Victoria Jackson was a “Saturday Night Live” cast member from 1986 to 1992 and then kind of dropped off the radar, until making headlines in 2011 for endorsing the Tea Party and singing songs like “There’s a Communist Living in the White House” and saying President Obama is part of the Muslim Brotherhood and trying to take down the U.S. government from the inside.
Now in the last two weeks, Jackson has taken to the airwaves to express her feelings on some hot-button issues. The above video is from Howard Stern’s radio show, where Stern asks her about gay marriage.
“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,” says Jackson.
“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,” she continues.
When Stern asks her why she shows disdain for their lifestyle by being against gay marriage, Jackson responds, “I don’t think there’s such a thing as gay marriage. The definition of marriage is man and woman.”
Stern suggests we change the definition of marriage and Jackson says no, because “that would make God mad.”
This comes a couple weeks after Jackson posted a video to her own YouTube channel (below) where she speaks with a woman who was born out of a rape situation. And Jackson intros the interview with, “If I was raped, I would have the baby and think of it as God making a
blessing out of something bad.”
