Washington: Ellen DeGeneres has hit back against a Christian Post contributor, who alleged that gay celebrities like her are guilty of pushing a "gay agenda" on America's youth, with humor.
Pastor and author Larry Tomczak wrote in an article titled 'Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?' that the indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in the country, classrooms and culture are increasing, reports suggest.
He then went on to say in the article that DeGeneres celebrates her lesbianism and "marriage" in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.
DeGeneres, who wed actress Portia de Rossi in 2008, responded "First of all, let's just break this down, I'm not "married," I'm married. That's all," she said, mimicking quotation marks. "Larry, 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."
The 56-year-old comedian further poked fun at her supposed brainwashing abilities, by addressing the audience while holding a spinning vortex, adding that she wants youth of the world to live their lives being exactly who they are and asked them to be true to themselves.
