According to Crazy People, 'Frozen' Is an Evil Movie with a Pro-Gay and Beastiality Agenda

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | March 17, 2014 | Comments ()


Frozen_Elsa-01.jpg

According to Keith Swanson — Religious Right talk show host and Christian pastor — the Devil is working through Walt Disney to produce pro-homosexual movies and “do something really, really, really evil to five and six and seven year-olds in Christian families around America.”

You mean, more evil than getting “Let It Go” stuck in their heads for perpetuity?

Swanson, according to Right Wing Watch, has this to say on the subject of Frozen:

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.

Has Swanson actually seen the movie? Well, no. Of course not. But it has songs in it (gay!), and Elsa apparently has no interest in men (“lesbian”) therefore, it’s evil (gay!). Swanson has no evidence to support his claims, but it’s obvious, isn’t it? Elsa is also asked by her parents to hide her difference from others, or “conceal it, don’t feel it” (gay!) and the troll king at one point asked, “Born this way or cursed?” an obvious reference to homosexuality in the mind of a crazy person. Catholic film critic Steven D. Greydanus, in fact, argues that “Let It Go” is Elsa’s coming out song.

As for the beastiality claim? The “Fixer Upper Song” about hunter Kristoff’s relationship with Sven the reindeer contains the obvious beastality line, “His thing with the reindeer/That’s a little outside of nature’s laws!” (Deer sex!) Why didn’t we see that before? Now I understand my sudden urge to make mad, wild love with a caribou after leaving my Frozen screening. Damned subliminal messaging.

Pastor Swanson, for the record, also believes that one day homosexuals will rise up and burn Christians at the stake. I guess they’re just waiting for the numbers to add up, huh? A few hundred more screenings of Frozen and the gay community will finally hit the critical mass necessary to purge Christians and make shirtless Zac Efron their Sun God.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • loo shag brolley

    Every time someone brings up bestiality as some sort of scare tactic, I can't help but think, "He who smelt it, dealt it."

  • Strand

    No one thinks about gay sex more than these moral crusaders.

  • BlackRabbit

    Twelve year old me: "Greydanus". *Snerk*

  • stella

    Ron swanson would so mad that this guy stole his last name.

  • Dave Dorris

    Here's the thing. I saw the movie. I loved the movie, and my daughter loved it. And neither of us saw any of this. We're quite a liberal household, and we missed it. I guess looking back you could make the case that there's some sort of "gay message", but what "be who you are" movie couldn't be looked at that way? Plus, aren't the songwriters a heterosexual couple? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Eh. The movie could be an allegory for any type of "the world wants you to be one thing, and it doesn't fit." You can read that as selfish, or you can read that as being true to yourself.

    "Let It Go" really isn't that different in spirit from previous Idina Menzel power anthem "Defying Gravity" - "too long I've been afraid of losing love I guess I've lost - well, if that's love it comes at much too high a cost..."

  • Pentadactyl

    I like fluidity and people being able to apply it as they like. But it annoys me when they then proceed to judge the story or elements of it by that spin they decided to put on it.

    For instance, declaring Elsa and Anna's parents to be abusive because they forced Elsa to stay 'in the closet'. Um...being able to kill people with your ice powers is a bit different from being gay. It may not have been the right decision in hindsight. It may not even have been the right decision given the info they had. But you can't make direct comparisons between fictional world w/ magic and real life.

    It's the same thing that annoyed me with the Harry Potter & racism analogy. No, the point of racism is that races are fundamentally different. When you have one magical race and one non-magical weaker one, you're buying into that argument, not denouncing it.

  • logan

    I think you pronounced her name wrong.

  • Sarah Weissman

    Well, that's why "Over the Rainbow" became a gay anthem when there was nothing out addressing that specifically...

  • Jen Elliott

    Wow - I am so lucky I didn't know Frozen was
    gay propaganda before I caught my son singing & dancing 'Let it Go"
    in the isles of Ikea this weekend, to the delight of pretty much
    everyone. I could have nipped that joy in the bud and the world would
    have been a much better place.

  • Jen Elliott

    Oh, and my maiden name is Swanson... No relation whatsoever, ever, ever.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Little J watches a lot of Disney channel programs and there is a strange juxtaposition of emphatic inclusiveness in terms of family diversity versus the trope-entrenched stereotyping (immigrants are weird, unattractive woman are desperate, teenaged girls are backstabbers etc., dorks are smart losers etc.). This particular gentleman is misguided, but make no mistake, Disney is the Devil.

  • Some Guy

    How do your descriptions not apply to most other standard television tropes though?

    Can you honestly say it's just Disney that presents immigrants as weird or dorks as smart losers?

  • lets_brunch_out

    OMG! Thanks for that. I needed a good laugh.

  • Dumily

    On the plus side, this must mean that all poverty and injustice in the world have been solved. Because no man of God and follower of Jesus would waste his time writing hateful bullshit like this if there were still real problems to work on, right?

  • lets_brunch_out

    They love to talk and moralise about every goddamn thing but not so much walk the walk of Jesus. I guess like, who has time for that? And why this obsession with the gays, church goers?

