The Anti-Gay Agenda

Protests over SpongeBob, complaints over gay being shown on a PBS cartoon, books that even mention homosexuality being taken off library shelves in Mississippi. What’s going on? “If you are a recently re-elected president with a strong conservative Christian base, and some elements of that base are throwing hissy fits over a sponge and a bunny or what’s on a university library shelf, it takes unwanted attention away from larger, more politically challenging matters relating to same-sex marriage bans, or free-marketing Social Security, or strengthening the anti-abortion movement — a movement that, as President Bush vowed on Jan. 24, ‘will not fail.’ The culture wars aren’t won on the battlefield. They’re won by playing a good shell game.”
