Kirk Cameron Tells Piers Morgan Homosexuality is ‘Unnatural,’ ‘Destructive’

kirk cameron piers morgan

Readers of a certain age will remember Kirk Cameron as the star of the 80′s sitcom Growing Pains, but it’s no secret that in later years he has embraced Christianity in a big way.

Cameron’s tendencies toward moralizing became an issue for the show in its later seasons, when he began demanding script re-writes to remove any references to things he felt might be untoward. In the intervening years, Cameron has become somewhat of an icon in the evangelical community, but he was back in the mainstream appearing on Piers Morgan this week. Not very surprisingly, when Morgan grilled Cameron on gay marriage, he had some controversial things to say about the issue.

First Cameron explained that gay marriage was, in his estimation, a redefinition of marriage as it was invented by God. He said:

“Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don’t think anyone else should either… So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t.”

When asked more generally about homosexuality, Cameron continued:

“I think that it’s… it’s… it’s unnatural. I think that it’s… it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Morgan followed up with a question about how Cameron would react if his own son was gay, to which the 80′s heartthrob eventually responded that “just because you feel that way doesn’t mean you have to act on everything you feel.” In response to the comments by Cameron, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) issued the following statement:

“In this interview, Kirk Cameron sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character. Cameron is out of step with a growing majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.”

In the course of the interview, Cameron also said that he opposes abortion, even in cases of rape, where he feels an abortion “compounds the problem.”

    What a homophobic piece of garbage…go eat a banana!

    WOW! What he is a piece of garbage! I have more words for him, ALOT WORSE!

    I mean, seriously- it's 2012… No abortions for rape victims? That's a GREAT idea… ssssuuuuurrree… The whole no-birth-control bit in and of itself is sooooo stupid. You want MORE welfare babies? We can't even feed ourselves, much less MORE people.

    What about, for instance, a girl who would DIE if she became pregnant? Should she have to die (and the baby as well) so that you can feel self-righteous? Gimme a break, you two bit dated hack…

  4. Bruce Lee

    and to all you angry republicans out there- birth control is the ONLY thing keeping us out of socialism and communism. If everybody was still having babies at medieval rates with the longer life expectancy, we would be the size of China and the government would have to feed everyone…

    Unless you're advocating a world where we just have a million babies every week but then kill 900,000 of them off with starvation…

    I agree that there are more effective methods of birth control than abortion- but life is not a perfect place and people make mistakes.

    How would you feel if I told you that I was a mistake?
    Would that feeling change if I told you that today I live 100% on state aid?

    Let's just say that essentially, I am a 1980s welfare baby. Do you think that I might have ever considered suicide as an adult, out of deep dark depression from knowing that in all likelihood I am a waste of time and energy, and my life will likely never amount to anything? Do you think I go to sleep every night with this deep, dark thought right at the tip of my mind? Do you think I ever drink myself to sleep every night to forget the failure that my life has become?

    Maybe my abject failures as a human being could have all been prevented with a single abortion- and I would never have to feel this pain. Suicide is not really an option because of what that would do to others around me… Thus, perhaps from a certain perspective, abortion could have saved you all a long lifetime of listening to me rant…

    Think of it this way, if my mother would have had an abortion, I would not be here to advocate war in Libya, or the legalization of cannabis in America… Maybe I would not be able to stand here today and tell you that your views on abortion are CRUEL AND UNUSUAL, at best.

    Perhaps I could offer you the perspective of one who lives with the never-ending bite of pain, sorrow, and failure- and tell you that LIFE ON THIS PLANET IS IN AND OF ITSELF CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT… If I could go back in time and choose abortion for myself, I can tell you that I would at very least consider it.

    I gladly combat your tear-factory with my tears…

    Regardless of whether or not you would consider abortion does not allow you to make the decision for others. And the idea of more children=communism is complete ludicrous. The greatest resource a country can have is people. China is communist because that is what it chose. North Vietnam is communist, yet they have only 90 million people. We have over 300 million and we are not communist. See the disconnect? And no. No abortions for rape victims. Just because one person committed a horrible, disgusting, and morally degrading act does not make the killing of an innocent child ok.

  6. Bruce Lee

    Peter Barnett Oh yeah, but it makes it totally OK to put the rape victim through the hell of carrying her attacker's child…

    you truly make me sick…

  7. Peter Barnett

    Bruce Lee You totally miss the point. Which is greater….Life….or carrying a baby….? Life obviously.

  8. Shannon M. Fox

    Kirk Cameron is a joke, along with others who believe this way. I am not gay, but I have a brother and several friends who are. What is wrong with it? To find someone who loves you for you, sexuality shouldn't be a factor. It is a shame that in this day and age that people are so close minded, I live in the midwest where a conservative background is the way of life, but you can begin to see the change where things are more accepting. I don't want to sit and listen to someone else preach to me their opinions on their version of the bible. GTFU!

  9. Rick Pannell

    Kirk Cameron is a self righteous errogant pig. As an actor even worse. He's probably sucked more cock than most gay men. You don't know who wrote the bible or changed things to fit the way they want life. Your a white religous fanatic who believes all the fairy tales in the book the bible… come on men living in whales bellys and talking bushes… your an ass hole Cameron… just go away you worthless piece of shit.

  10. Joyce Hansbearry

    Kirk has every right to his own opinion and his practice of free speech. He is NOT guaranteed everyone will like or agree, but that's ok. His opinion, his right. As long as he's not hurting anyone, what's the big deal? Where is all that TOLERANCE people are always pushing? Seems to me if people want the world to be tolerant of sexual orientation, race, religion, soap opera viewing, 24-hour football, whatever, they have the responsibility of being tolerant, as well. I don't see where gay marriage has or will harm anyone, so I'm for it. Let the people who don't like it complain, that's their right. I've seen MANY heterosexuals disgrace the institution of marriage by adultery and divorce, so I don't think a gay person can do any worse than that. Anything that promotes FIDELITY is a good thing, in my opinion. And heterosexuals can't even do that. But slamming on Kirk and calling him names and belittling him does not help the cause FOR gay marriage, it just adds fuel to the fire and pushes more wedges into TOLERANCE.

  11. Tara Ziehl Patenaude

    Peter Barnett Im sorry but if I were raped, and got pregnant as a result- I would absolutely have an abortion. I would not torture myself for 9 months. Bad enough rape in itself causes irrepairable damage to a womans psyche as it is, then to throw that into the mix- no thanks. Easy for you to say something like that- your male, youd never have to worry about that sort of thing.

  12. Dave Russell

    I'm a Republican who is angry about where our country is today..a mess. If you read the Bible, Kirk is "biblically sound" in his view on these issues. But the issues today are getting the economy turned around, gas prices lowered, housing prices up, and jobs for all who want one. The Republicans have got to get back on this message or it will be a disaster in November. Got to focus on what is important to the Independents in order to win.

  13. Marie Little

    If you are a Christian, abortion is wrong. It is killing. No matter what the circumstance. Who are we to play God. God put that little life here whether by rape or a happy circumstance for a reason. What if that little life gets taken away by an abortion and that life was meant by God to imporve this country or even the world? Ever hear of two wrongs don't make a right? Why take the life of an innocent child because thee mother was raped? The first wrong was the rape don't compound it by adding murder. We were all created for a reason. Amen for people like Kirk Cameron who are Pro-Heterosexual Marriage and Pro-Life!

  14. Karen Bartz

    I commend Cameron on his resolve of his convictions in a "politically" correct world. The Bible is the true word of God and what it says is what it says. I am sorry that there are fewer and fewer people in today's world that accept this fact. With all the things going on in the world today I don't see how people don't accept this fact. May God bless America where it is still aright to say what you feel and believe in. I am on your side, Cameron. Thanks.

    A man marrying a man and a woman marrying a woman is against GOD'S LAW AS STATED IN LEVITICUS 18:22, 1 KINGS 14:24, LEVITICUS 20:13, ROMANS 1:24, 26 & 27.

  16. Mike Dunchok

    But attitudes like that ARE hurting people. He's allowed to say it and think that way same as people are "allowed" to be in the KKK. But it follows that we'll all call him an asshole, and that's alright too. What's the problem?

  17. Lori Wolf

    Peter Barnett OBVIOUSLY YOU won't have to carry the seed of violence within you to grow – do you not think that feeling the kick of life inside you that was caused by someone that violated you in the WORST possible way, might just drive a woman insane or worse suicide??? Oh yea, that would be her FAULT too. Too bad men can't be pregnant from being raped anally – i bet there wouldn't be ANY question on whether or not you had to carry a reminder inside of you and give birth! Seriously Peter – and I'm not FOR abortion for myself, but definitely in the case of rape or incest!!! You look too young to even understand the emotional scarring of such violence. For your sake I hope you don't – for rape and incest victims – well, i will stand aside for your experience. Cold hearted? absolutely, but on the same level as you thinking you have ANY right to FORCE a woman to carry the seed of evil within her as a daily reminder = it would be like being raped over and over and over again daily. AND how do you think that will affect the child?? There is a lot proven regarding the mother's state of mind and affect on the fetus. Or are you going to force mind control next??

