SpongeBob welcomed by the UCC
The President and General Minister of the United Church of Christ, Rev. John Thomas, has issued a statement of welcome to SpongeBob and all other cartoon characters who may have felt harsh rejection by other churches.
I would definitely welcome Clifford, the Big Red Dog. I love Clifford! ‘Course he wouldn’t fit *inside* my church…
I’m glad there are still people out there with a sense of humor.
(And I swear, even though I don’t like SpongeBob, it’s not because he’s gay.)
