Don’t Let Kirk Win

Earlier I announced my plan to protest Kirk Cameron’s decision to spread a creationist’s version of The Origin of Species by burning all my memories of Growing Pains. A Lazy Man disagrees with my choice:

Still, Kirk Cameron can’t have my memories. He can tell 50,000 people about Johann Kepler’s supposed views on god (a man who died 229 years before the this book was published), he can make crappy movies about the end of the world and he can believe whatever he likes, these are his rights and I can’t dispute them. But he doesn’t get to take my memories too. I’m keeping them and you should keep yours, otherwise Kirk wins.

I must say this gives me a lot to think about.  Your Thoughts?
