Former child stars have banded together to denounce actor Kirk Cameron's views on homosexuality after he called it “unnatural” and “destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization.”

Calling themselves "Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron" -- "CCOKC" for short -- the group filmed a spoof public service announcement challenging the former "Growing Pains" teen idol to "name one thing homosexuals have done to hurt him, his community or civilization as a whole."

The video, posted this week on the website Funny or Die, features seven former child stars from the 1980s and 1990s, including Kenn Michael from "The Parent 'Hood," Maureen Flannigan from "Out of this World" and Christine Lakin from “Step By Step."

“Together we’re pledging to raise awareness about a serious threat to our civil rights -- Kirk Cameron’s stupid opinions,” they say in the 2-minute clip.

"We've met Kirk and he's a very pleasant guy," the actors add. "The problem, is he's one of us and he should know better."

According to ABC News, Cameron's representatives have seen the video but declined to comment on it.

Cameron made his initial comments last month on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." He has since responded to the backlash, defending his views as a "Bible-believing Christian."
