Brody's Notes... Former SNL Castmember Takes Anti-Gay Remarks About Glee To Primetime

By Brody Levesque (Washington DC) MAR 22 | Former Saturday Night Live castmember Victoria Jackson who wrote an op-ed calling the kiss between two gay characters "sickening," and who is an outspoken political conservative, unleashed her views in a homophobic rant for the conservative website WorldNetDaily.com.
She wrote: "Did you see Glee this week? Sickening!"
The devout Christian added: "And, besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians – again! I wonder what their agenda is?
Hey, producers of Glee – what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?"
In the episode, two gay characters Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) share a long-awaited kiss.
Last night, she appeared on "Showbiz Tonight" on CNN, maintaining her stance and reiterated a quote from her column:
"Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an "alternate lifestyle"! There I said it! Ridiculous!"
Jackson is an active member of the Tea Party movement and writes frequent columns criticising  President Barack Obama, who she had once described as the "anti-Christ."

As bad, stupid, and irritating as the comments made by bigoted, ignorant, and hateful supposed Christians are, the 'airtime' given to them is much worse. Let them shout their bile from the street corners, but don't give them the media coverage to make it go any further.

she's kind of right though... gays cant complain that theyre being persecuted anymore than christians these days.
