GLAAD Responds To Kirk Cameron’s NOM Video


Calling Kirk Cameron's anti-gay politics "outdated and irrelevant," GLAAD president Herndon Graddick admonished the actor for teaming up with the National Organization for Marriage and claiming that children can only thrive — "incubate" was the word he used — when raised by heterosexual parents.

"Kirk Cameron and the anti-gay activists at NOM are making a claim that Americans know to be false," said Graddick. "This rhetoric won't work anymore. Communities across this country love and cherish their LGBT neighbors, friends and family members. This includes people in families headed by LGBT people. Their implication that LGBT couples can’t create loving and stable homes is not only outdated and irrelevant; it’s designed specifically to hurt those families.”

And, as we learned today, almost all the major American medical associations agree with GLAAD's assessment.
