Recently the Youth Caucus at Garden State Equality in Ocean Grove, N.J. asked to meet with loving anti-gay “christian”
closet case and has been newly-hired NOM staffer Kirk Cameron:
Wrote 17-year-old Corey Bernstein co-chair of the Youth Caucus at Garden State Equality in a letter to Cameron and his manager.
“In a kind, respectful and constructive way, we’d like to talk to you about the pain your words about being LGBT have personally caused me and other LGBT youth.
Mr. Cameron, words casting negative judgments about LGBT people not only perpetuate prejudice in our wider society, but also hurt LGBT youth in particular. Some of your public comments about being LGBT have devastated us LGBT youth. We yearn to grow up in a world that provides us dignity and safety. That is our simple, most heartfelt dream.”
A spokesperson for Cameron told The Christian Post on Wednesday that he was not previously aware of the group’s lunch request. But now on Friday (surprise, surprise) Cameron has rejected the request and his manager had the gall to tell the group to watch his interviews online. Interviews in which Cameron says being LGBT is “unnatural,” “detrimental” and “destructive to our civilization”
From Cameron’s manager:
“I promise you his goal is not one of trying to hurt people in any way, in fact it is just the opposite. He has a concern for their well being – not only now, but eternally. He goes out to share a positive message through events like this weekend and I assure you he will only be presenting a positive/ inspiring message. I would like to suggest if you really are interested in Kirk’s thoughts on the matter, you can listen online to the interviews and comments Kirk has shared where he was given ample time to communicate his heart and thoughts. I hope you can attend the event and see for yourself.”
Garden State Equality responded quickly“Kirk Cameron has asked us to look into his heart. Now we know the sentiment there: ‘Let Them Eat Hate.’”
