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."

Dear Will, Did you just crawl out from under a rock? People are not born as Jews. That is a religion. Their raised and brought up through a Jewish household and religion, none as Judaism. OMFG you are so stupid. This is why gay people (including myself) are having to deal with people such as yourself to educate society on homosexuality.

Kirk was asked a question and he answered it, with his beliefs. He is a Christain and Christains believe that homosexually is not normal. Whats the big uproar over. If you ask a vegetarian actor to eat pork he will tell you he doesn't eat meat and why. The Pork Association of American don't then got boycott the vegetarian. GLAAD wants tolerance and acceptance, but aren't willing to accept or tolerate anyone who disagrees wtih them. What a bunch of hypocrites

I agree with Kirk! I also think people should get over themselves because we all are entitled to our own opinions. I am glad he spoke truthfully about how he feels!

Did you know that more states support the right to marry one's own cousin vs. support gay unions! Now that's wrong!

I have followed Kirk's career and I must say that I support him 100% in his comments. Everything he said was out of love. He didn't speak out of malice or prejudice.

Kirk was very clear in his wording that he is NOT judging, he is expressing HIS OWN opinion. Seems to be we had that right in America, called free speech. GLAAD seems more like politically correct Nazi/SS group in their approach. No one is allowed an opinion that differs from theirs. Shame on GLAAD!
