Kirk Cameron's Faith Gets Him in Trouble?

Kirk Cameron's Faith Gets Him in Trouble?

By SOP newswire

Religion and Politics!  Probably the two hottest, most sensationalized and most polarizing issues since the beginning of time. The two are like adding oil and water to any conversation "an immediate reaction occurs that, depending on which side of the line you stand on, produces an energy that is often a combustible mix of anger, bewilderment, c[o]ckiness, and disparagement. The alphabet soup of raw emotion and unrequited tension.

 

Let`s be honest. We all think we`re right. We`re told to love ourselves which means we trust our instincts and if our instincts tell us to judge or to criticize or to endorse or to approve well, then those feelings have got to be right, right?  And when we`re right, we have the right to express our viewpoints whether mainstream, liberal, conservative or downright no holds barred crazy.

 

So what has Kirk Cameron done? He`s definitely experiencing some growing pains of his own right now. Kirk expressed his feelings. Most of us were surprised at his comments but if it`s not what we feel, then why the hoopla? "I can`t remember ever following any of Cameron`s other comments or even pondering to myself on a sunny afternoon, Gee, I wonder what Kirk Cameron thinks about pump gouging, I mean the price of oil and the common driver. And I for sure haven`t for a second wondered what Kirk Cameron would think of my favorite dance pal and his partner when we partied over the weekend."

 

Kirk Cameron took a stance on what he believes to be the true sense of marriage, which in his opinion is between a man and a woman. Kirk`s now infamous quote is that Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don`t think anyone else should either. Lots of folks have said the same thing for years, perhaps for centuries. And over these same years, lots of people have bashed the g[a]y lesbian lifestyle, considered blondes as stupid, thought that women should never vote, or rendered harsh prejudicial viewpoints. And most have learned to accept a new perspective by turning the other cheek and recognizing that tolerance and open-mindedness and charity with oneself and with each other is really what the Bible stories are all about.
