Kirk Cameron Climbs On A Cross To Defend His Homophobic Rhetoric

Kirk Cameron has really been battered and bruised by us gays after he called us “unnatural” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” The onslaught of abuse has been so bad, he’s barely been able to turn it into a lucrative speaking tour at right-wing outlets like Liberty University, where he recently held forth.

“Sometimes, when a Christian is asked a question and has a conviction about not backing down and wussing out…it can get you into some hot water,” the washed-up actor told impressionable students. “It seems I hit the side of a hornet’s nest when I answered a question.”

Cameron also told students at the religious college that “blasphemy laws are still alive and well in America” and that his critics tried to “crucify me” because he blasphemed “the God of Political Correctness.”

Worried he wouldn’t be able to line his coffers deeply enough with the check Liberty U gave him, Cameron also talked up his documentary Monumental, which is all about the Puritans fled Europe and settled in Massachusetts Bay. We’re not sure what history books Cameron read, but he claimed the Puritans supported “limiting the powers of government” and “religious and political freedom, freedom of speech.”

As we recall, the Puritans were a pretty severe bunch who didn’t exactly embrace diversity, religious freedom or even the separation of Church and State. Y’know, the folks with all those stern black outfits, floggings and banishments?

      Right wing moron preaches to other right wing morons. The good thing is their rapidly ageing base, we are winning through education and attrition, they’ll be dead and intelligent, moral society can finally win.

      So if Mitt Romney was elected and outlawed coffee and soda because that was part of HIS religion, Cameron is saying he would have no problem with it?

      Oh wait, thats right, it’s only religious freedome when it’s HIS religion.

      From a story on how old the earth is comments someone listed as tony

      Top Ten Signs You’re a Fundamentalist Christian

      10 – You vigorously deny the existence of thousands of gods claimed by other religions, but feel outraged when someone denies the existence of yours.

      9 – You feel insulted and “dehumanized” when scientists say that people evolved from other life forms, but you have no problem with the Biblical claim that we were created from dirt.

      8 – You laugh at polytheists, but you have no problem believing in a Triune God.

      7 – Your face turns purple when you hear of the “atrocities” attributed to Allah, but you don’t even flinch when hearing about how God/Jehovah slaughtered all the babies of Egypt in “Exodus” and ordered the elimination of entire ethnic groups in “Joshua” including women, children, and trees!

      6 – You laugh at Hindu beliefs that deify humans, and Greek claims about gods sleeping with women, but you have no problem believing that the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary, who then gave birth to a man-god who got killed, came back to life and then ascended into the sky.

      5 – You are willing to spend your life looking for little loopholes in the scientifically established age of Earth (few billion years), but you find nothing wrong with believing dates recorded by Bronze Age tribesmen sitting in their tents and guessing that Earth is a few generations old.

      4 – You believe that the entire population of this planet with the exception of those who share your beliefs — though excluding those in all rival sects – will spend Eternity in an infinite Hell of Suffering. And yet consider your religion the most “tolerant” and “loving.”

      3 – While modern science, history, geology, biology, and physics have failed to convince you otherwise, some idiot rolling around on the floor speaking in “tongues” may be all the evidence you need to “prove” Christianity.

      2 – You define 0.01% as a “high success rate” when it comes to answered prayers. You consider that to be evidence that prayer works. And you think that the remaining 99.99% FAILURE was simply the will of God.

      1 – You actually know a lot less than many atheists and agnostics do about the Bib

      My heart goes out to Kirk. What a shame that such a gifted actor’s career be in the toilet. And, like all good christians in the USA, he’s persecuted daily for his beliefs. I mean, who is more persecuted than christians, right? I really feel for them.

      He and Paul Ryan look like they could be brothers. It might be the bird face. Especially after those embarrassing 80’s sitcom-teen-hearthrob style photos Ryan took for Time.

      Oldest schtick in the book.

      1) Say something incredibly stupid, offensive and insulting.

      2) When people react, claim that their reaction is oppression, while your original statement was just your deeply-held beliefs. Demand that they be silenced.

      3) Revel in the short-lived spotlight of media whoredom after decades out of cultural relevance. Cash it in.

      4) When the spotlight fades, repeat step 1.

      Relax.

      Calm down.

      Don’t make the foolish mistake of judging the whole barrel by a few or even many bad apples.
