"You know something? The devil's tried to kill me ever since [birth]. He has, he's been on my tail. But you know what? God says, 'Greater is he that's in you than he that is of this world.' So [the devil] ain't no match for God!"

-- Bigot queen Anita Bryant, speaking to a crowd in her birthplace of Barnsdall, Oklahoma. She also asked them, "How many of you remember Florida orange juice?"

Video of her remarks, which she made in 2005, surfaced late last week. I've included it after the jump; the quote above starts around the five-minute mark.
