More Right-wing Christian Bullshit
Sorry for the cuss-word, but I'm sick of this "which tellytubby is gay?" garbage getting so much air-time and setting the boundaries of public debate in this country. Dobson is inflamed because
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."
What's so wrong with tolerance? Does Dobson want Laramie from sea to shining sea? Objecting to the sexuality of cartoon characters is so ridiculous that it should be funny, but as Maud Newton says "This would be far more hilarious if Dobson and company weren't so powerful, and so filled with fear and hatred."

Ah, how delightful organised religion... Love thy neighbor... so long as he looks like you, thinks like you, and loves a female woman of the opposite sex and alternate gender.
