Last night, while I was fake-sleeping next to Kim Jong, I came across THIS NUGGET on my iPhone. The gist of the article, entitled, “Kirk Cameron: Calling Gays ‘Destructive And Unnatural’ Is Love Speech,” goes a little something like this:
Cameron says when you persecute gays you speak the truth in love.
‘The truth is always love speech, it’s not hate speech. The truth, communicated with compassion, with the desire to see people in a right relationship with God, helped, and healed, and whole, is the most genuine form of love speech you can give to anyone.’”
It took all I had not to nudge my kid from is own fake-sleep and say, “Can you believe this asshole!” But, rather than exposing my sweet boy to the real boogie men of the world, I took my rage to the internet.
Thankfully, my dear friends who live in my computer were just as disgusted by the has-been’s tired and bigoted remarks.
Here’s the thing. There are so many people who spew this brand of hateful rhetoric and, “Oh so controversial look at me! Look at me!” bullshit. But, most of the time, I don’t believe that they even believe the things they’re saying. But, sadly, dollar signs can turn a lot of people into dicks. But, Kirk? I think he truly believes the things he says. I’d put money on the fact that he’s just as vile as he comes off.
The article goes on to say, “For the record, Cameron calls homosexuality a “behavior,” and says “just because you feel one way doesn’t mean we should act on everything we feel.
‘Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve,” Cameron also told Piers Morgan. “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.'”
Oh, golly gee Kirk, you’re so god damn insightful.
And, by insightful, I mean you’re a loose cannon, a bigoted asshole, and a danger to our society. People, particularly children and young adults, kill themselves all the time when they hear ignorant people like you shouting from the rooftops that they are somehow abnormal. When, in reality people like you are the only abnormal ones.
When kids hear someone tell them that they should be ashamed of who they are, and that they shouldn’t be who they are, they believe it. They’re too young to know you’re really just a weak, little man who despises himself. When a gay teenager or child commits suicide, it’s because of people like YOU.
Yeah, I said it.
Mike Seaver is killing gay people.
It’s true. Their blood is on hands like his.
And he has six kids of his own. Six kids who are exposed to this kind of hate speech, daily. Six kids who will likely go to school and bully other kids, because of what they’re learning at home – that it’s acceptable to do so.
The thought of one of them being gay makes my stomach turn. To live in a house where one cannot be themselves. To come home each day to a place which should be a safe zone, where they should be loved and supportive for all of who they are. There’d be none of that because the only thing they’d feel is shame, fear, and self-loathing.
Kirk, I don’t give a shit what your bible says. I don’t care what your god says.You have the right to believe what you choose to believe. But, you do not have the right to project your hateful, antiquated, despicable bullshit on the rest of society, simply because you’re a washed up actor trying to stay relevant.
You are irrelevant.
You are toxic.
You are a fear-monger.
You are a bully.
You are a fake Christian.
You cannot fool me with your sweet, little, curly head of hair, and shit-bag grin. You’re the boogie man in disguise hiding behind some distorted version of religion.
You are hate.
The only unnatural thing in this entire equation are those people who care about another’s sexual preference.
I mean, for Christ’s sake, you had a friend named Boner for years.
Fortunately, you are the minority, the outcast, and the sinner. Even still, every time I hear people like you open their disgusting mouths my head explodes. Then, I put something like this out there and the goodness and decency that’s returned allows my soul to smile again. It proves to me that people like Mike Seaver are a dying breed and I thank God for that.
So, with all due respect, please shut the fuck up Mr. Cameron. Because, you sir, are an ass.
P.S. You’ve been replaced with Alex P. Keaton, even if he was a little conservative for my taste.
