Kirk Cameron Responds To The Backlash Over His Outdated Homophobia!

kirk cameron gay marriage homophobia

Oh here we go!!

Kirk Cameron has released a statement in response to the backlash given over the homophobic views he expressed to Piers Morgan.

Throwing it back on everyone, because ya know, he definitely shouldn't be held accountable when he says homosexuality destroys society, Kirk says those who judge him are just as bad as he is for judging homosexuality.

Welp! He's right when he says everyone is judging him too (for being narrow-minded). But here's the thing - the judgement thrown back on him won't hinder his civil rights. It's the judgement he and others spew that keeps gay Americans from enjoying certain freedoms.

His statement reads:

I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people. 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.

Yawn.

As long as his views are hindering civil rights — such as the right for consenting gay adults to marry — he should prepare for all the raised eyebrows that come his way.

Those kind of views breed negative actions: bullying, violence, and worse.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, sure. But if those opinions hinder the rights and lives of those who haven't done anything to warrant such hate, then yeah, you're most likely gonna be thought of as an a$$hole!

*That being said, nobody should ever mimic homophobes and physically act on their opinions of Kirk.

Thoughts?

    Oh, can it. It amazes me how many people say, "You don't support gay marriage!! You are a BIGOT and you HATE gays and you're INTOLERANT." These SAME PEOPLE don't respect a person's RIGHT to have the opinion that gay marriage is immoral. THAT is the same intolerance you're incessantly whining about. Absolutely ridiculous to me. "You're allowed to have your opinion….as long as it's the same as mine. Anything beyond that, and you're full of hate and I can't handle you." How about you LEARN the terminology you're using. Just because a Christian doesn't agree with gay marriage doesn't mean he hates or fears homosexuals. It means he doesn't agree with gay marriage. Stop throwing words like "hate" and "fear" around so frivolously. YOU are the reason they're losing their meaning, which undermines ACTUAL hate, rather than just perceived hate.



  2. 2

    While I whole-heartedly disagree with Kirk Cameron's opinions I find it equally terrible that you would resort to calling him an asshole (especially on such a public platform). You've been so much better than that lately! If anything, you should feel sorry for someone who lives in a world of mistrust and potential hate because they have decided to believe that the source of those negative feelings will make their life better. It's a terribly sad situation and one I think can only change through positive interaction.



  3. 3

    People do have the rights to their opinions. And we have the right to respond to those opinions. I do NOT support Cameron's opinion. I will not support his movies or purchase his DVD's. I support human rights. I support Gay Marriage. I support Choice. I support women's rights to choose. I support women's rights to birth control. I support moving this country forward not backwards. Kurt Cameron and people like him can move to the Middle East and enjoy the hate and bigotry that is that culture. But the USA, She is moving forward and Evolving.



  4. 4

    I'm gay. Kirk Cameron is right in his response. I completely disagree with his opinion, but hr has the right to say what he said. He is right in his response. Piers Morgan disagreed with him so it was a fairly balanced discussion. And Kirks views aren't new. There are people who feel this way. Fortunately, I felt that his beliefs weren't executed well and what he said sounded very outdated. It only solidified my personal belief that gay marriage is the right way to go. But you can't hate on him cause he doesn't share your beliefs. I look at it this way - gay marriage will become legal in time. It will. And if everybody just simply agreed with gay marriage - perhaps when it is 100% legal - the victory wouldn't be as sweet.



  5. 5

    The difference is, no one is trying to eradicate him. I personally think his deplorable acting is a bane on our society. Should I stand behind a movement to have him outlawed?



  6. 6

    I couldnt agree more with his right to express his views on it. He never once degraded, name called or sounded like a "Bigot". Views do not breed violence….. they are simply that. I don't believe he said he thought you shouldnt have the same rights. I believe he said he didnt agree with your lifestyle. He has the right to disagree with you or anyone for that matter without being slandered. You on the other hand are giving cause for concern with your "round up the possy and lets get em" reactions and opinions. I also don't think his views were homophobic. He simply did not agree with them. There is a big difference. Perez you can't force someone to conform anymore than you would let them force you. WE CAN'T ALL BE GAY!



