Actor and born-again Christian Kirk Cameron came under fire again this week when he made a homophobic statement during an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan. Now the gay-right organization GLAAD is going after the “Growing Pains” star for comments they say “sound even more dated than his 1980s TV character.
During Friday nights talk show airing he said that not only does he not support gay marriage, he thinks homosexuality in general will destroy our very existence. According to Cameron:
“I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Speaking out against the actor turned activists comments Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD said in a public statement that Cameron is:
“Out of step with a vast 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 meantime GLAAD is now planning to monitor all of Kirk Cameron’s media bookings and his acting jobs so they can spread “the news [of his gay hate] and [make sure the] entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views.”
Every single time I hear Kirk Cameron spew more of his hate I nearly expected to see him standing with the members of the Westboro Baptist Church holding a “god hates fags” protest sign.
Do you think Kirk Cameron is a hateful person who has kept his celebrity alive by spreading hate in the name of Christianity?
