No, they're failing to pick their battles, which is somewhat dumbasserish(?) but does not rise to the thundering level, which most of what comes out of Kirk Cameron's mouth does.

While simply presenting the audience with their homebrew Crocoduck alone would clearly have been stupid enough to make their point, Kirk and Ray actually figured it was reasonable to present two additional creations of theirs — the "Sheep-dog" and "Bull-frog", respectively.

The lack of creative talent available to this dynamic duo becomes all the more obvious when considering that both "bullfrog" and "sheepdog" already name animals which even Ray and Kirk must reasonably know exist.
Anyway, this statement from Kirk on hurricanes doesn't reflect my worldview or any reasonable interpretation of reality imo but it's not that bad.

Not in a vacuum, but...time and place, man, time and place.

If my roof had just blown off in a hurricane I'd want to kick him in the nuts. But since it hasn't, I think I kind of understand the sentiment.

Dumb thing to say because people gonna people but what are you gonna do?

Not sure why God hasn't been punishing the South for 300 years. Unless he thought slavery was OK. And Jim Crow Laws. And lynchings. And marrying one's own cousins.
