Actor Kirk Cameron has already issued a statement in response to his controversial Piers Morgan interview. While attacks from fellow entertainers and advocacy groups have continued, Cameron has maintained his stance on homosexuality and has reiterated his love for his fellow man. As he makes media rounds to promote his new documentary, “Monumental,” the actor is still fielding questions about the controversy.
This morning, on FOX News’ “FOX & Friends,” Cameron was open and honest about the drama that developed following CNN appearance. During a dialogue with the show’s hosts, he discussed his feelings about Piers Morgan’s questioning (it was an interview on “Piers Morgan Tonight” that originally spawned the controversy) and he defended his comments. Here’s what Cameron had to say:
“What disheartens me…is that when you’re sitting across the table from someone who knows what your perspective is on issues — and I’ve been very consistent, I don’t think anything I said surprised anybody as a Bible-believing Chrisitan — but to then take some answers, reduce an important and personal and sensitive issue to a 4-second soundbite and toss it into a community to start a political firestorm and really upset people that you’re saying you’re looking to protect, I think it’s disingenuous.”
