    She was a wonderful woman to the LGBT community. Even though I am not close to any religion I amired her for her faith. We shared one strange thing in common which I found very cool, we both collected frogs. She collected them because of the phrase Fully Rely On God, I collect them because I always catch them when I see them. I e-mailed her once and she was so great that she e-mailed me back! She was so personal in her e-mail and gave me a boost in my self confidence. I will miss her smile and laughter. No matter what people say about her she should always be remember as a kind and loving person who loved everyone not matter what!

  2. Chris R. Says:

    Tammy Faye was a person who loved much. As a child, I watched her children’s program. I will always remeber that she was a woman full of joy, always had a song in her heart and encouraged many in her life. She will be missed by those who know of her whole TV life and Heaven is blessed to have her.

  3. Gale Says:

    ah, there is but one Tammy Faye. I loved and adored you. Will see you in Heaven one day, I know you are up there singing with the angels!

  4. lobo Says:

    I must say she redeemed herself in my eyes when i saw her on that reality show where Ron Jeremey and vanilla ice came out on (the surreal life). Isaw nothing but sincerity and concern for the rest in her eyes……

  5. Sandra MacKenzie Says:

    This was a woman who was always bright, positive and absolutely endearing. I always admired her faith, her humor and her tolerance/acceptance of others. One of her finest moments was shushing Ron Jeremy and making him behave on the Surreal Life!

    Hi Amanda,you might want to read another intrapretetion of the same press release by Stan at Birds Of the Air .I can bash conservative Christianity with the best of them, but what is the answer then, liberal Christianity? Gimme a break!You seem very honest if only a wee bit gullible at times. 1 Cor. 13 tells us that love believes all things and something that is false is NOT a THING. Self-deprecating Christian agit-prop is not all true by default.I commented at Stan’s site that the real Jesus is neither the liberals’ Buddy Jesus nor is it the conservative’s Bully Jesus. Anything other than the real Jesus is just an idol, isn’t it?Take care.
