- Bette Midler was born December 1, 1945. God gave her a megaphone in the form of a singing voice, as well as acting and comedy skills/talents. The "Divine Miss M" used the megaphone to shout "Sin, sin, sin!" to the world.
- Today after a 40+-year career she's received Academy, Grammy, Golden Globe and Tony awards. She kicked it all off in the bath houses of New York, courting fags, as her core audience. She and Barry Manilow performed in the Continental Baths, a "gay bathhouse"—and he later produced her first album. It was during this time at the fag-bathhouse that she built up her core following. "Despite the way things turned out [with the AIDS crisis], I'm still proud of those days. I feel like I was at the forefront of the gay liberation movement, and I hope I did my part to help it move forward. So, I kind of wear the label of 'Bathhouse Betty' with pride." ("Bette Midler," Houston Voice, October 1998.)
- She trades on her Jew-status in a grotesque shtick that combines presumptuous suggestions that she's got special status with indulgent excuse-making for sin. Voted "Most Talkative" in high school in Honolulu, she's been blaspheming God since.
- Here are some excerpts from appearance on Larry King Live where she bragged about being out front for fags:
- KING: You've always had -- now, how do you explain this? We've talked about this in the past, your following among gays. Why were you…
- MIDLER: Oh, thank God!
- KING: Why were you -- did the gay population love you?
- MIDLER: You know, I think I was the first person to go on national television and sort of talk about them. I was working a gay bathhouse, and I was...
- KING: On the way up?
- MIDLER: I was on my way up. And I did not -- you know, to me, it was nothing. You know, I was so poor. I was working in the theater for $200 a week, and I was so poor. And when this man who owned a bathhouse called me up and said, I'll give you $300 a night, I said, You'll give me what? I mean, I was so stunned that there was this kind of the money in the world. And when he said, It's a gay bathhouse, is that a problem for you? And I had no idea what he was talking about, so I said, no. No, that's no problem! Where do I go? So I went on Johnny Carson. He asked me what I was doing, and I said, I work in a bathhouse. I sing in a bathhouse. And I think people were stunned, and I think gay people were -- they sat up and said, Oh, my God. Someone is telling our tale.
- KING: She understands us.
- MIDLER: Not that she understands us, someone has been there. Someone from the straight world has been there and is sort of telling our tale. And it wasn't just that. It was also I was very noisy. You know, I was outrageous. I was having a lot of fun. I was...*** I think I just have a queer eye.
- This is Midler's letter (posted on Perez Hilton-the-whore's blog) bemoaning suicide among "gay youth"—the topic all proud sinners love to jump on to further justify raising a generation of worthless good-for-nothing-cursed brats—as they try to blame this mess they've made on God and His standard. Of course she uttered not a word about STOP SINNING! She acknowledges these kids act like beasts—then spits on the means to fix that, calling it "hate" to so much as hint that perhaps being a fag is a bad idea. (See Letter)
- Midler could have used the talent God gave her to publish these words—instead of wallowing in proud sin.
- Midler has made a career of—and gotten rich from—substituting her goofy notions of right and wrong for God's plain standards. She claims to be part of the chosen people of God—she is therefore duty-bound to know the Word of God, and to tell the truth to her fellow man. She was given the means to do so on a grand scale—and she failed on a grand scale. When Midler came to Kansas in concert, Westboro picketed her; she commented on their presence, as she crowed to a "sexually ambiguous" audience. She has known for all these years that what she is doing is wrong. She used her influence, nevertheless, to teach people to sin and defy God.
