I would like to see his "evidence".

Former '80’s heartthrob and “Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron is feeling the heat after he voiced his views on gay marriage during an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan.

"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," says Cameron. "So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't."
Morgan then asked the born-again Christian if he thought homosexuality was a sin. To that, Cameron replied, "I think that it's unnatural. I think that it's -- it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

Hi Friends;
  I really liked Kirk in the show he did as a teenager.  Over the years, he has found himself a lifestyle and outlook that seems to work well for him.  For him.  I do support his right to it, even his right to his opinion and freedom of speech.  My question regarding his claims that homosexuality is "unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive...." is to ask - says who?
  I will agree to a point.  For someone oriented heterosexual, homosexual activites may be unnatural.  But, to someone who is homosexual, it's the very definition of natural. 
  How is homosexuality detrimental to the foundation of civilization?  The atomic bomb is destructive to the foundation of civilization.  The loving and nurturing relationship shared between two men cannot be seen as anything but positive.  Further, it is a positive and productive union, resulting in all the same general positives as a good heterosexual marriage.  The only difference, the homosexual relationship in of itself does not produce children. 
  So, tell me Kirk, and anyone else...  how again is that destructive?

Hello Randy
The only evidence of destructiveness that I see here is that of religion's destructiveness towards humanity, empathy and intelligence. Mr Cameron can't see further than the end of his prejudices, I'm afraid.

Love & best wishes

Hi Sammy;
I've heard Kirk Cameron speak. He's a decent guy, but very rigid in his beliefs. In a way, it's good to have beliefs to call core and call back upon, but in another he is failing in some of the core parts of being Christian, and that is to show love and compassion - even for people who believe differently.
So, I guess you are right... he can't see further than his prejudices.

Hello say marriage was created int eh garden of Eden is a far stretch even for rigid fundamentalists. Not enough information is give...for example, if Adam and Eve were married, had two MALE children, then when they were sent out to multiply....who did they multiply with...the only female mentioned at that time is Eve. Strange definition of family values if you ask me....Many coughing hugs, Scottie

Oh, my friend;
I sure hope that cold leaves you very soon.
I never understood the story myself. It really makes no sense, when one starts to unravel it a bit.
The interesting thing is, if these folks are going to claim that marriage is between a man and woman because God says so... and also said to multiply, ie have children, then that must make marriages without children invalid? No, there has to be a better reason for these folks or their reasons are nothing more than prejudice.
