Ellen is one of the most wholesome comedians on television. Her comedy is never racy, raunchy, or vulgar in the ways that so many comedians are. She is an amazing role model for children, and a great example of how to be a kind, loving, and compassionate human being for all people.
Ellen’s awesome, and so was her response. She responded with humor, intelligence, kindness and class. That’s exactly how it should be done — no need for anger and negativity.
When a pastor accused Ellen DeGeneres of celebrating “her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls,” she just had to respond.
First, she corrected his unnecessary air quotes, and grammar snobs rejoiced.
Then, she explained how she tries to influence the people who watch her show. It was totally scandalous.
And she closed the bit by hypnotizing the “youth.” But her message is so great, I can’t imagine anyone complaining about being a little bit brainwashed by it:
Thanks, Ellen! You are far more the leader than this pastor.
