Breaking news! Noted homophobe Kirk Cameron has admitted that married people pose a far bigger threat to marriage than gays (most of whom still can't get married) or any "redefining" of marriage.


Here are some of his comments to

When people get too focused on redefining marriage, you're distracted from the bigger problem - fornicators and adulterers... If the people sitting in the pews are fornicators and adulterers, the church will destroy marriages much more quickly than those outside the church. When God's people mock marriage, God doesn't take that lightly...I think the greatest threat to marriage is not other people's definition of marriage. The church isn't taking God's definition of marriage seriously. It's not other people sabotaging marriage that's the problem.

Cameron remains a judgmental idealist, but at least he's pointing his scorn at the segment of the population whose behavior actually defines what marriage is (and how weak of an institution it ultimately is under our current guidelines), as opposed to the supposed boogeymen who still aren't seen as legal equals throughout most of the U.S. He isn't using some what-if scenarios about the threats to marriage as he wants it to be; he's using the actual threats.

But lest you think that this signals the turning over of a new leaf for Cameron, he recently narrated a propagandic infomercial for the anti-gay Alliance Defense Fund. It included a segment in which two Georgia Tech students were persecuted for speaking out against marriage equality, sued, and won as a result of ADF handling their case. So even though Cameron isn't speaking out against gays at this very moment, he's more than happy to endorse others who are doing so.
