Actor-turned-activist Kirk Cameron says that Democrats didn’t go far enough by adding “God” to the party’s platform, insisting that God should be the entire platform.
After realizing they had left out the words “God” and “Jerusalem,” Democrats scrambled to modify their platform at the last minute during their convention last week.
“One of our political parties is wondering right now if the name of God should be in the political platform,” Cameron said at a simulcast church service hosted by the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins on Sunday. “According to our forefathers, God IS the platform!”
“When I think of how far our country has drifted, our forefathers would be rolling over in their graves to hear what we are discussing,” he added. “The sanctity of life? Really? The definition of a marriage? Really? Religious freedom? Really?”
Cameron found himself in hot water earlier this year after he told CNN’s Piers Morgan that homosexuality was “unnatural” and “destructive to so many foundations of civilization.”
Late last week, the anti-LGBT actor blamed CNN for not censoring that portion of the interview.
“If Piers Morgan were truly concerned about the homosexual community, concerned with people being hurt, he could have eliminated that section, like he did many other parts of our conversation,” Cameron told Naples News.

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’
On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.
As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.
Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:
1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate
Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.
The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.
In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
