Christian Post contributor Larry Tomczak responded Thursday in an open letter to Ellen DeGeneres, after the comedian called him out on her daytime talk show for accusing her of furthering a “gay agenda.”

In Wednesday’s monologue on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Ms. DeGeneres addressed an op-ed written by Mr. Tomczak, in which he accused her of celebrating her lesbianism “in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls.”

Ms. DeGeneres, who is married to actress Portia de Rossi, explained that her only agenda “is to be more kind and compassionate with one another.”

“That is the message I’m sending out. I don’t have an agenda, I’m not here to brainwash anyone,” she added.

Mr. Tomczak responded Thursday in an open letter to Ms. DeGeneres, arguing that “a nation rises or falls on marriage.”

“If we dismantle this pillar of society, as it has existed for over 5000 years of Western civilization and redefine it to accommodate other arrangements such as yours (or those advocating for polyamorous, polygamous or other configurations) what will be the consequences for this sacred institution and the future of our nation?” he asked.

Mr. Tomczak then listed “just five of many reasons” why he believes gay marriage is morally wrong.

“It violates the clear and unambiguous moral teaching of the Scriptures, which serve as the basis for our Judeo Christian laws and foundations as a nation,” he wrote.

“It is contradictory to the self-evident truths of ‘Mother Nature’ or ‘Nature’s God’ (as our Founding Fathers expressed it) wherein men and women are designed and function differently, complement and complete each other, and through the wonder of marital union are able to procreate to perpetuate the human race,” he continued.

“It is contrary to the explicit teaching of every major world religion, which upholds the integrity of marriage and family,” Mr. Tomczak wrote. “It is an injustice and unequivocally harmful arrangement wherein our most precious entrustment, our children, are denied the love and nurture of a father and a mother who complement each other in a healthy family.

“It redefines and devalues the sacred institution of marriage exclusively between a man and a woman,” he argued, “opens the floodgates for other arrangements and legitimizes a lifestyle replete with dangerous, at-risk sexual behavior such as HIV/AIDS and over 30 STDs that are endangering lives, jeopardizing healthcare and impacting our economy.”

Mr. Tomczak’s concluded by thanking Ms. DeGeneres for “opening up this door of communication” and for demonstrating “kindness and compassion in this interchange.”
