Kirk Cameron and Gay Marriage
WATCH THE VIDEO OF THE INTERVIEW HERE:
Kirk Cameron has been getting slammed for his comments on Gay Marriage. I have listened to his answers over and over. I have listened to the questions he was asked, over and over. Did he come across as hating anybody? No. Disagreeing with anybody? Certainly.
If someone asked you point blank, do you support gay marriage, what would your answer be?
What will you tell your children about homosexuality when the time comes? It is a prevalent part of our culture, and will have to be addressed whether you want to or not.
If your child comes to you and tells you that he or she is gay, how will you respond to them?
Kirk Cameron didn't go out and force these opinions on anybody. He didn't go on the show to attack anybody. He simply said he believes that God designed marriage in the garden of Eden with Adam and Eve.
The strongest terms he used was when he was asked point-blank if he believed homosexuality is a sin. He should have pointed to scripture, perhaps, and let God's word do the talking, but he tried to identify human reasons to show why homosexuality is not good for civilization. Though I might have handled it differently, I believe his point was that history has shown the best set up for a home is a married man and woman to raise the children together.
Children need both a mother and a father. What is the argument against this? The booming success of our culture today compared to...?
I guess I don't understand what the controversy is all about. Don't ask a man what he believes, then accuse him of "attacking" someone by answering.
"Do you like the Detroit Lions? You don't? Why do you hate Lions' fans so much?"
NEWS REPORT: "Man says he hates Lions' fans! Hate speech must be silenced!"
Read the questions he was asked one more time. What would you have said?
