Kirk Cameron says he ‘loves all people’; stands by his comments

Kirk Cameron is shocked that people were “surprised” by his views on gay marriage, this according to the Growing Pains actor. In an interview with the Today show, Cameron made it known that he loves “all people”, but he stands by his controversial comments on gay marriage.

“I was surprised, frankly, that people were surprised by the things that I’ve said,” Cameron told host Ann Curry. “I have been consistent for 15 years as a Christian. I’m a Bible-believing Christian. What I would have thought was more newsworthy is if I had said something that contradicted the word of God, if I had contradicted my faith.”

He continued:

Nobody should mistreat anybody. We all have our convictions formed by different things and mine are informed by my faith. They’re formed by the word of God, and I found that to be an anchor for me, a compass, and a guide for me. When people start bullying one another and calling each other names for those different convictions, then I think you get into problems.”
