Actor Kirk Cameron thinks the gays are intolerant of his intolerance

He should be able to say whatever hateful things he wants, unchallenged, or this is not America.

From the NY Daily News:

“I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community,” he told ABC News in an emailed statement Tuesday. “That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people.

“I should be able to express moral views on social issues, especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.”

Cameron added that he has been encouraged by the support of gay friends.

First off, if you want to talk about 2,000 year old traditions that were supposedly rooted in the Bible, let’s talk slavery.  Should we have been tolerant of that, Kirk?

Second, speaking honestly doesn’t preclude you from being a hateful bigot.

As for your right to free speech, what about our right to free speech? You have every right in America to be a bigot, and a loud spoken one at that. No one is taking that right away from you. But we have the right to call you on your bigotry.

As for your supposed gay friends who are supporting you in this, name one.