  18. Lori Wolf

    yes, i agree Kirk has a right to his opinion. I don't have to agree with it and neither does anyone else. AS long as his opinion isn't made the law

  19. Lori Wolf

    yes, i agree Kirk has a right to his opinion. I don't have to agree with it and neither does anyone else. AS long as his opinion isn't made the law

  20. Debby Brown-Vedder

    Kirk Cameron is NOT A JOKE, He is a GOOD CHRISTIAN MAN AND IF YOU READ YOUR BIBLE YOU WOULD SEE ITS AGAINST GOD'S LAW, LEVITICUS 18:22, 1 KINGS 14:24, LEVITICUS 20:13 & ROMANS 1:24, 26 & 27

  21. Debby Brown-Vedder

    You PEOPLE WHO ARE BAD MOUTHING KIRK CAMERON CAN TAKE A HIKE! READ YOUR BIBLE! LEVITICUS 18:22, 1ST KINGS 14:24, LEVITICUS 20:13, AND ROMANS 1:24, 26 & 27!

  22. Lori Wolf

    OMG! I pray no one you know is raped – or even worse – the victim of incest – or that the life of a female loved one isn't threatened by pregnancy. Then that belief with be put to the test. I believe that God can take any situation and make it a powerful testimony. Because I BELIEVE in God and in showing God's LOVE, not trying to force God's love on someone and i definitely don't think it is my job to force any woman to carry a child to term that is the result of violence or depravity. It would be the seed of evil – if not because of how it got there, then from the anguish and terror the mother would relive everyday. How do you think you are going to control THAT?? Too bad, carry it and hate it everyday anyway? You don't think that will have ANY effect on the baby? Think again.

  23. Jeff Woehrle

    It's about time liberals give as much 'tolerance' to Christians as they give to Muslim terrorists. Bravo for Kirk Cameron.

  24. Debby Green Kwiecien

    Kirk is right on with his assessment of gay/lesbian relationships they are destructive to society. Acceptance does not mean agreement. The Bible teaches Christians to love one another–that includes gays/lesbians. But it also teaches that those relationships are unnatural and not to be sought after. Society is turning away from Christianity in so many ways taking God out of schools and allowing gay marriages–Christians are not to judge these, but to preach/teach God's love and those who have turned from the Lord will come back to his fold cleansed of all sin and reborn in God's love.

  25. Betty Avret

    Debby Brown-Vedder Thank you for your comment! I wish if anyone is in doubt …READ THE BIBLE> God says its WRONG!!!!

  26. Deborah Hoff

    Peter Barnett I agree with you. The baby had nothing to do with the violence. She/he was forced to be there as much as the rape. If the mother can't stand to look at the face of the rapist in the child then there's always adoption. How many couples long for a baby of their own who can't have one and this out weighs supply in the US. These families care little for who the father or bio mother was for that matter. They just want that precious new life. It's the self-centered individual who looks only at how their life will be impacted by the infant, instead of how the infant has no rights or say in his/her right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I'm sure if you asked most people if they were glad their mothers chose life in cases of rape, you are likely to get an overwheming response of, Thank God she choose to keep me!

    Kirk spoke with sincerity and honesty. He is a lone voice among the media elite who prefer everyone has their exact opinion on everything they (the media) believe. I applaud CNN for interviewing Kirk. He said everyone sins, so are these people who are condemning Kirk saying they don't sin? So Shannon are you saying you don't sin? What if in the future theives all of a sudden start to claim they can't help their behavior and that is something they are born with? What if they say their DNA pushes them to do what they do? Should we accept that those theives are naturally that way? IT'S ALL A CHOICE, people have free will to do what they chose to do. Homosexuality has done an excellent job of slanting the popular view that they are BORN homosexuals. Children are not born sexual AT ALL. Not heterosexual nor homosexual. They are babies. I personally know a child who was born from a rape (his mother was only 14) and he is a wonderful guy. Should his life be extinguished because of something he could not control nor help? Should he be killed because of what his father did? He is someone I love dearly, he is kind, sensitive, caring, he has been a sweet friend to my own son, I am so very thankful to his mother for chosing to bring him into this world, even though she was raped violently. She is white and he is black. Her son is biracial and people have looked down upon her because of that too. I tell people this "would you want someone to move into your house that is a theif, a liar, a pediphile, a sexual pervert, a abuser, or someone violent? Of course not. Of course you would not want someone like that to live in your home and possibly harm your family. Well, neither does God. God doesn't want someone like that to live in His home (Heaven) so He asks people to repent." When people rebell against being called sinners, well they just wont be able to live in God's home.

  30. Peter Barnett

    Tara Ziehl Patenaude You people constantly miss the point. This argument has NOTHING to do whether or not if the woman is hurt emotionally. I agree that rape is horrific and disgusting and that emotions are destroyed! But you cannot kill a child due to your emotions. Let's say she has the child. And when the child is 5 years old, she recognizes that he/she is still causing her emotional pain and so she wants to kill the child. Can she? Of course not! It is a human being with a right to life. The question is not about whether or not if the baby is emotionally damaging, it is whether or not it is a person. And for everyone who says that "men aren't allowed to argue because we can't have kids":

    1. About 50% of babies aborted are male.
    2. It is our child as well.
    3. 9 MALE supreme court justices were involved in the case of Roe v. Wade and 7 MALE justices made the decision that abortion should be legal.

    Food for thought.

  31. David Ramirez

    Tolerance goes both ways; tolerance for things that some don't believe in and tolerance for those who express their opinons as to why.

  32. Brian Patten

    Female minister? really? Shouldn't you be married to a minister and baking cookies for the ladies auxillary or something? Thats what is says in the Bible……….just saying

  33. Lisa Brewster

    the person being raped commits NO sin. God didn't put that baby there, the rapist did. God allows nature to rule. when sperm meets egg, thats what you get, a baby. The way it happened (rape) was a sin, but not against the woman being raped. Just like someone that gets a disease, God doesn't pick and choose who will get a deadly disease. It happens and we deal with it. God gives us our choices. How we deal with it, or how we don't deal with it is up to us. Go to God in prayer and talk to Him about it. Abortion does kill the baby. That is a sin. Homosexuality is a sin. Bad things happen to good people too. Its just how nature goes. You can't argue with God when he says something is a certain way, it doesn't matter what you or I think, it just IS. why? Because God said so. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the Ending. People will have to stand in judgement for their own sins. All we can do is know what is right or wrong and do the best we can to follow Gods word to the T. Those that don't will end up in hell. Thats not my judgement, but Gods words. Kirk said what he believes, i agree 100%. The guy interviewing him was deliberately trying to cause trouble and it was obvious he is pro gay. But honestly, I don't think anyone thats not gay cares what that gay club has to say. I know I don't.

  34. Libby Hampton

    I don't think Kirk every said not to have christian love for homosexuals or that you should force people to have a baby after rape He Just said he thought it was wrong. You can love people and think that some things they do are wrong. I have yet to see a perfect person or anyone who thinks they are in church or out.

  35. Lisa Brewster

    if a girl would die if she got pregnant, then she shouldn't be risking her life by having sex.

  36. Joan Gunning- Molloy

    Seriously, Kirk the jerk! I cant wait till he goes to meet his God and has to go through his boyfriend first!!

  37. Bill Kenny

    Luckily for Cameron if someone chooses to rape him he would not have the horror of carrying his attackers child for nine months…It is so easy to sit back and criticize others when you do not have to feel their pain… If God created gay humans would he really want them to live their lives alone? Being born gay is NOT a choice… I think all people have the right to be happy and to live their lives in a way that they see fit…As long as they do not force their choices on others..Is that not what Cameron is doing?

  38. Lisa Brewster

    Brian Patten … although you were being sarcastic, you are correct. women should not be preachers. It does say that women should not have authority over a man and are to be SILENT in the church. I applaud you for knowing that.

  39. Lenna Doll

    How many people out there in the real world realize that there is no definition of "marriage'' in the Bible? Why don't we just leave everyone else alone and lead our own lives the way we see fit. Let people love the person they love and worry about things like the huge islands of debri coming at the west coast from the Japanese disaster. I mean REALLY important stuff like that.

  40. Lenna Doll

    By the way, Marie Little, if a woman becomes pregnant because her father molested her, it isn't God that put that little life inside her. It was her sick bastard of a father. God had nothing to do with it…..

  41. Lori Wolf

    Deborah Hoff medication, really? for free thinking? Nice to know a therapist thinks it's ok for someone to carry a child to term after being raped. Geez . . . but yes, you are entitled to your opinion, it's just scary that you are a therapist. oh, and btw, I AM adopted. and it doesn't always work out so beautifully or even fairly, but that is another issue.

  42. Brian Patten

    Lisa Brewster…yes I was being sarcastic. My point was that people should not make hurtful comments or state opinions base on how they interpret the Bible. If Sharon is a minister then she should know that already.

