Kirk Cameron wants to win the War on Christmas, and give those naughty atheists the spanking they deserve.
In his new movie, “Saving Christmas,” Cameron plans to “put Christ back into Christmas” and push back against those who wish to “snuff out” the holiday’s “holy root.”
Cameron’s new movie, scheduled to be released in November, is supposed to tackle some of the most controversial and disputed claims surrounding the celebration of Christmas, claims that Cameron says have had a profound impact on the way believers and nonbelievers alike view the holiday season.
Cameron spoke to The Blaze about his new film:
“It’s obvious that there is a deliberate attempt to snuff out the holy root that has produced all this wonderful Christmas-time fruit. I think it’s about time someone spoke out and made a movie about this.”
“[It is] offensive to 90 percent of people in our country who want to see nativity scenes and who know the birth of the Christ child is the fundamental root of Christianity, which is the ideology that built this country,” Cameron said.
Someone needs to tell Cameron that atheists and others can enjoy the Christmas fruit (the warm wishes, the time with family and friends, the exchange of gifts), without partaking of the poisonous root that is Christianity.
When asked how atheists will respond to the film, Cameron said they won’t be too happy with its storyline:
“I assume they’re going to get frustrated to see some of their best arguments deflated by this movie, because we take on some of the most commonly parroted myths about the origins of Christmas.”
Given Cameron’s track record, it is highly doubtful he will manage to deflate any argument. After all, Cameron is a Young Earth Creationist who denies evolution, and a homophobic bigot who argues that homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental, and destructive to society.
Cameron is probably best known for his role as Mike Seaver on the 1980s television series “Growing Pains.” Since becoming a born-again Christian at the age of 17, Cameron has become well-known for promoting his controversial, conservative Christian beliefs.
Samuel Goldwyn Films has set Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas for a November 14 limited theatrical release.
