Kirk Cameron Thinks The Child-Star Parody About Him Is “Funny”

After Kirk Cameron told to CNN’s Piers Morgan that homosexuality was “unnatural,” “detrimental” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization” , a cadre of former child actors got together and filmed a mock PSA video for Funny or Die, announcing the formation of CCOKC: Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron.

The clip, which has gotten more than a million views since it went up a few days ago, straight up calls Cameron a “dick.” But the former Mike Seaver is doing like Jesus and turning the other cheek, Fox News reports.

“When Kirk heard about the spoof, he didn’t have any bad feelings—in fact, he thought it was funny,” a source explained. “He doesn’t hate anybody.”

Right, right. We don’t hate Kirk either. “Hate” is such a strong word—as opposed to “unnatural” and “destructive.” Keep your eyes peeled for CCOKC-inspired merchandise and a blooper reel.

    Cameron loves CCOKC. Yeah we knew that.

    I don’t “hate” Kirk either, I just don’t approve of his chosen lifestyle. He could have been a nice guy doing nice things for people but instead he’s become a far-right, radical Christianist who calls gay people “dangerous” and “destructive” and says that he “loves” them when, in reality, his espousals are what’s destructive.

    I went to see ‘Like father like son’ about 15 times .. UGH ..

  • Charley

    The guy is just a jerk. Period.

    @Gigi:

    You said it perfectly. Kirk is entitled to his beliefs, but he turned into a stereotype of the worst type of Christian who hides behind his Bible to judge. He doesn’t use his religion to do good.

    The most interesting thing about this isn’t mentioned here. That’s his blaming Piers Morgan for asking him about his views in the first place.

    Interesting because, if thought through, it amounts to an admission that the view is reprehensible. “It’s not my fault for holding this opinion; it’s his for asking about it. And how was I supposed to know that a TV interview would involve being asked questions anyway? I’ve only been in show business since childhood.”

    This is what too much sexual repression, street corner preaching, and far right politics does to a person. I do not hate Kirk. I pity him.

  • FunMe

    Since Kirk is such a sinner for hating his own self, I mean gays … I will hate the sin of Kirk’s HATE and not the sinner.

    Gigi and Ty: GREAT comments!

    The former child stars or CCOK who are against Kirk Cameron and all of the people who are flipping out at him are just feeding his need for attention. He’s a Fundamentalist Christian I doubt he’s going to be supportive of LGBT people or our equality and it’s pointless to argue with a bigot or flip out at them since it’s not going to change them.

    @MikeSF:

    you can wear your religion on your sleeve and still embrace gay rights and the community. Margaret Cho, Kristen Chenowith and Dolly Parton are three prime examples of outspoken Christians who support gay rights.

    “When Kirk heard about the spoof, he didn’t have any bad feelings—in fact, he thought it was funny.”

    Well, I think he’s funny too. And he’s not even trying. It’s so hard to play a convincing imbecile nowadays.

    Insta-netflix has a documentary called “Constantine’s Sword—The Church and the Jews” which is a worthwhile way to spend an afternoon.
    This documentary is based on the book that James Carroll wrote, published in 2001, through Houghton Mifflin. This documentary is not boring. One of the more poignant paragraphs on page 611 reads, “To me, the most heart-rending and fearsome aspect of Michelangelo’s dark masterpiece is not despair overtaking the created world, but a smaller and more personal statement. Among the multitude of figures in the Last Judgment is a rare Michelangelo self-portrait. It is so discreetly done that his contemporaries failed to see it as him, and no wonder. Michelangelo, the genius celebrant of the human body, the creator of David and Moses and the Pieta, chose to put his own face, at last, on a shriveled, limp, formless skin that had been flayed from the body of a martyr. Apparently the artist had lost all sense of the noble things he had done, and was still doing. The self-portrait of a face ripped from its bones is an abject confession of sin, impossible to behold out from under the crushing weight of conscience. The portrait says, “I stand as accused by God as anyone in this scene.” As the artist who, in fact, conjured the devastating judgment of his own era, Michelangelo is saying, through this portrait, “There is nothing of which I accuse any other person here — Popes, Borgias, Medicis — that I do not accuse myself of.”
