US right attacks SpongeBob video:
Focus on the Family and other groups say the video – a remake of the Sister Sledge hit, We Are Family – is a vehicle for pro-gay propaganda.
The video’s makers plan to mail it to US schools in the spring to promote tolerance and diversity.
They say the attack is based on a misunderstanding.
The video also features children’s favourites like Bob the Builder, along with characters from Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.
But James Dobson, founder of right-wing Christian group Focus on the Family, singled out SpongeBob at a black-tie dinner in Washington in the run-up to President Bush’s inauguration, the New York Times said.
SpongeBob – who appears on the children’s cable channel Nickelodeon – is seen as an icon for adult gay men in the US, apparently because he regularly holds hands with his sidekick Patrick.
When the hell did promoting tolerance and diversity become anti-Christian? It seems to me tolerance and diversity falls under the whole “love thy neighbor as thyself” deal.

This is definitely worth checking out:
‘I’m Having The Time Of My Life Out Here’:
SEATTLE – Are you ready for Star Wars: Episode Three? Don’t get excited just yet, the new movie doesn’t open until May.
But for one Seattle fan, it’s never too early, or too cold, to start the wait.
Jeff Twieden doesn’t care that it’s freezing outside. He’s camping out in front of the Cinerama Theater in downtown Seattle, waiting for Episode Three to open. It’s only 22 weeks away.
I saw nothing in Star Wars episodes I & II to make me even want to pay to see episode III in the theater, much less wait in front of a theater for 22 weeks.
Looks like the ass clowns running
G4TechTV G4tv have dropped all pretense of being a technology channel:
Charles Hirschhorn, Founder and CEO of the network, announced the channel’s official name as G4 – video game television – earlier today at the Television Critics Association (TCA) press tour. The name change and new network look and feel will take effect on February 15, 2005.
Looks like their scam to get on satellite providers and non-Comcast cable systems worked:
- Merge with established cable channel with original content.
- Destroy all content from established cable channel.
- Leave nothing but 24 hours of mindless crap.
Is there anyone out there actually watching G4 (or whatever the hell they’re calling themselves)?
