Southern Baptists Make Peace With Mickey Mouse

Southern Baptists again have a green light to ride Mr. Toad's Wild Ride, Space Mountain and other Disney attractions.

The group has voted at its annual convention to end its eight-year boycott of the Walt Disney Company for violating what the group calls "moral righteousness and traditional values." The Baptists have passed a resolution calling on Disney to serve the families of America "by providing only those products that affirm traditional family values."

The boycott began after Disney decided to give benefits to companions of gay employees.

The new resolution calls on Southern Baptists to keep an eye on Disney products and policies. Disney officials aren't yet commenting.
