All Aboard The Morality Express

SOLVED!

[BlindGossip] There is an area in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park where you can take the kiddies for a train ride. A certain actor used to enjoy taking men for another kind of ride in the same area. He would cruise the park, pick up a guy, and then hook up with them in his car. The really ironic thing here is that the actor is so religious that when he was a teen heartthrob (a couple of decades ago) he used to insist that any dialogue that was even the slightest bit sexual or profane be removed from his lines because they violated his sense of decency. He’s all grown up now, but we’re sure his wife really appreciates what a moral man she married.

It’s Kirk Cameron! Source: BlindGossip.com

Well, it certainly has been an interesting week for Kirk Cameron! The evangelical Christian actor made some shocking remarks on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight about homosexuality.

The 41-year-old was asked by Morgan if he thinks homosexuality is a sin.

“I think that it’s unnatural,” Cameron said. “I think that it’s detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.” Cameron also spoke out against gay marriage.

He was later praised by Piers for  being “brave” and for being “honest to what he believed.” It’s too bad Kirk’s honesty didn’t include telling Piers about his penchant for cruising for men in Griffith Park.

We are not saying that Kirk Cameron is gay. We are just saying that this blind is about him. It’s up to you to decide what he was doing in the car with those men in Griffith Park. And it will be up to Piers Morgan or another interviewer to directly ask Kirk Cameron if he is gay or if he has ever engaged in sexual acts with other men in Griffith Park… or anywhere else.

From The Chicago Tribune:

GLAAD rips actor Kirk Cameron for remarks on homosexuality

LOS ANGELES, March 4 (TheWrap.com) – Former “Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron‘s negative comments on homosexuality and gay marriage, made Friday on CNN’s “Pier Morgan Tonight,” have drawn a rapid response from GLAAD.

Cameron said he thought homosexuality was “unnatural.”

“I think that it’s detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization,” the actor told Morgan.

Cameron, who is an evangelical Christian, also spoke out against gay marriage.

“Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don’t think anyone else should either,” Cameron said. “So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don’t.”

The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation issued a statement Saturday in response to the actor’s appearance on the CNN program.

“In this interview, Kirk Cameron sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character,” Herndon Graddick, senior director of programs at GLAAD, wrote “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 also addressed Cameron’s remarks regarding gay marriage.

“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.”

In brief remarks to TMZ Saturday night, Morgan called Cameron “brave” to voice his beliefs. Morgan said he feels Cameron “was honest to what he believed” even if most people find his views to be “antiquated.”

    only kirk cameron comes to mind but I don’ t want to believe it since mike seaver was my childhood crush!!!!.

  2. Ihave4Boys says

    Oh man! This makes me think of Kirk Cameron with the way it’s worded. I really, really hope I’m wrong on this one.

    • Ihave4Boys says

      For clarification I should say Kirk Cameron was a teen heartthrob a couple decades ago, was and still is really religious, used to insist that any dialogue that was even the slightest bit sexual or profane be removed from his lines because they violated his sense of decency (after he was saved, anyway)…

      Crap I am convincing myself even more this is him and I really don’t want it to be.

  3. Beatrixie says

    Kirk Cameron–Evangelical Christian guy, was a heartthrob in the 80s when he was on the show Growing Pains (“all grown up now”).

  4. deeznutz says

    Hi Ace, long-time lurker first-time commenter.

    Is it Tom Cruise? Thought it might be due to the “cruise” hint. : )

  5. Finlands Best says

    Kirk Cameron seems to fit the bill, especially with the “all grown up” pointing to “Growing Pains”. I know he’s said before that he was really zealous after his conversion and made a point to have anything questionable taken out. The producers needed to keep him happy, but their relationships were very contentious. The part about the wife appreciating the moral man could point to Fireproof, where his character learns to be a better, moral husband.

  6. nooneuno says

    Gotta be Kirk Cameron, he’s the only one I know that has touted his religion and had suggestive dialogue removed.

  7. Cazkins says

    cruise mentioned twice plus religion maybe scientology? tom cruise?

    hi to the forum on my first guess/post

  8. QubbuQ says

    Kirk Cameron? Wow, that’d be something… what with his religious school ‘Way of The Master’ and it’s anti-gay preachings.

  9. katdot says

    kirk cameron. he was notorious for getting his lines changed on growing pains and the playboy playmate who played his girlfriend fired.

  10. VesperATOM says

    Hey, first time posting. Love the site!

    I have no idea if he’s gay, but when thinking of an uber-religious former teen heartthrob that would have that kind of pull on his show, Kirk Cameron is the only person I can think of…

  11. ScruffyPinkConverse says

    Kirk Cameron? I remember reading somewhere that he didn’t want any profanity or sexual references in his dialogue.

    • Bromance1979 says

      This was just a huge guess, but I guess everyone else thought the same. That’s sad for him and his wife :(

  12. iammeme says

    Gotta be Kirk C… I used to just write the people caught doing this kind of thing off as hypocrites. Now it just makes me sad that some people can’t deal with who they are and hide behind self righteousness. You would think someone fighting their desires so hard would realize that they were “born this way” and not make it their business to stifle others who are OK with themselves.

    • deeznutz says

      Well, you know what they say-most of Hollywood’s men are heavily bearded homosexuals on the D/L…..

      • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings says

        But I wonder if Kirk is bi, not gay. The blind doesn’t define his preference outside of liking men. He could like both.

      • iammeme says

        Being a bearded is not great either but WAY less damaging than using religion to justify why being gay is wrong.

  13. LittleMouse says

    Kirk Cameron, married to Chelsea Noble and became a born-again Christian in his late teens.

  14. Katmandu says

    Jonathan Taylor Thomas?

    (I can’t help but imagine him and his new ‘friend’ taking a ride on the train, LOL)

  15. xphile101 says

    I think everyone is going to guess Kirk Cameron, but I don’t know how religious he was during Growing Pains (his best friends’ name was Boner, for crying out loud), so I’m saying Donny Osmond.

    • Wabisabi says

      W-e-l-l, “Boner” came up — no pun intended — when they first met as kindergarteners, if you’ll recall, and it was merely innocent little Mike shortening Richard Stabone’s last name. While it does kind of have racy undertones, it wasn’t meant to be such, I believe.

      All that said, I STILL think it’s Kirk.

    • WindyLAX says

      He also had the actress who was playing his girlfriend (and I want to say the youngest Seaver’s nanny?) at the time fired because she had posed in Playboy.

  16. justguessing8 says

    Kirk Cameron, Growing Pains…

    I don’t like making this guess at all but it’s the first that comes to mind. ‘teen heartthrob’ who disputed his dialogue, ‘all grown up’ = Growing Pains and he’s married.
