Disney's Orka and Flix (Star Wars animation)A parents' watchdog group finds it "completely unnecessary" that Disney has chosen to proudly inject the issue of homosexuality into an animated series for children.

As reported by Yahoo.com, a Disney spokesperson has confirmed that two characters in the animated series Star Wars Resistance – shop operators Orka and Flix (pictured) – are "gay." That report quotes executive producer Justin Ridge saying: "I think it's safe to say they're an item. They're absolutely a gay couple and we're proud of that."

Monica Cole, director of OneMillionMoms, says she isn't surprised by the disclosure. "And even though OneMillionMoms is not shocked by this news, we're all extremely disappointed that now they are openly including a gay couple – which we find completely unnecessary," she shares.

Cole contends that Disney is more concerned about pushing a liberal agenda rather than just focusing on providing family-friendly content.

"We already know, with the inclusion of the gay couple, [that] makes this show far from family-friendly," she tells OneNewsNow. "Disney should just stick to entertaining children – since this is one if the few children's networks on television – and completely avoid these mature and controversial topics such as homosexuality."

The director for 1MM says it's crucial that parents are warned about the content in this popular franchise spinoff. "We wanted everyone to be aware that the Disney media empire is sacrificing children's innocence by doing this," she adds.

The series premiered on the Disney Channel last year, and the second season began October 6. OneMillionsMoms.com offers parents the ability to sign an online petition expressing their displeasure with Disney for pushing its LGBT agenda on families and children.
