Transcript ts Community Newt ANITA SAYS, 'MY WORLD IS CRUMBLING' MIAMI — Singer/activist Anita Bryant still lives with her family here in a 23-room mansion at Miami Beach, but outside of fundamentalist religious circles, her popularity has been waning for some time. Some have compared her isolation with that of Richard Nixon at San Clemente. The Gay Teachers initiative in California has further frustrated Bryant's campaign against the "militant homosexual" who she says is destroying America and her personal life. All of this, Bryant contends, has damaged her health, caused her children to be harassed, reduce her family income drastically and is probably going to cost her the Florida Citrus Commission orange juice account in 1979. The national publicity afforded Bryant has caused "my world to crumble" as she can no longer "go out and play some tennis or water ski — do a lot of things. I haven't been able to lead anything like a normal life for any sustained period for two years." She believes that history "will (because of the almost total abomination of the entertainment industry and the media) picture me as some kind of witch who was out to do away with the homosexuals. But if it were to come from almighty God, if that were possible, I think It would be a totally different thing." Bryant is convinced that she Is a maligned martyr. She is alternately angry, confused, and stunned by the treatment she has received. She urges, "The reaction has been a real rude awakening for me and I guess it affected me very deeply. There hasn't been any area of our individual lives or our family's life that hasn't been touched." "I he singer is currently send- ing out pleas to "fight toe militant homosexuals" through her new "Protect America's Children" organization. Her appearances before religious rallies are continuing but infrequent. Bryant does not take any blame for her present state, nor does she place the blame on the public's rejection of her as a person. Who is responsible? — "the militant homosexual." She says that homosexuals have so abused her that she is now physically III and unable to face the world. A sad and isolated woman, she now often repeats, "I am not capable of taking that kind of rejection, physically, verbally — the boycotting and the threats and all that." Bob Kunst, the Miami activist who again placed Gay rights before the electorate in another initiative on November 7, believes "she is getting everything she deserves. She is a confused woman who is a major danger to the country because of her fanaticism. However, she has also helped the movement because she gives us solidarity, something for us to focus on." JANE FONDA • • • dented post Fonda branded 'traitor' MW YOMC WWI tmvKt The California Senate has rejected Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr.'s nomination of actress Jane Fonda to the State Arts Council. After a debate in which the former antiwar activist was branded a "traitor" and a "collaborator" with the North Vietnamese, the senators voted 28 to 5 not to permit Miss Fonda to serve on the council, which dispenses grants to promote the arts. Sen. Ruben Ayala, a Democrat from Chino who led the fight against the nomination, declared: "She waived her right to serve on appointed commissions when she went to North Vietnam and did her little thing." Anita & Miss Lillian Split Over Gay Issue Lillian Carter, the President's outspoken mother, now has "absolute disgust" for singer/ activist Anita Bryant. Miss Lillian recently told the Los Angeles Times she was once "crazy about her — the sweet-** est little singer — and thought she should have won Miss America that year she didn't." What caused the change in attitude? .-.■ 7"Now I feel abso- lute disgust for her because of her position against homosexuals," Miss Lillian responded. She said she has told Bryant that she Is wrong and that she should "shut Up and mind her own-business." In an aside, the controversial woman said thai she wasat Studio 54, New York's famous disco, where she met many "really nice looking men." Later she discovered "they 'Sex-slave' beauty won't be extradited British authorities will not extradite fugitive beauty queen Joyce McKinney on kidnapping-for- sex charges, but a U.S. magistrate in Ashviile, N.C., has ordered her to undergo psychiatric tests. Miss McKinney, 28, of Minneapolis, N.C., was arrested Wednesday on a ' charge of giving false Information to obtain a passport That charge, according to tbe FBI, stemmed from a British investigation of Miss McKinney for the alleged 1977 kidnapping of a Mormon missionary. Miss McKinney's former boyfriend. Prosecutors said Kirk Anderson, then 21, of Provo, Utah, was taken to a remote cottage and shackled to a bed where he was forced to have sex with Miss McKinney.
