Ellen Stands For Awesome

Um. For realz yo'? Do we live in the 18th century? I seriously can't even compose my thoughts because of the burning rage I feel in my heart.

So I see a post today on a friend of mine's wall. If this friend reads my blog, I hope she knows I love her. Anyway, she posted this picture with the caption, "Cover Girl just might get my business back after this! What a change from Ellen deGenerate - oops deGeneres. :)" So then after my heart rate went down I said, "It was Talias dream to meet Ellen. When Ellen had her on her show, she surprised Talia and made her an honorary Covergirl. She gave her this. Later Ellen asked her to be her official correspondent on the red carpet and she had it signed by a bunch of stars."

Then the friend said, "She might do great things but setting her up as a role model for this country is a dangerous precedent." 

Uh oh. I don't even know how to respond to that. I'm kind of in the process of once again freaking out. 

I feel like it's so hateful. I especially have a hard time when people who belong to my same religion condemn someone who is gay but openly praise others who are glutenous. What's the difference? It was actually someone I work with who brought that up. "What's the difference?" he said. 'The bible says both are wrong." So if you're gonna use the Bible or your religious whatever as an excuse, you better stick to it.  I honestly cannot even fathom why someone would NOT want Ellen to be a role model. 

She is certainly giving. She is passionate about it too. She also has confidence and isn't afraid to speak her mind. Good freaking gosh. What's wrong with that? So what that she's gay? It's none of my business! 

Here's my personal agenda: Let's not be hateful. Let's leave gay marriage alone. 

The religion I belong to does not condone hate. It also says we should love one another. That we should leave judgements to God. I don't care if someone is gay. Do you? Am I off my rocker? Tell me what you think.
