Disney’s animated film “Frozen” is the root of all evil according to pastor Kevin Swanson. As the Orlando Sentinel reports on March 11, the Right Wing Watch pastor accused the animated film is the work of the devil and tries to teach children to be gay.
How can a story of a young woman who tries to save her sister be so bad for children? On his radio talk show “Religious Right”, Swanson told co-host Steve Vaughn that Satan is using the movie as a way to “indoctrinate” children into the homosexual lifestyle.
“Man, how many children are taken into these things and how may 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 if maybe there’s something very evil happening here.”
Swanson has already expressed his dismay with Disney cutting funding to the Boy Scouts of America because of their anti-gay policy towards gay adults. The success of the movie just added fuel to the fire. Now the pastor seems to be over analyzing the story of the film by accusing the film of treating “homosexuality [and] bestiality in a light sort of way.”
“Frozen” has grossed over $1 billion worldwide and won two Oscars, including song of the year, “Let It Go” sung by Broadway actress/singer Adele Menzel. Like the movie, the song has been a hit for children. In this case, Pastor Kevin Swanson may have to just “let it go” and let the innocence of an animated film remain innocent.
