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.

@Tam That's simple. Those things reflect customs of the era. Whereas this lifestyle is a moral issue. It's like adultery. The morality of that hasn't changed just because we are now in the 21st Century. It's went on for centuries of course and is much more common now, but it's still not condoned nonetheless.

Do you think God hated the sin of eating shellfish or wearing mixed fibers? I really want to understand why you just choose one part of the same scripture to follow and believe is wrong? It makes no sense to me.

@Tara You should read "The Animal Homosexuality Myth" by Luiz Sergio Solimeo. An excerpt: If seemingly "homosexual" acts among animals are in accordance with animal nature, then parental killing of offspring and intra-species devouring are also in accordance with animal nature. Bringing man into the equation complicates things further. Are we to conclude that filicide and cannibalism are according to human nature? You see, you can take the argument to the ridiculous. Mankind has a conscience. Animals don't.

@Cheeky Ha! Do you honestly think you could "agree to disagree" and leave it that? Please! This little comment is your way of edging into another barrage of your arguments and criticism. You do see yourself as a martyr--not because you love your son--no, no instead, you want everyone's sympathy so that you can make a case why their view of homosexuality is wrong if they don't condone it. What a ploy! The two of you (you and Courtney) extoll each other as such amazing Moms. Ha! It's a good thing you two have each other here on this site as a fan club member because it's all either of you have really. You act as if you're the only Mom with challenges and heartache. Geez! Get off the pity pot!

@Belinda, I was willing to agree to disagree but obviously you were not. You have done nothing but judge others since you've been on the site. You told Courtney to be quiet what happened to freedom of speech??? I guess that applies only to you and your views. I am not a martyr because I love my son.