  7. 7

    Re: Jildo! – I agree…..everyone is FREE to share their opinions. (Freedom of Speech?) That is all he was doing. If anything, you should look at Piers Morgan for having him on his show, knowing that when he asked the questions about Cameron's beliefs on Gays/Gay marriage, what to expect. Kirk Cameron has made it pretty clear on what he believes throughout the years. Piers knew that. Cameron was set up for a backlash for simply stating what he believed. He was not trying to change the viewers belief….but simply gave his VIEW POINT. Are you upset? Let Piers Morgan know for letting him on the show knowing before hand his stance



  8. 8

    Jildo is absolutely right. I do not agree with gay marriage. And I have gay friends. They know me, they know how I feel. But they also know that I never treat them any differently than I treat anyone else. They certainly don't call me homophobic. Maybe, that's because they know what that word means PEREZ! I do not agree with many of Kirk Camerons other views, but he has the right to his own opinion, and to express it. I don't see how his statements in any way could breed "bullying, violence and worse." In fact the word hate never was used by him. They are HIS moral standards, and just like you don't have to bend yours, he doesn't either. That's called having character. Look into it.



  9. 9

    Fuck this article, and fuck your YAWN, Perez. How fucking disrespectful and mean and IGNORANT can you be?!!!

    What do you want from him? do you really believe the entire world should beleive what you believe? you are SUCH a Hippocratic!! and a hater!! You want respect for your community but you don't respect people who don't believe what you believe? You are doing exactly what you're accusing him of, except KC is being NICE and LOVING about it, you fucking hateful bitch!!

    I have been a supporter for the gay community since I was a tiny tot, and this site makes me hate fucking queens for the first time in my fucking life!!!

    Re: Dolph – You are an ignorant FUCK. YOU move to the middle east you hateful asshole.



  11. 11

    Re: Dolph – So your ideal USA is now a "You don't accept my viewpoint thereby you will be deported"?! Hmmm….



  12. 12

    re: JenzOpinion: He said gays are unnatural and destructive. He wants marriage to be only between a man and a woman - in other words he supports discrimination. He may be polite and well spoken, but he is still a bigot. What if he would have said the same things, except about people of another race? Yes, he would still have a right to his opinion, but he would be severely chastised for his bigotry. People who don't think gays should get married support legislated discrimination. Simple bigotry.



  13. 13

    Re: cbuckwhizzle – You say you don't support gay marriage, and then you say that you treat gays the same as everyone else. Don't you see the contradiction there? If you truly treat gays the same as everyone else, then you would see that they have as much right to marriage as anyone else.



  14. 14

    OMG Perez ENOUGH! His response was respectful, articulate, polite and honest. More importantly, he's right because he has every right to express his opinions without having to be trashed and slammed. If you don't like what he has to say, then don't listen to him. The only mean & hateful comments I've seen on this issue have all come from you. This is a personal issue for you, so it skews your ability to see that you're over-reacting to those who don't support gay rights, and that you're challening those people in a very nasty way. Take a step back, breathe, and challenge people respectfully & calmly when their views are different than your own.

    Who the hell cares what he thinks or says anyway? He is not running for any political office. It's just a former teen idol who hasn't done anything of note in 20 years. What's more interesting is that Perez (and the media) is giving him attention and that people are being riled up into a frenzy. QUICK, SOMEONE GET THAT KID FROM MR BELVEDEER AND GET HIS THOUGHTS ON THE MATTER TOO!!!



  16. 16

    PS: Perez… using a bullying technique on a public forum to generate intolerance towards someone who is different is exactly what this blog is. You aren't doing your community any justice or good by acting this way. I think that's why the gay and lesbians in the entertainment industry don't respect you either.



  17. 17

    He was asked a question, he answered the question. Yeah, what an asshole. I think it's pretty clear who the bigoted asshole is here Perez, and it's you.



  18. 18

    Perez, Whyyy are you being so mean, people are allowed to disagree! They don't need to be bullied (which is exactly what your doing) if they don't agree with you.

  19. Wrenn says – reply to this


    19

    Yay Kirk!!! Thank you for defending Christian values and not backing down. I'm sick of behing called a homophobe and a bigot because I choose to believe in God's word. I really don't care who I offend on this earth. My only fear is offending God. You may choose to believe whatever you want, but I have the same right to believe whatever I choose!!!!!



