Dear Church,
Here is one brave guy and example to all of us.  Keep Kirk Cameron in your prayers as he battles for our values in America. And Keep Family Research Council in your prayers as they represent us in Washington and take the hits too.
John Gunden, Pastor
The River's Edge
This month, Kirk Cameron took on his toughest role yet--as a spokesman for traditional values. After the media threw everything but the kitchen sink at the "Growing Pains" star for supporting marriage, he frustrated them even more by refusing to back down. During an interview on the "Today" show, Kirk was the picture of 1 Peter 3:15, "Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you... but do this with gentleness and respect." Even when Ann Curry suggested that his views "might encourage people to... mistreat people," he politely disagreed, saying, "Nobody should mistreat anyone."
 
Did anyone accuse Barack Obama of hate speech when he said marriage is between a man and woman during the campaign? Of course not. Her line of questioning only exposes the media's bias on the subject. These days, if you simply disagree with homosexuals, people like Ann Curry make the leap that you're encouraging abuse! As Kirk said, this whole controversy is a manufactured one. "I have been consistent for 15 years as a Christian. I'm a Bible-believing 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."
 
Later that afternoon, Kirk was back on NBC talking to Hoda Kotb, who asked if he could go back in time, would he answer the question the same way? "When I went on the [Piers Morgan Show] to talk about [the new film Monumental], and instead was asked to give a quick opinion and perspective on homosexuality and gay marriage and abortion and who's going to [be] the next President and the Catholic church paying for contraception, everything gets reduced to a four-second sound bite--and that's not the setting to have a full mind, heart discussion on the issue... I would have liked to have said... I love all people, and I have hatred toward no one. I'm also a man of conviction, and if you press me, I'll give you my perspective on a social issue."
 
At every turn, Kirk Cameron has outclassed his detractors, who seem laser-focused on bringing him down. Ironically, they've probably done more harm to their cause than good by raising the profile of an articulate, courageous Christian, whose thoughtful answers spoke truth in the debate. To join us in thanking Kirk, like his interview on our Facebook page and share the trailer to his new movie Monumental due out on March 27. Also, don't miss Kirk on Thursday 22nd March  edition of "Today's Issues" at 11:00 a.m. (ET). Watch live on FRCRadio.com
