During an appearance on the Howard
Stern Show, Victoria Jackson said she opposes gay marriage
because it “would make God mad.”
The 53-year-old Jackson was on the show
to pitch her autobiography Is My Bow Too Big? How I Went From
Saturday Night Live To The Tea Party.
“God made the rules,” she told host
Howard Stern. “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.”
“But you understand intellectually
that the Bible was written by a man?” Stern asked.
“I have gay friends,” she
responded. “And I don't make their identity their sexuality. To
me, he's my fun, theater-loving, funny friend. … Why is his
identity his sexuality?”
“But Victoria, you have disdain for
their lifestyle,” Stern said.
“I don't have disdain. … I don't
believe there's such a thing as gay marriage. The definition of
marriage is man and woman.”
“But let's change the definition,”
Stern interrupted. “Why not? Why can't people who love each other
“Because that would make God mad,”
she answered. (A clip of the exchange is embedded on this page.
