Christian actor Kirk Cameron, who played “Mike Seaver” in the 80’s sitcom “Growing Pains and has been doing Christian outreach and ministry for decades now, took a cue from Sean Feutch and his ‘Let us Worship’ tour by organizing mass Christmas caroling events, without masks, in defiance of shutdown laws which prohibit such a large gathering.
The most recent event which took place in the parking lot of Thousands Oaks Mall in California drew hundreds of revelers, with Cameron writing on his Instagram account “Peaceful protest in song” and “If you love God, if you love Christmas, and you love liberty, you’re not going to want to miss this.”
The event drew criticism from local government officials, naturally, with Thousand Oaks Mayor Claudia Bill-de la Pena saying:
“Liberty and freedom are very fragile and they come with great responsibility. Continuing to hold large gatherings and ignoring all guidelines, I feel, is unchristian.”
In response to the criticism, Cameron said in an interview with Shannon Bream:
Well he’s no one to judge someone else’s faith. All I can tell you is that I’m looking around in my community and I’m seeing the devastation and the suffering of people whose businesses have been bankrupted, people dealing with anxiety, depression, suicide is spiking, the abused being quarantined with their abusers, and I can’t just ignore that. I love my neighbors, and so I want to give them hope, and we’re offering people a chance to come sings songs of hope, and that’s exactly what people want to be doing at Christmas time.
[We will continue gathering] People are just clamoring to come and be a part of them. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave and there are thousands and thousands of people in our community who would rather not suffer in isolation and come out to sing and express their gratitude because we believe that there is immunity in community, but there is desolation in isolation, and I want to give people hope.