  • Steven

    No obsession. Just tired gay activist pushing there agenda everywhere you turn.

  • Dumily

    Care to expand on that? Exactly how are gay activists pushing their agenda?

  • Steven

    For one the schools are indoctrinated the kids with homosexuality. What does a kindergarten or 1st grader need to know about a girl with 2 moms or dads. When I was in the school if my parents didn't want me to take part in a class like that I didn't have to be. Now with todays gay agenda parents doesn't have to know. Governor Christie is making it a law that someone can't see a counselor if they want to get rid of homosexual desires. It's disgusting how it's more excepted to have a sex change than for someone who wants to get rid of same sex desires. I guarantee you pretty soon they are going to try to ban homeschooling. They are going after the kids.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    "They are going after the kids"

    Are we still talking about the gays? Or did this suddenly shift into a conversation about the Catholic Church and the Boy Scouts?

  • Steven

    Gay agenda

  • Dumily

    Are you at any point going to address my question about how the gay agenda is directly impacting your life, or are you going to continue making generalized statements about how the gays are going after the kids? Because I feel like you're giving me the cold shoulder. What's with the shade, Steve?

  • Steven

    I answered every question that you asked yesterday. Sorry if you didn't approve of the answer. The only reason why I'm still making statements because people keep asking questions. Otherwise I would have been gone a long time ago.

  • Jezzer

    Except you never did answer the very relevant question of, "How is having the same rights as everyone else a 'special' right?"

  • Dumily

    Ok, we can be done. But for the record, you never gave an example of how the gay agenda was actually affecting you. You cited hypotheticals about what might be taught in the future, what a mayor decided to do about a parade, and how the organizations that are tasked to protect our physical and mental health decided that a dangerous form of therapy is dangerous. As far as I can tell, those things don't impact you. If you don't like gays or gay sex or whatever else you have a problem with, then fine. But gays and lesbians aren't actually harming you in anyway.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    You just wait until Obama divorces him and pairs him up with his new husband. Alex Jones tried to warn us, but YOU JUST WOULDN'T LISTEN!

  • Dumily

    He might have a complaint then. But I'll save my judgement until I've seen Steve's new husband. You don't get to bitch if he's hot.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    What's a gay agenda?

  • Alicia

    What does a kindergarten or 1st grader need to know about a girl with 2 moms or dads.

    Do you also object to your kids reading about families with different religious beliefs (or none at all)?

  • Steven

    If a Buddhist, Muslim, Mormom,etc tried to teach my child their religion I would have a problem with that especially for a child. I would also have a problem if Planned Parenthood came in the school and gave my child any kind of information.

  • Alicia

    Why? Are you afraid that if your children learn about multiple points of view they will reject your own ideas?

  • Steven

    Not at all. Some things need to be left to the parents. Let the teacher teach math,English,spelling and leave the sex and religion to me.

  • Al Borland's Beard

    "leave the sex and religion to me"

    Okay, but I think schools stopped teaching Steve Vai albums a long time ago.

  • Dumily

    1.) The first grader needs to know about a girl with 2 moms or dads because she could very possibly have a classmate with with 2 moms or dads.

    2.) There's no current law that I'm aware of that is attempting to outlaw homeschooling. Until there is one, speculating on the future is pointless.

    3.) Reparative therapy has been banned because the AMA and APA has determined that it's ineffective and often damaging. Alan Chambers, the former head of Exodus International acknowledged that despite years of reparative therapy and a 16 year marriage, he still had same sex attractions.

    4.) I still need to you explain how gay activists are pushing their agenda. In what ways do gays and lesbians expecting to be able to live their lives openly without harassment have an impact on your life?

  • sanity fair

    I downvoted you because I think you're either a troll or just ignorant. It's called "sensitivity," not "indoctrination." No one is trying to turn all children gay. And gay marriage is not about special rights. They want the same treatment as any heterosexual couple who love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together.

  • Steven

    Oh yeah. Thanks for reminding me. They are also intolerant. They resort to name calling if you disagree with them.

  • sanity fair

    I am not actually gay. Bi-curious, most definitely, but not gay. So when you say "they," you're not actually insulting me personally. :)

  • Mrs. Julien

    People who want civil rights are soooo annoying.

  • Steven

    Wanting civil rights is not the problem. Wanting special rights is the issue.

  • Mrs. Julien

    What special rights have they asked for?

  • Dumily

    Can you list the special rights?

  • Steven

    This past weekend the mayor of Boston said that he wasn't going to march in the St. Patrick's DAY PARADE because the LGBT couldn't march. The organizers of the parade said that they were welcome to march but they couldn't bring signs. They didn't want to turn a celebration into a demonstration. In other words different groups can march but no demonstrations. Now that includes the pro-gay,anti-gay, pro - choice, pro-life, gun control, etc.. But of course the gay activist was the only group that seemed to get offended and felt like they had the right to march over everyone else.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    But don't most groups marching the parade carry banners noting what group they are marching in? The police, or vets, or Order of Hibernian etc etc?

