Conservatives Outraged Over Ellen's HIV Envoy Gig

A conservative group said Hillary Clinton's announcement that Ellen DeGeneres was chosen as a special envoy for global HIV/AIDS awareness was a blatant example of the Obama Administration pushing a "homosexual agenda." Janet Crouse, a spokeswoman for Concerned Women of America, said that because DeGeneres is an out lesbian, and "obviously an activist on the issue of homosexual rights," that she will be biased only toward the gay community in her outreach work.

Crouse told One News Now that it's inappropriate for a gay person to be "out front and the face of the Obama administration in the whole fight against AIDS." She added that African Christian and Muslim nations may not welcome DeGeneres warmly.
