Mormon Grandma Freaks Out About the Gay Agenda in Disney's 'Frozen'

Frozen

Frozen, Disney's latest CGI offering for families, has been met with critical and financial success, its song "Let It Go" has over 100 million views on YouTube, and has achieved a level of penetration into the collective cultural consciousness that the house of mouse hasn't seen in quite some time. Despite most viewers generally regarding the film somewhere between "Ok" and "Amazing", one Mormon grandmother took grave exception to the film and wrote on her website Well-Behaved Mormon Woman an excessively lengthy blog post about how Frozen is promoting the gay agenda.

Yes, really.

FrozenAmong the film's evidently many pro-gay subtexts are:

Elsa has a great power that she has been taught by her parents from the time she was a child, is not publicly acceptable and that she must fear its expression, at all cost, thus hide it from people, even her own sister who could be hurt by it - even killed. Shame is at the core of Elsa's feelings about her magical powers: same-sex attraction.

Even "Let It Go" doesn't escape condemnation:

The words to "Let it Go" are clearly not Christian-values friendly, by any stretch of the imagination, when understood and heard. This is not an innocent song, with a catchy tune. It is rebellious. It mocks moral absolutes. It is careless. It is unaccountable. It is anti-obedience. It is regardless. It is selfish. And if you still disagree, then by all means, feel free to show me how I've misinterpreted the lyrics.

Never mind that most of all Disney films use some form of rebellion as the driving force behind the story. However, it's all ok, because she's totally not anti-gay:

Let me be very clear about one thing, I am not anti-gay nor am I here to judge homosexuals not worthy of their rightful and respectful place among society. However, I draw the line at the idea of redefining traditional marriage to include homosexual relationships, as equal.

Obviously the film is telling the story of the outsider, a trope that films and books have used since time immemorial with the X-Men films being one of the more recent examples, and homosexuals happen to fit nicely in to. Somehow, though, Frozen telling that story is secretly gay indoctrination, as one poor father discovered when he realized that the movie totally completely turned his son homo.

Case in point, I took Will to see Frozen about a month ago. He loved it. He started singing all the songs like “Let It Go,” at the top of his lungs. I thought it was adorable — until WBMW peeled back the onion to reveal it as a gay anthem (It’s time to see what I can do / To test the limits and break through / No right, no wrong, no rules for me / I’m free). Might as well throw a headdress on him and make him sing YMCA!


5-Year-Old 'Good Luck Charlie' Star Targeted with Death Threats

Police are investigating a string of death threats sent to 5-year-old actress Mia Talerico, who plays the lead role in Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie. TMZ reports:

Mia TalericoAccording to police docs obtained by TMZ ... Mia Talerico began receiving threatening messages last month on her Instagram -- including one reading, "Die Mia, F**king Die in hell! Kill yourself, you deserve to die."

The suspect then sent a picture of Mia's head with a bloody fist covering it ... with this message, "Yes, kill you stupid bitch."

Mia's mother contacted Disney security ... LAPD's Threat Management Unit got involved ... and now cops are making a full court press to track down the suspect.

In an episode last month, Good Luck Charlie became the first Disney Channel show to feature an openly gay couple. It is still unknown, however, if the threats are linked in any way to that episode's airing. 


Hate Group Leader Tony Perkins Blasts Disney Channel for Featuring Same-Sex Couple: AUDIO

Like other anti-gay activists, Family Research Council leader Tony Perkins isn’t too happy with Disney for featuring its first same-sex couple on children’s programming. 

PerkinsSaid Perkins:

After a year of planning, Disney finally made good on its promise, using the show "Good Luck Charlie" to give Taylor two moms. A spokesman says the show "was developed under the [advice] of child development experts..." But if Disney thinks that'll fly with parents, they've spent too much time in Fantasyland. OneMillionMoms is flooding the channel with complaints. Like us, they know what the research says: which is that kids who are deprived of a mom or dad grow up with significantly more emotional and academic problems. So it's a little ironic that the show's called, "Good luck, Charlie." Without a dad, he'll need it. 

RightWingWatch notes for the record that it’s Charlie’s friend, not Charlie herself, who has the two moms. And Charlie is a girl.

But those are just silly facts, and we all know Perkins doesn’t get along with facts.

‘Good Luck Charlie’ Features Disney Channel’s First Gay Couple - VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 10.49.55 AM

You probably missed it, but the Disney Channel passed a historic milestone last night with the introduction of the first openly gay characters to ever appear on the channel. The characters, a lesbian couple, were a part of the newest episode of Good Luck Charlie, which is currently on its last season.

TV Guide reports on the episode’s synopsis:

Good luck charlieIn the storyline, parents Amy and Bob Duncan (Leigh-Allyn Baker and Eric Allan Kramer) set up a playdate for preschooler Charlie (Mia Talerico) and one of her new friends. When the kid arrives, the Duncans learn that Charlie's pal has two moms. That's fine, but the potential new friendship is put to the test as one mom chats with Amy, and the other is stuck listening to Bob's dull stories.

Check out a video of the characters' nonchalant introduction, AFTER THE JUMP...

Back in June, Disney Channel announced its plan to feature the network’s first gay characters, saying:

"This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors. Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness.

Unsurprisingly, American Family Association’s One Million Moms threw a fit about the company’s plans to “corrupt the children’s network with LGBT content.” The group launched an email campaign last year and warned that if Good Luck Charlie "goes through with introducing LGBT content, then the floodgates will be opened for all programs on the Disney Channel – a trend that will be almost impossible to stop.” 

One can only hope so!

Sadly, because the episode will be a part of Good Luck Charlie's final season, the characters are only expected to appear in this one episode. Reruns of the episode are expected however.

Interview: Jonathan Groff on 'Frozen' and HBO's 'Looking'

  Looking-hbo
Jonathan Groff stars in "Looking" on HBO.

BY NATHANIEL ROGERS 

One of the surest signs of progress in 2013: Jonathan Groff, an out gay actor, who has already conquered the stage ("Spring Awakening"), and a hit television gig ("Glee"), is moving up to leading roles ("Frozen" and "Looking"). No one is complaining about it or suggesting that he shouldn't be playing a romantic lead in a Disney blockbuster! Not that anyone could make a convincing case against this engaging actor, his stellar pipes and the sly spark in his eyes, if they tried.

In person, at the Waldorf Astoria, where we sat down to talk about his role in FROZEN, the new Disney animated musical (it plays like a fusion of The Snow Queen and Wicked), he was less the intimidating STAR type than the charismatic 'boy next door'. He gushed about the opportunity to sing as a Disney character even though he only gets one song. It's a memorable comic duet... with himself; he plays a lonely mountain man whose only companion is a reindeer and he provides both voices.

NR: How many voices did you try out for the reindeer?

JONATHAN GROFF: We did a bunch and sort of landed on that one. I loved that! That was the most fun I had in the booth. Because, you know, you normally do the scene and the reader reads the line and then you read the lines. But to do the whole scene as myself as Kristoff and then Kristoff as Sven was really trippy and fun.
