Goodbye, Tammy Faye

Whatever may be said about Tammy Faye [Bakker] Messner, she was a compassionate woman who led the evangelical community to embrace AIDS patients and other previously "untouchable" communities.

Jim and I strongly recommend the biographical documentary Eyes of Tammy Faye and her son's autobiography Son of a Preacher Man for a fuller portrait of this complex and caring woman and the controversy that surrounded her.
