Actor Kirk Cameron: Homosexuality is ‘Unnatural’ and ‘Destructive’
The Blaze ^ | March 3, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 03/05/2012 1:18:36 AM PST by Brown Deer

Former “Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron told CNN’s Piers Morgan Friday that homosexuality is “unnatural” and “destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Cameron, an evangelical Christian, has been back in the news lately to promote his new documentary “Monumental,” about America’s founding principles. He attended the Conservative Political Action Conference last month and appeared on GBTV.

In a sit-down interview on “Piers Morgan Tonight,” the host repeatedly pressed Cameron about his views on social issues.

“I believe that marriage was designed by God a long time ago — 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.” Cameron said when asked about his gay marriage views. “I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage, and I don’t think anyone else should either so do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t.”

Cameron — who at first joked, “I feel like I just got imported into the Christine O’Donnell interview you did back in August” at Morgan’s line of questioning — said he does not consider being gay normal.

“I think that it’s unnatural, I think that it’s detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization,” Cameron said. Asked what he would say to his son if he announced he was gay, Cameron answered, “Just because you feel one way doesn’t mean you should act on everything you feel.”

When Morgan sounded incredulous at Cameron’s answer, he replied: “Piers, you‘re speaking to a man who’s a Christian and I believe all of us are sinful, that’s what I teach my kids. I teach them the values that I hold dear, I treasure the God that loves me and forgives me of my sin.”

Abortion, he said, is “wrong in any circumstances.”

“I think that someone who is ultimately willing to murder a child, even to fix another tragic and devastating situation like rape or incest or things like that, is not taking the moral high road,” Cameron said. “I think that we’re compounding the problem by also murdering a little child.”

In response to Cameron’s statements, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation started a petition to tell the former teen heartthrob “it’s time to finally grow up.”

Since when do you have to become a fag to grow up?

So taking a Biblical stand is now defamation?

I wonder what else he can do for a living?

Good on him for standing up.

The Lord bless this fine man who indeed has grown up in the fashion that pleases Almighty God, regardless of what the depraved scum of society says. His life and testimony speak for themselves and Piers Morgan needs to give his head a shake.

Well, I’m sorry for Cameron, but at least the media should stop pestering Rush for a while.

The phags talk so much about sex in their day to day lives, that all these double entendre slink into their conversation, choice of words. Then in the course of normal discourse, you get these vile statements that have double meaning. They might not even know they are doing it. How else can it be, on the average people going through hundreds of fleeting anonymous sex partners one after the other without batting an eye. I swear that libertine segment of the population has sex sex sex so much on their minds incessantly, they are just plain sick:

"It is time for Christians to stand up and take a stand. Bravo to Kirk Cameron!"

It is time indeed. We must wake up. When someone says she is having too much sex and can't afford birth control, and ask me & you to cover her cost, and she is not sent home on a rail then our great God Fearing country is going down the wrong path.
Too Many people were concerned with RUSH calling her a name than her demands. . . . . .
IT IS TIME! ! ! ! !

I agree.
However just about anybody would be better than what we have to choose from this time.

In New America it is. I`m surprised Cameron hasn`t been charged with a hate crime. Doesn`t he know gay is the “in” thing now? He needs to get with the program! /s

Homosexuality is unnatural.

A more common sense, factual statement does not exist.

Because homosexuality is a mental illness which is an admixture of (but not exclusively comprised of) sexual obsession/addiction and an intense fear of intimacy (which results in an inability to mature emotionally beyond pre-adolescence).

I’ve always considered it an Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Still, a mental defect...

Talking morality with Piers Morgan is like talking chastity with a prostitute...they just are not going to get it...

The goal is to make taking a Biblical stand a CRIMINAL act.

Good point, if that’s the case I’ve got a lot of growing up to do.

Come to think of it not sure I’ll ever get there... nope, pretty sure I’m never gonna there.

Ahhh, to be forever young.... :)
