Ellen DeGeneres' role as AIDS envoy is another example of the Obama administration promoting the “homosexual agenda,” Concerned Women for America (CWA) has warned.

Last week, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton named DeGeneres as a Special Envoy for Global AIDS Awareness.

The openly gay DeGeneres is the host of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She will use her celebrity to raise awareness about the global fight to end AIDS.

But Janice Crouse of CWA found the appointment problematic.

“She is openly lesbian and obviously is an activist on the issue of homosexual rights and has taken a very active role in pushing the homosexual agenda,” Crouse told OneNewsNow.com. “So for her to be the person who's out front and the face of the Obama administration in the whole fight against AIDS I think is inappropriate.”

“There are plenty of Christian nations in that region [sub-Saharan Africa], so she is not going to receive a very warm welcome there or be an appropriate person to be the face of the fight against AIDS.”

She added that the choice is “an effort to promote the homosexual agenda.”
