Bob Green and Anita Bryant

Bob Green, Anita Bryant’s Ex-Husband Died Full Of Hatred, Bigotry, and Blaming the Gays Till The Bitter End

Bob Green, was a one time radio DJ who married Miss Oklahoma and orange juice spokesman Anita Bryant and managed her career and then followed her into anti-gay activism, which ultimately destroyed their careers — and marriage in 1980. For more than 30 years Green lived alone full of hate and resentment blaming gays for all of his problems.  Green was found dead Jan. 26, 2012 at his home in Miami Beach. He was 80.

From the Washington Post:

In 1977, Mr. Green and Bryant led a successful effort to repeal Miami-Dade County’s newly passed gay rights ordinance, Bryant out front and the tall, handsome Green behind the scenes, as he had been when he managed her singing career……

Flush with victory in Miami-Dade, the couple founded Anita Bryant Ministries, which offered “deprogramming” and halfway houses for gays and a lecture series called “Design for Successful Living,” aimed at battling divorce……

In 1980, Bryant filed for divorce, a scandal in the Christian circles where she’d been revered. Mr. Green begged her to reconcile in an open letter: “Let us both put aside all other earthly considerations and reunite in Christian love.”Bryant wasn’t interested. She told People magazine: “Divorce is against everything I believe in. I wanted to save my marriage, but I decided that was not the route to go.”

The following year, she told a woman’s magazine that the marriage “was never much good to begin with” and hinted that both had been unfaithful. 

In 2007, Mr. Green told the Miami Herald that he blamed gay people for the turmoil in his life because “their stated goal was to put [Bryant] out of business and destroy her career. And that’s what they did. It’s unfair.”

No one should ever celebrate the death of another but in Bob Greene’s case  it’s a very hard thing not to do. 

So many forget that Bryant and Green obsessed when Miami-Dade County added an amendment to its human rights ordinance, making it illegal to discriminate in housing, employment, loans, and public accommodations based on “affectional or sexual preference.” And that the Bryants’ are the “originator” of the lie that children would be molested or converted by gay perverts. “As a mother,” Anita shamelessly explained, “I know that homosexuals cannot biologically reproduce children; therefore, they must recruit our children.”

Bryant and Greene fanned the flames of anti-gay bigotry with speaking tours that made her a national spokesperson against “homosexual rights.” She was the star attraction at rallies that led to the repeal of gay rights in numerous cities, and she came to California to support the Briggs Initiative in 1978, which failed, but would have banned homosexuals or anyone advocating the “gay lifestyle” from teaching in public schools. “I don’t hate the homosexuals,” she wrote in a fundraising letter. “But as a mother, I must protect my children from their evil influence.” and promised she would “seek help and change for homosexuals, whose sick and sad values belie the word ‘gay’ which they pathetically use to cover their unhappy lives.”

Well you do reap what you sow.  Anita Bryant and Bob Green sowed hate. And for that they lost their fortune, their OJ gig, and their marriage. And in the end Bob Green died alone, bitter and filled with hate..
