He was a champion of values, morals and honesty to children everywhere. His ability to see through the faults of an individual and reach out to show support and embrace the quality within a person was one of his many qualities. Even now, I feel that heart warming tug deep inside my chest when I hear that loud, cheerful laugh that makes you feel like riding off into the sunset for one last great adventure. You had a friend in Sheriff Woody.
But now Woody has sadly become apart of something that saddens me not only as a person, a Disney fan, but also as a Christian. Woody became a supportive voice to gay rights. Yes partner, that lovable and gentle champion of personal character has become a fixture to a new video that aired during a recent episode of ‘Glee’ called the, ‘It gets better project’ by Google and Dan Savage. The one minute and thirty-one second clip has inspired thousands in response to this popular, celebrity endorsed video series. Sadly though, Woody has become a victim in the ongoing war on traditional Christian morality and whose voice and image has been lent to this propaganda tool by those who seek to undermine established values.
Now, of course we know that Sheriff Woody is a fictional character created by Pixar and Disney, but his impact on children has not only been great, but also influential. This brings me to what I am beginning to see within this homosexual spirit of deception that is sweeping across this nation, and that is this – it not only wants adults, now it wants your children as well.
We’ve come to a new tactic in warfare and by far, this is the most concise, deliberate and well orchestrated attack yet on the minds of children to date. Make no mistake, the enemy succeeded in making it even more difficult in what parents can allow their children to watch as well as read. For by using a popular image of a loveable cowboy, where millions of influential children will follow every word and idea spoken at the pull of a string, the enemy has cleverly hand picked the one innocent figure that will lead many children astray. What better teaching tool of tolerance and acceptance than Sheriff Woody and his pals?
The war on Christianity, it’s values, and the word of God, has become all too clear in these last days that we are most certainly in, and that is this, anything is game – even an animated character. So while I sadly say “Good-bye partner” to a friend, I chalk it up to the casualty of spiritual warfare. Still, I find comfort in knowing that we’re not truly alone, for there is one who goes with us that is closer than a brother, for it is he who reminds us all that we truly do ‘have a friend in me’.
