Actor and activist Kirk Cameron has never hidden his political or religious views, but has recently been in the press for a high-profile interview he gave to CNN’s Piers Morgan in advance of the release of his documentary “Monumental.” He said he opposes abortion “under any circumstances” and that homosexuality was “unnatural.”
On Gay Marriage:Hollywood has reacted in anger. GLADD condemned Cameron. His former TV family members Alan Thicke and Tracy Gold tweeted their disagreement. “I am a strong supporter of the #LGBTCommunity, and I believe in equal rights for all.#NOH8 #LOVE” said Gold. Many other Hollywood figures also took to Twitter to vent their disapproval.
The former “Growing Pains” star has always been outspoken about his conservative Christianity. In recent years, he has starred in the “Left Behind” series and “Fireproof,” both movies made for the conservative Christian market. He also has advocated for Intelligent Design and acted as an Evangelist. “Monumental” will release March 27.