  20. 20

    Re: Dolph – I agree with you Dolph, except the part about Kirk moving to Middle East. Open your eyes - the US is no longer moving forward, it is regressing. The US, in international circles, is seen as just as religiously dominated as countries in the Middle East. Scary, hey?



  21. 21

    @Jildo….you said it perfectly. I would have said the exact same thing, just not as good as you did.



  22. 22

    Re: Jildo! – Your opinion is being respected, however, you're using legislation to impose your beliefs and your religion on others which is unethical and ultimately completely against what this country stands for. There's no substantial evidence homosexuality or gay marriage is destructive to society, as a matter in fact, Massachusetts is doing splendid by comparison to other states and they've legalized gay marriage for years now. I lived there and the ruination conservatives use to invoke fear is non-existent, the heterosexuals remain heterosexual, people practice religion, and homosexuals are homosexual and treated equally.

    You have a right to your beliefs but you can't hold people who don't share them to them as a result of something called SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. Nobody is deciding FOR YOU how you should conduct your marriage, how you should view marriage, how your marriage should be carried out and no one will intervene unless you break laws so why should you be empowered to decide how other people lead THEIR lives? You don't agree with Jews about Jesus being our savior but do you have any right to tell them their beliefs are invalid by way of legislation? No. And if you could it would be amoral and contradictory to the constitution. So don't use legislation as a powerplay to intimidate homosexuals. It's opportunistic, hypocritical, and yes…BIGOTED.



  23. 23

    I couldn't disagree with his views on Homosexuality and gay marriage anymore, I feel completely the opposite of him on this. I DO agree that he had the right to express those views, especially when questioned about them, honestly. I don't think he spoke out of hatred at all, I think he simply expressed where he comes from on the subject. I can respect a difference of opinions and beliefs.

    Sadly, it looks like you can't. You really needed to call him an asshole for believing differently than you do? That makes you closed-minded as well, and THAT kind of response breeds hatred, bullying, violence, etc. At least he was mature in his responses. Too bad the same can't be said of you.



  24. 24

    Re: rosebud99 – - I stand corrected then if he did say that. However wouldnt that prove Perez to be guilty of bigotry as well seeing as how the definition of the word implys intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself. And having said that it would be one thing if this man was working with congress to keep marriage between a man and woman, and I am not sure that he isnt either. But what I took away from the interview was that he was merely stating his opinion. Now lets all keep in mind that I don't agree with his views and I dont supprot his career. I would NEVER have seen this video if Perez didnt "raise awareness" by posting it for everyone to see. Seems more like Perez has the agenda than Kirk….. My opinion… I just don't see Kirk on a soap box these days unless someone is asking. I feel like he is being unfairly picked apart.



  25. 25

    you can't fight hate with hate…but that what Perez seems to always do. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion right or wrong.



  26. 26

    I agree…..everyone is FREE to share their opinions. (Freedom of Speech?) That is all he was doing. If anything, you should look at Piers Morgan for having him on his show, knowing that when he asked the questions about Cameron's beliefs on Gays/Gay marriage, what to expect. Kirk Cameron has made it pretty clear on what he believes throughout the years. Piers knew that. Cameron was set up for a backlash for simply stating what he believed. He was not trying to change the viewers belief….but simply gave his VIEW POINT. Are you upset? Let Piers Morgan know for letting him on the show knowing before hand his stance



  27. 27

    I don't agree with his view, BUT he does have a right to his opinion.



  28. 28

    Alright people, let's break it down to this…….and let's keep it simple - we, as Americans, h ave the absolute right to free speech……so did all the hate mongers from the early, and late 1900's bleeping about civil rights saying that ONLY Caucasions had the right to vote, live free, live a life without prejudice….hence the Civil Rights movement………Women, during this time, were also oppressed from doing certain actions - especially voting -…….interracial anything was banned and not tolerated……NOW that all seems barbaric and UN-AMERICAN. To this day, if we here of any kind of that intolerance we are completely appalled. America is evolving and now, our gay community is dealing with this crap and it will be reolved at some point and time. It's unfortunate that 50 years from now, when this issue is inconsequential, Kirk Cameron will be compared to Hitler, Metzger, SANTORUM when it came to hiding behind "religion" to make their bigoted point. God Bless America and our 1st Ammendment!

