* And speaking of American homophobia, the 1,100-member Druid Hills Golf Club of Atlanta, Georgia, is resisting a court order to grant spousal benefits to members in same-sex partnerships, sparking a local battle over gay rights. Now Republican Representative Earl Ehrhart has sponsored a legislative bill to repeal Atlanta's anti-discrimination law. And that's not all. Six years ago Jerry Falwell denounced Teletubby Tinky Winky as gay propaganda for children. Today U.S. conservatives--particularly James Dobson and his Focus on the Family--are condemning Nickelodeons cartoon character SpongeBob as "an icon for adult gay men in the United States" and a film featuring the character as part of a "cunning attempt to promote homosexuality."
