Baptists say Disney boycott working SALT LAKE CITY — The Southern Baptists' boycott of Disney is bothering the Magic Kingdom and members should keep it up, a Baptist official said last Wednesday at the faith's annual convention. This boycott has traction. This boycott has legs. It Is bothering Disney," said Richard Land, president of the faith's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. He offered no specifics on how well the boycott was working or what damage it had done to the corporation. Disney spokesman John - Dreyer said the boycott isn't bothering the company's bottom line. Disney's revenue, earnings and amusement park attendance all set records last year, he said. "I don't think we've seen any impact from it," Dreyer said. Land repeatedly pointed to Disney chairman Michael Eisner's interviews wilh the media about the boycott as proof that Southern Baptists were making an Impact, "If we weren't bothering Mickey's Empire. Mr. Eisner wouldn't be attacking us. You keep doing what's right." Land told about 8.500 "messengers." as delegates are called. attending the Salt Lake City convention. The Southern Baptists are protesting Disney's corporate practice of extending health insurance to homosexual partners of employees and of hosting homosexual and lesbians at its amusement parks and have called on members lo boycoll Disney amusement parks and movies. Mention of lhe boycoll comes as the Southern Baptists, Ihe nation's largest Protestanl denomination, pro claimed this week lhat "a wife is to submit graciously to the servant leadership of her husband, even as the church willingly submits to the headship, of Christ." The Southern Baptist Convention overwhelmingly adopted the first change to The Baptlsl Faith and Message document In 35 years, min* : new president who long has been tin* scoucge of liberals and moderates. While husband and wile are of equal worth before Cud, a husband should provide lor, protect and lead the family, and a wile has "the God given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper' in managing iheir household and nurturing the next generation." The new article on tin* family also defines marriage as "ihe uniting ot one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime.* Nearly 8.300 messengers, or delegates, wrapped up their annual convention on Thursday. The statement grabbed the nation's attention. The new article added to the Baptist Faith and Message was the first change in the statement of beliefs by the nearly 16 million-member church in 35 years. It was one of the more controversial church guidelines in recent memory: two of lhe nation's more prominent Baptists — President Clinton and Vice President <*\1 Gore — said Ihey didn't exactly agree wilh the statement. Maxine Hanks, a feminist author and excommunicated Mormon, said the new Baptist article on marriage shows conservative religions are moving closer togeiher on moral and social issues, though they slill differ drasti cally on theological matters. "This notion of women being submissive lo male authority is terribly out of balance ami it prevents these churches from evolving int o t he enlightened Christian ideal they claim." she said. The Southern Baptists are going the opposite direction from mosi other denominations, which have taken a more egalitarian stand on the relationship between husband and wife. Frank Ruff, a Roman Catholic priesl who is the liaison to the Southern Baptists from the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, said the new aiii cle will only hurl the Baptists' evange lizing. He said the word "submit" has Come to mean oppressive domination. The convention's new president, Paige Patterson, said during a press conference last Tuesday thai the 20 years of controversy were a necessary in self-definition. Soulhern Baptists, he said, needed thai time lo "unify hearts and minds to carry out what Chrisl expects us to do." And that is to evangel i/o. which Patterson said will be tlie preoccupa Uon oi his presidency. That's the pas sion of my soul," he told reporters, ion said be has set a goal of 500.000 baptisms in tlie United Slates and ,r>00,000 overseas by the year 2000. Patterson's revolution has fostered divisions with in Ihe stall* eon veil I ions, 1,500 alienated "moderate" churches on Ihe verge ol seceding and the loss of a half dozen Baptist colleges. Also last Tuesday, the proponent ol ■ ;'■-, Wall Disney Co. boycott proposed lhal Southern Baptists pull Iheir year 2000 convention out ol Orlando. Fla., and move il lo New York to further hurl ihe Disney company. Disney World and lhe coin; i newest theme park are in Orlando.
