Any “Ellen” segment that ends with the line, “Audience, look into my vortex and dance with me!” has to be good, right? Right.
Pastor Larry Tomczak wrote an op-ed for the Christian Post about the gay “assault” on American programming that’s brainwashing kids into thinking being gay is acceptable and blah, blah, blah, snooze, drool. Here’s what he wrote about Ellen DeGeneres:

Seemingly out of nowhere, a important victory for marriage equality arrived today as the Supreme Court rejected bids from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin to ban gay marriage, refusing to address cases in which their federal appeals courts decided that the Constitution affords same-sex couples the same marriage rights as straight couples. Basically, those five states took the issue of gay marriage tot he highest court in the land, after their own lower courts ruled that banning gay marriage was unconstitutional, and the Supreme Court was all “NOPE SORRY, NOT LISTENING.” While offering no explanation, this decision makes gay marriage effectively legal in 30 out of 50 states. It also, of course, allows SCOTUS to maintain that the issue of gay marriage is a states rights issue, and while I would seriously prefer they just stand up and make gay marriage as legal as straight marriage, across the board, I suppose when all they’ll allow is baby steps towards progress, baby steps is what we’ll have to take.

“So You Think You Can Dance” has long been one of the few truly inspiring, talent-filled, positive reality TV shows, but it’s not perfect. Up until last night’s episode, the show had never shown a dance routine focused on same-sex relationships, featuring same-sex dance partners. But man, while it took the show 11 years, it was worth the wait. Travis Wall (the runner-up in season two), himself a gay man, choreographed a moving routine about the fight for marriage equality, featuring two men and two women who first dance in pairs and then as a foursome. What an important moment for an already wonderful show. [Buzzfeed]
