The Tolerant Left Attacks Kirk Cameron

Is this irony or what? The so-called gay community blasts Kirk Cameron (star of TV’s Growing Pains and films like Left Behind and Fireproof) as a “hater” for expressing his personal views on homosexual behavior. He, like more than half the American adult population, believes that homosexuality is a sin. Each time homosexual marriage comes up for a vote, a majority of voters say no. Even voters in liberal California voted to oppose homosexual marriage. It’s the courts and state legislatures that have overruled the will of the people.

At the same time, it seems that no one in the upper echelons of the entertainment business sees a problem with the new ABC show GCB. “GCB” stands for “Good Christian Bitches.” It’s OK for Hollywood, talk show hosts, comedians, and entertainers to express themselves on the issue of homosexuality, but don’t let anyone else express a contrary opinion. Cameron, while promoting his film Monumental, got hit with today’s gotcha question — homosexuality and homosexual marriage on the Piers Morgan show.

Isn’t this liberal hypocrisy? Sure it is. I understand how the tolerance game is played. It goes like this:

All views are accepted and tolerated except for any view that states that not all views are accepted and tolerated, unless it’s Islam because these people will lop your head off if they consider what you say to be disagreeable to them.

I’ve experienced this first hand. Several years ago I was asked to participate in a panel discussion on homosexuality and the workplace. There was a studio audience. As soon as I expressed my opinion, the pro-homosexuals in attendance – a majority – began to hoot and holler, blow whistles, and throw out the typical phrases like “separation of church and state” and “moral fascist.” They remind me of the Bible’s description of the execution of Stephen:

“Now when they heard [Stephen’s words], they were cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth at him. . . . But they cried out with a loud voice, and covered their ears, and they rushed upon him with one impulse (Acts 7:54, 57).

Character assassination is a liberal pastime in America.

Everybody knows that homosexual behavior is not normal, rational, or moral. Am I overstating the case? No! It’s not much different from cigarette smokers. Every smoker knows that inhaling smoke is bad for them. In time, some people act on the evidence, but there are millions more who behave contrary to what they know to be true.

No amount of rationalization can turn homo-sex (same-sex) into something normative, and anyone who points this out must be shouted down, badgered, and eliminated from public discourse. That’s what organizations representing the homosexual lifestyle are trying to do to Kirk Cameron. One news headline puts it like this:

GLAAD Slams Kirk Cameron for Anti-Gay Comments

Cameron is not backing down, and neither is he taking the low road. He speaks with conviction and compassion to homosexuals.

“Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve,” Cameron told Morgan. “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. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t. [Homosexual behavior is] unnatural… I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Homosexual pressure groups are working hard to silence Cameron. They’ve done it to others in the entertainment business and elsewhere. Cameron is not the typical actor. He’s his own man who does not need Hollywood to authenticate himself, his family, or his values. We all could take some lessons form him
