Kevin Swanson can see through your cheery, animated facade, Disney.

The right-wing pastor said last week on his radio show that he isn’t fooled by the smash hit “Frozen,” suggesting that the film just might be part of a devious effort by Satan himself to turn little boys and girls gay.

Before he delved into the positively batty theory, Swanson made it clear that he’s no “tinfoil hat conspiratorialist.”

“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?” Swanson said before rattling off the evils of “Frozen,” which has drawn both critical acclaim and huge box revenue.

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.

It was par for the course for the virulently anti-gay pastor, who has previously blamed mass flooding on “decadent homosexual activity” and said that same-sex couples should die on their wedding day.
