Be afraid, be very afraid

Its shit like this that makes me afraid for the world into which we are evolving; as Americans, as human beings and as world citizens.
Christian groups however have taken exception to the tolerance pledge on the foundation's Web site, which asks people to respect the sexual identity of others along with their abilities, beliefs, culture and race.
"Their inclusion of the reference to 'sexual identity" within their 'tolerance pledge' is not only unnecessary, but it crosses a moral line," James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, said in a statement released Thursday.

Emphasis mine. First of all, lets ignore the obvious insanity that people like this want to label cartoon characters with a sexual identity. Watch out! I'm assuming Tinky Winky has been spreading his homosexuality like the common cold!
But for a Christian person to take exception to tolerance and respect is abhorrent. This FOUNDATION (not Spongebob) is asking for tolerance and respect of all people. Not acceptance, not moral equivalency. I can't stress enough that what James Dobson is saying is so diametrically opposed to Christianity that he makes me ashamed that I'm a Christian and that someone might ascribe these beliefs to me. Christ and Christianity is about compassion and tolerance and love--these are the values that Christ taught.
The King will answer and say to them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.' Matthew 25:40
James it, learn it.
