Jockerlee77 posted a video expressing his views on a recent CNN show in which Kirk Cameron was asked about his opinions on Gays and Gay Marriages.

I’m serious, my friends. This review was as good as, if not better than anything being done by any of the stars of Channel Awesome for it’s fresh comedy and perfect clip posting as well as it’s spot-on analysis of the more ludicrous aspects of the film. So, I hope you’ll all raise your glasses and join me in a toast. “Here’s to you, Gregg. Thanks for the laughs and may your wit only grow sharper as you post these wonderful videos.”