    What Kirk said was correct. God created man and woman and gave them to each other in marriage. God also said that homosexuality is an abomination. And that is not an endorcement. You can either accept it or not. But rest assured…. God has authority over us, even if you dont' believe it.



  30. 30

    of course he has a right to his own opinion. no one has disputed that. but for all you people acting like his words were not hateful or disrespectful you have got to be kidding. so i'm assuming that you would all be fine with someone saying you were unnatural, detrimental and destructive to society. not me and none of the gay people i know. only a self loathing coward would accept being described with those terms and not have something to say about it. and he says it's his life mission to love all people. LOL!!! what a crock of shite. come on cameron we know your'e a homophobe but at least act like a man. you've made your bed now you have to lie in it.



  31. 31

    I don't think you quite understand the concept of "bullying" Perez. The definition of Bully by Websters dictionary is this:

    Bully: 1. to treat abusively; 2. to affect by means of force or coercion

    Guess what. That's EXACTLY what you're doing! I know you said you wanted to clean up your act when you realized what effect bullying has on people, and I have to hand it to you, you have done a fairly decent job. Unless someone has an opinion that differs from your own. I support Gay marriage, and I believe that homosexuals should be allowed to do anything that a straight person can, including marry and adopt. But I'm not about to speak against people who don't share my opinion. If they don't believe in that then that's their problem, but I'm not about to make a big deal about it. Judging people who have a different opinion is still judgemental. I may not share Kirk's beliefs but I am not about to namecall, which is a form of bullying, btw, over it.
    Piers knew Kirk's stance on everything, and asked a question he knew the answer to. Kirk was being set up for the backlash, which was not right.
    I think you need to look long and hard in the mirror before you call anyone else an "asshole" Mario. You don't have to bully people into sharing your opinion. Its unfair and soo not cool! I seriously wonder why I continue to visit your site.



  32. 32

    People will never accept homosexuality. Never. It will never be acceptable to "regular" people. We will get more and more heterosexuals "supporting" gay marriage and gay rights because it will become more and more fashionable to do so. But deep down inside, the vast majority of people will still and will always think it is wrong and fucked up. Trust. Sexual relations and intercourse between a male and a female is a primal instinct. Just like eating. And straight people will never in a million, zillion, godzillion years ever understand sex between two men or two women. People may ACT like they accept it, and ACT like they support it. But trust me, they don't. So go ahead and get married, and get your legal piece of paper. But you will never truly be married in the eyes of society. That doesn't mean you are a "bad" person. Or that you should be descriminated against on the job or have hateful things said to you in public, etc. But your sexual interests are not normal, and will never truly be viewed as OK.

    Re: moyra – And I, as a non christian, totally disagree with all of this and say lol @ your ridicioulous religious ideology…okay? When you die, you're dead - there is no fairy tale happy afterlife…okay? No one has ever proved there was. Stop making laws and governing people based soley on your 'guy in the sky' theory. It's not right.



  34. 34

    Keep whining Hilton, you're just making people hate gays even more. Check the comments on your boy band u.tu..be site and you'll see what so many think of you and gays. Cameron expressed his opinion honestly and eloquently, far more than you ever have. Fuck yourself.



  35. 35

    What I find most confusing is why everyone calls his views/beliefs "outdated"? Do people not realize that he pulls his views/beliefs/faith from the Bible-the oldest and still most popular book sold in the world today? Of course they seem old and out dated…It's because God's word never changes. And it won't change because the world has become progressive. He didn't promote hate only his faith. End of story. You can love people and disagree with them or how they live there life. God IS Love…

    Re: Jildo! – Well Said!



  37. 37

    He's getting what he wants _ LOTS of media face time (which he normally doesn't receive and hasn't for a couple of decades now). Cameron was a teen/child star, lets not forget and that fame bug affects him as it does any of them (even if he wraps it up in "evangelizing" today). Most media preachers are attracted to the attention. And he's getting it. His views are his own. And he's entitled to them. THE DIFFERENCE would be that they're not really, truly solicited or any more important than the opinions of the next 7 billion people. That ego on his part would cause him to think it is, though. Personally, I think he's only being asked, interviewed and expressing this opinion (which is nothing radically new or anything, mind you) for POLITICAL reasons as its an election year. Its the Moral Majority's way of politicking to pseudo-talk issues like gays and abortion. Its not truly about those issues as much as they're easy political hot topics prompting the right to get scared and vote a particular way. Cameron is a phony on that account. A phony preacher as his mission is much more about his own camera face time and politics.



