Kirk Cameron on Homosexuality: Unnatural, Detrimental and Destructive to Society!

by at . Comments

Kirk Cameron's recent comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage and homosexuality in general - he's not a fan, to put it mildly - are causing quite a stir.

Cameron, a born-again Christian, said on Friday'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."

Piers then noted that if one of his sons told him he was gay, he'd say it's great as long as he was happy, and asked Kirk how he would treat such a situation.

Cameron responded that he'd talk to them about the "issues" we "wrestle through" in our lives and encourage them not to act on everything they feel.

He also criticized Piers for trying to "define" morality. Pot, meet kettle?

Herndon Graddick, Sr. Director of Programs at GLAAD, says Cameron, a Born-Again Christian, has views more dated than his Growing Pains character.

He calls Kirk "out of step with a vast majority of American, particularly people of faith who believe their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character, not condemned because of their sexual orientation."

GLAAD plans on monitoring Cameron's media bookings to ensure "the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views."

Cameron has also taken on Stephen Hawking and Darwin in recent years. Spoiler alert: He doesn't subscribe to those guys' views either.

Oh my oh my, I must of missed where I asked for pity again! I'm going to let yall keep thinking were one person, it's quite funny. And see, I say something about how you keep commenting and you say you can comment anything you want, just as I can....EXACTLY! That had made every one of your comments pointless and dismissive.

I agree things have gotten way off topic. It wasn't my intent for things to go this far. We're just taking shots at one another which is counter productive! So bygones. Samantha

I have my own opinion on homosexuality. It's mine and I choose not to go into it, however, it troubles me when others try to force their views on others whether they be pro or anti. I've seen this on both sides on this site just reading through the comments. I don't like either view pushed on me. I have my own and I'm satisfied with it. I think some of these remarks have been over the top here.

@Belinda If it'll make you feel any better--this type of toadie goal tending on a blog site happens on a lot of them. For some folks it's a hobby! You're right though. They won't lay off. When you commit to "agree to disagree" that means you are dropping it. Period. Point. Blank. You can see this person doesn't mean it or they wouldn't have written all this subsequent commentary.

I support the comments of Kirk Cameron. For those who disagree, so let them. We of the Christian faith have a right to express our views. It is not easy for a celebrity to go against the tide of Hollywood, but kudos to Kirk for sticking his neck out for what he believes.

@Ryan Look I appreciate your support, however, these two...or is it ONE idiot won't quit. No matter what. They feed on this foolishness. I have a friend & her hubby who was on this site fairly recently. I was told how certain folks on here behave. I had to get on and just see for myself..the friend wasn't exaggerating either!

@Cheeky and Courtneyj6 You two once again prove the trolls are out in fine form here! You're both smarta**es thinkin' folks will be dumb enough to think you deserve pity. And how do we know you are not "one" and just put up stupid dialogue to make it sounds you're separate. I mean there's no way you can prove it so why should we believe it! I can comment on anything or "body" I choose. Just like you do. You're always lookin' to pick at people you don't like. That's obvious. You keep sliding down the credibility scale moment by moment.

Hi Courtney. Corey is taking his SAT's, I'm hoping he does well. How is the move to Texas going? I've been busy at work and was shocked to see all of these comments! I haven't said a word in 2 days. Oh well, it keeps them off someone else's back.

Yeaup, It's only been me talking to you not Cheeky..that is what you have been calling attacking right? When someone attacks and talks about someone who never said anything to you right? I didn't comment for a while, then commented, then it was another day or so before I did again..hmm why? Maybe because I have a kid,i'm packing my home, and i'm working..your right, raising your child and doing something productive like work is not worthwhile! If your so serious about not attacking others and backing off and what not, why don't you shut the hell up? You can keep commenting, but it won't mean anything since your going against everything you say and doing the same things.hmm.
