In a recent interview with Piers Morgan, former Growing Pains actor Kirk Cameron boldly took a stand for traditional marriage and against abortion. The results? Exactly what you’d expect:
@TheHendryx – “looks pretty gay for a dude that hates fags.”
@JimmyGirlPhotoG – “I can’t believe Mike Seaver turned out to be such a lunatic douche… #GrowingPains@kirkcameron
@ArabRabbra – “I swear, I canNOT believe in 2012 we have shit like the GOP candidates, @kirkcameron ignorance, #kony2012 ect. Its legit #endtimes”
@bgsmithdc – “Cool so a washed up, never was “star” is now an expert on marriage and virtue? @kirkcameron ur a JACKASS…go back to being irrelevant pls!”
@Matthewinnz – “All of you praising @kirkcameron for his words are disgusting excuses of a human being. Its 2012, not 1012, times have changed #learntolove”
On a Tuesday episode of The Talk, Latoya Jackson described Kirk Cameron’s words as “hateful,” while Sara Gilbert essentially stated that Cameron’s words could cause a spike among the suicide rate of the gay and lesbian community. Even Alan Thicke and Tracey Gold, Cameron’s former TV dad and sister, respectively, took to Twitter to express their distaste for his choice of words. I came across a lot of hateful Tweets aimed at Cameron on Twitter, but Roseanne Barr’s Tweet was by far the most bizarre, although I don’t expect anything less from her anyway: “Kirk or kurt or whatever Cameron is an accomplice to murder with his hate speech.” Ah, yes. Supporting traditional marriage is equivalent to murder. You’ve got to love liberal logic, or lack thereof.
Piers Morgan invited Cameron on the show to discuss his upcoming movie, Monumental. Morgan can never pass up an opportunity to ask someone what their stance is on gay marriage or abortion. He asked, “What do you believe?” Cameron responded with, “I believe marriage is between one man and one woman, until death do you part.” Morgan then went on to ask, “Do you think homosexuality is a sin?” Cameron answered, “I think that it’s unnatural,” “detrimental,” and “ultimately destructive.” I suppose Piers Morgan was expecting Kirk Cameron to give an ingratiating answer that would tickle the ears of every homosexual and gay activist, because the answer he gave was, according to Morgan, an answer that was “abnormal and offensive.” Cameron didn’t accept Piers Morgan’s interview invitation to adamantly voice his unacceptance of the idea of gay marriage; he was asked how he felt about gay marriage and homosexuality.
A few news sources are saying Piers Morgan came to Kirk Cameron’s defense when he said Cameron was “honest and brave” for “saying what he said,” and he may genuinely feel that way, but to say Kirk Cameron “hated” homosexuals, is pure dishonesty. Cameron never said he hated anyone; he is just not in favor of homosexuality, and that is what the Left is trying to ostracize him for. The ever-so-tolerant Left is only tolerant when you say what they like to hear; any opposition to their views, and it is open season for you. Maybe that’s why the mainstream media solely contrasted those who spewed their hatred for Kirk Cameron’s statement. What about the individuals who supported his stance on marriage?
From Kirk Cameron’s Facebook page:
Rolanda DelaMartinez – “Kirk, you said a mouth full. I’ve walked in your shoes and have nothing but the utmost respect for you stating your Christian beliefs with TRUTH and LOVE. However, many will twist the words of those who stand for God’s word…Jesus experienced this and you will be no different. Praying for you and your family during this difficult time.”
Sarah Baker Prox – “Thank you for your comments….they were sensitive and loving yet TRUTHFUL. Thank you for standing firm!!!”
Sara Gibson – “way to stand up for a Holy God!! Thank you, Kirk.”
Elizabeth Fuentes – “Being GAY LESBIAN BISEXUAL IS WRONG PEOPLE !!!! GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEAD! GET OVER IT KIRK SPOKE THE TRUTH THAT IS ALL !”
Pamela A Berry – “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident. (Psalm 27: 1, 3)
@StephenBaldwin7 – “GREAT JOB Kirk !!! Let’s pray one day Piers Morgan finds true Salvation, God Bless !”
@Danielprays – “Pray for @KirkCameron He’s face great heat after speaking the truth in love at @PiersMorgan”
@Ayana_Kay – “Get off of @KirkCameron back.. Certain things are not right and America is full of double standards and our core values are slipping.”
@anotherday1 – “@KirkCameron THANK YOU FOR NOT COVERING UP WHAT YOU BELIEVE WHILE @PiersMorgan IS TRYING TO STICK IT TO U! GOOD JOB!”
@linsey_lynn – “Marriage is between a man & a woman. God designed it that way & its rite. I am 100% behind @KirkCameron, he’s speakin truth 2 a lost world.”
The Left will only reveal to you what’s convenient for them. For as many of those who disgorged their hatred for Kirk Cameron’s opinion, there were just as many that stood by him and voiced their support. Liberals will do everything they can to, as Michelle Malkin puts it, “criminalize conservative dissent.” The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, also known as GLAAD, has a petition called “Tell Kirk Cameron It’s Time To Finally Grow Up” trying to circle the web (it only has 6,686, and their goal is 7,500). This watchdog organization reminds me of the website the Obama administration launched; you know, the one you visit when you want to report a really mean comment someone said about the President? For those of you in favor of stifling free speech, feel free to report me; the link has been provided.
Sure, liberals, you can hate the conservative stance on marriage, but you’re going to have a very difficult time shutting us up. You may very well continue to reveal one-sided views to the public, but TheCollegeConservative will continue to call you out on it. You will never scare us into submission or compliance. There is nothing wrong with saying, “I support traditional marriage!”