  38. 38

    The issue we face in America is over a union between a man and a man or a woman and a woman. The definition of marriage is a union between a man and a woman, hence the word marriage doesnt quite fit for homosexuals looking to form a union of love or a civil union as we call it today. Do we change the meaning? And if we change the meaning, does that allow us to change the meaning of any word?



  39. 39

    So funny how you can spew gay rights and force your agenda on us, most of whom aren't gay, yet you have such a problem with others expressing their opinion on the matter. This country has done extremely well with Christianity being at the forefront morals of our government for hundreds of years. Just becuase the bible doesn't agree with your lifestyle don't slam the people who believe. If I wanted reports on gay rights I would go look for a LGBT site. I beg of you, PLEASE get back to what you used to be good at, entertainment reporting!



  40. 40

    Re: Jildo! – If he had said he doesn't believe in interracial marriage he would be called a bigot without dispute and you know that. There shouldn't be a difference between the attitude toward interracial marriage and gay marriage in this country. The truth is is that if you are against gay rights then you ARE a bigot in every sense of the word. It's just that simple. And by the way, the same people who are against same sex marriage today would have been against interracial marriage back then. If you disagree you're delusional. It's 2012, people. We should be hundreds of years past this kind of shit.



  41. 41

    Go Kirk! He has every right to an opinion. This is America, not Cuba or Iran. Im gay - and Id gladly fight for the right for an American to express himself freely. (And no, there is no special exemption for speech a blogger arbitrarily determines somehow impedes civil rights. Sheesh)



  42. 42

    Re: Genghis Khan – how nice of you to point out that some people will never accept gay people. but guess what, some people will never accept black people, and some people will never accept jews, and some people will never accept atheists, and some people will never accept christians, and some people will never accept interracial marriage, and on and on and on…………… what's more important are more and more people are accepting the notion that everyone deserves equal rights and more and more people are getting sick of people spewing their bigotry and hate.



  43. 43

    Everybody stop, take a step back, and look at this situation. You are so quick to say that everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but this is not just an opinion. Mr. Cameron explicitly, not implicitly, stated that homosexuality is a destructive force to our nation. These words are poisonous and harmful. It's not just an opinion if you want to create legislation in this country that would take away the rights of certain individuals based solely on the way they were born.
    And please, stop acting so righteous. If this man had said he was against interracial marriage he would have been called a bigot without question. How is this any different? The difference is that interracial marriage was the issue at hand in our previous generation, and gay marriage is the issue at hand for ours. That's it. Twenty years from now you will look back and wonder how you were able justify the discrimination of millions of people in this country.
    Mr. Cameron's comments were not only judgmental, hurtful, and bigoted, but they were dangerous to a society of young people who are killing themselves because of words like these that they see on the news pertaining people who don't even know them declaring their lives a sin because of the way they were born. There is no neutral stance on this issue. You're either for civil rights or against them. You choose which side of history you are on.

    46

    Re: joethehobo – Very well said. Very similar to GLADD's recent rebuttal.
    "Saying that gay people are ‘detrimental to civilization’ might be ‘loving’ in Kirk Cameron’s mind, but it’s gay youth and victims of bullying who truly suffer from adults like Cameron who spout these ideas. Cameron used his platform to attack gay Americans and is now attempting to play victim in an effort to sell his upcoming movie. That Cameron would risk the health and safety of young people in order to do so speaks for itself.
    *So many Americans, popular celebrities and Christian leaders have stood up and said his views are out of touch. The fundamental dignity of gay people should no longer be a debate in this country. Obviously, Cameron has the right to recite his anti-gay talking points, just like fair-minded Americans have the right to tell him that his views are harmful and have no place in modern America.”



  47. 47

    Sorry Kirk Cameron … but your 'personal beliefs' don't impress me … your personal behave about things might make the difference ! ! !



  48. 48

    you are part of the problem. Stop bullying people because they don't agre with you. There are civil unions and marraiges across the country. You too can get screwed out of half your income if you so choose.

