Christian Newswire Says Ellen Being A Big Ol' Lesbian Ruined Idol!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayAmerican IdolEllen DeGeneresLGBT



Christian Newswire director Gary McCullough issued a press release today blaming the ratings decline of American Idol on Ellen DeGeneres being a judge! He says:

"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.

"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.'"

Puh-leez! American Idol has been on a ratings decline for years, but it's still one of the most successful shows on television! And we think Ellen made the show even better!

We'd love to hear what this guy would say if WE were on the judges' panel — bring it on, douchebag!

The ratings would go up FOR SURE — (hint! hint!)!!

    Lack of interesting and entertaining singers was the reason the ratings dropped! Who had a chance of following Adam anyway?!

  2. 2

    I agree, Ellen didn't help the ratings at all. But if Mario is a judge no would watch period. Hint Hint

  3. 3


  4. 4

    Not all Christian people are like this. Ignore the douche.

  5. 5

    he's probably secretly in the closet and is just hatin

  6. 6

    How the fuck is she promoting homosexuality? Is Randy promoting African American culture?Is Simon Cowell promoting Britain? What a fucking retard.

  7. 7

    I don't let my kids watch shows w/ openly gay people and have them pushed as if they are wholesome and main stream, which they are not! Perez you a discusting wad gay or not!!

  8. 8

    thats just crazy! who doesn't love Ellen!

  9. 9

    They wouldn't say anything because you will NEVER be a judge on American Idol, you desperate wannabe.

  10. 10

    WTF does the sexuality of a host have to do with ratings?

  11. 11

    First of all, no they wouldn't, because you are biased and have no particular talent in the music industry. Second, if it were a "gay" thing, then Adam Lambert wouldn't have been so successful in Idol. So really, Gary McCullough can take one up the ass…

  12. 12

    oh, please! AI's biggest fan base is gay guys!

  13. 13

    Good thing you don't let them watch butch, cause you know that shit's contagious and all.

  14. 14

    The fact that unabashedly pimped yourself again to be a host on the show completely nullified the rest of the post.

  15. 15

    That's LUDICROUS!

  16. 16

    Ellen did not ruin Idol because she is a Lesbian she was just plain boring and added nothing to the show. Her fans also see enough of her 5 days a week. Now if Perez was a judge the ratings would TANK!

  17. 17

    I can imagine they'll write a book about it if you ever get on!! Ellen sucked, and I like her–although when she started getting funny towards the end–then she was good.

  18. 18

    Ellen did make the show worse, lesbo or not. She just doesn't have the charisma that Paula Abdul had.

  19. J.Ann says – reply to this


    Ellen made the show better for sure! Though I think the contestants this year is rather blah..comparatively to Adam Lambert.

  20. 20

    First of all the guy who wrote that is a fucking idiot and second of all Ellen rules! Not all Christians are as close minded and ignorant as people like him. I consider myself a Christian and I love the gay community with all of my heart. I wish more people could disregard assholes who judge other people over such trivial things.

  21. 21

    That would mean you being on the show would absolutely kill it.

  22. 22

    ellen made it worse…but not because she's gay. it's because she's not funny and has no ability to judge music. the show's decline comes from the producers choosing the winners instead of america. and it will decline now because who gives a shit without simon? if the winners suck and there's no simon…i give it 2 more seasons, 3 tops… which i suppose is good, but could've been longer with simon.

  23. 23

    Wow, the stupidity is mind-boggling. So, Idol's biggest names (and moneymakers) - Gayken and Glambert - are gay. How does the Christian newswire account for that?

  24. 24

    I'm not gay. I'm even somewhat conservative. However, these religious groups need to shut the fuck up. What ever happened to the basic credo of "do unto others"? Isn't that the "Christian" way? What does the fucking bible have to do with American Idol anyway? Way to sit there and pass judgment, assholes. Find something more important to worry about.

