At the debut of his film Monumental, Cameron promised that "much more is coming" and he hinted at a strategy to educate and mobilize Christians to save the country. It's now a bit clearer what he meant.
In the trailer for his new documentary Monumental, Kirk Cameron has an 'a-ha!' moment: "So hold on. The United States Congress was commissioning and printing Bibles to be given to all the people because they knew that that's what would... make America flourish and thrive!"
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.
It's beyond outrageous that people like Rick Santorum can even remotely defend the venom spewed by Kirk Cameron, and then twist the uproar into something that ultimately couches them as the victims. But it's not surprising, as it's how they've operated all along.
In a world where it is challenging for most people to create a healthy, sustainable relationship, the last thing a child needs is the judgment and shame from their parents if they realize they are gay.
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This trifecta of intolerance -- Kirk Cameron, Victoria Jackson, and Chuck Woolery -- have opinions that are as outdated as their careers.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.
