The Christian Left shared a hilarious video featuring American comic actors Michael Cornacchia and Kristina Hayes. Posted last weekend, it is a response to fellow actor Kirk Cameron, who recently made controversial remarks in an interview on CNN about homosexuality, stating, “I think that it’s - it’s - it’s unnatural. I think that it’s - it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
He also remarked:
“Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don’t think anyone else should either.”
Kirk Cameron was popular in the 1980s as the teenage star of the sitcom Growing Pains. In his later adulthood, he became an outspoken voice for the American religious right, starring in a series of direct-to-video-and-church-basements disaster movies based on the Biblical Apocalypse, as well as teaming up with celebrity creationist Ray Comfort in some rather unintentionally hilarious videos “debunking” evolutionary science.
Mr. Cameron’s views are hardly on the fringe on United States culture. Along with access to birth control, gay equality has become one of the shibboleths dividing left from right in the rhetoric-filled ramp up to the US Presidential election. Former Republican candidate Michelle Bachmann defended the actor’s statements, saying “If anyone gets attacked in this country, it’s people who stand for traditional marriage. I mean you just brought up Kirk Cameron, right now, and his comments. He’s the one who is getting trashed right now; he’s the one who is getting called a bigot.”
Actually, I believe the term they used was “douchebag”.
