Christian group abandons Disney boycott

LOS ANGELES, May 24 (Reuters) - A conservative Christian group has ended a nine-year boycott of the Walt Disney Co (DIS.N: Quote, Profile, Research) , citing as "positive signs" the departure of Chief Executive Michael Eisner and the release of a film based on the children's book "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."

Mississippi-based American Family Association said it ended its campaign to stop Disney from "promoting homosexuality" to focus on "new challenges in the culture wars" such as the appointment of federal judges and same-sex marriage laws.

The group called off the campaign without achieving any of the changes in corporate behavior it sought, including a call for Disney to ban "Gay Day" revelers from its theme parks and set up an advisory panel of evangelical Christians.
