Kirk Cameron Feels Assaulted By Gay Weddings On Grammys, But Still Wants You To Watch His Hideous Movie

Kirk Cameron is once again clutching his pearls. The former teen idol-turned-bigot was absolutely appalled — APPALLED! — by all the happy same-sex couples who were married during the Grammy awards Sunday night.

In a post to his Facebook page that’s since been deleted, Cameron described the event as an “all out assault” on the “traditional family” values he holds so dear.


Cameron quickly deleted and replaced that message with a slightly less-volatile post. In the latest he omitted any mention of the Grammys (fearing yet another P.R. nightmare, no doubt), but again touted his latest conservative-values opus, something titled Mercy Rule, which is more than we need to know about it:

As a parent, are you like me and my wife, always on the lookout for a fun, exciting new movie we can watch together as a family on “movie night”? Well instead of waiting, we made one!! This was a true labor of love for us and its a story about faith, family, and baseball for the WHOLE FAMILY. Your kids will love it! MERCY RULE is about a family who learns the important lessons of mercy, patience, sacrifice, legacy, and trusting God…and it comes with a family study guide and discussion questions so you can discuss the important things in this movie with your kids. Watch the official trailer here and share with your friends. Batter up!!

Maybe Queen Latifah should invite this jerk on her show and educate him on how thrilling it is to marry gay people.

    Well, I was appalled by the Grammys too, but not because of gay marriage. I was appalled by the lip-syncing that was going on.

    For an awards show dedicated to awarding talent, it’s a pretty poor show to feature miming.

  • RainboWarrioR

    fuuuuck you you worthless sack of human trash. i remember when i was a good bigoted selfhating in the closet gay christian i used to look up to this pos, now i cant wait for his ass to die so i can make a yearly pilgrimage to his grave so i can spit on it.

  • hephaestion

    Wow. Kirk Cameron is really ignorant.

  • chaddyboy6

    I am a gay Christian and I do not hate myself nor am I filled with self loathing. I know a lot of gay Christians who are not that way. That must have been a horrible thing. There are always people who will hate/not understand us. Perhaps instead of spewing hatred back we should practice what we preach-tolerance. And try to changed their minds.

    Frankly and objectively the Grammys is an entertainment show and like the Oscar should not push any agenda.

  • jimbryant

    Well, actually, I was appalled by the gimmicky nature of the gay weddings on the Grammys, but not by the actual right to marry.

  • TinoTurner

    I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve seen his movie Fireproof a few times when I’ve come across it on cable…its delightfully horrible and unintentionally funny. A woman find regular porn on her husbands computer and attempts to divorce him. He goes out of his way to make things right and she just wont take him back. It was porn…not murder but the movie makes it seem like its the same thing.

  • Stache1

    @TinoTurner: Umm..that’s very interesting but color me surprised that the stuff he makes is horrible. He’s got his little built in audience. Finding your way out of the darkness and into the light of Jesus. Yup. Real snooze fest to all but the faithful.

  • wilfredo267

    The sad part is the over one million likes

  • TerrenM

    @chaddyboy6: First off, no one pushed an ‘agenda’. A committed couple marrying on a music show is NO different than couples that get married on morning shows or talk shows. Happens everyday and NO ONE ever calls that an agenda. Secondly, can WE PLEASE stop using that hideous word ‘tolerance’? We HATE our boss, but TOLERATE him. We HATE a bad hair day, but we TOLERATE it. We HATE nasty, humid weather, but we TOLERATE it. ‘Tolerance’ is VERY 1995. The word, in my opinion, should be ACCEPTANCE.

  • richard

    “…As I recall Mr. Christian, Jesus Died of “Horrible Assaults.” You Pretend to be Christian. You have no right to get your panties in a bunch. You don’t know what “assault ” is in your Privileged Little Life !” Grow a Set, MARY !”

  • azrael73

    I actually wrote on his post…

    Kirk Cameron .. You sir are a douche.. and not the vaginal kind..
    I’m talking big ole anal douche…
    The kind you need before a good round of sodomy…

    I didn’t receive a response

  • nowliveit

    I would suggest to Mr. Cameron that he find a different spiritual path. Because if a dogmatic religion makes you feel so wounded by such a slight ripple in the wave of Kirk’s Ideal Kingdom then change your teacher and philosophy. My spiritual path has continued to empower me to be able to look within and not be interested in, much less become wounded by, other peoples’ beliefs and behaviors.

    Find a good cause to help all of humanity become uplifted if you want to use any good will left in the fans of Mike Seaver.

  • Ken

    If there’s something on television that I don’t want to watch, I use the handy on-off button. There’s one on the set and one on the remote control. Perhaps Kirk Cameron could investigate to see if that’s the case with his TV too. Then he won’t get either his dander or his blood pressure up.

