On his “WallBuilders Live” radio program today, David Barton repeated his warning that Disney movies are anthropomorphizing animals by making people believe that they have human-like thoughts and feelings, which is causing people to essentially worship pagan gods.
“If you look back at the time of the Bible, a lot of the idols back then were actually animals,” Barton said. “Dagon was the fish God.”
Barton claimed that America never had any sort of animal rights movement until this nation got away from the Bible and Disney started producing movies like “Bambi” and “Lady and the Tramp,” in which animals were presented as human surrogates.
“The Bible tells us that you are to be kind to your animals,” he stated, “but you don’t worship your animals, you don’t make a Dagon god out of them and that’s what we’ve now done.”
