Rick Perry Must Answer: Does He Think SpongeBob Is Gay?

Well, Rick Perry?
As we noted earlier, Rick Perry is calling on the nation's governors to come to Houston to attend a big Christian rally at Reliant Stadium and spend a day fasting and praying.

"There is hope for America," Perry says. "It lies in heaven, and we will find it on our knees."

Kind like lost contact lenses, we guess.

Sponsoring the event is the American Family Association. The group is responsible for a whole lot of vicious anti-Muslim and anti-GLBT propaganda, but perhaps even more importantly, the AFA helped lead the charge that called SpongeBob SquarePants gay,

So Rick Perry must answer the question: Does he think SpongeBob is gay?

We expect this to be asked at every Capitol press conference until we get an answer.

Oh, and while doing that, anyone attending might ask Perry about the AFA official who has called for Muslims to be either converted or bombed (and he sounds like he'd prefer option B); there should be a nationwide U.S. ban on building mosques; and gays should not be allowed to hold public office.

Including, we guess, SpongeBob.

Cartoon characters are as endearing to adults as children. Many times we can relate to them. Most of the time we just love to laugh at their antics and misfortune.

in the past, Perry's kept his office through the immigrant vote.  it looks like he's changing his past strategy now, by courting the extreme "religious" vote.  if he's not already a Dominionist, it probably won't be long before he becomes one.  Bachmann, Pawlenty, Palin, and David Barton--all big names among the right--are Dominionists, and joinging may be the only way he can ensure his political future.

Slick Rick should be an expert on who is gay and who isn't.  Allegedly.

Well...maybe Gov. Perry should talk to teachers (that would be a first).  Spongebob is about the only cross cultural cartoon that all the groups enjoy watching....so teaching about "allusions" using references to Spongebob is about the only pop culture thing that works for everyone.  If he goes to hating on Spongebob, then he must not get out much.  And, American "Family" Association---sometimes a cigar is just a cigar...and Spongebob is just a sponge.

And it's not just the American Family Association that Perry is partnering with in this event! Other leadership is from Apostle Lou Engle's "The Call," which holds anti-gay and anti-abortion rallies in stadiums around the world including one in Uganda, where speakers promoted the "Kill the Gays" bill.  In 2008, Engle called for martyrs for the cause from a stage at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.  

Perry's event also includes leadership from the "International House of Prayer," or IHOP.  There are now IHOPs all over the country that draw young people for 24/7 prayer.  One of IHOP's projects is the Israel Mandate, a program for supporting Messianic ministries and for aggressive proselytizing of Jews in order to advance the end times.
