Anita Bryant makes a comeback; better luck next year, disco

by Jeremy Hooper

And now in "you can't make this up" book-blurbing news: The spoil to 1970's Milk, Anita Bryant, is temporarily coming out of "culture war" retirement, contributing a quote to the back cover of Sally Kern's new book. Right Wing Watch got the goods:

Sally Kern Book"I was before her time, but Sally Kern is here for such a time as this. I am grateful for her life and her friendship. Reading The Stoning of Sally Kern was at times like déjà vu, reminding me of my stand in Dade County in 1977. I can highly recommend this book to anyone who loves God, their family, and their country. It is a must-read for any believing woman or man who wants to make a difference in these perilous times. Those soldiers who have counted the cost of character assassination or endured other losses yet are willing to take a stand in truth and love for the glory of God, our children, and future generations will especially enjoy this inspiring book."
-Anita Bryant

Ah, so sweet. Glad to see these two have put down the gay-targeted torch long enough to pass it.

But let's see here: Anita is best known for the claim that gays are out to recruit America's kids, and Sally most recognized by her comments suggesting gays are more of a threat than terrorists. So let this be a lesson to you, kids who are about to get grounded for doing something shitty. Just say something uber-nasty about a certain population of people and justify it with your Christian faith, then you too can morph yourself into the victim. Make money off of it, even.
