Okay, I’ve figured it out.
If you know me fairly well at all, you know that I have (what I’ve always thought was) this totally irrational hate-on for Kirk Cameron. Ever since he was in that stupid show, Growing Pains, I’ve thought that there was something somehow inherently evil about the guy. Don’t know when I started thinking that, but it was early on. I’m sure sharing satellite space with Alan Thicke didn’t help his case any, but there’s something I ran across today (thanks to the good folks at Cruel.com), I think maybe there’s more to it. More than just the totally irrational “if I ever meet him I wanna punch him” gut-level reaction I have.
Let me explain, sorta kinda.
I’ve got what doctors call a “deep focus in the temporal lobe” also known as temporal lobe epilepsy. Hasn’t done anything negative to me since I was a really really little dude. Back then (around the age of two), I could/would have seizures if I had a particularly bad wipe-out and smacked my head. Since then, I’ve had migraines and things over the years (most of which went away after the age of about 20), but here’s the thing:
Probably something to do with the whole idea of feeling like there’s some sort of greater purpose. For a lot of folks with TLE, it becomes religious zealotry. I seem to have the exact opposite: zealous non-religion, based on what I’ve seen “good church-going folks” do and say during my years of growing up in Chilliwack, British Columbia’s Bible Belt.
Don’t get me started on that place… woof-o…
Okay, so back to Cruel.com’s link to this site with Kirk. Here’s the thing:
He’s now the lead running a very slickly-produced “you’re going straight to hell” site.
So, I wonder if I’m not feeling like there’s not some sort of something going on, and that maybe Kirk’s going to end up being the evil dictator of Texas or something.
