Is it just me, or has it been way too long since Kirk Cameron last graced us with his startling stupidity? Personally, I’ve been on pins and needles for months, just waiting for Mike Seaver to tell me more about the things that are destroying our civilization, and I’m sure at least some of you feel the same way.
Well, don’t get your hopes up too high, because today we’re only going to hear from darling Kirk through his manager, but still, I think it’s worth it. See, a 17-year-old boy named Corey took it upon himself to invite Kirk to the Garden State Equality’s Youth Caucus so that “in a kind, respectful and constructive way,” they could discuss Kirk’s public statements and so that they could explain to Kirk how hurtful his words have been to them. You can read the letter in full here, but essentially, it’s a very friendly letter from a bunch of teenagers who wanted to have a civil discussion with Kirk about the issues he’s spoken about so hatefully. They heard that Kirk was going to be in the same state on the weekend of their event, and they took a shot.
Here‘s the response from Kirk’s manager:
My name is Mark Craig and I am Kirk’s manager. His schedule is quite hectic with his movie Monumental and working on a new one at the same time, as well as his Love Worth Fighting For events.
He usually flies in the day of the event and after the event is actually traveling to the next one. Because of this intense schedule, there is not time to set up extra meetings like you are suggesting. That being said I would normally just write a simple reply, “Thanks for your invitation, however Kirk’s schedule will not permit,” but because you have taken some time to share some of your feelings, Kirk asked me to personally thank you on his behalf for your kind invitation and is very sorry he can not attend because of the schedule that weekend. I also want to thank you for taking the time to write and share your heart in your letter.
For this reason, I want to share this thought with you, from someone who sees and works with Kirk almost everyday of the year – I promise you his goal is not one of trying to hurt people in any way, in fact it is just the opposite. He has a concern for their well being – not only now, but eternally. He goes out to share a positive message through events like this weekend and I assure you he will only be presenting a positive/ inspiring message.
I would like to suggest if you really are interested in Kirk’s thoughts on the matter, you can listen online to the interviews and comments Kirk has shared where he was given ample time to communicate his heart and thoughts. I hope you can attend the event and see for yourself.
Silly kids, Kirk Cameron isn’t trying to hurt you! He loves you, and he just wants to make sure that you don’t burn in the fiery pits of hell! Oh, and instead of talking to him about how hurtful his comments have been for you, why don’t you just go ahead and listen to those comments again! Problem solved! You ol’ sillies!
But seriously, Kirk Cameron is the worst.
