Miss Tammy Faye

For some reason, the gays, myself included, just love Tammy Faye Messner. I’m not sure why, but I do. Maybe it’s because, while she is a Christian, she’s not a hate-filled Christian like so many others. Or maybe it’s because she bares a resemblance to Dolly Parton (blonde hair, heavy makeup). I’m not sure. It doesn’t matter.

What matters is that she’s sick. Very sick. She has stage 4 cancer in her colon and lungs. She’s down to 97 pounds.

While I don’t pray, I am sending my positive thoughts her way. The thought of her so ill or even dying makes me really, really sad and again, I’m not sure why beyond general compassion for my fellow (wo)man. Maybe it’s because, even through all of the drama of her life, through all the turbulent hears, she always kept her faith. I can, though I don’t share it, at least admire her for it. Throughout all of her trials, she’s always been a shining example to her fellow Christians and to people in general of how to live as a good human being: treating everyone with love and respect.

I hope that she goes into remission. I hope even more that she’s fully cured.

we love you tammy faye! |

    Like you ~ always did like her and thought in earlier years she had a great voice…
