Today is National Siblings Day! The other day a year we pretend to like our built-in best friends because social media tells us to. (The first day is Christmas, because presents, obvs.)

Kirk Cameron, a former child actor who has referred to homosexuality as unnatural and destructive, took to Facebook this week and slammed the Grammy Awards for featuring 33 marriage ceremonies - many of them same-sex couples - on stage Sunday night.

The unusual event took place during a performance of performance of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Same Love," with Queen Latifah officiating the unions.

"How did you like the Grammy's all out assault on the traditional family last night?" the 43-year-old wrote in a post that has since been taken down from his account.

Cameron then went on to promote his new film, Mercy Rule, contrasting it with what he considers to be the abomination of gay marriage.

"Now more than ever, we must work together to create the world we want for our children," he wrote.

The trailer for Kirk Cameron's new movie, Unstoppable, was banned by Facebook and YouTube, but the ban has since been lifted on both, to his delight.

“Victory!! Friends, you did it,” the former Growing Pains star wrote on his personal page after a campaign to get the bans overturned was successful.

YouTube initially labeled the controversial Unstoppable teaser a violation of its “policy against spam, scams and commercially deceptive content.”

The new film, the devoutly conservative Christian says, addresses why God lets bad things happen to good people, and his personal journey of faith.

“If God is good, why is there so much suffering? Why all the pain? Why does He allow evil to in a world when he could stop it?” Cameron asks.

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar from 19 Kids and Counting and Kirk Cameron are like totally friends. He's even appearing on their show - for the second time!

Controversial Kirk, who recently defended Todd Akin and said homosexuality is destructive to society, hangs with the Duggar fam on its most recent episode.

The Arkansas brood chilled with their favorite actor in D.C. The gang decides to go to Ben's Chili Bowl, one of President Obama's favorite places in the city.

"It's one of our favorite places, to go," Jim Bob says. "We have that in common."

Kirk actually appeared on the show when it was just 18 Kids and Counting (above). "We decided to get together tonight and have a little reunion," he says.

Amusingly, on said reunion in our nation's capital, a couple of fans want to take a picture ... with the Duggars. They have no idea who Kirk Cameron is.

"Do you know who he is?" Jim Bob asks. "He's Kirk Cameron." Kirk, for his part, just smiles and says nothing. As Michelle says, "It was quite funny."

Up next: the family should totally invite Kirk over to sample its Duggars Tater Tot Casserole recipe.

Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin is facing criticism and calls to drop out after his shocking remarks about rape this week, but he has at least one supporter left:

Kirk Cameron.

Akin, who opposes abortion even for rape victims, said women are very unlikely to become pregnant from rape anyway, because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”

Many national Republicans, including presidential and vice presidential candidates Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, distanced themselves from Akin. Not Kirk.

cameron-akin

Cameron, who's made headlines for calling homosexuality destructive to society, and who also questions evolution, does know about media firestorms.

On CNN this morning, he said Akin merely "mis-phrased something and that he apologized and that [Akin] is clearly a pro-life advocate and I respect him."

Currently a member of Congress, Akin released a statement after the interview saying he “misspoke,” but hasn’t backed away from his remarks.

Despite calls on Akin to get out of the close U.S. Senate race in Missouri, so far he’s staying in, with Cameron saying he supports that decision.

“I’m the kind of person that believes that I would like to be evaluated by my entire career and my entire life, not two words that I would misspeak and then later apologize for,” Cameron told CNN. “So he’s in a tough spot.”

Well, if it were only "legitimate rape," maybe he'd have a case - as in he misspoke and meant a legitimately proven rape, not just a false accusation.

The female body has ways to shut it down, though? Tougher to explain away ... or take seriously anyone who thinks that's remotely the case.

What do you think: Should Akin drop out?

Kirk Cameron, who caused an uproar by calling homosexuality unnatural, detrimental to society and immoral in an interview with Piers Morgan in March, is at it again.

Well, a lot more subtly this time.

The National Organization for Marriage has just released a video labeling Cameron "one of America's most important champions of marriage."

It's an apparent tip of the hat in response to his vocal opposition to gay marriage, and suffice it to say, gay rights activists are far from pleased.

"Kirk Cameron and the anti-gay activists at NOM are making a claim that Americans know to be false," GLAAD President Herndon Graddick said.

"This rhetoric won't work anymore. Communities across this country love and cherish their LGBT neighbors, friends and family members."

