Nadler Taken Aback by Revelations About SpongeBob’s Insidious Pro-Homosexual Agenda

Washington, DC, January 20, 2005
Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) today commended Dr. James Dobson and Focus on the Family for uncovering a plot by SpongeBob Squarepants, Barney, and other icons of childrens’ entertainment to pervert America’s youth.

“Thank goodness Dr. Dobson and his team are keeping an eye on these villains,” Congressman Nadler said.  “I would never have expected it: a schoolroom cartoon video celebrating tolerance is also a secret weapon in the war to turn our kids gay.  Shows how naive I am!”

The “We Are Family” video, which will be sent to more than 60,000 schools across America, features a full complement of popular children’s television and cinema stars, who celebrate diversity to the strains of the 1970s disco hit of the same name.  It may sound innocent, but Dobson and company discovered that on a website associated with the video’s producers, children are encouraged to take a tolerance pledge that demands acceptance of different “sexual identities.”

“We see the video as an insidious means by which the organization is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids,” said Dobson aide Paul Batura, as quoted in today’s New York Times.

“I couldn’t agree more,” Nadler said.  “We’ve seen this before with Tinky Winky, the allegedly gay Teletubby.  Simply put, kids’ cartoons are no longer safe for kids – at least if we want them to develop into bigoted, narrow-minded adults.  But I’ll let the schools make that decision.”
