Kirk Cameron Says 'Fornicators And Adulterers' Bigger Problem Than Gay Marriage



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/05/kirk-cameron-gay-marriage_n_5267934.html

Beloved '80s sitcom star Kirk Cameron is once again making headlines for his controversial views on marriage, and this time he has some pointed advice for Christians.

In an interview with AL.com, Cameron said that Christians need to focus their energies on cleaning up their own acts, rather than making the fight against marriage equality their number one priority.

"When people get too focused on redefining marriage, you're distracted from the bigger problem -- fornicators and adulterers," Cameron stated. "If the people sitting in the pews are fornicators and adulterers, the church will destroy marriages much more quickly than those outside the church. When God's people mock marriage, God doesn't take that lightly."

Cameron has a long history of anti-gay sentiment and remains arguably one of the most vehemently outspoken anti-gay celebrities. The former "Growing Pains" star previously called the Grammys' same-sex marriage ceremony an "assault on the traditional family" and called same-sex attraction "unnatural" and "ultimately destructive."

4. Although I DO think he's a washed-up, religious nutbag....

 

He's finally making something akin to sense. He's actually correct to tell his followers and many others that they should pay attention to correcting their own shortcomings and sins rather then spend so much time on other people's. He must have read one of the versions of Matthew 7:3 which says, in the KJV:

And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?

Or in more modern translations something like:

And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own?

Pretty clear instruction to mind one's own house before speaking ill of and judging another's.

8. Not really

He's still trying to tell consensual adults what they should be doing in the privacy of their own bedrooms. I don't see much difference other than he's calling out the hypocrisy of Christians which is already a given when you consider Christians fornicate and adulterate at pretty much the same rate as everyone else. He still a has-been that would greatly benefit from a heavy dose of mind-your-own-fucking-business.

11. Because sex sells even if it takes the form of telling other people how they can do it

You can't very well be holier-than-thou unless you have some way in which to occupy the moral high ground, even if it's a lie.

24. He makes a good point. Gay bashing "Christians" don't like talking about Fornication...

 

...sex without procreation, masturbation, lust or eating shellfish.

Kirk Cameron was once a child star, so I'd like to ask him why he's kept quiet about the sexual abuse of young children in Hollywood. If he was not a victim, I'm sure he knows someone who was.

Its not like he's using religion to keep himself afloat and has plans to return to Hollywood, right? ...right?

26. He's right.

Adultery requires dishonesty (unless the other partner approves then who cares?.) Gay marriage doesn't. I'm surprised to see him take this viewpoint, because right wing fundies tend to want to go after the "other" because they are the easy target. I don't care about other people's personal life, or even if they commit adultery, but I do agree with the title statement. However, in my case, not because a 2,000 year old book says so (or think gay marriage is bad in anyway), but because I think dishonesty is bad.

35. At least he's being honest unlike most in the anti-gay industry.

the funny thing about the anti-gay industry is that they devote themselves to telling all these lies about LGBT people when ignoring the sins of heterosexuals.

37. Most born agains are the most immoral people around.

He has a point as most fundies spend their times condemning others while engaging the same acts they condemn.