  • Steven

    Yeah I'm sure the parade organizers wanted to stay away from certain social issues. Not too many people will opposed cops or veterans marching.

  • Dumily

    But that does mean that the LGBT groups weren't asking for special rights. They were asking to be treated like the other groups in the parade. You simply believe they don't deserve to be treated like other groups.

  • Steven

    Again special rights like I was saying. The ones who deserved the special rights are veterans not the LGBT. You honestly think the LGBT was the only group that wasn't allowed to march. To clarify homosexual deserved to be treated with respect just like every other citizens. If it comes across like I hate homosexuals I apologize.

  • Dumily

    You're going to need to clarify. The group asked to be included in a parade in the same manner as other groups in the community. The parade organizers wouldn't allow them to. The mayor of the town opted not to march in the parade because he disagreed with the parade organizers decision. How does that negatively impact your life?

  • Dumily

    The mayor made a personal decision based on the laws of the state in which he lives. No one demanded that gay groups be included or attempted to shut down the parade.

    Again, how does that affect your life?

  • Miss Laaw-yuhr

    Are they special because you think they come with fairy dust? Because otherwise they are the same.

  • wonkeythemonkey

    The hidden messages are so obvious! Gay people want the freedom to be themselves. Therefore, any time a character in a movie wants freedom, they are secretly gay!

    William Wallace, I'm looking in your direction…

  • NateMan

    Oh, the gay acceptance subtext isn't even subtle. It's there clear as day. I just don't see that as a BAD thing.

    As far as bestiality (spelled wrong in your header, bud), well, who hasn't been drunk and bored at 2am and looked up some hot man-on-reindeer lovin'?

  • Bert_McGurt

    "Pastor Swanson, for the record, also believes that one day homosexuals will rise up and burn Christians at the stake. "

    For the last f*cking time, pastor, that's NOT what they mean when they talk about "smoking pole"!

  • NateMan

    Besides, only a newly minted homosexual would mess Christians up that badly. Everyone else knows you just sear Christians in a hot skillet and then move them to a 250 degree oven for about 5 hours.

  • Kenny G.

    Basting liberally...

  • loo shag brolley

    Mmmmmmm... sacrelicious.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    How can something this wrong feel SO right.

  • Dumily

    All of the upvotes.

  • God Of Bal-Sagoth

    You know, maybe it is an allegory for homosexuality. I haven't seen it, but based on what you wrote, that may well be true. And if it is true, then that's pretty fucking awesome.

  • NateMan

    That's absolutely what it is. Not just that, and maybe not totally deliberate on the writer's part, but Elsa's whole storyline is pretty much a fable on coming out of the closet.

    And the movie's excellent, dude. Highly recommend it. And it's out on Blu-Ray tomorrow!

  • general rhubarb

    But not here. Dammit.

  • /glances at headline

    I wonder what this person's religious and political affiliations could be?

    "Religious Right talk show host and Christian pastor"

    Well I NEVAH!!!

  • lowercase_ryan

    All in favor of just ignoring idiots like this?

  • Dave Dorris

    Nope. Out them as idiots every fucking chance we get. I WANT people who have seen and loved Frozen to then hear what this obsessed freak has to say about it, and them.

    It's like whittling their dogma and hatred down to a toothpick, which we can then discard.

  • lowercase_ryan

    if they actually wanted a discussion on the issue then sure, but I tend to think they just want attention. Leave a crying baby alone long enough and it will stop crying.

    Or die, holy shit I suck at analogies :/

  • Dave Dorris

    I don't care if they want discussion. I'm happy with public ridicule.

  • stella

    I feel the same way Elsa.

  • Tracer Bullet

    Yeah, well. I been fuckin' ungulates for YEARS and I ain't even see the movie. Explain that one, church boy!

  • Mrs. Julien

    The question is whether or not this movie precipitated a transition to the deer family from all those unsuspecting sheep and cows.

    I think we can all agree that the camel was ill-advised.

  • BlackRabbit

    Pfft, Cape Buffalo. Good providers and they will cuddle.

  • abell

    I've seen the same argument that Let It Go is a coming out song from the gay community. While I personally think that's reading too much into it, this guy is clearly not the only one seeing it. Also, I'm pretty sure the line about the reindeer was a bestiality joke, but, clearly just a joke. Of course the syllogism gay=evil is wrong, but, rather than crazy, this just looks like he has a stick up his butt.

    The screeds are unbecoming, Dustin.

  • Ozioma

    Me too. While 'Let It Go' is very uplifting in some places, ultimately it's about Elsa finding the freedom to be who she is...by further isolating herself from people in case she hurts them.

  • Slim

    With a three year-old who knows the lyrics to this song (which I often sing it with her), I am fairly aware that the message is not nearly as awesome as all the adorable munchkins who like belting it out. More the 'no right, no wrong, no rules for me, I'm free' part that I have a problem with. Disney's biggest crime here may be encouraging kids to be more self-oriented SOBs than they already are. That said, we love Frozen.
