Ellen DeGeneres is everyone’s favorite daytime host and while even she has confessed in the past that she does not read articles about herself, there was one that she did happen to lay her eyes on and was not happy with.
In her opening monologue on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” the host responded to an article written on The Christian Post by self-proclaimed “cultural commentaror” Larry Tomczak that stated that Ellen and Hollywood are out to promote a gay agenda.
“Ellen DeGeneres celebrate her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls,” read a piece of his article.
This promoted the 24-time Daytime Emmy Award winner to call out the pastor and give her thoughts on the matter, of course in a humorous way.
“Ok, let’s break this down. First of all I’m not “married,” I’m married!,” explained Ellen to her viewers correcting the writer with the use of air quotes. “That’s all. And, Larry, I don’t know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism. I mean…Well, I guess I do.” Prompting her to take out a confetti popper and burst it open and saying, “Like that! Yay! I’m gay!”
The 56 year-old continued commenting on the article and saying that the pastor criticizes many television shows for promoting gay agendas such as “Glee” which has five gay characters and “Modern Family” which had a gay wedding.
Her response: “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,” Ellen added. “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.”
But jokes aside she did take the time to clarify and explain that, “”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.”
“I’m Not here to brainwash anyone, but…” as she took out a spinning vortex. “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.”
And to us, that’s the perfect agenda.
