Kirk Cameron has come out with a pseudo-historical documentary which premiered last night and is asking that the film, Monumental, become a movement. He is also selling material by Marshall Foster on the Monument website. We are compelled to ask Cameron where he stands, especially in light of his recent anti-gay remarks, on the question of the death penalty for homosexuals based on sexual orientation.
My friend Warren Throckmorton has kindly provided me with these important insights and the association with Foster that warrant questioning. By associating with Foster in this fashion and in his quest for a movement Cameron has some questions to answer.
“A Rev. Kayser interviews Marshall Foster, the now famous guest and co-producer of Kirk Cameron’s movie Monumental, about the biblical foundations of liberty, something that sounds a lot like Cameron’s movie. Cameron is offering material from Foster for sale on the Monumental website.”
In September, 2011 Marshall Foster, who is clearly now associated with Cameron, was the keynote speaker at the Providential History Festival hosted by ‘Ron Paul’s death penalty for gays pastor, ‘Phillip Kayser, who was touted by Ron Paul as an endorser in the Iowa GOP primary. However when it appeared that Kayser, the Omaha, NE pastor brought seriously controversial baggage with his endorsement, Ron Paul removed all traces of him from his website.
The undesirable endorser of the GOP presidential candidate clearly believes in the death penalty for gays, adulterers, disobedient children, idolators, etc. He vehemently asserts that U.S. civil law should reflect the Old Testament book of Leviticus.
Kirk Cameron says he wants to start a movement; Throckmorton and I want to know where Kirk Cameron wants his movement to go.
Kayser, and apparently Cameron’s associate in the project, Marshall Foster, believe that civil law should be taken from the Bible. Does Foster and by association Cameron’s also believe that gays deserve the death penalty?
If Foster and (by association) Cameron do not agree that Gays ought to suffer the death penalty, yet believe that Bible ought to back civil law, surely they ought to come out and explicitly abstract themselves from the stance!
Kirk Cameron said at the end of his movie that he wants “Monumental” to be a movement. With Mr. Foster involved, both Throckmorton and I think it is fair to ask Cameron where he stands on the issue.
Cameron says forget about Government helping with healthcare turn to G-d instead!
“Today, most people are looking to the government to take care of them. Help me with my education. Help me buy a house, and get a job, give me my healthcare, give me my benefits and my government handouts, and take care of me and my family,” Cameron recently shared with The Christian Post.
“What people are actually doing is looking to the government to be their savior […] and when you do that, you give all of the power to the savior that you are depending on,” he added.”
