Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

NOM should look into getting a new spokesperson – Kirk Cameron might be up for the gig. The child actor-turned-evangelist had some harsh words for LGBT Americans on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight.”

The Advocate reports that on the segment, Cameron said of LGBT people: "I think that it's unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

The actor also indicated he would be less than supportive should he have a gay child, saying: "There are all sorts of issues we need to wrestle through in our life…just because you feel one way doesn't mean we should act on everything we feel."
