Maddow's SpongeBob SquarePants Apology & Democracy in USA "Not so much" As GOP Passing Anti-democracy Bills To Suppress Voter's Rights & US Gov't Targeting Anti-war Activist Juan Cole

SpongeBob SquarePants & the Gay Agenda

Religious right alleges Spongebob Square Pants and his friend Patrick co-habit because they are in fact Gay. These critics of the show believe that Sponge Bob Square Pants is being used as a means to spread the Gay agenda.

Rick Perry Must Answer: Does He Think SpongeBob Is Gay?

Categories: Political Animals
Well, Rick Perry?
​As we noted earlier, Rick Perry is calling on the nation's governors to come to Houston to attend a big Christian rally at Reliant Stadium and spend a day fasting and praying.
"There is hope for America," Perry says. "It lies in heaven, and we will find it on our knees."
Kind like lost contact lenses, we guess.
Sponsoring the event is the American Family Association. The group is responsible for a whole lot of vicious anti-Muslim and anti-GLBT propaganda, but perhaps even more importantly, the AFA helped lead the charge that called SpongeBob SquarePants gay,
So Rick Perry must answer the question: Does he think SpongeBob is gay?
We expect this to be asked at every Capitol press conference until we get an answer.
Oh, and while doing that, anyone attending might ask Perry about the AFA official who has called for Muslims to be either converted or bombed (and he sounds like he'd prefer option B); there should be a nationwide U.S. ban on building mosques; and gays should not be allowed to hold public office.
Including, we guess, SpongeBob.

SpongeBob and Homosexuality

Sponge Bob, Barney promote 'gay' tolerance
61,000 schools to receive "We Are Family" video with lesson plan

In a new video to be distributed to 61,000 schools across the nation, homosexual activists are using popular children's TV characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Barney the dinosaur to surreptitiously indoctrinate young children into their lifestyle, a pro-family activist group charges.

SpongeBob SquarePants is one of the popular children's TV characters appearing in a new 'tolerance' video.
Based on the 1970s hit song "We Are Family," the video will be distributed to public and private elementary schools nationwide March 11, along with lesson plans for teachers, points out theAmerican Family Association.
The distribution, sponsored by FedEx, will coincide with the video's broadcast March 11 on Nickelodeon, PBS, and the Disney Channel in celebration of the proposed National We Are Family Day.
AFA researcher Ed Vitagliano sees the project as an "open door" to a secondary discussion of homosexuality, noting the the foundation has a "tolerance pledge" on it's website that children and others are encouraged to sign, which includes sexual orientation.
"While we want everyone to respect other people's beliefs, we do not consider it appropriate for children's television to be used in an effort to indoctrinate children to accept homosexuality," he said.
Vitagliano says the foundation is employing a bait-and-switch approach, with popular children's figures such as Arthur, Dora the Explorer, JoJo, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Big Bird and Bob the Builder.
The objective is to get children to the foundation's website "and there they're given the full pitch about homosexuality," he said.
Video producer Christopher Cerf called the video an "unprecedented event."
"For the first time characters from all of the important kids shows came together to appear in the same video," he said in a November news release. "The producers and performers from each show embraced the spirit and message of this project."
The We Are Family Foundation was founded by singer-songwriter Nile Rodgers, who wrote the hit song recorded in 1979 by Sister Sledge.
The video was financed by a grant from the Toni Mendez Shapiro estate.
"Cooperation and unity are the most important values we can teach children," Rodgers said. "We believe that this is the essential first step to loving thy neighbor."
The We Are Family Foundation says its partners in the production are the Anti-Defamation League, Crown Theatres, Disney Channel, FedEx, Nickelodeon, HIT Entertainment, Nile Rodgers/Sony Publishing/The Bernard Edwards Estate/Warner Chapel, Nelvana, PBS, Scholastic, Sesame Workshop, Toni Mendez Shapiro Estate, and WGBH-TV in Boston.
A Federal Express spokesman said the company is "proud" to provide shipping for the project.
"Promoting diversity is part of our corporate culture at FedEx," said William G. Margaritis, senior vice president, worldwide corporate communications.
Characters appearing in the video are from award-winning shows including "Arthur," "Barney," "Bear in the Big Blue House," "Between the Lions," "Blue's Clues, Bob the Builder," "The Book of Pooh," "Clifford the Big Red Dog," "Dora the Explorer," "Jimmy Neutron," "JoJo's Circus," "Kim Possible," "Lilo and Stitch: The Series," "Little Mermaid," "Madeline," "The Magic School Bus," "The Muppet Show," "The Proud Family," "Rugrats," "Sesame Street," "SpongeBob SquarePants," and "Zoom."
The video also features cameo appearances by entertainers Bill Cosby, Diana Ross and Whoopi Goldberg.
End of article

