"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."
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?
