A religious right wing talk show has described Disney's hit animation Frozen as an evil plot to turn children gay.
Kevin Swanson and his co-host Steve Vaughn of Pastor and Generations Radio also said the film – which won two Oscars earlier this month – pushes a pro-gay, pro-bestiality agenda.
"I'm not a tinfoil hat conspiratorialist," lied Swanson. "But you wonder sometimes if maybe there's something very evil happening here. If I was the Devil, what would I do to really foul up an entire social system and do something really, really, really evil to 5 and 6 and 7-year-olds in Christian families around America?"
His co-host responded that he "would make a movie", before adding: "Then you would start making all these nice little movies that throw little things in there that make sin look enticing, in fact some of the worst of sins, make it look enticing or at least to start to indoctrinate slowly, turn the heat up on the frog in the pan."

Pointing out specific parts of the film, the pair said Frozen's anthemic award-winning song Let It Go could be interpreted as a coming out song and also cited the fact lead character Elsa never ends up with a man in the film as a sign that she's gay.
They also call the relationship between Kristoff and reindeer Sven "unnatural".
"Friends, this is evil, just evil," continued Swanson. "I wonder if people are thinking: 'You know I think this cute little movie is going to indoctrinate my five-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."
Have either of them seen the film? Well according to The Hollywood Reporter they have not, as if their point would be any less absurd if they had.
Frozen recently became the highest grossing Disney animation of all time as it passed the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office.