    Re: joethehobo – The Bible doesn't condemn marriage and sexual relationships between a man and woman of a different race, but God does make his views very clear on that between two people of the same sex.



  51. 51

    Re: joethehobo – The right to free speech is one of the reasons this country was started to begin with! Nobody should ever be called an asshole for simply stating how he feels in a perfectly respectful way. He wasn't filled with anger or hatred. He was simply stating his opinion, unlike Perez, who always has a temper tantrum and resorts to playground like name calling everytime somebody disagrees with him.
    And I wouldn't care if somebody said they were against inter-racial marriage either! Who gives a shit what other people think, as long as they aren't being hateful or abusive?
    There is never going to be this "perfect society" of people who all live in harmony and just want peace and love. There is ALWAYS going to be people of differing opinions. The way to make this country better is to acknowledge and respect those opinions even if we don't agree with them. Nobody should have to keep their mouth shut or refuse to answer a question because they are afraid people won't like what they have to say. Many, many people gave their lives to give us that freedom, and we owe it to them and ourselves to make sure they didn't die for nothing.

    What would people say if Kirk said "I don't believe black people have the right to marry?" It's all the same thing.



  55. 55

    Re: sanitywins – You're comparing apples and oranges. Kirk's objection to same-sex marriage is based in his faith, which states that a marriage is between a man and a woman. The Bible is silent on interracial marriage.



  56. 56

    Whoa, what dark ages rock has this clown been hiding under.
    Why must every sitcom star start voicing their weird ass views on the world anyway.
    He and Patrica Heaton need to just go the f away!!! NoBody cares what you think!!



  57. 57

    Perez, you need to chill, not everyone is going to have the same beliefs as you. I think it is so ridiculous that a journalist would ask any religous person about homosexuality and gay marriage, when they know full well what the answer is going to be. Most Christians do not support homosexuality, and it's futile trying to change their minds.



  58. 58

    Re: sanitywinsRe: Meggie246524 – Take the bible out of the equation and it is not apples and oranges, it is a fair comparison. Remember, people used the bible to defend segregation as well.

    He has the right to believe whatever he wants just as I do. I believe he's wrong. I choose to ignore him and those who follow him.



  60. 60

    Calling him an asshole is so hypocritcal. That is hate and that is bullying. Any time someone doesn't agree with the gay community they are automatically labeled as horrible people and that's so unfair. Sorry Perez but your comments are just as bad.



  61. 61

    He might be ignorant, but in a sense, he does actually have a point. You can believe what he believes without actually being hateful. You can't believe it without being an ignoramus, though.



  62. 62

    Once again I applaud Kirk for not only standing up for what is moral, but speaking from his heart nothing but the truth! And yes it is very interesting when people who choose to be gay cry "foul" beause not everyone else agrees with their immoral ways, and yet they want tolerance to jusstify their sin.

    I agree: Yawn. Just b/c this asshat can string a coherent sentence together doesn't make him any less of a bigot. HE preaches love, but practices hatred. What a fool.

    Re: rosebud99 – Telling someone to take their faith out of the issue is like telling someone to remove their common sense, or to ignore their value system, or to disregard everything that makes them who they are. Can't be done.

    Re: rosebud99 – Atheists supported segregation as well. Can't lay those kinds of examples only on those who follow the Bible's teachings.

    Perez, no one sticks up for you more than I do but you are wrong here. If you want to debate what Kirk said then you should be cool, collected and well-spoken like he was.



  69. 69

    Perez, I think you're a heterophobe!



  70. 70

    I applaud him! He spoke his mind and he is being honest. It's the small minded drones that don't understand what he was truly saying. He believes in his faith and in his faith, homosexuality is not natural. Deal with it. Not my cup of tea, but at least he lives in his truth.

    Re: fanfanfan – Couldn't agree more. This is getting sickening that people can't tolerate a difference of ANY kind! Just sickening.



  72. 72

    Re: Meggie246524 – While I agree that racism and bigotry cross all boundries, including atheism - just out of curiosity, was there really athiests speaking out for segregation? Back in the 60's, saying you were atheist garnered more hatred than being black.



