This Week's

Get the Stupid Stick!

World Net Daily thinks that SpongeBob Squarepants is just too tolerant!

In an attempt to smear The We Are Family Foundation for producing a children's video which promotes respect for all people, World Net Daily accidentally unleashed their Hell Hounds upon We Are Family, a notorious fascist fundie wacko website.

WND published their original story on Jan. 6th.

Consequently, several big name fans of We Are Family, including Dr. James Dobson's Focus On The Family, have since snipped the lifeline to We Are Family.

WND reprinted the Spongebob story and slipped a micro mea culpa at the end of a paragraph.

Real Class act you've got going there, WND!

SpongeBob, 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 the American 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 its website that children and others are encouraged to sign, which includes sexual orientation. [Editor's note: This story previously linked to the website of a group that has the same name but no connection to the video. WND regrets the error.]

"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. LINK (Beware! Hate Site!)

After Newt Gingrich tried to chicken fry Big Bird, I hoped the wingnuts would leave other defenseless animated characters alone.

But, noooooooo.

Fluffy yellow bird costumes and cute yellow cartoon sponges are easy targets for wingnuts.


Both characters are yellow.

There used to be yellow triangles, too...

Lots of them went up in smoke.

Heavy, heavy sigh.
