while backing Florida Governor Ron DeSantis in his battle with the firm.

Writing on Facebook Saturday, the hardline Christian told his 10 million followers he was glad the entertainment firm’s power and finances were being pounded after it came out against DeSantis’s so-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law.

Graham said: ‘What has happened at Disney is moral failure. Walt Disney had a vision for wholesome family entertainment. He was committed to the family. Tories accuse Angela Rayner of Basic Instinct ploy to distract Boris: MPs claim Labour deputy leader likes to put PM ‘off his stride’ by crossing and uncrossing her legs at PMQs , and other top stories from April 24, 2022.PauseFull-screenREAD MORE

‘The morals of the corporate leadership of Disney today are in the gutter, and they want to redefine family counter to God’s original design and flaunt sin.’

The son of late celebrity evangelist Billy Graham continued: ‘LGBTQ activists are using corporations to force their agenda on the public, and companies may want to take another look at what they are allowing to happen. Disney has gone too far. 

‘The people of Florida have revolted, and it’s going to cost Disney big time. Disney had a special tax status in the state which they benefitted from in a huge way—but because they came out against the parents of Florida, the governor and legislators have revoked that status.’Franklin Graham excoriated Disney in this post shared to his Facebook feed Sunday+7View gallery

‘Thank God for Governor Ron DeSantis who is willing to take a bold stand. We need more leaders like him. God bless him and the Florida legislature.’ 

Graham accompanied his post with photographs of rainbow-emblazoned Disney pride items for sale in a drugstore, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse ears, as well as pin badges.

He added that he was in Orlando for a fundraising event for his Samaritan’s Purse nonprofit, and urged families who visited the area to see its other attractions while avoiding Disney. 

The pastor previously stoked controversy in 2010 by insisting that former President Barack Obama was a Muslim.

He branded Islam ‘wicked and evil’ in the wake of 9/11, and stoked further controversy after it was revealed he was drawing two salaries totaling $1.2 million from the Billy Graham Organization and Samaritan’s Purse.  

On Friday, Governor DeSantis signed a new measure into law that ends Disney’s special governing power over its huge Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando. 

It had previously been allowed to run the area – known as Reedy Creek – largely free from government oversight on issues such as building regulations.

The rule could come into effect from June 2023, although there is still room for negotiation, and one conservative lawyer says she believes Disney could successfully sue DeSantis for violating its First Amendment right to free speech. 

Disney found its power curtailed after it came out against DeSantis’s so-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, whose official title is the Parental Rights in Education Bill.

It prohibits public school instruction on gender and sexuality between kindergarten and third grade.
