Ellen DeGeneres Fired After She Jumps the Shark for American Idol

Post to Twitter Post to LinkedIn

OPINION,  Gary McCullough, director of Christian Newswire submits the following:
When it comes to the business relationship between American Idol and Ellen DeGeneres, to the chagrin of Pansy Hilton and a multitude of homo-fascist bloggers, I am on an I-told-you-so roll.
In January, I wrote, “I am confident that the producers of American Idol will be shocked when their market share has cratered, and will in all honesty find a dozen other reasons for the drop in ratings. After all, what successful television producer could have a clue what wholesomeness is as long as they see promoting homosexuality as a virtue.”
In May, I wrote, “Here is my next prediction. There will be no left wing social activist as a judge for the tenth season of American Idol. Not only will DeGeneres be gone, she will not be replaced by anyone close to a Rosie O’Donnell wanna-be.”
The question now is; can American Idol be saved. I say no. Ellen DeGeneres skied over that bull-shark and the audience she drove away will never return. Idol may as well succumb to slobbering panders of Hilton and bring him on as a judge and nuke the fridge.
There is a moral to the story of this DeGeneres-Idol saga. There is a limit to what Christian viewers will tolerate, and I am using “Christian” in the broadest of definitions. The revenue generating ability of television programming that promotes homosexuality has its limits. If primetime network programming becomes indistinguishable from HBO and Showtime someone else will take ownership of the family-friendly entertainment market.
The encouragement I take from the firing of DeGeneres is that someone in Hollywood understands what I have been saying; that the promotion of homosexuality and the production of family entertainment do not mix. There is money to be made and there are cultural battles to be fought; if you try to do both you will lose twice. That has been my business advice.
Cultural battles have two sides, one of which is immoral. Choose to fight on the immoral side of a cultural battle and any victory you experience will only be temporary. That is my spiritual advice.

    First of all i am Catholic. Never will I change or waver from my religion. And I expect people to respect that. And as a Catholic I happen to LOVE Ellen Degeneres, I think she is hilarious, witty, clever, beautiful and extremely brave. She isnt scared to be who she is, and as unfourtunate as you may think it is, some people just love who they love. She helps people who are struggling, and rather than someone taking their own lives because they feel so horrible that they are different, her promoting that it is okay to be different and that homosexuality is NOT a disease and is not contagious is preventing that. They can relate to someone, and know that they are not alone. She is a wholesome person whether she likes men or women. And im sure her virtues are just fine! I believe that we should be who we feel we are, and there is nothing wrong with that. You need to be true to yourself. You may think what kind of Catholic person can possibly be ok with this, since after reading your post it sounds like you turn off the t.v as soon as a homosexual comes on it, well Mr. Gary, I do! God loves us all, whether she feels she loves women or men, God wants us all to be exactly who we are and if thats who she is well then so be it. As Im sure you would like people to respect your religion and beliefs respect hers!