  43. Tara Ziehl Patenaude

    Deborah Hoff Im pretty sure that women have the right to do what they want to with their own body. Even if the baby is an innocent bystander- I sure as hell would not torture myself- yes Im selfish- tough shit I can live with that. Whos to say that whatever rage or mental defect makes a rapist do what he does isnt genetic? So Im gonna torture myself for 9 months- have to explain to others how the baby came to be- and then give to some couple to potentially raise a psychopath because its in his fathers genes? Ya- Ill pass. Ill leave that to you!!

  44. Lori Wolf

    Peter Barnett This argument has NOTHING to do whether or not if the woman is hurt emotionally??? How does one even begin to someone who says something like that? Soooo, the bottom line is women have NO control over their body. period. I suggest we stop having children, hell even sex period if this kind of thinking becomes main stream. like I mentioned before Peter, you look really young, so I can give you that much. OMGoodness, I'm so glad i cannot reproduce anymore! btw, how can anyone say that there are fewer CHILDREN than potential families in the USA???? REALLY?? i guess you only mean pretty white babies with blue eyes or something – or perfect babies with no problems, because the last time I checked there were plenty of older children that need adopting families – PLENTY! And they ALL need love – so how about we put a moratorium on having babies until ALL Children have homes? Or is that too hard?

  45. Aimee Boswell

    Lisa Brewster Not every girl goes to here gynocologist and is told. "Have a sex and be foolish enough to get pregnant you are going to die" In the case I think Bruce was trying to enlighten up on you was the case for ectopic pregancies. They cannot be predicted by complete certainly, and are usually a surprise (unless of course the mother to be had multiple instances of these types of pregancies). This is where the egg is fertilized OUTSIDE the uterus and while it is still in the fallopean tube. So are you suggesting that all women who happen to have this unfortunate experience be forced to allow themselves die because it makes you feel all warm and cosy with your msytical sky jew. That by forcing her to die that you buy your place in heaven? ou extremists sicken me.

  46. Lori Wolf

    Lisa Brewster um, i care, and I'm not gay, but then again, i'm not trying to tell you or Kirk to "like" gays – but you should love them because says love your neighbor – and that is what the God of my understanding says. He also tells me to show others my love for him by walking like him – not spewing condemnation at others. But like you believe, the day will come when we all stand before Him and I'm quite comfortable with that idea. See you there!

  47. Lori Wolf

    Lisa Brewster ok, i know this must be difficult for you so let me break it down in small sentences (yes, i am getting mad, so it's time for me quit reading after this, before i embarrass myself)
    He didn't say a girl would KNOW SHE WOULD DIE if she got pregnant. He's saying if she found out the pregnancy was killing her. But I know that's not important to you. only the baby. just saying tho

  48. Lori Wolf

    Peter Barnett "Regardless of whether or not you would consider abortion does not allow you to make the decision for others"
    NOW you are making sense! It's about not allowing one to make the decision for another. Enuf said.

  49. Aimee Boswell

    Bruce Lee I agree with you on some. I was a product of either a one night stand or from the rape of my mother (who was 15 years old) from a gang rape by the Hells Angel in the mid 1970's. Now life I had to make it,prety much on my own. I have not nor have I ever had a relationship with my birth mother. I read a letter my aunt showed me about her asking a priest or pastor about abortion. He convinced her not to do it and I am glad she did. Even though she shunned me as a bad remembarance of her past, it has no affect on me. I am a wife, a mother and I have a professional degree and work in the medical field helping people try to live better quality of life with their disease. I own my house, pay taxes and have struggeled to get where I am today, and I am stronger for it. I feel that I am a valuable member to society and I am grateful that I was given that chance.

  50. Deborah Hoff

    Lori Wolf : What's scary is how angry you are over this issue. And I don't think the fact that you are adopted is "another issue". To you, I think it IS the issue. You don't think it works because it didn't go well in your own personal experience and you are transfering this to the issue of the alternative to abortion which is adoption. Well, I'm sorry your adoptive parents sucked but a lot out there don't. Nuf said.

  51. Janis Ireland

    I'm sorry but I truly always thougth Cameron was gay. That he went into his religion as a way to fight his gayness. There is an old saying from Shakespeare "Methinks he dost protest too much". He would not be the first anti gay evangelist who was secretly gay. It just makes him dispicable to denounce people who are gay, when he himself is gay. If you search you will find the proof of his gayness. Someone should ask him, are you gay, and NOT acting on your gayness? Because that is what he wants others to do. He is not courageous enough to come out and be honest. But one day, someone will talk, their will be photos etc and he will have to deal with the fact he has been denouncing gay people when he himself is gay. I heard he was gay, and I thought he was gay while on the program…..way before he got so much press for being this ultra Christian. Will Christ be with the Camerons of this world when he comes back or the people the Camerone and others treat so horribly. I believe I know the answer to that.

  52. Lori Wolf

    Deborah Hoff yea, i do get angry over this issue – most issues I can be reasonable about, however this one punches my buttons because I just CANNOT understand how anyone can think it's ok to tell a woman what she can do with her own body! That's what I cannot get over. The bottom line is that the two sides cannot seem to compromise, which is what's really needed.
    And about adoption: here in california in the 1960's closed adoptions mean CLOSED. Those of us unfortunate enough to be born here have no recourse in having access to our original birth certificates. I know a lot of people did well in their adoptions. However, me AND my adopted sister went through psychotic hell. But what we want is to find our birth mothers – to see ONE OTHER HUMAN BEING that shares our flesh and blood.
    People can't know what it's like to be adopted anymore than one race can know what it's like for another race. But anyway, I digress. I seriously doubt there's going to be anything more worth discussing here. Yes Kirk is entitled to his opinion and all the rest of you too. Just don't try MAKE others believe your way. with that note, i will follow my own advice and shut up. Have a blessed day.

  53. Silver Bean

    Everyone has the right to his or her own opinion;however, why is every other person thumping the Bible these days?? surely we must have something else to talk about or discuss! I thought Cameron was gay too-I have no problem with that. I stay as open as I can when it comes to many things….Bible class is not one of them or people shoving it down our necks 24/7~~~~~:)

  54. Janis Ireland

    To those of you bashing women ministers, the very early group of Christians, who knew Christ, had women who were very powerful in their group. Both men and women witnessed. Mary and Martha etc and their were many other women who were also martyred for their faith. Women belong where ever they want to be…where ever they can affect change and witness for Christ. Jesus had women who traveled with him and were equal to his disciples…..These people calling for women to be baking cookies…probably never go to church themselves. And anyone who is active in church knows that it is the women who teach Sunday school, bible school, that churches would not exist without the women.

  55. April Messer Hicks

    As I have stated once, this man…who is HUMAN, has the right to his opinion, would u have had him lie, pretend that he believes another way, just to be attacked for that belief?
    Why isn't this man entitled to his feelings, opinions & beliefs, because the camera is on him? I see others posting & ranting about his remarks, who are you to give an opinion on his beliefs, if he isn't allowed to share them? Leave the man alone!

  56. Terry North

    People who are GAY do NOT wake up one morning and say 'Gee, I think I'll turn gay today!' Sexuality IS determined at conception…PERIOD!!! I have a gay nephew, and I will admit that it was a bitter pill to swallow when I learned this, but I love him and his partner. He tried dating women, but he knew women weren't for him, just as I know women aren't for me! He almost commited suicide begins he didn't understand what was happening to him. As for gay marriage, well, I just don't know, I have to believe that marriage IS between a man and a woman.

  57. Terry North

    David, a republican isnt going to get those things turned around, they are for the rich and always will be Im afraid. We were doing pretty good when Clinton left office, GDubya destroyed EVERYTHING!!!! Its going to take a looooong time to for any president to turn this country around.

  58. Teri Vassino

    Very well said Shannon. I a 55 year old mother and if either one of children announced they were gay i would say good for you and you have my support in anything you do. Why? because I Love my children! and gods believes that its correct for the priests to have sex with young men! Give me a break…..

  59. Janis Ireland

    Being gay or homosexual is not a choice. Incontrovertible research proves that being gay happens while children are still in the womb….children are born gay…there is a famous study with twins that bears this out. There are brain scans that show the difference between twins where one is gay and the other straight. God creates gay babies who become gay children and gay adults. Most gay people will tell you they always knew, from the time they were very young that something was different. This is between gay people and God. You are not to judge. And all the verses that people say are in the bible that denounce homosexuality are not read correctly. I have read those verses by someone who can tranlate from the original biblical texts. They do not say that at all. If you want an accurate translation just let me know because it is high time someone prints the correct translation….and gay haters won't be able to use inaccurate translations from the original texts to prove their invalid point.

  60. Susan Cross Stinnett

    My God loves everyone no matter what. The Bible was written by man….no one really knows for sure except God who is right or wrong. I attend a church that makes it very clearn the Table belongs to the Lord and is open to everyone and does not belong to the church.

