Um... okay...

I have never seen an episode of Spongebob and I never intend to. He's about as much my icon as Barney the dinosaur is. ;)

From what I read they completely distorted the meaning of  some video that the sponge appeared in to reach that conclusion.

Well, I've heard that Teletubbies is a favorite among stoners over on the other side of the pond.   Something about the program appeals to you when you're baked.   :lol:

As for the wingnuts targeting Spongebob, I'm not exactly surprised.

Duh.  Everyone knows that Squidward is the gay character on Spongebob, especially given Spongebob's affection for Sandy Cheeks.

My Steelers are getting their butts whupped, so I decided to take a break from the game and distract myself online. I found this, which made me laugh--even as the Steelers suck:

I wish I had paid better attention to Hannity & Combs last week. Dr. Dobson was on there and he says he never attacked Spongebob. Both Hannity and Combs agreed with him after reading what he had really said. I just don't have specifics. Sorry, I was at the computer and only half heard part of it.

So, this must be why SpongeBob and Patrick cheer when David Hasselhoff introduces himself to them? :rolleyes:

In all seriousness, kids do not learn to become gay/lesbian, so the cartoon could at most, teach them tolerance. Isn't that just terrible.

Well, I did think that family was very important (and I still do), but after reading several threads in OT and seeing how people seem to feel about families vs single parents, I can see why we have the attitude in society we do.It seems like the youger generations now feel that children do better without a complete family.

I fear for our family structure now more than ever. :(

Actually, I think the best argument for gay marriage is that it puts the children who are being raised in gay families on the same legal footing as those raised in straight ones. And there are many children being raised by gay/lesbian parents, couples who simply want to make the same legal commitment to a stable relationship as do their straight counterparts.

It's amazing to me that people's desire to enter into the institution of marriage is perceived by folks like Dobson as a threat to marriage. Makes no sense.

As to single-parents vs couples, I think the best situation is for a child to have two, healthy parents--gay or straight--mainly because childrearing is a tough job. But if one of the parents is a jerk, the child and the other parent may be better off without him/her. Growing up with one of your parents being a self-centered, emotionally immature, abusive and/or controlling drain on the family is not necessarily preferrable to growing up with one, responsible and loving parent.
So it all kinda depends....
