More on SpongeBob

|

We all had a good laugh last week, when Colorado Springs-based minister James Dobson declared a fatwa on SpongeBob SquarePants. But conservative Andrew Sullivan raises a telling point regarding Dobson:

What’s interesting to me is that what Dobson is objecting to is not gay sex or gay relationships or gay identity, or any legislative or judicial proposal. What he objects to is tolerance of gay people, or teaching children that gay people deserve respect. That’s SpongeBob’s crime! Revealing, no? Now, recall that this man is the most powerful social conservative in Bush’s Republican party.
