Oral Roberts' gay grandson


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. My first post. Be kind or NOT...LOL...

To be frank..I was raised fundie (NOT Quiverfull) but I have ALOT of problems with the whole thing. ALOT. I used to read alot at the Walk Away From Fundamentalism forum. I did watch the Duggars when I had cable and I have downloaded episodes from ITunes and I am currently reading "A Love that Multiples". I find them utterly and horribly fascinating.

I also read Stacy McDonald's blog and she is horrible. I wrote to her once a few years back asking her about my personal situation regarding having been diagnosed with schizophrenia and having parents who refused (and still refuse) to accept it. They have literally contributed to making my life a living hell. Her answer was a bunch of scriptures and she made sure to bold the biblical command to honor one's parents. I'm sure I probably still have the email if anyone wants to see it...

Anyway I will write more about all of that later..on to the subject of this post!

I didn't know that Oral Roberts had a gay son and grandson....


The one thing that can be counted on is that no matter how conservative or religious fundamentalist one might be, sooner or later your family will produce someone in the family who happens to be gay just like every other American family. It's the law of averages and it will eventually happen.

Thanks for sharing this. This is so interesting to me. I grew up in Tulsa and went to high school with the daughter of Oral's son, Ron, who killed himself. He was struggling with addiction, and was also gay, if I recall correctly.

Rachel (the granddaughter) used to tell such awful stories about her dad's parents. Not surprisingly, Oral only celebrated his two kids that did not leave the fold.

Wow, this was my first post - it took a story about my hometown to bring me out of lurkdom! :lol:

Welcome, mugglemin! I would be interested in Stacy's e-mail if you wish to share.

Oral Roberts' organization impoverished a friend's widowed mother. When the woman's children beseeched Oral for mercy & a refund, Oral's org wrote the mother to advise her that her children were in league with the devil.

I thus have special compassion for Oral's children who suffered their father's lack of love.

OP, I hope your condition is being properly treated!! There is hope with good meds and caring folks to guide you. I hope too that you haven't let your experience sour you on Jesusz. But however you stand now, you are welcome here!

      Planning on scheduling my ankle surgery around Trump's Georgia trial - if I'm forced to be off my feet, I might as well be entertained.

      Stupid loneliness!
      Kid 1 went back to college (yeah! But sad foe me, she stayed with me all summer. It was nice to start a new phase in our mother/daughter relationship)
      Zero prospects on dates. (Not that I have tried online dating, scared of that but I have reached put to a new group at church, etc.
      I asked a friend to go to dinner the other night so I wasn't eating alone, again. The friend had plans, all my friends always have plans. I see stuff on social media, I'm never invited. I'm single, I'm the 3rd or 5th wheel.
      My one parent friend at kid 2's fall sport won't be there because their daughter made varsity (Yeah for her!!! Seriously happy for her. Sad for me for another sport I basically sit alone, did that majority of spring and summer sporting events.)
      And now I'm crying as my mom told me 2 different funny stores that former teachers remembered about my twin. Both stories were about how they got a crack out of my twin's antics (my parents went to a funeral today and saw former colleagues). Teachers remember me (after all I was a twin and teachers' kid) but none would have memorable stories of me. 
      I feel invisible. 
      Don't worry, this will pass,  it always does. I just need a pity party for a few days. I'm not in anyway going to harm myself. As lonely as I am, I have a very full life I (usually) love. I just needed to vent and cry for a moment. 
      If you are still reading this, thanks Fjer. 😊

      Absolutely awful about the fires on Maui. In 2019, I stayed in Lahaina. I liked to sit on the sea wall, which is the only structure left now, and watch the water. People are receiving help, but many had to leave pets. Please donate to the Maui Humane Society, which is leading efforts to find, treat, and reunite pets.

      Nebraska’s new football coach, who is involved in an organization called Man Up Ministries, labels certain players “Alphas” and sometimes “extreme Alphas” and the local paper has a nice piece on why people objecting to the term “alpha male” are wrong and it has a “nice ring”. 🤮🤮🤮🤮