  25. tasha says – reply to this


    Ellen didn't hurt the ratings at all. Lack of great singers hurt the ratings. If you were a judge though you can bet THAT would hurt the ratings and not because your a homosexual but because everyone HATES you. Your an ASSHOLE. Ellen is a sweetheart.

  26. 26

    Thats not a christian magazine. It's a hate mongering rag.
    People like that are not true christians.

  27. 27

    And how does that explain the astronomically huge ratings for her own show?

  28. 28

    STOP IT PEREZ. They will NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER hire you. Give it up fattie

  29. 29

    Well to be honest ellen was just boring I thought. She couldnt duplicate anything that paula did in the previous years. Plus, Kara isnt the answer cause she is just as boring. Plus, Randy and Simon are excellent judges but they can only do so much for the fans. What really needs to happen is to have judges with some energy with some musical background. I know perez wants to be the next judge on americal idol and I am kinda for it. He has energy and has somewhat of a musical background plus he loves to speak his mind. The american idol judges I want to see is randy, paula and perez. No more ellen and kara. I really cant stand those woman. I actually want to see perez on this show cause I think it would some funny shttttttttttttttt..

  30. 30

    In a sick kind of way, I concur with this Gary guy. I, too, am feeling a bit saturated with seeing all the big ole lesbians in the media. Waaaaaay too many of them in the spotlight all of a sudden.
    Anyway, Ellen looks like an aged Speidi in that snap !!

  31. 31

    That is SO homophobic!
    Being homosexual is a sexuality orientation just like being heterosexual…
    Family program are not sexually orientated anyway, whether it is hetero or homo so their point is totally NOT valid.

    Rating are down cos the show has been on for way too long and doesn't interest audiences as much as it used to.

  32. rayna says – reply to this


    Perez, you are delusional to think that ANY show would want your ugly, slow witted speech ass. You are Z-list, way below Kathy Griffen. Not everybody loves Ellen, BTW. She's ugly as sin and NOT funny.

  33. 33

    Ratings were down because she was not that entertaining, NOT because she is a big ole dyke ! Unfortunately, she really did not add that much to the show. That, and the show is gett'n tired….

  34. 34

    Re: nycyankeeguy – Agreed. It was NOT the Ellen of her daily show… boring !

  35. 35

    LOL @ people knocking Perez for being gay, but they come to his site!


  36. 36

    mario, follow me down into the cellar. i want you to see the beautiful workmanship on this wooden chest. yes, it is shaped just like a coffin. feel the satin lining…lay down in it, it will be so comfortable. i'm just going to close the lid down now. dont cry, it will only be dark for a week or two…

  37. 37

    I find that many "good" Christians are racist, intolerant, and ignorant. I have several gay friends, and I can't find anything wrong with them or their lifestyles. It's just sad that people label gays as perverts and other nonsense still. Most of the straight people that I know are worse than any gay person I've ever met. I loved Ellen on AI this season, and I think that that's one of the dumbest things I've read recently. Being gay has nothing to do with judging a singing contest, so this asshole can take his anti-gay agenda and shove it up his ass. I guess things must be slow over in Christianland.

  38. 38

    This does not make any sense to me because if promoting homosexuality was a factor in declining ratings…well Seacrest has been there since the beggining

  39. 39

    Who cares about someone's sexual preference? American Idol has been in the can for years now…REALLY. American Idol sucks by itself.

  40. 40

    American Idol has hurt Ellen's career more than she's hurt their ratings.

    It was a bad and greedy move (maybe on both their parts) to have Ellen join the panel.

    But the show is a dull, repetitive fiasco with a hack formula which simply can't produce an American Idol.

    It is why the only thing people really talk about is its judges panel, folks.

    And what I find a joke is how Tyra's "America's Next Top Model" gets lambasted for never discovering a true top model - when American Idol has produced only a string of so-so singers and had no greater success in discovering the next great anything either.

    If anything, American Idol has done more to RUIN American music and culture (and television) than anything else.

