Kirk Cameron Calls on Christians to Resist Tyranny Instead of Turning the Other Cheek

The former “Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron, one of the few conservative Christian stars in Hollywood, states that the Biblical command to “turn the other cheek” does not mean Christians must “tolerate tyranny.”

Cameron Sounds Off

On the “Timcast IRL” podcast with Tim Pool, Cameron discussed his fight against “religious viewpoint discrimination” in public libraries. Pool suggested that Christians may be partially responsible for America’s decline due to being too tolerant and accepting.

Cameron quickly agreed, stating that biblical commands to “turn the other cheek” and “love your neighbor” were not intended to imply tolerating tyranny.

“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,” Cameron, 53, lamented.

Cameron Doubles Down

Cameron also cited the U.S. Constitution as a means for Americans to protect themselves from tyranny.

“We don’t tolerate tyranny, either from the outside or the inside, and that is a very essential Christian virtue,” he explained. “If you’re gonna cuss me out and you’re gonna steal my coat, I might love you anyway and give you my shirt too.”

“But you come after my kids, or you start stripping away my liberties, or you make my neighbors live in poverty and misery so that you can go live on Epstein island? No, I think we shouldn’t tolerate that,” he continued.
