Kirk Cameron Blasted by GLAAD Over Gay Marriage Comments
TMZ: Kirk Cameron’s comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage are not sitting well with the folks at GLAAD … who think the former “Growing Pains” star “sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character.”
Cameron said during last night’s show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general … he said, “I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, tells TMZ he feels Cameron, a Born Again Christian, is “out of step with a vast majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.”
A GLAAD spokesman says they plan on monitoring Cameron’s media bookings and various acting gigs to ensure “the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views.”
I’m sick and tired of bleeding heart liberals calling themselves the tolerant ones when, in fact, they have no tolerance if you don’t agree with them. Why isn’t Kirk allowed to express his personal Christian beliefs without being condemned? Why must he get in line with the “vast majority of Americans”?
You want to be gay? Have at it. I don’t care what you do in the privacy of your home. But that doesn’t mean I, as a Christian, have to change my belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.
Can you imagine the backlash if Christians decided to monitor GLAAD’s activities to bring attention to their outrageous anti-Christian views?

Obviously Steven Hawking is a very bright guy, but his elitist hostility towards those who have an explanation for something neither he nor anyone has ever been able to explain, is rather bizarre.
Last week, award-winning scientist and best-selling author declared that the belief in heaven or an afterlife is a “fairy story” for people afraid of life after death. …
That complete rejection of the existence of God infuriated Evangelical Christian Kirk Cameron, who shot back at the world-famous scientist with his own retort—prove it!
“Professor Hawking is heralded as ‘the genius of Britain,’ yet he believes in the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything and that life sprang from non-life.” The former teen heartthrob steamed to TMZ. “Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking’s writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came?”
Cameron’s exactly right. Hawking’s making a scientific statement based on zero evidence. Where’s the scientific recreation of Hawking’s belief? Where’s the creation of life out of matter that isn’t already alive? Where’s the creation of something out of nothing? The Big Bang doesn’t explain what created the Big Bang and no one can truly wrap their mind around the infinity of space. As far as I’m concerned, it requires the summoning of more faith NOT to believe in God than the other way around. Honestly, I don’t know how atheists do it.
Besides, it’s just a fact that Jesus-freaks like Cameron and I not only have an explanation to many unanswered questions, but also no small amount of historical and archaeological evidence with which to back it up.
Hawking’s got nada.
Anyway, there had better be a Heaven. I’d hate to think I’ve behaved myself all this time for no reason.
If I was in Hawking’s shoes, confined to a wheelchair, body crumpled and deformed and unable to speak except through a computer I would most certainly believe in Heaven, God and Jesus and look forward to the hereafter, when I would have a whole body, stand tall and praise the Lord with my own voice.
