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.

Former U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell defended her decision to walk off Piers Morgan Tonight, but also responded with a good-natured Tweet after the host took a dig at her past as a witch.

“Ms O’Donnell wasn’t happy about me quizzing her re withcraft and sex. But really flipped at gay marriage Qs. Ripped mike and fled,” Piers said.

“My first ever walk-out in 25 years of interviews ... do you think Christine O’Donnell is going to put a witch’s curse on me now?”

Piers then did the professional thing, inviting Christine back on his show to discuss the walk-off. But she respectfully declined on Twitter.

“Piers, thanks for the invite. Schedule is already packed, maybe another night. No hard feelings, you cheeky bugger,” she wrote.

And that's that.

The sorceress/politician told Fox News earlier today that she didn't come on CNN to speak about those hot button issues, and wanted to discuss other topics instead ... except that Piers wouldn't STFU about sex!

Former U.S. Senate candidate and possible witch Christine O'Donnell peaced out of an interview on CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight after a heated exchange.

O'Donnell, who ran unsuccessfully as a Republican for Joe Biden's old seat last fall, was there to promote her book, but ended up walking (not flying) out.

Christine was persistently asked by Piers about her views on DADT, gay marriage, and sexuality, but kept trying to steer him away from those subjects.

"You're promoting the damn book!" Morgan exclaimed after her 14th attempt to refer him to it. O'Donnell called him "borderline rude" and awkwardly left.

If nothing else, we learned that O'Donnell does not condone masturbating. Still unresolved is whether she has cast any good spells recently.
