CNN's Anderson Cooper Responds To Anti-Gay Pastor (Video)

| by Michael Allen

Pastor and author Larry Tomczak wrote an op-ed last week in the Christian Post lamenting the gay agenda, which he claimed included TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and CNN host Anderson Cooper.

According to, Cooper addressed Tomczak's article on his “Ridiculist” segment on Monday (video below).

“I’ve never actually been to the secret meeting where the gays plot their agenda, though I imagine the catering is quite amazing,” stated Cooper. “But thanks to someone named Larry Tomczak, my eyes have been opened.”

Cooper recalled that Tomczak complained about the pro-gay propaganda that was bombarding Americans via the airwaves, including Cooper's alleged boasting of his homosexuality.

Cooper also responded to Tomczak's advice that families watch "I Love Lucy" and "Leave It To Beaver" instead of pro-gay TV shows.

“Now, listen, I agree with Larry. I grew up watching 'I Love Lucy' and I’m as straight as they come,” joked Cooper. “As for the Beav, I never tuned into that, it just never sparked my interest for some reason. I don't know why. Anyway, those were the good old days when gay people could be arrested for going to a bar, fired from their jobs, which, actually, they still can in many states, and live life largely in the shadows. Good times.” notes that Cooper suggested that Tomczak watch the new TLC special "My Husband's Not Gay" to observe men who are married to women, but admit to their homosexual desires.
