On Monday, the actor used his official Facebook page to denounce the televised marriages and also took the opportunity to put in a plug for his new movie, starring his wife and comedian Tim Hawkins.

The post, which received 1,700,000 likes and has since been taKen Down read as follows:

How did you like the Grammy's all out assault on the traditional family last night? As a husband and father, I am proud to announce the release of my new family movie, MERCY RULE. Last night, the lines were drawn thick and dark. Now more than ever, we must work together to create the world we want for our children. I'm hoping that just as Fireproof restored marriages, MERCY RULE will strengthen families. [...]

The remainder of the post was a promo for his new film:

Long gone from the mainstream spotlight, evangelical Christian, Cameron gained attention two years ago when during an interview with CNN's Piers Morgan he said that homosexuality was "unnatural" and "ultimately destructive." That and subsequent comments made by the former sitcom teen heartthrob was the inspiration for a "Funny Or Die" video titled "CCOKC - Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron" that featured several former child stars from the 80s.
