From BBC: U.S. 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 also features children's favourites like Bob the Builder, along with characters from Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.

Immediate Queries:
-What is pro-gay propaganda?
-Who in the hell is Bob the Builder?
-Will Gonzo from the Muppet Show be in the video? He always seemed pretty gay.
-Will the Sesame Street characters be Ernie and Bert? Because they are not only gay, but at least 50% evil!

Also from the article:
But conservatives say it sees the video as a cunning attempt to promote homosexuality.

They point to the fact that the WAFF is linked to a pledge being promoted by some liberal groups which includes a recognition of tolerance of sexual identity.

"We see the video as an insidious means by which the organisation is manipulating and potentially brainwashing kids," Paul Batura, a spokesman for Focus on the Family, told the New York Times.
AHA! THERE is the pro-gay propaganda! Let's take a look:
(From the We Are Family Foundation site)
Tolerance is a personal decision that comes from a belief that every person is a treasure. I believe that America's diversity is its strength. I also recognize that ignorance, insensitivity and bigotry can turn that diversity into a source of prejudice and discrimination.

To help keep diversity a wellspring of strength and make America a better place for all, I pledge to have respect for people whose abilities, beliefs, culture, race, sexual identity or other characteristics are different from my own.
WOW! That's some pretty powerful propaganda! After reading that, I feel a strong urge to divorce my wife, take up pottery, and even start brushing my hair once in a while! I'd better stay away from SpongeBob Squarepants videos, lest the remaining vestiges of my ultra-masculine non-gayness break down!
