“I’m thinking, ‘Wow, if we’re so committed to diversity, why am I being excluded?'” Cameron told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday. “Why can’t I use your facility to read my book? You’re a library.'”
Cameron said one of the “most outrageous denials” came from a library in Alameda County, California, which rejected his request to read his book because it included biblical values.
The Growing Pains star’s new book, As You Grow, which was released last week, follows the journey of a tree’s growth. Cameron noted that it details “biblical wisdom through the seasons of life to children and the value of growing the fruit of the Spirit, like love, joy, kindness, patience, gentleness, self-control.”
“My understanding of history is that the family and the church are two great pillars of Western civilization,” Cameron said. “Those two things need to be removed and taken out of the way in order to fundamentally change the power structure and the moral value code of the nation.”
Cameron called on conservative parents and grandparents to follow his example and request to read their favorite children’s story in libraries hosting drag queen story hours “to turn that denial into a revival.”
“Let’s invest in our children and teach them the values we want them to learn,” he said.
