Former "Saturday Night Live" star Victoria Jackson is a Tennessee resident, she announced recently on her Facebook fan page.

She wrote: “I disappeared for awhile because my family just moved to TN!! I love it so much! Smack dab in the buckle of the Bible belt. I'm gonna fight the Murfreesboro Mosque and Agenda 21 because I love this land, God's country. One of my neighbors keeps his horse in his front yard! I love that! I saw a cardinal, a bunny, a bird's nest and a calf in the middle of the highway. I'm in heaven!”

Her page doesn't specify whether she is living in Murfreesboro. Anti-Muslim groups fought the mosque in court there on the issue of public meeting notice, but many openly stated that their true concern was the promotion of Islam as a religion. The new mosque opened last year after a federal court intervened.

Agenda 21 is a United Nations agreement to support sustainable development. It has riled some conservatives who believe it infringes on property rights and usurps local government powers.
