Her claims about President Obama being a communist is more than enough for me to figure out that girlfriend is a couple of fries short of a Happy Meal.
But her newest rant deserves some attention, not because of who she is, but partly because of what she said and the role she likes to play.
Those who read this blog probably know that the one thing which sets me off is when someone attacks gay families.
Well Victoria just set me off:
Suddenly, the gym CNN is blasting a story of how a homosexual man is helping other homosexuals adopt children. He speaks about the personal, passionate sacrifice of his time for this cause as if he were Mother Theresa. I’m appalled. Homosexuals-adopting-children is child abuse. No, it’s pedophilia and sexual molestation. Teaching a young mind, a clean slate, an innocent soul that homosexuality is a natural, normal and moral lifestyle is evil. How is gay adoption different from the recently jailed Penn State Jerry Sandusky, child molester case?
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” Isaiah 5:20
Since sistah girl likes to repeat Bible verses, I've got one for her:
Thou shalt no bear false witness.
I know some folks will say "who cares," but follow my thinking.
Jackson has in the past whined that people like her, who supposedly stand up for "values" and "morality" are supposedly unfairly labeled as bigots.
In my world - which is the real world - when you falsely attack gays and accuse them of being pedophiles, that is bigotry. When you attack innocent same-sex families, that is bigotry.
She is so indicative of what bothers me about religious right groups, spokespeople, and those who profess to be evangelical right-wing Christian. It's as if they actually expect the gay community to be quiet when they dehumanize us and insult our families.
However, if we respond, we are the bad guys. We are the intolerant ones.
It's as if they think that the gay community should sit there and allow ourselves to be disrespected and allow our families to be attacked.
People like Victoria Jackson seem to think that their religious beliefs is a gateway for them to say anything about gay community without the courtesy of a reprisal.
Girlfriend had better get a grip because this gay guy has always believed in the maxim of "if you don't want trouble, don't start trouble."
I've already given her my opinion of her words. Feel free if you want to.
Editor's note - there is a link to her column in this post. Feel free to respond. But remember any profanity or insults will be used by Jackson to make herself seem like the victim.
