Kirk Cameron Rejects Request to Meet with Bullied LGBT Teens

Kirk Cameron's spokesman Mark Craig replied to a request from the Youth Caucus at Garden State Equality asking Cameron to sit down with them after his visit to Ocean Grove, NJ where he'll discuss the Bible's stance against gay marriage.

CameronWrote Craig to GSE's Corey Bernstein:

I would normally just write a simple reply, "Thanks for your invitation, however Kirk's schedule will not permit," but because you have taken some time to share some of your feelings, Kirk asked me to personally thank you on his behalf for your kind invitation and is very sorry he can not attend because of the schedule that weekend. I also want to thank you for taking the time to write and share your heart in your letter.

For this reason, I want to share this thought with you, from someone who sees and works with Kirk almost everyday of the year - I promise you his goal is not one of trying to hurt people in any way, in fact it is just the opposite. He has a concern for their well being - not only now, but eternally. He goes out to share a positive message through events like this weekend and I assure you he will only be presenting a positive/ inspiring message.

I would like to suggest if you really are interested in Kirk's thoughts on the matter, you can listen online to the interviews and comments Kirk has shared where he was given ample time to communicate his heart and thoughts. I hope you can attend the event and see for yourself.


Bullied Teens Seek Kirk Cameron's Ear

KirkCameronTeenNJFormer Growing Pains heartthrob Kirk Cameron owes his fame and fortune to teenagers. Now that he's working for the hateful National Organization for Marriage, will the 41-year old stay true to the demographic by meeting with teenaged victims of anti-LGBT victims?

The conservative Christian Post passes on word that members from the Youth Caucus at Garden State Equality are asking for Cameron to sit down with them after his visit to Ocean Grove, NJ to praise the bible's alleged prohibition on same-sex marriage.

"In a kind, respectful and constructive way, we'd like to talk to you about the pain your words about being LGBT have personally caused me and other LGBT youth," wrote Corey Bernstein, 17, in a letter to Cameron. "Words casting negative judgments about LGBT people not only perpetuate prejudice in our wider society, but also hurt LGBT youth in particular. Some of your public comments about being LGBT have devastated us LGBT youth. We yearn to grow up in a world that provides us dignity and safety. That is our simple, most heartfelt dream."

Cameron's team won't say whether or not he'll meet with the teens, but it's sounding like a no. Meanwhile, the Youth Caucus will join their allies from Ocean Grove United in a silent protest outside Cameron's speech tomorrow.

GLAAD Responds To Kirk Cameron's NOM Video

Kirk2012

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.

Piers Morgan Isn't Having Kirk Cameron's Victim 'Moaning': 'I'll Let Others Decide If He's a Bigot'

Pmorgan

Following Kirk Cameron's mini media blitz this morning during which he claimed to be victimized by Piers Morgan over anti-gay remarks he made during his CNN interview, Morgan blasted back at Cameron on Twitter.

"Kirk Cameron is moaning everywhere today that I stitched him up by releasing a 4-second 'soundbite' re his comments on gay marriage...These are the 4 seconds: homosexuality is 'unnatural..detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization'...Mr Cameron 'stands by the comments', despite his whining. So I'll let others decide if he was stitched up...or just a bigot...Re #KirkCameron, I respect his religious beliefs - just don't respect his use of bigoted, inflammatory language re homosexuality. End.