    Till you experience a horrific rape, being bullied, a child raped at 12 or 13 with a baby, a woman being beat daily etc don't be so quick to judge. Till you have a child in pain or a friend you won't understand the pain.

    I don't agree with what he said but I live in a country that allows up to have religious freedom….so I won't get upset with him but change the channel. WE all have to live with our selves. You can argue alll day about what he said and defend him…..it's what you beleive that counts.

    Have a blessed day and be thankful you don't have to make the hard choices other do……

  61. Deborah Hoff

    Lori Wolf: Sorry, freedom of speech and all that. Anyone can say anything they like and if others believe it, it's their free will to do so. But I wouldn't give up on mom and pops if I were you. CA has some of the best P.I.s around. If you pay for a good one, you should still be able to find them. Before you shell out money try an adoption site. Maybe iwasadopted.com. I don't know how good it is but it's worth a try. "Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find". Don't let anyone tell you you can't. The problem is. You might not like what you find. Just remember, it doesn't matter where you come from. What matters is what you choose to be right here, right now in the moment. And you can choose to take that advice or not.

  62. Teri Vassino

    First of all i believe that men have no say in this matter. Thisyoung girl or grown woman has to carry this
    fetus for 9 months and the girl would carry the horrible act the way it was concieved. Abort!!!

  63. Lisa Brewster

    Lori Wolf .. I am not condeming anyone on my own words, God condems it. So on His authority I know its WRONG. I do love everyone, for their souls sake. I wish everyone would know God as He desires it. I don't like the sin, and want no part of it. Legalizing gay marriage is the same as legalizing incest. Both are sickening, wrong, and a sin. Just because someone has the desire to be gay, doesn't mean they should act upon it. Same as a person who has the desire to have sex with their child, doesn't mean they should act on it and push to have it be legal. I'll rephrase my words from before. Anyone that is a true christian and knows the truth, will not care if they offend the gay club. And as far as your god as you put it… there is only ONE TRUE GOD. yes ma'am, i'll see you and everyone else there on judgement day. God bless.

  64. Kathy Edwards Wells

    WAY TO GO Cameron! I applaud you for standing up and speaking for your beliefs. So very well said.

  65. Lisa Brewster

    Aimee Boswell .. no i'm not saying that at all. He said if she got pregnant she would die, which made it sound like she knew before she got pregnant.. I'm an extemist? I think not. You're just a little jumpy on your assumptions of me maybe.

  66. Lillian Jones

    Kirk you are not judge or juror just because a person find love in the same sex doesn't mean its unnatural people can't control who they fall in love with and by making a comment lets new know that you are small minded and you need to take a better look at

  67. Lenna Doll

    Blessings on you for your empathy and tolerance, Susan. You are the kind of human being that all of us should try to be.

  68. Janis Ireland

    To me, there is a difference of time re abortion. Otherwise just having a period would be an abortion for a woman. And a man ejaculating for whatever reason would be destroying life if he wasn't having sex with a married partner in order to have children. I believe that there is a difference about the time one has an abortion. We don't have funerals if someone loses a baby at two weeks….or four weeks. I lost a twin at 12 weeks. No one even mentioned that there could be a service and I've been in church ministry since I was a teen ager. However , another friend who lost a baby, who had been unable to conceive, did have a funeral at 3 months. However, that is rarely done. I think rape victims getting the morning after pill is OK…the rapist actually has rights to the child that the mother may bear…it is more difficult with incest victims, because they are many times unable to report, because they are younger, and it is only when they are far along and showing that people find out. in the 1970's I knew of an 11 year old girl who had been raped and was pregnant. How can you expect a child to carry a pregnancy? Again, I believe any abortion in these cases must be as soon as possible. There isi a time that life does quicken in the womb. And that is the main disagreement with people. Denying women birth control because a faith demands it is taking women back to the dark ages. Margaret Sanger started Planned Parent hood almost a 100 years ago. Her mother died at 50 after being pregnant 22 times. People don't realize how the life span of women has increased since they are now having 2, 3 or 4 babies instead ot 10 or 12 or 20.

  69. Tito Merkerson

    I wasn't going to say anything BUT I feel compelled to. Kirk Cameron isn't judging…. He was asked how he felt and he answered the question; period. My outlook is similar to Kirk's but that's not to say I am judging homosexuals or suggesting that they're going to hell or anywhere else. Sin is sin…we ALL sin. No sin is greater or lesser than the next. But of all sins commited by myself and everyone, specifically, homosexuality is just something I will never accept. By Gods Word, Adam and Eve NOT Adam and Steve nor Eve and Evette nor any other conbination that relates to two of the same sex. What people choose to do with their lives is their business but no matter what, what's right is right and what's wrong is wrong. According to the biblical text, sin is wrong and that includes homosexuality. But that's not for me, Kirk or anyone else to judge in the end. I may comit sins daily but I WILL NOT try to alter the word of God to fit my lifestyle. That's the difference.

  71. Janis Ireland

    Let's get one thing straight. People, the 99% can not afford glasses, hearing aids, tests for cancer etc. They sure as heck can't afford an abortion. NO ONE USES abortion for BIRTH CONTROL…no one would put their body thru that when the pill is so much cheaper….or even the morning after pill in case of rape or incest…..so stop saying people use abortion as birth control And it you want to stop abortion, make it easier for people to get contreceptives. It is like saying guys get vasectomies all the time rather than using a condom…get real….people don't have money for abortions. Abortions are a last case scenario and hopefully in the earliest hours or weeks of a prenancy. It is not birth control…and those of you who think it is…..are not pro women. Only a coward and a mean vindictive man who stop the woman he loves from having access to birth control. I know, I know…a man's use of birth control is seeing a prostitute witness all the Republicans who were caught with prostitutes who think they have the right to comment on birth contol and abortion. This is a womens issue. Period. Yes, that was Senator Vitter…caught with a prostitute…his kind of birth control….and now thinks he can make statements about women, and birth control. What an absolutely shallow shallow excuse for a man.

  72. Janis Ireland

    I am not saying anything hateful about Cameron. I am not gay but I know and love people who are. But Cameron is just another evangelist who is gay who is hiding behind his Christianity. What will you all say when he finally is forced to come out….when he is caught having an affair. And it is OK if he is gay…but i t is not OK to be a gay basher when he is gay…..and he is….the more he speaks out and says awful things about gay people, the sooner someone is going to come forward with proof.

  73. Maria Martin Ruark

    I love Cameron and wish a lot more Christians would stand on what they believe instead of being afraid of "rocking the boat"…Society has begun to "accept" too many things as the norm! Things were so much better when people lived by THE book!!! B I B L E..Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!!!

  74. Maria Martin Ruark

  75. Nick Jones

    Leviticus says that wearing mixed fabric is against "God's law", so is working on SATURDAY (the sabbath), growing flowers in a vegetable garden, touching a woman who is on her period, eating shellfish and pork, having milk touch meat. Do you move outside of the city walls when on your "cycle?" Do you have a priest do the required cleaning ritual? What about stoning unruly children? Did you perform your required burnt offering on an altar? No? Oops…gotta stone you.

  76. Peter Barnett

    Lori Wolf You recognized my logic and tried to stray from it. I NEVER said women have no control over their bodies. What I DID say is that women are not allowed to kill innocent children in their wombs. Rape or not is not the point. Emotions don't tie in. Yes, I know they are their and I KNOW that they hurt! I know that if someone were to be raped it would be horrendous, and I believe that the person who did it should get life in prison. It is a horrible and disgusting act. But you don't "fix" the problem by murdering the child. The child's right to life trumps the mother's right to privacy. The Founding Fathers understood that and that is why they put the basic rights in the most important order. "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness". You can not have liberty and pursuit of happiness without life. You cannot have pursuit of happiness without life and liberty. The baby's right to life is more important than the mother's right to privacy. Period.

  77. Peter Barnett

    Teri Vassino Wow….I mean I've heard bad logic but that is just ridiculous.

    1. About 50% of babies aborted are male.
    2. It is our child as well.
    3. 9 MALE supreme court justices were involved in the case of Roe v. Wade and 7 MALE justices made the decision that abortion should be legal.If men don't have a say, then you totally just contradicted your argument.

  78. Cathy Neiman

    First of all, I love Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, and the Bible is the true Word of God. I try my hardest to treat others the way I want to be treated (from Jesus' instructions). I am a sinner, just like everyone else in this world, but because ( "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16), I know that whoever believes this will have eternal life.

    I am a recovering alcoholic, have gay friends, friends that have engaged in adultery and fornication, drug addicts, liars, cheaters, friends that have had abortions, killers, child molesters (I worked in a prison), atheists, hateful people, people that go to church every week that don't even believe in God but go for show – on and on… AGAIN, we are ALL sinners that need Jesus. Kirk is correct – this is a sin – listed in the Bible with all the other ones listed above as well as many others..

