Ellen DeGeneres came up with the perfect response to a pastor who claimed that she has a “gay agenda” – she gave him exactly what he doesn’t want to see by “celebrating her lesbianism” on TV.
According to Us Weekly, Ellen DeGeneres recently used the opening monologue of her talk show to respond to a Christian Post article written by pastor Larry Tomczak. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Tomczak complained about Ellen’s sexual orientation in the op-ed.
“LGBTQ advocates are extremely deceptive, sophisticated and strategic in working to lead a generation over the cliff to destruction,” he wrote.
The op-ed bore a title just begging for a good ridiculing: “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?” Sadly, Ellen DeGeneres didn’t respond to Tomczak’s criticism by showing him what a real gay avalanche might look like. Instead she chose to go with a gag that referenced Larry’s claim that Ellen “celebrates her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.'”
“Larry, I don’t even know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism,” Ellen said in response to his criticism. However, DeGeneres quickly came up with a way to live up to Larry’s expectations.
“Well, I guess I do, it’s like that!” DeGeneres said as she popped a party popper. “I’m gay!”
Ellen DeGeneres also criticized the pastor for putting quotes around the word “married” in his article – she and Portia de Rossi are simply married. They’ve also been together for over a decade, and they look as happy as ever.
DeGeneres ended her monologue by letting Tomczak know what she’s really trying to accomplish on her talk show.
“Larry, 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.”

Ellen DeGeneres’ agenda also includes trying to make her viewers laugh, and she recently enlisted George and Amal Clooney to help her accomplish this goal. However, as Gossip Cop points out, Ellen isn’t actually sitting next to Amal at the Golden Globes in the video below — DeGeneres’ head was digitally inserted into the footage.
