In a Christian Post Op-Ed published on Jan. 8, panic-driven “cultural commentator” Larry Tomczak exclaims, “The indoctrination and propaganda coming from those advocating a gay lifestyle in our country, classrooms and culture are increasing,” before adding, “All of us need to take note and take action to guard those we love.” The piece, hilariously titled Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?, goes on to cite shows like Modern Family, Glee and Dancing with the Stars as examples of how Hollywood has an agenda focused on “promoting homosexuality.” He also names Ellen DeGeneres, writing that she “celebrates her lesbianism and ‘marriage’ in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”
Today on her show, DeGeneres responded to Tomczak (pictured with his wife) stating, in part, “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.” Watch DeGeneres’ response below.
Tomczak seems like a pretty cool dude. He’s now the head of Larrry Tomczak Ministries, INC. — because in the Bible, Jesus says, “Go forth and turn my teachings into financial gain!” – and he’s written not one, but two books that outline the proper ways in which you should physically assault your child. The more recent one is titled The Little Handbook On Loving Correction (booooring!) but his 1982 tome is called God, The Rod, And Your Child’s Bod: The Art of Loving Correction for Christian Parents. I’m going to assume Tomczak is unaware the term “bod” is almost exclusively used within sexual discourse.
Further proving his Christian Fundamental cred Tomczak co-founded an organization called Sovereign Grace Ministries in the 1980s. In January of 2013, Tomczak was named in a lawsuit that alleged he and other Church leaders covered up sexual abuse within the denomination and at a school in Maryland. In addition, one of the alleged victims claims Tomczak physically abused her (sometimes with wooden or plastic sticks) as a child and that the abuse lasted for more than 20 years. Of course, Tomczak denied all the allegations.
