Kirk Cameron Defends Homophobic Comments

Kirk Cameron has came under fire this week after comments he made during an interview with Piers Morgan have labeled him homophobic.

Cameron is a born again evangelical christian who spoke out on ‘Piers Morgan Tonight’ claiming that homosexuality was “unnatural” and “detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilisation.”

Many gay rights advocated have fired off the typical response to Cameron and his comments, but some of the comments are hitting closer to home.  ‘Growing Pains’ co-stars Alan Thicke and Tracy Gold took to their respective Twitter pages to get their message out as well.

His ‘Growing Pains’ dad Thicke writes, “I’m getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can’t be expected to explain everything.”

His on screen sister, Gold, writes, “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all.”

Cameron has released a statement defending himself and his comments.  It reads;

“I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people. I should be able to express moral views on social issues. especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.”

Surely he has every right to speak his mind, regardless if one believes his opinions are outdated or not,  but if he can’t take the heat, he should stay out of the kitchen.

    You can’t speak out against a group of people and call them “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization” and expect them to be tolerant of that.  Fuck you.  I think that idea is destructive to socitey, so fuck you, Kirk Cameron.
