Saturday Night Live alum
Victoria Jackson has defended saying a kiss between Chris Colfer and
Darren Criss on the Fox musical-comedy Glee sickened her.
The 51-year-old entertainer – who was
widely criticized for her comments – argues such programming robs
children of their innocence.
In the recent episode Original Song,
Criss' Blaine Anderson confessed his feelings for Kurt Hummel, played
by Colfer. The pair kissed after Blaine said Kurt's singing of the
song Blackbird had moved him.
The kiss came after months of
speculation on whether the pair, who sing alongside each other in the
Dalton Academy Warblers, would become romantically involved.
In an op-ed titled The Muslims Next
Door published last Friday on the socially conservative website
WorldNetDaily.com, Jackson railed against the show.
“Did you see Glee this week?”
she rhetorically asked. “Sickening! 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?”
Jackson went on to defend her comments
on several television outlets and on Friday she scolded her
detractors in a
second op-ed titled Homosexuality And The Cross.
In the piece, she calls her CNN
interview an “interrogation,” and that her interviewer's eyes
were “full of hate.”
“These people are robots, pod
people,” she wrote. “They have no minds of their own. They say
the words they've been programmed to say, even if it's stupid. They
support the Muslim agenda. However, Muslims kill homosexuals and
behead women. When these pod people get confused, they shout, 'Hate
Jackson said she was dismayed that
Inside Edition would broadcast the gay kiss from Glee,
arguing that children were being
robbed of their innocence.
“Small children are watching Glee,
ABC Family, and other hundred sex-saturated shows, and now Inside
Edition is showing the gay kiss over and over and over.”
“American children, with their blank
slate, fertile minds anxious to learn and receive guidance and
information, are being brainwashed by the secular-humanist media to
be sexually promiscuous/ambiguous and anti-God. The innocence of an
entire generation has been stolen. They will not know love letters,
romance, purity or the blessings of following Jesus. They are not
being taught that there is such a thing as sin, or that sin always
leads to heartache. They are being taught that there are no
absolutes and that whatever feels good is truth. Secular humanism:
It's the great lie of Satan.”
But the Glee gay kiss is just a
starting point for Jackson, who goes on to compare gay and lesbian
unions to adultery: “Gays propagate the opinion that they were
born this way and have no choice. They say they did not ask for
their same-sex attraction. Everyone I know was born with sexual
attraction they did not ask for. Should they act on it? Should my
husband commit adultery because he has an attraction to another
woman? Should my teenager fornicate because she was born with a
strong urge to have sex with her boyfriend? Should I have sex with
anyone I am attracted to?”
She then returns to chide television
programs for “glorifying” being gay.
“Actors play murderers, robbers and
gossips, but the gay lifestyle is always glorified,” she says.
“The other sins always seem to be punished or redeemed, but TV
shows never show the downside to homosexuality: the loneliness,
shame, broken families and marriages, diseases. The shame does not
come from 'society' but from God.”
