Why anyone would want to interview Kirk Cameron is beyond most of us given that the man has been known to be a bit on the weirdly scary. In fact, Cameron has been known to all but froth at the mouth over his religious beliefs, and he tends to annoy just about everyone around him who is not a fellow Evangelical.
Last night, on Piers Morgan, Cameron decided to attack homosexuality and same-sex marriage by saying “I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
Of course, what one sees as unnatural depends on their cultural background. For instance, someone who sees the world as centering around homosexuality might see the world through homonormative eyes and find homosexuality as being unnatural.
Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, though, told TMZ that “he feels Cameron, a Born Again Christian, is ‘out of step with a vast majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.’”
Cameron has been lampooned and had a lot of difficulty with his career since he was on Growing Pains. The big part of the reason why Cameron has had trouble with his career has been the fact that he has pushed his religious beliefs on his costars.
