Remember When You Stoned Kirk Cameron?
Metaphorically of course:
Kirk Cameron there, still claiming he was the victim of censorship even though no one actually stopped him from speaking out about his belief that being gay is “unnatural” and “detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” All anyone actually pointed out was that his claims are bigoted and in no way grounded in reality.
The latter half of the video is taken up by anti-gay commentator Pat Robertson congratulating Cameron and also making factual errors. He says gays can’t procreate, it’s “biologically impossible,” and so gay rights constitutes a “war on procreation.”
This, of course, ignores surrogacy and the fact that gay people constitute, by conservative estimates, about one in ten of the population — so I think procreation’s safe.
Readers will also note Robertson sneaks in a quick attack on abortion, and then puts all these things down to Satan’s influence, the last resort when someone cannot make evidence-based claims to back up their moral views.
However I did like the synergy between Kirk Cameron and Pat Robertson.
It was almost like looking through time to where Cameron might be in a few decades if the latest evangelical film he’s flogging bombs.
