When one little girl tried to post what she was thankful for this year on the Disney Channel website, she was blocked because of her reference to God.


'It's Happening to Me in My Community': Atheists Sue Mayor Over Prayer Vigil


10-year-old Lilly Anderson and her mother, Julie, spoke to Elisabeth Hasselbeck on "Fox and Friends" this morning.

Julie said that Lilly was browsing the Disney Channel’s website and noticed a question asking what kids were thankful for.

Lilly typed in her lovely answer - "God, my family, my church and my friends" - but when she tried to submit it, the message "Please be nice!" appeared in red letters.

After playing around with the words, they realized the message could be submitted after removing the word "God."

In a statement, Disney said, "Because so many people attempt to abuse the system and use the word "God" in conjunction with profanity, in an abundance of caution our system is forced to catch and prevent any use of the word on our websites."

Julie said it's understandable what Disney is trying to prevent, but a big, red message that tells a child it's not nice to be thankful for God is not the best way to handle the issue.

"I just don't want children to feel like there is something wrong or something they should be ashamed of in sharing their faith with their peers," she explained.

Luckily, Lilly was given an opportunity on "Fox and Friends" to share what she's thankful for, without any censorship: "I'm thankful for God and my family and all my friends, because He's the reason I have all this stuff."
