Fellow former child stars have a message for Kirk Cameron

In new Funny or Die Video, Cameron's anti-gay views are slammed

Fellow former child stars have a message for Kirk Cameron
13 April 2012

Kirk Cameron's opinion that homosexuality is  'detrimental,' 'unnatural' and 'ultimately destructive' does not appear to be shared by his fellow former child stars from the 80s.

A group of them calling themselves CCOKCs (Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron) are slamming the former star of ABC's Growing Pains in a new Funny or Die video.

In the video, the group says they are uniting to 'raise awareness about a serious threat to our civil rights: Kirk Cameron's stupid opinions.'

Jeremy Licht of The Hogan Family says: 'As former child stars ourselves, we don't want to be associated with that horsesh-t.'

In addition to Licht, others appearing to rip on Cameron are Maureen Flannigan (Out of This World), Keith Coogan (Adventures in Babysitting), Josie Davis (Charles in Charge)  Kenn Michael (The Parent Hood), Brice Beckham (Mr. Belvedere), and Christine Lakin (Step by Step).

Susan Olson, who played Cindy Brady on The Brady Bunch, posted a comment on the Funny or Die comments page wishing she could have taken part: 'Why wasn't I called for this??? Come on, 70s kid actors hate Kirk just as much!'

For the record, here is what Cameron had to say about homosexuality on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight last month: 'I think that it's unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.'

And his opinion of gay marriage: '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. And I don't think anyone else should either. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't.'