  • Ken

    KIrk Cameron is using false logic. It goes like this:

    Jesus told Christians to love everybody.
    I am a Christian.
    Therefore I love everybody.
    Therefore whatever I say about gay people is loving.
    Gay people revile me for what I said, therefore I am being persecuted for my beliefs.

    The problem isn’t his religion, the problem is using a 15-Watt brain to resolve a 100-Watt issue.

  • Ken

    @TerrenM: I’d really like to get a copy of that agenda.

  • RainboWarrioR

    @chaddyboy6: uhh no. people like that there is no changing their minds. and i do not tolerate their hate. i will give what they dish out.

  • RainboWarrioR

    @TinoTurner: yeah remember the part where he takes his computer out yells at it and hits it with a bat? yeah its called you need psychiatric help

  • RainboWarrioR

    @RainboWarrioR: or did he just kick it or at it? i dont remember.

  • yaoming

    KC is using bigotry to promote a film no one has heard of? Good luck with that.

  • randalaw

    Does Mr. Cameron find the carnage of TV violence to be an assault on his senses? He doesn’t watch TV violence? Hmmmm. I guess he could have chosen not to watch the Grammies and could have avoided that assault. Of course, his sort of people thrive on watching things that they know they will find revolting and disgusting so that they can then complain to high heaven of their revulsion and disgust. More of the sound of one hand clapping . . .

  • jckfmsincty

    Organized religion will continue to become increasingly irrelevant because of people like this guy.

  • queertyreader

    Neither Queen Latifah nor anyone else should invite this homophobe onto his/her show. No one should give such a bigot a platform to spread his hateful views. Fortunately, God has already taken care of his by taking his career away. I mean, he’s basically not relevant anymore. The only times the press talks about him is because he is such a bigot.

  • SteveDenver

    Cameron thinks he and his ilk need to shape the world for “their” children. Isn’t his stupid ass supposed to get raptured out of her really soon? Religion is boring and Christians are stupid.

  • Daniel-Reader

    The Bible in the Book of Acts and the Book of Judges says that the Christian deity ordered the mass murder of women and children and the mass rape of virgin girls. No sane adult perpetuates any religion that has at its center a mass-child-murdering, mass-child-raping supernatural creature. The child-killing, child-raping Judeo-Christian-islamic desert deity is evil and is the anti-thesis of family values.

  • mz.sam

    The righteous Ms. Kirk needs to have his hateful phobic man-pussy exorcised by a divine fisting.

  • robirob

    Oh Kirk, just scratch that itch. Just scratch it and you will feel better. I promise.

  • Harley

    @robirob: he must have really sucked a lot of dick when he was younger. That is the only thing that can explain his homophobia.

  • RomanDHudson

    I met Kirk Cameron once. Tell you the story. He came to a church in Pensacola back in 2008. He was the guest speaker where the church paid the guy A LOT of money. Now, he was on stage for about 30 minutes. 15 minutes of it was doing a one man show as his TV character “Mike Seaver” from Growing Pains. Not only was it painful to watch, but so self centered. It was not that he was their to talk about God, but to make money for himself. In fact, ALL OF THIS HATE stems from him being someone who needs the attention he got in the 80’s and not feel like a failed child actor. Cause, if you have seen any of his movies since a Bible hit him in the head, you would know he last his acting abilities. Now, I am a former preachers kid. I came out to my father in 1997. He at first didn’t like the fact that his son was gay, but still never rejected me as his son. And today, supports me openly as a man of God. And last night made me a proud son by telling me he will be at my wedding to my partner Gilbert later this year. Not all Christians are kooks. A lot of them have stepped of the message that God left. Man screwed up Jesus’s message. I challenge Kirk Cameron. Read the Sermon on the Mound Jesus gave. It’s Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Tell me, when did God’s son say his dad wanted gays to die????? Don’t read all the rules MAN wrote. I mean, come on. He said you can sell your daughter and could own slaves? GOD? THE GOD THAT LOVES ALL PEOPLE? He really said you can OWN THEM LIKE PROPERTY? You sir have lost your GOD DAMN MIND!!!

  • TinoTurner

    @RainboWarrioR: Pretty sure he took an ax to it. Almost as unintentionally funny as all the Medea movies

  • Louis

    He speaks of assault yet words like his assault the self esteem and self worth of so many children and so many teenagers nowadays.

    Its hard enough nowadays for our young people people like Kirk and their intolerant words hidden as a justification behind a bible are just as bad and damaging as some bully mocking their sexuality in school is.

    People like Kirk continue too have innocent blood on their hands this man is no Christian hes a sadist.

  • Cam

    I always find it interesting that people like this closet case Cameron claim that other people living their lives is an assault on him. And yet attacking others and trying to force them to live their lives by his rules is ok.

    I guess being in the closet so many years has made him delusional.

  • Stefano

    @Cam : exactly what i was thinking.

  • Stefano

    @Cam : and those closet cases are, most of the time, our worst enemies.

