Kathryn Skaggs blogs under the title, “A Well-Behaved Mormon Woman” which her religion should take an exception to as she is one of those so homophobic that she sees what she calls “the gay agenda” in everything — including an animated Disney movie. Being concerned for the well-being of all of our children she has published her assessment of the movie Frozen on her blog warning parents not to allow their children to see it because it is designed to tell them that it is all right to be gay and to rebel against authority.
It is hard to understand where she finds these things in the movie which tells the tale of two princesses, sisters who begin their lives loving one another and nearly inseparable until Elsa the older sister discovers that she has the magical power to create and control ice and snow when she accidentally injures her little sister Anna with her powers.
After this she isolates herself avoiding all contact with others for fear of harming someone accidentally as she did when playing with Anna.
After their parents are lost at sea during a storm Elsa, as the first-born, is crowned the new queen and she begins to think that she may be able to come out of seclusion if she is careful. At the reception after the coronation Anna comes to her with the young prince she has met during the festivities to announce that it was love at first sight and ask for her blessing to marry him.
Realizing the mistake her sister is making Elsa refuses to give her blessing and in the emotional confrontation between the two loses control of her powers and plunges the kingdom into an eternal winter.
She flees before she can do anymore damage and becomes a recluse in the ice palace that she constructs for herself using her magic vowing never to return home.
Soon Anna goes in search of her sister and when she does find her with the help of Kristoff, a mountain man she meets on the way they again argue and Elsa strikes Anna in the chest. Shortly afterward Kristoff notices that her hair is turning white so they consult with the magical trolls who saved her as a child and learn that her heart has been frozen and only true love can thaw it and save her.
While searching for the prince that she thought to be her true love, they find that he never did care for her and had only been scheming to take over the kingdom. When he tries to kill Elsa she puts herself between them which makes her freeze solid and saves her sister.
Realizing she has lost the last bit of family she had left and still loving her sister very much, Elsa begins to grieve her loss. When she does this her true love for her sister thaws her and saves her.
This is the movie that Ms. Skaggs sees as promoting the gay agenda since, in her mind, Elsa’s fear of harming those she loves, and therefore isolating herself, is a metaphor for how gay people perceive themselves as being victimized. She writes:
[box type=”shadow”]”Now, this is a significant turn-around-message, because the gay movement consider themselves victims, enslaved by the judgments of religious pro-heterosexual marriage advocates who keep them from what they want and which they believe demonize the gay lifestyle. So, in essence, they consider themselves “frozen,” not able to live their lives out-loud, and freely, however they choose in mainstream society – no moral absolutes.”[/box]
She explains the metaphor of Elsa accidentally freezing her sister’s heart next.
[box type=”shadow”]”More distorted messaging, by making society, or those considered homophobic/bigots the cause of the homosexual’s “frozen” state. Because gays have no control over their same-sex preference, to expect moral behavior is unloving, cruel and ignorant, because what you’re asking is impossible.”[/box]
One of the most outrageous conclusions that she draws is that the power of Elsa’s love for her sister being able to save her is meant to show that homosexuality is actually the salvation of society in general.”
For me, this is probably one of the most disturbing messages of the movie, Frozen, and of course, the bottom line in the twisted marketing to normalize homosexual behavior and legitimize same-sex marriage in society: the opposition to it is the problem – you.”
She even sees the supposed gay agenda in Elsa’s theme song, “Let It Go” because it encourages rebellion and mocks morality and “Christian values.”
