Kirk Cameron

Blasted by GLAAD

Over Gay Marriage Comments

3/3/2012 2:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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."

Look.... I'm for Prop8, but I also believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion. He is not physically hurting anyone it's just "his" opinion of gay marriages. Sometimes Glaad and PETA can be such bullies. He has a family to support... why hurt others just because you disagree.

THIS IS NO SURPRISE THAT THEY WILL BE MONITORING HIS BOOKINGS - HE IS A CHRISTIAN AND I AM A CHRISTIAN - AND HE IS CORRECT - THE BIBLE STATES CLEARLY ITS AN ABOMINATION UNTIL GOD - DOESNT MATTER IF YOU BELIEVE IT OR NOT - GOD SAID IT AND I BELIEVE IT - WE AS CHRISTIANS DO NOT HATE THE GAY PERSON - WE HATE THE SIN - AND ALWAYS PRAY FOR THEIR DELIVERANCE - HE WAS NOT HATING ON THE GAY PEOPLE - AND IT IS UNNATURAL - EVEN ANIMALS KNOW BETTER, NOT TO HOOK UP WITH THEIR OWN SEX - I RESPECT KIRK FOR STANDING FOR HIS CHRISTIAN VALUES AND THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS - AND HEY - MOST AMERICANS DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT THE GAY LIFESTYLE IS RIGHT - SO I DONT KNOW WHERE MEDIA GETS THEIR FACTS - BOTTOM LINE, ITS NOT RIGHT - GOD SAID IT AND I BELIEVE IT !!!

He's right! But on another point, GLAAD needs to respect others opinions just like they want people to respect theirs. It's very intolerant of them to be against anyone who doesn't agree with them. Ironic since they want everyone to tolerate their opinion

SO WHAT? Kirk's entitled to his opinion. Remember, this IS AMERICA!!! Just because YOU disagree with him doesn't entitle you to rip him apart! GROW UP!

Maybe I am missing something. I think all Kirk meant was that. It is not something he agrees with. Not that he judges what other people do. It was obvious when asked the question he did not want to respond. Everyone has the right to their own opinion.

Someone is misinformed.Or a liar. Or both. The VAST majority of americans DO NOT agree with glaad. That is the truth. Always remember, they cannot reproduce, so they must recruit. Disgusting miscreants is what they are. And since when is our right to disagree no longer a right? They always have to inject everything with hatred for anyone except for their own kind. Why? Because they are threatened by those not of their ilk. Ok enuff of my Sat am rambling.

GLADD is wrong when they say that the majority of people feel it is ok. Proud of Kirk for sticking by his beliefs.

I'm glad somebody sticks to their guns and their beliefs, even if somebody else don't like it. GLADD is bitching and complaining because of what somebody else thinks and believes? Maybe it should be Cameron complaining about what GLADD believes!

There only one straight answer to "what do you think about sex?" That is, "I don't."

What did GLAAD expect Kirk Cameron to say??? This can't be a big surprise to them. And as for GLAAD monitoring his bookings, the kinds of groups that hire Cameron agree with him, so they won't be swayed by a negative campaign against him.

He's a different cat, but he is right. Sex between in man and a woman is 100% normal and also it produces offspring.
Sex between two men you get your weiner full of someone elses ****. Whats the joy in that?

As for Tim Tebow. God does not watch football. Tebow can do his little display of prayer like the pharisee that he is. God could care less what rappers, athletes and hollywood stars do.

Kirk Cameron is a closeted self-loathing IRRELEVANT loser.

What would Kirk Cameron say if one of his kids said "Dad, I'm Gay"... Kirk would say "You're going to hell" you can just tell he is that much of a judgemental piece of ****

Do you want to know how it really works Kirk? First of all, you are NOT God, and far from it. There is only one God and He will do all the judging based on what's in your heart and soul.

Kirk is lower on the evolutionary journey, souls like his get a special re-incarnation next round as a gay man so they can see exactly how wrong they are.

Good for him for speaking out. All sex is a choice, and homosexuality is an unnatural and immoral sexual choice; nothing more. God loves us all, but that doesn't mean you get to do anything you want. It's ashame so many have been brainwashed into believing this is some great civil rights issue. It's not, live your life as you please, but don't expect people to condone your behavior. Stop tolerating everything and actually take a stand.

Kirk is right. Homosexuality is ultimately detrimental to mankind. Ultimately, it means extinction. And that, my homosexual little friends is detrimental.
