Quoting Quiverfull: “Let It Go” Promotes Rebellion?

Quoting

by Alli from her blog Awed Body - Why We Iced 'Frozen'Editor's note: We've looked at Disney's 'Frozen' before and heard all the reasons why many Christians think it's a bad movie for kids, but this is a different argument that the usual fundy 'Lesbianism promotion' screed. Perfect example of a peculiar type of fear thinking prevalent in the Quiverfull movement and in Evangelical Christianity - A demon under every bush, on every byway and in every freezer. Thinking this way creates enormous amounts of fear over things that have nothing to do with anything 'evil' or 'demonic', just another way to make believers controlled fearful weaklings. Another version of the same sort of thinking pe … [Read more...]

by Ellen cross posted from her blog When Church HurtsHas anyone else seen the parallels between Elsa and their own experience with spiritual abuse?I first saw the movie just days after being tossed out of our church and I sat there in tears and in awe as I watched Elsa make the “mistake” of hurting her sister while she was using her incredible gift to create joy and delight.She then is shut up, not allowed to use her gift any longer and she is told she cannot tell anyone what is happening to her. … [Read more...]

News: Is ‘Sleeping Beauty’ a Tale of Female Submission?

Angelina Jolie as 'Maleficent' in the film of the same name.

from Buzz Feed's Ariane Lange - How Maleficent Became The Mistress of all Evil in Just 600 Years But perhaps the explanation for Maleficent’s cruelty has been in the centuries of patriarchal history all along.In Disney’s 1959 version and its source material, Maleficent curses a baby princess to seek revenge for a real or perceived insult. Despite being harsh, this villain is, remarkably, the only female character who is consistently pursuing her own agenda in every version of these stories. … [Read more...]

Quoting Quiverfull: That ‘Thing’ For Reindeers?

sven

by Kevin Swanson from Generations With Vision - Discernment and Disney's "Frozen"(Editors note: Although we have covered "Frozen" and all the messages Swanson sees in the film before this is the one where he sees bestiality...out of the abundance of the heart.. well. you know..) I have taken a great deal of criticism for my criticism of the Disney movie, Frozen.  While the heavily-adapted Hans Christian Andersen story may have some merit, let me say it is possible to ruin a film by a single scene and a single line. … [Read more...]

The World is “Dark, Selfish, and Cruel.”

Tangled

by Lana Hope cross posted from her blog Wide Open GroundI watch Tangled on TV at McDonalds this afternoon. I was supposed to be reading Paul Ricoeur (I had it on the table), but this is the time in the semester when I already have term papers semi-planned out, when our grad seminars are almost finished (they finish April 2nd), and when one more book is just not important enough to study with detail. (In case any professors see this, I am reading the book; but my brain is on overload, and I’m not going through and making 50 pages of notes on it like I normally do.) … [Read more...]

“Frozen”: True Love Doesn’t See Agendas Behind Every Bush

Olaf

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog True Love Doesn't RapeYou have to see this before I start talking about "Frozen". Of the many wonderful versions of the song 'Let It Go' from "Frozen" I think this one personally tops them all. But then again I love classical music so blending the song with Vivaldi's "Winter" makes sense to me. … [Read more...]

by Ladies Against Feminism - Family Economics: Why I Hated College Everyone seems to have a college degree, but no one seems to use it. We graduate from college ramping up scores of allegedly useful facts and critical thinking skills that ultimately teach us only how to do what we probably could have done already. … [Read more...]
