How homophobic do you have to be to have cartoon penguin gaydar?

Let's not forget the purple Teletubby and Spongebob SquarePants.

tommy, it seems that Xians are obsessed with sex and homosexuality that they see it everywhere. It is most likely from trying to repress their own sexual urges because some idiot pastor is telling them sex is a sin, homosexuality is a sin...which is ironic since their whole damned holy book is filled with sex, incest, pornography. They get really mad when you point that out to them. (Or they blow it off as "irrelevant".)

I have a recent example of this mindset...I sent an innocent and pretty clean joke with only sexual innuendo...nothing graphic, to my Baptist niece (along with several other friends and family members) and got an abrupt message back asking me to "not send her that sort of thing anymore"...

All other friends and family thought the joke was amusing and my niece CC'd all the people on the list her response to me! They were emailing me asking WTF? (She used to have a great sense of humor before finding her Baptist husband and jeebus.)

And you never know what is going to offend them. Some things are okay, then suddenly they are highly offended by the most simple things.

We know a person who was offended by Porky Pig because he has no pants on! It's a cartoon character for crying out loud! Baptists and evangelicals seem to be the ones with dirty minds!

I think if I get a religious card from my niece with a religious message and signed "in Him" like she usually does, I might just return it and tell her "please don't send me things like this" just like she did me and tell her it offends me since she knows how I feel but still sends it anyway. Ane they wonder why people are "intolerant" of them.

It ticks me off how superior these xians think they are to everyone else.

Just mail them a secular card and put a label on the envelope that reads "KICK CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS".

What's ironic here is that homophobes tend to not have a gaydar. It's like I read on another blog once, "you'd think that homophobes would develop a gaydar in order to hate more effectively, but they don't." I think fundies have their own ideas, which rarely match reality.

BTW, I don't think Spongebob Squarepants is gay, but I do get lesbian vibes from Sandy Squirrel.
