Former Kid Star Kirk Cameron Deems Gays 'Unnatural, Destructive'

Kirk Cameron, the former lead of mid-1980's Growing Pains family TV series, is apparently suffering his own internal pain in moving past a mindset that is as outdated as his relevance as an actor.

During an interview Friday, March 2, with CNN's Piers Morgan, the born-again Christian and evangelist (who, among other things, refutes Darwin's theory of evolution) yammered that homosexuality is "unnatural, detrimental and destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

Cameron, 41, who now makes his fortune producing & starring in Christian-themed movies about action heroes fighting the Antichrist after the Rapture, also shared his views on marriage equality, according to my pal at the Randy Report. Kirk told Morgan: "Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life, till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. Do I support the idea of gay marriage? No."

When asked what he would do if one of his six kids told him that he's gay, Cameron responded, blinking manically, "I wouldn't say, 'That's great, son, as long as you're happy.' There are all sorts of issues we need to wrestle through in our life. Just because you feel one way doesn't mean we should act on everything we feel."

Good to know that, Kirk. So if you happen to walk by me on the street, I should not act on dumping a dozen rotten eggs in your bigoted face. Got it. *
