Bakker Asks Fans To Pray For Her As She Prepares To Die

Beloved US televangelist TAMMY FAYE BAKKER is close to death as she battles lung cancer, revealing her physicians have stopped treatment. In a post on her website, Bakker has asked her fans to pray for her as she nears the end of her life. The brave celebrity writes, "The doctors have stopped trying to treat the cancer and so now it's up to God and my faith." Bakker, who was first diagnosed with cancer in 1996 and learned the disease had returned to her lungs in 2004, reveals she looks "like a scarecrow" and now weighs a shocking 65 pounds (143.3 kilograms). She adds, "I need God's miracle to swallow."

I saw the interview that Tammy did with Larry King on his show and I have been thinking about her every since especially because, she said she didnt know what would happen to her when she dies and I thougth it was so sad because everybody should know that death is not to be feared. the bible says that death is like been alseep. you just go to sleep and your not suffering anymore and also the bible speaks about a resurrection in the near future. just like jesus resurrected Lazrus and many more he will bring those sleep in death back to life again and I want tammy to know that.so if you could tell her that for me I would feel so much better.the scripture is Ecc 9:5, 10

She's come a long way since spending her flock's money years ago! From arrogant prima donna to "feel sorry and pray for me." God's punishment. .

Annika, I agree that maybe I shouldn't gloat over her dying. I don't like to speak ill of the dead, so I make sure to do it before they die, lol! But seriously, part of me likes her because she's cool with gays (I'm gay), althought I'm sure she still believes it's a sin -- love the sinner, hate the sin, and that everyone is doomed to hell unless we give ourselves to Jesus. And I agree with you that she probably knew what was going on back in the good old PTL days when they were lavishly spending their flock's money, but pled ignorance by saying "I'm just the woman, I don't know anything about the business side of things." And you're right, why should anyone feel sorry for people who give their money to those kind of evangelists?

That was funny, my two cents! (speaking ill of the dead BEFORE they're gone, I'll have to remember that one). I was a bit harsh earlier (bad day at work) didn't mean to bite heads off. You have points on both sides, actually. Perhaps it is karma that she has cancer but I think they got the wrong spouse, should have been good ol' boy Jimmy instead. And I don't buy the damsel in distress, "oh my gosh, is that where our money came from??" stuff either. I hate it when women play that card (kind of like when they cry for cops when pulled over--please...) I thought we were supposed to be treated equal? Notice how that argument goes out the door when a girl gets in trouble?? I've done it myself (I don't cry for cops, but I have TOTALLY played the dumb blonde on many occasions). I'll have to work on that! LOL.

Look I believe in what goes around comes around, too, but I think it was mostly her husband funneling the funds away. (Not defending her, she likely buried her head in the sand, purposefully maybe). But I cannot gloat over the impending death of someone. She is obviously very scared and for that I feel bad for her. I hope she goes peacefully and quickly.

Annika, maybe if it was YOUR hard-earned money that you invested in them, and that they STOLE from you, you'd be happy she's suffering much like they made others suffer. Just like those Enron monsters, they'll die and hopefully burn in hell.

I knew that would be the rebuttal. The difference is that Enron's people labored for those jerks and expected them to invest in their future and provide for them. It was swindled right under their noses. The Jesus freaks who send in their life savings? Where did they think it was going? They knew what the Bakker palaces looked like. How did they think it was getting paid for? Maybe I'm a cold-hearted bitch but the only people I felt sorry for were the elderly folks who aren't "modern-day criminal" savvy enough to have known better. And there are plenty of new Jimmy Bakkers out there, just better at hiding the assets, I'm sure. I still don't think gloating over someone's impending death is cool--although I have no problems with death row inmates' so I guess my values are a little skewed anyway! I guess I think God has bigger fish to fry than Tammy Faye Bakker.
