Via Big Media, aka MSNBC: Will Spongebob Make You Gay?

First it was the spate of the SpongeBob rob jobs from local Burger Kings. Now the little yellow guy who lives in a pineapple under the sea is at the center of a far grimmer controversy, again not of his own making. Two conservative Christian groups attacking the cartoon character for allegedly being part of, as one of them put it, a “pro-homosexual video.”

A man named Dr. James Dobson, founder of a conservative Christian group called “Focus on the Family” addressed members of Congress at a black tie dinner in Washington celebrating the president’s election victory this week.  He advised the group that SpongeBob had been included in a pro-homosexual video which was to be mailed to thousands of elementary schools to push a tolerance pledge by kids, including tolerance of differences of what Dr. Dobson called “sexual identity.” Dr. Dobson said most of the favorite cartoons of America’s kids were in on the plot, Barney and Jimmy Neutron included.
