Anderson Cooper's go-to guy re: end times? 'Growing Pains' alum Kirk Cameron
It turns out that Kirk Cameron may actually be more sensible than Anderson Cooper. Not that this is a difficult bar to set. Why? Because even Cameron was amused by the CNN anchor's decision to interview him as an "end times" expert.
Cameron once thrilled tweens as Mike Seaver on the Alan Thicke-led '80s-era sitcom "Growing Pains" and has, of late, starred in the "Left Behind" series of movies about a post-rapture world. He's the real thing, too, having become a born again Christian at the age of 17. Along with some other dude, he also founded The Way of the Master (which so sounds like a Shaw Bros. kung-fu movie) evangelical ministry.
Why would Cooper be in need of an apocalyptic know-it-all? Duh. Because of the dead birds and fish that seem to be suddenly turning up worldwide.
"I think it's really kind of silly to equate birds falling out of the sky with some kind of end times theory," said Cameron in the interview. He then went on to suggest that dead birds are more of a pagan thing.
Maybe Alyssa Milano would be more helpful? Or Cooper could call on pal Kathy Griffin to weigh in when the massive shark that he's currently jumping keels over.
