    Yeah I know, that's the worst part. It's like "family friendly", usually a code word for anti-gay.

    Ironic, isn't it? Especially when so many straight families have raised kids that tuned out to be gay.

    Not surprised JC Penney reacted this way. America loves Ellen and more harm would come by giving in to the demands of this group and their boycott than would keeping Ellen.

    These anti gay conservative extremists should look in their own backyard at all the divorces and broken families in their ranks before protesting rights for gays and other minority groups.

    BTW, why does this lousy excuse for an activist group call themselves "one million moms" when they only have like 31,000 members? lmao

    I adore Ellen DeGeneres. I love her brand of humor -- good, clean, non-offensive, self-deprecating at times, and always honest and relevant. The way she chose to address this JC Penney issue was SPOT ON. It would be hard not to Love Love LOVE her!!! You Go Ellen!!!!

    What a shocking thought that Bill O'Reilly may have imagined the gay debate tide has turned against him & FOX.

    Well probably not, just a momentary feint on his part. Something to watch in the future.

    Hey I would prefer to take what anyone says at face value instead of questioning motives. I say "Good for him". Period.
