Kirk Cameron, best known for the 80s sitcom Growing Pains, is expressing outrage against the televised marriage ceremonies of 33 gay and straight couples during the Grammy Awards on Sunday (26 January).
‘How did you like the Grammys all out assault on the traditional family?’ Cameron asked his 1.4 million Facebook followers. ‘The lines were drawn thick and dark. Now more than ever, we must work together to create the world we want for our children.’
It was in March 2012, Cameron said on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight that he believes homosexuality is ‘unnatural, ‘detrimental,’ and ‘ultimately destructive.’
Cameron, a high-profile conservative Christian, was slammed by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and other groups as well as some of his former Growing Pains co-stars for his anti-gay remarks.
Later that year, he told a students at Liberty University is a private, Christian university located in Lynchburg, Virginia, that ‘blasphemy laws are still alive and well in America.’ He said conservative Christians should not be ‘wussing out’ when expressing their views about homosexuality.
In his latest Facebook post, Cameron mixes his slam of the Grammy marriages with a plug for his latest film Mercy Rule which he hopes will ‘strengthen families.’
In a follow-up post, Cameron writes that the film ‘is about a family who learns the important lessons of mercy, patience, sacrifice, legacy, and trusting God.’