  41. 41

    Everyone loves Ellen! But Perez, you dilusional fool, no one likes you. Unlike Ellen, ratings might actually DECLINE based on you being a judge. People think you are obnoxious and totally ugly. Too ugly to be on TV two nights a week for five months! Give up the dream, Perez. No one truly cares about you.

  42. 42

    Why didn't these douche bags complain about Paula Abdul being divorced twice, Randy Jackson being divorced once, Paula Abdul fornicating with contestants like Corey Clark, Simon Cowell fornicating with various past girlfriends… loser people like these who open their big fat mouths when they shouldn't need to be struck dead by God Himself, also known as cafeteria Christians who pick and choose what they deem is a worse sin and what isn't in order to satisfy their own inconsistent moral agenda… EPIC FAIL!

  43. 43

    i can't stand ellen or christians…or american idol. oh well.

  44. 44

    No on wants to see you on television PEREZ. You know shit about music.. 'clearly' .You should be heard but not seen. You are so awkward when you're on camera.. but ya just keep trying…?

  45. 45

    The ratings would go down drastically further if Perez were on the show. Stop being desperate, it's somewhat embarrassing.

  46. 46

    well some people do have ass instead of month so…

  47. 47

    Im with PErez on this one! Dont u think blaming her sexuality 4 ruining idol is very Disrespectful!

  48. 48

    I don't really think that much about Ellen being gay. Now when she came out on her tv show it suddenly all became about her being gay, and stopped being about the comedy of the show. It sucked after that. Ellen would have been a bit better as a music judge if she had more experience, but now she is a producer. I guess everything is going to change once she gets some experience. How sad that some Christian Newswire is putting something like this out. They wonder why so many people are leaving churches in droves. Of course some of these way out there church types are still luring people in, but most of those people are half baked too.

  49. 49

    Ellen didn't ruin Idol…it's been in decline since the Frau's took over voting and the last three seasons, it's been the same drippy, "hot" white, "rocker" male.

    Fat white women control the voting on that show.

    And really…You as a judge? Based on what, your EXCELLENT NON-BIASED history of judging things before? Please, if the contestant wasn't a bleeding heart gay liberal, you would always tell them how awful they were. You are so transparent.

  50. 50

    Clearly they're right. There's no way the show could be declining simply because it's a terrible show, it must be that one of the judges has sex with women.

  51. 51

    Well, then fuck the Christian newswire.

    I"m SO curious what these same folks are going to do when they attempt to get into heaven, and God slams the gates.

  52. 52


  53. 53

    There's nothing to fear, but fear itself - and "so-called" christians . . .

  54. 54

    Take heart. Narrow minded, bigoted, hateful idiots like this are of numbered days. And what goes around really does come around. Stand back and wait for the show.

  55. 55

    Let it go Donkey Face - nobody wants you on Idol and it's not about being gay…it's about you being a loathing human being with no taste in anything except talking shiz about people! Cuban please!

  56. 56

    Re: cookiepuss71 – Hugs to you ! Like your comment.

  57. 57

    We need more of the REAL Christians - like some posters here - to speak up, speak out - and expose those phone christians . . .

  58. 58

    . . . and here's their email - let them know what you think.

  59. 59

    whoops - newsdesk@christiannewswire.com

  60. 60

    No dickhead, the show will go down the hill at a faster rate with you in it. And not because you are a homo, but because you are as irritating as a flea up a dog's ass… Get over trying to be a judge, is a no go in so many ways… you clown…

  61. 61

    Re: ShoeWhore – You are an idiot, just thought you should know.

  62. 62

    I'm a christian and i LOVE her.. i think it show is just running its corse.. its been on for 10 years. Her coming on then show made me watch it and i'm sure hundreds of other s who would have stopped watching it. I love her and everything she does. She has an amazing heart

  63. 63

    disgusting bigot.

  64. 64

    Shouldn't religions be teaching acceptance and love rather than hate. Personally I am an aethiest..and reading stuff like this just reconfirms my beleif that religion is just a tool used to control and manipulate weak scared people. I think any group/religion that puts people down for being who they are is disgusting. Its 2010 time for people to realize that everyone is different and it is our differences that make us special.

