More than 500 movie theaters across the country will show actor Kirk Cameron’s new movie “Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure,” Tuesday, March 27.
The documentary traces the steps of our founding fathers and the beliefs that led them to start a new country.
But during his publicity tour for the film earlier this month, Cameron made news for speaking out on gay marriage and homosexuality. CNN host Piers Morgan sparked the controversy when he asked Cameron if he thought homosexuality is a sin.
“I think it’s unnatural. I think it’s detrimental and ultimately destructive to many of the foundations of our civilization,” Cameron responded during the March 2 show.
Cameron also told Morgan in response to further questions that he believes God has defined marriage.
The actor’s comments sparked outrage from Hollywood celebrities like Rosie O’Donnell and further questions from other media outlets.
CBN News recently talked with Cameron about the backlash, noting the irony of being attacked for his beliefs while promoting a movie about liberty and religious freedom.
“It’s perfectly making the point of ‘Monumental,'” Cameron said, “which is that societies will eventually come to the place where political correctness is so important that if you don’t bend your beliefs to the moral standards of the politically correct, those in charge, you will be dragged out to the public square and stoned, so to speak, for holding your beliefs. Or you can hold them as long as you’re silent.”