  • Brandon

    Why do we keep bringing him up making him relevant. I never hear about him until a gay news paper/blog site decides to quote him. If we all ignore him he will just fade away for another 20 years.

  • GlitterKidder

    Oh Kirk, would you just come out already (not that we want to claim you as one of us). So over obsessed with the what the gay folks are up to. No one (even straight folks) want to suffer through your hideous disaster of a movie (I would never call it a film). He’s such a queer, and not in a good way!

  • Truth Addict

    Kirk Cameron is the worst kind if pseudo-Christian hypocrite. Where is his outrage over all the performers working on Sunday? Isn’t that a “no-no” for Christians? What about all the people that are divorced and/or remarried being glamourized on the Grammy’s? Be consistent, Kirk. If you are going to be a holier-than-thou a-hole, use all of the Bible and not just the 7 verses you like to bash gays with.

  • topher-sf

    “…thick and dark.” and “…giving it to you NOW. Just the way you want it!” Uh… phrasing.

  • [email protected]

    I cringe when I read, “I’m a gay Christian”. Seriously? You have to pretty much cheery pick/rape the bible to be able to say this with a straight face (so to speak). These individuals are no better to my mind than the so called Muslim moderates who take what is a book of unrelenting malice and spite in reference to anyone who is not Muslim and take portions out of context in an effort to humanise what is clearly the product of a 7th century misogynist rather than a being of infinite intellect and omnipotence.

    Unfortunately Kirk Cameron is a true exemplar of what it means to be a Christian. Like the Muslim fundamentalists he is more honest than the moderates because he doesn’t cherry pick, he takes it warts and all. Unfortunately one also has to be unbearably arrogant to do this, to be able to take what are at core ones subjective feelings, dignify and deify them with the term “faith” and hold this up as a superior means of discerning truth than getting off your lazy gluteus maximii to find out. To believe that ones feelings are inerrant while reality is frequently in error. Not only this, you have to be able to ignore the fact that other people are doing exactly the same thing with different “revelations” and reaching radically different conclusions e.g. Mormons, Jehovahs Witnesses, Muslims… same rubbish, different package.

    I think the nicest term one can apply to such people (as has been done herein) is “douche”. Being a person of faith does not make you a person of superior virtue, it just makes you another shade of a-hole.

    If there was any truth to Camerons religion, he and his friend Ray Comfort could drop to their knees, pray we all be made straight AND IT WOULD HAPPEN! As the purportedly inerrant word says, if any two come together and pray about any one thing it will surely come to pass.

    If you take some of Camerons remarks concerning gay people and society replace “Gay” and “homosexual” with “Jew” you would think you were listening to a Nuremburg speech. The Judaic deity is a murderous little monster who solved his problems with genocide, made man flawed and limited then commanded we be perfect and solved this problem by sacrificing himself, to himself, to appease himself. I would respect Cameron more if he’d spent a month dead and come back to tell the tale and regularly emptied hospital wards with his prayers on the way to this hate filled speech or that. But no, he is just another arrogant little fantacist who does not even have the decency to put up or shut up. I am surprised he can crowbar that huge ego of his through the church doors without butter his ears beforehand.

  • Dawson

    Christians are funny.

    Has anyone ever told them they are the ones obsessed with sex, or gay sex. Why do they care. How has society suffered? We have no intention on marrying str8’s just to make you happy.

    Why are we NOT reversing the argument to Christians deal with their own marriage and the divorce rate? They can’t even keep their own house clean so they look at deflecting the attention. Once they bring up gay sex or marriage lets ask them their opinion on adultery.

    Doesn’t the bible state that all adulterers should put to death (Leviticus 20/10)?

    Hey Kirk isn’t it time to start killing straight people who cheat on their wives or husbands. Just following what the good book says.

    Why are we not telling this to our christian friends when they bring up gay marriage?

  • Polaro

    I love it when Kirk is assaulted. I kind of recall he does too, especially from behind.

  • Cam


    Would you please call him, if you would go out on a 2nd date with him, maybe he would calm down.

  • alansafe

    This is WAY too important to you, Kirk.

  • robho3

    Well he is entitled to his opinion even though no one really cares what he has to say. Praise the lort….halerulur!!!

  • SteveDenver

    He thinks he’s been assaulted? We gays will assault him when we find someone with a dick bigger in diameter than his swollen head, so he can get some backdoor action he can actually feel.

  • hotshot70

    If Kirk was a REAL Christian, he would realize God loves ALL people and does not condemn gays. For Kirk to act this way means he doesn’t deserve to be called a Christian, since he is not at all like Christ. When he finally passes on, he will end up in hell with all the haters.

  • milwguy

    Sounds like a delightful film. I may just have to turn straight, get married, have kids, pop some Jiffy Pop, and watch it. Im sure it will be the life changing film he promises.
