Actor and producer Kirk Cameron, who is also an outspoken Christian, has recently taken aim at some public leaders, calling them "nefarious forces" that intend to erase God and the nuclear family from American society. However, Cameron insisted that such "forces" can be overcome if Christian parents reclaim control over their families and their children's education.
On Thursday, Cameron appeared on One America News Network to discuss his faith-based library tour, which is sponsored by Brave Books and established in part to combat the drag queen story hours that have become all too common at libraries across the country. During the interview, OANN's Alison Steinberg asked Cameron about some of the "backlash" he has faced since taking his Christian ministry on tour to local libraries.
Cameron responded that "nefarious forces" in local government institutions and in activist groups always "target ... children" as a means of undermining God and the nuclear family. "That's why God gave children to parents and not to governments and woke institutions that are staffed and manned by those who want to undermine the faith and values that made America great, that advance the good," he explained.
Cameron added that "the collapse of the family and the killing of God in America" are not the ultimate goal of these "nefarious forces." They are just a means to their ultimate end, which is to destabilize "our moral and societal structures" and then replace and reorganize those structures "with something different, like progressive, socialist, communist ideas."
Though Cameron believes that many "progressive leaders" are motivated to destroy society, he still offered a message of hope to like-minded Christians. "Let's get off the defense. Stop complaining ... and start creating the culture that you want for your kids," he chastised parents.
"You read them the stories," Cameron continued. "You tell them who the heroes and who the villains are and pray with them and show them how to get back to abundant life."
Cameron also noted that his library tour has been so popular with parents and kids that at one recent event, the crowd in the overflow area began singing worship songs together while waiting in line. "They were doing church in the public library, and it brought me to tears of gratitude," said Cameron, who briefly joined the group in prayer.
Cameron, 52, spoke with OANN from the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte, North Carolina, where Cameron made yet another library appearance. Franklin Graham — the son of the late American evangelist Billy Graham and the current president and CEO of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association — claimed in a statement that he was "proud" to partner with Cameron in evangelizing America's youth. "Libraries used to be safe places for families, but many of them now seem to be agenda-driven places that welcome drag queens to hold story hours for children," the statement said. "This is just plain wrong, and I’m so glad Kirk Cameron has decided to tell a different story — a story with Biblical values.
"It’s a shame that some libraries and activists have tried to stop him," the statement continued. "They want him to shut up and sit down, but Kirk isn’t afraid to take a stand for what’s right, and I couldn’t be more proud of him."
"Culture is coming for our kids," Cameron agreed, "but we can fight it together."
Nearly 1,000 people were expected to attend Cameron's event at the Billy Graham Library. However, the actual number of attendees has not yet been reported.
