Kirk Cameron Blasted by GLAAD Over Gay Marriage Comments
TMZ: Kirk Cameron’s comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage are not sitting well with the folks at GLAAD … who think the former “Growing Pains” star “sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character.”
Cameron said during last night’s show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general … he said, “I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, tells TMZ he feels Cameron, a Born Again Christian, is “out of step with a vast majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.”
A GLAAD spokesman says they plan on monitoring Cameron’s media bookings and various acting gigs to ensure “the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views.”
I’m sick and tired of bleeding heart liberals calling themselves the tolerant ones when, in fact, they have no tolerance if you don’t agree with them. Why isn’t Kirk allowed to express his personal Christian beliefs without being condemned? Why must he get in line with the “vast majority of Americans”?
You want to be gay? Have at it. I don’t care what you do in the privacy of your home. But that doesn’t mean I, as a Christian, have to change my belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.
Can you imagine the backlash if Christians decided to monitor GLAAD’s activities to bring attention to their outrageous anti-Christian views?
