No, she is serious. She has been part of the religious right circle for a long time now. Even before her big coming out after Obama was elected, my Dominionist religious right mother in-law had seen her speak at a church and talked about her sometimes.
Apparently Victoria’s parents are both born again extreme fundamentalists who brought Victoria up in a very fundamental atmosphere. She kind of got away from it for a little while but eventually got back into it several years ago.

A.k.a., her comedy career dried up. Fairly typical showbiz bio. Ideology is not the prime motivator of a, to put it crudely, attention whore. I question the sincerety of this type. They don’t care what they have to say or do as long as they can draw a crowd. See also: Stephen Baldwin, Kirk Cameron, Dennis Miller, etc.
