B-List B-Day: Kirk “Take Me To Your Leader” Cameron


Oct. 12, 1970

Kirk Cameron, best known as teen heartthrob Mike Seaver on ’80s sitcom Growing Pains, is a Libra ruled by Venus, which may or may not be Cameron’s home planet.

Libras are known to be consistent and unwavering in their beliefs. An atheist in his early teens, Kirk later became a born-again Christian evangelist on a mission to convert the world.

He subsequently alienated his costars, edited and republished Darwin’s theories along with creationist arguments and misinformation; told Piers Morgan that homosexuality is “unnatural, detrimental and ultimately destructive to the foundations of civilization”; and defended Rep. Todd Akin’s comments about “legitimate rape.”

Cameron often says he wishes he had a DeLorean that would take him back in time to show the world the error of its ways.

We often say we wish we had a DeLorean that would take us back in time to when Cameron was that cute kid on the cover of Tiger Beat and not a glassy-eyed psychopath.
