Piers Morgan

Cameron Was 'Brave' to Voice

Anti Gay Marriage Opinions

3/4/2012 7:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0304_piers_morgan_video_ex
Piers Morgan admits that Kirk Cameron ticked a lot of people off by voicing his opinions against gay marriage ... but Piers thinks the former child star was "brave" to stick to his beliefs.

GLAAD predictably blasted Cameron after his appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight," during which he called homosexuality "unnatural" and "destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

But Morgan feels Cameron "was honest to what he believed" even if he most people find his views to be "antiquated."

As the old saying goes ... "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

truth hurts    

I don't think most people find his views "antiquated". The media is biased towards a liberal view. It's how you have convinced the world that homosexuality is natural just like plastic boobs, plastic noses and plastic hair.

Yes,Piers Christians are brave and bold in what they believe.. willing to stand up to wimpy news men who change their beliefs to suit the latest chic fad. God's word has not changed....when you stand before Him I doubt he will say well done.

I agree with KC... I feel to each his own, but at the end of the day I can't get with it. I will never be a hateful person, but I just can't get with it. I am also wearing thin on the constant force feeding of the lifestyle everyday. I get it, you want rights to do what you want, hell marry a horse for all I care. I am just sick of it all... I agree with the previous poster. Let's start some STR8 PRIDE!!!!!

Kirk Cameron is not a closet gay. He's a good Christian man who fights the good fight against a world that condemns righteousness, hates God and glorifies anything sinful. Homosexuality is wrong first and foremost because God says it is. But it's not the only sexual sin, it's just the one that's most talked about now. It's a dangerous sin because it's not just an action - homosexuality wraps it's tendrils around a person’s soul and it becomes who they are. It's a battle for all of us when someone attacks our identity whatever that may be. And God condemns the homosexual identity and therefore you hate God. And these comments prove that. Several people here attacked his identity as a Christian. "He's a closet gay." You can yell and scream and call people names but when it's all said and done you will have no excuse. You saw the signs and heard the truth and you still stand with your tiny fist in the air cursing God. You can change the laws and change public opinion and condemn those who disagree but the truth is still the truth because God has declared it. You traded eternity for a piece of flesh. You battled your whole life for the right to spend eternity in hell. And those that support you in your hatred of God are condemned as well. "Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them." Romans 1 And here's a flaw in your logic. Kirk Cameron is vocal against homosexuality so he must be gay? You are vocal against Christianity so you must be a closet Christian. Flawed logic spoken against a man who's logic is based on the Wisdom of God. All will be held accountable for their words. It would be better for you to not speak. Seek God. Repent. Live.

It isn't an opinion. It's bigotry. How can it be an opinion that homosexuality is unnatural? It isn't. Kirk Cameron is an *******.

We need to get the word out to religious communities that anti-gay people are twisting God's words to suit their agenda.

Homosexuality is not a sin. The Bible is constantly being taken out of context to support anti-gay views. Scholars who have studied the Bible in context of the times and in relation to other passages have shown those passages (Leviticus, Corinthians, Romans, etc) have nothing to do with homosexuality. These passages often cherry-picked while ignoring the rest of the Bible. The sins theses passages are referring to are idolatry, Greek temple sex worship, prostitution, pederasty with teen boys, and rape, not homosexuality or two loving consenting adults.

This is the perfect example of how anti-gay people change the bible's words for their anti-gay agenda.

Corinthians 6:9-11
Let us examine that very closely.

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [malakoi], nor homosexual offenders [arsenokoites], nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God.

First of all, before we address this line, let us consider one thing. Supposedly taken from a 2000+ year old book, understand that the word "homosexual" was not coined until 1869 by Austrian-born novelist Karl-Maria Kertbeny. So how it happens to be included in a true reading of the particular biblical passage should make you ponder how accurate the interpretation actually is. So man changing the words of the Bible to conveniently spread their anti-gay agenda?

Absolutely.

For those of you claiming homosexuality is a "lifestyle", that is a false and ignorant statement. Homosexuality is not a choice. Just like you don't choose the color of your skin, you cannot choose whom you are sexually attracted to. Virtually all major psychological and medical experts agree that sexual orientation is NOT a choice. Most gay people will tell you its not a choice. Common sense will tell you its not a choice. While science is relatively new to studying homosexuality, studies tend to indicate that its biological.

There is overwhelming scientific evidence that homosexuality is not a choice. Sexual orientation is generally a biological trait that is determined pre-natally, although there is no one certain thing that explains all of the cases. "Nurture" may have some effect, but for the most part it is biological.

The National Library of Medicine pubs confirm that sexual orientation is natural, biologically induced in the first trimester of pregnancy, morally neutral, immutable, neither contagious nor learned, bearing no relation to an individuals ability to form deep and lasting relationships, to parent children, to work or to contribute to society.

From the American Psychological Association: homosexuality is normal; homosexual relationships are normal.

The American Academy of Pediatrics, American Psychological Association and American Psychiatric Association have endorsed civil marriage for same-sex couples because marriage strengthens mental and physical health and longevity of couples, and provides greater legal and financial security for children, parents and seniors.

America's premier child/mental health associations endorse marriage equality.

This was taken from another poster that shows why we need to legalize gay marriage. If you don't feel for this person after reading it, you simply aren't human.

"I am not sure what our President thinks of this dicission but coming from a poor family and knowing what discrimination is all about I would assume he would not care if "Gays" have equal rights. The whole reason why they are asking for rights to be considered married is from the same reason why I would be for it. My own life partner commited suicide in our home with a gun to his heart. After a 28 year union I was deprived to even go his funeral. We had two plots next to each other. But because we did not have a marriage cirtificate "(Legal Do***ent)" of our union his mother had him cremated and his ashes taken back to Missouri where we came from. That is only one example how painful it is. His suicide tramatized me so much and her disregard for my feelings only added to my heartach. That happened on March 21 of 2007 and I still cannot type this without crying for the trauma I have to endure each day. Oh did I mention I am in an electric wheelchair for life? Yes I am and it is very diffacult to find another mate when you are 58 and in a wheelchair. "
