Victoria Jackson suggests gay people
don't refer to themselves as homosexuals because they are covering up
their true identity.
On the debut of her Victoria Jackson
Show, Jackson, a Saturday Night Live alum, asked Gary
Demar, author of God and Government, what homosexuality is.
“What is homosexuality? Wait a
minute, I have never heard anyone ever say this: What is
homosexuality?” Jackson asked her guest.
“In every discussion of homosexual
marriage or homosexuality they use the word 'gay,' and there's a
reason for that. Because they are covering up what the real issue
is. In many discussions today, people are trying to equate
homosexuality with racial issues. Race, skin color is benign,
there's no behavior attached to a person's race. They look a
particular way because of skin pigmentation. That's it. But
homosexuality is about some sort of sexual, not just sexual thoughts
but sexual actions. So you never hear anybody say, 'Wait a minute.
What is a person that claims to be gay? What are they actually doing
that people object to?' And no one ever asks the question because I
think they are afraid of what the answer's going to be,” Demar
“What's the answer?” an inquisitive
“I can't tell anybody on this program
because I would have to describe what homosexuals do,” he answered.
Jackson and Demar agreed that words
such as “gay” and “gay rights” were devised to conceal the
truth about homosexuality. (The video is embedded in the right panel
