Biopic, not documentary? Wow, I wonder who will play Anita. I could see Witherspoon going after that role.
Fuck that God-damned hate-mongering bitch to Hell and back. It took more than 30 years to repeal some of the homophobic laws that were enacted as a result of her Save Our Children campaign.
She labeled EVERY gay man as a pedo and that same hateful label gets hurled dozens of times every week at DataLounge. More than a pie in the face, she deserves a kick in the cunt from every gay man in the nation.
She is a hate filled nasty human being. I don't forgive her for what she did to us, for what she did to me. She is on a very short list of people I don't think I'd swerve for if they stepped in front of my car. What a nasty cunt. I hope she dies a slow and torturous death; poor, friendless and alone.
She's now 71 and feeling a bit melancholy. Anita Bryant is an evil piece of garbage.
Too bad her own disgusting behavior insured no self respecting gay man would would even piss in her were she on fire.
Anita Bryant is never to relieved or forgiven.
Dye "Creepy Carrie's" hair brown & there you have it.
I wish we had that bitch's e-mail address.
How about Ann Coulter for the Bryant role!!
No doubt she regrets joining the Jerry Falwell bandwagon, in hindsight. Preying on her squeaky-clean mommy image, he ruined whatever career she had left (and I wonder if the Repugs were whispering political ambitions in her ear?).
Back then fear of homos was a big-money recruitment tool. And Falwell was the sleaziest of the slimeball, opportunistic "televangelists".
I'd forgive her if she did a disco tribute album, and donated all the proceeds to some anti-bullying campaign.

There's only one obvious choice!
She deserve extra scorn and vilification for unleashing Kathy Lee Gifford on us.
I always figured she would come around in her views towards gays some day. This is great news.
Why did you figure that, R14?
Did she get a gay-handbag?
why most of the posters cling to their grudges- oh wait, this is DL.
I'm glad she's coming around, I believe people naturally become their better selves when they let go of old habits and limiting beliefs and allow love into their lives.
"Hodge revealed to Malkin at GLSEN's Respect Awards. "I was the first gay man—gay person!—she agreed to talk to in 33 years.""
Goodness, she hasn't had her hair done in 33 years?
r17 what makes you think she's coming around? There's no indication of that in the article.
She didn't say she wanted a gay friend. That was Hodge's tongue-in-cheek. He's gay and she opened up about her life and cried.
"It's not the gay people (she objects to), it's the sin" of homosexuality, her husband said. "She tried to make that perfectly clear, but nobody would let it come out that way."
That love the sinner, hate the sin shit is lame and totally unacceptable. It's bullshit.
The list of creditors in Bryant's Tennessee bankruptcy case includes more than 40 employees owed a total of $112,122 by the couple's corporation; the IRS, which is owed more than $80,000; local and state governments, owed $410,000; contractors and commercial lenders, owed more than $250,000; and about 60 retailers and small companies, owed $200,000.
Both Anita and R17 need a big gay cunt punt.
As the former general manager of Bryant's theater, it was Brion Bever whose credit was temporarily ruined when he signed for goods and was pursued in court by creditors. When a small sum of money trickled in one week, he said, Bryant's husband fired him during a dispute about which employees should be paid first.
Anita Bryant approached him on the day he was fired and dismissed all that he had been through.
"Anita looked at me and she says, "I forgive you,' " he recalled. "And I'm like, "For what?' She said, "I forgive you and God will forgive you, too.' And she turned around and walked off."
He is owed about $3,000, having deferred some of his salary so others could be paid.
Now recovered and in a new job, Bever says he was lied to and taken advantage of, but feels worse about the people who did business with Bryant because of him.
No doubt, the R17 Fundie thinks local and state governments are holding a gridge simply because Anita and husband owe them $410,000.

She and her husband don't understand how many lives they affected with all of her hateful talk.

You give them too much credit. I honestly suspect they just don't care. After all, she was doing God's work.
Anita was recently voted America's most admired woman.
If you can't beat 'em, mock 'em.
I vote we name a gay event or a lesbian sex act 'the Anita Bryant'
Like any lesbian/gay sex act involving cumming on someone's face (in homage to the pie in the face) is hereforeto renamed and will be known as performing an Anita Bryant.
Will this news prompt Armistead Maupin to complete the series again

Wouldn't replacing "cream pie" be more appropriate?
