Kirk Cameron: God 'Is' the Platform of the United States - VIDEO


Kirk Cameron whined about the Democratic Party platform 'God' kerfuffle to a wingnut crowd that included Rick Santorum, Harry Jackson, Jim Garlow, and Rick Scarborough on a nationwide simulcast from the Family Research Council broadcast over the weekend called "iPledge Sunday: A Call to Faith, Family, and Freedom" calling on Christians to make their voices heard on election day.

"Our forefathers would be rolling over in our graves to hear what we are discussing - the sanctity of life - really? The definition of marriage - really? Religious freedom - really? They would be appalled."

  2. ....um..starting when? post-slavery? post-segregation? when the Nixon admin decided the best thing for the county was a healthcare system that gave less care, helped fewer people, but saved more money for the insurance companies?

    just curious as to which specific point in American History it became, uh, "Christian"....

  3. It seemed pretty empty to me. So, posting on sites like this gives it more gravity than it deserves. Just ignore the morons. Oh, and I love this site, btw!!

  4. @HOMO GENIUS: no he is not Canadian. The father on Growing Pains was (Alan Thicke).

    @Andrew: stop being the story police. This guy is mobilizing with his conservative christian friends against us. We need to know what these fools are up to since they are trying to take away our rights. Know thy enemy.

  5. @MIKE: see above. You think they are harmless? I hope you are still singing that tune when you wake up November 7th and god forbid it's President Romney. Or are you actually looking forward to that?

  6. The US will never have human rights as good as the rest of the western world until they stand up against organized religion.
    Religions still control way too much over here - it doesn't matter who is in power religions still have vast fortunes invested in the stock markets that they threaten to pull out if politicians don't do as they say.

    It's time to TAX the incomes of religions. We have religions buying private jets, building private hospitals, building private airports and donating millions to political campaigns. If they can spend all that money they can afford to pay taxes !

  8. Is he talking about the same forefathers that intentionally left the word "god" out of the Constitution?

  9. He don't know much about his founding fathers. No surprise there, sigh... Canadians know more about America than Americans do.

  10. Evidently, Cameron makes his living by appearing in religious themed and produced films. No wonder he has a vested interest in promoting this sort of hate mongering propaganda that panders to the religious extremists who are his audience. Then, when he's called out on his views, he blames the "liberal media."

  12. @Okeydokey: If I wake up on Nov 7th and discover that Romney has been elected, I will be VERY sad. However, it will mean that the American people have chosen him and we will have to live with it.

  14. @Okey dokey or whatever your silly name is: If you think Kirk Cameron is a serious challenge to progressive ideas, you are a fool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. @ANDREW: did you actually read the article before spouting off? While Kirk maybe a smalltime player...the group who hosted this "forum" is the Family Research Council: a group with lots of $$ to put into this election to defeat equality rights. The coalition of groups he was speaking to are a who's who of right wing players who want to defeat us. So it is a story we need to know about whether you like it or not. Fool.

  16. Are non believers in America not American?

    Is being an American citizen completely revolved around a strong (militant?) faith in a God? And if so which God? And moreover, how come one religions God is more worthy than the Gods of the hundreds of other practiced religions? Would love some logical clarification on this.

  17. America is getting almost creepy with all this religion mumbo jumbo.

  18. Andrew,
    I've noticed every story regarding the exposing our anti gay hate mongers, you scream up and down "why are we giving them attention?"

    Let's break it down for you, since you can't seem to grasp a clear cut why these people need to be exposed:

    * It's vital, if not critical for our livelihood to be made aware of the actions and speech of our haters. Especially those with a prominent microphone placed in front of them to preach their hate. To burry our heads in the sand and pretend they don't exist is wreckless, dangerous and frankly ignorant. I'd rather be well informed of the tactics of my enemy, not showering myself with the compliments of my allies (who I already trust)

    * secondly. I for one am SO sick of the "bigger fish to fry" argument in regards to challenging any and all homophobes. It's not a pie with a limited piece of slices. We're capable of challenging many fronts and being engaged in many battles. I'd argue, it's a necessity to be highlighting stories of conservative homophobes of all walks, whether they be prominent or not, it's important to be aware of their message and informed, so we can answer back with facts. Not just pretend these homophobes don't exist, or strictly focus all our efforts in one cause.

  19. Andrew would rathe us not ever call out the homophobic ilk. He always gets worked up when a gay site talks about anti gay forces. If I didn't know any better....
    Andrew, the only posts here that make you cream your pants in joy is ones revolving aroun Obama. I happen to be an Obama supporter, but as a gay man, even before Obama, I support gay rights, gay issues, gay movement and our concerns. That takes priority and is why I visit this site. Get used to it.

  20. Andrew, take your meds already.

    Your emotional, hissy fit, never ending rants on here always trying to lecture not only the posters on towleroad but the gay community is starting to become repulsive. Get over yourself, you are not qualified to analyze anyone with yor psycho babble. Every one of your posts is nothing but a tangent trying to 'school' people on here. No one likes a know-it-all who doesn't know much.

    Posted by: Art Smith | Sep 11, 2012 5:21:01 AM

  21. @ Andrew
    I'm going to agree with others. I've noticed your posts here lately and you're really starting to become as intolerable as Rick. Word of advice: no one likes to be told how to think or react. Instead of demanding people on here and this site change, you're more than welcome to see your way out. I can assure you, it seems you won't be missed. But keep up your hoiler than thou attitude of telling posters on here how to react, what to think, and what towleroa can post. It will surely marginalize you in the same boat as Jason and Rick.

    So keep it up.

  22. People who preach about God the loudest always have the most to hide in their closets.

  24. @Klein, Trojan et al: you and people like you don't seem to realize that just because someone doesn't agree with you 100% of the time doesn't mean they are your enemy. I have no doubt that I have done more in my life to advance gay and progressive causes than either of you. I think that some of you are so fearful that we are going to lose the fight for equality for all Americans, that you shout down anyone who disagrees with your version of the fight. Mabye you need to mature and grow up. The tide of history is on the side of equality. Don't dispair and try to silence anyone who disagrees with you on some of the issues and details.

  25. @ USC Trojan Fan at 5:14 - Klein at 5:17 - Art Smith at 5:21 - Scott Johansen at 5:24 - R J at 5:26 ALL have made anti-Andrew comments. I wonder who this lone individual is? He clearly cannot read the English language to have misconstrewed my comments so completely. Oh well f*ck em. I will just keep posting my progressive but not necessarilly knee jerk P C views.
