Hold onto your hats, people. Tammy Bruce is an openly gay, pro-choice, non-Christian, but I’m a fan of hers. Seriously. Of course, I disagree with her on those topics, but I appreciate her style and we have a lot of common ground elsewhere. And she is willing to draw some lines where others will not.
I read “The Death of Right and Wrong” and highly recommend it. She is truly a breath of fresh air. She is candid, honest, brave, funny and hard to label.
For example, though she is gay she described some of the horrific things some pro-gay groups have done in schools and said: “It’s time we demand that radical gays leave children alone, no matter how politically incorrect the argument becomes” (and this was written in 2003 . . . things have gotten worse).
No liberal groups are spared, including Planned Parenthood, Jesse Jackson & Co., NOW, academia, the media and the justice system.
She read C.S. Lewis’ classic Mere Christianity and took it very seriously, seeing the wisdom in his moral reasoning.
She doesn’t demonize or hate Christians (I pray that she becomes a Christian one day). In fact, she developed a lot of respect for them when they donated to her NOW organization during the OJ trial. They disagreed on her group’s pro-choice views but they cared about the battered women Tammy was trying to help. Tammy took the unpopular position of being against OJ because of that pesky matter of abusing and murdering his ex-wife, while most NOW leaders took OJ’s side as if the issue at hand were race.
She has a new book out that I’ll be reading soon – The New American Revolution.
