Christian and Former ‘Superman’ Actor Dean Cain Reacts to Superman Being Bisexual

“I don’t think it’s bold or brave or some crazy new direction,” the God’s Not Dead actor said. “If they had done this 20 years ago, perhaps that would be bold or brave. But brave would be having him fight for the rights of gay people in Iran where they’ll throw you off a building for the offense of being gay.”

Cain offered suggestions as to what the Man of Steel should be focusing on, saying, “Why don’t they have him fight the injustices that created the refugees whose deportation he’s protesting? That would be brave. I’d read that — or fighting for the rights of women to attend school and work and live, and boys not to be raped by men under the new warm and fuzzy Taliban.”

The former Superman continued, “There’s real evil in this world today, real corruption and government overreach…It’d be great to tackle those issues. I’d like to see the character doing that.”

Earlier this year, Cain told Christian Post, “I am certainly a person of faith. I’m Christian, my son went to a Christian high school, and he was raised Christian. We’ve discussed religion ad nauseam, and back and forth.”

“I like making movies of faith and discussing faith and showing faith in a positive light,” Cain said. “I feel like there’s been a real big-time attack on Christianity and morality in a sense recently, and I don’t agree with it.”

Al Mohler and Others Respond

Southern Baptist Theological Seminary’s president Dr. Albert Mohler spoke about DC Comics’ decision on his podcast The Briefing, calling it really “big news.” Mohler said, “The ideology behind the bisexual Superman — it can change characters, but it can’t reverse creation.” Mohler dedicated the majority of his 23-minute briefing to Monday’s announcement.

Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary’s president Daniel Akin responded on Twitter to a CNN opinion piece about the power of a queer Superman, saying, “CNN—There is no power in this, just more gender confusion with respect to how our good God wisely and distinctly made us male and female.”

Founder of G3 Ministries Dr. Josh Buice tweeted, “For those who are outraged that DC Comics would aim their woke cannon at Superman (a character who once symbolized masculinity) by turning him into an effeminate homosexual—be more outraged when Big Eva turns the woke cannon on Jesus and his Church. #NotWoke
