'Growing Pains' Star

Kirk Cameron is DEAD WRONG

on Gay Rights

3/5/2012 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tracey Gold is neither sharing the laughter nor the love with her former "Growing Pains" co-star Kirk Cameron after he blasted gay people on CNN.

Gold went to her Twitter page last night ... and posted, "I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE."

In fact, the image on Gold's Twitter page is a photo from the pro-gay rights NOH8 campaign.

As we previously reported, Kirk ignited a firestorm Friday night when he appeared on "Piers Morgan" and said, "I think [homosexuality is] ... unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

He said, "I think that [homosexuality] is detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."
Key word there is "think."
You can't go around saying things like that based on a feeling or a fictional book. Well, I mean, you can, but you'd be wrong.
Imagine you are a gay teenager, and you hear someone say that. Just for a minute, put on your good ol' magic Jesus shoes, and pretend to know what it might feel like to be someone else. How would his words make you feel?
Would they hurt?
Anyway. If he wants to make those claims, he should research what damage homosexuality has actually done to civilization. And I'm sorry, but quoting the bible does not count as research.
It would be nice if he also then showed numbers for the amount of murders the Catholic church has on it's hands, or ya know, he could talk about the whole child molestation thing. But nah...let's call gays detrimental.

The bible says: In the same way, men stopped having natural sex and began wanting each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and in their bodies they received the punishment for those wrongs. (Romans 1:27 NCV)

Kirk Cameron: Successful husband and father who has never been arrested. His life is an example of where his worlview leads. Tracey Gold: Broken home, broken marriage, drug addiction, suicide attempts.

Homosexuality is a most natural part of the human condition.
GOD created us all!
God didn't say, "OOOPS!" gotta call that one back!
NO! He loves ALL his creations. He didn't create JUNK!
It's we human beings who create labels. Think of it, LABELS!
Some people have to put others in a box. It makes them feel secure. Ethnic minorities know all about that!
Having said all that, we, christians are forbidden to PRACTICE HOMOSEXUAL ACTS! Hear that, Cameron? We don't say it's unnatural, unless we love to profess our ignorance. BUT, if we sin, then there's the act of reconciliation with God. There, we promise to not do it anymore. As many times as we do the act, we are free to return, after 1) Confessing our sins; 2) Saying we're sorry; 3) Promising to not do it again.
We are not to judge another person based on their sexuality. Heterosexuals don't. But we are told to tell the person what they're doing is wrong. And the homosexual act is wrong. We know it's natural, but it's not part of God's plan for procreation; therefore, it's forbidden.

Wow this post attracted every loony in the cyber world apparently. You know awhile back there was a sad, sad picture of Kirk having a "birthday party" at his "work" in which there was one woman standing in the same room, and another woman in the doorway, and Kirk all alone, blowing out a candle with a couple of Subway sandwiches on the table. I don't know what kind of "work" he does, but I'm guessing his employees were all summoned to this thread, or any post about Kirk, to defend him like a pack of rabid wolves. Ohboy, Jeff, and the rest, maybe you should get back to work now, Kirk is a closeted gay man that hides his dark side from everyone around him, just like your Republican friends that get caught in airport bathrooms trolling for gay sex when they are married, you're going to want to commit suicide when Kirk gets caught one day and proves you all wrong. Save the grief, stop being mindless drones. Have a lovely day. P.S. Gay people are great. Liars are not.

Oh I wish everyone would settle down. If people actually watched the whole interview, he did not say they were bad, he just said he did not personally agree with it and guess what people....this is America and we have free speech. He had a right to express his opinion and he expressed it because he was asked...he did not go out and protest against Gay Marriage or anything else. I give him credit for sticking to his beliefs, I am a christian and happen to have a different opinion but I do not fault Kirk Cameron for his.most people are cowards...they have beliefs but lie about them when put on the spot. People need to get over it an move on.

Tracey 's words are Golden.

Meanwhile, Kirk is just another senator or congressman caught wanting to have sex with another guy in an airport. The hypocrisy!

Cameron did not 'blast' the homosexual community. He stated his personal opinion. An individual can't peep the slightest word without being blame for being phobic, racist, etc. And some wonder why this country is going downhill.

This man has no idea about history. Greeks considered homosexuality as something virtuous and beautiful, which was part of their civilization too. And Greeks weren't beated for being gay. They were beated by Romans because these were stronger. Romans looked up to Greeks and also weren't beated by barbarians for being gay. They were beaten by barbarians because of money.
He should study more about this topic in history and notice that being gay wasn't so relevant in ancient civilizations but more in the current ones.
I think the homosexuality topic is getting too much publicity.

I wonder what Kirk Cameron says when he prays... "Dear Lord, thank you for sending me Rush Limbaugh so that people will pay attention to the crazy crap HE'S been saying, instead of the crazy crap I'VE been saying!"

No such luck, Kirk. Look at the bright side: People ARE noticing you. As opposed to before, when your career was LEFT BEHIND! http://www.comunitee.com/comunitee/showComuniteeBarArticle/3035534/4280/5/587

Everyone has an opinion and is entitled to it. You are also entitled to support or disagreee with that opinion. You show your immaturity by shading your opinion with a personal attack.
