Teen idol down

I would like to apologize for ever having had a picture of Kirk Cameron hanging on my bedroom wall. I think it is clear for readers of this blog, and I know it's clear to those of you who know me in person, that I would never in any way condone comments like the ones he made to Piers Morgan, calling homosexuality "destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization." Seriously, what does that even mean, anyway? How much time do we now spend studying ancient Greek society? And homosexuality was pretty darn prominent in that culture. So I guess jury trials, the marathon, and the Olympics can withstand homosexuality... Oh, yeah, and democracy.

Anyway, I officially take back my adolescent crush on Kirk Cameron. But to be fair, I was only 13 at the time. And he wasn't yet making inflammatory comments like this.

He and his sister have gone pretty far down the Evangelical rabbit hole. I can honestly say he was never my type ... but I grew up with them both so the fact that they're both looney tunes is interesting to me.

"oh yeah...and democracy." Good one. Really, really good one.
