Are You Kidding Me?

Dr. James Dobson now thinks Sponge Bob is trying to convert our youth to the gay lifestyle...no really he does...stop laughing he really does. "Now, Dr. Dobson said, SpongeBob's creators had enlisted him in a "pro-homosexual video," in which he appeared alongside children's television colleagues like Barney and Jimmy Neutron, among many others. The makers of the video, he said, planned to mail it to thousands of elementary schools to promote a "tolerance pledge" that includes tolerance for differences of "sexual identity."

Oh my! Our children should be "tolerant" of others? Why that wouldn't be very "Christian" of them would it? I suppose Dobson would prefer they beat the hell out of those different than them and in fact tell them they are going to hell. Yeah, that would be way more Christian.

Oh and in case you didn't know Dobson is out of his mind, "The video's creator, Nile Rodgers, who wrote the disco hit "We Are Family," said Mr. Dobson's objection stemmed from a misunderstanding. Mr. Rodgers said he founded the We Are Family Foundation after the Sept. 11 attacks to create a music video to teach children about multiculturalism. The video has appeared on television networks, and nothing in it or its accompanying materials refers to sexual identity. The pledge, borrowed from the Southern Poverty Law Center, is not mentioned on the video and is available only on the group's Web site.

Mr. Rodgers suggested that Dr. Dobson and the American Family Association, the conservative Christian group that first sounded the alarm, might have been confused because of an unrelated Web site belonging to another group called "We Are Family," which supports gay youth.

Why let the truth get in the way of fanaticism?
