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 10 women who wouldn’t be silenced in 2018
It's been 26 years since the so-called "Year of the Woman," when a record number of women were elected to Congress in 1992. Four senators and 24 representatives were sent to Capitol Hill, following contentious Supreme Court hearings for then-nominee Clarence Thomas, who was accused by Anita Hill of sexual harassment.
On several levels, the themes of 1992 have made repeat, and amplified, appearances this year. The #MeToo movement became fully realized with women reclaiming and reframing their stories, as President Donald Trump, himself accused many times of sexual predator behavior settled further into the White House. Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh, also accused of sexual assault, to the Supreme Court, and while Kavanaugh would go on to attain a seat on the highest court in the land, serial sexual predator and former beloved comedian Bill Cosby was sent to prison for the drugging and rape of Andrea Constand, only one of dozens of women who have spoken out against Cosby with credible accusations of assault.
US ‘model soldier’ gets 25 years in prison for Islamic State support
A U.S. Army sergeant described by former colleagues as a one-time “model soldier” was sentenced to 25 years in prison at a federal court in Hawaii on Tuesday after pleading guilty to providing material support to the Islamic State militant group, a local news outlet reported.
Ikaika Erik Kang, 35, agreed to a plea deal in August on four counts of breaking antiterrorism laws in which he accepted a proposed 25-year sentence.
Judge Susan Oki Mollway accepted the terms of the plea deal at Tuesday morning’s hearing, Hawaii’s KHON2 news channel reported. Kang told the court he knew what he did was wrong, KHON2 reported.
