Crazy Christian Blames American Idol Ratings on Ellen's Sexuality

by at . Comments

American Idol experienced a decrease in ratings this season. New judge Ellen DeGeneres is a lesbian.

Clearly, says Gary McCullough, the director of the Christian Newswire, these two facts are related. In a press release today, he wrote:

I am confident that the producers of American Idol will... 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.

If one of the judges was an abortion activist, or a political right winger and continued to insert comments in line with their activism, the same criticism would be true, and the show would suffer.

What a great point. Ellen once joked on air about having loved a woman - that's the exact same thing as a pro-choice judge telling a contestant: "You really killed that song, the same way women across the country should be free to kill their unborn babies."

McCullough added: Network television producers may or may not stop promoting homosexuality; but for certain they will learn to keep homosexual activism separate from the cash-cow of "family entertainment."

There is of course the insane possibility that Hollywood will forsake ratings... and continue down the path of change. Perhaps next we will see the pro-pedophilia group NAMBLA use its influence in Hollywood to have Dancing with the Stars seat Roman Polanski as a judge.

Yes, he just compared homosexuality to pedophilia and statutory rape.

This genius makes unassailable arguments. There's no way season nine ratings were down because the contestants were boring, and the key demographic for Idol - a singing competition whose main, highly-rated season eight attraction was Adam Lambert - is clearly people that have a problem with gays.

What do you think? Did Ellen's sexuality contribute to the show's lackluster ratings?

What a complete moron ... rofl ... NAMBLA (a truly disgusting group) advocates sex with pre-teen boys ... Polanski has been investigated to sex with young girls ... Can't this pseudo-christian homophobe even get his sinners straight?

I found that many people I know who have been watching the show religiously for 7-9 seasons did not watch this season because of Ellen. However, I find that ridiculous. How many other shows have gays and lesbians on there? Whether or not they are being portrayed as gay or lesbian, they are still homosexual and are still on the show. My opinion (and that goes for just about everything including politics and religion) is that as long as they are not forcing me to be like them, I don't care what they do in their private life. I don't want to see a straight couple showing too much affection in public so I don't want to see a homosexual couple either. Ellen should be looked at as an entertainer not a lesbian. Look at Jane Lynch and what she has done for Glee. Nobody cares that she is a lesbian. It shouldn't matter but unfortunately to some it does.

I just finished reading The Mayor of Castro Street, the story of Harvey Milk, and as I thought about what happened in the 70s in San Fransisco, the same comparisons and the total ignorance about homosexuality, that though there's a long way to go, the strides made over the years have been monumental. Then I read such ass-inine (spelling intentional) verbal diarrhea & think that as long as these fools exist, there will always be a senseless battle to fight. At the same time, I think, "sucks to be you." I'd hate to be so full of ignorant hate and stupidity. That must be a craptastic life...

The reason for the drop in ratings is they found their idol(Adam Lambert). People know there isn't anything else out there like him, and it just gets boring after a while.

The reason why American Idol is sinking is because people are sick of karaoke singers dominating the currently worthless music industry. American Idol is no different than Star Search and that show lasted 12 seasons. That basically means that American Idol will be off the air (thank God) in about two seasons. PS - This Christian guy is the type of moron that still believes in Santa Claus and that we all were magically created.
