Christian actor Kirk Cameron reacts to media attacks over stay-at-home mom praise

With President Obama setting the stage when he said being a stay-at-home-moms is “not a choice we want Americans to make,” actor Kirk Cameron found himself the target of the left’s ire when he commented on a women’s role in the home during Christmas.

“If you are a mom, if you are a wife, if you’re the keeper of your home, I want you to know that your joy is so important this Christmas,” he said in a video posted on Facebook. “Because Christmas is about joy, and if the joy of the Lord is your strength, remember the joy of the mom is her children’s strength.”

But apparently, liberals take issue with women decorating their homes for the holidays, for cooking, singing and maintaining holiday traditions, as Cameron was criticized for demeaning women.

Cameron, a strong Christian, posted the video to promote his latest project, “Saving Christmas,” and answered the criticism in an appearance Friday on Fox News’ “Outnumbered.”

“What I mean is I see how hard my wife works, and she has chosen to reserve her time, her energy, everything at this chapter in her life to pour into six kids, which is a huge job,” he said. “And I know that it is not just a little offensive to millions of moms out there who have chosen to do the same thing and sacrifice so much to be at home, when they scrape their knee and to have the house the way that they want, for someone to even imply that that is somehow less than carrying a briefcase and having a job professionally.”

While we suspect it may be his deep religious convictions that are really under fire, watch the segment here:
