There are a few celebrities who are so famous that they’re only referred to by their first name, and Ellen DeGeneres is one of them. The actress, comedian and talk show host revealed herself to be a lesbian in 1997 when she was a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show. The revelation only cemented her status as a national treasure.
Unfortunately, it seems some people take umbrage at who she is and object to her popularity. Evangelical pastor Larry Tomczak is one of them. He wrote an article for the Christian Post newspaper under the headline: “Are you aware of the avalanche of gay programming assaulting your home?” It’s not hard to guess what it was about.
