I love america. It's green pastures, majestic forests, beautiful place with interesting and beautiful features. Smoky mountains, Rockies, the Mississippi river delta, Even some of our architecture and achievements.
I can not, however, say the same about the ugly face of fat, christian slobs and power-hungry meglomaniacs that use this awesome country as a fucking cat box. You know who you are.

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.

i'm a christian, and I support spongebob!
Same here - i cant stand it when a few over zealous christians ruin it for the rest of us by doing something like this.
The do the best job making our faith look like a total joke when in reality, they are using their faith to justify an extremist view [like radical muslims?].

Some people voice their opinions and are upset because they care about their country.
You know what? The America of today does, in fact, suck. The country is so divided by political, relgious, and socio-economic lines that it's ridiculous. As it stands now, this country is on its way to join the Roman Empire and ancient Egypt. This country is tearing itself apart from the inside out.
Blanco, one could also argue that the fact that we Americans have the right to hold our own political views, religeious views, economic views, etc is what makes our country great.
You are free to think and express your opinions withought fear of imprisonment or unjust persecution -> not many places on earth have that.
I agree with you that our country headed the way of the roman empire, and ancient egypt, but such is the way of all great human accomplishments (they dont last forever). Being imperfect beings, nothing we design will be perfect or last forever.

Damn... wait till the Christian fundamentalists catch a whiff of all the imported stuff us anime junkies watch. They'd want to ban all of it.
