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:

we are all living in sin it is true, we all have freedom of choice and each of us is truely blessed to live in a country that for now allows us to speek freely.i believe that the bilbe is a devine writting and that God has assured its truethfulness. Yes , it is an abomination to perform sex with a person of the same sex as is written, no I do not hate a gay person,as a matter of fact I have met quite a few lovley homosexuals and will hold fast that if they choose to be enlightend then it will come to pass that God can heal all, you only have to call on him and it wil be done. Prayers for the lonley ,homeless , elderly, sick and weak. May you seek the light.

@Jessie, you should pray to your god to help your 'blessed nation of Malaysia' to improve on its record of human rights violations including the persecution of gays and lesbians, detention of citizen without charge or trial, and labeling enemies of the Malaysian government as homosexual so that the government can persecute and destroy them.

Praise the Lord for someone like Kirk who is willing to stand up and speak up for the truth. God bless you. By the way if someone says that they are against same sex marriage it does not mean they hate the gays, they are simply standing up for what God meant it to be. Don't call Christian as haters just because they say like it is. Who is the hater now, we who stand for the truth without hating the gays or those who are so quick to jump on us for standing up for our faith and believe? God loves everyone. He said love the Sinners and hate the sin..we don't hate the sinners just the sin. We will always pray that the world will se the truth and the truth of God shall set them free.. God has never been wrong..so people don't test Him! Jessie from The blessed nation of Malaysia

I wonder what hater Kirk Cameron will do if his children are homosexual. Maybe he will hate them. He's part correct that the glue of the family holds society together. Some of the best families I know are headed by same sex couples who stay together for their love and not for a piece of paper or because some religion told them it is a sin to divorce. What a shame that haters like Kirk Cameron use religion as the excuse for their hatred. Kirk Cameron should ask his god to forgive him.

I do agree with Cameroon. The creator of the heaven and earth created the heavens and earth and everything in it. He created man and woman, he knows what is best for the human race. It is unclean the act that happens between man and man, can you imagine put your penis in another person bowel that is what is taken place. It is an unclean act.

I agree with Kirk. It's tough being surrounded by these pathetically liberal folks who nip at one's heels like an unruly chihuahua just because you're expressing your sincere conviction regarding homosexuality. The fact that 30+ states have voted down same sex marriage should herald a real message to those who demand their gay rights. Soldier on, Kirk! Sometimes the most worthwhile things in life to uphold come with a price and a struggle. Stay brave--move forward!
