I really loved Disney's Frozen, and I was particularly taken with how much it seems like a coming out parable to me. It's a story where Elsa has to learn to accept and embrace who she is and where the love and acceptance of her sister is the most important thing. I wrote a bit about this empowering, beautiful and moving message in my original review.
Well, I'm not the only person who saw it this way. It turns out right wing lunatic Christians have the same interpretation of Frozen that I have, except for them it's more sinister. For some of these idiots the movie is an attempt to Satan himself to indoctrinate their children into lesbianism. RIght wing talk show host Kevin Swanson and his co-host Steve Vaughn (not the dead guitar player) had this to say about the film and it's wicked intentions:
Swanson: 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?
Vaughn: I would make a movie.
Swanson: I would buy Disney. If I was the Devil, I would buy Disney in 1984, that’s what I would have done.
Vaughn: Then you would start making all these nice little movies that throw little things in there that make sin look enticing, in fact some of the worst of sins, make it look enticing or at least to start to indoctrinate slowly, turn the heat up on the frog in the pan.
Swanson: 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.
I was going to buy a copy of Frozen on Blu to show my niece when she's old enough, but I think now I'll buy a couple of copies. How do you get me to side with one of the biggest, most ominous corporate entertainment entities? By accusing them of being owned by Satan, of course. I always side with Satan.
It is funny how they're right. Frozen is trying to indoctrinate your kids... but it's trying to indoctrinate them into love and acceptance, which these Christians see as being very un-Christ like. You have to wonder who Satan actually bought - the people promoting understanding or the people promoting hate?
