My buddy Mark over at Curious Character just posted this breaking news - the United Church of Christ has extended "an unequivocal welcome to SpongeBob."
Whew. For a minute there, I thought SpongeBob had seriously fallen out of good grace with Jeebus.
However, I'm still quite frustrated with some of those extreme Christians whom do not seem to 'practice what they preach,' pardon the pun. Whatever happened to Leviticus 19:18? You know, the whole "Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself" part. Apparently that only applies to other people.
The UCC's press release, along with a great photo, may be seen here. Other UCC/SpongeBob photos may be seen here.
