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:

Why do all of 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.

"Marriage is between one man and one women" That's pretty clear to me, besides if everyone's gay there will be no such thing as children anymore.

The gay marriage is getting old. I personally agree with Kirk Cameron and think we as a nation end the conversation. Homosexuals in the 34 states that do not allow gay marriage move to California, New York, etc. where gay marriage is allowed and all is great and wonderful. I have almost given up on the argument. Just waiting on God's Wrath to come.

While I do not agree with Kirk's views in any way, I do believe that everyone has the right to their own opinion. We have freedom of speech but just as long as is PC.

why do some people respond with swearing & put downs? It's totally unnecessary. I agree with the person who wrote about the bible. I have a degree in philosophy & studied theology for 3 years.