  73. 73

    Held accountable? Really Perez? Exactly what does that mean? He's owning it, it's his opinion and he has the balls to speak! WOW, let's tolerate it Perez, just let it be what it is. You need to simmer down - passion can sometimes come across as being judgmental…be careful.



  74. 74

    I believe your reactions are going too far. He's not helping spew hate, he's not helping bullies and homophobes become violent and taking it out on innocent people and he's not saying he hates the gay community. He's just using his right of personal opinion and the right to state it in a public forum instead of living in a world of secrets and silence. Seem a little familiar? Yeah, it's not nice to live that way.

    Why should he change his moral stance just to satisfy a certain group of people? Be nice Perez because that little article you've posted and others pertaining to this kind of thing tend to be very mean spirited and over the top. I don't need to agree with somebody to still treat them with respect and allow them the right to their own thoughts and opinions.



  75. 75

    Perez I love you for this post. Kirk Cameron is a very strange guy, any person who needs religion in order to be a good person is not evolved. Religion sucks!!



  76. 76

    i disagree with him its not ok to call someone whos retarded a retard and say they are a blotch on society so why should it be ok to say that gay people are a problem to society thats degradment just the same as if he kicked a retarded person and no ITS NOT OK TO SAY IT u had a run of everyone saying oh its ok for christian to hate on gays NO ITS NOT OK HES NOT JUST A ASSHOLE HES A FUCKING ASSHOLE CUN*T u can have ur stinkin beleifs but its not ok for u to openly ABUSE GAYS and not expect to be called upon it..



  77. 77

    WHY SHOULD ALL OTHER GROUPS SPEAK OUT FOR EQUALITY AND NOT GAY PEOPLE they have AS MUCH RIGHT FOR EQUALITY THAN ANYONE NOONE HAS A RIGHT TO OPENLY ABUSE GAYS people like this guy need to be put back in the closet where he was himself or come out and say hey im gay too…



  78. 78

    simply put if ur attacking gay people under any GUISE THAT MAKES U a fucking homophobe ..



  79. 79

    Perez, I am so sick of you throwing around words like 'hate', 'intolerant', 'narrow minded and 'fear' just because people like me don't agree with the homosexual lifestyle. I am a Christian and I do not agree with homosexuality or same sex marriage, however my opinion does not make me homophobic and it doesn't mean that I hate homosexuals. People are free to live their lives as they want, as they say, each to their own but it doesn't mean I have to agree with it. You need to understand that people are allowed to have differences on views, opinions and beliefs and stop trying to shove your opinions down our throats.

    Re: krytak – If you disagree with allowing gays to get married, you are a biggot and you are adding fuel to the hate fire. If you are not gay, I fail to see how allowing someone else to marry who they care for affects you. You don't like gay marriage? Then don't marry a gay person - but don't block their will to do so. The blood of youth suicides, gay bashing, and general violence against gays is on your hands. You can't argue this fact because it's in your own words, words which have consequences. The very notion 'well, my religion tells me it's wrong' is unfair to others who don't share your religious views and beliefs. In my mind, your religion is wrong and if you choose to follow a religion that encourages hate and pain to others, then maybe it's time you seek a new religion or drop religion all together. Gone are the days where man should be worshiping some false 'guy in the sky'. Use your brains, people - quit being brainwashed by some book that has never been proven to be true and was written by man himself.

    For all those of you who say that this is not hate, think again. He is condoning discrimination. If discrimination is not hate, then what is it? How many South Africans claimed to 'not hate' blacks, but at the same time supported apartheid? Discrimination = hate.

    Re: 7tizz – well said i was thinking same thing they had contradicted themselves to say on one hand people can live how they want and on the other disagreed with gay marraige how is that allowing people to live how they want to live ..

    if christians say people can live how they want to live then u would allow them to marry who they want to marry

    You can have all the opinions you want, but one things for sure… ALL ARE EQUAL under the U.S Constitution.

    We could solve this little gay problem by rounding them up and eradicating them. Holocaust on the LGBT? YES PLEASE.



  88. 88

    Re: MissEquisite – Too bad marriage is not a right. Which means we can keep LGBT from getting married. Even if the government allows it, you would still have to go up against the church, something the government would have no power over. LGBT's are fighting a losing war. The fact the government waste soo much time on an issue that isn't covered by the constitution tells you exactly how retarded they are.



