“Gays Rescued Me,” Says Tammy Faye

Tammy Faye Messner made an appearance on Larry King last night. Hopefully you all had a chance to hear what she had to say – if not, you’re in luck, because reader Alan sent along this collection of clips from the interview, including Tammy Faye discussing how the gays lent her a helping hand after Jim Bakker fucked her over.

Son Jay also points out that Tammy Faye helped provide the bridge between the Evangelical movement and gay churches, particularly Troy Perry’s Metropolitan Community Church. Even if you’re not Christian or religious in any way, shape or form, you can’t deny Tammy Faye’s impact on our world. And, despite the terminal cancer, she’s still as cheery as ever. And her eyelashes still look swell!

Here’s the transcript of Tammy Faye’s appearance. Read it and weep – literally, it’s heartbreaking.
