Cameron and Morgan (4 Eva!)

Let's face it - Kirk Cameron, for all his recent bigoted remarks about gay people, should be an object of pity. If history has taught us anything, and by history I mean random members of the Republican party, Cameron's future is probably going to feature being busted in the mens toilets with a gaggle of male prostitutes or caught rustling about in the bushes of some seedy park.

I'm not saying that he's a closet case, I'm just merely implying that he's possibly wardrobe luggage.

On the bright side, at least it's not just gays he's got it out for:

'Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve.'

Did you hear that non-Christians? Marriage was defined between Adam and Eve ("Not Steve!" yells Kirk helpfully), so your marriage is a sham. You probably should sit down with the kids and either part ways due to your unholy joining, or prepare to walk in the path of Adam and Eve, which I believe involves a generous dose of incest and fratricide.

What got me was Piers Morgan's defense of Cameron saying that he was 'brave'. Yes, it's always brave to call a group of people 'unnatural' and 'destructive to the foundations of civilization', when that group is not only a minority, but doesn't even share the same protection or access to the law in most parts of the world. A group that has a higher than average suicide rate because of the intolerance that they face. Yes, when I think of the word brave I don't think of someone risking their life for another, or standing up to injustice, I think of someone mouthing off hate speech because sadly, they know they can get away with it because they're protected by enough people that hold those same intolerant views.

Next Week: Piers Morgan interviews the Grand Wizard of the Klu Klux Klan, pins a medal on him for bravery and throws a parade ("But not a gay one!" pleads Kirk).
