[QUOTE=llama;1095573]This is another bit of a problem - my dh isn’t exactly religious…don’t know if I should tell him in advance or spring it on him just before it starts.:whistling[/QUOTE]
You’re forgetting a few things.
The Disney Company is not going to allow any performer to inject too much of their personal beliefs into anyone’s reading or performance during the CP, or anything else in a Disney park (Narnia notwithstanding:angel:).
This isn’t Nights of Joy and the audience is secular and mixed, not exclusively comprised of joyful Christians gathered to profess their beliefs (I’m trying to be politically correct so that I don’t insult our more religious friends, whose beliefs I respect even when I don’t share them).
But look at the population of World Showcase, or WDW in general.
Every group, religion, race, and nationality are there. Disney does not want to make any guest uncomfortable, so they’ll tip toe up to the line with Christmas messages, and then haul it back in before anyone gets truly upset.
So, your hubby should be fine with any narrator that Disney has cast for the CP, be it Pat Boone, Micheal Smith, or Rob Zombie(?:whistling).
I’m certainly not a Christian, but I have no problem letting the sights and sounds of the season wash over me and through me.
And while I may not be a Christian, I am very aware that this major religious holiday has been co-opted and corrupted by capitalism and the “free market”.
