In a striking blow this week to the gay community. 80's sitcom star Kirk Cameron let loose with the idea that he thinks homosexuality is a "sin" and "unnatural". I can't imagine anything more devastating to gays all over the world. And worse yet, Cameron is a Christian!
Ok, honestly, did anyone think Kirk Cameron thought homosexuality was 'neat-o' or a 'sweet deal' or 'pure as the driven snow'??
Let's set aside for a second the fact that Cameron was 100% right. If you are a homosexual and you are calling "hate speech" on an 80's sitcom star who you already hate anyway, what does that say about your stance, or your belief in your own lifestyle?
It would be like me getting upset that some C-list celebrity thinks organized religion is stupid? Or that going to church and praying was the cause of 9/11. One, it has no affect on what I believe because I believe what I believe is truth.. so someone making a statement to the contrary of what I believe does not change anything. Two, It's just some guy! I would carry on as usual and pay little if any attention to it.
Sometimes the reaction someone gives to opposition will tell a lot about their belief in their own morals. Is the homosexual community at any threat whatsoever by Kirk Cameron's words? Is it a great mystery that evangelical Christians think that sex outside the confines between a married man and woman is wrong? Who is this news to? Are the thought police going to come and punish Kirk Cameron for what he believes in his brain? Beliefs are sacred, You can only try to persuade someone otherwise.. you cannot jail them or beat them for stating a thought. At least you shouldn't be able to. This is America!
I'm a Christian. I believe Kirk Cameron was right on. In fact I think you can make an argument that Kirk Cameron would have been right on if he were a Darwinian Evolutionist. But that's not the point. The point is that I think we are headed to a time in America that expressing an opinion can get you punished. And that is so gay!
So challenge to gays.. Rebut Mr. Cameron, don't call him names. Tell us why he is wrong in a non-confrontational way. Show your cards. If Kirk Cameron was anything, he was loving, friendly, and articulate. Can you respond in kind?
