Below are two video clips from Kirk Cameron's interview a week ago at CNN's Piers Morgan show. The first was his thoughts on abortion and the second one was about homosexuality and same sex marriage. Man, our guy from "Growing Pains" really made himself famous for what people judge as "insensitive and homophobic" comments. Watch Kirk's comments:
First of all, America has freedom of speech. Kirk has the right to speak his opinion on things even if there are groups that do not agree with him. It seems that nowadays, almost everyone in America has the right to say anything they want except the Christians. Atheist scientists and professors can just herald their beliefs of the big bang and evolution but the Christian belief of a Creator who created in six days are repressed. I was at Answers in Genesis' All-Asian Conference in Malaysia last year and in one of the breaks where Ken Ham answered questions from attendees, he told us that in the U.S., if an atheist professor senses that a student holds a biblical view of creation, that student will be given a hard time passing his course. Christians are prohibited to pray and speak of God in schools but Muslims are even given their own places of worship. The media pushes down our throats their support of homosexuality and same-sex marriage and no one complains, but Kirk Cameron gives his 3 to 4 minute view on the issue and he is already accused of bigotry. Talk about fairness!
Secondly, what Kirk said was not a product of his own thinking. His was a statement that makes the Bible an authority when it comes to issues of morality. He was just merely telling everyone what the Bible say's about homosexuality. And no. Alan Thicke, Kirk's TV father in Growing Pains, is not right when he commented that the Old Testament is not anymore capable of explaining everything especially in our time. But the Bible tells us that God never changes and so, what he hates in the Old Testament He still hates today. Man is so wrong in thinking that right and wrong evolves. The Ten Commandments is still significant today.
I believe that Kirk should be thanked instead of criticized for his comments. In a world where tolerance to sin is embraced by even the men-pleasing Christians, for someone to declare what the Bible clearly says as sinful in God's sight even if this is not well accepted by the majority is so commendable. Who will say what acts will bring man to Hell if we Christians will always frame every word we say to fit what is "politically correct"? It is not the Christians that dictate what should be considered as right or wrong. God's Word already had them listed. We just merely declare them. And if you're a Christian who does not tell others what God has already said in His Word, then you are NOT being a faithful ambassador of Christ.
To you Kirk, we applaud you for your courage to say the truth!
Dennis Aglosolos, the Director of Living Waters - Asia, will be answering questions.
