Kirk Cameron defends Rep. Akin after 'legitimate rape' comments: 'I respect him...he's in a tough spot' -- VIDEO

Oh, Mike Seaver.

After GOP Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s controversial remarks on a local network yesterday — claiming that women were unlikely to get pregnant from rape because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down” — many national Republican leaders, including Gov. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, distanced themselves from Akin.

One defender? Kirk Cameron. The child-star-turned-evangelist was on CNN this morning discussing the remarks, and Cameron encouraged people to watch the whole video (which you can here) and then said, “[Akin] is clearly a pro-life advocate and I respect him. He said that he misspoke and that he misphrased something and that he apologized.” READ FULL STORY

Former '80s child stars rally against Kirk Cameron's 'stupid opinions' -- VIDEO

What do Maureen Flannigan, Keith Coogan, and Josie Davis have in common? Aside from being former child stars from neon-splattered ’80s sitcoms, the three are all CCOKCs (pronounced exactly how you think it is): Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron.

In a new Funny Or Die video, the erstwhile teen thespians — including Kenn Michael (The Parent ‘Hood), Brice Beckham (Mr. Belvedere), Jeremy Licht (The Hogan Family), and a surprisingly hot Christine Lakin (Step by Step) — join together in solidarity against their former peer Kirk Cameron, whose incendiary remarks about homosexuals launched the wrath of a thousand seven child stars.

“We’re pledging to raise awareness about a serious threat to our civil rights: Kirk Cameron’s stupid opinions,” say the actors from the ’80s and ’90s. “As former child stars ourselves, we don’t want to be associated with that horses—.” Watch the video below, lest I spoil more of what’s spewed from the mouths of the poster children of a lost era.

Kirk Cameron tells 'Today' he's not a bully, says he loves 'all people'

Kirk Cameron wants us to all to know that he loves “all people” and hates “no one.” In fact, he’s not guilty of hate speech at all, the Growing Pains star said in an appearance on the Today show this morning. The devout Christian and father of six stopped by to talk about his new movie Monumental and try to put out the fire started by his recent controversial comments about homosexuality.

“When you take a subject and reduce it to a four-second sound bite and a checkmark on a ballot, I think that’s inappropriate and insensitive,” he said of how he unintentionally ignited the controversy. In fact, Cameron stands by his comments and insists he’s not a bully. See his thoughts on the uproar in the full interview below. READ FULL STORY

Kirk Cameron to ABC News: 'I should be able to express moral views on social issues'

MORGAN-CAMERON

Four days after calling homosexuality “unnatural,” “detrimental,” and “ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization” during an appearance on Piers Morgan Tonight, actor Kirk Cameron has responded to the criticism that erupted following his remarks. In an e-mail to ABCNews.com today, Cameron wrote, “I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it’s my life’s mission to love all people.”

“I should be able to express moral views on social issues,” he said, “especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years — without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach ‘tolerance’ that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I’m in the public square.” READ FULL STORY
