Oh heavens, bless his little heart! Kirk Cameron‘s feelings are still hurt because of that time a lot of people disagreed with him seven months ago. This poor man probably has nightmares over our impassioned words. Shame on us, friends. Shame on us.
Just as a reminder, here’s what Kirk originally said:
“[Gay marriage is] detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization. … Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part.”
And here’s Kirk bringing it up again:
Kirk Cameron has once again defended the controversial comments he made about homosexuality on Piers Morgan’s CNN program back in March – this time to a crowd of students, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
The 41-year-old actor, best known for his role as Mike Seaver on the TV comedy Growing Pains, addressed a group of college kids at Virginia’s Liberty University where he spoke about the scandal.
“Sometimes, when a Christian is asked a question and has a conviction about not backing down and wussing out…it can get you into some hot water,” Cameron said.
Cameron also claimed he was “drug out to the public square” and “stoned so to speak” and “crucified” after he had “blasphemed the God of Political Correctness” with his anti-gay views.
Did you get that? He was “drug out to the public square,” “stoned,” and “crucified.” Sounds like somebody’s a drama queen, right? Ugh, cry me a river, Mike Seaver.
Look, I definitely believe in respecting one’s religion, but there’s a line between having religious beliefs and believing that certain people shouldn’t have basic civil rights. There just is. If you’re a Christian, that’s wonderful, it truly is, and you definitely have the right to believe whatever you like. But so do I. And if you believe that an entire group of people, including people that I love dearly, don’t deserve equality or are in any way destructive to civilization, then you can promptly go f-ck yourself. And that’s a commandment from the Church of Real Talk.
But by all means, Kirk, keep complaining about how hard your life is as a straight white Christian man. Oh, and sorry for the crucifixion. Loved you on Growing Pains (but still go f-ck yourself).
