Like many gay men who grew up in the 80’s, I had a big crush on Kirk Cameron (a.k.a. Mike Seaver on the sitcom Growing Pains). So now that he has grown into a self-righteous bigot, proclaiming that homosexuality is “detrimental and ultimately destructive,” I feel betrayed. And if the Jesus he so frequently speaks on behalf of is perched on a cloud listening to the wayfaring former-sitcom star’s remarks, I can only imagine that he might want to put him over his knee and teach him a lesson. Perhaps it’s just a phase for Kirk – nothing that a few growing pains to the backside can’t help him overcome.
