Miley Cyrus Praises Disney Channel for "Inspiring" Introduction of Gay Characters

by at . Comments

Miley Cyrus has taken a break from Twerking to shower The Disney Channel with praise.

In response to the news - reported last week by TV Guide - that Good Luck Charlie will introduce a character with lesbian parents on its fourth season, Cyrus has taken to Twitter in shock and awe.

"is this true?!?!?! I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation," Cyrus wrote yesterday. "They control…so much of what kids think! Life isn't bright sets & wardrobe & kids becoming superstars! This is INSPIRING"

Cyrus has long been an advocate of gay and lesbian rights.

She has an equal sign tattooed on her finger and wrote an editorial last year in defense of gay marriage.

Anticipating backlash over its casting, meanwhile, a Disney Channel spokesperson told TV Guide in a statement:

"This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors…Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."

Miley owes a lot to her dad; she got her start thru him. She doesn't remember the harder time between him and Trish.before she was born.
She needs to really get her act together and stop pointing fingers at others. He doesn't owe her an explanation. Trish was the first to cheat. She's out of hand being the wild child. She lost her boyfriend over it.

Miley: Will DC be as 'Inspiring' for you,as you were Inspiring to me? Those are pretty big shoes to fill---Hope Disney is up for it! LOL!
I kid! I don't doubt for a second that Disney is up for the challenge. If we've learned anything over the years,it's the dyed-in-the-wool fact that Disney is all about the children. If they make-it, and/or show-it---it'll only Benefit kid's---believe that! They've come way too-far to start running-the-wrong-train...
It's always nice to see Miley give credit where it's due,no matter what it's for. That's what star's are supposed to do. Especially so,when they have nothing to gain from it...Go,kitten!
Later all; Hollywood---out...

There is nowhere in the bible that states homosexuality is a sin. It honestly doesn't matter who you're with, love is love.

You haven't read the bible. Jesus and Moses both called it out. Man is not to lay with man
