The washed-up TV actor recently suggested in an interview with AL.com that the church might be better off shifting its focus from opposing same-sex marriage to instead raising the moral standards of heterosexual relationships.
“When people get too focused on redefining marriage, you’re distracted from the bigger problem — fornicators and adulterers,” Cameron told AL.com. “If the people sitting in the pews are fornicators and adulterers, the church will destroy marriage much more quickly than those outside the church.”
He continued: “I think the greatest threat to marriage is not other people’s definition of marriage. The church isn’t taking God’s definition of marriage seriously. It’s not other people sabotaging marriage that’s the problem.”
Cameron, of course, has been a vocal opponent against marriage quality and gay people in general for years. In the past, he’s called gay people “unnatural,” “detrimental,” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” We’re not quite sure what to make of his latest comments.
His latest comments offer a different stance from one he made back in January, when he said same-sex marriage was “an all out assault on the traditional family.”
Of course, we’re not holding our breath that the aged teen idol will soon be hanging up his bigot hat and joining the forces of good. But if this is a sign that he may stop running his mouth on the issue, that would be enough for us.
