"Frozen" has been charming critics and audiences all winter, but one conservative grandmother was less than taken by the Disney animated feature, which has grossed a reported $378.3 million domestically.

Kathryn Skaggs, author of the "A Well-Behaved Mormon Woman" blog, has penned a lengthy post blasting "Frozen" for what she described as the movie's "gay agenda to normalize homosexuality."

Exactly what about the smash film rankled Skaggs (who claims to have seen, and enjoyed, "Frozen" three times with her grandchildren) remains a mystery. Still, she points to the countless tribute and parody versions of the movie's Academy Award-nominated theme song, "Let It Go," and writes:

I could blatantly see that the homosexual agenda, to normalize the practice, was not simply an underlying message in the movie "Frozen," but is the actual story.

The process of normalizing homosexual behavior in society is going to require more than the liberal media saying it is so -- which they do all the time -- or activist judges legalizing same-sex marriage in one state after another. It's going to require the indoctrination of our children, in order to lead the their generation to the next, necessary, level of mainstream social acceptance.

Skaggs, who says she is not anti-gay but believes that "acting on same-sex attraction is contrary to God's will," then added:

I have no problem with those who find the homosexual messaging good, or important for society, from their perspective. However, I'm not okay that too many parents, who would not normally support the normalization of homosexual behavior, seem to be completely blind to its advocacy throughout a children's movie, and are in fact gushing over "Frozen."

I just don't believe that with full disclosure they would feel to continue. And yet, I also acknowledge the beauty, used in every facet of the movie, which has captivated, or rather frozen audiences, everywhere.

It isn't the first time that Disney has come under fire for what some perceive as the company's stance on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community. Last year, Walt Disney World's unofficial "Gay Days" tradition was slammed by One Million Moms, the conservative and notoriously anti-gay group best known for threatening to boycott JC Penney after the retail chain hired Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson.

The Florida Family Association has also reportedly condemned "Gay Days," vowing to fly two planes carrying "warning" banners over the Orlando-based resort for "promoting homosexuality to a captured audience" visiting the four theme parks.