  89. 89

    Re: Wrenn – Thank you for falling into the trap many simple minded people like you walk right into all of the time. The separation of church and state is one of the most important foundations of this country. The fact that you want to create legislation to take away the rights of your fellow citizens based on which of the many religions you choose to worship is a classic example of pushing a religious agenda upon the citizens of this supposedly free country. People like you are so delusional that you attempt to use the bible as evidence and worst of all justification to create discriminatory and bigoted legislation in this country. Don't get me wrong, I support your right to worship any 'gods' you see fit, but you simply do not have the right to call my life immoral based on the way you believe your 'god' created me, and you certainly don't have the right to take my rights away.



  90. 90

    Re: Christina80 – The reason why we 'give a shit' about what people think is because apparently these people have the ability to take the rights away of anyone they want in this country. How nice for you that you have the liberty of not having to care about what people think because YOUR rights aren't in jeopardy.

    Re: krytak – I'm sorry to inform you, but saying you are against the homosexual lifestyle does make you intolerant.

    How can you claim that "people are free to live the life they want" when you are admittedly giving your best efforts to make that untrue for homosexuals and their rights? Do you really not see this?

    You tell me I'm immoral because of the way you believe your god created me. I can't believe it's 2012 and we still have people using the bible to oppress others. You personally have a part in that, as you have admitted.

    Re: NookiesWA – Hitler has been re-incarnated. This is the problem with you ignorant, extreme conservatives. You think because something is not explicitly stated in the Constitution it therefore means that Americans don't have that right. Using your logic, heterosexuals don't have the right to marry either! The founding fathers could not foresee the future, and therefore, everything we should or shouldn't have a right to isn't necessarily listed in it. The Constitution is also meant to provide the appropriate spirit under which the American country was meant to be governed for future generations, and indicated the tone laws should have. If it's not in the Constitution, it's not a right….you GOP idiots are grasping at straws.

    Re: NookiesWA – We're also talking about equal civil liberties here. Is the government "retarded" for passing laws that made gave blacks equal rights in this country in the wake of the Civil Rights Movement? This is the same situation, different demographic.

    Re: joethehobo – Do you even hear the hypocrisy in your words? You care about certain rights…but not others? How does that even make sense? People like you are trying to take away MY right to free speech. And whether you like it or not, this country is a democracy and we ALL have the RIGHT to make our voices heard. If you don't agree with that then why don't you go find some nice communist country to live in where everybody just shuts their mouths so they don't stir up any controversy or trouble. I am not saying people shouldn't defend themselves and try to promote change in a positive way. I am saying that fighting hatred with more hatred and name calling is completely ridiculous and hypocritical. And yes, it is quite nice for me that I don't give a shit what people think. I live my life for me, regardless of what other people think. If I couldn't marry the person I wanted, I would work hard to change that and to change others views..but I am not going to have a tantrum and lash out at the people who don't agree with me. So yeah, you are right……very nice for me.

  98. 98

    I support gay rights and see no problem with it (and I'm a republican - we do exist), but you calling the opposite view "outdated" is ridiculous. All because it still exists when so much progress is being made on the subject doesn't make people who disagree with gay rights/marriage outdated. It just means their opinion is different than those who do support it. You really need to realize that and stop attacking people for not supporting gay marriage or whatever the hell else involving gay people. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and the country is clearly still split on it since we are making headway, but not enough to have a positive opinion sweep through the nation. Geez, you act like 99% of Americans support homosexuals. Uh, check again.

    Re: Christina80 – Since when have I attempted to take away the right of free speech? Free speech is the most important thing we have in this country. What comes with the right to free speech is the right to think someone is completely bat-shit crazy. Mr. Cameron has influence, whether you want to deny it or not. He simply would not have been invited on Piers Morgan's show if he didn't have influence. Now as someone with the influence that Mr. Cameron has, he is subjected to more scrutiny than most because his destructive words hold more weight than someone else's would.

    I don't think anyone here has even suggested taking away free speech, and I'm not even sure how you rationalized that. The only thing that has happened here is some idiot preaching intolerance is getting some well deserved backlash from it. Why don't you save the whole "you're trying to take away MY rights" bit and try and feel some compassion for those whose rights really ARE being taken away here.
