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.

I think the gay lifestyle is wrong. I have a right to say that. So does Kirk Cameron. Get over it! You bleeding heart liberals take notice. There's still a First Amendment right and it covers Christians as much as it does the rest of you.

Stop saying Christians are being attacked here! Are you joking? Wow, wake up, take a look at your life. You are behaving so disgustingly, who are you to choose whats right and wrong for anyone but yourselves???

Gay people's "behavior" is not a sin.

@SHARON KIDD Just because some here due to Christian beliefs do not condone the gay lifestyle doesn't mean they are advocating violence and bullying at school. What an outrageous stretch! Nobody has even hinted at that. Sorry, but you won't get away with such an unfair accusation! It is offensive for you to even suggest that! It's just another juvenile way for the advocates of this lifestyle to attempt to make Christians or anyone else with a differing view look bad. How lame and unfair is that!

Yeah, but you just did comment, Courtney, after Cheeky. You just can't shut up! We have children, too. Stop acting like you two are the only good parents in the world. You're not! You are so condescending! How do we know if you're a good Mom? We don't! You two come off very closed-minded on some issues as well. You're no better, so be quiet. @Cheeky Nobody said you needed to be like us. Just stop your judging of others who don't hold your same opinion. You relish trying to play the martyr on this issue. It's gotten old. If you're not the same person you both are certainly comrades at arms. When one shows up the other is sure to follow in short order. That's a little suspicious.

there is only one thing that every idiot who defames GLBT is creating...........more children who will defend their own bullying at school of gay kids. It is tragic because if it were any other minority targeted by Kirkie, he would be attacked by people who were encouraged by the population. Kirkie has just allowed more bullying, more suicides in our teen population. Good work, Kirkie...Christian man?????

I dare not comment when cheeky does, may seem like i'm her! Sorry, I was tending to the needs of my child, which seems some of you have forgot to do with yours! Cheeky, we have real experiences, which others lack. No one with open minds. Stuck in a little bubble of whats right and whats wrong. I'm glad someone here is open minded and realizes not everything is just black and white anymore!

Wow!!! So everyone has decided to attack me, my son and Courtney. We are not the same person, but I find it funny others think we are. I take it as a compliment. I'm going to agree to disagree. Belinda and Ryan, I thank God that I will never be like you. I'm done with you "adults".

I think this is a highly charged issue. No one who holds a strong opinion will convince someone else with a strong opposing one. When you feel really strong then you need to find yourself a group to be a part of so that you can make a difference. This really isn't the venue for change here that some might think it is.

@Courtneyj6 I agree. Your views are strong enough that they need an outlet far beyond a gossip site.
