On September 17, the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City formally announced that it would divest the Archdiocese of all stock in the Walt Disney Corporation. The decision by Archbishop Eusebius J. Beltran cited the work of the Catholic League: “This action has been taken in light of recent actions which we consider not only blatantly anti-Catholic but objectionable to Christians of many denominations. We have found ourselves guided in this action through a careful study of numerous documents published by Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights of New York.
The Catholic League welcomes the decision by Archbishop Beltran and is particularly pleased that our work was helpful in his ruling. Congratulations to the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City!
