Jerry Bowyer: Time for Shareholders to Use Their Voice and Their Vote

From firing conservative actress Gina Carano, to putting trigger warnings on Muppets shows and turning ESPN into something resembling MSNBC, Disney has become one of the most politicized major corporations in America.

Now, if Disney executives want to promote leftism on their own time and on their own dime, that’s their prerogative. But Disney is a publicly traded corporation. Its shares are owned by millions of Americans—like you, perhaps, in your in your IRA or 401(k) account.

So that’s your money they’re using against you. But good news: you are in charge. It’s time to use your authority. Disney’s annual meeting is March 9. If you’re a shareholder, you can participate in it online this year and you can vote on board members and on various questions.

It’s time more of the nation let their shares be their voice to a company which has heard from only one side for far too long.

You have a vote. Use your vote.

Jerry Bowyer: Gina Carano Finds Opportunity in Wake of Cancellation

UFC champion turned movie star Gina Carano was recently fired by Disney from the popular show, “The Mandalorian.” Why? Because she pointed out that one of the lessons of 1930s Germany is that when we start to hate our neighbors over political differences, we set ourselves on a path to escalating intolerance.

As if to prove the point, Disney wrote her popular character off the show. Sometimes people—yes, even conservatives—say things in social media which are beyond the pale. But, Carano’s words were not beyond the pale.

But … instead of wallowing in victimism, Carano is entering into a film-making venture with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

I don’t like cancel culture, but what I like even less is conservative victimology. Carano and Shapiro are doing the right thing, building new and maybe even better institutions than the ones that blackballed her.

Every cancellation, every delisting, every ban and shadow ban is yet another opportunity to build better alternatives.

Albert Mohler: The Greatest Legislative Threat to Religious Liberty in Decades

Theo Hobson—a British liberal thinker—defines a moral revolution this way: “That which was repudiated must be celebrated. That which was celebrated must be repudiated. And those who will not celebrate must themselves be repudiated.”

Hobson’s words are very relevant in light of the Equality Act which was introduced last week by Democrats in the House of Representatives. As we watch the advance of the full array of LGBTQ-plus issues, sometimes the law is the last to change, not the first. Higher education and entertainment, of course, have come first—they changed first.

We’ve seen the Equality Act before, but this time it is introduced with a president who has declared his active support for the revolutionary legislation.

It represents the greatest threat to religious liberty in my decades of American public life.

If signed into law, it will be very, very difficult for any Christian college, or ministry or university to operate with Christian conviction.

It’s almost sure to pass by the democratic majority in the House.

Our only hope is that somehow this legislation can be stopped in the Senate.

If not, we’re in big trouble.
