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?

I am so over these so-called Christians who cherry-pick what they choose to demonize. Have they forgotten James 4:12, John 8:7, and Matt 7:1-5? What upsets me more is not so much their twisted interpretation of the Bible, but rather than their irrational hatred of gay people rather than direct their anger at a government that chose to make a sacred act into a profane and legal transaction. It was our nation that secularized marriage and now that it is in the legal realm, we should allow all access to it.

For heaven's sake, stop whining about freedom of speech, people. He has the right to voice his opinion and no one is denying that, but other people ALSO have the right to say he's a hateful bigot! Disagreeing with someone's opinion does not equal quashing their freedom of speech.

True. But trying to ruin someone's career because they dared to speak their unpopular opinion DOES equal squashing of freedom of speech.

He's entitled to his own opinions, but wow.

Hmmmm, well at least gays don't have to worry about birth control...therefore, at least they are not considered to be ''sluts''!

 Col. Korn - I don't know where you found those "facts" from but you are incorrect. My life has been dedicated to the study of different wild animals and no valid story of Dolphins killing for homosexual behaviour has ever been documented. 
What has been documented is the exact opposite of your statement that "homosexuality is against Nature". You would do well with a bit of research. Let me start you off:   Georgetown University professor Janet Mann has specifically theorised that homosexual behaviour, at least in dolphins, is an evolutionary advantage that minimizes intraspecies aggression, especially among males. 
Homosexual behaviour does occur in the animal kingdom outside humans, especially in social species, particularly in marine birds and mammals, monkeys, and the great apes. Homosexual behaviour has been observed among 1,500 species, and in 500 of those it is well documented.

To turn the approach on its head: No species has been found in which homosexual behaviour has not been shown to exist, with the exception of species that never have sex at all, such as sea urchins and aphis. Moreover, a part of the animal kingdom is hermaphroditic, truly bisexual. For them, homosexuality is not an issue.

Now perhaps you can learn to co-exist and minimise your aggression...

kirk cameron was asked how he felt about gay marriage and he gave his opinion. should he have lied about how he felt? it is his right as an american to feel how ever he wants concerning this subject.

America was founded on the principle of religious freedom. Now all of a sudden you want to persecute Cameron for his disapproval of homosexuality when it is in direct violation of his faith. By doing this you are violating his First Amendment right. Who is in the wrong here?

What i don't realize is if truth be told how you are now not really a lot more neatly-appreciated than you might be now. You're so intelligent. You already know thus considerably when it comes to this topic, produced me individually believe it from numerous various angles. Its like women and men are not fascinated except it is something to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. All the time care for it up!

This is especially important of the other kid
just doesn't seem to be "taking the hint" that your own child wants to be left alone. Children should pay attention to their parents for mainly two reasons: 1) it is for their own good (parents know what is best for their children), and 2) it is to return their parents love (children show respect and honor for their parents when they pay attention to their advice). He tells Radar - Online the fling started when he "hooked up" with Girardi in Florida due to her sick dog, Chloe.
