Victoria Jackson is standing by her rant against the “sickening” gay Glee kiss, telling Showbiz Tonight last night that "it doesn't matter what I think. What matters is what the Bible says.” Jackson, a Saturday Night Live alum turned Tea Party activist, went on to explain that she’s “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.”

When asked if she’s homophobic, Jackson held up a Bible and said, “That's a cute little buzzword of the liberal agenda. Basically, the Bible says homosexuality is a sin." Instead of airing Glee, she suggested, “They should have a celibacy campaign and tell kids that 50% of teenagers now have this new STD from oral sex, that's what they should be doing instead of trying to make kids gay. I just want to know why the liberals are pro-Muslim and pro-gay. Muslims kill gays. That's what's confusing to me. And the only thing I can come up with is that the Muslims hate God and the gays hate his word.” (Even so, as the segment was ending, she made sure to note, “I have gay friends.”) Click for Jackson’s original rant.