    As a true Christian and sinner, I agree that we need to all be aware of the truth of sin. Anything that is contrary to God's teaching is sin. You can't call it anything else – SIN IS SIN. God has taught us through His Word that we need to love each other and pray for each other because we need Him in our lives to survive the temptations and evil of this world.

    We should embrace everyone because we are true Christians, but that doesn't mean that we should not tell them the truth just like we should be told the truth about sin. The reason God gives us this instruction is because sin causes us pain and hurts us. At least think about it. God bless all of you.

  79. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Janis Ireland I am not gay but I know and love people who are as well. I also know and love people who think it's sinful. Why is it anyone who thinks being gay is wrong is secretly gay? Because you think that's the best way to detract from what they say and make it irrelevant? Get off!

  80. Lisa Brewster

    Janis Ireland .. Can you back what you are saying with proof?

  81. Sandra Brown

    God says it's a sin If he had meant for the same sexes to be married he would have made only men and no female or females and no men

  82. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Terry North How can anything be determined at conception if it's nothing more than a blob of cells? It's not even considered a human being until it is born?

  83. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Libby Hampton Because they feel the need to attack and obliterate anyone who won't throw their believe on the fire of political correctness.

  84. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Terry North Obama is a disaster, he doesn't have the knowledge or the skills it takes to help this country. All he's doing is making the changes he wants and then he'll leave the mess for whoever takes over from him. I just hope he doesn't get another 4 years of trashing this country.

  85. Janis Ireland

    Paula Qualls Gurley I thought he was gay way back when he was on the sitcom. Many people did. Everyone that I know has thought he was gay from way back. And it was well known that people thought he went ultra Christian to hide the fact he was gay. No, not all gay haters are gay. But some of the most vindictive anti gay evangelists were actually gay and it caught up with them. I believe Cameron is gay. and to me that is not an awful thing….it is only awful if he is gay…..and is gay bashing. If you read what I wrote, I said that I always thought he was gay years before he became a super Christian. To me, saying someone is gay is not an accusation….it seems to you….. saying someone was gay is the worst thing that someone could say about a person….even though "you aren't gay and you too love people who are". Then why be rude to me if we both know and love gay p eople……and tell me to GET OFF!!!! I don't think you even know a gay person due to the end of your rant.

  86. Autumn Rosengren

    Lisa Brewster – Could not have said it better myself!

  87. Janis Ireland

    Lisa Brewster Paul was talking to a certain congregation, not all congregations, just a certain one, where new people to the faith did not know how to behave in church. In this particular meeting, there were women who were asking questions and he wrote and told them to be quiet during prayers etc. Most people know this who have studied the epistles that Paul wrote. It was to one congregation telling women to not talk, it was not a letter written to all congregations and it was not meant to be a rule for all people of all times

  88. Lisa Brewster

    Remember when making a comment about being gay was contriversial? now Kirk saying something about not standing for gays is contriversial. The truth is the same today as it was 4000 years ago. People can like it or not, but it doesn't change the fact of the truth.

  89. Janis Ireland

    As far as gay marriage goes….what gay people want is all the rights everyone else has in marriage. ie to be able to inherit from each other, to be counted as a loved one and a spouse when their partner is in the hospital. So many vindictive families who have not talked to the gay person in decades prevent their loved one from being in the hospital or at the funeral. They should receive the same benefits that all spouses are entitled to with insurance etc. There are countless ways that gays are discriminated against. They want a federal law. It is wonderful that states are passing these laws, but where other people get SS benefits if a spouse dies…gay people do not. It is not just about property etc but gay people are prevented from receiving many many things heterosexual couples take for granted. Insurance, being able to receive insurance benefits is also another thing they are prevented from receiving. And if you think these things are not important. then why don't you give up all the married rights you have. Anyone can live together. Gay people want to have the same rights that everyone else has.s The right to marry, be a couple , a family and be treated like everyone else. They pay the same taxes, but cannot get the benefit of the taxes they pay ie social security and health care.

  90. Lisa Brewster

    Janis Ireland Don't you know that there is ONE church? one congregation? U think people add me to the church? or does God add me? If Paul says women are to be silent and have no authority over a man, then its for all women in the church. You have not studied well. you have to see the whole , not parts.

  91. Jennifer Williams

    Peter Barnett, how do your feelings about Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness inform your thoughts on LGBT rights? Just curious.

  92. Lynn Trobaugh

    You go girl!!! I agree a million per cent!!! And I couldn't have said it any better my self!!!. Wherever person finds love is a beautiful thing!!

  93. Jennifer Williams

    Yes, we're all aware that that's what the Christian bible says, and Kirk is certainly welcome to his opinion. What the rest of us need to do, however, is keep YOUR personal convictions, and Kirk's, and others like you, from influencing CIVIL LAW. And we're doing quite well. Things can only get better, the more people wake up.

  94. Janis Ireland

    Lisa Brewster I believe he is gay like I believed Liberace was gay. I thought it was known by everyone. And I don't go around thinking if people are gay or not. I am saying that I believe he is gay. My personal opinion. And most people thought when he became super Christian talk show person and started talking against homosexuality…that he was trying not to be gay….just like he says…if you are gay you should not act on it…and I believe he sincerely is trying to NOT act on being gay. His choice. I only get to have an opinion if he is bashing gays and he is being hypocritical. Time will tell. I thought everyone knew. Like they know rosie O' was gay. she didn't tell people, at first, but everyone just knew….Just like Elleln.

  95. Lisa Brewster

    People are not born gay. Its a choice they make. God cannot even be around sin. Thats why he turned from Jesus when he hung on the cross, because he had taken all of our sins into himself. God did not make anyone born that way.

  96. Jennifer Williams

    A THIEF, or a MURDERER, or anyone else people like you try to use as an analogy to a homosexual, is inflicting their will on someone else who doesn't want to be robbed or murdered. What those of us who recognize the inherent dignity of all human beings believe is that people who are exercising their NATURAL, GENETIC sexual orientation have NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU, OR ANYONE ELSE, and it is NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

  97. Diana Messer

    Debby Brown-Vedder That's right folks let's bring the book of babble into it. A book that was written by MEN. A book that was written during a time when woman were property, when it was okay to stone a woman to death, and beat children. It's not the word of God it's the word of MAN! Written by men for men.

  98. Lisa Brewster

    Janis Ireland .. i see what you are saying with Rosie and Ellen. I never got that vibe from Kirk, but then again i didn't really like that show too much. IF he is trying not to be gay, thats good. That would be his demon to deal with. I can't really see that he would be gay though and thats just my own opinion. He is very strong in his faith, not just about homosexuality, but in all areas.

  99. Lisa Brewster

    Jennifer Williams .. like i said like it or not the truth is the same today as it was 4000 years ago. doesn't matter what anyone else says.

  100. Amanda Williams

    Praise God an actor in willing to stand up for his beliefs. For what is right and for what the Bible says. Outdated hardly! and you cares if it offended the glaad so he was not personally condemning you he was simply stating the facts. I believe God loves all of us he just don't like our sins.

  101. Peter Barnett

    Jennifer Williams Wow. That seriously was a great question. Because coming from the perspective as it looks, it seems as if I would entirely support LGBT rights. Obviously I don't. The problem results from my lack of specificity above. I should have clarified that there are certain exemptions. I don't mean to say this as a form of "backing out" of the argument. It was my fault and I apologize for not being as specific. As you go down the line, more and more exemptions fall into place. For example, in Life, I believe there are EXTREMELY few exemptions. I personally believe a lot less than others would for religious reasons, but the basic ones remain (I can go into more detail if you like, but to stay on the topic of LGBT….). In liberty, we obviously have people who exempt themselves from these rights by committing crimes and (other sorts of things). In the P.O.H, we see people exempting themselves by committing crimes (putting themselves in prison) and by not trying to succeed, therefore not actively pursuing happiness. Now where does LGBT tie in? I think we would both agree that it ties in to liberty and P.O.H. Life? Maybe. We'll stick to the other two. I'll first explain why it is wrong, and then how it ties in. (I use LGBT grammatically very loosely in the following….i use it as a noun….adjective…maybe even a verb….so bear with me…)

    Ok. So LGBT. The problem lies in the source of what marriage is. For thousands of years, it has been termed a man and a woman together. When we enter into the idea of LGBT, we ultimately begin down a slippery slope of what is and what is not "ok". Have you ever seen the show "My Strange Addiction"? The title explains the show. One man is "in love" with his car. Can he marry it? What about a cat? Or the Eiffel Tower? Or the sun? Where do we stop? How can WE define marriage? You might say that I am defining marriage, but I am simpy following what has been for thousands of years.

    Now how does this tie in? There are restrictions on liberty and pursuit of happiness. If someone was to enjoy doing marijuana frequently, should they be allowed to because it makes them happy? No! That's why we have laws. But regardless, we are still allowed to pursue things that are legal and "ok". (Regardless of whether or not you agree with marijuana being illegal is not the point…not accusing….just saying it's the example that counts). Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness must have restrictions. We have "strange addictions" sometimes, but we can't ALWAYS pursue them.

