Have you heard about Hollywood’s Gay Agenda? Larry Tomczak, best-selling Christian author has, and he’s warning you about the assault of gay programming in your home. Tomczak recently published an article for The Christian Post in which he pointed out the many different television programs on TV that have gay characters (which he considers a bad thing). According to Tomczak:
The indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in our country, classrooms and culture are increasing. All of us need to take note and take action to guard those we love.
To which I say…. huzzah! As much as I hate ignorant bigotry, I am overjoyed that the media is representing the gay community more, to the extent that religious extremists like Tomczak are saying “its not a trickle it’s a Tsunami!” We have them running and on the defensive. And they’re going to lose this battle – it’s just the truth. I will happily munch my popcorn and watch them run around like chickens clucking about the Apocalypse, while LGBT people are given more and more rights and more and more representation in this country and in our media.
Now, one of the shows he criticized was Ellen, which he claims “celebrates her [Ellen’s] lesbianism and “marriage” in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”
Seriously guys, did you know watching Ellen will make you gay?
Oh wait, it won’t. That’s just some paranoid nonsense.
Anyway, Ellen decided to respond to this man’s assertions, and she did so in true Ellen fashion: with humor, heart, and honesty.
She tells him flat out:
I’m not “married,” I’m married. That’s all… The only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another. That is the message that I’m sending out. I don’t have an agenda, I’m not here to brainwash anyone, but… 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.
Ellen, could we possible start loving you even more? Because I think I just did.
As much as people like Larry Tomczak believe they are doing the right thing and protecting the youth of America, they are incredibly hurtful people who use their religion to excuse their hateful messages. It’s not fair to the people they target, and it’s also not fair to the religion they are representing. Christianity is supposed to be about acceptance and love of your neighbors. All your neighbors. So while sometimes it is best to ignore a bully, other times it’s time to say enough is enough, and stop the spread of lies and hate. I’m glad Ellen spoke up and set the record straight. And I look forward to the time when she doesn’t have to.
