Anita Bryant Wants A Gay Best Friend

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

Many of you posters are so full of hatred. Is that what gay pride means to you? I marched against Anita in the late 70s. She was not alone in her views. The world has moved on and its time to forgive her.

She was a major hateful cunt who made the lives of young gay men hellish in her time.
It would seem from the article that she's also involved in slimy business practices.

Please explain where you're seeing the hate? Is it "hate" to point to the fact that she's a hate-monger and she bilked people out of thousands upon thousands of dollars. She caused people to lose their homes and livelihood.
She caused states to pass laws to prevent gays from adopting children. She's a monster.
Forgive her? She belongs in jail.

Let her earn it by working to undo the wrong that she's done in the past. When she starts trying to do right by the countless people who have been hurt by her words and her actions, then we can talk about forgiveness.

I wonder what Rosie O'Donnell would have to say about Anita. Rosie contributed thousands of dollars to lawyers who where fighting Florida's gay adotption ban. Bryant was the one who led the fight for that ban. The KKKristian bitch's speeches connected gay men with pedos. She wanted gay teachers to be fired from schools.
Florida's ex-governor Reuben Askew died this past week. He was a champion of Bryant and signed the law preventing gays from adopting. It took decades to have the law overturned, with thanks to Rosie.