    Sorry for all the parentheses.

    I hope that answered your question fully. I left a lot of information out so I wouldn't consider this the best argument myself. But it's the best I can do without being overly lengthy….which I already am.

  102. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Janis Ireland You are wrong, I have 2 gay family members. I wonder why you sit around wondering who is gay? I didn't know you could tell by looking at someone on TV. Is there a mark I'm missing….some tell tale sign? I think HE would be offended to be called gay. His sister is a Christian who is particular about the roles she takes as well, is she gay? Did you and everyone you knowthink she is gay as well? Calling him gay when he just made public his opinion seems to be attacking his position from a different angle. He didn't go on Piers Morgan show to talk about this, but Mr. Morgan insisted on talking about it. I just find it so ironic (read hypocritical" that the same folks complaining about intolerance have no tolerance for those on the other side of the issue. Just because he doesn't share your opinion doesn't mean he's a hater or a phony.

  103. Aimee Boswell

    So just a question for those of you who despise homosexuality. Why would you NOT support gay marriage? I mean, if you are so disgusted on how someone ELSE lives THEIR lffe, why would you not want them to live in sin and be an abomination in the eyes of YOUR god. That way in your tiny cold little heart you could nestle with the thought of all gays burning in hell and never ever being in heaven. Because god forbid that you have a gay person chatting you up on a cloud in eternity. :-o

  104. Davelyn ViewBell

    The Bible is not written by God. It is written by man, 325 yrs after Christ. Even though I am Christian, I know the history behind it. Most of what is said in the bible is true to this day. But even women are treated poorly. Just like in 325 AD. The bible includes statements from bigots and men who were actually afraid of women. Being Gay is natural. Natural meaning nature like. I have seen male dogs on each other , cats, reptiles, birds and fish. yes it is natural. nature like and we are human and part of the animal kingdom ourselves. Being Gay is not a choice. people are born Gay and hallelujah to all homosexuals that are free to be themselves. If you think Gay is a sin, how about Judging your fellow brother. No Sin is greater than any other. Don "t do God's job! love each other for who you are and move on already.

  105. Davelyn ViewBell

    Lisa Brewster lisa, Jesus said, He who is without sin, cast the first stone. Do you think you are that person? I know I am not. I love my neighbor, Gay or Straight. It is not my job to accuse and judge. If God was so hellbent against Gay individuals then why did he allow them to be born that way, Huh? oh and they are born Gay. would you choose to be Gay with all the meanness and the cruel and bigoted things People who claim to be Christian inflict on you. The harassment, the shame, the alienation of families, and the violence??? I don't think so. it's not a choice and it can't be changed. Individuals claiming they were once Gay, but are now in heterosexual relationships are lying to themselves and living a nightmare. They are also doing a disservice to their straight partner, because eventually it will all fall apart. Good for you living the so called Christian life.
    Now let go of your hatred of people who are different. If you think its sinful. hate the sin, love the sinner.
    God sees all sin as the same. none is worse than the other. Can you really cast that stone?
    C

    Debby Brown-Vedder does yoru father, husband or brother cut their sideburns.. If so they to are an abomination. Leviticus 19:27 reads "You shall not round off the side-growth of your heads nor harm the edges of your beard." Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads "You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you." Ever eat a ham sandwich, baby back ribs or have you ever touched a real football….yes? SINNER!!!!! I have another for you, Leviticus 19:19 reads, "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together." The Bible doesn't want you to wear polyester. Not just because it looks cheap. It's sinfully unnatural. Check the tag on your shirt right now. Didn't realize you were mid-sin at this exact second, did you?
    The Bible is very clear on this one: No divorcing. You can't do it. Because when you marry someone, according to Mark 10:8, you "are no longer two, but one flesh." And, Mark 10:9 reads, "What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."

    Mark gets even more hardcore about it a few verses later, in Mark 10:11-12, "And He said to them, 'Whoever divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her; and if she herself divorces her husband and marries another man, she is committing adultery.'" So to be favorable in the eyes of your lord, no divorcing even if you husband beats you and has sex with ever 18 year old he finds, YOU can never divorce and certainly never remarry.
    Deuteronomy 23:1 reads (this is the God's Word translation, which spells it out better), "A man whose testicles are crushed or whose penis is cut off may never join the assembly of the Lord."

    Oh, and the next verse says that if you're a bastard, the child of a bastard… or even have a great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandchild of a bastard, you can't come to church or synagogue either. Deuteronomy 23:2 reads, "No one of illegitimate birth shall enter the assembly of the Lord; none of his descendants, even to the tenth generation, shall enter the assembly of the Lord."
    Leviticus 11:10 reads, "But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you." And shellfish is right in that wheelhouse.

    And I have saved the best for last. The fact that this is ACTUALLY taking up room in your sacred bible (SMH)

    "If two men, a man and his countryman, are struggling together, and the wife of one comes near to deliver her husband from the hand of the one who is striking him, and puts out her hand and seizes his genitals, then you shall cut off her hand; you shall not show pity."

    That's impossible to misinterpret. Ladies, if your husband is getting mugged, make sure to kick the mugger in the pills. Do not do the grip and squeeze (no matter what "Miss Congeniality" might advise). Or your hand needs to be cut off.

    REALLY!!????? And you guys are fixated on the OTHER STUFF?? PULEESE.

    Paula Qualls Gurley oh man, I bet you watch
    Fox news to get your info. Wake up Honey, Bush Dropped a landslide on this country. Causing a huge Tsunami like effects. The Wave went out on him and unfortunately came back on PRESIDENT Obama, yes his title is PRESIDENT! . President Obama went to Columbia University and Harvard. You want to talk about who left the mess. It would be George Bush Seniors Screwed up, Dropped out, EX druggie and recovering Alcoholic son. Notice Ex-president Bush Jr, never gets any speaking engagements, never speaks at college commencement exercises, It is because he is dumb, and he is the reason we are where we are today!!!

    I am actually appalled at the amount of people backing him up here.
    Please, watch this video, at least try and understand how this makes people in the LGBT community feel.

    I'm sure many of you are very nice people, but I under no circumstances (along with millions of others) do not deserve this. We have done nothing against you personally. So why do you attack us? If it seems wrong in your mind, why do you feel the need to pursue your beliefs unto us? We aren't attempting to make you homosexual. So why try to make us straight?

    You people are the reason suicide rates have sky rocketed, and I hope you are satisfied with the blood on your hands.

    I am religious, and I am Gay. But I am not weak, and I will not succumb to your hate and injustice.

    Davelyn ViewBell Actually I get my news from a variety of sources because yes, Fox is baised…so is CNN and MSNBC. I am neither Republican nor Democrat….I choose the best man from any party. Yes, Bush made a mess, and Obama made it worse.
    He has an agenda and that is his primary goal, and taking care of anything else just doesn't interest him.

  111. Bill Kenny

    People ARE Born gay…It is NOT a choice…Where do you get 4000 years? You can not help who you are attracted to… I find your truths to be quite "convenient" God can not be around sin? Is God not everywhere? He is in my heart and I have sinned… I am not gay… I am married to a wonderful women and I live my life treating others in a manner in which I myself would like to be treated… BUT I do NOT tell other people how they should live their lives or condemn them for the choices that they make or for things that they have no control over.. If you are born attracted to your same sex… Your two choices are really either to act on your feelings or live your life ALONE! This is MY belief.. You are welcome to believe in whatever you wish…

  112. Rey Rios

    I AGREE with Cameron. The evolution of nature itself denotes that homosexuality is not natural. If it were natural. That means, Men can easily become pregnant by other men as natural as women can. But naturally, that is not the case. Even when a man has a complete sex change. Still unnatural. Still no cigar! Who can refute the healthy balanced order of nature? However, I do agree that it is a person's right to be gay if they so choose. Especially, if a man chooses to coitally align himself with another man's rectum. That is his unnatural prerogative. Just don't complain when the man toots! And don't be mad cause I say this! Because, if nature had a voice. It would certainly voice something much similar to what I have said. Rock on! Cameron!

  113. Will Gallagher

    No wonder the Christian community is receiving less and less credibility. It's almost like a bandwagon for stars to jump on after burning out their noses in dressing rooms and after parties.

  114. Tina Ferguson-Davis

    Why is it so difficult, in any part of the world, to be a Christian? As humans, each of us have a set of values that we believe in, morals that we live by and yet it seems that only those of a Christian faith get blasted into outer space for expressing them? Piers asked questions, Kirk answered them. Or at least tried to when he wasn't being interrupted, as so many interviewers do; particularly when not getting the response they want.
    I believe in the Holy Bible, as the word of God and it defines what is right and wrong. It says that Homosexuality is a sin. Now why am I wrong to believe that if MY Bible tells me that? It says abortion is wrong. So again, why am I wrong to believe that? There are many different religions in this world, all of which tell the followers this and that/such and such and in faith they follow those beliefs. Why is it that only those of the Christian faith seem to be blasted for following our teachings?
    Why is it that the needs of the one out way the needs of the many? How is it that one person can deteremine that pledging alliegance to a flag must be removed from schools, while many believe in the words of the pledge? Why is it that a Valedictorian cannot express thankfulness to Jesus Christ in their speech and yet we are supposed to be a nation that holds free speech so dear? Why is it so hard for others to respect a Christians right to free speech, but all other religions are afforded that right? Burn a Koran and the President apologizes, but burn a Bible or our flag and I don't hear an apology from any other leader. People are killed for burning a Koran, but NOT my Bible. Guess which book I would rather believe in?