  65. 65

    While I don't agree with the homosexuality statement, I do agree that Idol was pretty awful this year. There are numerous things that aided in it's decline…namely that it's been on for almost 10 years now, Paula is gone, Simon is leaving, the 'talent' wasn't so talented and Ellen doesn't know shit about music. Being a self-proclaimed 'music lover' just isn't enough to qualify as a Idol judge. Sorry sweetie!

    And Perez, your shameless attempts at becoming the next idol judge are really beginning to appear desperate and rather pathetic. Can't you just keep blogging about worthless people and their worthless problems, and leave Idol alone? Just sayin'…

  66. @v@ says – reply to this


    That statement's just not quantifiable! It does, however, conveniently back up his bias. Scientifically, it's just a ridiculous statement, as a viable study's not been done. That's why these guys pull this kind of stuff out of their…. , because there's no real way to back it up.

  67. 67

    I think the next judge should be brooke sheilds or Bill O'Riley. i would sure watch. It's obvious Ellen didn't help the ratings. Perez, i think you are too one sided to be a judge. you are very narrow minded in your views. i think you would not be open for good talent, rather only a gay following. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but seriously the show needs someone who is not biased, and by all accounts, you are very biased. You are extremely very biggoted in many of your spins you put on things and you wouldn't relaly be looking for good talent but someone you would want to associate and mold into a mini you. i think you are better suited for ohter things.

  68. 68

    Uhm the contestans were LAME, that's why the ratings dropped.

  69. 69

    hmmm What judge is wholesome in the first place????

  70. 70

    Re: starfuckinghipster – I couldn't agree with you more.

  71. 71

    If we had to blame Ellen (I'd blame Kara, and Paula's departure as a one-two punch), it wouldn't be because she is a lesbian, it would be because she has no musical background and is boring as fuck.
    Hint Hint: like you Perez.

  72. 72

    If we dig through the garbage for article written by idiots..of course we are going to find trash like this. I say ignore this trash there's nothing good to be gleaned from a christian posting commentary on American Idol.

  73. 73

    Ugh. People like this give Christians a bad name. How does he explain the success of "Glee" or "Modern Family," with their openly gay characters? Whatever. I don't think that Ellen brought down the ratings, I think that the singers weren't as compelling as they were in past seasons, and America, with it's relatively short attention span may be ready to move on. And, yes, Paula brought her own brand of crazy that was just missing with the current batch of judges, not just Ellen.

  74. 74

    Ellen is the funniest woman on the planet. I come from a church, and while I'm sure we read from the same bible, and worship, the same God, our viewpoints are in No way the same. It is her business to be who she is. If she shares this with others, and they accept it, that's there business. If someone like American Idol, had denied her the position because of her sexual preference, that would be prejudice. God may have laid the foundation for which we must follow. Those who follow him, follow obeying the commandments and living in accordance. Those who don't, are no less loved. Ellen is who she is. Ratings have nothing to do with lesbianism, as there are many out there who agree with who she is, and what she believes in. People like this man, are what gives the churches a bad name.

  75. 75

    Oh and by the way. I'm Mormon. So for all of you, who assume the worst of us. Remember that we are all not gay bashers or haters. We have our way of looking at things, but a true christian, no matter from what church would never, should never, look at anyone and judge them. That's a sin in it's self.

  76. 76

    Addressed to the church at large:

    Shut up. There are so very many issues going on inside your own house that need to be dealt with. Stop trying to cover over all your sins with bull shit denials and looking the other way. What about all the sexual abuse in catholocism, torturing people that are filled with (in your minds) "evil spirits" that don't agree with your little ideals of what perfection is in the "pentacostal" and "baptist" regimes. What about all the money grubbing "gimme whores" in the church, i.e. crefflo dollar… Do you understand what perfection is? Until you can really understand it, SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!
    You are a mass blob of heretic, self-righteous, bigoted, lying hate-mongers who sin in the name of Jesus. Jesus does NOT back you on this bullshit. Shut the fuck up!!

