Cameron stands against same sex marriage

Kirk Cameron goes on CNN and explains why he's against gay marriage

Cameron stands against same sex marriage
03 March 2012

When it comes to anything connected to LGBT,  Kirk Cameron is displeased.

Last night the former child actor was interviewed by CNN's Piers Morgan. When the conversation turned to social issues, Cameron described gay sexuality as a burden.

'I think that it's unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.'

Predictably his opinion on same sex marriage is rather low.

'Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don't think anyone else should either. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't.'

Known mostly for his work in the 1980s sitcom Growing Pains, the actor has spent his adult years supporting conservative Christian causes. He spoke at the most recent Conservative Political Action Conference, noting his worries about America and its future  (and to promote his new documentary).

 'As I look around I get this sinking feeling that we’re off track, that there’s something sick in the soul of our country, Cameron said as reported by Politico. 'I examine the fruit that’s hanging on the tree of America and I can see that it’s rotting. And that concerns me deeply.'

The actor/evangelist is an outspoken proponent of what's known as 'intelligent design.' This line of thought stands in stark contrast with the scientific theory of evolution. Intelligent design advocates maintain there are clear signals the natural world is made by a purposeful plan.
