…at least according to pastor and right-wing talk show host Kevin Swanson, who claims that Disney’s animated musical Frozen is pushing a “progressive,” pro-gay, pro-bestiality agenda, and that “Frozen was exactly the kind of thing Satan himself might dream up to ruin society.”

Man, how many children are taken into these things and how many Christians are taking their kids off to see the movie Frozen, produced by an organization that is probably one of the most pro-homosexual organizations in the country? You wonder sometimes, I’m not a tinfoil hat conspiratorialist, but you wonder sometimes if maybe there’s something very evil happening here. If I was the Devil, what would I do to really foul up an entire social system and do something really, really, really evil to 5- and 6- and 7-year-olds in Christian families around America?…

Friends, this is evil, just evil. I wonder if people are thinking: “You know I think this cute little movie is going to indoctrinate my 5-year-old to be a lesbian or treat homosexuality or bestiality in a light sort of way.” I wonder if the average parent going to see Frozen is thinking that way. I wonder if they are just walking in and saying, “Yeah, let’s get my five-year-old and seven-year-old indoctrinated early.” You know they’re not, I think for the most part they’re oblivious. Maybe they do pick up on pieces of it but they just don’t get up and walk out.

Is Michael Medved going soft? The Hollywood Versus America author, who has long protested what he perceives to be an attack on traditional values by the entertainment industry, gave Frozen an enthusiastic three stars.

    I don’t recall a huge outcry after Beauty and the Beast was released.

      There’s a lot going on in the Wizard of Oz, too. In fact, I can’t watch it. It gives me nightmares.

        Good catch. The movie I’m immune to but the book and musical Wicked is a solid basis for a life philosophy. It has everything; bigotry, tolerance, religion, politics, relationships, family, and even a song about how life is easier if you’re shallow.

        • M D Reese May 9th, 2014 at 7:07 pm

          I’ve never heard of it–I’ll watch for it.
          The flying monkeys are the scariest for me.

          • Carla Akins May 9th, 2014 at 8:25 pm

            The book is the best, otherwise you have to attend a musical and pay way too much for the tickets (I’ve been so often it’s embarrassing) but it’s a quick read and unlike the musical not so “chick” geared. And you’d learn how those flying monkeys came to be.

            You too? We are anxiously waiting for Book of Mormon which is evidently heading our way in the future …

            I’m jealous. KC has previously had little to offer in the way of a venue but recently opened the Kauffman Center. So far it’s just been Tony Bennett or YoYo Ma types. My first “official nice” date with Jamie was for Phantom of the Opera and I was hooked.

            bookof mormon eh? with magic moroni finding a snake oil salesman from brooklyn in a forest upstate ny – woooo, and then the ten little indians get wiped out and they all live happily ever after on a sheet of salt.

        • BanditBasheert May 9th, 2014 at 10:51 pm

          Of all the plays we have seen, Wicked is the best- even better than Lion King, Cats .. Phantom.

        The ultimate chic flick: two women in a fight to the death over a pair of shoes.

        • M D Reese May 9th, 2014 at 7:05 pm

          You almost made me spew tea on my keyboard! You’re right–at the heart of it it was about some stupid, impractical, unhealthy SHOES.

    The paranoia – it burns.

    Marriage must be all about sex, rather than a loving relationship, according to fundamentalist doctrine. I thought about renting Frozen from the Redbox kiosk today, but the snowman’s face is suspiciously too corny for my taste. I rented Turbo instead. Turbo, the 220mph snail. Yeah! I’m a rebel challenging the Indianapolis 500 assumptions about going real fast around a circle track in fast, fast racing cars! Turbo!

      We have seen Frozen – it is adorable – it is a cartoon movie. My daughter is heavily involved with preschoolers (age 4-5) – and they are obsessed with Frozen. They have been known to break into the songs and have sung in front of the school as entertainment! They even sing the songs from the movie in the parking lot.
      These are little ones – they know nothing (and care nothing) about SEX. They believe in princesses and fairies and flowers and fun. They sing, they dance and they giggle. You couldn’t indoctrinate these babies if you tried – they have an attention span of about 15 minutes except if their imagination is captured in a fun movie.
      If you haven’t seen it, you must but watch for the snowman (who splits into a gazillion different ways) and the caribou. HILARIOUS!! It may look corny, but there is a ton in there for the parents too!

    • M D Reese May 9th, 2014 at 6:26 pm

      It isn’t even about sex–except for making babies.

  4. Dwendt44 May 9th, 2014 at 9:07 pm

    Disney is pro gay? WOW, I did not know that. I was under the impression that Disney World, etc. didn’t hire gays, didn’t allow same sex PDA’s etc…

    This Swansen guy has been saying wacky things like this for a long time and has not had much of an audience when I stumbled upon his podcast some years back. I’m curious as to why people are paying attention to him now. Maybe because of the advent of Right Wing Watch and the time it has taken to wade through all the right wing nut jobs who have discovered the internets and have learned just enough to operate a computer and recording equipment.

    I know of autistic female child that prior to Frozen had uttered scant words let alone communicate. She sings along to the theme song, an accomplishment that has brought tears to many among her family and their friends. Republicans and these extremist fascist fake christians are nothing but sick, bitter, hateful people who know nothing better than to find fault in anything to advance their agendas.

    ifI were the devil I would adopt the name kevin swanson and tell little kids and their parents a crock of lies about make believe angels and a pappa in the sky who mistreats them all but will like them when they are dead.

    • Aquaria May 11th, 2014 at 6:39 pm

      Or maybe not like most of them and burn them in fire forever and ever and ever, for no sane reason.
