Kirk Cameron's TV dad 'spanks' him for gay marriage remarks



growingpainsa.jpgI wasn't going to weigh in on Kirk Cameron's remarks that gay marriage is "unnatural," but I can't resist passing this along.

Alan Thicke, who played Kirk's dad on the '80s TV series Growing Pains, is having some fun at Kirk's expense on Twitter: "I'm getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can't be expected to explain everything," Thicke tweeted. "I love Kirk but I may have to spank him...'tho not in a gay way!"

Tracey Gold, who played Kirk's sister, also sounded off via Twitter: "I am a strong supporter of the #LGBT Community, and I believe in equal rights for all. #NOH8 #LOVE"

For his part, Cameron is trying to dig himself out of his hole. He issued a statement today that was picked up by USA Today. Here's a portion of it: "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."
