Video: Kirk Cameron exacerbates situation, says gays 'headed down road that's going to be detrimental to themselves and potentially others'

by Jeremy Hooper

After admitting he has friendly ears in longtime anti-LGBT activists Tim Wildmon and Tony Perkins, '80s teen star Kirk Cameron again fails to take even an iota of responsibility for saying that gays are "unnatural" and "detrimental to society in a number of ways" and instead tries to flip the script behind some bizarre "bigotry" thought exercise. Oh, he then makes some more comments about homosexuality being detrimental. Enjoy:

This highlights one of the main reasons why I never use words like "bigot" or "homophobe." Anti-LGBT social conservatives have made a favorite past time out of taking those kinds of words and using them as convenient outs (e.g. "I'm not a homophobe, I'm not scared of gays"). They love to argue against a label because it helps with their most cherished pastime: Never accepting even a shred of fault for something they themselves said or did to hurt others.

Weak.
