By this point, it’s not a shock that Kirk Cameron is not a fan of queer people.
However, a new video featuring the former “Growing Pains” star talking about how to minister to gay people is especially stomach-turning.
The clip, which intentionally edits — sometimes out of context — the worst, weirdest and most ridiculous “highlights” of Cameron’s appearance on Way Of The Master, was put together by Danny Haloossim and Robert Hill, a duo who call themselves “Deeper Understanding,” and who regularly create captivating and often hilarious videos using found footage.
Speaking about the clip of Kirk Cameron, which went viral this week, Haloossim told The Huffington Post in an email:
“The video was made for the blog “Everything is Terrible,” which is a comedy site that features funny edits of found footage. We thought it would get a few laughs, and that would be the end of it. We weren’t expecting it to be shared around the Internet as much as it has. But, it gives me great pleasure to show the world what an arrogant douchebag Kirk Cameron is.
I’ve noticed a lot of comments made that our edit is portraying Kirk purposely in a negative light. Yes, we did cherry-pick some of the more outrageous quotes and some things are presented out of context, but if you watch the entire, unedited video, the message of intolerance and hate is exactly the same.
One thing we were on the fence about including were the bits with the transgender woman. We didn’t want to present her as someone to laugh at in the video, so I hope people recognize that she is a hero for standing up to their bullying (because that’s what it really is — “Why don’t you just dress as a man and all your problems will be over” says Kirk’s partner in crime, Ray Comfort).”
Kirk Cameron is currently taking a little time away from of his busy anti-queer agenda to try and save Christmas from the pagans, proving there truly is no rest for the wicked.
Update: A rep for Kirk Cameron told TMZ:
“A rep for Cameron tells us the statement is blatantly ‘taken out of context.’ He says Cameron’s latest film, ‘Saving Christmas’ is doing very well … and claims angry Atheists cut up the vid and posted it in an attempt ‘to defame him.’
The rep adds Kirk loves all people.”
