Here's the big news: Kirk Cameron is still alive.
Here's the not-so-big news: Piers Morgan couldn't find anyone else to be on his interview show.
Or maybe Morgan just knew that having Kirk Cameron on his show would result in the '80s sitcom star saying a bunch of things that would make the Internet burn with outrage Monday morning.
Mission accomplished. Cameron, who is the possessor of some extreme views, told Morgan in an interview broadcast Friday that homosexuality is "unnatural ... I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."
Well, it's a good thing for civilization that homosexuality has only been around for a couple of years. Or we'd be in real trouble by now.
On the issue of marriage equality Cameron said, "Marriage was defined by God a long time ago. 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."
Death do you part? Then what am I doing still paying my lawyer?
Cameron went on, "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."
I have a feeling they don't listen to a lot of Broadway cast albums at the Cameron household.
When asked what he would do if one of his six kids told him "I'm gay," Cameron responded, "I'd sit down and I'd have a heart to heart with them, just like you'd do with your kids."
Morgan retorted, "I'd say, 'That's great, son. As long as you're happy.' What would you say?"
Cameron said "I wouldn't say 'That's great, son, as long as you're happy.' There are all sorts of issues we need to wrestle through in our life .... Just because you feel one way doesn't mean we should act on everything we feel."
As one can imagine, gay-rights group GLAAD isn't happy. In a statement, Herndon Graddick, senior director of programs at GLAAD, said that Cameron "sounds even more dated than his 1980s TV character" and added that he "is out of step with a growing majority of Americans, particularly people of faith who believe that their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved an accepted based on their character and not condemned because of their sexual orientation."
Morgan defended Cameron to TMZ, saying that he was "pretty brave" for speaking out. "I felt that he was honest to what he believed," Morgan said, "and I don't think he was expecting the furor that it created."
Probably not. But Morgan probably did.
