Poor Sponge Bob

  1. Sponge Bob is gay, the Smurffs are demonic, and the Road Runner is violent. what is with these people? Don't they have anything better to do with their time? People are starving, homeless, and war is raging, and their worried about Sponge Bob's sexual preference! Well, I'm just going to tell you what, when Sponge Bob calls my grandson ( 3 yrs. old) for a date ... Do they truly believe that even if he was that this is going to be a determining factor in anyone's sexual orientation?

    These people stand and scream I'm a Christian, well they must have a different bible than me. Can they not see they are teaching and spewing hate? Whether I agree with a way of life or not isn't the issue. Judge not lest ye be judged. Love thy neighbor.

    Spongebob isn't gay, he's just been co-opted to push the gay agenda in America (according to Dr. Dobson). Personally I could care less. I don't understand why our society sees the need to cause so much pain and suffering because some people are straight and some are gay.

    I'm referring to anyone who has ever said AIDS was God's punishment for being gay. I'm referring to anyone who has ever used the words "***" or "queer" or any number of slurs about homosexuals. I'm referring to people who feel the need to demonstrate with signs that say God Hates ****. I'm referring to the MANY non-religious who just think it's disgusting and feel the need to express that often, cause it isn't all about religion. I'm referring to the fact that we even have a specific word for assaults on homosexuals (gay-bashing) like it's some sort of sport for some. Look at the stats on suicide rates among teens and tell me that homophobia isn't causing suffering in our country.... It's completely out of control.

    Please see the "SpongeBob is Not Gay" thread . . .you are acting under some mistaken information.

    Also, you are complaining about being judgmental when you yourself are being judgmental.

    i totally agree with you.
    my point is that promoting tolerance and respect regardless of differences, should be age appropriate.

    Linking people who don't think homosexuality is something you are born with to people who do the above is not fair.

    Any more than it is right to link people who don't believe in abortion with those who bomb abortion clinics.

    Or to link those who think giant sequioas need to be protected with those who spike trees and kill or maim loggers.

    There will always be the psychos out there . . . on all sides. Please don't link me with the Fred Phelps of the world.

    Are we running duplicate threads?

    Sheesh! Whoever thought a cartoon charecter could cause such controversy on a board dedicated to nurses?

    Where did I link them Steph? You're reading something into my post that isn't there. I have no problems with people who disagree with homosexuality respectfully. I've made the same arguments you did when talking about muslims vs terrorists.

    I don't think promoting tolerance of anyone is an age issue. Tolerance to me is simply about respect and that should be taught from birth.

    No, just more of the same . . . . posting information that needs clarification.

    Which is why I posted a clarification. Which is why I did it with some misgivings. Because I knew it would be controversial.

    If we could just focus on the fact that SpongeBob is not gay and Dr. Dobson never said SpongeBob was gay, I think we would be ok.

    Right. Dobson didn't say Spongebob is gay. We got it. Also that he is a homophobic bigot who makes lots of us want to throw up.
