Wow, wow, wow. We’ve never seen Ellen DeGeneres worked up quite like this before. But there she was during her Wednesday monologue, saying what she thinks about a Christian author who accused her of promoting a gay agenda on her show.
The target of her epic smackdown was Larry Tomczak, a self-described “cultural commentator” who wrote a commentary a few days ago for the Christian Post called “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?”
“I don’t usually read anything about myself,” said DeGeneres. “Unless it’s about me being pregnant and then how else would I know? Got to find out. But I heard there was an article written about me and I would like to address it right now.”
She took issue with one of Tomczak’s sentences in particular: “Ellen DeGeneres celebrates her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”

“First of all, I’m not ‘married.’ I’m married. That’s all,” Ellen said.
And though she doesn’t really know how to celebrate lesbianism, she said, she give it a shot by pulling out some party poppers and saying, “Yay! I’m gay!”
“The only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another,” she said. “That is the message I’m sending out. I don’t have an agenda.”
Well, that and getting people to “wear Ellen underwear and only Ellen underwear,” she joked.
