Now They Are After SpongeBob SquarePants?
At least two Christian activist groups said the innocent and hugely popular cartoon character SpongeBob and his best mate Patrick Starfish are being exploited to promote the acceptance of homosexuality.
Influential U.S. radio evangelist James Dobson, among whose top political issues are opposition to same-sex marriage and abortion rights, said last week SpongeBob had been included in a "pro-homosexual video."
"Their inclusion of the reference to 'sexual identity' within their 'tolerance pledge' is not only unnecessary but it crosses a moral line," said Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family.
...And people wonder why so many of the religious right are considered dimwitted.
Honestly, is this all Dobson and his nutty-for-Jesus pals have to think about?
I called my reporter friend Brenda Starr, who hooked us up on her teleconference line to Peppermint Patty.
The three of us think we should get our gay friends Popeye and G.I. Joe to go see Dobson and kick his homophobic ass.
