Tammy Faye

Tammy Faye Messner gay iconTammy Faye Messner has died on Friday, July 20th, a day after the airing of her interview on Larry King Live. Tammy Faye was a well known friend of the gay community. She faced Job-like tribulations in her life with unbelievable faith and optimism, despite often being maligned for an emotional sensitivity that lead her frequently to tears.

The original intent of this post was to comment on comments made about her appearance on LKL. It occurred to me that if someone were just starting to date someone, they could use this interview as a quick test to see if their potential boyfriend was a boyfriend-from-hell in the making. If your guy made cynical or derogatory comments about Tammy Faye in her condition, you would know that he is probably incapable of feeling empathy or compassion for any human being. Dump his ass asap and be glad you found out before it was too late.
