Oh, oops, I meant Kirk Cameron.
So this bit of news comes as no surprise to those of us familiar with this talentless hack’s ‘resume’:
'80s sitcom star turned religious activist Kirk Cameron is not a fan of homosexuality and he isn't shy about sharing his feelings on the subject.
Yeah, because 32 years later, people are still hanging on his every word. Sheesh!
During a new interview with Piers Morgan the "Growing Pains" heartthrob who transitioned from a "teen-idol-atheist in Hollywood and became a devoted follower of Jesus Christ in the middle of [his] career" explained that he believes homosexuality is "unnatural... I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."
So…the creator of the Crocoduck was a…an atheist? No, he was just a lazy thinker. As for the idea that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’, the latest tally is that 1500 species indulge in this behavior on a regular basis, so the sobriquet of ‘unnatural’ means that old Kook is still living in Imagination Land.
On the issue of marriage equality Cameron remarked, "Marriage was defined by God a long time ago. 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."
The old sorry-ass argument that ‘gawd said otherwise’ is as old and as tired as Camer-maroon. Imaginary sky daddies don’t define marriage – people do.
When asked what he would do if one of his six kids told him, "Dad, bad news, I'm gay," Cameron responded, "I'd sit down and I'd have a heart to heart with them, just like you'd do with your kids."
Christlation: “I am gonna PRAY the homosex-U-al day-mons outta you, boy! Get on your knees ay-and PRAY! Gawd’s gonna be wrathful, so you jist stop yore sinful ways!”
Morgan shot back, "I'd say, 'That's great, son! As long as you're happy.' What would you say?"
Cameron offered, "I wouldn't say 'That's great, son, as long as you're happy.' There are all sorts of issues we need to wrestle through in our life... Just because you feel one way doesn't mean we should act on everything we feel."
That’s advice you should’ve taken back when you became asshole buddies with Ray Comfort and started carting out incredibly stupid caricatures in your ‘spiritual battle’ with REAL science.
Really – why does this mook get any press at all? He was a child sitcom actor. He should get his own reality TV show…that is, when he actually comes into contact with it.
Either way, nobody’s seen him give up whatever ill-gotten gains he’s accreted over the decades to the poor.
This is just more proof that Hollywood and its denizens are the last place anyone should look for rationality. They specialize in fantasy, after all: small wonder so many of them retreat into a socially acceptable imaginary world.
Till the next post, then.
