Mike Seaver Catching Flack from Homosexuals in Spite of Having Childhood Friend Named Boner

Former Growing Pains star and Christian entertainment favorite Kirk Cameron is getting the hot searchlight of the multicultural thought police shined in his window because he said something uncomplimentary about teh gayz:

Kirk Cameron, once the heartthrob of many because of his “Growing Pains” tenure as All-American teen Mike Seaver, has spent the last few weeks on the receiving end of criticism following comments he made on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” about homosexuality. 

On Tuesday morning, Cameron attempted to fight back against the criticism and deflect some of the blame onto the media. 

When “Today’s” Ann Curry asked Cameron about his comments — which included him calling homosexuality “unnatural” and “destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization” — Cameron responded: “I love all people. I hate no one. When you take a subject and reduce it to something like a four-second sound bite and a check mark on a ballot, I think that’s inappropriate and insensitive. The truth is that these are issues that are very personal. These are things that need to be discussed best, I believe, in the context of a personal friendship of someone who’s asking the question. So when things get edited down it doesn’t reflect, it certainly didn’t reflect my full heart on the matter.” 

… 

Not willing to take things lying down, Morgan responded to Cameron’s finger-pointing on Twitter, saying, “Kirk Cameron is moaning everywhere today that I stitched him up by releasing a 4-second ‘soundbite’ re his comments on gay marriage. These are the 4 seconds: homosexuality is ‘unnatural..detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization’. Mr Cameron ‘stands by the comments’, despite his whining. So I’ll let others decide if he was stitched up…or just a bigot. Re #KirkCameron, I respect his religious beliefs — just don’t respect his use of bigoted, inflammatory language re homosexuality. End.”

Lesson 1: Piers Morgan is an ass. When a “journalist” backs someone into a corner to try to create a controversy and bump up the ratings on his show, the professional thing to do is at least pretend like that’s not what he intended all along. But I’ll let others decide if he’s a poser…or just a tool. End.

So now Kirk is furiously backpedaling, trying to prevent flanking maneuvers from the rest of the press and homosexual advocacy groups–who are trying to make him out to be as anti-gay as a biker bar on fleet week. (Wait, what?)

In trying to fend off the criticism, Cameron is speaking with admirable grace and compassion, but none of that matters next to the opportunity to publicly bar-b-q an evangelical Christian. It would be nice if we could have reasonable public discourse about issues like this. Unfortunately we are way past that point.

  1. Well put. It’s ok to judge and say that Christians are bigots, but it’s not ok for Christians to merely disagree with someone’s moral values as Kirk Cameron is doing. I don’t see him judging gays, just disagreeing with their behavior. When will the world get that disagreeing is not hating? They won’t, because they like playing the role of victim in the never-ending saga of moral decay.

    Piers Morgan is nothing more than a glorified cockfighter, pitting two opposing moral views against each other for his own gain.
