    Actor Kirk Cameron is facing backlash over his recent comments on women's role in marriage, according to Today.com. 

    The former "Growing Pains" star recently told The Christian Post, citing the Bible, that "Wives are to honor and respect and follow their husband's lead, not to tell their husband how he ought to be a better husband."

    Cameron, and Evangelical Christian and a father of six, is currently on a speaking tour called "A Love Worth Fighting For," visiting churches to discuss marriage.

    The actor's comments sparked uproar on social media, with one woman tweeting, Cameron "isn't qualified to give anyone advice on anything."

    Cameron's spokesperson told "Today" that his words were taken out of context, saying "husbands should love and protect their wives." The actor has come under fire in the past, speaking out against gay marriage in 2012.
