Kirk Cameron Stars in "Champion of Marriage" Video; GLAAD Slams Actor in Statement

by at . Comments

Kirk Cameron, who caused an uproar by calling homosexuality unnatural, detrimental to society and immoral in an interview with Piers Morgan in March, is at it again.

Well, a lot more subtly this time.

The National Organization for Marriage has just released a video labeling Cameron "one of America's most important champions of marriage."

It's an apparent tip of the hat in response to his vocal opposition to gay marriage, and suffice it to say, gay rights activists are far from pleased.

"Kirk Cameron and the anti-gay activists at NOM are making a claim that Americans know to be false," GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said.

"This rhetoric won't work anymore. Communities across this country love and cherish their LGBT neighbors, friends and family members."

Cameron's anti-gay views are not as expressly stated this time, but the implication of the video above is that marriage only applies to heterosexuals.

"If we want a great future in this world, we have to take God at his word," the former Growing Pains star says in the "Champion of Marriage" video.

"God makes it really clear that society and civilization is really held together by the glue of families... It needs to be a home that is full of faith."

"In order to have that kind of a home, marriages need to be strong because that's ultimately going to serve as the foundation for our family."

"When a man and a woman say 'I do,' they are committing for a lifetime to love each other and to model what love is and what forgiveness is and what joy is to their kids."

Seemingly everything Cameron said about marriage should go for anyone taking vows, regardless of the sex of the spouses. Or so you would think.

Apparently NOM thinks otherwise, though. The group's latest press release praises GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's anti-gay marriage stance.

What do you think? Same-sex marriage:

ERL- you are misquoting what the original bible says-you'd know that if you studied the book you misquote. The argument that 'gays' can't make babies is nonsense. If it waas valid, heteros would only have sex to procreate & we both know that's false. The bible says we are supposed to love & accept everyone - not just these or those. It also says not to hate. It also says not to cast the 1st stone & that b/c Jesus came, we don't need to live by the commandments b/c he fulfilled them. As for civil rights, I don't agree- this country was founded on freedom for all-not just the ones you agree w/. Please do more research on the bible, dec of ind, etc. & find out for yourself what the truth is or it's just like being a sheep-which the bible tells us not to do.

@wow-new name huh? Much like the other 2 you used this morning. If you are so sure of yourself why don't you just use one? Because you don't have the guts. Because all you can do is attack people who don't agree w/ you. Because you act like a 5 year old who doesn't like what your parents say. Grow up already & learn how to have an adult conversation w/ others. Quit throwing a tantrum already.

Don't misquote the Bible as an excuse to be disobedient,and as a reaason to stay in your sin.
What are the gays depositing into our children? The whole act is NOT NATURAL. Two men cana reproduce. Two women cant do it either. YOU NEED MAN ADN WOMAN.
Also, Dont use gay sa a civil rights issue. You were born white, black, yellow orange or what have you... Youo didnt have a choice in that but you CHOOSE to be the way you are anda say your civil rights are violated. WOW piggy backing on the struggles because yours is weak. REALLY.
Does the Bible say that we are born Gay? I DONT THINK SO...... Show me. (you can't) Nobody hates Gays.... We just hate your SIN, the same way we do a Bank robber, drug dealer, the person who cheats on his/her spouse (some with the same sex and oh yeah....... the liar too. Stop lying to yourselves. You are just to lazy to try a REAL relationship that is healthy and productive.
We will pray for you too..... Continually!! This is tearing our country apart!!!!!

The bible doesn't say homosexuality is wrong. Read it in its original language- greek & hebrew aramaic's hard-it's a lost language). THEN you'll know the inspired word. And by the way, the 'god' you refer to-that's not his name. Get 2 different versions of bibles & read the last 4-5 chapters of Galatians...it's true.

Why do you care if lgbtq will get 'God's Wrath? Not your life or decision. Homosexuality has been on earth for thousands of years-before humans were here. The bible doesn't say homosexuality is wrong. Read it in its original language. Not King James (which isn't in ITS orig lang of middle english, or the latin IT was translated from. Read the greek & hebrew( aramaic's hard-it's a lost language). THEN you'll know the inspired word. And by the way, the 'god' you refer to-that's not his name. If you don't believe me, get 2 different versions of bibles & read the last chapter of Galatians-you'll see...it's true.
