Piers Morgan Praises Kirk Cameron's Defense of Marriage and Morality as "Brave"


Piers Morgan has been asking every social conservative who comes on his CNN program about their views on gay marriage and homosexuality.

Kirk Cameron, the star of Growing Pains, does an excellent job of reminding Piers that he's imposing his own value judgement when he asks his leading questions.

In fact, when asked about the interview later, Piers praised Kirk for being "honest to what he believed" and "brave" for sticking to his beliefs.

Here's one of their exchanges in the interview:

Morgan: "Some people would say that telling kids that being gay is a sin or getting [gay] married is a sin, that in itself is incredibly destructive and damaging in a country where seven states have legalized it..."

Cameron's views are his own and he defends them admirably. Watch the full exchange for yourself:

Cameron defended his comments in a statement to ABC Tuesday:
