Kirk Cameron

Blasted by GLAAD

Over Gay Marriage Comments

Kirk Cameron's comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage are not sitting well with the folks at GLAAD ... who think the former "Growing Pains" star "sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character."

Cameron said during last night's show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general ... he said, "I think that it's ... unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, tells TMZ he feels Cameron, a Born Again Christian, 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."

A GLAAD spokesman says they plan on monitoring Cameron's media bookings and various acting gigs to ensure "the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views."

I think people are forgeting that he has the right to Express his own oppinion.. evin if he is very backwards in his way of thinking.. he is entitiled to Express what he thinks just like everyone here is entitled to Disagree with him... most of you forget that his last big thing was the Left behind Christian Movie Series... so in other words he has not had a big acting gig since the 1980's maybe if you ignore him he will go back to the cave under the bridge he came from

Cameron says what he believes to be the truth. Homosexuals don't like it and must silence him. They do this to him and others by labeling them as hateful and homophobic. The homosexuals won't debate; they'll marginalize and slander.

Maybe Cameron has a point...

The man is entitled to his opinion. This is still America the last time I checked. Maybe if gays stopped trying to force their beliefs on everyone there wouldn't be such a problem. GLAAD is just a bunch of extremists who if you don't agree with them they condemn you. They are like a bunch of gay Nazi's.

Though I do not support Kirk Cameron's views, he's entitled to his opinion and should share it when asked.

Good for Kirk for speaking truth. Too bad GLAAD can't accept it. For the record, he isn't condemning the people, he is condemning the action.

They are not born that way because the bible says marriage should be between a man and a woman they choose to be who they are if God intended them to be gay he would of made Adam and Steve not Adam and Eve. The bible even says a woman will leave her mother and father and become one with her husband .

I think it's wonderful that GLAAD is going to be "monitoring" him. It shows who the true bullies are.

Kirk is right, and contrary to the lies of GLAAD, the majority of America believes the same thing. Look at all of the gay marriage initiatives that have failed, only to be overturned by activist judges. Judges should never make the laws, only enforce the will of the people. Such a sad state of affair for this once great country.

Kirk Cameron is exactly right. He was discerning with his answers. Piers Morgan stated he would tell his son, if gay, 'That's great son, as long as your happy'.........I doubt that very much. OF COURSE Piers HAS to say something like that when asked as he would lose a big chunk of his TV following, many celebrity friends and probably his job. That doesn't mean he would really respond that way or even believes that way. God made the rules. They have not changed and never will. God loves homosexuals as much as He loves heterosexuals BUT as with any other sin, we ALL fall short in one way or another and there WILL be consequences for these type of actions and living styles!!!!
