Fran Drescher, who stars in TV Land’s comedy “Happily Divorced” and is an outspoken activist for marriage equality, lashed out at actor Kirk Cameron Tuesday night, saying he needs to “reexamine what it is to be an American.”

The “Growing Pains” actor-turned-evangelist stirred up controversy when he made comments against homosexuality and gay marriage last week.

“I don’t agree with anything that he says,” Drescher told CBSNews.com. “I think that he is confusing our country, which is a country that separates church from state, with a religious dictatorship.”
