Anderson Cooper Responds To Anti-Gay Evangelist Larry Tomczak’s Gay Agenda Claims

Anderson Cooper Responds To Anti-Gay Evangelist Larry Tomczak’s Gay Agenda Claims

Anderson Cooper did not tear Larry Tomczak to shreds. 🙁

The CNN anchorman minced few words when it came to a right-wing evangelist’s scathing Op-Ed which slammed him for “boasting” about his homosexuality.

Cooper addressed Larry Tomczak’s January 8 Christian Post Op-Ed titled, “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?” in a January 19 “Ridiculist” segment.

Saying he didn’t know what a “gay lifestyle” is, Cooper said he watched “I Love Lucy,” which is one of the “wholesome” television shows that Tomczak suggests parents let their children watch in lieu of “Modern Family,” “Glee” and other programs with promote a “gay agenda.”

“Those were the good old days when gay people could be arrested for going to a bar or fired from their jobs — which, actually, they still can in many states — and live life largely in the shadows,” Cooper observed. “Good times.”

Cooper then made a tongue-in-cheek suggestion to Tomczak, advising he watch the controversial TLC special, “My Husband’s Not Gay.”

“The point is, gay people are more visible today,” Cooper noted. “I’m not sure turning back the clock or the TV dial is the solution.”

In his Op-Ed, Tomczak, whose opposition to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community is well-established, blasted Cooper for “[boasting] openly on TV he’d rather ‘have sex’ with a man.”

Cooper’s remarks follow those of Ellen DeGeneres, who uncharacteristically responded to Tomczak’s claims in an instalment of her talk show last week. “The only way I’m trying to influence people is to be more kind and compassionate with one another,” DeGeneres said at the time.

    That “My husband’s not gay” sha…I haven’t watched it, but I’ve seen clips. It’s about real-life married couples,where the husbands (and their wives) say the man is not gay, but just finds men desirable enough to want to have sex with, right? I don’t even understand the logic in that…
    I’ve heard of a “straight” thug-type in lag, who says he just enjoys being fucked ALOT,but isn’t gay;he just likes his anus being drilled…and my reliable source tells me that this “straight thug” can scream like an excited banshee and can spread legs wider than…all those porn stars u ppl were mentioning the other day(I don’t know their names).
