Saturday Night Live cast member Victoria Jackson is drawing fire for criticizing Fox's beloved musical Glee. Days after calling the show's recent gay kiss "sickening," Jackson said in an interview that the show is "stealing the innocence away" from children.
"Well, it doesn't matter what I think. What matters is what the Bible says," Jackson told Headline News' Showbiz Tonight on Monday. "I'm really concerned about our country because immorality is, well, let's see: secular humanism rules the airwaves, and it's stealing the innocence away from this whole generation of children. My daughter is a teenager and I can't find any show that she can watch."
The 51-year-old actress, who appeared on SNL from 1986 to 1992, first drew fire online last week for her column on WorldDailyNet that called the liplock shared between Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) on the March 15 episode "sickening."
"Besides shoving the gay thing down our throats, they made a mockery of Christians — again," she wrote. "I wonder what their agenda is? Hey, producers of Glee - what's your agenda? One-way tolerance?"
Later, on Showbiz Tonight, Jackson rebuffed a question about whether she is homophobic. "That's a cute little buzzword of the liberal agenda," Jackson said. "Basically, the Bible says homosexuality is a sin." She later claimed that she has gay friends.
Jackson said the show was not helping kids, as CNN readers argued online, and gave her own suggestion for one way Glee could help teenagers.
"They should have a celibacy campaign and tell kids that 50 percent of teenagers now have this new STD from oral sex, that's what they should try to be doing instead of trying to make kids gay," Jackson said. "I just want to know why the liberals are pro-Muslim and pro-gays. Muslims kill gays. That's what's confusing to me. And the only thing I can come up with is that the Mulims hate God and the gays hate his word."
