The Amazing Story of the Televangelist and His Gay Grandson
This article in Details magazine, The Amazing Story of the Televangelist and His Gay Grandson, was difficult to read. I got choked up reading about the suicide of Oral Roberts' gay son Ronnie, then I got nauseated reading Oral's sermon against homosexuality, then I got angry reading how Randy Roberts Potts was denied access to his grandmother's funeral, then choked up again at the end of the article. Thank you, Randy, for sharing your story.
I attended Oral Roberts University for 2 years (1980-1983) and reading this article brought back a lot of negative memories. I'm grateful for the friendships I made during my time at ORU, and especially the relationship I now have with my godsons John and Sterling, the sons of 2 of my dearest friends from my ORU years.
