Kirk Cameron was interviewed by Piers Morgan on a variety of topics. Among them was the issue of homosexuality and marriage. Cameron asserted that marriage was defined by God and was as “old as dirt.” Further, he stated emphatically that no one should re-define. When asked if homosexuality was a sin, Cameron did offered a strong case for standards. Everyone makes moral judgments based on their standards. The former Growing Pains star added, “…homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental, and ultimately destructive.”
Morgan pursued another hot social issue–abortion. “Is abortion wrong?” asked the British host. Again, Cameron was direct and unbending:
“Abortion is wrong under any circumstances…I think that someone who is ultimately willing to murder a child, even to fix another tragic and devastating situation like rape or incest or things like that, is not taking the moral high road,” Cameron said. “I think that we’re compounding the problem by also murdering a little child.”
Cameron has become a staunch defender of the family, and has continued to use his platform to influence both his Christian audience, as well as provide orthodox commentary in an ocean of political correctness. May God bless Cameron’s work and words in the years ahead; and may he befuddle hosts with biblical clarity at every chance.
Update: GLAAD has already spoken out against Cameron by stating:
“Cameron is out of step with a growing 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.”
The argument for the “growing majority of Americans” is a common line from pundits in an age of vast immorality. The Christian faith is not dependent on the voice of the people. Our standards, as Cameron mentioned, are not subject to the consensus of the majority. As expected, biblical morality will be chastised and persecuted.
