I used to write for Christian magazines. I profiled Hollywood celebrities of the Christian faith throughout the years, and every now and then I became friends with actors who turned out to be "not good for the gays." Victoria Jackson was my first famous friend.
I feel so warm and fuzzy inside: 1980s heartthrob Kirk Cameron has declared his love for me! He said that it is his "life's mission to love all people," and that includes you and me! This may come as a surprise to you, especially if you are gay like me.
A video clip available online shows Cameron visiting Barton's personal museum in Texas, and hearing a few of Barton's lies about the early Congress and Thomas Jefferson printing Bibles to spread the word of God to all American families.
No matter the scientific evidence, no matter the countless lives of happy, healthy LGBT people, there's that story, that binary, and that claim. Well, I'd like to take that story back -- to reclaim it for all of us, not just those of us who find love in heterosexual, monogamous life.
I would wholeheartedly encourage Kirk Cameron and his ilk to, as publicly as possible, keep lying, judging, proselytizing, and misrepresenting. I want them to continue flaunting and exposing the sheer ugliness of conservative Christianity. And we, in turn, will continue to respond.
This trifecta of intolerance -- Kirk Cameron, Victoria Jackson, and Chuck Woolery -- have opinions that are as outdated as their careers. They have made brief pop culture comebacks by voicing their ignorant opinions in public forums.