  115. Tina Ferguson-Davis

    Sometimes in life we just have to agree to disagree. Whether one believes in what Kirk has to say or not, doesn't really matter. It is his right to express it, especially if he is asked a direct question. We all know he is a Christian, so who was really so surprised??

    Peter Barnett, no, to the contrary–I expected that you would *not* support LGBT rights, given your stance on abortion. In my experience I have often found that it shakes out just that way in terms of demographics, that Pro-life people are often anti-LGBT rights.

    I've just never understood the irony and hypocrisy of that position, but I understand that it all comes down to what an individual from what ever side of the issue views as the definition of LIFE, LIBERTY, and POH, what's a choice and what's just who and what people *are*, etc.

    The bit about "exemptions" was interesting, and may actually be the crux of the matter–who gets to decide what the exemptions are? I'm not talking about what you get to believe. Your beliefs are up to you, as long as they don't infringe on the rights of others, in my opinion.

    Also, the bit about what marriage has been historically isn't really true. Historically, marriage has been what ever a given culture in a given time considered the most advantageous for the health and welfare of the culture, and served the needs of its citizens best. At some points in place and time, that has been one man with as many wives as he could afford. At others, matriarchal societies where men and women lived separately and only came together for the purposes of procreation, and only when the women desired it. And many cultures, all over the world, have had places in their family formulations for people with non-traditional sexual orientations and gender identities. To equate the love and interaction between two people of the same gender with mental disorders in which people believe they are in love with inanimate objects is beyond the pale in my opinion, and hard for me to dignify with a rebuttal.

    Unfortunately, there's a lot about your position that is evidently informed by your personally held faith, which, in my opinion, isn't a rational faith, and has no place in making laws that are meant to govern and represent everyone. And since I find it based in irrationality, I can't really try to offer a reasonable rebuttal except for what I've offered above.

    Feel free to reply if you like–it'll be good to have this here for posterity–but I likely won't be back to this conversation. It seems pretty pointless to argue this stuff, really. And I've done so so many times. As long as a person feels that religion has a right to impose itself on civil matters, the only place it's really worthwhile to remark on these issues is at the polls.

    Good day to you.

  119. Ruth B Patterson

    The real war is in the spiritual realm Tina, satan just plays it out here on Earth. Other religions are false…they are religions..but Christianity is supposed to be like a relationship with Christ. Satan hates that, and, since Christianity is true, he attacks Christians. That is why they suffer for their faith the most..but then, I'm not telling your anything you don't already know :)

  120. Lisa Brewster

    Davelyn ViewBell If you know the Bible was written by men, then you should also know that they were under Gods control (influence) as to what they wrote. They could not pass on the abilities and it died with with them. Do you honestly think that God will let all of our lives go for nothing, if there was no chance those men weren't gonna get it right? I am absolutely positive that God is smart enough to get that part right since he spoke us into existance. We all need to have faith and trust God to give us what we need. ohh and animals are one thing, humans have a brain that they can use to decide right from wrong. we are not ruled by nature, our brains can override that. so yes it is a choice to be gay. God doesn't make a person gay.

  121. Rey Rios

    Janis Ireland; I agree. I came to the knowledge of Christ bcuz a woman preached to me. I thank God she was not silent. Furthermore, the women St Paul was rebuking were urban loud and obnoxious out of order drama queens that had no reverence for God's word. Heck I would of also told them to zip it.

  122. Brian Patten

    Janis Ireland It kinda sucks when the Bible is misinterpreted against a group of people now doesn't it? Women have been treated horribly thoughout Christianity by men and they of all people should be more forgiving to others.

  123. Nicole Dye Van Damme

    David Ramirez : AMEN!! How is it that those who "preach" tolerance have the LEAST tolerance for those of us who speak out about our Biblical, conservative beliefs?

  124. Joe Goatherder

    Kirk, you are a man's man. You are not afraid of what people think, you fear what God thinks. When God judges the world and America for its sins, you will be example of someone who made a difference. Romans Chapter 1 and Leviticus 18 clearly define what God thinks, the problem is the world is a opposed to God.

    God will show the world what He thinks real soon.

  125. Joe Goatherder

    Janis Ireland …so what if you know gay people…you are a "Hetro-phobe" you are intolerant Bigot of people who disagree with you.

  126. Amy Curtis

    In response to the recent media "tar & feather" attacks, spurred on by GLAAD: Kirk Cameron, is a classy guy — as he is also intelligent. He's entitled to his own set of beliefs and opinions, just as we all are. And, just because seven states are for it — doesn't mean everyone is, or should be. What is idiotic — is when some people disagree with others, they're automatically labeled as being a "zealot, idiot, hater, hypocrite, etc…" — while expressing their personal views, and taking a stand on their core values of life.

  127. Anonymous

    Lisa Brewster Women can preach! We are all called to preach the Gospel! They cannot be a pastor of a church as it states in the Bible.

  128. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Davelyn ViewBell If people who are gay have a right to live their lives without being bashed, bullied or discriminated against (which I agree with), why don't those who believe it is wrong have a right to their opinion? I have not seen anything where Kirk Cameron was out picketing, carrying sign or in any way trying to inflict his opinion in any way. He was on a show and the host was determined to get him to answer this question publically. He was honest, he also admitted he is not free of sin. He never claimed their sin was any worse than anyone else's……but that's not good enough, is it? Either everyone agrees with you or they are evil! What a bunch of hypocritical whores you are.

  129. Greg Karels

    Ruth is right. Our battle isn't against flesh and blood. It would be funny if it weren't so sad that the liberals for the life of them don't have the wisdom to see what Christians are saying about homosexuality. To us it's not different the the adulterer. We love the sinner, not the sin. And for them to even suggest that we are "haters" etc. is simply them just lying to themselves to try to justify their intolerance………….Classic liberals.

  130. Darlene Behn

    Janis Ireland, Christians should not have to compromise for anyone. He has a right to stand on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

  131. Steve Tschannen

    Janis Ireland LMAO. Where some people come up with such ideas about people is beyond me. The man simply states he does not believe in gay marriage and that gay behavior is destructive, which by the way it is. Don't be maiking claims that Cameron is gay. You have no clue. Besides what person in theri "RIGHT" mind would claim they are gay anyway!!! LOL

  132. Tim Bachicha

    Thanks Cathy, for putting into words what a lot of us forgiven sinners know to be the truth. If it were not for God's grace and love, expressed fully in Christ's sacrifice on the cross, we would have no hope at all. And contrary to what some might think our behavior should be, we are to be salt and light. I really appreciate how Kirk Cameron handles thos, without condescending, or trying to say the "right thing". Speaking the truth in love. Goddexample for me!

  133. Lisa Brewster

    women teach children as God says to do. Once those children reach a certain age, men of the church take over that teaching. You really want to think you have studied the Bible well, when its painfully obvious you haven't. Pray to God and ask him to lead you to the truth.

  134. Lisa Brewster

    EWWW did you have to be so graphic?? i almost threw up!

  135. Lisa Brewster

    Finally people that make sense!! We all know Satan doesn't have to work to get those that are not in the church, he already has them. So its always Christians that will be attacked. God assures us that good will win out in the end. We have to put on our spiritual armor and be ready for those that attack. People don't understand that we are standing up for something that is right. Truly right. When people push to make something that is clearly a sin, legal, then thats different. Next they will ask to make incest legal. We don't murder legal, or theft legal. Why make homosexual marriage legal? They see it as we hate them. I think it will never end, but all of this just fullfills Gods word. He said it would be like this in the end days. What is right will be wrong and what is wrong will be right.

  136. Lisa Brewster

    That statement is obsurd. Sin will not enter heaven.

  137. Joan Wilcox

    I also commend Cameron for standing up for what is right, Janis there is nothing that doesn't, say you can't love a sinner you just don't love the sin ar a prove of the sin that is committed. Jesus loved sinners but didn't approve of the sin

  138. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Davelyn ViewBell That is your opinion. I don't judge the person, but I can judge actions. Don't quote. I find it ironic that you choose to quote from such a book you claim is so flawed. You don't want anyone else to tell people how to live, then don't tell others how to.

  139. Peter Barnett

    Jennifer Williams Well by exemptions I meant those who exempt themselves. For example, people who commit crimes exempt themselves of the right to be free as they are then sent to prison. No one would argue that criminals shouldn't be put in jail. They exempt themselves. Now I'm not saying being homosexual is a crime. But likewise, they exempt themselves from the POH when concerning marriage. And that's not to sound harsh or hate speech. It's simply the truth as described by what the definition of marriage is.

