Dobson Does it Again


Another children's tv character is under attack. And yes, it is from a religious authority figure. Dr. James Dobson has gone after Spongebob Squarepants. Not the character himeself, mind you. But the website. Why? Because it talks about tolerance. Included within the words are 'sexual identity'. Gee, can we say what those words might entail? Now, somewhere there is a law on the books called separation of church and state. Basically, it means government stays out of deciding religious matters. Techinically, it should also mean that religious leaders should stay out of politics. For example, my pastor always reminds his congregation that voting is a privilege in this country, so go vote. For the candidate you think best. No saying who to vote for, but a supporting of the concept. Nothing wrong. Doesn't Dobson have anything else to do? And on a video, kids tv characters sing "We Are Family". So what?
