Kirk Cameron - Kirk Cameron: Gay Marriage Is Destructive To Civilization06 March 2012
When asked if he would tell his children that gay marriage is a sin, the actor-turned evangelist answered "I would tell my children what I believe myself and, er. I believe that marriage was defined by God, a long time ago, marriage is almost as old as dirt and was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve, one man, one woman, for life." He then added "I would never attempt to redefine marriage and I don't think anyone else should either." Seven states in the Usa have legalized same sex marriage and campaigning continues to make it a federal issue, so that it would be legal across the country.Glaad (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) have condemned Cameron's conservative views, saying that he "sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character." Their spokesman Herndon Graddick added "Cameron is out of step with a growing majority of Americans . Americans are seeing that marriage is about committed couples who want to make a lifelong promise to take care of and be responsible for each other and that gay and lesbian couples need equal security and legal protections. That's not 'redefining' anything."