    And I might care to elaborate on your thoughts about the history of marriage. While yes, some cultures did have different ways of performing marriage, it was always strictly male and female. Whether polygamy, or ancient Egypt, or anything, it has always been a man and a woman. No society ever promoted gay marriage…and if they did….well let's just say they aren't around now because they probably didn't have much posterity to continue on. And I don't think that's how we want America to end.

    And I think my logic on people loving objects was completely logical. But to soften the argument, what if a person loved their dog? I mean a dog is animate, reacts to stimulus, and can "love" it's owner. Is it ok to marry your dog?

  140. Peter Barnett

    Susan Elizabeth Kitchen Ritzer sigh…..your logic fails yourself. Because I do recall it being seven people that couldn't get pregnant that made the decision in Roe v. Wade….:/

  141. Terry North

    Paula Qualls Gurley, go online and read ALL he has done, at least he didnt start an unnecessary war with a country that did NOTHING to us!!!! He needed a scapegoat for 9-11 and went after Iraq and its leader and killed thousands in the interim, for, an UNNECESSARY war, not to mention the trillions of dollars it cost. Obama went after the RIGHT man and got him!!!!!! Among other things. Go to Google and type in, what has Obama done for our country during his presedency, dont be afraid, read it, its all true! I am AMAZED at how stupid, ignorant, brainless people americans there are. Very sad.

  142. Linda Lemmons Turner

    Never confuse the will of the majority with the will of GOD. I love and work with gays, but I do not believe it is right. They know how I feel also. Hey maybe some day my actions will impower them to see the truth.

  143. Peter Barnett

    Shane Michael Coffey …..are you kidding me? Wooooow….I mean really? Hello! There's the "new law" created by Jesus Christ! wow….

  144. Shane Michael Coffey

    Peter Barnett So where did the hatred of gays come from. Oh yea that would be the old testament.

  145. Peter Barnett

    Shane Michael Coffey New Testament: Romans 1:27 —In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.—–

    Well that just got awkward….

  146. Peter Barnett

    And no I don't hate gays. I just don't believe they shouldn't be allowed to marry.

  147. Shane Michael Coffey

    Peter Barnett Well you stated your case…and here is mine. There is no such thing as gay marriage, there is only marriage. I am married to a wonderful woman. We were married by a Justice of the Peace. Marriage may be against the bible (of which I am not a l believer of fairy tales) but nowhere in the Constitution is the word God or religion in it. The Constitution is a secular document that covers all of its citizens, including gay folks. Equal protection under the law is first and foremost a foundation of this country. Just like in the past when ignorant religious people used the bible to prevent interracial marriage the whole "gay marriage" ban by religious people will fail. I get so sick of religious folks always trying to relegating people in this country as second class citizens. Ignorance breeds ignorance…I for one hope for the day when the church doesn't dictate the narrative in this country. We will be so much better off.

  148. Rick Tait

    Debby Brown-Vedder and Lisa Brewster et al, i don't understand how on one hand you can say "read the Bible" with a straight face, because the Bible has at least six definitions of marriage

    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-OcwX9ra6I2U/Th1lx8axKoI/AAAAAAAAAE4/NJmCDr_0cMQ/s1600/tumblr_lngrggGcr91qf3unso1_1280.jpg

    for example, the Bible states that a rape-victim must marry her rapist (Deuteronomy 22:28). i'm sure you wouldn't openly espouse such insane views, but that IS the word of God (its in the Bible after all). so why don't we adhere to that Rule of God too? it's old fashioned, right? times change, right?

    guess what. you can't pick and choose the Rules of God that apply to your own personal view of morality. you think its terrible and wrong for people to want to be in homosexual relationships and to be happy in them.

    well, i personally think its terrible and wrong for hardline religious people to want to force a woman who was RAPED to carry to term a pregnancy. your desire to force a pregnant rape victim to carry that baby to term is RE-RAPING the rape victim, every single day for 9 months.

    such christian love. Jesus would be so proud.

  149. Rick Tait

    @Debby brown-Vedder / @Lisa Brewster:

    The Bible also says that rapists must marry their rape victims and pay 50 silver shekels to the rape victim's father. Do you both personally believe that THIS Word of God must also be obeyed? If not, then I would like to know why the Word of God via the Bible is so selectively used (and abused) to help support particular moral standpoints.

    From my perspective (Quaker) it appears that highly religious people just pick and choose whatever sections or chapters that support their own moral position, and then completely ignore other Words of God that are also in the very same Bible.

    I'm not attacking, this is a genuine question. I just don't understand how you can say "Look! The Bible says in Leviticus and Kings and Romans that marriage should only ever be between a man and a woman" but then completely ignore other marriage-related Words of God in the Bible.

    I'd like to hear your opinion.

    Deuteronomy 22:28-29
    28 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found;
    29 Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.

  151. Rick Tait

    Debby Brown-Vedder well that's great, and i will look and have a read of those, but you still didn't answer my question as to how you can justify picking-and-choosing only the Words of God that suit a particular moral position.

    Terry North I have seen what Obama is doing to this country. Yes, he's done some good things, and he's also done bad things. You are right, there are a lot of stupid, ignorant, brainless americans. That is why Obama is President.

  154. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Rick Tait What you "forgot" was that was if she was in the city, and could scream so that others could rescue her. If it was in a deserted area, and she was raped, her rapist was to be put to death.

  155. Rick Tait

    Paula Qualls Gurley I'm not sure what you mean, also I'm not sure if that is relevant to the world of today? What if a woman were to be raped in say, a basement apartment from which no sound emanates? If no-one were to witness or "hear" the rape, does it diminish the rape? Of course it doesn't, neither should it.

  156. Rey Rios

    Lisa Brewster …sorry Lisa. I feel the need to reveal what others in their chosen lifestyle conveniently leave out. I notice many groups in unbiblical lifestyles choose to reveal how offended they really are along with how politically incorrect we as Christians behave. So I inturn, I guess would like to expose why this lifestyle in particular is for certain unnatural by using the very healthy use and balance of our biological system in its true nature as evidence. EXHIIBIT A

  157. Rey Rios

    All sin is ugly. Finding unnatural love is a beautiful thing?!? full of rainbows?!? No, lets be real. a man finding love in another man may often times find residue of waste material instead. Why call this natural? why call it beautiful?

    Dawn Busse Korak….I have no idea what you mean. I am a complete supporter of LBTG and PFLAG. I don't have a token gay friend. I have a life full of all kinds of people, some of them gay. I believe in gay marriage. God made people straight and gay alike. I am upset that some straight people want to deny gay people the right to marry. Please read all my posts on this subject. I think you have misunderstood what i wrote. I think Cameron has a right to his opinion, but not a right to bash gays if he himself is gay.

  164. Paula Qualls Gurley

    Janis Ireland He didn't bash anyone! He was asked his opinion, and he stated it. He also said that he himself is not perfect. He dildn't judge anyone, he stated his opinion. Is stating an opiniion bashing?

    "The natural man cannot receive the things of the spirit, neither can he know them, for they are spiritually understood" A conversation about moral values between a believer and non believer is most likely not going to end well…..There are two frames of reference, "the world" and "the Word", as Kurt was trying to tell Piers. Kurt's not bashing anyone, as are those who disagree with his opinion.

    Jose Montana i said he is entitled to opinion which i believe i stated. but you said he was right as if you agreed and personally i think his opinion christian or not is antiquated and closeminded. and so not me! Right…to each its own! I am allowed my opinion just the same

    Jose Montana and sometimes opinions that are made public are meant for scrutiny. a man in his position is aware of it. He happens to be a brilliant and charitable businessman…I know because my vendor/customer just recently worked for him but the company folded…moms.com I think

    I didn't say a homosexual is a theif or murderer. I was saying that God set te rules and He doesn't want ANYBODY in Heaven who is not repentant

    I absoluetly love how Kirk allowed God to use him in this interview. He responded exactly in the way the Holy Spirit led him to. The response you gave on the inquisitor web page was hilarious! Thanks for sharing this! It really brings into spective how the world really does view this topic: being led by their feelings. Of course people that don't have an understanding to not be led by emotions won't understand why christians believe that gay marriage is 'unnatual'.

    Rick Tait … i never said i would force a woman to carry a baby from rape. Its her decision, even if killing is wrong. I personally wouldn't kill a child. circumstances of the conception doesn't make it any less of a human baby. I can't force anyone to do anything. As for the Bible, if YOU would read and know the bible as you think you do, then you would know that the old testament is the old law. we are under the new law, being the new testament. So for you to pretend to be so knowledgeable in the Word, you really don't know much about it. Jesus would be happy for us all to know the word better.

    Why is it that no one ever seems to touch upon the fact that the Bible was translated multiple times? No one still living on this earth was there when the Bible was written, so how can you possibly be sure that anything in it wasn't changed over time or misinterpreted by a translator?
