Victoria Jackson's Connecticut School Shooting Post: Former 'SNL' Star's Tone Deaf Comment

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Tx4obama (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Victoria Jackson sank to a new low with a post on her Facebook page just hours after the tragedy began unfolding at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.

The former "SNL" star is no stranger to stoking controversy. She repeatedly made headlines throughout the presidential election, most notably for her response to Todd Akin's legitimate rape controversy.

But this post, quoting her friend and fellow Tea Partier Jim Riley, is her most shockingly tone deaf yet, echoing a sentiment that seems more like something you'd hear from Fred Phelps:

My friend Jim Riley posted: "Wasn't the Connecticut killer just doing what abortionists do every day? It's a wonder we don't have more 20 year old "dads" doing what women and doctors have been an accomplice to for years in America. When you forget the TEN COMMANDMENTS, people, THIS is what you get."

The post quickly began filling up with angry comments, with one person suggesting that Jackson should have to "go before all of the families that lost loved ones and explain to them why 'this is what they get'".

1. But what is the flip side of those Ten Commandmants

such a vengeful, hateful God. Obey or be smited.

Victoria Jackson is just another publicity seeking faux Christian who wants to push her religion on to others.

7. I agree, but wouldn't call her a false Christian.

I'm not a Christian, but I know there are many varieties of nominal Christians and it's historically been dangerous to call some true and others false.

2. Well, now I know why she was so good at playing a ditz on SNL...

Because she is one in real life.

3. I normally avoid both gun and religion topics, but this pisses me off.

I hope I don't offend anyone too badly by saying what I'm about to say, but it's possible. I'd like to ask Ms. Jackson something:

I'm not religious, but let's pretend it's all true for a moment.

Your god is all powerful. He created the universe and everything in it. He can do anything.

Is that same god so petty, so self-absorbed, that he needs to kill innocent children because we didn't follow ten rules?

Who would offer their worship to such a cruel, sadistic, tyrannical entity?

What's more, who would take advantage of a school shooting in which two dozen kids died to promote their 'benevolent' religion?

It's all a bunch of bullshit.

5. I'm glad we do not use the term "retard" anymore...

...to describe people like V.J. People with serious learning disabilities are usually not this mean-spirited and I would not want to give anyone the impression that they are by comparing them to this asshole.
