Yes, Kirk Cameron seriously just likened himself to Jesus. Talk about a messiah complex! From Right Wing Watch:

Kirk Cameron, who compared the backlash to the anti-gay statements he made on Piers Morgan Tonight to the persecution of Puritans in England and being “drug out to the public square and stoned so to speak,” told Liberty University students last week that “blasphemy laws are still alive and well in America” and that his critics tried to “crucify me” because he had “blasphemed the God of Political Correctness.” He said conservative Christians shouldn’t be “wussing out” when confronted by questions about homosexuality and should deliver a message of “truth in love” in order to “see people in a right relationship with God, helped and healed and whole.”

If you’d like to watch Cameron’s woe-is-me remarks, RWW also has video:

Note to Kirk: you’re not some kind of a savior, you’re just a washed-up, bigoted has-been who’s grasping desperately for relevance. Please, climb off of that cross.
