Kirk Cameron Is Even More Self-Righteous and Bigoted Than We Thought (VIDEO)

Rant 123

kirk cameronColor me disgusted. I thought I lost all respect for Kirk Cameron back when the newly born-again sitcom star had a big moral hissy fit about his co-star Julie McCullough's past as a Playboy centerfold and got her fired from Growing Pains. But after the incredibly offensive, self-righteous comments Cameron made to Piers Morgan last night, I somehow lost even more respect for him. His respect account is overdrawn, let's put it that way.

Look, it's not like I was surprised to hear the former Mike Seaver say he doesn't support gay marriage. Not after the whole Playboy thing. But what he said about homosexuality in general was shockingly intolerant, even for him. Cameron told Morgan:

"I think that it's ... unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

Yeah. He really said that. Out loud and everything.

Honestly, there are so many things wrong with Cameron's statement I don't even know where to start. Like, I'm starting to wonder if maybe there was some sort of accident at some point, like a serious head trauma kind of thing, that made him go completely frickin' insane. Tell you the truth, I almost hope that's the case, because if he's not brain damaged, then there's no excuse.

The folks at GLAAD were predictably horrified by Cameron's words (they said he "sounds even more dated than his 1980's TV character," HA!) and plan on making sure the news/entertainment industries are made very aware of his homophobic views.

With any luck, their efforts will completely destroy the pathetic remains of Cameron's once-booming career.

After watching this clip, how do you feel about Kirk Cameron?

Oh please who cares what he thinks. He probably harbours secret homoerotic fantasies about a hunky neighbour or something anyway so whatever. Weirdo.

Everyones a bigot when they disagree with you and your agenda. This is not the Communist state yet, people are free to speak their mind no matter how hard you try to shut them up and call them names....I'm going to exercise my freedom and say "You Suck"

He's entitled to opinions

I think he is every bit as entitled to his opinion as you are. I think it is absolutely ridiculous that groups who shout to the rooftop that everyone should be "tolerant" of them show zero of it for anyone who even dares to think differently than they do.

I am totally against his thoughts and beliefs but he has the rights to his opinions and calling him names for it is Self-Righteous & bigoted. People are entitled to their opinions no matter how good bad right or wrong they are.

Just another example of how the Left can shout their ignorance from the roof top and tout it as fact, but let a conservative Christan voice his opinion (which, BTW he's entitled to) and all hell breaks loose.....

That's hardly shocking or THAT terrible. Alot of people feel that way. He's entitled to his opinons.

Oh please his career is gone -- just like his looks.

I hope GLAAD gets him though. He was lucky to even have been invited on the show because really he is D-List.

He can forget being invited on any show now -- except for racist, bigoted FOX News.

He has a right to say whatever the hell he wants, AND we have the right to say whatever we want in response. He thinks homosexuality is wrong, he can say so, but we reserve the right to tell him he just made himself look like a bigot in front of the nation. Homophobics, extremists, religious zealots have the right to express their opinions like anyone else -doesn't make them right. I can say the sky is green and that anyone who doesn't agree is destructive to the foundations of civilization, I may not be right, but with enough influence I'm sure to get some weak minded people to follow me.

He's being called a bigot because, well...he IS. You Bible-thumpers get me sick, talking about Jesus and Christian values...what about valuing other people's lives and letting gay people be respected. They're human too. Get off your high horses.
