The pastor who attacked Ellen DeGeneres said Wednesday that he was “humbled” that the daytime talk host responded to his claims that she “celebrates her lesbianism” and books talent such as Taylor Swift to attract young girls.

Larry Tomczak made the allegations in a Christian Post column titled Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?

Ellen DeGeneres celebrates her lesbianism and 'marriage' in between appearances of guests like Taylor Swift to attract young girls,” Tomczak wrote.

Larry I don't even know what it means to celebrate my lesbianism,” DeGeneres said during her monologue.

“Well, I guess I do,” she confessed before firing off a party favor and screaming, “I'm gay!”

In his new column, Tomczak asks for “respect and civility” on the issue before claiming that DeGeneres' marriage and her support for marriage equality is harming society.

“So let me close by submitting to you with charity and clarity that marriage is and throughout history has always been the union of a man and a woman, regardless of what the courts say and regardless of how much you and Portia feel affection for each other,” he wrote. “Here are just five of many reasons why gay 'marriage' is morally wrong and cannot be called a righteous, authentic marital union.”

Tomczak calls marriage equality a “harmful arrangement wherein our most precious entrustment, our children, are denied the love and nature of a father and a mother who complement each other in a healthy family” that “legitimizes a lifestyle replete with dangerous, at risk sexual behavior such as HIV/AIDS and over 30 STDs that are endangering lives, jeopardizing healthcare and impacting our economy.”
