Ellen DeGeneres read the article Pastor Larry Tomczak penned about the “gay agenda” and her part in the phenomena, and decided to respond to it on her show.
Ellen Responds To Anti-Gay Pastor
In his article, Tomczak wrote, “Ellen DeGeneres celebrates her lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”
What did DeGeneres, who is wed to actress Portia De Rossi, have to say to that? “OK, let’s just break this down. First of all, I’m not ‘married,’ I’m married. That’s all. And, Larry, I don’t even know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism. I mean…Well, I guess I do..it’s like that! Yay! I’m gay!”
The talk show host added, “In the article, the pastor criticizes a lot of TV shows for promoting gay agendas. He says that Glee has over five characters. Modern Family had a gay wedding. Anderson Cooper boasts about his homosexuality. If you ask me, Larry is watching a lot of gay TV. His solution is for parents to encourage their kids to watch classic TV shows like Little House on the Prairie and I Love Lucy. It’s not like I Love Lucy is a great example for kids! She’s shoving all that chocolate in her mouth! That’s not good for kids.”
DeGeneres went on to admit that she does have an agenda – to spread some kindness and compassion, and to get more people to wear Ellen underwear.
“The only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message I’m sending out. I don’t have an agenda,” she said, before picking up a hypnotic, swirling “vortex” and telling the audience, “Listen to the sound of my voice. Attention youth of the world: I want you to live your lives being exactly who you are. Be true to yourself—the most important thing is to be true to yourself. The second most important thing is that you wear Ellen underwear and only Ellen underwear. And now, audience, look into my vortex and dance with me.”
