A Christian radio host has claimed that Disney is attempting to indoctrinate children into homosexuality and bestiality through animated film Frozen.

According to Right Wing Watch, Kevin Swanson of the Disney film on his radio show: “You wonder sometimes, I’m not a tinfoil hat conspiratorialist, but you wonder sometimes if maybe there’s something very evil happening here.

“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.”

The pastor, who says that the Devil may have infiltrated Disney in the 80s, may have taken exception to the close friendship between Kristoff and his reindeer Sven in the film, as well as the portrayal of sauna owner Oaken.

Last month a Mormon blogger also attacked the film, which she said was trying to lull parents into “a frozen-state, which would then allow liberalism to indoctrinate children”.

The film has since passed $1bn (£600m) takings at the worldwide box office.
