Dean Cain Slams "Intolerant' Gays For Being Offended At FRC Hate Group Event

Actor Dean Cain Slams “Intolerant’ Gays For Being Offended For His Speaking At FRC Hate Group Event – VIDEO

Friday at the anti-gay Family Research Council run Values Voter Summit, “actor”  Dean Cain blasted gays and Twitter users who objected to the fact that he, who constantly says he is pro-LGBT rights would be appearing before the arch-conservative hate group.

Asked the moderator of Cain’s panel: “Have you taken pressure on Twitter on Instagram — and I know the answer to this question but I want to hear you say it anyway.”

Replied Cain:

“Yesssss. Certainly. I take that sort of heat and abuse every single day but it doesn’t bother me in the least…it doesn’t make me mad, it just shows people’s intolerance towards listening to another opinion. Just the fact that I’m here, just the fact that I’m here people were blowing me up all day long with the most ridiculous things that you could ever here. Talk about intolerance. It’s ridiculous. I take heat. It doesn’t bother me, I welcome it, because I sleep well at night. I know I’m doing something that matches my convictions and my heart and I’ll happily defend the things that I say and I stand for.”

Pressure on Twitter. Oh, my. The pain of it all.

Feel free to exercise your Constitutional First Amendment rights. And then let folks exercise theirs. And feel free to complain about them as they exercise their rights. But, if you think you don’t pay a price for the association with the Family Research Council, you’re wrong.

 Don’t pretend you’re an ally; that’s our decision to make, and you aren’t.

Clark Kent Is For Marriage Equality, So Everyone Else Should Be Too

dean-cain-image

If you’re somehow inexplicably on the fence about allowing marriage equality and looking for another reason to see why same sex marriage should already be allowed then maybe the legendary Clark Kent, aka SUPERMAN can show you the error of your ways. Okay maybe it isn’t exactly Superman but it is at least the ultra smooth and sexy man that played Superman in the televised series of Lois & Clark, Dean Cain, that feels this shouldn’t even be an issue for our society anymore. Here’s more:

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a same-sex marriage supporter!

Actor Dean Cain, who is best known for playing the “Man of Steel” on “Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman,” spoke out in defense of marriage equality during a HuffPost Live appearance.

“If anybody wants to get married, go ahead,” the 46-year-old actor, who will next be seen in the VH1 series “Hit The Floor,” said. On a more serious note, he added, “I have a lot of gay friends … I can’t understand why it’s an issue. For me, it’s a non-issue.”

Cain, who played a gay character opposite Zach Braff and Andrew Keegan in 2000’s “The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy,” is a registered Republican whoreportedly backed Rick Perry and eventually Mitt Romney in the 2012 U.S. presidential election.

Cain’s words had us soaring along with his famous character’s red cape until that last sentence. it makes his words and statement questionable. I can’t help but wonder if he felt so much support for gay rights and same sex marriage that he could vote for the candidate(s) that were more than willing to take away our rights as citizens.

Someone who embodied such a pragmatic and diplomatic hero like Superman for many years forgot that lesson that Kal-El’s parents wanted him to learn here on earth, that each person deserves to be treated equally and have the same rights. Maybe I’m just having a hard time separating the man from the fictional character. Still, it’s great that Cain feels that we deserve to have the same rights as everyone else. Though hopefully in the future, he’ll support politicians that embody that ideal as well.
