Funny or Die comes out with guns blazing against former child actor star Kirk Cameron. Other child celebrities oppose Kirk Cameron (CCOKC) and his demonization of gays and lesbians. Fair warning it uses strong language but the video is hilarious if you can get past it.
In recent weeks the conservative Christian advocate went on a media blitz to condemn homosexuality. This included saying “homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to foundations of civilization” on the Piers Morgan show. Even his former co-stars on Growing Pains, Alan Thicke and Tracy Gold, condemned his remarks.
Cameron then tried to mend fences by saying:
“I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally) in the wake of condemnation by some political advocacy groups,” Cameron added. “In the case of one of my gay friends, we regularly talk and have healthy and respectful debate. We learn from each other, and serve others alongside one another. I thank God for all of my friends … even when they hold very different views on issues of faith and morality.”
Translating it into a similar manner, “I’m not racist, I have black friends!” This is complete crap. You cannot have a healthy and respectful debate when you believe that a part of a person is immoral, “fixable” and worthy of eternal damnation. Anyways…
It is funny how comedy can work its way through a debate like to this to show the stupidity of it all. I am not calling one’s beliefs stupid nor the belief that homosexuality is wrong. I am calling the entire debate stupid because regardless of one’s personal intimate life, it does not mean our society should deem them as an unequal person. Cameron can have his opinion. He can express them on talk shows all he wants. He just needs to know that he will face this type of ridicule and that his views are vile, hateful, mean, judgmental, and based upon a misunderstanding of God (that last one is my own opinion).
