Kirk Cameron, former teen star of Growing Pains, a sitcom that ran from 1985 to 1992, became a Christian while on the show. In 2002, he co-founded a ministry called The Way of the Master (the on-the-street witnessing is instructional), and in 2008, he played the leading man in the Christian movie Fireproof, a surprise hit. Promoting his new documentary scheduled for release in theaters later this month, Cameron appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight last Friday. The host asked for his comments on homosexuality, and Cameron told the truth: “I think that it’s … unnatural. I think that it’s … detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”Naturally, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) didn’t like it. GLAAD’s Herndon Graddick said, “In this interview, Kirk Cameron sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character. Cameron is out of step with a growing majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.”

Graddick is wrong. Christians shouldn’t accept homosexual behavior, which the Bible clearly condemns as sin. From Romans 1:

“For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”

Not only does the apostle Paul call homosexuality unnatural, he calls it shameful, and those who commit the acts bear punishment for their rebellion. But Graddick is partially right about one thing; Christians should love people attracted to members of the same sex … enough to tell them what God has to say about their behavior.

We’re at the point in our increasingly declining culture where telling the truth about homosexuality—that it is unnatural, detrimental, and ultimately destructive—generates the media-supported ire of a small minority of the population that seeks to normalize deviancy. Do groups like GLAAD really expect Christians to deny their faith and accept homosexual behavior as normal and good when the God we worship condemns it?

Homosexuals have the aid and comfort of the mainstream media and Hollywood, which promote their cause and portray Christians as narrow-minded creeps. They call us bigots and homophobic in a perverted and futile attempt to shame those who hold fast to a faith that offers the only means of freedom from the slavery of sin.

As Cameron and other Christians continue to speak the truth, homosexuals who seek validation of their lifestyle inevitably will go on the attack. Providentially, this country allows us to state what we believe and publish articles like this one. Freedom of speech and religion are precious things, and we must speak out boldly and often, especially as we face opposition.

I will say, boldly and often, Kirk Cameron is right.

Amen to that! Homosexuality goes against God's will, therefore against Christianity. In this politically correct world, I will NEVER be politically correct when it goes against God's word.

Me too. Just because God's word doesn't gel with "political -correctness" doesn't change the fact that it's 100% correct.

Homosexuality was condemned by God a lot earlier than in Romans.....Try reading Leviticus......

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"

The above Scripture is from the English Standard Version

Point being that it wasn't first condemned in the book of Romans.....

Mark 16: 16..."16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned."

Acts 2: 38...."38And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."

Acts 22: 16...."16And now why do you wait? Rise and be baptized and wash away your sins, calling on his name."

I Peter 3: 21...."21Baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ,"
