RightNation.US: Kirk Cameron Mans Up - RightNation.US

Kirk Cameron Mans Up

I've had my share of fun at former Growing Pains star, Kirk Cameron's, expense. I still haven't seen his movie, Fire Proof, yet because he's not believable as a fireman. If there was a fire and he had to rescue me, I think I'd have to revive myself and carry him out.

I've also admitted that there's something I don't like about his earnestness and boyscout persona.

But I have to give him man credit for how he's handled the latest blatant liberal media pit bull attack:

Quote

Even after Cameron explained that the "edited down" quote "certainly didn't reflect my full heart on the matter," Curry still asserted he was encouraging hate: "Do you feel any responsibility saying words like that, that might encourage people to feel that it's okay to treat mistreat gay people?"


When he went on Piers Morgan to promote his new film about American history, Morgan tried to drag him into the weeds like the media always does these days. Cameron stepped up:

Quote

Cameron pushed back and cited Morgan's blatant bias on the issue: "Nobody should mistreat anybody....what I think this reveals is that the interviewer that asked me these questions even used the words with me, "I think your views are destructive" so what that shows me is that all of us who really think deeply about social issues, like gay marriage, and abortion, and homosexuality, have convictions on issues."



Anyone who feels less safe because of anything Kirk Cameron says is a noodle-spined sissy girl. the guy has opinions informed by his faith. He's not advocating violence or mistreatment of any group of people. So if his opinion offends you, you're the wuss, not him.

Here's his best line:

Quote

"I was surprised, frankly, that people were surprised by the things that I said, because I have been consistent for 15 years as a Christian....What I would have thought was more newsworthy is if I had said something that contradicted the Word of God. If I had contradicted my faith."


Christians are constantly berated for not living up to their own principles. Here's a guy doing just that, and it's still not good enough.

I know I have gay, atheist and Mormon friends that read my blog, and I know they can't stand Cameron. I don't make fun him because I want to curry favor with anyone. I say what I say because I believe it and want to say it. Like right now.

I stand with Kirk Cameron on this issue. If people don't want to hear it, they shouldn't ask.

Again, no one should feel unsafe about anything Kirk Cameron says. But now that I'm saying it, fear. Fear for your lives.

:D

I agree. The man stands on his own well known principles, and is not a threat to anyone. Don't like what he believes, don't read, watch or listen. Geeze. Some people. It is true, I guess, conservatives are way more tolerant than libs. We just turn the channel when we don't like something, we don't try to take it off the air.:coffeenpc:

I like Kirk Cameron. I admire his ability to stand tall and stand firm in his beliefs in a business dead set on ruining him for having those beliefs. And he's stuck either way... if he stands by his convictions he's called a hater... if he went against them and agreed with the godless masses he'd be vilified as a hypocrite... let the haters hate him, I'd sure rather be Kirk Cameron on judgement day than Piers Morgan... just playing the odds there, not hating on anyone :) And, IMHO, Fireproof is an awesome movie and well worth watching :)

I'll make it my goal to watch during my week off...which is this week. Have you seen Courageous? Excellent. But stay away from The 5th Quarter. Terrible.

I haven't seen courageous yet... I plan to go get it Friday when I am out and about... if I can find my car keys before then...

I was disappointed in Fireproof like I am a lot of Christians movies. Though it wasn't Kirk that messed it up but the non-actress who played his wife. I sure wish Christian film-makers would start hiring more real actors.

As for what Kirk said, heck yeah! :thumbsup:

Is heck considered a cuss word? :unsure:

I last saw them in the car... driving home for church... a week and a half ago... didn't hang them on the hook and boy, is my hubby not letting me live that one down... checked my purse, pockets... they have to be somewhere, because I got home :) We moved all sorts of stuff around (spring break = basement remodel) so they could be anywhere!

ilja... I thought the acting wasn't all that great... but the idea was good! and I think we can let heck slide... this time...

Yeah, I liked the story. I'm just wanting Christian film makers to up their game (quality-wise) if they want to get their message out past their built-in audience.

I used to live in Albany, Georgia--the town that is home to Sherwood Baptist Church. This is the church that made Fireproof, Courageous, and Facing the Giants (high school football flick--their first big movie). I personally know people that were in those movies and/or involved in the production somehow. I think that they just aren't big enough yet to be able to hire better actors. The messages and stories are great, but they aren't big budget movies.

As to the original post from Chris....I (a Mormon) like what I know of Kirk Cameron. Maybe he has said something that would cause me not to, and I just haven't heard it.

He's got the same theological differences with Mormons that all other denominations have with them, but for some reason some Mormons find him intolerant.

Although I am no fonder of “the media” than the next guy, Cameron (and his supporters) can hardly complain since it’s “the media” that made him a celebrity in the first place. He agreed to appear on a talk show (I.E.: “the media”), has a new movie he wants to market (I.E.: “the media”), and apparently has a message which he wants to be exposed to a larger audience via… dare I say it… “the media”. Nobody forced him into a public interview; and although I deplore ambush tactics, he should pull up his big boy pants and stop bitzing.