    Re: kleeow – Amen! So happy to hear a fellow Christian speak the truth!

    Absolutely DISPiCABLE!

    WHo gives a shit about her sexuality>?
    She is Fantastic and to turn this into something its not is crazy!
    Ellen Please laugh at these morons!
    You are a riot and we should have had MORE of you!
    PS I am married with 3 kids
    MORONS that is who!!!!!!!!!!!!

  79. 79

    Idol is slipping because they're dragging it out way too long. and ellen is awesome but honestly, what does she know about music?

  80. 80

    you as a judge? ain't happening, donkeyface! with Simon gone this show is on its last legs. I give it another year, two tops.

  81. 81

    Maybe the show jumped the shark when people started tuning in for the judges and not the contestants.

  82. 82

    barf barf

  83. 83

    After having last season full of top notch talent and this season full of average at best contestants, people lost interest. Not because of the judges.

  84. 84

    uhh what about the fact that ellen's own tv talk show is a hit?

  85. 85

    Hahaha Mario you idiot, if you were on the panel, American Idol would get cancelled faster than you can eat the poo-poo. LIKE ICE CREAM YOU FAT TURD.

  86. 86

    I don't agree with homosexuality, but I like Ellen. I don't think the ratings drop had anything to do with her being a lesbian…it's not like she threw it in anyone's face.

  87. 87

    i love how you had to but a plug in to get you as a judge. give it up you arent going to be one. loser

  88. 88

    It was Ellen's lack of musical experience in the music Business that made her not a good fit. She just had no real idea what she was talking about most of the time. Also her short hair and being so skinny made her look old and un-cool…she tried too hard. And the talent was not that great this year! It had nothing to do with her being gay what-so-ever!

  89. 89

    Ha! Has he seen Ellen's own shows ratings?

  90. 90

    WTF who does this douchery bag think he is? Obviously some director i have never heard of before. How is Ellen being on Idol hurting the rateings? I think some one needs to dig his man thong out from between his racist buttcheeks and keep to his movie he is "die"recting. And i say "die" because the rating of his movie is gonna die fast.

    I think Idol should have a guest judge every week and that judge be gay or lesbian to just piss this guy off and show his that homosexuality is fun family entertainment!!!!!

  91. 91

    Ooops i menat magazine not movie. hahahaha.

  92. 92

    Ooops i ment magazine not movie. hahahaha.

  93. 93

    Re: h8terboi – Buddhism says nothing against homosexuality…and thats a major religion. The bible also says NOTHING about lesbians…so fucking get a grip, lots of American's aren't even religious and we are sick of dealing with you idiots

  94. mdw says – reply to this


    I agree that Ellen didn't help the ratings. Actually my daughter thought she was appalling with some of here comments. Um, I did too!

  95. 95

    Re: SnottyMomma5 – I agree with you. Also, the bible only says gay men are sinning, so technically Ellen is all good with God (if God was real, i mean)

  96. 96

    Yeah but they JUST offered it to BRET MICHAELS!!!!!!!! if HE WANTS it!!!!!!

  97. 97

    Re: HollywoodTown – Well said!!!

  98. Ammie says – reply to this


    What is wrong with these fricken people? Why do they think they can make anti-gay comments and get away with it. Yep, if I ever meet these freaks, I'm gonna kick 'em in the shins. It would be worth the jail time.

  99. 99

    Perez, ratings would go down if you were the new judge. You're such a pain in the ass, people would die of your voice.

  100. 100

    AI has been taking a nosedive for a while. The only thing that can be said about Ellen was that she wasn't able to save the sinking ship single-handed… Why isn't this idiot writer all over Paula saying that she promotes alcohol and/or drugs? Ellen isn't being an activist there, although this "good Christian" is being an attention whore. Big surprise.
