|Kirk Cameron and his FABULOUS hair!!|
“I think that it’s – it’s – it’s unnatural. I think that it’s – it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Does he have any facts/studies to back up his claim? These statements are meant to demonize a group of people. Claiming that gays and lesbians, by simply living the way God created them, is destructive to society, without offering any evidence to back this claim is hate speech.
Now, he claims that people who criticize him for spouting hate speech is oppressing him.
"I believe that freedom of speech and freedom of religion go hand-in-hand in America. I should be able to express moral views on social issues – especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years – without being slandered, accused of hate speech and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square...." - Kirk Cameron, quoted by World Net Daily. Cameron adds that he's gotten support from "my gay friends" since the CNN interview aired.
I would love to meet these "gay friends" who "support" Kirk's claim that they are "destructive to so many foundations of society". Talk about some self-loathing Queens!
This is my favorite part of his response:
"I hope more than a few people could see the large volume of secularist morality being imposed on me," Cameron concluded. "In any society that is governed by the rule of law, some form of morality is always imposed. It's inescapable. But it is also a complicated subject, and that is why I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect."So, telling people that they are "destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization is treating them with "love and respect"?
Only in right wing fundie land does that make sense. I'll pray for you, Kirk!
