UPDATE – Kirk Cameron Responds To ABC News: “I’m Being Slandered!”
Kirk Cameron has released a statement to ABC News about all the hoopla that has occurred with him being called out because of his intolerant, religious extremist remarks that he made on the Pier’s Morgan show over the weekend when he stated that that homosexuality is “unnatural, detrimental” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”
According to Ms. Cameron he’s being “slandered”
I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people. I should be able to express moral views on social issues, especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square. I believe we need to learn how to debate these things with greater love and respect,” and added, “I’ve been encouraged by the support of many friends (including gay friends, incidentally).”
Please Miss Thang, Marcus Bachmann doesn’t count.