Cameron's anti-gay views are not as expressly stated this time, but the implication of the video above is that marriage only applies to heterosexuals.

"If we want a great future in this world, we have to take God at his word," the former Growing Pains star says in the "Champion of Marriage" video.

Kirk Cameron appeared on The Today Show Tuesday and discussed the recent controversy surrounding his anti-gay views ... as well as his new movie.

The former Growing Pains star says he's surprised at the reaction to his interview on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight, while insisting he meant no harm.

Asked if he’s guilty of hate speech, Cameron reiterated his past defense of his comments, saying, “Absolutely not. I love all people. I hate no one.”

Cameron said that he, too, was being bullied by destructive speech in this case, and debate over social issues shouldn't be reduced to sound bites.

"I was surprised, frankly, that people were surprised by the things that I've said," he explained. "I have been consistent for 15 years as a Christian."

"I'm a Bible-believing Christian. What I would have thought was more newsworthy is if I had said something that contradicted my own faith."

"When you take a subject and reduce it to something like a four-second sound bite or a check mark on a ballot, I think that that's inappropriate."

"To edit it down to that, it certainly didn't reflect my full heart on the matter."

Under fire for his anti-gay comments on Piers Morgan Tonight, former Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron defended himself in a Facebook post Tuesday.

His tone was less combative and his comments much better-worded, but Kirk did not apologize for his beliefs, or the manner in which he voiced them.

In fact, Cameron criticized the media and those contributing to the backlash, defending principles he stands for and the right to express them publicly.

The actor defended his appearance on CNN (below) this way:

"During the CNN interview, I was asked to express my views about homosexuality, gay marriage, and abortion. While that was not the agreed-upon purpose of the interview, I was pleased to answer Piers' questions as honestly as I could.

"To some, my responses were not sufficiently 'loving' toward the gay community. I can only say that it is my life's mission to love all people, and I expressed the same views clearly and emphatically expressed throughout Judeo-Christian scriptures."

"As a Bible believing Christian, I could not have answered any other way."

Kirk Cameron's recent comments to Piers Morgan on gay marriage and homosexuality in general - he's not a fan, to put it mildly - are causing quite a stir.

Cameron, a born-again Christian, said on Friday's show that he does not support gay marriage, and when it comes to homosexuality in general, he said:

"I think that it's ... unnatural. I think that it's detrimental, and ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization."

Piers then noted that if one of his sons told him he was gay, he'd say it's great as long as he was happy, and asked Kirk how he would treat such a situation.

Cameron responded that he'd talk to them about the "issues" we "wrestle through" in our lives and encourage them not to act on everything they feel.

He also criticized Piers for trying to "define" morality. Pot, meet kettle?

Herndon Graddick, Sr. Director of Programs at GLAAD, says Cameron, a Born-Again Christian, has views more dated than his Growing Pains character.

He calls Kirk "out of step with a vast majority of American, particularly people of faith who believe their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be loved and accepted based on their character, not condemned because of their sexual orientation."

GLAAD plans on monitoring Cameron's media bookings to ensure "the news and entertainment industry is aware of his outrageous anti-gay views."

Cameron has also taken on Stephen Hawking and Darwin in recent years. Spoiler alert: He doesn't subscribe to those guys' views either.

British physicist Stephen Hawking may be one of the smartest humans of all time, but his recent claim that Heaven doesn't exist were guaranteed to generate significant backlash. Enter actor and Evangelical Christian Kirk Cameron.

Hugely active in his church, Kirk says Hawking, who called heaven a "fairy story for people afraid of the dark," has no scientific evidence to back that up.

Kirk Cameron on the Today Show

How can the Growing Pains star say that's the case?

Well, Cameron told TMZ the following: "Professor Hawking is heralded as 'the genius of Britain,' yet he believes in the scientific impossibility that nothing created everything and that life sprang from non-life."

"Why should anyone believe Mr. Hawking's writings if he cannot provide evidence for his unscientific belief that out of nothing, everything came? [Hawking] says he knows there is no Heaven. John Lennon wasn't sure."

"[Lennon] said to pretend there's no Heaven. That's easy if you try. Then he said he hoped that someday we would join him. Such wishful thinking reveals John and Stephen's religious beliefs, not good science."

There you have it. Kirk Cameron vs. John Lennon and Stephen Hawking, all in one story. Bet you didn't expect that in your daily dose of celebrity gossip!

What do you think, though? Is Heaven legit?
