Feb. 23, 2013 KCAC peacefully protested Kirk Cameron and his religion-rooted bigotry against the LGBT community and women’s reproductive rights. Cameron led a seminar at the First Baptist Church of Raytown titled “Love Worth Fighting For.” KCAC and the Kansas Equality Coalition advocated for “Equal Love Worth Fighting For.”

Among the public statements that Cameron has made about gays and reproductive rights are the following:
1) In a CNN interview with Piers Morgan, Cameron stated, “Homosexuality is unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to foundations of civilization.” See video HERE.
2) In the same interview, Cameron stated that abortion is “wrong under any circumstances” and that “someone who is ultimately willing to murder a child even to fix another tragic and devastating situation like rape or incest … is not taking the moral high road. I think that we are compounding the problem by also murdering a little child.” See video HERE.
3) Cameron’s “Living Waters” ministry website states that homosexuality is a self-destructive lifestyle equal to that of pedophilia, adultery, alcoholism or drug addiction.
“Homosexuals argue that they did not make a conscious decision to be that way, so it must be natural. They are born that way — just as all of us are born with a sin nature and sinful desires (Ephesians 2:1– ). Tell them that it is natural for them, and for all of us, to be tempted to do things that God says are wrong. In the same way, pedophiles and adulterers (alcoholics, drug addicts, etc.) don’t make a conscious decision to “choose” that self-destructive lifestyle, they simply give in to their sinful desires.However, although sin is natural for unbelievers, that doesn’t mean God wants them to remain that way. God can set them free from their sinful nature (Romans 7:23–8:2), give them new desires (Ephesians 4:22–24), and help them withstand temptations (1 Corinthians 10:13). See 1 Corinthians 6:9– 1 footnote.” See quote on website HERE.
