Kirk Cameron Defends Gay Marriage Views, Weighs in on New Movie "Monumental"
Actor Kirk Cameron's newest project is a lot different than his role on the hit 80s family comedy “Growing Pains.” In his new movie “Monumental,” which hits theaters on March 27, the actor and producer has set out to find the real meaning of America. Today, he stopped by the curvy couch to discuss his newest project with Fox and Friends.
Cameron said that looked at this movie from the perspective of being a dad and not an actor because as the father of six, he's concerned about the world his kids are growing up in. He started this project by going to England to retrace the escape route of the Pilgrims and dig into the history behind the actual story.
In Plymouth, Massachusetts, he found “a set of core values, ideas and principles” that can be used to help America. The film looks at the Pilgrims, what they meant for our county, and how their faith and courage drove them to be heroes.
Separately, he discussed controversial comments he made about gay marriage earlier this month in which he called it “unnatural” in an appearance on CNN’s 'Piers Morgan Tonight.' He told Fox and Friends that he hasn't changed his views following the uproar at his comments, but pointed out that his views have been consistent over the years and doesn’t think they should surprise anyone.
“To take some answers, reduce an important, personal and sensitive issue to a four-second sound bite, and toss it into a community to start a political firestorm and really upset people … I think it’s disingenuous, and it was an interview that was supposed to be about this movie.”
