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:

@whatthehell-wrong gender & orientation. Intelligence comes from actually taking the time to LEARN what something is instead of ASSUMING -and you made this point brilliantly. Thanks for the laugh I got w/ your response & for showing everyone what ignorance looks like.

@TheFagFromGrowingPains--Yeah, it's even more hilarious if not pathetic how lispy lib-turds such as yourself embrace this insane notion that secretly everyone wants to screw people of the same sex! Probably makes you feel less in the minority! And.....this fantasy must help you to get through those frequent periods where no one wants to shag your anus for you and you can only get off looking at naked photos of men! Awwww....gee, we feel for ya, ha!

@Whoisit indeed you are correct. Different versions translated to English. The old game of tell a story, have 20 people sit in a circle and the last person says what the original story was. Never the same as the original. Lost in translation.

Shame on all the haters who need to hide behind their 'religions' and pervert man made text to support the hatred they hold in their hearts. Those are no better than that group who demonstrate hatred at funerals of fallen soldiers. Look into the mirror and see yourself for what you really are.

Way to go Kirk! I am proud of you for speaking out for what you believe. Previous posters said it well when they said that Kirk isn't hating the people, he's hating the sin they are committing. I'm sure he would pray for you if you are living in this sin.

@Lana-nice job! If ppl want 2 believe in the bible read it in its original language(s). The NT was written 70-100 yrs after Jesus died. The modern NT has 100s of diff versions-(translated from 4 diff lang, add in old & modern english, too) reading the same passage in several places in Romans (just 1 example) in 2 diff versions says 2 opposite things. Add the Dead Sea scrolls, 3 NT & 5 OT books that aren't in most modern bibles. Then understand the political, economic & social climate when all the different parts were written. that's been translated @ least 3 times (language) w/ hundreds of different versions is unwise. It's not @ all the same book yet ppl blindly believe bc it's the 'word of god.' And which god is that anyway?
