The popular pastor accuses Disney of trying to ‘reinvent family.’
The famous American pastor Franklin Graham supported the decision of the Governor of Florida to deprive Disney of special privileges and also accused the latter of spreading sin and trying to rethink the concept of “family.”

Graham accompanied his post with photos of rainbow-adorned Disney memorabilia for sale ahead of Pride, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse’s ears and pins.
Recall that state legislators have deprived the company of the right to self-government in the territories under its control. The special status has been in effect since the mid-60s and allowed Disney to independently collect taxes, have its own utilities and even offer emergency services.