Webmaster's note: Interestingly, another pro-homosexual website has a very similar domain name to the We Are Family Foundation website, it's We Are Family.  According to its website, "We Are Family" has the primary purpose of "fighting homophobia." 
No doubt, many children will be ending up at sites like We Are Family.  Coincidence? You decide.
The top of the website's home page reads, "We Are Family is a voice of informed straight, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people who have chosen to love and support our relatives and friends by working to spread truth about homosexuality. Our focus is on young people because they generally feel so desperately alone."
This is indeed scary.  If any religious group tried to indoctrinate children with a massive brainwashing scheme such as this, the public would go crazy.  It's sad when a society has abandoned God to the extent that it starts brainwashing it's children, teaching that it's ok to violate God's Word by committing sin.  Homosexuality is wicked, an abomination unto the Lord God.  It is prohibited in the Bible.  It is NOT acceptable in any way.
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." -Leviticus 18:22

In her response to this Maddow was owned by six year olds on her factual errors.

Rachel Maddow called on erroneously misrepresenting relationship between Sponge Bob Square Pants and his starfish friend Patrick in which she mistakenly said they co-habited when in fact they live in separate homes.

See New York Times article on Gay agenda below.

Voter fraud case in Baltimore in Republican political machine used illegal robo calls to target mainly black voters and other voters who traditionally vote Democrat.

GOP/Republicans changing the rules of the game making it more difficult for American citizens to register to vote and to cast their ballots.

Meanwhile President George W. Bush & CIA accused of targeting anti-war activist Juan Cole for what Unamerican activities or giving aid & comfort to the enemy ala Jane Fonda during Vietnam war.
Maddow jumps in ...
Juan Cole insists that an investigation into the accusations leveled at the CIA and the Bush administration.

Dobson and Focus on The Family accuse Sponge Bob of spreading the Gay Agenda to six year olds. Yes Dobson is deadly serious.

Conservatives Pick Soft Target: A Cartoon Sponge By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK Published: January 20, 2005
WASHINGTON, Jan. 19 - On the heels of electoral victories barring same-sex marriage, some influential conservative Christian groups are turning their attention to a new target: the cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants.

"Does anybody here know SpongeBob?" Dr. James C. Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family, asked the guests Tuesday night at a black-tie dinner for members of Congress and political allies to celebrate the election results.

SpongeBob needed no introduction. In addition to his popularity among children, who watch his cartoon show, he has become a well-known camp figure among adult gay men, perhaps because he holds hands with his animated sidekick Patrick and likes to watch the imaginary television show "The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy."

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."

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.

"The fact that some people may be upset with each other peoples' lifestyles, that is O.K.," Mr. Rodgers said. "We are just talking about respect."

Mark Barondess, the foundation's lawyer, said the critics "need medication."

On Wednesday however, Paul Batura, assistant to Mr. Dobson at Focus on the Family, said the group stood by its accusation.

"We see the video as an insidious means by which the organization is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids," he said. "It is a classic bait and switch."

Families face many problems in today's world, including poverty, unemployment, access to health care, and various forms of abuse. James Dobson wants to make people aware of another problem: SpongeBob SquarePants. Following in the distinguished line of homophobes like Jerry Falwell, who accused the Teletubbies of promoting a gay agenda, Dobson claims that Sponge Bob, too, is pro-gay. He holds hands with his friend Patrick! He watches a TV show called The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy, obviously a show about cross-dressers!! Oh how devious are the promoters of the homosexual agenda and their allies, the communists, the liberals, and the secular humanists!!! It's a good thing Christianity has such compassionate, intelligent social commentators to deliver us from the wily advocates of evil like SpongeBob, Patrick, Squidward, Sandy, and Mr. Krabs.

The only problem with Dobson's analysis is that he hasn't gone far enough. Let's start with the star of the show, SpongeBob himself. Why was a sponge chosen for a lead role in this show? Although sponges are capable of sexual reproduction, they regularly reproduce asexually. It is clear, then, that the purveyors of the homosexual agenda chose SpongeBob to be their lead character because he is, in effect, bisexual. Another reason a sponge was chosen was that evolutionary biologists classify sponges as the most primitive of multicellular organisms (Metazoa), lacking a distinct body cavity (coelem) or even a mouth. Their choice smacks of an incipient pro-evolution, anti-creationism agenda. Then there's SpongeBob's behavior. In one episode he repeatedly rips his pants--on purpose!--exposing his underwear for all to see. In fact, many episodes show SpongeBob in his underwear, a clear violation of the decency regulations passed by the Federal Communications Commission in the wake of the Janet Jackson scandal. Finally, the pineapple that Sponge Bob inhabits is a transparent swipe at the pineapple growers who civilized the Hawaiian Islands and brought prosperity to a backwards, Polynesian people.

and check out commentary critical of Dobson's views on pop culture at The Straight by someone who grew up in Dobson's church Dr. James Dobson, I PIT thee! by Knorf Feb. 2005

"Why do I pit him? Because I've encountered his bullshit ideas about morality since I was a little kid (the church I grew up in showed Dobson movies) and the man won't be happy until this country is a totalitarian theocracy, where people are free only to be the kind of Christians he thinks we should all be. "

and so it goes,
