Victoria Jackson still cracking us up

by Jeremy Hooper

I just saw that on tomorrow's "Oprah," the retiring doyenne of daytime is hosting a mini "Saturday Night Live" reunion. Unfortunately, one former cast member is still obsessing over gays and "Glee" too much to make it.

This week: Victoria praises "Glee," just not its sprinklings of "immorality"; denies she was being homophobic when she said gay kissing was "sickening" and that "two men on a wedding cake is a comedy skit, not an 'alternate lifestyle'" (among the many other things she said); suggests she might go on "Wife Swap"; and proceeds to "explain" why separation of church and state is a lie and Sue Sylvester is a liar. Enjoy:

Man, that "Glee" gay kiss thing sure caused an uproar. The show is written so well, with such great characters, it's a shame they have to sprinkle immorality all over it. Inside Edition asked me "Why 'Glee'? Why now?" I said, "Why now? I have a column for the first time. And VJwhy 'Glee'? I just watched it last night for the first time."

Now "Wife Swap" calls! My agent thinks they'd swap me with a gay couple. That would be great because then I could show the world that I love gay people and I'm not the homophobic hate-monger the media are making me out to be. The other perk is that I could afford that Tacoma pick-up truck I want and pay off my credit card. Cons: Husband says reality TV is the lowest form of entertainment, and the show is "suggestive" just in the title alone. Teenager says there is no way she will be on television. I think her practicing Rachmaninoff on the piano and Husband lifting weights would make great TV.

My mom calls to tell me that the "Glee" episode is "about God tonight." So I watch it. I give the entertainment a 10 and the fair-and-balanced-about-God a 1. The blasphemy actually made me cry. Amber Riley's character asks the teacher why they are allowed to curse God but not praise Him, my favorite line.

Jane Lynch's character explains that "separation of church and state" is why a public school cannot speak or sing pro-God sentiments, only anti-God sentiments! Neutral means anti? When Jane says the phrase "separation of church and state," I jump out of my chair. That is exactly what I've been studying. She is propagating the lie begun in 1947 in the Everson v. Board of Education case when the Court cited Jefferson's "separation" metaphor, flipped its meaning and pretended it was part of the First Amendment. This is on pages 29-33 of "America's Godly Heritage" by David Barton that I'm reading for my W.I.N. meeting.
