Former SNL star Victoria Jackson made homophobic remarks at a local city council meeting in Franklin, Tennessee. The focus of the meeting was whether or not the city would hold a Gay Pride Parade this year. Jackson claimed that God hates homosexuality and called it an “abomination”. She also cited a verse from the Bible to support her argument. Jackson has made similar comments in the past, including criticizing a same-sex kiss on the TV show “Glee” in 2011.
Jackson has become known as a self-proclaimed conservative Christian who speaks out against homosexuality. She has previously gone on homophobic rants and was vocal about her opposition to same-sex marriage. Her comments at the city council meeting were not well received by all, with many expressing concern over her rhetoric.
Despite her controversial views, Jackson has a large following on social media and continues to be a vocal opponent of the LGBTQ+ community. Her comments highlight the ongoing struggle for LGBTQ+ rights in the US, and the need for continued advocacy and education to combat homophobia and discrimination.
It is important to note that while everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, it is not acceptable to use those beliefs to discriminate against others. Homophobia and hate speech have no place in a society that values diversity and inclusivity. Jackson’s comments serve as a reminder of the work that still needs to be done to create a world where everyone is valued and respected, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
