(Natural News) Luis Ruiz, the co-founder of Orlando, Florida-based Fearless Identity Ministries (FIM), denounced the Walt Disney Company on the April 14 episode of “Byline Anew” on Brighteon.TV. He also lauded Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for standing up against the transgender agenda, a sentiment program host Fior Hernandez agreed to.
Prior to establishing FIM, Ruiz was part of the LGBT community. But after surviving the 2016 Pulse Night Club shooting, he turned over a new leaf and left the LGBT community for Jesus Christ. Ruiz then founded FIM together with Angel Colon, who also survived the shooting incident that killed 49 people.
Hernandez then asked Ruiz his opinion on Disney’s involvement with the transgender agenda. She cited Charlee Corra, the great-grandson of Disney co-founder Roy O. Disney, coming out as a female-to-male transgender as a recent example of this. Corra proceeded to condemn alleged anti-LGBTQ bills, specifically zeroing in on Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Act (PREA) set to take effect on July 1.
“As believers, it shouldn’t surprise us [because] we saw this coming,” said Ruiz. “I love seeing that people are standing up, I love seeing that people are rising up and saying ‘You know what? If you choose to believe that way, we’re walking away.'” (Related: Disney’s support of LGBT movement proves costly: Nearly 7 in 10 Americans no longer want to do business with the company.)
The FIM co-founder also pointed to Disney’s hypocrisy – which also extends to the Left. He elaborated: “This side is allowed to inject curse words [and] sexual perversion into cartoons and movies. But [when the other side shows how] to follow Jesus, pick up [one’s] cross, not live by the patterns of the world and abstain from [those] things, now that’s not allowed.”
“Everyone knows that if you talk to the kids [and] can change their minds, you can get Mom and Dad to buy products … and change their opinions. And so what [does Disney] does? They go into the elementary schools. If they talk to the kids [and] change their minds, they can change a whole generation. So that’s exactly what they’re trying to do.”
Ruiz: Gov. DeSantis “bold and courageous” for standing up against trans indoctrination
Ruiz expressed thankfulness for DeSantis’ backbone and resolve in the current time after Hernandez asked him what he thought of the Republican governor. He said: “I’m so thankful for Gov. Ron DeSantis, [as] he has been bold. For such a time as this, I believe God has planted him in [Florida] – where there is a massive revival happening and people are starting to be bold. I hear what other governors say: They are watching what our governor is doing and applying it to their cities [and] states.”
“I’m glad that he’s leading this charge for change and just that boldness of saying ‘You know what? We’re not doing that. If all of you guys want to believe what you believe, we’re not teaching sexuality to [students in kinder] through third grade.’ I could just sit here and thank God for sending up someone really bold and courageous for this time.”
Despite this, both Ruiz and Hernandez acknowledged the fact that DeSantis is on the receiving end of hate from the LGBT community and its allies.
“They hate him, the activists and a whole bunch of people. They just don’t want [anything] to do with him because he stands up for righteousness, he’s standing up for what we believe in,” remarked the FIM co-founder.
Hernandez agreed, adding: “I think what’s sad is that people don’t take the time to even investigate a little further into what [DeSantis] is doing, what the PREA says and the rights that he is protecting. He is not the person that critics [are] trying to make him out to be – it’s just the narrative that’s built around him. Obviously far from perfect, [but] no one is perfect, right?”
“[In] many places I go to, when they hear that I’m from Florida, the things I hear [are] ‘You have a good governor,’ ‘We want your governor’ or ‘Oh, you’re so lucky.’ And then I immediately say ‘Hey, I know you want him for president – but I’d like him to stay in Florida, thank you very much.'”
