As noted at the official website of GLAAD, on Saturday, March 3, 2012, the group do not like the comments of Kirk Cameron, who appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight at CNN on Friday night, and was asked about his views on homosexuality and gay marriage.

As reported earlier, Cameron, 41, a former ‘Growing Pains‘ star and now an evangelical Christian, told Morgan on his show on Friday that “homosexuality is unnatural and ultimately destructive” and that he is against gay marriage.

Herndon Graddick, Senior Director of Programs at GLAAD, issued a statement, slamming the former actor for his anti-gay comment, noting that their group will make sure that the entertainment industry knows his views on homosexuality and gay marriage.

Cameron is out of step with a growing majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation.” Graddick was quoted at GLAAD.org.

“With an increasing number of states recognizing marriage equality, Americans are seeing that marriage is about committed couples who want to make a lifelong promise to take care of and be responsible for each other and that gay and lesbian couples need equal security and legal protections. That’s not “redefining” anything.” Graddick added.
