Kirk Cameron says Christians should clean up their own house before condemning gay marriage

Growing Pains actor turned born-again Christian Kirk Cameron says combating fornication and adultery should be bigger priorities for Christians than fighting gay marriage

Kirk Cameron says Christians should clean up their own house before condemning gay marriage

Former Growing Pains star and born-again Christian Kirk Cameron has suggested that the church has its priorities wrong over same-sex marriage and should instead focus its energy on raising the moral standards of heterosexual relationships.

Cameron said the issue of sex before and outside of marriage should be where Christians should be concentrating, ahead of a trip to Alabama where he plans to hold a series of marriage seminars.

‘When people get too focused on redefining marriage, you’re distracted from the bigger problem – fornicators and adulterers,’ Cameron told AL.com.

‘If the people sitting in the pews are fornicators and adulterers, the church will destroy marriages much more quickly than those outside the church. When God’s people mock marriage, God doesn’t take that lightly.’

Cameron as recently as January described same-sex marriage as ‘an all out assault on the traditional family,’ but seems to have moderated those views in the months since then.

‘I think the greatest threat to marriage is not other people’s definition of marriage,’ Cameron told AL.com.

‘The church isn’t taking God’s definition of marriage seriously. It’s not other people sabotaging marriage that’s the problem.’
