RidiculistAnderson 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.” Continue reading

Recall, homosexual orientation is no more a “behavior” than is heterosexual attraction.  Both are orientations, innate attractions. Reparative therapy (Exodus-type programs that offer results that take away “unwanted sexual attractions” or allude to a gay-to-straight conversion) treats homosexuality as if it were a “behavior” akin to other life choices like drug and alcohol usage, adultery, cheating and lying.

You would expect that the elimination of bad behaviors would result in life benefits.  However, if you force a gay person to “not be gay,” loneliness, depression, isolation and shame can result.
