If it’s one thing liberals know how to do is engage in coordinated attacks against conservatives and Christians. As soon as someone with a platform stands up and makes a statement or takes a position on a subject that is contrary to leftist ideology, the liberal attack machine goes to work.
Evangelist and actor Kirk Cameron has come under pressure by homosexuals for simply stating God’s view that marriage is between one man and one woman.
Appearing on CNN’s Peirs Morgan show to promote his new film Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure, Kirk was repeatedly badgered by the host to share his views on homosexuality.
Isn’t this typical. A conservative guest comes on a show to talk about one thing, and the Left diverts the content of the interview to a favorite liberal talking point.
Cameron told CNN’s Piers Morgan that marriage “was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve — one man, one woman for life.” He added that in his view, homosexuality is “socially destructive,” “unnatural,” “detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” Watch the CNN interview here.
Immediately, the homosexual media pressure group GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) began attacking Kirk as an “anti-gay extremist.” Any divergent view from the liberal norm is always an extremist view. And, the liberal Hollywood crowd wasted no time joining the hateful rhetoric. Nikki Sixx, the bass player of the rock band Mötley Crüe, blasted Cameron as “a–hole of the week.” The title of his autobiography is The Heroin Diaries: A Year in the Life of a Shattered Rock Star.
Then there’s Roseanne Barr who called Cameron “an accomplice to murder with his hate speech.” You may remember the time Barr dressed as Adolf Hitler — moustache and swastikas included — and baked “Jew Cookies” in an oven. When they’re “done,” she starts to eat them. Since she’s a comedian, there was no harm. It was supposed to be funny, even though it wasn’t. Liberals hide behind their comedy routine to deflect criticism. Here’s how one self-describe “centrist” commentator reported the story:
“When one first takes a look at the domestic Adolf Hitler/Roseanne Barr baking photos, one can’t help but think, ‘Wow, Sarah Palin has really let herself go in the past five days… And where’s her glasses?’ But upon closer inspection, one can see the inner Roseanne Barr hidden inside the Hitler, cooking sheet with burnt gingerbread men cookies.”
Even when criticizing disgusting liberal antics, leftists can’t refrain from taking shots at conservatives.
In referring to the CNN interview Cameron said, “I expressed the same views that are expressed clearly and emphatically throughout the Judeo-Christian scriptures. As a Bible-believing Christian, I could not have answered any other way…”
Increasingly, social bullies like GLADD are merciless in their attack on Christians who openly share their faith, and God’s truth that the homosexual lifestyle is sinful. Kirk is not ashamed of the Gospel and I think he deserves our thanks.
We need to follow Kirk’s example. There is no call to back down from what we know is right. If we stick together on these issues, we can beat back the ideological bullies. One way to do this is to connect with others of like mind. Blog about it. Write your friends. Post on social media networks. Yes, you’ll be criticized. That’s what the Left does. But keep at it. We need to show the bullies that they are not in charge, that their views are minority positions. They get their way because too many conservatives compromise and back down.
There’s no need to be nasty for derogatory. State your position and your support, pointing out that you will not back down.
