Heaven's Gate (Or, The Eyes Had It)

Here's to the memory of Tammy Faye Bakker. It's hard to believe I'd be mourning the death of a televangelist, but anyone who's seen the excellent (and hilarious) documentary The Eyes of Tammy Faye knows that despite her semi-checkered past, the woman was truly a good Christian through and through.

Never thought I'd say something like that either - but when a Christian leader actually embodies what Christianity is about, it's worth noting.

you are forgetting her most valuable contribution. it wasnt PTL, or her brave battle with disease or her dignity under duress or even her adorable son. it was....

the Jim J and Tammy Faye Show...

it was soooo BALLSY of her to do a show with the GAYEST man ever to live in the US - very telling.

oh, and lest we forget the tattooed makeup. that is a commitment to beauty that our stars and starlets today just dont have
