Kirk Cameron says loving your neighbor doesn’t mean giving up your rights and tolerating evil

Important Takeaways:

  • Actor Kirk Cameron Urges Christians Not To ‘Turn The Other Cheek’ When It Comes To Tolerating ‘Tyranny’
  • While appearing on the “Timcast IRL” podcast with Tim Pool last week, Cameron discussed his fight against “religious viewpoint discrimination” in public libraries across the country. During their conversation, Pool suggested that Christians may be partly to blame for America’s decline because they have become too tolerant and accepting.
  • “Christians in this country are good people who keep saying OK to these people, being tolerant, allowing them to live the way they want to live,” Pool said. “But what happens is they push more into the institutions, they introduce dangerous, bad ideas, they start targeting kids, and now we’re here where we are today.”
  • Cameron was quick to agree, saying that the biblical commands to “turn the other cheek” and “love your neighbor” were never meant to apply to tolerating tyranny.
  • “I see so many who are just tolerating evil and that’s not loving your neighbor,” lamented Cameron, 53. “At the end of the day, the two great Commandments of Christianity are to love God with all of your heart, mind, soul and strength, and the second is like it, to love your neighbor as yourself.”
  • “If you ‘tolerate’ the kinds of things that bring misery to your neighbors and ultimately strip them of their liberties, you’re not loving them,” he added.