I think the larger issue is how “faithful” celebrities (and others) are apparently so lacking in self-awareness and reality connectivity that they can’t even tell when they are being offensive to the public at large. How about this: Turn to your very own parents and tell them that their marriage is somehow destructive to civilization itself. For Heaven’s sake, how the hell do you think they’re going to react? Uh-duh?



I readily admit that other celebrities used ***ahem*** “the media” to make known their own ridiculous opinions but in the context of “who the hell cares?”… so what? This is a tempest in a teakettle.

Updated! World's Shortest Movie Reviews

Captain America 2 Robert Redford, playing himself, gets snuffed. Best movie ever!
God's Not Dead Almost cheese free, an achievement for Christian movies.
Olympus Has Fallen Good action flick, and I really hope the Secret Service found it laughable.
Solomon Kane While it had theological problems, they were rather small compared to what I was expecting. A very underrated movie.
The Hobbit:Desolation of Smaug I'm pretty much out of superlatives, but I thought Sherlock trying to kill Watson was a neat twist.
Despicable Me 2 Keeping delightful slapstick alive. My kids' generation's version of Roadrunner cartoons.
Oblivion Pretty much every sci-fi movie made in the last 40 years but with Nintendo equipment. Worth the $1.50 I spent.
The Life of Pi I'd much rather be stranded on a lifeboat with Richard Parker than Larry H. Parker.
Iron Man 3 Don't be sad, he can make more suits.
Bully I'm sorry, but I've never seen a more clueless bunch of parents and--especially--educators.
Fat Head If you want to regain some intelligence after watching Supersize Me, watch this.
The Hobbit Not a movie. An achievement.
Red Dawn Uh, those North Koreans look pretty well fed. Almost as well fed as the Chinese. Good explosions.
Expendables 2 Someone had the genius idea to film the Random Facts About Chuck Norris. And kudos to Chuck because the film had almost no cursing.
Lincoln Brilliant. Funny. Sad. Daniel Day Lewis should get an Oscar by Constitutional amendment.
2016: Obama's America Great for high and low info voters. Not much new for the high info voter, but some good theoretical discussion. Dinesh is still a punk for agreeing to an interview, then ducking my harder questions.
The Dark Knight Rises: Best treatment of the hero theme ever. Great re-imagining of the Russian Revolution, also.
The Amazing Spiderman: Better than the original. Here's why: Emma Stone way better than Kirsten Dunce. The kid who plays Spidey is way better than Toby McGuire. Closer to the comic from what I understand. No silly Power Rangers mask on villain. I like how they keep him in high school. Martin Sheen gets shot.
Three Stooges: Turning Moe loose on the cast of Jersey Shore? Masterful.
The Avengers: The only word for how awesome this movie is: Dude.
Winter's Bone: Jennifer Lawrence deserves an Oscar for just reading this script. Let's just say don't stray too far out of Branson if you're ever up in the Ozarks.
The Hunger Games: The Running Man for pre-teen girls. But with more stabbing.
Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon: A jackhammer of an action movie. Wildly xceeded my low expectations.
Super 8: Thank you Misters Spielberg and Abrams. The former may be a pinko commie lib, but he knows what he's doing. The latter may be a jerk around artist when he's got years to tell a story. But give him just a couple of hours, and he's dead on. Great, great old school 80s era Spielberg flick.
True Grit: I didn't want to like it out of respect for The Duke, but dang it if those Cohen brothers aren't masterful.
X-Men First Class: Yet another home run from Marvel. It's funny, the first time I saw Magneto's helmet, I thought "That would look great on Kevin Bacon."
The Hangover 2: Um. Yeah. Sick. My sainted wife picked this one. I'm sure the prospect of seeing Bradley Cooper's Magnum PI caliber chest had nothing to do with it.Thor: On par with Iron Man, which means top-notch. Jeremy Shockey is great as Thor. What? That's not Jeremy Shockey? Well, he should sue then.
Battle: LASo, that's what happened on the ground on Independence Day. Seriously, very good movie.
Tangled: A Burkean mix of aesthetics and respect for tradition. In other words, it was pretty cool.
Voyage of the Dawn Treader: Spectacular. Some visuals that are so beautiful they almost hurt to look at.
Tron: Legacy: I don't know why they had to mess with perfection.
The A-Team: I wasn't a believer until stuff blew up. Then I was, like, "yeah!"Waiting for Superman: I haven't been this disappointed since I found out that To Kill a Mockingbird wasn't a documentary.
The Book of Eli: Had the potential for one of the greatest endings in movie history but pissed it away with one scene.
She's Out of My League: Is there a RomCom factory somewhere and can we blow it up in the A-Team sequal?
Waking Sleeping Beauty: I liked the Pixar Story much better. It's basically the same movie about movies.
Clash of the Titans: Yelling "Release the Kraken!" when you go into the men's room is still funny. But it has been funny since the 80's, so...
Date Night: Not your average RomCom. I think this is the movie Alfred Hitchcock was trying to make when he slapped North by Northwest together.
Iron Man 2: Keep them coming. Please.
