Growing Pains' Mike Seaver (Kirk Cameron) is at it again! After last weekend's eye-rolling interview with Piers Morgan in which he labeled homosexuality as “unnatural… detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization,” now Kirk is all butt sore after being rightly told by GLAAD and any number of intelligent people that he's full of shit. From ABC News:
In an email statement released exclusively to ABCNews.com today, Cameron said that when Morgan asked him to share his views on homosexuality, “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,” he said, “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.”
He concluded, “I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect,” and added, “I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally).”
Oh, BOO-HOO-HOO! Poor widdle bigot got his poor widdle feewings hurt. By the way, Kirk: If you're going to spew hate, don't act shocked and offended when it gets spit back in your face. And by the way... WHO ARE THESE GAY FRIENDS OF WHICH YOU SPEAK??? Produce them. (And no, your closeted pastor doesn't count!)
