Quote# 48149

[Regarding the new movie Fireproof, which he stars in and which is also a witnessing tool! CitizenLink is a Focus on the Family website.]

When Fireproof came around, I thought, "Wow, this would be a great opportunity to be part of a project where the Lord is getting a message out to people about marriage — a sacred institution, an institution that is falling apart. It's been watered down. It's been redefined. It's been maligned and attacked. This is a great time to try to turn the statistics around by holding up God's picture of marriage, and say, "This is something so much bigger, so much better, and so much more awesome, than what most people have ever been told, and have ever experienced."

And just think girls. If you get raped outside the city limits you get married too!

I was wondering how long it'd be until this dumb fuck would appear on here.

Can't wait to see the even worst ratings for his new shitty movie.

"than what most people have ever been told, and have ever experienced"

The topic is still marriage, something most people have been told about and experienced

From the same interview:

Kirk: In Hollywood, marriages rarely survive. I think my wife, Chelsea, and I have set a record being married 17 years and both of us being actors.

Two words. Paul Newman.

The film looks crap as well. Weepy shite.

God's marriage is nice and all but same-sex couples need to have the same rights.

So, uh, we're going to support those guys too.

Of course marriage has been defined in different ways in different cultures over several millennia. What the hell did you expect?

Not only do I support gay marriage, I also support polygamy. If three consenting adults wish to get married to each other, why should we stop them?

(I'm not trying to be funny here. Just in case anyone doesn't realise I'm serious.)

Uh, Kirk, hate to break this to you buddy but you're not "in Hollywood" anymore. At best you're a D-lister, if not on the E or F list. Hollywood was a long, long, time ago in both you and your wife's careers.

This coming from a man who got divorced a dozen times....

Hey, maybe you're right. Maybe this film will finally get through to all those so-called Christians in the Bible belt who cheat on their spouses and get divorces left and right, while somehow claiming that same-sex marriage would damage their own marriages. You know -- specks, planks, and all that.

As a same-sex-married woman, I get antsy at the words "redefine" and "marriage" together. They mean us. And of course, when they're done with us, you cohabitors and divorcees are next.

I think the movie's going to be confusing. After all, firefighters, by definition, are sexy...and Kirk Cameron, by definition, is *so* not!

And Kirk, you are relevent in what way? Fuck, I didn't even know you were still alive. How long has it been since you did something worth watching? 20 years?

No, marriage has been redefined by Christians at least twice in Western culture that I know of.

Asssssssshole.

God's picture of marriage, as exemplified by two of his senior staff:

King David and King Solomon
Led merry, merry lives,
With many, many concubines
And many, many wives.
But when old age grew o'er them
With many, many qualms -
King Solomon wrote the Proverbs,
And King David wrote the Psalms!

Kid, your movies suck.

"Marriage is so awesome, which is why it's more important than ever to rub it in the faces of those who can't partake in it."

Chyyeaaaah.

I don't think so.

I dunno, I think Kirk Cameron's a decent looking guy. I'd have sex with him: lulz would ensue.

Marriage is nothing sacred. It is a legal contract between two people to protect their interests for the period that they are living together. That period can be terminated by death or divorce.

It also provides a protection for the relationship against outside interference from within the state, but cannot protect in the event that the state is invaded or collapses, as happened in Iraq. It is therefore fairly limited.

So why all this religious hoo-haha?

Marriage existed long before religion (Christian) was ever heard about. It existed because the couple wanted it to from time immemorial. Religion has poked its nose in because it is a way of controlling and manipulating people, something religion just has to do. It is therefor a ploy to attach the word sacred to something that prexists the concept that it was a sacrament.

And for these reason there is no nee to throw one's hand in the air in holy horror at the thought of two women, or two men, making such a contract. In fact, until the churches campaign to ban divorce, it is nothing less than hypocrisy.

Kirk Cameron... was he the older brother on Blossom?

Personally I don't ever want to get married. But I'm not stopping others from doing it.

Freshkills landfill is "something so much bigger, so much better, and so much more awesome, than what most people have ever been told, and have ever experienced," too, but whenever Kirk speaks, I DO think of landfills... and sewage treatment plants.

So will this movie be as BIG as all the other Kirk Cameron movies/witnessing tools?

After all, who still doesn't remember the ... the uhhh...

What was Cameron's last movie? I only one I remember is the one about a debating team with Roy Scheider where Kirk talked about his blue balls because he couldn't get it on with this other actress. (Premarital sex. Must have been before Kirk was "saved")

I saw Kirk promote this film the other day on Dr. Phil's show. I like Dr. Phil for his common sense (though he's quite the blowhard) but he's been kowtowing to fundies like Cameron and T.D. Jakes.

So...your message is "marriage is AWESOME, and it is not for the gays!" Wonderful, profound, nauseating.
