Former Saturday Night Live cast member Victoria Jackson has gone viral after she condemned homosexuality at her city’s town hall meeting.

Victoria Jackson was a cast member on the long-running show from 1986 to 1992, and starred in a number of comedy films in the 80s and early 90s.

At the town hall meeting in Franklin Tennesse, Jackson spoke out against the city’s proposed Gay Pride Parade saying that “God hates sodomy”.

“He hates homosexuality – he said it’s an abomination. And God hates sexual immorality, all kinds,” she says.

“And God hates pride. Like, one of the most things he hates is pride,” she adds, before reading a bible verse.

“When pride comes, then comes disgrace but with humility comes wisdom. The Lord detests all the proud of heart.”

Jackson’s anti-LGBTQIA+ rants are not a new phenomenon, in 2011  she called “Glee” disgusting for showing 2 men kissing.

During her time as an SNL regular, she often appeared on the show’s recurring Weekend Update segment as a news correspondent who would stray off-topic, recite poetry, and do handstands or backbends on the desk.

Jackson also became known for her impersonations of Roseanne Barr, Sally Struthers and Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Ironically, despite calling sexual immorality a sin, she starred in the 1988 film Casual Sex?.
