SpongeBob Squarepants: TV star. Movie star. Loved by kids the world over as the lovable yellow creature who “lives in a pineapple under the sea.” Oh yea, and he’s also a puppet of the Radical Homosexual Agenda.

That’s according to gay-bashing blowhard James Dobson. The loathsome chairman of Focus on the Family gave a speech in Washington the other night in which he alleged SpongeBob had appeared in a “pro-homosexual video,” which is actually a “tolerance pledge” featuring such other characters as Jimmy Neutron and Barney. Even worse, Dobson's spokesman referred to the pledge as "an insidious means by which the organization is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids."

You'd think the above photo would be proof of Bob's heterosexuality, but perhaps not; guess this means he'll have to clear things up by marrying a "Baywatch" babe.

Almost as bad as the description of Bob in the Times story:

[SpongeBob] 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."
I’ve heard all the jokes about SpongeBob being gay, of course. But is he really a “a well-known camp figure among adult gay men”? I’d never heard that before, but if he is, maybe all those thefts of inflatable SpongeBobs from the roofs of Burger Kings weren’t by teenagers after all.

Besides- SpongeBob's not gay- he's black!

I wonder if Dobson and Fallwell think that Spongebob and that Tele-tubby have some sort of secret relationship taking place.
