SNL Alum Victoria Jackson Says There’s ‘No Such Thing’ As Gay Marriage
Alert the presses because Victoria Jackson has come out of obscurity to give her opinion about gay marriage, and it isn’t pretty. The Saturday Night Live alum, who was a cast member from 1986 – 1992 made headlines briefly in 2011 for endorsing the Tea Party and singing catchy little diddys such as There’s a Communist Living in the White House, has taken to the airwaves to express her feelings on gay marriage.
Shock Jock radio host Howard Stern had Victoria Jackson on his show and inevitably pushed her button on gay marriage. It was then that Jackson told Stern, “You have to take it up with God. God made the rules. He made a man and woman’s bodies fit together, he made the Ten Commandments. I believe the Bible is God’s word and I base all my world view on the Bible.”
When Stern questioned her stance and asked why she has such hate for that particular lifestyle, Victoria Jackson didn’t mince her words and responded, “I don’t think there’s such a thing as gay marriage. The definition of marriage is man and woman.” However, Stern played the devil’s advocate and suggests that we change the definition of marriage, which warranted another response out of Jackson, “that would make God mad.”
Also during the segment Victoria Jackson made it clear that she doesn’t discriminate, or at least tried to make that argument in her statement to Howard, saying, “I have gay friends … I don’t make their identity their sexuality. To me, he’s my fun, theatre-loving, funny friend … why is his identity his sexuality.”
