Kirk Cameron is one of the few show biz types to go public with their social conservatism, and he follows through with a new video he taped for the National Organization for Marriage opposing same-sex marriage.
NOM said on its website, “Made famous as a child actor, today Kirk Cameron is one of America’s most important marriage champions. Kirk stands fearlessly in defense of God’s truth about marriage despite frequent and merciless harassment by the mainstream media for his outspoken Biblical views.”
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation’s Herndon Graddick said in response, “Kirk Cameron and the anti-gay activists at NOM are making a claim that Americans know to be false. This rhetoric won’t work anymore. Communities across this country love and cherish their LGBT neighbors, friends and family members. This includes people in families headed by LGBT people. Their implication that LGBT couples can’t create loving and stable homes is not only outdated and irrelevant; it’s designed specifically to hurt those families.”
