Tammy Faye Messner Dead At 65

I remember Tammy Faye and her then-husband Jim Bakker using religion and those who are religiously gullible (like Bush and the Religious "right" do today) to rake in millions of dollars. Then husband Jim was discovered having an affair with Jessica Hahn, a church secretary, and their ivory palace collapsed.

I choose to put Tammy Faye in the same category as Jerry Falwell. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Mixed feelings for me.

Cancer is such a hard way to go. I'm sure she must have gotten pretty realistic about her life in that time frame.

Somewhere, there must have been the realization that prayer alone wouldn't do it to keep her alive.

On the other hand, she was able to slide, where her former husband, Jim, paid for his crime.
