I’m sure some TV show already went through the: I’m offended, and I’m offended at your being offended, and I take offense at your offense, etc.
Sometimes silence is golden, and you just need to let things go. Hence the point with Kirk Cameron and his interview with Piers Morgan. http://tv.yahoo.com/news/glaad-fires-back-growing-pains-star-kirk-cameron-221503692.html
Kirk is ASKED his OPINION about GAY MARRIAGE. He (gasp) GAVE it. His opinion, if you didn’t just skip over and read it, is that he feels being gay is unnatural and destructive. He goes on to say that marriage is between one man and one woman until death do you part. Then it explains that he’s an Evangelical Christian (because apparently THAT’S the reason for his belief. Maybe it is, but there was something icky about stating it.). Sigh.
Look, you don’t have to like his opinion. I don’t agree with it. However, I believe freedom of speech is protected by the Constitution. That means he gets to say what he thinks and feels WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT.
His opinion is not going to be changed. Making a fuss just makes people on the fence cringe due to what they perceive as “politically correct rhetoric” and “bullying”. I’d rather he was honest about his feelings than say one thing and vote the other.
Besides when it’s all said and done, we will all have to come to the realization that marriage is a CONTRACT between two people. Thus, it’s business. And churches don’t control business transactions. That would be the legal branch of your government. Don’t believe me? Did your church marry you without a license from the state?
Let the poor man be. Really.
