'SNL' Alum Victoria Jackson Slams Gay Kiss on 'Glee'
By Christo Varghese Posted Mar 21st 2011 06:45AM
'Glee' characters Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) kissed for the first time last week. And it wasn't a peck. It was, by many accounts, a perfect kiss.
Jackson, however, did not think so, and she ranted against the kiss and the TV show on WorldNetDaily. She wrote in her column, "Did you see 'Glee' this week? 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's comments came after she expressed some strong thoughts and words for the Muslim and Arab world, where she referenced the 'Glee' kiss first. "This new al-Qaida magazine for women has beauty tips and suicide-bomber tips! Gimme a break! That is as ridiculous as two men kissing on the mouth!"
She continued, "And I don't care what is politically correct. Everyone knows that two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an 'alternate lifestyle!' There I said it! Ridiculous!"
Commenting on the now famous kiss, GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios told PopEater, "'Glee' has raised the bar of what it means to be inclusive on TV, and viewers are tuning in by the millions, sending a clear message to networks that Americans not only accept gay and lesbian characters, but they are beginning to expect them. It's stories like Kurt and Blaine's that continue to remind gay youth everywhere that there's nothing wrong with being who you are."
Jackson is known for her outspoken and often controversial thoughts and views. Huffington Post reports that in 2008, she wrote that President Obama had traits of "the Anti-Christ" and accused him having close friendship with "Communists, domestic and Muslim terrorists, racists and convicted felons."
