Nicole Johnson tells Kirk Cameron to grow up and drop the hate speech.
If you need a refresher, Kirk Cameron is best known for being a 1980’s teen heartthrob and star of the hit series “Growing Pains.” Presently, Cameron is back in the spotlight for his controversial comments about homosexuality and gay marriage.
Kirk Cameron, a father of six and a Born Again Christian, was a recent guest on the “Piers Morgan Tonight” show. When Piers Morgan asked Cameron about hot button social issues and if he supported gay marriage, Cameron had this to say about marriage:
“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.”
He then went on to explain his views about homosexuality:
“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.”
Kirk, grow up! Homosexuality is not “unnatural” and “destructive” to civilization. Civilizations would have crumbled centuries ago if homosexuality was “destructive” to humankind. Gay men and women are a beautiful, innate aspect of our world, our government, our military, our industries, et al.
Clearly, you are afraid of homosexuality and threatened by gay marriage. May I suggest educating yourself on these subjects before announcing any more of your absurdities to the media? Furthermore, I would schedule a meeting with an anti-defamation advocate from GLAAD as soon as humanly possible.
Kirk, I understand everyone in America has the freedom to exercise their First Amendment rights. Amen! However, here’s what I think is destructive to civilization: giving celebrities (popular and unpopular) a forum to express their irresponsible, offensive opinions. Perhaps you should call Rush Limbaugh and ask him for some crisis management tips…
