Actor Alan Thicke has taken to Twitter in regards to homophobic comments made by his former TV son, Kirk Cameron.
In his appearance, Friday, on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, Cameron called homosexuality unnatural and destructive.
"I think that it's unnatural. I think that it's detrimental and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization,” he said. "One man, one woman for life till death do you part....So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't.”
"I'm getting him some new books. The Old Testament simply can't be expected to explain everything,” Thicke tweeted, Monday, in regard to Cameron’s remarks.
Thicke and Cameron played father and son on the sitcom, Growing Pains, which ran on ABC from 1985-1992.
Other celebrities who have criticized Cameron’s words include Rosanne Barr and Tracey Gold, who played his sister on Pains.
"Kirk or kurt or whatever cameron is an accomplice to murder with his hate speech. so is rick warren. their peers r killing gays in uganda,” Barr said.
One actor who actually sided with Cameron is actor Stephen Baldwin.
"GREAT JOB Kirk !!! Let's pray one day Piers Morgan finds true Salvation, God Bless!" he tweeted.
Cameron became known for his Christian evangelicalism once Pains ended its television run. He is one of the founders of the ministry The Way of the Master.
